Serene, Beautiful, YES !!
What a fascinating village to stay in uniquely water bound surrounded by grass lands with plenty of bird life. The view from the lounge over the adjacent lands with the water course in between has to be seen , certainly not your average B & B or tourist area, with a local pub that opens late afternoon and a great restaurant De witte swean a 10 minute stroll away .
And a short bus ride to Amsterdam.
With great hosts George is amazing and very helpful , which made our stay even more memorable .
George many thanks to you & your family Greg & Ann
Simple, peaceful, relaxing!
Perfect stay just outside of Amsterdam. I could sit and stare out the windows all day. Not super fancy, but our needs were comfortably met. We enjoyed the heated floors, and the shower was so lovely. The towels were quiet rough, but nothing bad enough to take away from this magic of this place. We enjoyed taking the canoe out very much. Also, the bikes were fun to stroll around in and also convenient to get to the bus stop (10 minute walk, 2 minute ride). I would reccomend this location!
For our future guests) towels is an extra service , you can always bring your own of course !
Great little house!
What a great town and so close to Amsterdam. The bus is very easy into the city, and then you’re back in a quiet space looking at the canal, ducks, and horses.
The cottage feels bigger than it looks in the photos because the bathroom is well separated from the rest of the house — and then you have more space outside on the deck.
Wonderful and beautiful!
Had a lovely, peaceful stay. The cottage was very clean and well-cared for. Owners were very kind and very helpful. Would definitely recommend and hope to stay here again!
Quaint village life, minutes from Amsterdam
We thoroughly enjoyed our eleven night stay at the property in Broek in Waterland, over the new year holiday. George and Lia responded quickly and with clear communication. They were a friendly and helpful host who wonderfully balanced being available and attentive to our needs with being respectful of our privacy and plans. The pictures don't do justice to the clean and comfortable cottage, set alongside a scenic canal. (We loved waking to the sounds of the geese and ducks and the cows across the canal.) The cottage provided all we needed. Broek in Waterland is a quaint village with fine restaurants and a couple places to pick up a few groceries. A short (less than ten minute) and delightful walk through the village brought us to the bus which, in less than 15 minutes further brought us to Amsterdam's Centraal Station. From there we could explore Amsterdam or travel to cities such as Haarlem and Utrecht. George and Lia also provided bikes, which were fun to ride to pick up supplies at the grocery stores in Monnickendam. We took the local bus to the nearby villages of Marken and Volendam for some marvelous sightseeing and souvenir shopping. All just a few minutes away! The cottage was clean and new and very comfortable - we especially enjoyed the heated floors in the bedroom and bathroom! I would gladly stay again!
Beautiful, peaceful, amazing!
My husband and I stayed in Lia and George's cottage for five nights last week. I can't say enough about what a lovely place it is. The cottage is new and very comfortable. It is in a pretty and historic village in the polder lands north of Amsterdam. There are horses in the pasture across a small canal from the cottage, ducks in the canal, and sheep in the distance. Lia and George are very friendly and hospitable. We highly recommend staying with them for a peaceful retreat from the bustle of Amsterdam.
