Interested in staying in a Canal House in the center of Amsterdam?! Then this is the place for you. Recently renovated into a spacious, luxurious apartment with lots of light and character!
Just a five minute walk from the Dam Square and Anne Frank

The space

Our apartment is in the centre of Amsterdam, on the fourth floor and was recently renovated/redecorated. We usually live here as well but as we are on holidays sometimes, we rent it out completely. There is one bathroom in the hallway so this is shared space (if we are home). Furthermore there is very spacious living room and kitchen that you are welcome to use.

The location in on one of the most popular, prestigious canals, Herengracht. If you want to check out the tourist attractions most of them are walking distance such as Anne Franks house about 15 minutes, The Dam Square is about 7 minutes walk, the Red Light district is about 10-15 minutes. If you don't want to walk, bike rental is available around the corner. Tram stop is 4 min walk from the apartment. By tram you can quickly get to the Van Gogh and Rijks museums and Vondelpark. Around the corner are of course the other canals, nice little streets in between with restaurants, shops, cafe's, etc.

The Herengracht is a unique location, as each canal is just beautiful and acts as a guide to all the locations you want to go. Our apartment has a convenient location and is a very 'homy' place to stay!

We are open to sharing our place with guests whom want to explore Amsterdam for a few days, or those that are here on business and prefer a convenient, peaceful place to stay. Obviously we expect guests to take care of our belongings and living standards so we prefer couples, families, business men/women, etc. Young backpacker groups (>2 persons; < age 24) are not allowed.

If you are interested, all I ask is for you to send me a message with a little something about yourself and who you are traveling with.

Public transportation and bikes are around the corner and the easiest way to get around the city. The apartment is also conveniently located from the airport as it is only a 15 min train ride to the central station and then another 10 min walk from the station, crossing canals in the process.

This is a fantastic apartment. There are three big windows that show the canal. There was not a spec of dust to be found in the apartment as it was impeccably clean. Host was so prompt in her communication, which was greatly appreciated by us. The location was great with lots of restaurants and bars near by. It was also an easy walk for us (we have a two year old and stroller) from the train station. We would love to stay here again (longer) and would definitely recommend it to our friends.

Four of us stayed at Elise's place over a sunny weekend, and we couldn't have asked for a better apartment! The place is obviously in an incredible area, with huge windows over the canal, and wonderful bedrooms. Elise made everything very easy and really made us feel welcome. The guest bedroom in particular is tailor-made for a couple to really feel at home. We'll be back. Thanks again!

Elise's home is great. It was definitely part of the experience to stay in a real canal house. It's large and comfortable, and Elise left us breakfast so that we didn't have to go out searching for us. The location is great. It's a quiet street but within easy walking distance of Central Station and the Ann Frank Huis. You can get trams nearby to go to the museum area. It was very easy. Lots of nice shops and restaurants and a great bakery nearby.

I have lived in various places around the world and love to travel. After living in several cities in Holland, I have lived happily in Amsterdam since 2011.

Amsterdam is an amazing city to live in as energy and excitement is on-going. My boyfriend and I live together and our apartment is ideally located for anyone wanting to visit our city so we enjoy sharing it from time to time. We both have travelled to various places around the world so we know what travellers expect during their stay.
