We had no idea how fantastic this accommodation was going to be. We fully expected to share the house with other travelers but we had it all to ourselves. We sat on the patio having breakfast or dinner looking at windmills and watching the boats go by. Everything was clean and the kitchen well stocked with spices, oil, coffee etc. We loved our stay there. We didn’t use the train but apparently the station was just around the corner. Albert Heijn grocery store was great and not far away. We drove into Amsterdam to do the touristy things. Thank you for a wonderful stay and great memories.
We stayed as a family of 6 in the Easter holidays and had a brilliant time. The flat feels very spacious and has great views. We loved watching all the cyclists traveling over the bridge. Used the delicious local bakery and handy cafe. Would definitely go again!
We stayed in February in a family group of 3 generations (19 to 72) and all of us had a fantastic time. The apartment was perfect right next to a flour mill. Joe and Lester were brilliant and kindly let us check in early and stay on late as there were no guests immediately after us. The beds were spotless and the double had the most luxurious memory foam mattress. Outdoor hut tub and jacuzzi inside were much appreciated after days visiting the city. We bought 3 day passes for travel which we could use to get in and out of Amsterdam valid for all transport. The train is about 5/10 mins walk from the apartment and is frequent and easy to use. Everyone incredibly friendly and helpful. Chocolab, cheese and gin tasting and pancakes in the zaannschan museum across the bridge. Strong smell of chocolate from the factory OK if you're a fan. Definitely will return many thanks to great hosts.
Loft apartment is really lovely - home from home! Really well equipped, and very spacious.
It's a 5 min walk from the local train station, and worth getting the train rather than taxi to airport, as it cost us €70! The little town is super quiet, with a fantastic bakery 2 min walk away and a little restaurant over the road (we didn't eat there, but it looked nice). Train into Amsterdam Centraal is around 15 mins - you need COINS to pay though, so be prepared!
We would all definitely stay here again.
We spent four nights in Zaanhof, and we cannot wait to go back. The building itself has a lot of character. It's beautifully furnished and the location is stunning.
Excellent recreation, kitchen & bathroom facilities. There's a Spar shop within 2 minutes walking distance and a supermarket within a short bicycle trip.
Lester and Joe, thank you both for your kindness. You are first class hosts.
We stayed here for my sons 21st birthday and Xmas. What a treat! Magical location, stunning views and such hospitable service from the family. The restaurant across the road was perfect for the birthday meal and the apartment was ideal for our family Xmas dinner. 15 minute train ride into Amsterdam but a magical fairytale place with the windmills just over the bridge. We will definitely visit again. 10/10.
Where to begin? Lester was the perfect host, as was his whole family. The loft itself is perfection. Fabulous kitchen, comfortable beds, great, great location and a view to die for. Every morning we had outstanding coffee made in our kitchen (wanted to take the coffeemaker home!), walked outside and smelled cocoa being roasted as we watched the river traffic. What could be more perfect? Lester took two of us to the local grocery store to get supplies when we arrived and showed us what to buy. There is a bike available for further trips and there are great cafes nearby. The train is a 10 minute walk away. We can't recommend this rental highly enough!
