Villa Op de Horsten - once the home of the machinist of the De Poel pump, now a homely bed and breakfast, is situated in a peaceful moorland landscape near Amsterdam.

Our house is located in one of the most beautiful spots of the Waterland region, on the dike between Monnickendam and Marken. From every room you have an idyllic view over the Gouwzee, and recognize on the horizon the towns of Volendam and Marken.

On the dike leads a bike / hiking trail along (own access from the house). Also the well-known hiking trail "Het Zuiderzeepad" runs here. Monnickendam with play tower, fish smokehouses and harbor pubs is just a short walk away.

In spring, when our lambs frolic in the pasture, one feels almost like on a farm.

Lovely Country Home Close to Sites

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this lovely country home. It is very close to the sites in Amsterdam, as well as the charming local villages. The home is very clean and was the perfect size for our extended family of 10. We enjoyed the peaceful setting that this property provides. The description of the property was accurate and above our expectations. The property owners are a very nice couple and are very helpful in making suggestions for touring the area. The restaurants at nearby Monnickendam were excellent. We ate at a local steakhouse and the ice cream shop just across the street from the restaurant. The local business owners as well as the property owners were all very gracious and patient with the language barrier, as we only speak English. We would highly recommend this property.

Absolut empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Meine Tochter und ich waren 5 Nächte dort und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Das Vermieterehepaar ist sehr freundlich und aufmerksam.Das Haus und die Lage wunderschön - ringsrum grün, Schafe und Wasser und auch ein kleiner niedlicher Hund begrüßte uns jeden morgen freundlich im Haus.

Für Radfahrer und Wanderer nahezu ideal. Fahrräder können direkt geliehen werden.

Unser Zimmer war sehr sauber und zweckmäßig ausgestattet und so ein bequemes Bett habe ich bisher selten vorgefunden. Das Frühstück sehr üppig, liebevoll zubereitet und abwechslungsreich. Ein Supermarkt ist nicht sehr weit entfernt und auch Restaurants können im nahegelegenem idyllischen Monnickendam besucht werden. Auch das kleine Städtchen Edam mit seinem Kaasmarkt ist nur 10km entfernt und sehenswert.

P+R (in max. 15 Autominuten zu erreichen)ist in der Nähe, so daß man in gut 30 Minuten am Hauptbahnhof von Amsterdam ist und das auch noch sehr günstig. (Parken direkt in Amsterdam ist teuer und die Straßen mit Fahrrädern und Touris überfüllt, dass man sicherlich ewig brauchen würde um da mit dem Auto durch zu kommen. Mit den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln ist alles sehr gut zu erreichen und man hat nur kurze Wartezeiten).

Die Vermieter stehen bei der Freizeitplanung mit hilfreichen Tips zur Seite. Wir würden sehr gern wieder kommen.

Liebe Grüße aus Braunschweig

Beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Our room was really clean and nice. It was big enough for 3 people and it even had a mini fridge. The breakfast was really good, better than in some cheap hotels we have visited. The bus stop was really close and it takes about 30 to drive to city center. Keep in mind that the one way bus ticket costs 5 euros.

Schöne Tage bei Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Die Beschreibung hatte nicht zuviel versprochen. Die Unterkunft freundlich, sehr sauber, ausgesprochen nette und kompetente Gastgeber, ein Superfrühstück, die Aussicht aus dem Zimmer unbeschreiblich schön. Morgens den Sonnenaufgang und abends den Sonnenuntergang zu beobachten ist schon selten. Amsterdam nicht weit und durch P&R unkompliziert und billig zu erreichen. Wir empfehlen die Unterkunft weiter und werden bestimmt wiederkommen.
