  • Great Location, Large Comfortable Apartment

    "We spent a week at this wonderful apartment and had a great time. Although we were booking at the last minute, the communication and booking procedures were all easy and well handled. The apartment may seem a little strange at first, with 3 bathrooms scattered about and the kitchen down a short set of stairs to the lower level, but one gets used to it quickly and loves how spacious it all is. One of the nicest parts is its location right on the canal. We enjoyed sitting in the living room and watching the canal boats pass by. Good wifi, comfortable bed, plenty of space and a great location. I was there for work in a nearby town, but found with the tram only a short walk away it was an easy trip to the Centraal railroad station. My wife enjoyed both the immediate neighbor hood and how close the place is to the major museums. Some really nice restaurants in the area, too. Definitely recommend."

  • Calm and Charm

    "My wife and I greatly enjoyed the peace, calm and charm of this house, its substantial garden and its surroundings for our short stay on the outskirts of Edam in June 2014. The photos and description were quite accurate. As a measure of success we rapidly found ourselves referring to "going home" after excursions rather than "back to the house". Having arrived on a Sunday evening when no shops were open, our host was kind enough to supply coffee and milk for the following morning (though we couldn't find any sugar!). Future guests may find it useful to know that there is a large Deen supermarket at William Pontstraat 82 in Edam (about 6 mins away by car/bike) open from 08:00 to 21:00 Mon-Sat. Edam itself is a lovely small town, easily navigable on foot (4 mins away by car/bike or a 20 min walk). In particular there are some very attractive views across the canal alongside Schepenmakersdijk. If you have a car or are happy to use public transport, it's very easy to get to Amsterdam e.g. for the (inevitable?) visit to the Rijksmuseum. The underground car park beneath Museumplein (adjacent to the Rijksmuseum) had plenty of spaces when we went midweek. Tip: if you have a smartphone or tablet, consider downloading the free RIJK app for a set of top notch interactive guides to the Rijksmuseum; but if not, then the museum can supply (similar?) material on a hired iPod ("multimedia tour"). Also, if you are approaching Edam from the South and you have a wide vehicle (or its wing mirrors do not retract) take care not to allow your SatNav to direct you along Oosterkade turning off Burgemeester Versteeghsingel or Keetzijde, the entry to and exit from the first bridge really ARE narrow. In conclusion, if you want a spacious and tranquil rural base from which to explore Noord-Holland yet one that is only 20 mins away from Amsterdam, look no further. Finally, an extra thank you to our host, Charlotte, for the availability of the bikes (and for arranging good weather so we could use them!)"
