Overview

About the property

For cozy, intimate holidays, surrounded by nature and culture.

A charming stone and wood cottage house in a quiet and beautiful street (dike) at Amsterdam's picturesque suburb 'Durgerdam', just a mile away from vivid Amsterdam city center. It's a beautiful, luxurious and cozy holiday house at the IJ lake, built by the owner, Richard.

Very nice to spent your holidays here, with your family with children, or 2 couples.

It's a perfect combination to meet art and culture in crowdy Amsterdam-center, and coming home at your peaceful and quiet holiday home.

Durgerdam is just a few minutes drive away from the tram to the center of Amsterdam. By car it is 10 minutes drive to the city-center, with a bike 25 minutes, or 15 minutes by ferry to Central Station, directly and free of charge.

We are happy to advice you the best route for your day trips.

Ook we recommend visiting beautiful and famous old Dutch villages like Monnickendam, Marken, Alkmaar and Edam.

There is a large free car parking space for your car, just 100 meters walk from the holiday house. The bus stop is next to our house.

In fall, X-mas time / winter, spring or summer season, there's always a good occasion. If you love nature, the countryside and lots of different animals, you will feel happy here!

For food-lovers: In the full kitchen you can cook a good meal, there is a food store and a restaurant nearby with very good local products.

Views over the IJ Lake (= IJsselmeer) can be enjoyed during a walk or bike trip. In the summer, you can ook take a swim! Through all seasons, we have amazing sunrises and sunsets, see pictures :-)

The house is nicely furnished with all modern comforts, underfloor heating and good clean beds. You can relax on the terrace in the private garden at the back of the house. Sit under the pear tree with a view over the countryside. We providence a barbeque and a small chimney fireplace for a nice romantic evening. For the children we have a large trampoline.

Kitchen and bath towels (2 p. P.), Toilet paper, soap, salt & pepper are all provided. Bed-linen are included usefull. We offer our washing machine and ironing for long-stays.

TV, good and fast WiFi internet available. (Free of charge)

Unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Ruth were ever so helpful and very friendly. I was in contact with them before the trip and they already started making our trip a wonderful one. They greeted us warmly upon our arrival and explained how to get around and the places of interest in detail. The house is very cosy and we found everything we needed as it was very equipped. The views are spectacular (coming form a sunny island we are not sure to having streams and swans in our back yard) and the morning view from our bedroom made me start the day with a smile on my face. Worth every cent we paid for. Thank you Richard and Ruth :)

A memorable vacation

  • 4 of 5

Small but very cosy and clean vacation home with enough space for 2-4 people on the outskirts of Amsterdam in the Waterland. Beautiful scenery with lots of opportunities for adventures by bike or car. If you are looking for a place to find peace and quiet after a long day of exploring Amsterdam, this is the place! The hosts Richard and Ruth were most accommodating, always there when you needed them but never intrusive. They equipped us with lots of advice on what to see and do and even provided us with bikes to get to the tram station a few miles from the rental. Thank you, Richard and Ruth for a wonderful time in the Netherlands!!

A terrific holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Richard and Ruth's vacation home is the perfect place for a holiday visit. The home was clean and fitted with everything one might need for a stay. The back patio looking onto the nature preserve was lovely and a relaxing way to end a day of touring around Amsterdam. The city was easily accessible by train and the house was set in a cyclist's paradise. Richard and Ruth were extremely helpful and welcoming without being too much of a presence. If I were to come back to the Netherlands, I'd definitely book a stay here.

Ruheoase trifft Lifestylemetropole

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren Ende Januar 2016 in dem liebevoll erbauten und eingerichteten Ferienhäuschen. Unsere Suche nach Ruhe (ich war im 6. Monat schwanger) und frischer Landluft am Wasser wurde in Dungerdam voll bedient. Mit der Hilfe der super netten Vermieter brachten aber auch Ausflüge nach Amsterdam und in die Umgebung tolle Abwechslung. Perfekt um die Seele baumeln zu lassen und gleichzeitig im Nu (mit der Bahn) mitten im (Party)Leben zu sein. Das kleine Häuschen ist genau richtig für eine Familie mit Kindern oder 4 Freunde. Die beiden voneinander getrennten Schlafzimmer liegen im Obergeschoss. Das '"Elternschlafzimmer" bietet einen traumhaften Ausblick ins Grüne, direkt vom bequemen Doppelbett aus. Unser Mops war gerne willkommen. Die Vermieterin hat ein tolles Händchen für die Einrichtung bewiesen. Wir kommen gerne wieder - diesmal mit Kleinkind :)

Exzellent!

  • 5 of 5

Eine großartige Destination, alle Daumen hoch! Vermieter Richard hat ein solides kleines Holzhaus gebaut, das toll durchdacht ist und alles hat, was man für einen komfortablen und entspannten Aufenthalt benötigt. Sogar eine Fußbodenheizung wurde verlegt. Das Häuschen hat zwei Etagen, die durch eine (steile) Holztreppe miteinander verbunden sind. In der oberen Etage gibt es zwei Schlafzimmer und bequeme Betten für 4 Personen (1 breites Doppelbett, 2 Einzelbetten). Das Häuschen liegt naturnah und ruhig im Garten hinter dem Haus von Richard und seiner Frau Ruth und verfügt über eine Terrasse und Blick ins Grüne. Ruth und Richard sind sehr sympathische, entspannte und sehr hilfsbereite Gastgeber. Es war uns eine große Freude, sie kurz kennenlernen zu dürfen. Das Haus hat eine optimale Verkehsanbindung nach Amsterdam. Durch Richards Einweihung in die "Geheimnisse" des Amsterdammer Park an Rails / Öffentlichen Nahverkehrs kommt man sehr preisgünstig und schnell in die Stadt. Aber auch Ausflüge in die Region sind vom Ferienhäuschen aus problemlos und unmittelbar möglich.

Wir hoffen sehr, dass wir bald einmal wiederkommen können.

Amsterdam in der Natur

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für 4 Tage im Februar in diesem süßen Haus. Es ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und sehr gepflegt. Der Blick aus dem Wohnzimmer ist traumhaft schön und die Lage könnte kaum besser sein: mitten in der Natur an einem Damm mit wunderschönen Holzhäusern, fernab von Touristen und doch super zentral. Mit dem Auto ist man in wenigen Minuten am P&R von wo aus man für 5 € für 2 Personen mit der Bahn ins Zentrum gelangt und das in rund 10 Minuten. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und überaus hilfsbereit. Mit Kind und Hund einfach wunderbar und sehr empfehlenswert.
