“A fantastic, cosy and homely townhouse in a perfect location”

It's been only a few days back in London and I miss it already :(

I have travelled to Holland on a number of occasions, staying in hostels and hotels, and found this trip to be extra special as we made the decision to stay in this lovely townhouse. At first I was hesitant as I'm a first timer on flip key, however as soon I made the confirmation, Pelle was very responsive in helping answer questions and helped us prepare and settle when arriving.

I personally reviewed in depth many different apartments//townhouses and hotels to stay during our visit to Holland. All reviews and descriptions of this town house reflected our experience perfectly. The town house was wonderful to stay in; with the most comfortable sofas and beds, hot showers, kitchen with all working appliances, tv, strong wifi, sound system, candles, american fridge freezer, dishwater.... the list goes on. I especially liked the large windows in the living room and bedrooms as they brought in a lot of light.

The neighbours were also very friendly and willing to help. We had a warm welcome when we arrived - there was no waiting around and we settled in instantly. there were 6 of us (3 couples), this house accommodated perfectly for all of us in terms of space and privacy.

As the descriptions indicated, Zaandam is a very pleasant, quiet and safe town. The house was within walking distance from the metro which made it very easy for us to get around. There was also a grocery store and other amenities literally 3 minutes walk away. I have visited Amsterdam on a number of occasions and found this location to be a great option as it provides the best of both, the quiet peaceful town of Zaandam and the busy touristic town of Amsterdam.

Recommended for all: couples, families or friends.
We would love to visit again.

Easy access to Amsterdam and stayed in luxury. No intrusion and Zaandam is excellent as well. We had a warm welcome. Easy access to shops and supermarkets. Good value for money. Excellent food. We found the Dutch people extremely friendly and helpful. Even the RicKshaw drivers were helpful inexpensive and informative and fun. Many thanks to Pelle.

Stayed for 4 days in May and could not have been happier from the initial friendly contact to the speedy return of the deposit. All communications with Pele was fabulous, he couldn't have been anymore helpful. Arranged a taxi to pick us up at the airport and Farah to meet us at the house. Farah was great too, very helpful and didn't mind when we contacted her with our difficulty in getting the washing machine to start (our fault).
The house was ideal for us with the 3 bedrooms and the 2 baths. Extremely clean and was well fitted out for our stay.
The location was ideal. 5 mins walk to the local supermarket, a small square with some great eateries and 10 mins to the train station to catch the train into Amsterdam. We loved staying away from the centre of the city.
Thanks Pele & Farah for a memorable stay.

This property was fabulous!! There were 5 of us staying here and there was plenty of space. The area was beautiful, close to everything you needed, peaceful and safe.
The house itself was very clean and the beds, very comfortable indeed. The bathrooms are beautiful and the outside area, although needs some TLC, was pleasant as well.
I would recommend this house to anyone unless you have small children or bad knees.

“Best Alternative for Amsterdam stay”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My sister booked this place for a family of 5 a month or so ago for a one week April 2015 stay. When we arrived at the Zaandam train station, we were mesmerized by the unique architecture of the hotel just outside the station that we lost our bearing to this place despite a map we had prepared earlier. Nevertheless, people were so nice to redirect us. The townhouse is in a very quiet neighborhood and the street lined up with trees. We were greeted by the caretaker (Farah) who gave us a tour of the house and specific instructions as well as places to shop, etc. The full kitchen, washer & dryer has helped us minimize expense. It was a 5-minute walk to the grocery to stock up our food supplies for our week long stay. The house has actually 2-1/2 bath, with the 1/2 bath underneath the stairs. We were very comfortable during our entire stay and enjoyed all its amenities. We will definitely seek this place again on our next Amsterdam visit.
