Definitely recommend

Thank you for a wonderful stay In Amsterdam. the breakfasts were delicious. All of the advice on sight seeing was helpful. The assistance to figure out transportation from here to Uden was very much appreciated! It was nice to stay in your lovely home - so close to many places to visit but a nice quiet place to return to after long fun days exploring the city. Two days was not nearly long enough, we hope to come back again! And will definitely recommend your place to anyone traveling to Amsterdam.

Thanks again

Thank you for a great stay during our short trip to Amsterdam. Great location for visiting musea and breakfast dishes along with conversation were high points.

We recommend your place.

Thank you for your hospitality. We very much enjoyed staying at your home during our stay in Amsterdam. It is very conveniently located with easy access to everything to see in Amsterdam and thank you for sharing the cards for public transport. We definitely recommend your place!

Vielen Dank

Vielen herzlichen Dank für Euer Gastfreundschaft. Wir haben die Zeit bei euch in der Wohnung genossen. Vielen dank auch für die netten Gespräche, die zahlreichen Tipps über Veranstaltungen und Ausflugsziele in Amsterdam. Das Frühstück war auch lecker und hat uns allen sehr gut geschmeckt. Unsere Eltern freuen sich schon euch irgendwann kennenzulernen, denn sollten sie nach Amsterdam kommen, werden sie aufjedenfall das B&B Maryandwillem buchen.

Homeaway review

Está bien situado, ni está en el mismo centro ni tampoco en las afueras. Zona tranquila y residencial. Transporte público muy cerca tanto del tranvía como el autobús. 

El trato excelente, pareja muy agradable y atenta. Los desayunos han sido maravillosos cada día algo distinto pero exquisito. Las camas tanto la de matrimonio como la individual muy cómodas. Sin duda lo recomendamos para visitar Amsterdam.


Dear Mary, dear Willem,

Thank you for my special birthday and your hospitality, for your special breakfast!

Would not look to stay elsewhere as we return to Amsterdam.

Thank you for your warm welcome and hospitality. So peaceful yet very close to the heart of Amsterdam. Lovely surroundings you have a beautiful home, with every comfort. Your breakfasts where amazing: you can taste the pride you have put into making of homemade jams, fresh fruit, different cultures, different tastes. Again thank you for introducing us to lovely tastes. We could not have asked for anything better and would not look to stay elsewhere as we return to Amsterdam.

Bis dahin alles Gute

Vielen Dank für die wunderbare Zeit bei euch. Wir kamen hier nach der verregenten Fahrrad fahrt erschöpft und kalt und nasz an. Wir konnten uns wunderbar erholen und es fält uns nicht leicht. wieder auf die vollbepackten Räder zu steigen und Annschaulich Seiten eurer fast Freundschaft zu verlaszen.

Wir kommen bestimmt wieder. Bis dahin alles Gute

Wildly surprised

Thank you so very much for sharing your home with our family home here in Amsterdam. We manege here to reconnect with our family roots and have been wildly surprised by such a feeling of home. Not only the lovely room and breakfast, but both of your open and honest friendships and company appreciated. Our little Lucy has made friends in the playground and we are on our bikes she asks us when we are going "home" ( your house!) I will never forget sitting on your back patio, hearing the doors open and wondering which of the William's would be walking  in... Yours or mine!. We had such a great time cooking together on our last night I love the Indonesian flavoures mixed with the dutch meat. Our two Willems are two in a pod. They love to go walking or sit and listen to music. For Will and I by staying with you and you have made it more of a reality for our family to make this annual vacation or eventually a permanent home . we can see ourselves living in Amsterdam after staying with you. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you both soon either home or in Colorado.

International, freundlich,hilfsbereit und lässig.

Wir waren zu Besuch in Amsterdam und haben gleich einen wunderfullen Eindrück gewonnen. So wir Ihr als Gast geben, haben wir auch Eure Stadt kennen gelernt: international, freundlich,hilfsbereit und lässig. Auch Dank Eueres schönen Hauses konnten wir Amsterdam authentisch kennen  lernen. Das Frühstuck stärkte uns jeden Morgen für lange Zeit bei unseren Touren und beim “Ratsch” mit Mary am Morgens enführen wir so Eures über Stadt und Land. Unsere Begeisterung ist so grosz dass wir sagen können Pfiats Euch bis zum nächsten Mal.

Keep up the good work

Wij hebben alleen maar lof voor jullie omdat wij met open armen ontvangen zijn in jullie B&B. Jullie zijn warme mensen en dat straalt ook uit in jullie fijne huis dat 4 dagen ons thuis mocht zijn. Wij hebben genoten aan de ontbijttafel omdat we zo'n lekker ontbijt kregen en zo'n waarde vollen gesprekken voerden. Besef ook dat uwe huis perfect gelegen is om alle hoeken van Amsterdam te ontdekken. Wij hebben van elke seconde tijdens ons verblijf bij jullie en in de stad genoten. Keep up the good work. dikke knuffel
