About this listing
This apartment feels like a summer house in the city. It's great to wake up with a view at t water and the boats, have a fresh coffee on the balcony, relax after a day on the road and this at only 12 minutes away from Amsterdam Central station!
BIENVENIDOS, BIENVENUE, WILKOMMEN, WELKOM, WELCOME to this Lovely and unique waterfront apartment. A great opportunity to feel at home away from home!
A free ferry takes you from the Amsterdam Central Station, crossing the IJ-river to the lovely North of Amsterdam. The nice and quiet urban green area makes you feel relaxed right away. A seven minute walk along the riverside leads you to your Amsterdam apartment where you will enjoy a refreshing drink on the balcony watching the boats pass by and maybe even waving at a huge cruise ship leaving the dock. The cat Mitsubishi says hello and you feel right at home in Amsterdam!
The Apartment is located in the IJplein/ Vogelbuurt, a former shipbuilding area where, 30 years ago, architect Rem Koolhaas built apartments with green areas and water view for everyone. Nowadays “Amsterdam Noord” is being discovered by many artists and young entrepreneurs. Around the corner there is a big supermarket and some small local grocery stores. There are many great restaurants and cafes around like Wilhelminadok, Fish restaurant Stork, café Modern, de Goudfazant, Il Pecorino, Noorderlicht, Pllek etc. Within walking distance you find film museum EYE and the music area Tolhuistuin (with live music in the summer). The oldest urban forest is nearby and for more green and typical Dutch landscapes you only need to bike for 20 minutes (or take a local bus) to discover the polder and nature of the Waterland with nice towns like Holysloot, Marken, Durgerdam and Volendam.
The living room has a table for six, a couch and two relaxing chairs, a balcony with a hammock (optional), an open kitchen with a stove and dishwashing machine. There are two bedrooms, one with a king-size bed (with adjustable bed base), one with a queen-size bed and an optional extra single bed (a roll-out couch). Both bedrooms have water view so you wake up in the morning watching the birds and the boats sail along. The bathroom has a shower and a washing machine, there is an extra freezer, and a separate rest-room. There is free WIFI, a television with dvd-player and a radio/cd player. The apartment comes with a lovely cat, Mitsubishi, who just needs some food, drinks and a little love.
It’s a great place for a family or for 2 couples traveling together. You only need to bring your clothes and toothbrush!
Please feel free to contact me for any additional information. I would love to help you and to make sure you find a nice space to enjoy a great time in Amsterdam!
Hope to hear from you soon

This is your home away from home... A lovely cat is living with you, he needs some love and food and fresh water every day. It's a quiet neighbourhood so please take that into consideration. Just treat the apartment and surrounding with respect, as if it was your own..
