First Holland Trip and Definitely Will Go Back & Stay Here Again
Ok where do I start. I'm travelling to Holland with family of 8 and we're all first timers. We arrived early before check in time and Pelle is ok for us to drop our luggages then stroll around the house. We were greeted by Farah who had been very helpful and super informative about the house and surrounding.
Back to stroll around, the house is very close to many restaurants at zaandam centrum including the supermarket Albert Heijn. Well, supermarket is everything to us, we can buy vegies and meat then cook it at the house. Their kitchen is amazing, their cooking utensil is more than what we need.
The house is located at nice housing area, there's a playpark in walking distance as well as ducks in the river, so if you bring kids along with you, you guys will have many fun activities together. The interior itself feels like home, clean and comfortable. We stayed for 4 days and feels too soon. I like the room on the leftside at the 3rd floor, it's just sooooo Europe.
We fully commute with public transportation and their access to public transportation such as Zaandam train station and bus is very close. If you ride the train, it only took 15 minutes to Amsterdam or around 20-25 minutes to Schipol Airport.
I have nothing to complain but just a note that the stairs are steep. Should be careful.
Incredibly convenient and easy access!
Thanks to Belle and to his hostess Farrah - the house was perfect for our needs! A quick walk to the train station and we were in Amsterdam at the Centraal Station within 11 minutes. No need for a car once in town. A quaint gateway to all the Dutch character you want without the big city right at your door step. I highly recommend this house!
Great location. The house was very nice and close to all necessities.
We enjoyed our time in Zaandam and the house was very nice. We did have issues with the washing machine not working. As we were there for 10 days this was most inconvenient. Fortunately, the owner organised to have another one installed, but only after persistence by us.
Great accommodations, perfect location! Thank you!
It is a very cosy house in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood
The house is quirky, but in a good way. It felt like home by the end of the holiday. Nice kitchen and bathrooms. Stairs are narrow and steep. Really can’t recommend to old people. The railing in on the side of the wall and the other side is open, adding to the quirkiness:) and some danger... it’s a 15 min walk to the bus/railway station. If you can bike, nothing like it...
Comfotable property with a great location
We stayed at Pelle's home for three days before taking a river cruise. The home is clean, the beds are comfortable and the home is spacious. Pelle was out of town but we were met by Farah. She was great! Farah was very helpful in getting us oriented to the house and to Zaandam. She was very thorough and was prompt in responding to texts when we had questions during our stay.
The only drawback was the washer did not work. I will also warn the steps are steep and use care when using them. Pantry items may vary; there was a good variety of spices, coffee and tea for our use; we did not cook but there were abundant dishes, glassware, pots, pans, etc for use.
Zandaam is a great little town and it has plenty to offer. It was a great place to relax. If we return to the area, Pelle's home will be a place to stay!
Many thanks for the review. The washer is back in working order. Very sorry about the inconvenience.
