  • Truly a great choice

    "Great location. Near everything by walk. The ducks, the patio... All was perfect. Carolien was great help. Could not have asked for a better place to rent. Perfect neighbourhood and safe at night. Don't hesitate to rent it. It was our 8th rental (VRBO or HomeAway) and this one was by far the best one in terms of cleanliness and setup (wine at arrival, fresh flowers/tulips, and just enough for our first breakfast). Christian & France."

  • Great veiws

    "Lovely place to stay the boat has everything you need and has amazing veiws of the boats going into the dock. The hosts are very freindly and helpful. Great farmers indoor market a few minutes away, good selection of food, the burgers are lovely, has a great selection of beers from Holland and Belgium, also has a resturant serving till 10pm. The bike ride to the ferry is a joy, very few cars no buses just other cyclists and two very good pubs on the way. Will be back next year loads more to explore."

  • A comfortable and cosy stay.

    "When contacting Charlotte the owner she was very quick to respond, and extremely helpful. The gardenhouse is very comfortable, and we enjoyed the country-feel of the space in the city. The walk into the main part of town is very easy - and very pretty - and you get to pass over many lovely bridges, discover cafes and restaurants and the walk to the popular museums is very easy too. Highly recommended for its location in the city. The travel from the airport is very easy, and tram number 4 is the nearest one to the gardenhouse. The bed on the mezzanine level is very comfortable, and the space (for us two) was perfect. The kitchen was well-equipped for breakfast and light meals, with a fridge (easily stocked from the supermarket round the corner) and pots, pans, toaster, kettle, cups, plates and bowls are all provided - and towels for the shower room and sink too. There is a good size dining table, and outdoor table and chairs too (in the photos) and we felt very safe and welcomed into the house. There are guidebooks that have been left, and these great walking map cards in a little box that someone previously has left - these were very handy as little maps to walk around with. We spent most of our time out of the house, but it was a lovely place to come back to at the end of the day, and it isn't too far to stop back in during the day if you needed to, as we did once to drop some things off. I would highly recommend this house for a couple (or perhaps three as there is another smaller mezzanine with a single bed), however the stairs up to the mezzanine levels are a bit steep, but perfectly manageable. There is enough space for a comfortable stay (we were there four nights) and Charlotte was very accommodating. For the two of us she lent her museum passes which we were able to use to save on entrance fees, which was so very kind. I would certainly stay in the gardenhouse again (hopefully soon!) when we next take a trip to Amsterdam. Thank you Charlotte!"

  • Nice quiet street

    "The room is fine, three steps up to the entrance and then mainly on street level. approx. 12 feet X 18 feet, nice size. Furnished in very basic furniture, clean though! Bathroom with shower has been recently renovated...only complaint is the bed, a Queen size (can be two twins instead) is pretty hard, not lumpy though. No room for third person that i can see! Spiral staircase down to tiny kitchen is a bit challenging as the treads are narrow, only 5 stairs though. Nice to have a stovetop and fridge. Love the quiet street, love the big window that opens to a little back garden, though you can,t walk out there as you would have to crawl through the window. Landlord lives upstairs but seems nice and quiet. There are nearby hotels at the same rate but I like having a kitchen and even cooking a bit with local ingredients from the very nearby gourmet shops...tonight it is mozzarella de buffalo and fresh tomatoes and a pasta dish with asparagus and wild smoked salmon in a butter sauce , yum! Cable tv and wifi included!"
