Close to tourist attractions, museums, and public transportation.The address of the apartment is PRINSENGRACHT 728; between Vijzelstraat and Reguliersgracht. A safe upper-class neighbourhood in the very heart of the Golden Age Amsterdam. All the things you like to visit are on walking distance. The prinsengracht-canal is part of the Seventeenth-century canal ring of Amsterdam that has been put on the World Heritage List since 2010.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1964

About the owner: We as a family live in the upper part of the house and we use our own front door. We rent the apartment for over 20 years and a lot of guests return over and over. Liesbeth spent her childhood in the house and our children already left for their studies and independed life. My husband is working in a hospital as a pediatric surgeon and I am a retired Montessori teacher. Our 3 children are bussy with their study in Amsterdam. We lived in new York while my husband was working as a childrens oncologist.We like to share our house with people from other countries.We use VRBO often our selves and think that it is very nice to live like locals in different places in the world.

Why the Owner Chose Grachtengordel, Amsterdam, Netherlands:
In august we have the gay parade in front of our house, on Kings- day (april 27) the free market is all around us, In winter time you can skate on the canal in front. The garden is an extra area to sit, drink, smoke and eat in summer time. The bread specialist is around the corner, the flee-market and daily market are on walking distance........and so on, please see by yourself.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Most guests love to live like a 'local' This part of the city is one of the most friendly and beautiful ones. boats passing by, cafee's with people sitting outside enjoying the sun. The houses on this canal make you feel like walking around in a museum. IN THE SUMMER MONTHS I PREFER TO BOOK PER WEEK (S)
