Wow what a place I can honestly say this was like 5 star accommodation and then some lester and family were the perfect hosts whenever am back in amsterdam this is the only place for me
Lester you are a true gentleman hope too see you soon
Kindest regards john
An utterly stunning place, near windmills and foot-bridges and a charming little town. Seven minutes from the train in to Amsterdam, and steps away from a cocoa factory that keeps the entire neighborhood smelling like a Hallmark movie 24/7.
A massive kitchen allowed us to cook a New Year's Day brunch for friends and family. There are TWO hot tubs--one giant one in the master bath, and another ON THE WATER, to allow soaking and taking in the views.
The hosts could not have been lovelier--they checked in regularly, offered to let us use their washer to do some laundry, and even offered to drive us to the grocery store (it's less than five minutes away by car, but a slightly tricky walk). We had a simply AMAZING stay and hope to do it again.
Minor caveats/things you should know: the house is a shared space. Our host Joe was living downstairs while we were there, and there were some renovations going on, so occasionally we heard hammering noises. (Not too disruptive.) And the queen bed is fairly worn-in memory foam: my wife liked it, but I found myself sinking in to the middle of it like a crevasse. Still worth the trade off for the incredible apartment and surroundings.
I have to say we really lucked out here. I booked this place not realizing how close we were to the windmills in Zaanse Schans. It was a short, beautiful walk. Getting to the house from the airport is very easy. We rented a car and there was always a spot available for us. We took the train into the city everyday, it was a short walk or shorter drive to the train. There is a grocery store just a few blocks away. There are restaurants and little shops right by the house. The owners are great! They helped us out the whole time we were there. The house itself is fantastic. I generally don't sleep well when I am not at home but the beds were so comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with what you need. We stayed with our 4 year old and 2 year old. There was a pack-and-play and a highchair tucked into the closet which came in very handy. I have no complaints and highly recommend this place. The place was large enough that we could have had two more adults and not felt cramped.
Fantastic location, lovely accommodation, great host! Thanks Lester all was as expected and much more!
A great stay. The owner was very helpful. The location is fantastic, great places to visit near by. Would definitely come again.
We had a great family getaway. Spacious place to stay, beautiful view from the deck.
Kids loved the bunked beds.
Owners were friendly and very responsive.
We would definitely stay there again!
Me and a group of friends stayed here a few years back, and tonight I'm booking it again! There were actually 8 of us that stayed here, and even though it was over the 6 guests listed the owner still allowed it and even then it didn't feel too crowded. Everyone loved the place. Very cozy with a cool and spacious interior, leading outside to a balcony and dock with many places to sit, including a jacuzzi. There were rental bikes that came with that came in handy, and getting to the centre was easy with a 5 minute walk to the station and only a couple stops. You really do get a bang for your buck with this one.
Can't wait to experience it again!
