Perks for the Parents

This spacious family home is close to Amsterdam and Utrecht and has plenty of space to play with indoor and outdoor toys, playgrounds nearby and a children’s farm a short walk away. Half of a double villa (185 sqm) dating to 1912, the charming family home has been recently renovated and fully modernized, and has a big and deep garden. It is situated in a peaceful neighborhood with a train station a 5-minute walk away, and the Dutch countryside an easy drive away. Naarden is an ideal base for exploring Amsterdam and surrounding areas: it is close to Amsterdam (20 km), Utrecht (30 km), both accessible by car or train. 


Why Kids Love it

The owners have 2 young boys (3 and 5 years old) and the house is stocked with lots of books, inside and outdoor toys and a trampoline. The spacious house has 2 children’s bedrooms and a bathroom with tub. The dining table has 3 high chairs. An open lounge area at the top of the house has a flat screen TV with Playstation. Nearby you can find multiple local playgrounds and a children’s farm within a 7-minute walk and the amusement park Oud Valkeveen a 10-minute drive away. Kids can play in the street or in the garden happily and safely.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. Clean sheets and towels will be provided. Explore the neighborhood on 2 adult bikes, and 2 children bikes (one with 2 toddler seats). Netflix and WiFi are offered for guest use. No smoking. This is a private family home; please respect it as if it were your own home. Note that there are balconies on the first floor from the bedrooms, including the children’s bedroom. Children may need to be supervised on the balconies. There are no stair gates. Car rental is useful if you plan to use this home as a base from which to explore the Netherlands but it’s by no means essential; the Netherlands has a reliable public transit network connecting every major city, and the nearest train station is a 5-minute walk from the house.

Naarden, Outside Amsterdam

Star-shaped and surrounded by water

This north Holland town, 40 minutes east of Amsterdam, is like nowhere you’ve ever been before. Fully fortified, it is built in the shape of a star, with walls and a moat around it. Explore its heritage at the Fortress Museum, stroll through the streets to discover a 14th century church or take a boat trip around the fortifications to admire them up close.
