The property was better than described. Great welcome from Eric and Marjan. Generous welcome pack including bottle of wine. Full set of towels provided. Secure cycle storage space. Easy cycling distance to lots of places. We would happily stay here again if we needed to be in this area.

Second Time Around

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we stayed in the rental, the first time being in June 2012. The owners greeted us like long-lost friends when we arrived. All the positive reviews on this site are well-deserved. One basically rents a whole house with two bedrooms and an attic with an extra bed. When traveling it is nice to stay in a real house allowing you to prepare your own meals and eat in the garden when weather permits. The owners live next door and speak excellent English. Although Purmerend might seem a ways from Amsterdam, it is not, and even though we had a car, we preferred using the bus, avoiding having to drive into the city. The bus stop is right by the house, the bus runs every half hour and gets you to Amsterdam's Central Station within half an hour. Purmerend is a quiet town and a great springboard for treks by car or bicycle to stunning countryside and 17th century villages, places one might never see were one to stay in Amsterdam itself. There is a reason why so many painters came from this area. The owners have lots of good suggestions for day trips and will go out of their way to make it happen. Supermarkets, pharmacies and other stores are an easy walk from the house and the town itself has decent and fun restaurants. When next we visit Amsterdam we will definitely contact the owners of the property again.

An ideal base

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 2 weeks in Purmerend and would highly recommend this house. First of all, Eric and Marjan are very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Booking was very easy and fuss-free. The accommodation was very clean, tidy as expected and the house is well equipped . The owners speak English and French fluently (as the rest of Holland it seems) so communication is easy ! They were always here to help. A little welcome pack was even waiting for us ! Cycling everywhere was one of the highlights for us. It is very safe (we had 3 children but the cycling lanes are out of this world). There is a lot to do and visit around. Amsterdam is easy to access so are the surrounding villages. Eric and Marjan gave us good tips and information about visits, directions and facilities. There is also a fantastic swimming pool in Purmerend.

We would recommend this accommodation to families , friends or anybody who would like to experience a bit of Dutch life and scenery and visit the capital city.

Only suggestion : before travelling to Holland, make sure you check the road code and regulations. Bikes have priority most of the time everywhere and it is expected of cars to stop !

Halpern's review

  • 5 of 5

We (2+2)stayed at the house for 8 days and we strongly recommand it.The owners are very nice and kind couple. They live the next door and that makes you fill good because you can reach them any time. Not that we had to. The house has everything in it , warming and hot water for shower also. It is very clean and neat, has these large windows in dutch style . We couldn't enjoy the nice back yard because of the weather but even so we did went out and played in the snow. We enjoyed the dutch style of living there and when you choose winter vacation the house has significance importance. The house is located in a nice quiet street close to a shopping center.

Fantastic house in a pretty town!

  • 5 of 5

The house is quite big and comfortable, it also was very clean and comfortable, set in a nice garden with every kind of beautiful flowers. The owners always were kind and helpful: they brought us form the house to the station by their own car and they always were friendly and smiling. The house is set in a quiet part of Purmerend, characterized by many green area.

My friends and I could reach the centre of Amsterdam easily, just in 30 minutes by bus and the nearest supermarket was a few minutes by walk from the house

We hope to return soon!

Excellent séjour!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans la charmante maison de Purmerend. Eric et Marjan Hommes sont très chaleureux, leur accueil et leur bienveillance sont exceptionnels. La maison est parfaite pour une famille, très bien entretenue et idéalement située dans un quartier typique hollandais très calme. La maison est un havre de paix après une longue journée à Amsterdam. Nous remercions Eric et Marjan pour leur gentillesse, et recommandons vivement cette location.
