cozy and tidy cottage

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay here. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. The cottage is a comfortable annex in the front of the house. It has everything you need to prepare meals and generous storage. Amsterdam was accessible by parking at a wharf with affordable fees and taking a free ferry to the central station area. Grocery store is a short drive away. My only concern is that those with mobility issues can not easily access the loft where the bedroom is. I would definitely stay here again.

Cozy cottage outside of Amsterdam

  • 3 of 5

I stayed here for five nights with my family this past July 2017 and overall we enjoyed our stay; however, prior to our arrival we did not realize quite how far we would be staying outside Amsterdam. The hosts were generous enough to allow us to use their bikes to which we rode 5 miles round trip each day to and from the bus stop and then had to take a 15 mintue bus ride each day we wanted to go site seeing in the city (paying 10 euros per person for a day bus pass). We went into the city four of the five days so this added additional cost to our trip that was unanticipated. My recommendation to those who plan to stay here in the future and want to go into the city of Amsterdam frequently would be to rent a car. The home is extremely quaint residing in a small village along the country side. Inside was clean; however, each on of my family members woke up each morning with countless bug bites which we assume were from the many spiders we found inside the house. I would also like to point out that the part of the house we stayed in was simply a section of the owners home. I was under the impression that it was an entirely separate home. Ultimately our stay was pleasant just wish we would have been given the foresight to plan accordingly for transportation.

Kleine Auszeit im Bullerbü von Astrid Lindgren

  • 5 of 5

Das kleine Paradies von Caroline & Jos erinnerte uns sehr an das Bullerbü von Astrd Lindgren. Wir haben jeden Abend bei einem Glas Wein und bei Kerzenschein im Gärtchen gesessen, den Tag Revue passieren lassen, die Wildenten beim Flugtrainig beobachtet und auf den Sonnenuntergang gewartet. Die Wohnung war sehr gut mit allem, was man braucht, mit viel Liebe zum Detail und sehr geschmackvoll ausgestattet. Wir werden diese Adresse wärmstens weiterempfehlen und sicher einmal wiederkommen.

Wunderbarer Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten wunderschöne 10 Tage im hübschen Domizil von Caroliné und Jos. Uns ist nicht langweilig geworden, die schöne Umgebung lud zu Radtouren und das Markermeer zum Baden und Erholen ein. Auch unserer Tochter hat es sehr gefallen. Die Wohnung ist sehr gepflegt und gemütlich, der Garten ist ein Traum. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und wir haben uns sehr gut erholt. Es hat uns an Nichts gefehlt! Danke für die Gastfreundschaft!

Das Beste aus 2 Welten

  • 5 of 5

Ankommem und sich zuhause fühlen - Ein ruhiges, modernes, komfortables, sehr gut ausgestattetes und höchst gemütliches Refugium in einem entzückenden Haus in naturnaher Idylle mit uneingeschränktem Blick über Wiesen bis zum Deich, Amsterdam ist trotzdem nur einen Katzensprung entfernt. Fahrradtouren nach Monickendam, Volendam und Edam auf Fahrrädern der sehr liebenswerten Gastgeber Carolin und Jos durch eine interessante, von Kanälen durchzogene Landschaft. Am Wochenende in unmittelbarer Nachbarschaft Wein probieren in urigem Weinlokal. Kultur und Natur erleben, was will man mehr! Wir kommen bestimmt wieder! Danke Carolin und Jos für die schönen Tage!
