The moment you walk into this place it feels like a home. The house is clean and rooms are comfortable. Beware of the couch, it's super comfortable and you will sink into it unable to move for hours after a long day. It was a nice surprise that the kitchen was well stocked with almost all the cookware and utensils you can think of.

In terms of location its quite fantastic if you want the best of both worlds. Zaandam has a nice quiet town feel to it. Bars, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and a nice high street are all in walking distance. The neighborhood is also so quiet that you will get some great sleep at night. When you are ready to go into the city, the train station is only about a 10 minute walk away and the train takes around 12 minutes to Amsterdam. The trains run frequently, all day and until late. If you are out really late, an UberPop only charged us about 30 euros to get home from Amsterdam.

Finally, and most importantly, Pelle is a great host and will make sure that you have everything you need.

Highly recommended for friends and family. At least we know we will definitely be back.

“Great location, very comfortable”

I stayed here for just over a week in late July with my family, including 2 boys aged 10 and 11. The house is spacious, comfortable and homely, and very well located for the type of holiday we wanted. We had a rental car and were able to park it out on the street free of charge (to us). The house is 5 mins walk to Zaandam railway station, and then only a 12 minute train journey to Amsterdam CS.
Some days we drove to the beach, or to see windmills, or other towns; other days we took the train into Amsterdam.
We were impressed with how well the house is kitted out - we had to buy very few sundries (eg, salt, pepper, sugar, oil, some spices etc.) as the kitchen is well stocked. The supermarkets are only a few minutes walk though, and several decent restaurants are less than 10 minutes away in the old town square.
The house is on a traditional street and gives a great feel for what living in Holland is like.
The only point I would mention is that (like most traditional Dutch houses) the stairs are very steep and would not be suitable for people with infirmaties.

Lovely house. Everything you need. Steep stairs for top floor but worth it for space and ensuit. Perfect location for local shops and bars etc. train service fantastic 10 minute walk to station and 15 mins to dam central. Trains every 30 mins. Would recommend and will go back. House and garden so private and peaceful. Real home from home.

“Perfect get-away from the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam”

We stayed in the house for a long weekend in Feb. The house is located 5 min walk from Vaandam train station (which is only 2 stops & 10 mins from Central Amsterdam and direct from the airport). The house is modern with traditional twists and has 3 large double bedrooms, 2 big beautiful bathrooms and an open plan lounge/kitchen/diner over 3 floors (the stairs are quite steep). We were met by Debbie, who very kindly gave us tips on the area and even walked us into town to show us a few places. Vaandam is great for shopping and eating out, and is a great place to stay and make the short trip in and out of Amsterdam. Linen and Towels were provided and the kitchen had all you could need (including coffee maker, ice machine, tea, sugar etc, which we topped up with what we didn't use). We have stayed in hotels in Amsterdam before, but tried this due to wanting a base we could all come and go from but have the space to socialise together and it was perfect for that. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would def recommend. The communication with Pelle (owner) has been prompt and courteous and I received the breakage deposit back quickly. Hotels are great for ease and location in Amsterdam, but this option allows you to have a base away from the "craziness" of the Dam but be within a short distance away. The trains start at 6am and run every 10 mins until 2-3am. Thanks Pelle, look forward to staying at your place again and thanks Debs for the hospitality you showed us.

The station is called Zaandam and not Vaandam. Just in case you can't find it on the map.
