About this listing
Our family apartment is simple, light and spacious. We look out on a beautiful courtyard and wake up to the sound of birds. Yet, our home is barely a 10 minute bike ride from the centre and on walking distance from the wonderful 'Westerpark'.
You can use the bathroom, kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms (with 3 single beds) and one bedroom with a double bed. One bedroom will be closed, we'll put some of our things in there to make room for you in the closets.
Interaction with guests
When you visit us, we'll most probably be away ourselves, but you will be gracefully welcomed by my brother who lives 15 minutes away.
This neighborhood is famous for it's architectural style, known as the 'Amsterdamse School'. You can have a guided tour through the neighborhood (!) and visit 'Het `Schip', an iconic building for the Amsterdamse Stijl, which is now in use as a museum.
Westerpark is at walking distance. The park is famous for it's many cultural events, clubs, restaurants and bars.
At 5 minutes from the Park is the Haarlemmerdijk, which in 2012 was proclaimed best shoppingstreet of the Netherlands (and since then, it has only improved).
Our house can be easily reached by bus from the Central Station, bus lines 22 and 48 (hop off at Oostzaanstraat) will get you here in 10 minutes. If you come by car we can instruct you on where to park your car. We wouldn't advice to take your car into town. It is too expensive to park and it takes too much time. Furthermore, it is so much nicer to walk or bike through the city!
Our home is comfortable and user friendly. 'Don't touch' does not apply.
We expect you to live in our house as if it was your own. Under the principle 'mi casa es su casa': you keep it clean and fresh. No smoking inside and (in principle) no pets.
