Our family home (160 m2) is located on one of the most beautiful canals of Amsterdam. Right in the city center opposite a park and near the zoo. The house is perfect for families, has two sunny roof terraces and easy access to all of Amsterdam.

The space

Our house is laid out on three floors. On the first floor you'll find the green livingroom with a beautiful view across the canal and the park, a kitchen with dining table and access to our roof terrace. It enjoys a lot of sun from the early afternoon into the evening and is a great place to have a drink or a meal.
On the second floor you'll find the master bedroom with a large double bed and a large bathroom with bath and shower. On the third floor are two children bedrooms. The 'girls' room' with a double bed and the 'boys' room' with a single high bed and one double bed. Also there's a small bathroom with a shower. The girls' room gives access to another roof terrace.
We are a family of four, our house is very suited for a family and you can easily stay with 6 persons. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal, there are lots of games to play, records to listen to and books to browse and read. Because our street is so calm and quiet, the house really is a great place to relax in after visiting the city all day.

Guest access

Guests have access to all but one room. That's where we keep our musical instruments. The other 150 m2 is all for you.

Interaction with guests

We rent out our place when we are away on vacation ourselves, so there's little interaction with our guests. We do like to get to know them and have family and friends around if there are any questions.

Other things to note

Because this is our family home we only rent it out to families and sometimes to other people with reviews that can give us some background information. Please send us the full names and ages of all people who will be staying before you make a reservation and please note we are not able to take reservations from groups of young people coming to party in Amsterdam. Also we are unable to accept reservations for groups larger than 6 persons.

I would highly recommand Christien's house. It is ideally located, close to the center (15 min walk) and to the Botanical gardens, with view on the canal from the living room. The house is beautifully decorated and there is plenty of place, and two calm terraces :) Christien was really nice and flexible, and she gave us a lot of useful tips about the area. Everyone was really happy.

Great place, great host. Really nice spot on the canal, close to the action. Great back terrace and a great kitchen for preparing meals. Really enjoyed our stay

Christien could not greet us at the apartment (our fault, as we ended up arriving very late) but had a very lovely and helpful friend there to meet us, who checked several times during our stay to make sure we were happy. We (a family of 5 with 3 children under 10) loved the apartment - it was in an amazing location, we walked to most of the places we wanted to visit and loved living on the canal - for the kids it was excellent to have toys and games to play with, and for the adults the fully stocked kitchen and terrace were wonderful. It was an incredibly relaxing place to be, and we were tempted to stay!

Our experience in this place was altogether Great. The location could not be better, especially for a group that included two children (ages 8 and 10). The house is close to the sights that most appealed to the children (Nemo science museum, zoo, etc.). At the same time, grown-ups could enjoy the proximity to Amsterdam Central Station, cafes, and supermarkets . It was easy to take care of shopping and cooking and other practical chores. The house itself is comfortable and quiet. The view from the front window gives you an unforgettable panorama of life on the busy waterways of Amsterdam; the view from the back deck gives you a sense of the neighborhood. Our questions were answered promptly and helpfully by Christien and a close friend who assists her on such matters. I feel we were very fortunate to spend our week in Amsterdam in such a welcoming setting.

Christien's home is perfect in that it's in the city center but residential enough to not feel too touristy. An easy walk to the tram, metro, bus, and lots of bars/restaurants/attractions. I wish we had more time! Would definitely recommend for others.

We loved our stay in Christien's house. It is a comfortable and spacious home, and easily accommodated the six of us. Christien was amazingly communicative, and even accommodated our earlier than planned arrival. The location is awesome--close to neighborhood restaurants and bars, and right on a scenic canal. It's also super close to a tram and train, and is an easy walk away from other key areas of Amsterdam. We all had a great time, and would definitely stay again!

We are a journalist and a musician and have two kids. Our house is warm and filled with a lot of music and a lot of books. One of us wrote a guide to this area, so knows a lot about it. We'll be happy to give you tips and advice
