In North Holland, Loosdrecht is made up of two small villages, which are perfect for exploring the surrounding nature trails whilst still being less than a one hour drive from Amsterdam. Loosdrecht is primarily known for its beautiful lakes, which these Airbnbs are all located near, so you can either unwind or, for the more adventurous, take part in the water sports available. Read on for our top 10 list of the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Loosdrecht, the Netherlands.
Located on the lake edge, this pretty, one-room cottage is perfect for those of you who like to be close to nature but still within 20 minutes’ reach of Amsterdam. The wooden cottage is like a cabin and the inside has areas for sleeping, sitting and cooking. The kitchen is well equipped with a four-burner induction plate and coffee machine. There is also a private terrace with seating, so you can enjoy your meal whilst listening to the sounds of nature across the lake.
The cottage is located in the back garden of the host’s property but has its own private entrance. This cottage still has a luxe feel with modern furnishings, including the unworked wooden tables, relaxing wooden seating with plush upholstery and the tall, white bar stalls.

This is a double bedroom with en-suite in a bright and spacious house. We love the amount of natural lighting in this property, let in by the extra large windows. The living room is cozy and looks out onto the back garden. A door from the living room takes you into the stylish bedroom, which has a unique lighting feature, floor to ceiling wooden shelving and a sea-blue feature wall.
This room, in turn, leads out onto a pretty back garden terrace area, which is perfect for enjoying breakfast on. The attention to detail in this property is obvious and the host even ensures that there is a stocked minibar ready, with soda, beer and wine.

This luxurious, eco-friendly studio apartment, which has an unmissable view of Loosdrecht Lake, has been decorated with 70 percent sustainable materials. The property can sleep up to five people: two in the master bedroom, two on the sleeper-sofa and one on a single bed.

This luxurious, three-story lakeside house is in a peaceful area, but it is lively during the summer months, as it is only 20 minutes away from Amsterdam. This property has not just one but two terraces, which overlook the harbor area. There are four bedrooms on site: two are smaller rooms, one is a single room and the fourth is an average, double sized bedroom.
Overall, the house is spacious and very comfortable. There are various panoramic views from the windows, but we think the best one is from the living room, where it opens up onto the garden patio. We love that the thoughtful hosts provide freshly baked bread on the first morning from the nearby bakery.

This large house, built in 1907, is just 20 minutes from Amsterdam and is nestled in between forests, lakes and pretty countryside. You can feel perfectly relaxed in the countryside whilst still having easy transport connections since the bus is right outside the property. Not only does this listing include the incredibly beautiful building but also the private garden, with seating areas, tennis courts and even a cabin with heating.
The house itself is unique in both its interior and exterior design. We just adore the grandeur of the finer details, from the deep, red walls to the luxe leather seating and mahogany dining table.

This traditional, Dutch-style property, with one double sized bedroom, is perfect for couples looking to explore a bit further than Amsterdam, which is 50 minutes away by car. The whole house is decorated with warm furnishings and is really cozy. It is obvious that a lot of time has been taken to decorate the rooms.
We love the cute red and blue checkerboard traditional style curtains. This site is also perfect for taking long romantic strolls through the surrounding nature, or you can even enjoy the free use of two bikes, to explore further afield.

You’ll need a car or some form of private transportation to reap the benefits of this holiday home. Suitable for up to four guests, this stop is unique, due to its special view of the Loosdrecht peaks, which can be best enjoyed on the sunny terrace. The main living space is open to the dining area, with a convenient kitchen, whilst the double bedroom is separated, as is the bathroom.

This pretty, waterside cottage has two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds in it, although the property is best suited for up to three guests. The living room is spacious and very cozy, with both oversized sofas and chairs in plush white fabric and a woven, basket style coffee table.
We also love the patio area, with seating located at the side of the property, you’ll enjoy sitting here and watching the world pass by. The kitchen has an oven, stove and refrigerator so that you can make your own meals, it is worth noting that you’ll need a car to get to and from the property and the nearest grocery store is 15 minutes away by car.
Cottage on the water
On the first floor of this property is a simple double bedroom, that includes access to a bathroom in the yoga shala on the ground floor. This happy, homely property, along with its positive vibes, makes fantastic vegetarian meals for breakfast or dinner at a small additional cost. You can enjoy your meal in the seating area outside, otherwise, there is a fantastic restaurant on the street corner.
The host is a yoga instructor so, as well as enjoying your holiday, you can also take part in some mindful yoga! Yogamar is located at the end of a street and so is very quiet, but during the summer months, you can expect a jolly atmosphere, as tourists and locals enjoy sailing on the nearby water.
This chalet is located on the beautiful shores of the Loosdrecht Plassen, from where you can take part in lots of water sports activities or keep your feet firmly on the ground and enjoy a barbecue. The chalet can play host to up to three guests, with one double bedroom and a spare mattress.
The property is decorated in a way that matches the exposed wooden beams but with modern appliances. We particularly like the tall breakfast bar in the kitchen, which is perfect for sharing meals. As we like our music, we also adore the wide variety of LPs on site and we can just picture listening to a record whilst enjoying lunch and a beer on the garden patio.
