About Anrik Engelhard

I am born&grown, educated in Amsterdam, but lived and worked for years in tropical areas as a doctor (clinical and public health). My wife Carla works for the Municipality of Amsterdam. We love to make long bicycle tours in Holland and abroad. We are active in a local group of climate activists for CO2 reduction among citizens.

Anrik Engelhard purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Anrik Engelhard chose Waterland

Carla became somehow 'claustrophic' in our previous 7 th floor apartment. To our surprise we ended up in Amsterdam North where nature is in the backyard....We were very lucky to find this place and never take it for granted.

What makes this cottage unique

After an exiting day in town get rid of the noise and dust. Park your car secure in front of the house at no cost. Even better, leave your car next day; take our (free!) bicycles. After 20 minutes you are in town after enjoying the view from the (free/7x24) ferry. Even taxi drivers often say: 'Wow, I didn't know we have places like this in Mokum' !! (local nick name of Amsterdam).

Notes:
The Garden House is an co-built cottage, very well insulated (cool in summer!), central heating (floor), rainwater reuse system (toilet). Another room in the house is (though not very frequently) used as office for an environmental foundation. By no way this will limit your privacy. No traffic noise day and night; village life, but still close to centre of town. Free parking saves you €30 per day at least.

Relaxing, quiet stay

Super place in Amsterdam North. Cycles included in the rental price, which were really appreciated. Would return without qualms. Anrik and Carla were lovely hosts.

Wonderful house and host!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our 4-night stay here, which flew by much too quickly. The house was just lovely and so very comfortable, and Anrik was so welcoming, informative, and helpful!

Wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic spot right outside the city. Besides using the bikes to tour Amsterdam, we enjoyed biking around the small town. The grocery store nearby is excellent! Would stay here again, no question about it.

Beautiful and comfortable guest home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful cottage just outside Amsterdam. Convenient to get in to the city, but enough removed to enjoy the quieter side of the country. The cottage is well stocked and all of the bed linens are super comfy. Highly recommend.

Great little cottage with easy access to downtown Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this gardenhouse. Cosy, it had all the comforts of all small home. The cottage and general location were a great place to relax after a spending the day visiting downtown Amsterdam. We had no car and commuting to and from downtown/Schipol airport was easy. You really feel you are in the countryside, about 25-30 mins. from the Amsterdam's train station. Bikes are available at the cottage to ride around, a nice touch. We even spent a day in the immediate area, watching boats clearing the locks and walking along the river. Beds are comfortable and amenities were complete. Note the room upstairs is accessed using a steep staircase/ladder --something to note for people with mobility issues. The small supermarket nearby has everything you would need and a nice little restaurant. No regrets whatsoever renting this property and would do so again.

The region around the Garden House is typically Dutch: history of our struggle against the sea; where Rembrandt painted; historical and contemporary architecture; tour along the fishermans villages along the IJsselmeer (Volendam, Edam, Marken) Open air museum Zaanse Schans. And... van Gogh, Rijksmuseum, Eye (film cineam&museum), and just walk along the canals.... Amsterdam is great, though small: everything within easy reach!
