My place is only 10 car minutes away from Schiphol airport and it will take you about 20 minutes to get to Amsterdam city centre. That being said, this is a quiet place in a safe and friendly neighborhood. There is free and easy parking on the premisses and in the street.
Badhoevedorp is right between Schiphol airport and Amsterdam city center. Nearby facilities, within half a mile, include two small town shopping centers, three supermarkets and several simple and luxury restaurants. (Italian, French, Chineese and Dutch) as well as the local pub "The Old Dutch"
There is a playground around the corner, a public indoor pool, a mini animal-farm for kids and countless opportunities for great nature walks.
Easy walking distance (200m) to the busstop which will take you to Schiphol Airport within 10 minutes. The bus to Amsterdam is a 10 minute walk and than 30 minutes to Amsterdam city center by public transport (bus).
Free and easy parking in front of the house and on the driveway, 20 car-minutes to Amsterdam Leidseplein.
A boat tour in an open boat through the Amsterdam canals is one of the must-do's visiting Amsterdam. Being a skipper in the Amsterdam canals I can offer you a great guided tour for a special price.
The house is yours but please be respectful to our neighbors! In the garden is an Annex with its own entrance. I could be that my sun and I or guests stay in the Cottage during your stay.

If you need any help or assistance I'll be only a phonecall away!
Other things to note

We have OV-chipcards for cheaper public transportation available for you, just let me know and I'll charge them before your arrival.
As I don't charge any cleaning fees I expect you to leave our home cleaned, all the necessities are available in the house.
The Cottage is a small annex in the back of our garden with its own entrance. It could be possible that me and my son or guests will stay in the Cottage for a night.
