===========================================


This Amsterdam canal apartment is located on the bottom two floors: the “souterrain” floor and the “beletage” (piano nobile) floor. These two floors are connected with an interior staircase. One enters the Snug Sonnenberg apartment on the souterrain, which is a semi-lowered (half below and half above street-level) ground floor. The beletage floor is half a floor above streetlevel and has a 3.5 meter high ceiling, with 2.5 meter high canal view windows running the width of the building.

Upon entering the souterrain the massive beams that support the beletage are quite impressive. This floor has an open kitchen with dining area, as well as a very comfortable sofa that is also a double bed when folded out. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern comforts and the dining table can easily seat six persons. In the back of this floor there is a separate bedroom with vanity sink. The beams in combination with antique floor tiles and the stone walls give this space a very warm and comfortable atmosphere. With ample heating present, the smells from the kitchen and friends swapping stories at the table, this is typically what the Dutch will call “gezellig”. The word “gezellig” is considered to be an example of untranslatability, and is one of the hardest words to translate. Some consider the word to encompass the heart of Dutch culture.

On this floor there is a staircase leading to the beletage, this floor has high ceilings and large windows overlooking the Herengracht canal. Opening the windows one can sit on the window stills or window bench and overlook this beautiful canal with all its historic houses running along its sides. There is a seating area in the front (canal side) of this floor with an ornamental antique heater. The large sofa can be converted into a double bed. In the back of the floor there is a full bathroom with sink, toilet and shower cabin. This floor also has a door that leads to the upstairs Grand Sonnenberg apartment, it is only unlocked when both apartments are rented by the same guests.

Location description

The Sonnenberg is located in the canal belt in the part known in Amsterdam as the “nine streets” area. The nine streets area is well known for its plentiful boutique shops, many restaurants, and its beautiful canals. This area is comprised of nine narrow streets running perpendicular with the four major canals (Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht) of the canal belt. It is distinctly different from other shopping districts as there is a large diversity of privately owned shops and specialized shops.

Car: Not Necessary

This apartment is located on the most beautiful part of the Herengracht Canal within the Nine-Streets area. Within 400 meters of the apartment you can find many shops and restaurants. The shops are all of a boutique type, so no usual suspects in this area. The restaurants vary from good value student restaurants to top of the bill, and from Tibetan cuisine to soul food, from breakfast to deli take outs.

For children and adults of all ages there is a playground in the direct area, with climbing racks, swings. Must see Museums within about 15-20 minutes walking/tram include; Anne Frank house, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam Historical Museum and Canal House Museum. But there are at least 30 or 40 other museums nearby that are also worth visiting.

Without writing down an entire guide to the city of Amsterdam, this location will give you an excellent base to discover the many aspects of this world famous cosmopolitan city.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: I grew up in the hospitality business, with my parents running hotels and/or restaurants. Since 2005 I have been actively offering short stay apartment rentals in Amsterdam. In 2008 I purchased the Sonnenberg and have been managing the property ever since. I love to share my experience of the wonderful city of Amsterdam. In my opinion the best way to see the city is with friends on an open canal boat on a nice day or evening. My properties all have short stay permits and I operate them as a registered business with the Chamber of Commerce, properly paying taxes both VAT and city tax. This ensures you will not wake up early in the morning to government workers dropping by to check on illegal activities.

Why Amsterdam:
The location is one of the most central in the city, and on top of that the property catches some great sun in the afternoon and is located on the most beautiful part of the most beautiful canal of the city.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
- location - view - afternoon sun - character of the building itself
