Situated just 9 miles from Amsterdam in the heart of the dutch countryside, surrounded by farms and dykes. Easy access to Amsterdam by bus or car (there us a free ferry to the heart of Amsterdam within a 15 mins drive with free parking at the ferry terminal). The town of Volandam is close by (about 3 miles) and has a supermarket and other shops and cafes.
The owner, Fre, is lovely and lives next door so is close at hand if you have any queries (we popped round and asked if she had any takeaway menus one night and she was more than happy to give us what she had). She also knocked one morning to tell us that the farm next door were letting the cows out for the spring. We went out and saw the cows dancing in delight as they went into the field and we got to stroke the farms recently born piglets. This was one of the highlights if our trip and we wouldn't have known about it if Fre hadn't knocked and told us.
The house is very homely and full of dutch character and has everything you need. There is outdoor seating so you can sit outside and enjoy the dutch countryside. We came away having felt we had experienced the "true Holland" which I don't think could have been achieved from staying in the heart of Amsterdam.
