The spacious room of about 25 square meters has it’s own bathroom with shower and washbasin. There’s room for 2 to 4 people on a double bed and a nice sofa bed (pricing is based on 2 guests). From the room you can see the old church of Zaandijk. The centre of Amsterdam is only 15 min away from here. The Zaanse Schans is within walking distance.

The space

Facing the historical site the ‘Zaanse Schans’, with its authentic wooden houses en windmills, ‘Zit aan de Zaan’ opened up a bed & breakfast in 2009. Down here in Zaandijk you’ll get a notice how nice people live on the banks of the Zaan. The characteristic property ‘Zit aan de Zaan’ (meaning: located on the banks of the Zaan) is a 300 square meter piece of land, with a 25 by 5 meters long building on it. It used to be a restaurant, but after Monique and Jeroen bought it in 1998, they renovated it into a family home. Together with their 3 kids they enjoy a lovely life here. The guestroom has a lot of privacy and is located on the ground floor near the entrance of the house. Breakfast is served in the room.

I loved the apartment! Even the area it was in is amazing and the view from the apartment is breathtaking❤ very convenient to get to the city from here (there is a direct train that takes you and the ride is 18 minutes long). Felt like we got the best of Amsterdam because we got the crowded centre experience and the chill and relaxing suburb experience. Monique gave us breakfast as well and was an excellent host along with the rest of her family who were very welcoming as well!

Very nice room and really lovely hosts! So kind, welcoming and helpful. They really made me feel like part of the family which was great as I was travelling alone for work purposes. I would absolutely recommend staying in this great house with beautiful views of the river Zaan and windmills from the back garden. I can't thank you guys enough!

Monique and Her husband are Very lovely. The room is Perfect for 3 persons. The breakfast Very good. The emplacement is near Amsterdam (15mn by train) and when you are in their garden you can see windmills. The district is very pleasant like cottages in Center parks and very quiet. You can find a restaurant very near Monique's home (75 meters). A Very good emplacement.

We has a nice stay with Monique who is warm and professional in running her bnb. She keeps the room cozy and very clean and was accommodating our late arrival and early breakfast. Her place is convenient as we have rented a car. Btw, we enjoyed the breakfast.

Ik ben art director van beroep, moeder van 3 kinderen en getrouwd met mijn partner in crime. Wij hebben ons bedrijf de geheime dienst aan huis waarmee we reclame en video content bedenken en maken. Ik vind het erg leuk om mensen bij ons te ontvangen in onze gastenkamer. Vraag altijd of er plek is. De agenda is niet altijd up to date.
