When going on vacation I very often rent a house, I love the space & privacy. When my work 'forced' me to be away from home most of the year I thought I might as well do other people a favour and rent out my house to people who want to visit Amsterdam.
Het jaar van aankoop is 2010
Large family home with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, great sunny garden and parking.
As a family of 5, with 3 adult children, we found this property to be the perfect fit for us. Yes the stairs are very steep as is typical in this locale, but there was room enough for everyone. The house is located on a beautiful residential street and the nights were wonderfully quiet. The train and bus station was a 5 - 10 minute walk and 2 stops by train from Amsterdam Central. Everything we needed was a short walk away. A wonderful location in all.
Sadly it rained for most of the week we were there so we didn't use the outdoor equipment, but we did use the many umbrellas supplied.
We would stay here again if the opportunity came along.
We had a great stay here, and enjoyed being a little bit away from the crowds of Amsterdam. The rental is in a quiet neighborhood only a 10 minute walk to the train station. From there you can be in the city in less than 15 minutes. There is only one stop between Zaandam and Amsterdam. Very easy and frequent.
It was great to be able to retreat to home base and walk 5 min to Zaandam center area for dinner. Or, stay at home and cook a family dinner-there is a great supermarket right on the corner.
The house is comfortable, and complete with steep stairs and squeaky floors like most every building we saw in Holland. The owners and their assistant Farah were speedy to help with any questions. Solid rental and great price compared to similar properties in AMS central. Also very easy train connection to Schipol.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt dort. Schön war es an den warmen Abenden im kleinen Garten zu sitzen. Die Ausstattung des Hauses war sehr gut. Allein die Belüftungsmöglichkeiten von zwei Schlafräumen war unzureichend. Aus Sicherheitsgründen waren die Fenster verriegelt und es konnten lediglich die kleinen oberen Fenster gekippt werden. Die geringe Entfernung zum Bahnhof war wiederum ein Plus.
We've just come back from a week in Zaandam and Amsterdam, and Pelle's place was a great place to stay.
Six of us stayed (a family of 5 and a friend) and there was plenty of space in a stylishly decorated house that really fit our image of what it would be like in The Netherlands. The local area and the house are exactly as described by Pelle and the welcome from Pelle's friend Farah was warm and she was very informative for first-time visitors to The Netherlands.
Although we didn't get to meet Pelle himself, we did talk to him several times via the HomeAway messaging system, and he was friendly, efficient and helpful - a pleasure to deal with.
The house was well equipped for cooking so we cooked at home a few times.
The nearest supermarket was only a 5 minute walk and the town centre, with some Italian, Spanish Tapas, Greek restaurants, a delicious ice cream shop and a Chinese take away was a 10 minute walk.
Zaandam and the surrounding area north of Amsterdam has a lot of history, so do your homework before you go, and plan to look around. Zaanse Schans was only 10 minutes drive away and we spent a whole day there. Staying at Pelle's house and just heading south into Amsterdam every day would be a real shame. The train fare for an adult costs around 6.50 Euros return to the Central Amsterdam station which we think was a reasonable price to pay to come back to a nice, spacious, quiet house at the end of a busy day, rather than staying in Central Amsterdam.
If we go back to The Netherlands for another holiday (which is quite likely, given how interesting it is and how friendly Dutch people are!) we will definitely be in touch with Pelle again.
I bought a car using the European Delivery Program and wanted a location where I didn't have to worry about public parking. This is an amazing property that I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to use Zandaam as a base operations to explore Amsterdam and the Netherlands. The train station is about a 10 minute walk from the house and its only a few stops away from Central Station.
When arriving by car you can enter my address in your navigation system.
When arriving by plane you can take a direct train from Schiphol to Zaandam 2x per hour at :10 and :40.
Directions from the station to my house can be found using this link : http://goo.gl/maps/yV7rl
Also a taxi transfer can be arranged with Taxi Zaanland. For a regular taxi car the cost for pick up and return costs 80 euro total. A minibus taxi for pick up and return costs 120 euro total. Please remember that 4 people fit easily into a normal taxi but not too much luggage will fit in the boot of the car.
Let me know if you would like to use the taxi transfer service so I can make reservations for you.
For going to Amsterdam there are 7 trains per hour that take you to Amsterdam Central station in only 12 minutes (the second stop on the train).
On arrival you will find a folder listing the shops and restaurants that are close to the house, many of the interesting sites and places to see and how everything works in and around the house.
