Property description

Amersfoort is a quaint and charming city located in the heart of the Netherlands (e.g. 30 minutes from Amsterdam city center by public transport, 45 minutes from Schiphol Airport by public transport; less then 1,5 hours travel to face Rembrandt's Nightwatch in the Rijksmuseum. Our vacation home 'Johan' is situated in the historical city center of Amersfoort. The old building originates from approximately 1750. The name 'Johan' is derived from Johan van Oldenbarneveld. He was an influential statesman who was born near our B&B in September 1547.

Our recently renovated vacation home features all of today's modern conveniences and design. Maintaining and blending its original 1750 architectural details with contemporary Dutch design created a comfortable, homey setting to relax in style. It features two bedrooms, a luxurious bathroom, and an open-design living and dining space with comfortable furnishings and seating for six. It's kitchen is fully equipped for all of your needs. Our home accommodates sleeping for six. Too boost your experience choose amongst our many upgrades for a nominal fee: crib rental, child's bed rental, breakfast served, room tidying, afternoon tea and biscuits, fresh squeezed juices with cut fruit, etc.).

Each destination worth visiting (within the Netherlands) is max 1.5 hours' drive away. The house is also very convenient for overseas professionals working in or near Amersfoort for a longer period of time up to three months.

We are fully trained in English and can accommodate all of your language needs. We also speak German and French.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: This is me, Ingrid. Together with my husband, Henk, we purchased the 'Johan House' in 2008 when our backyard neighbor moved out making it available. This opportunity happens only once in a lifetime. We meticulously renovated it to meet all of our dreams and are thrilled to open it for business. Next to running the vacation home, we also have a catering business, so if you would like to have a meal prepared, ask away!

Why the Owner Chose Amersfoort:
Amersfoort is a quaint and charming city located in the heart of the Netherlands. Amersfoort is a city with a small town coziness and with big city benefits. All facilities like shops, restaurants (you will find a.o. Asian, French, Spanish, Italian, and even TV-award winning Dutch kitchen), museums, cinema and theater are within walking distance. The city of Amersfoort organizes many free of charge open air festivals suitable for kids and/or grown ups.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Some of the key features of the 'Johan house' is its unique central location in a very old and charming city center, yet very quiet and safe at night. Around Amersfoort are many natural parks and reserves which can be visited by boat, bicycle or car. We rent out bicycles and can help you in making a nice 'green' itinerary. Public transportation is extremely well organised. All big cities in the Netherlands have direct connections with Amersfoort Central Station.
