Overview

Photos and Description of this holiday apartment in Waterland - Amsterdam Farmland B&B

Charming Farmhouse suite with living/sleeping area/bathroom, sleeps 2-4 pers.

A lofty 65m2 peaceful farmhouse suite with a sleeping and living area. The sleeping area has a comfortable double bed, shower and wash basin. The living area has a sofa, TV/DVD set, a sofa bed (for 2 extra people/children), a dining table, chairs and fridge. The room is on the first floor; your private toilet is on the ground floor.

The house is a beautifully reconstructed former farm with a large garden, just 10 minutes from Amsterdam city centre. The house is located in Ransdorp, a typical Dutch village with characteristic wooden houses set around a monumental tower; where circa 1645 Rembrandt made many drawings. The spot is called the 'Garden of Amsterdam'.

Our well located country Bed and Breakfast makes it easy for you to visit the busy city center of Amsterdam or enjoy the tranquility of the countryside.

Continental breakfast is included.

Bikes are also included.

The hosts are happy to inform you about everyday activities in Amsterdam and the environment.

The Activities:

Our well located country Bed and Breakfast makes it easy for you to visit the busy city center of Amsterdam with its many museums, The Anne Frank House, shops, red light district, bars, restaurants and canals.

However, you can also just want to enjoy the tranquility of Waterland: taking our bicycles or boat that will take you through country site roads, lakes, outstretched meadows, polder landscape, and picturesque villages with wooden houses and farms. You can also visit traditional cattle farms and biological cheese farms. Or you can just relax in our garden and enjoy the amazingly panoramic view.

Ransdorp is one of the most authentic places in the vicinity of Amsterdam, yet only a 20 minute bike ride from the centre. The village of Ransdorp is a protected site. The environment, named Waterland, is also largely protected as a wild life sanctuary and farmland. The unique flat landscape is currently the largest reserve for brooding meadow birds in Europe.

The Hosts:

We are sure you will enjoy staying here as much as we enjoy living here. My husband and I have ourselves traveled extensively and have tried to learn through our good experiences as well as from our bad ones. We like to mix intimacy with good service and the freedom to enjoy, what is for us, a wonderful place to be yourself.

We look forward to meeting you in our paradise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Nós (2 adultos e 2 crianças de 13 e 11 anos) amamos ficar no apartamento de Hansje e Roy. Este lugar é perfeito! É bem perto de visitar o centro de Amsterdam e é longe suficiente do barulho da cidade. Nós fomos muito bem tratados por eles (como se estivéssemos em nossa casa) e nós recomendamos este apartamento.

Perfect Place if Driving to Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to the Netherlands & since we had a car we decided to stay outside Amsterdam to avoid parking hassles. The drive to Ransdorp was really cool, it was amazing how rural & peaceful the surroundings got as soon as you were out of the city. We arrived early but Hansje welcomed us in very warmly, it was the youngest son's birthday but she still patiently answered all our questions. Based on her recommendation we had a lovely lunch in Holysloot, then later headed for the tram station... those narrow roads are much trickier to navigate at night. It took us about 30 minutes to get from the house to Centraalstation, not bad at all.

Hansje asked when we wanted breakfast & if we had any special requests, since we're not too picky we went with whatever she brought. The trays of food arrived outside our door exactly on time and were loaded with fresh OJ & fruit, warm rolls, ham, cheese, along with a dish of scrambled eggs the first morning and delicious pancakes the second... it was definitely one of the best breakfasts we've ever had at a B&B.

The first day after finishing breakfast we borrowed the bikes to ride in to quiet & quaint Ransdorp, we hoped to bike further but it started raining heavily. Later we drove to Marken and were surprised how few people were around, we expected it to be busier on a Saturday. This farmhouse was the ideal location for exploring the canals & countryside of northern Netherlands while also being very close to Amsterdam, two nights was not nearly enough time to get to know this lovely area.

One of the things we really look for in a rental place is a great view, when we woke up the second morning we were treated to one of the loveliest sights we've ever seen. The sun was rising over the foggy canals, luckily I was able to get a picture of the spectacular scene before it disappeared. It brings a smile to my face every time I look at it, which is often since an enlarged version now hangs in our home.

The only negative we can bring up is that the private toilet for this apartment is downstairs along with the family's living room. We could hear muffled noise sometimes during the day but never enough to bother us, there's no problem at night since the family sleeps in a separate section. We loved being so totally welcomed in to Hansje's lovely home & family and look forward to staying here again. If you're looking for an authentic slice of Dutch life, this is the perfect place!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Hansje was so accomadating to us as we seemed to change our plans on an hourly basis. They even changed their personal plans as we were late in arriving. Sorry about that. Believe me, this is the place to stay when you want to visit Amsterdam, but also get a quiet night in a wonderful village and experience some local culture. Make sure to visit the Restaurant in the next village. That was quite a treat! Thank you very much. We hope to come back.

Soggiorno nella campagna olandese

  • 5 of 5

Immerso in una tranquilla zona di campagna, l'alloggio è spazioso e molto pulito ( la proprietaria provvede al cambio della biancheria da bagno quotidianamente). Apprezzabile la possibilità di raggiungere la fermata del tram per la stazione centrale di Amsterdam in soli cinque minuti di macchina. Grande disponibilità e cortesia da parte dei padroni di casa dai quali si può avere qualsiasi informazione.

GOOD CHOICE OUTSIDE AMSTERDAM

  • 4 of 5

We loved to stay in the Hansje and Roy apartment. This place is close enough to visit Amsterdam and far sufficient from noise from downtown. We were very well treated by them (as we were in our house) and we reccomend the stay. Points to improve: Hair dryer, new pillows. The rest is perfect !

Charming and convenient farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

Very nicely and quietly located in the Amsterdam countryside, only a short distance to the tram station (with easy parking) to central Amsterdam.

For those who want to enjoy everything Amsterdam has to offer without the troubles of staying downtown.
