Overview

About the property

Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh + Stedelijk Museum and the Canals are a minutes walk away

Elegant first floor apartment behind the Concertgebouw and just south of the Vondelpark. Sleeps two but on request 1 additional guests can stay in the attic at a special extra rate. Contact us for more information as this room is not always available.

This apartment is located on the principal floor of a townhouse of 1900 in the residential district known as the Museumkwartier (the Museumquarter).

The hall and staircase are typical of a house of this period, with marble floors and a staircase leading, via a small mezzanine, to the front door of the apartment, which has its own entrance hall opening into the main room and the bedroom.

The main room, furnished with antiques, is a combination of sitting room, dining room and kitchen, has high ceilings, a polished parquet floor, and wide, white-curtained windows facing south with views into the small square at the southern end of Cornelis Schuytstraat, a fashionable shopping street currently much in favour.

The bedroom, with the same polished floor, high ceiling and wide, white-curtained windows, overlooks the private gardens and the white-painted balconies at the backs of the houses opposite. The queensize bed is very comfortable.

The tree-lined street is a quiet one, carrying little traffic, and yet because of the proximity of the Cornelis Schuytstraat there is plenty of life to be watched from the windows.

The city’s main park, the Vondelpark, is a five minute walk away and can be part of a walking route into the city centre. As the Concertgebouw, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and van Gogh museum are just a few minutes walk away.

The neighbourhood has everything one might need or desire for making oneself comfortably ‘at home’. In addition to the fashion shops, there’s a good general grocer, a greengrocer, two bakeries, the butcher van Dam on the corner - so well known that people come here from all over the city - two dry-cleaners, a chemist, a bookshop, and cafes.

Within a very few minutes’ walk are several restaurants, an Italian delicatessen, a laundry, and a bicycle hire shop. Every Saturday, on the next little square in the street there’s a produce market of singular quality, run by a consortium of local inhabitants.

Public transport connections are very good. There is a direct bus to Schiphol airport, or if coming from the airport by train it is one stop to the Amsterdam Zuid station. Two nearby trams, number 2 and 16 go to the Centraal Station. The number 16 via the Concertgebouw, the Albert Cuyp street market, and the Dam Square (with the Royal Palace and Amsterdam’s best department store, de Bijenkorf), and the number 2 via the Van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum, the theatre and cinema area in and near the Leidseplein, the Canalbelt, the Spui, and the Amsterdam Museum, the museum on Amsterdam's history.

General notes:

We have made you a hand-out with all possible house instructions and lovely tips to ensure you will enjoy your stay in Amsterdam.

There is a hair-drier in the bathroom. And there is a laundry nearby should you require washing or clothes to be pressed.

The kitchen is equipped for cooking, and has a Nespresso machine, kettle, toaster, microwave and juicer.

There are so many restaurants and cafes in the immediate neighbourhood that it is not necessary to list them. Walk out of the house in any direction and you’ll find places to eat within a very few hundred metres.

This is a non-smoking house. The apartment is not to be used by people using drugs, having parties or pets, and is unsuitable for children under the age of 6. Small babies are welcome if you bring your own carry cot.

Charming, quiet, close to trams and attractions

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described, we found this accommodation to be perfectly located for everyone's needs. Quiet for sleeping yet close enough to walk to trams and head off to Amsterdam's adventures. Both the agent and the owner were friendly, accommodating and welcoming to us as we enjoyed their hospitality for a week.

Beautiful comfortable apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was an excellent place to stay- very comfortable, very clean and furnished to a high standard. The location is excellent too, close to shops, restaurants and museums, as well as tram stops for easy access to the rest of the city. The area is extremely nice, interesting and peaceful, with high quality food shops yards from the front door, and a Saturday food market just down the street. Barbara was very helpful and friendly.

Fabulous rental!

  • 5 of 5

The flat is exactly as described and the photos are accurate. The location was absolutely wonderful. My sister and I felt safe, and comfy! Most of all, the property manger (Barbara) was so fantastic...she was responsive when we had questions prior to arrival, she was thorough in detailing everything when we arrived, and best of all, she helped us tremendously when we had an emergency. The entire time it felt like we were dealing with a friend. We highly recommend this rental and cannot thank Barbara enough!

Great Spot, fantastic apartment, near museums, restaurants!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the apartment for a long weekend, the place is equipped with everything, toiletries, hair dryer, towels, all necessary kitchen items, netpresso machine, great for a couple, really comfy bed, super cool round tiled shower/wet room.

Located in a really nice upscale neighborhood with tons of restaurants and shops, small supermarket right in the corner for all essentials you might need. Walking distance to museums, canal tours, "tourist attractions" if you would prefer. Barbara who manages the apartment was great, she gave us a thorough briefing of the area and where to go. Apartment has tons of Amsterdam maps and tour books to go through or borrow for your visit. Also a large bookcase full of variety of books just in case you hit a rainy day or just would like a break from touring. TV has all EU stations, CNN, BBC etc. Wifi works great. Slight drawback but don't let it discourage you, you will need to go up a set of stairs to 1st floor, bottom floor is 0. Thanks for a great stay, would rent again!

Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

So what do you want when you rent a place in a foreign land? #1 - Clean - CHECK. Very clean. #2 Friendly and Informative Welcome - CHECK - Barbara welcomed us early in the day as the apartment was open and our flight got in early. #3. Well stocked. CHECK. Just enough coffee, tea to get started. Well stocked kitchen for cooking. #4 - Comfortable -- CHECK - The bed was incredible and the place so quiet that we slept deeply and sometimes too long. But quiet. #5 - nice place with interesting things to look at. CHECK. Lovely antique furniture but not so fancy that you felt you couldn't touch anything. Interesting books and photos. #5 - Light!!! The windows were large and the morning greeted us with wonderful sunlight as we enjoyed coffee. #6 - Location CHECK. Well if you don't care about being on a canal. Tram stop steps away. More than enough good restaurants. Peaceful neighborhood. Vondelpark an easy walk as were museums -- but we mostly took our favorite Tram 2 to save our legs for touristy things. Truly could not have been better. Thank you Barbara and Menno
