Warm, charming home and community, great host
We had an awesome stay. The host was concerned and helpful when we had difficulty finding our way to her home. She met us where we could park (which was just a half a block away), took us to her home and gave us a tour and answered questions. Great stay, great host, awesome town. Shopping for groceries was just under the bridge, and everything we needed (including the train) was within walking distance. The only downside is a bar located adjacent to the property, can get loud at night. Would stay again!
renovated, unique, spacious place convenient to old and new town amersfoort
my friend and i were traveling through the netherlands by bike and stayed here for two nights. the space itself was perfect -- enough room for both of us to spread out and get a good night's sleep and a hot shower. it was also very clean and very well appointed. neither of us had been to amersfoort before, and the town is charming. plenty to do, great restaurants, and this location was perfect to access all of it. it's also a stone's throw away from the old gate to the city. so cool to be right next to this historical landmark. the host was incredibly helpful in suggesting places to go eat and things to see. would love to go back! highly recommend this spot.
comfy stay in beautiful medieval Amersfoort
The apartment is extremely comfortable, nice kitchen area, living room, and bedroom with a high slanted ceiling (up short flight of steep stairs). Jeanine and Rudy were extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations and other advice. The location is right by Koppelpoort, an ancient gate into the gorgeous medieval center of Amersfoort, full of interesting, picturesque streets and great places to eat. One slight drawback: because it's so close to a major tourist attraction, and next to a small local bar with pool table etc., there were often people outside our bedroom window late at night, talking loudly. Otherwise, perfect.
Wonderful location, beautiful home
We spent a few days in Jeanine's home and had a wonderful stay. The home is centrally located in the old town, steps from shops and restaurants and great walks. Inside, everything is beautiful. Jeannine is a thoughtful hostess, leaving us Easter cake and tulips for our Easter stay. We would look forward to another stay.
Simply perfect 🙏✨❤️
Incredible hosts, beautiful place and the location couldn’t be more perfect. We are able to walk to everything we need. Look forward to our return next week! Thanks Jeanine and Onno!!
Comfortable accommodation in Amersfoort's historic old town.
The property is comfortable and well equipped for self-catering. Other facilities such as wi-fi and television were reliable. In fact the wi-fi was one of the best we have had in the Netherlands, useful for keeping in touch with family back home. A good AH supermarket is a 5 minute walk (Aldi a little further) but please don't ignore the excellent town markets that happen on several days each week for fruit, veg, bread, cheese, fish, meat etc. Want a very large Dutch appeltaart? €5 from HEMA. Bargain!
You can spend some considerable time in the old town itself, surely one of the best preserved in northern Europe. However, the proximity (15 minute walk) of the rail and bus station means you can also travel out of town in many different directions, urban and rural. Fancy a walk in the woods? Train to Putten and the connecting Bus#107 in the direction of Garderen...several places you could get off to walk.
So....recommended overall for a helpful owner, comfortable accommodation, a delightful old town and a good location to access public transport to other places in Holland.
Het Spuihuisje is located next to the famous Koppelpoort and a small café. The Koppelpoort, the calling card of historic Amersfoort, is a unique combination of port land and water gate, the only one in the Netherlands! This gate dates from 1425 also gives access to the 'new' and 'old' part of Amersfoort.
On one side of the Koppelpoort is modern Eemplein, where you can cozy up to the movie, to the museum can rent QUAY or a sloop. You can also dine in the various restaurants such as Dara, Sushi Today. If you continue your walk along the river Eem you can take a look at 'new town'.
The other side of the Koppelpoort offers plenty of opportunities to climb to taste the old town of Amersfoort culture in the Museum Flehite, the Mondriaan House, the 'Long John' or are part of the actual festivities. A comprehensive city tour or a cruise with the waterline should not be missed during your visit.
With its central location, there are numerous cycling routes in the neighborhood, but also further afield towards the Soesterduinen or Treek is definitely recommended. Highly recommended is the bicycle boat Eemlijn, which provides a daily cruise from the Eemhaven - near the Spuihuisje - with pick-up points in Soest, Baarn, Eemdijk, Huizen or Spakenburg, and ends in Amersfoort.
