We were close to the bus stop for Amsterdam & Edam,with supermarket close as well.Both Vollendam & Edam were fun to visit, as well as all the museums & activities in Amsterdam.
Volendam is a great location as it is a tourism town and is within a 25 minute bus ride to Amsterdam. The apartment we stayed in was a good size for 5+ people and our hosts made sure our stay was comfortable.
The hosts were wonderful. Our flight had been delayed, so we were very late upon arrival, but Peter and Esmee were gracious and helpful. The property was just right for our needs. It was also very clean and the appliances were simple and easy to use. The neighborhood is well lit and quiet. We found the closest general store to be a 7-9 minute walk. There are a few bus stops 3-5 minutes walk from the home. The bus ride to central Amsterdam then takes 25-30 minutes.
