We truly fell in love with this location, surrounded by water, greenspace and gardens, woods, and charming cottages. Just a short bike or bus ride to the heart of Amsterdam, but so peaceful and relaxing as well. Anrik is a wonderful host, whose cottage reflects his commitment to sustainability and thoughtfulness. We really enjoyed the use of the bikes, which...

The house was amazing and Anrik was super helpful. The house was far enough from the city for much needed peace and quiet yet easily accessible to public transportation for a quick ride into the city. We really appreciated the use of the bikes, they really gave us a chance to see some country side and sights outside of the...

About the neighborhood
Our street is a dead end street, very quiet and silent.
Parking is free of cost. Public transport to the city centre is nearby (1500 m) or 20 min by bike through scenic Schellingwoude and Nieuwendam with a harbour crossing by free ferry). By car only 10 minutes. Many guest are delighted and surprised the centre of town is so easily reachable and close while the location is so free and quiet.
The supermarket (300 m) is specialized in local, fresh, eco-products: sells all you need incl fresh bread and a small restaurant.
Take a stroll, starting at the front door, get a breath of fresh air along the dykes of the IJsselmeer or the neighbouring waterlocks.
Very suitable for outdoor activities, especially biking, walking/running as well as exploring Amsterdam as you like.

How to get there
Airport: Schiphol airport: 14.9 mi
Railway: Central Station Amsterdam: 3.7 mi
Transport from Schiphol is easy. Public transport is reliable and cheaper than a taxi (€52). My preference is: 1-By train to Amsterdam Central Station; 2-take a taxi (€22) or 3-proceed with tram 26 and bus 37; 4-walk 7 minutes.

1-Train to Amsterdam Central Station. Access to the platforms is from the central hall in Schiphol; Buy tickets in the hall.

2-At Central Station you take tram 26 to IJburg (departs from the city side of the station, 'Left hand if you get out of the station'; North side is the harbour). Get out at the stop after the tunnel (10 minutes ride). Buy tickets in the hall/ask at info, or on board of tram (more expensive).

3-Take bus 37 to Molenwijk (busstop is located at 'the other, remote side of the road), Do not take the one to Amst...
