Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Amsterdam. Colette et son mari nous ont accueilli chaleureusement et donné de précieux conseils et avis pour découvrir Amsterdam mais aussi ces alentours. La chambre est très confortable, très propre et le p'tit dej servi tous les matins est très copieux. Nous remercions Colette et son mari pour nous avoir fait découvrir Amsterdam sous un autre angle car ce fut un merveilleux séjour. Merci!!! Fatima & le jeune homme

Lors de notre sejour, Colette a su nous conseiller en fonction de nos envies, en parfaite hotesse de maison, discrete mais toujours à l'écoute.La chambre etait tres propre et disposait de suffisamment de meuble de rangement. Le petit dejeuner sur la terrasse...memorable, très copieux et accompagné du chant des perruches. Nous garderons un très bon souvenir de cette rencontre à mi chemin entre la ville et la campagne.

Colette's B&B was like being at home. Our family of five was very comfortable in the two rooms that Collette provided. Collette made our experience personal and plentiful. After breakfast each morning, Collette would provide us with maps and any other information we needed to plan our day out. The area, that is situated just outside of Amsterdam, was a high point of our stay with its lovely walks, canals, windmill, shops and restaurants. We'd highly recommend Collett's for anyone seeking a memorable trip to the Netherlands. Thank you, Collette!
Thank you for your kind words it was very nice to have you and your lovely family Regards Colette

Colette went above and beyond to ensure our stay was a pleasant one. She is so very knowledgeable about Amsterdam and even shared with us some great secret places that only some locals know about. Her accommodations are lovely and her breakfast was fantastic. Lovely safe neighborhood and nice to walk through. Right on the canals.

Hi all Thank you for looking after us last week, you really made us feel at home. We all felt like part of the family. We had a great time during the week and thanks to your help, got to see quite a lot of different places, the kids had a wonderful time and left very happy and very tired after we made them walk to so many different places. We will remember a lot of wonderful things from our time in Amsterdam, but most of all we will remember staying in the most pleasant and friendly accommodation that we have ever or probably will ever stay in. As you display on a sign on your wall, we all arrived as guests, but left as friends, and would love to meet up with you again one day in the future. You would always be welcome to our home if you ever decide to come over to Liverpool. With love Tony, Becky, Emily and Billy

I stayed with Colette for five days in September 2011 as a 49th birthday present to myself. It was truly a pleasure as I was looking for a B&B near, but not in, Amsterdam, and Colette is very helpful. With my advance reservation she was gracious enough to pick me up from the (free) ferry that departs from the Central Station in Amsterdam to cross the Ij. She gave me every sort of advice I asked for: how best to get into and out of the city, where to rent a bike, how to get to picturesque nearby villages by bike, even how to save money by taking the GVB bus rather than the local Arriva bus. I shared a room with my brother and we had a very complete breakfast every day served in our room at an agreed upon hour. Brown and white bread, juice, coffee or tea, sliced cheese and ham, fruit, yogurt, jam and margarine and even sandwich bags to pack what we didn't finish to take as lunch! Very fresh food and a wide variety over the five days, I really enjoyed it all! Not only was the welcome very warm, Colette invited us to use the deck in her back garden when we wanted, and what more could we ask for? The weather was great, the house is both beautifully decorated and impeccably maintained and the neighborhood is lovely. I

My husband and I stayed at Colette's the first week in September, 2011. Upon our arrival, Colette met us at the ferry stop, across from the train station. We immediately fell in love with the town of Landsmeer, where the B&B is. It is just a short walk to the bus station from her B&B, then a short bus ride into the center of Amsterdam. Our room was very well appointed, roomy and spotless. She had everything we neended. The breakfasts were delicious, with eggs, yogurt, meats, cheeses, breads, jams, fruit, a sweet treat, and great coffee, all delivered to our room! What a tour guide! She gave us recommendations for places to go, how to get there, and what to do. If it was a walk in a specific Amsterdam neighborhood, or a visit to a nearby village on a bicycle, Colette knew the specifics on the best way to do it. It was a lifesaver for us, because Amsterdam can be overwhelmingly large, with lots to do. We were ending a 5-month trek around Europe, and Colette opened her home to us and made us feel like we were part of the family. We will definitely stay with her again when we return to Amsterdam.

I just got home, one hour ago and could not wait to write a review of this very special B&B. I, truly, felt like I was staying with a long lost family the entire time I was there. There was an instant connection with Collette and meeting her husband and 3 handsome sons you wanted to be home every evening just to be a part of that. Collette takes an enormous amount of pride in what she does and does extremely well. I am a retired flight attendant and this stay made me comfortable to relax and reconnect with the wonderful dutch people with no worries about safety or anything else. Thank you Collette for the most wonderful stay I've had anywhere in the world! You can expect me again next year and every other year!

First saw Collette's listed on Steve Rick's "Graffiti Wall". Seemed like a good place given what I read. Well, it turned out to be absolutely terrific! A quiet respite 15 minutes from downtown. Collette provides very good information. We will stay there when/if we return to Amsterdam.
