“The Secret Garden- your own private piece of paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

The hardest thing about Flores & Puck is leaving it..! From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and at ease. The cottage itself is beautiful, with every luxury and comfort you could possibly desire. The bed was so comfortable and so soft and the only thing pulling yourself out of it in the morning is the thought of missing a day out in the city center and Astrid's delicious breakfast waiting for you. Being tucked away at the bottom of the garden gives you your own privacy. Surrounded by pear trees gives it a little touch of magic and often you forget that you're at the bottom of somebodies garden and that you're a stones throw away from the bustling city of Amsterdam. As for our wonderful host herself, she is humble, friendly and compassionate. It would appear she dotes on all her guest as if they were her own friends and family, and this is further reflected in all of the comments in the guestbook that go back for years and years. We highly recommend it and have done to all who will hear about it. We couldn't have asked for a more enchanting trip and we patiently await the day that we are able to return to our never-never land in the Netherlands!

We spent four wonderful nights here. Agree with everything wriiten by previous reviewers. Astrid looked after us so well and my gluten free breakfasts (and lunches) were delicious. The cottage is immaculate, private and quiet - we were only woken once and that was a pear falling from the tree onto the roof! it really is a delightful little gem of a place and we cannot recommed it highly enough. a huge thank you to Astrid for making our stay so special.

We stayed at Secret Garden for three days and were so happy about this little qute house. Everything You Need is there, even umbrellas! We enjoyed our nespresso coffee every morning which is also included! The house is equipped with everything you need and its totally worth it and much more better than a hotel! Astrid, we will come back!

Intimidated by all of Europe for the first time and alone, Astrid and her cottage made me feel a comfort I had not yet felt. The breakfast provided offered enough for some awesome sandwiches for lunch, perfect for my bicycle tours of Amsterdam. A bicycle with a great seat was provided, and MUCH appreciated!

Room Tip: Close to the action of your choice is great but with a bicycle, EVERYTHING is close!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Astrid is the most wonderful host, down to earth and invaluable in the practical advice she provided in assisting with making the most of our time in Amsterdam. We loved the peaceful atmosphere the cottage provided (despite being in a populated area), also the really comfy bed which we were able to store away for extra space during the day. Astrid ensured we wanted for nothing with maps, coffee,biscuits, toiletries, crisp linen, plenty of towels and emergency supplies at our fingertips. We loved borrowing the bikes and had a cool time cycling through the local park. Great value, we have cool memories of our time in Amsterdam staying at Flores & Puck.

This is a fantastic place to stay in Amsterdam. We were initially concerned about not being close enough to the city centre, but we soon realised that Amsterdam is such a small city and it is a short tram or cycle ride to the centre. Astrid was an amazing host with a faultless cottage and she even supplied bikes for us to nip around upon. You can come and go as you please without interference, yet Astrid is there to give you helpful advice if the need arises. We have been travelling Europe for four months and this was truly one of the best places that we stayed. Well worth a visit!
