You can book your own wooden Little House in the charming garden of Nancy & Hans Wiltink, called 'Garden at Sea' (Tuin aan Zee). An oasis in the city, next to an old lock in the canal. It's built as a place to relax, no cooking facilities.

The space
Long ago (once upon a time) the water between the city of Amsterdam and this garden was a salty sea.
Huge tall-ships passed the lock, coming back from the Indies, loaded with spices and other goods. The area later developped as an industrial area, with shipyards and related industries.
Nowerdays the North part of Amsterdam - Amsterdam across the sea so to speak - is rediscovered, and is seen as one of the most trendy neighbourhoods of the world.
nancy works as a storyteller, Hans is consultant for sustainable projects.

I have been living in Amsterdam since 1987 and as a storyteller and story guide I kbow a lot about it's history and culture. When we moved to the north of the city it was not a good neighbourhood. We saw it change. Both our daughters grew up here, and now their friends see the North as the place to be. Ask me, and I'll tell you more.
