Property description

Apartment ideal for a family of 4/5.
I have an official short stay licence issued by the Amsterdam municipality.
The apartment is located in the back of a historic Canal House. It is the perfect place to relax after a busy day in town. The modern loft apartment measures 215 sqm and can accommodate up to 6 guests. It has three bedrooms, two badrooms and a library/study corner (on the lower level) and a large open living/dining space with high ceilings and huge windows overlooking the garden, an open plan kitchen with diner on the upper level. With the apartment comes a private, secluded garden with day bed, table and chairs. There is an extra room downstairs with washer and dryer.
Due to the open plan space, the apartment is less suitable for small children.
As the apartment is below streetlevel, the downstairs bathrooms are equiped with pumps. These make some sound when used.

Master Bedroom (King size bed 210x180, windows on 'vide')
Walk-through closet
Large Bathroom with bath, double sink, separate shower, toilet
Bedroom 2, double bed 200x160, windows on garden
Bedroom 3, two beds (80x90), windows on garden
Small bathroom (sink, shower, toilet)
Extra room with washer/dryer/ironing board
Open Kitchen with diner for 6 (oven, stove, dishwasher, N espresso coffeemaker, etc)
Large open living, with two couches, flat screen, large windows giving on garden, dining area for up to 12 p.
Separate hall and bathroom.

As the property is my private home, I always ask for some background information of the guest(s), like where are you from, what do you do for a living, who are your travelling with.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: I've loved Amsterdam ever since I moved there 30 years ago, and look forward to welcoming you and help you make the best of your stay. I have travelled a lot and know what makes a homestay worthwhile. As my children (24 and 22) have left home to study, I now have the opportunity to offer my apartment for rent. I work for an ICT Multinational and study Arts & Culture. I like contemporary art of which you will find a lot in the apartment. And I cannot live without books so you will be surrounded by plenty of those too.

Why the Owner Chose De 9 Straatjes, Amsterdam, Netherlands:
Check for reviews and additional photo's Once you see the apartment you'll understand why I still love it since we bought it 26 years ago! It has the best of both worlds: whilst in the middle of Amsterdam the place is very tranquil. The loft style apartment offers plenty of space; ceilings reach 6 meters nhigh. You'll find quiet, space and plenty of green in the garden. The popular nine streets area is around the corner. You can walk (or cycle) to all major attractions. And as you step out of the historic front door you'll smile when you see the beautiful Herengracht canal.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The space, the height of the ceilings, the open living space with it's overcrossing 'bridge', the huge windows and the quiet garden! On top of that: location, location, location.
