About our home

We offer a cosy colourful 3 stories townhouse. We have a front and back yard with lots of beautiful plants and flowers and also a real Italian pizza wood oven.
The ground floor has a hallway with toilet, kitchen, sunroom and living room with a big lounge couch and a wide flat screen TV. There are double beds in each bedroom and our home can sleep six adults. The first floor has a bedroom with a 160x200 cm bed, a bedroom with a 180x200 cm bed and a bathroom with toilet and shower. On the second floor we have a large bath-/bedroom with bath and 180x220 cm waterbed.
We own two friendly cats which are very little trouble because they spend most of their time in the garden. They go in and out their own little door so you don't have to bother about cleaning a litter box. Bikes are at your disposal. Our Chrysler Sebring Convertible with automatic transmission is available if we do not use it ourselves.

Where is it?


Our home is situated in Amstelveen a suburb one mile from Amsterdam close to the airport Schiphol. The neighbourhood is very friendly with a mixture of all ages in a green environment. We are a ten minutes walk away from a big mall with shops, bars, restaurants, theatre, movies and museum. The Amsterdam forest is 1 kilometre away. Here you can swim, hike, go canoeing, hire a waterbike or boat, visit a gotas farm or a Dutch pancake house and much more. There are also several lakes and typical Dutch country sides in the neighbourhood. The famous Dutch beach is at 28 kilometres. At 2 kilometres you will find Amsterdam, the capital of Holland with its beautiful canals with canal bikes and boat tours, historical buildings, culture, museums (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh, Anne Frank etc.), shopping, theatres, bars, restaurants, night life etc. etc.
