What Past Guests Are Saying
Just a few minutes from the "hustle and bustle" of the big city, Amsterdam, this picturesque garden house offers some quiet time following a busy day sightseeing. Very quaint and confortable, it offers all of the convenience of home, even a friend. Anrik loves his amsterdam and strives to share his passion and knowledge with guests so they might benefit, as we did, from his wisdom.
Response from Anrik Engelhard - 11/15/2013
Dear John et Francine,
Thanks a lot for your review. It revives memories to you very pleasant visit: good to see how you enjoyed to visit your daugher and spent a few "prime time days"together! Have a nice winter and you are always welcome!
Peaceful, private and very comfortable
I used the gardenhouse as a retreat for a couple of days so that I could work on my novel. It was everything I had hoped for and more. The house is cosy and comfortable, with floor heating and a brand new kitchen and bathroom (the toilet is flushed with rainwater). The bed was excellent. And the neighborhood is very quiet. The location is beautiful as well. Right at the harbor of Schellingwoude, with magnificent views of amsterdam Center at the other side of the IJ river. You can walk or bike endlessly from there, whether to the buzzling city or through the countryside, whatever you like. Landmarkt - an enormous eco-foodmarket and restaurant is at walking distance. Also, Anrik is a warm and welcoming host who will go through great lengths to make you feel at home. But if you wish so, he lets you have all the privacy you need as well. North is the upcoming neighbourhood in amsterdam. A lot of popular restaurants have opened there recently, there is the spectacular new filmmuseum Eye and much more. Also, taking the ferry to the city center and crossing the IJ, is always nice.
