About this listing
Romantic and luxurious ground floor appartment with 3 bedrooms, huge living room gourmet kitchen, bathroom and small garden. Quiet location nearby the river 'Amstel', within walking distance from great city trips and bars/restaurants, close to public transportation. The perfect spot for a nice getaway in Amsterdam! Enjoy!!
This ground floor appartment, build in 1932, was a tobacco store in the earlier days. The house therefore is still very spacious and light; with huge windows and high ceilings (3.20meters). The house was newly renovated in June 2015 with a brandnew gourmet kitchen, bathroom, toilet and wooden/Oak floor.
It now offers you all the luxury you would want for your getaway while you can still enjoy the authentic Amsterdam feeling.
The 112m2 house offers you a spacious dining room with kitchen and a cosy living room. A small garden, with sun from noon until 4pm and almost no wind due to the positioning of the garden.
The sleeping area of the house is well separated from the living area, which makes it possible for a child (or your partner ;-)) to sleep while you are enjoying a glass of great wine in the living room. The sleeping area offers you 3 bedrooms (one master bedroom with kingsize bed, one baby room (with cot until 1.5/2yrs old) and one extra room with a comfortable sleeping couch for one person).
In case you need an extra bed (4th), please note our comfortable sleeping couch in the living room.
In the sleeping area, you will also find a toilet and a bathroom with a 2 person bathtub and a big shower.
The house is the perfect base to relax and regain your energy after a day or night of exciting Amsterdam!

Interaction with guests
Bas and me are always available via text and Phone. Several friends and neighbours are willing to help in case you need it.
The impressive river 'de Amstel' is just at the end of the street. A gorgeous stroll alongside the river towards the trending and energetic area 'De Pijp' or the city centre shows you Amsterdam at her best!
Both restaurants and bars are within walking distance from the house. We will tell you which ones to visit to experience the real Dutch experience, and not the touristy one! :-) If you want to, we can help you with your reservations. Both higher end restaurants as informal places to eat are just around the corner.
A ten minute walk towards a big supermarket with anything you need: Albert Heijn.
The neighborhood is quiet. Sometimes on Friday and Saturday nights you will hear some noice of people walking towards the train station around 11pm/midnight. But it has never really bothered us.
- Metrostation 'wibautstraat' is a 6minutes walk. From here it takes 5 minutes To city centre stops (Nieuwmarkt or Waterlooplein)
and 5 minutes to Amsterdam Central Station
- Train station Amstel is a 7minutes walk. Great connections to other cities as Utrecht, Rotterdam, The Hague. Airport Schiphol is just 20 minutes by train, 10 times per hour! The beach 'Zandvoort aan Zee' takes you 30minutes from Amsterdam Central station.
We love our house and take good care of it, we just renovated it; that's why we ask you to love our house and you will have a great time in Amsterdam!
- no smoking & drugs
- no other guests allowed but the guests mentioned in the booking
- please consider our neighbours: no loud music in the house, and no music in the garden
Hi fellow traveler!
We are Bas and Mirte, around 30 yrs old and we live in Amsterdam. We live here with our little baby girl Lilly, born in May 2015.
Our motto for life is work hard, play hard: Mirte is a marketing manager in FMCG and Bas is account manager in the rail and infrastructure industry. Enough about work; we both love to travel, far away or closeby, our last vacation was to Cuba in December '14. Bas loves paragliding and visits the beach and dunes at least once a week to fly; even more he loves paragliding in the Alps, so if he's not enjoying Amsterdam; chances are you'll find him in Austria. I myself love cooking, running (great combination ;-)), shopping and reading. And I hate how boring my life looks compared to Bas' ;-).
Oh and we do have other things in common, we both love watching movies and series!
We bought our house in March '15. With an extensive renovation (in both time and euro's) we turned it into our perfect little Amsterdam-palace and we treat it with care. We will take good care of your house, and expect you to do the same with ours.
