Perks for the Parents

This cozy Dutch family home is in a quiet village close to local playgrounds and 10-15 minutes from Amsterdam. A traditional house, it is modern and cozy with a great garden for kids (fenced) and plenty of amenities for visiting families, including Netflix and WiFi. The open kitchen has a large stove and 2 ovens, along with a dishwasher and a bar. Family bikes are provided so you can experience the area like locals. It’s easy to jump on a train to reach the city, or explore Holland at large, or to visit nearby attractions like nature reserves, the star-shaped fortress of Naarden and local playgrounds.

Why Kids Love it

This house has lots of toys and books for kids under 10, and is a great family space with a living room large enough for wheeled toys. The front garden has a trampoline and the back garden, which is fenced, is big enough to play a game of football. The house is situated in a child-friendly street where there is very little traffic due to a dead end. One bathroom has a separate bathtub and shower, and the 2 kids rooms are bright and colorful with toys and sweet kid-friendly details. It’s a short walk from local playgrounds. The owners have 2 young children, a girl and a boy (aged 8 and 7).

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. The house is well maintained and child friendly; the back garden is fenced in but the front garden is not. Free parking spots available. The hosts are happy to help with any questions to help you have the best stay possible. Car rental is useful for this location but the country is well connected by train and there is a train station a 10-minute walk away. Bikes are included for 3 adults (of which a bakfiets/cargo bike) along with 2 children bikes (age 6 to 10). The house has a DVD player, Netflix and WiFi.

About the Location

The house is situated in the ‘Spiegel’ neighbourhood of Bussum, a small town just to the southeast of Amsterdam. It’s easy to reach the city by train or car, taking 15-30 minutes. The railway station is a 10-minute walk from the house, and trains go every 15 minutes to Amsterdam Science Park (16 minutes), Amsterdam Muiderpoort (19 minutes), Amsterdam Central Station (26 minutes) and Utrecht Central Station (23 minutes). The historic town of Naarden-Vesting with a lovely market is only 5 minutes away and the nature reserve Naardermeer is 700 m away. Schiphol airport is a 30-minute drive away.

Accommodation Details

This 200 sqm home has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. It includes a hallway, toilet, spacious living room, gas fireplace, large dinner table and open kitchen on the ground floor. The first floor has 1 bedroom with kingsize bed, a bathroom and a study. There is a kids play room which can double as a guest bedroom. The upper floor has 2 kids bedrooms, each with a twin bed and single mattress beneath it. A crib is available on request. The bathroom on the first floor has a tub and a shower, while the bathroom on the 2nd floor has a shower. There are front and back gardens, with a barbecue and large dinner table in the back garden. In the front garden, there is a trampoline and a shed for the bicycles.

Style Notes

Modern, bright and light. The kids bedrooms are full of toys in this light and welcoming home, and there is an additional kids play room. The downstairs living spaces include a great dining table, ideal for family meals, while throughout the house, high ceilings add to the feeling of space. We love the charming garden with summerhouse, the sleek fireplace and the characterful children’s bedrooms, tucked into the eaves of the house.

We are a family of 4 (two children aged 7 and 8) and have been living very happily in Bussum for 6 years now. We love the neighbourhood and enjoy the surroundings here. We are an active and sportive family. We enjoy our house and because of the central location in the Netherlands we're in the middle of everything.

We had a very peaceful stay at the Spiegel Residence. Just what we needed after months of craziness at work! The house was squeaky clean, well equipped and the kids just loved the play room. A short 10 minutes walk to the train station, it is well located to explore Amsterdam and Utrecht. We would definitely recommend a stay for a family who wants to be away from city life. Thank you Philippine & family!

Bussum, Outside Amsterdam

Green and friendly

Just a 20 minute car-drive away from Amsterdam and Utrecht, Bussum is one of the most green, friendly and beautiful suburbs of Amsterdam. Do as the locals do: cycle through forests and meadows, visit Naarden’s star-shaped fort or try extreme sports with the kids at RockSteady, with its climbing wall.
