In our garden, 20 kilometers from Amsterdam, we have a small gardenhouse. We call it "'t Forthuisje" , because our house is part off the former defence circle of Amsterdam , build around 1890 to prefend Amsterdam from (foreign) intruders. This circle (Stelling van Amsterdam) is on the UNESCO list. This is a unique place because our house is situated in the polder "de Beemster", which is the only polder in the world that is also listed on the UNESCO world heritage list. So staying at our house gives one the opportunity to sleep in/on a double UNESCO site.

Optional breakfast €8-,p.p.

Our house has a small living area with a woodstove, small table,tv/radio, a small kitchen (fridge, magnetron,elec. hot plate etc), a bathroom with shower and a small loft with 2 beds. In the living the two chairs are easy to transform into nice beds. We rent the cottage as self-catering.
For a small fee, you can use the washing machine. It's a great place for walking, biking and visting historic cities like Amsterdam, Edam, Volendam, Zaandam (Zaanse Schans), Alkmaar, Hoorn en Haarlem. Also, the North Sea is nearby. Everything can easily reached by public transport.
From the cottage it's a 15 min. walk to the busstop, for instance to go to Amsterdam (25 min. to city centre ). There is a trainstation about 10 min. away by car. This train goes directly to Schiphol Airport ( 25 min.). For people coming from abroad , entering the Netherlands by plane, we can make arrangements to pick you up from the trainstation in Purmerend.
We have 4 bikes available, € 7,50 each, for one day.
NEW; 2 km from our home, there is the Fort Resort Beemster (www.fortresortbeemster.nl), a top wellnescentre!

We had such a wonderful time at this great place that we didn't even make it to Amsterdam. The house was just too cozy! There was everything we needed and we felt very welcome. Great place, great people. We would love to come back at some time!

Hallo, liebe Interessierten!! Ich kann nur positiv berichten über die Unterkunft und die Vermieter. Die Unterkunft war sehr sauber und es standen Kaffeemaschine, Mikrowelle, Geschirr und ein Toaster zur Verfügung. Handtücher gab es ebenfalls genügend. Die Unterkunft ist ein ausgebautes Gartenhaus in einem wunderschönen Garten. Die Vermieter sind total nett. Sie haben uns tolle Tipps für Ausflüge gegeben und waren bei Fragen sehr hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt in dieser idyllischen Gegend. Man ist von dort aus mit dem Bus in ca. 30 min in Amsterdam und in ca. 40 min mit dem Auto an der Nordsee. Alles in allem ein super Urlaub - wir kommen gerne wieder. bedank

Ein schlicht eingerichtetes kleines Häuschen mit netten und zuvorkommenden Vermietern. Die Terrasse ist idyllisch. Amsterdam, Nordsee und Ijsselmeer sind auch mit dem Fahrrad gut zu erreichen, so dass der Standort die Voraussetzung für einen abwechslungsreichen Urlaub bietet.

It was a wonderful little cottage with the fireplace where you could sit in the evenings. During the daytime you could sit in the most beautiful garden an listen to the birds singing around. It was just 20 minutes bustrip to Amsterdam and you might easily ride a bike to Edam and Vollendam and see the pittoresque countryside around with all animals and nice houses. The spring there was marvellous. Bart and his wife were very friendly and helpfull. We will certainly come
back! Hannu, Arja and Tom

Nice cozy house with a beautiful garden. We loved the place. upon arrival Bart had fired up the woodstove. The area is amazing, the beautiful middenbeemster is close where you can visit farms and buy local products such as cheese, apples and other fruits. There are some nice forts around this area one next to this farm. The beemster spa is a recommendation.

Thanks for your tips and warm welcome, good luck!

Nice host, idyllic, accommodation is very simple, very small sink with cold water, super small bedroom can only be reached by a steep ladder. Dangerous! Price from 125, - per day is likely overpriced, more than 50, - Euro cost.

A wonderful idyllic place, very welcoming hosts and a homely furnished apartment available with everything you need! The North Sea, or the charming town Volendam can be reached for a day trip very well. In Amsterdam-Central one is by bus or car in 20-25 minutes.

It 'was very nice to be guests of Mr. Bart. The house, surrounded by beautiful garden, is very nice and well equipped. The location of the apartment lends itself to numerous hiking nearby. We spent a lovely week.
