Just 20 minutes out of Amsterdam you find this oasis of nature, where you can wake up with the sounds of the birds. The house is in a well preserved nature district where you can walk, cycle, swim and canoe. We can provide a canoe or bike to rent (10 euro a day or 40 a week), its also possible to rent a e-bike for 25 euro a day (which takes you fast to the train station). My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
Plenty of free parking. Excellent internet.

Nice little place in a quiet and charming nature environment, surrounded by forest and water channels. Charlotte is an amazing host! She picked me up from the train station and make me feel home. She is discreet but there to help you with anything, and add nice little touches :)

Charlotte is a wonderful host to a beautiful little cottage in Ankeveen, a nature reserve jewel close to Amsterdam. She organized to pick me up from the train station when I arrived and had ensured the place was well stocked with the essentials, including some healthy snack food…

Charlotte's place was like a dream. So perfect! Just 15-20mins from Amsterdam, in the countryside (one of the most beautiful countrysides I've ever seen) Her guesthouse is just perfect! The place melts your heart, it's so inviting and has a warm, familiar feeling to it. Very clea…

Perfect for a quiet peaceful getaway - tranquil surroundings and beautiful little cottage.

Charlotte is a pleasant host and her place is located in a beautiful scenic area close to Amsterdam and Utrecht. I went for a run in the mornings which was really great. Only few comments to make on the apartment. It got quite humid during our stay. Moreover the smell of the ca…

Response from Charlotte:
I'm sorry to hear the stay was not completely to your liking. I do my very best to have happy guest, so I appreciate the feedback. About the humidity. As the house is near the lake, it gets more humid than in Amsterdam. I cannot change that. Also, it was very rainy/humid outside. But I did everything possible to make it as dry as possible. I installed a non-stop dehumidifier just before you came, which would take care of the humidity 24/7. Of course, when you cook or shower, this will take a while, but the machine does the job. About the smell, I'm really sorry to hear that. The cat however never comes in the guesthouse, never! So it must be something else. I will look in to that and hope to find which is the cause of it. Thank you for letting me know. I have to stress here that the cat won't come inside, as some people are allergic to cats. About the privacy, yes I do have neighbors, but I have done everything I can to make the privacy as high as possible. It would be very hard for them to see you because of the arrangements I took for your privacy. Of course, it's possible that you can hear them, I mentioned its a residential area. Above all, I thank you for staying with me!
