What a wonderful family retreat
What a wonderful family retreat
Our family stayed in this wonderful house in Edam for two weeks over the summer. We loved everything about our stay, from the beautiful views out of all the windows to the cows who walked by every late afternoon to the sound of the seagulls overhead. The location is great: right by the lake for sailing, swimming and long walks; close to the historic center of Edam with its picturesque canals, gabled houses, flowering gardens and churches; twenty minutes from the cosmopolitan excitement of Amsterdam; and in the middle of one of the most beautiful landscapes in Holland, all green fields, farms, polders, unchanged for centuries. The house is comfortable and spacious, with a great yard, parking in front and plenty of privacy. We loved eating out on the terrace and our kids played badminton, went running along the dike and rode the bikes that were conveniently provided. The owners were helpful and easy to communicate with, and we had an all over great experience. Definitely recommended!

Spring Break Trip
Spring Break Trip
We are a family of four and travelled from Calgary AB Canada for the first time overseas with our children. Our kids have some serious health issues and needed the convenience of a home away from home! Our children are 11 and 8 years old; they are both boys and needed space and room to move! This property certainly exceeded our expectations! The owners were very helpful during the planning of this trip and were very flexible with some of the changes we asked for after our initial booking. They were also available via email during our stay if any questions came up. Quick and courteous responses! The home is spacious and clean, walking distance to shopping, historical sites, cafes, restaurants and the harbour; wonderful wildlife to observe! The bus stop is also within a 20 minute walk and conveniently takes you to Amsterdam Central Station. Volendam is a beautiful bike ride and the owners provided many bikes for our use. It's an outstanding location for those looking for quaint coastal living with easy access to Amsterdam. Ideal for families. We look forward to booking another stay and thank the owners for all their help and now their friendship! We wouldn't hesitate to refer our friends and family!
