Romantic, warm, detached 'backhouse', with livingroom/bedroom, small kitchen, and bathroom on the ground floor, and a romantic bedroom up in the attic. Ideal for couples, families or the spoilt business traveller.
The Backhouse is comfortably and tastefully equiped, with floor heating and pleasant led-lighting. In front of the cottage there is enough space to sit outside. Up on the dike, you can enjoy the view on the harbour from the bench in front of the main house. In summer you can swim in the lake, in winter you may be able to skate on it!

There are four options to get to the cottage from Amsterdam (and back):
1. By car, about 10 minutes to Amsterdam Centre.
2. Busride from Amsterdam Central Station to Durgerdam, approx. 30 minutes.
2. Electric Tramride from Central Station to Park & Ride Zeeburg (7 minutes) plus a nice half our walk to the cottage, over the bridge on the river IJ, and the old sea dike (you wil then also as good pass by the excellent "Farm" Supermarket Landmarkt in Schellingwoude.
3. You could rent bikes, from the cottage to dead centre Amsterdam takes about half an hour.
During the weekend, the busride (1) does not go all the way. When we are arround, we can always pick you up at the P&R.
Should you decide to rent a car - which is nice for exploring the green Waterland and villages and towns arround Amsterdam, you can park very cheap at the tramstop at P&R Zeeburg for going into town: 1 euro when you set out later than 10 AM, and pay the parking fee by using your tramticket.
There's a a free parking space available near the cottage.
