Welcome in Aalsmeer! A very nice and lovely place just 20 minutes from Amsterdam, and very close to Schiphol (10min). I have a typical dutch house (anno 1911) and it is redecorated in a modern style.
The house has a very nice kitchen and beautiful garden which you can ofcourse use as well. For kids there is a trampoline outside and inside a separate playroom with a lot of toys and swing. The house is situated in the main shopping street of Aalsmeer with very nice shops. Although in the middle of the street it is very quiet in the nice and colourful garden. On fridays and saturdays there might be some noise from the popular pub in the street, mainly because people place their bikes near our house, I am totally used to it and don't hear it anymore ;-).
In Aalsmeer you can visit the Aalsmeer flower-auction, sail and surf at the Westeinder plassen, wellknown for beautiful bike trails and great restaurants. You can park for free near the house. The public transport is also nearby and within 10 minutes the bus will bring you to Schiphol, where you can take the train to Amsterdaml. You can also take a direct bus to Amsterdam. If you need a place close to Amsterdam but also would like to see something of the country side Aalsmeer is a great place. And also if you use Schiphol as a stop-over, Aalsmeer is a great place to just stay for the night and catch that early flight!
