About our home

Enjoy the city of Amsterdam while staying in a quiet, rural environment

Our house is situated in the green suburb of Amsterdam Zuidoost, in easy reach by public transport (train, metro and bus). From Schiphol only 45 minutes by train and metro. Centre of town by metro only takes 30 minutes. Also very accessible by car, as our neighbourhood is accessible from three of the main highways. Free parking. So you can enjoy the city of Amsterdam during the day but relax in a green, quiet environment during the evenings, maybe with a barbecue or with a wood fire.

At ground level you'll find our livingroom with conservatory. During summertime a sunscreen is available. On cold days you'll enjoy the ligth and warmth of the sun in the conservatory. You can also light a fire in the fireplace. In the kitchen there are two ovens, a fridge and a dishwasher.

On the first floor we have 3 bedrooms: 1 for the parents, 2 for the children (1 bunkbed) and simple bathroom with toilet, wash-basin and shower.

There is a sofa bed on the second floor, for 2 persons. Washingmachine and dryer are also on this floor.

The entire house is equipped with convenient floorheating. Also available: bicycles (2 adults', 3 childrens'), barbecue, large picnic table. In the shed we have an additional fridge (with freezer).

Where is it?


Our house is situated at the green outskirts of Amsterdam, near the picturesque little river Gein and the small city of Weesp and the villages of Abcoude and Baambrugge. All are worth a visit, a walk or a bicycletrip. In the park behind our home you might encounter the freerange cows that graze there during summertime. If you love walking, you can start your walks right behind our garden, towards the park and into the country side. Walk or bike along the river Gein, enjoy the country side and take a drink on one of the terraces in Abcoude or Weesp. Furthermore, there are plenty of nice restaurants in Weesp. Of course, Amsterdam is only 30 minutes away, by metro. Admire Rembrandt and Van Gogh in the museums, enjoy the terraces, shops, and all the famous places of our capital.

There is a small beach just in front of our neighbourhood, at walking distance. The water is clean and it's also safe for (small) children. At a rainy day you might consider to visit the indoor-children's playground of 'Ballorig', situated next to the parking at the beach. Farm-restaurant 'Langerlust' is located at walking distance, in the direction of Weesp. Small children can play outside safely, because of the walking area around our house. There are several playinggrounds in the neighbourhood with slides, merry-go-rounds or climbing racks. Children can also bike safely and independantly on the special bicycleroads (free of cars) in the neighbourhood.

If you like to visit one of the Northsea beaches you can easily drive to Zandvoort, Bloemendaal, Heemskerk or Schoorl, all within an hour's drive away.
