It is a very cosy house in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

The house is quirky, but in a good way. It felt like home by the end of the holiday. Nice kitchen and bathrooms. Stairs are narrow and steep. Really can’t recommend to old people. The railing in on the side of the wall and the other side is open, adding to the quirkiness:) and some danger... it’s a 15 min walk to the bus/railway station. If you can bike, nothing like it...

Comfotable property with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Pelle's home for three days before taking a river cruise. The home is clean, the beds are comfortable and the home is spacious. Pelle was out of town but we were met by Farah. She was great! Farah was very helpful in getting us oriented to the house and to Zaandam. She was very thorough and was prompt in responding to texts when we had questions during our stay.

The only drawback was the washer did not work. I will also warn the steps are steep and use care when using them. Pantry items may vary; there was a good variety of spices, coffee and tea for our use; we did not cook but there were abundant dishes, glassware, pots, pans, etc for use.

Zandaam is a great little town and it has plenty to offer. It was a great place to relax. If we return to the area, Pelle's home will be a place to stay!

Wonderful home close to Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Zaandam. The home was well stocked with necessities. The kitchen had many of the basics in the cabinets, extra towels and paper goods were available, the beds were comfortable - we couldn't have asked for more! The washing machine was a bit finicky to get to work, but we finally figured it out. Transportation in to Amsterdam was easily accessible. Zaandam was a nice town and there were many places to enjoy and eat at in the square which was walking distance from the home. We enjoyed our stay very much and would not hesitate to recommend the home to others. Thank you Pelle and Viktoria!

A great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We've just come back from a week in Zaandam and Amsterdam, and Pelle's place was a great place to stay.

Six of us stayed (a family of 5 and a friend) and there was plenty of space in a stylishly decorated house that really fit our image of what it would be like in The Netherlands. The local area and the house are exactly as described by Pelle and the welcome from Pelle's friend Farah was warm and she was very informative for first-time visitors to The Netherlands.

Although we didn't get to meet Pelle himself, we did talk to him several times via the HomeAway messaging system, and he was friendly, efficient and helpful - a pleasure to deal with.

The house was well equipped for cooking so we cooked at home a few times.

The nearest supermarket was only a 5 minute walk and the town centre, with some Italian, Spanish Tapas, Greek restaurants, a delicious ice cream shop and a Chinese take away was a 10 minute walk.

Zaandam and the surrounding area north of Amsterdam has a lot of history, so do your homework before you go, and plan to look around. Zaanse Schans was only 10 minutes drive away and we spent a whole day there. Staying at Pelle's house and just heading south into Amsterdam every day would be a real shame. The train fare for an adult costs around 6.50 Euros return to the Central Amsterdam station which we think was a reasonable price to pay to come back to a nice, spacious, quiet house at the end of a busy day, rather than staying in Central Amsterdam.

If we go back to The Netherlands for another holiday (which is quite likely, given how interesting it is and how friendly Dutch people are!) we will definitely be in touch with Pelle again.
