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.

This was my second time staying at this property and I was equally as impressed as I was after my first visit. Barbara and Menno are organized, informative, and their response time is great. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet. The apartment is clean and beautiful. My family and I can't imagine staying anywhere else during our trips to Amsterdam, and we always looking forward to coming back!

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect - within walking distance of the museums and tram stop and yet the neighborhood was SO quiet. Upscale cafes and restaurants in the neighborhood. The apartment does not have AC and it was unusually hot when we were there, but there are large windows and we were given a fan, so it wasn't uncomfortable. Very nice, spacious apartment with high ceilings. The owner met us and was so helpful with some useful tips for getting around. I just couldn't get over how peaceful and quiet the neighborhood was - it was like an oasis and yet the museums were just a short walk away. We would definitely stay there again!

Elegant and Quiet with a View

  • 5 of 5

Lovely elegant apartment on a gorgeous tree-lined street just three blocks from the concert house and a short walk to the major museum’s. Also located between two tram stops, we made use of our commuter cards to journey around the city, always delighted to come home to peace and quiet. There are excellent restaurants within a block or two of the apartment as well as interesting shops, grocery stores and pharmacies. We would eagerly go back.

A charming haven close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay in your flat. Our schedule in the Amsterdam was quite busy so we were very please to have such a lovely and quiet place to return to in the evenings. The area is so convenient with good grocery stores, cafes and restaurants just around the corner. The bus/tram connections are also ideal. We were even able to rent bikes at a nearby hotels. As we have to return to Amsterdam again, we would definitely like to stay here again if the flat is available.

Great place in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This well-appointed apartment was perfect for us. It had an open floor plan with a good kitchen together with the dining table and living room. We rented the upstairs bedroom and bath which worked out well for the 3 of us. Having a washer was particularly handy as we were continuing on to other places. The apartment is located in an upscale neighborhood with many restaurants and shops and the trams stopping around the corner. Our solution to dinner on two occasions was to have excellent take-out from gourmet stores within one block of our apartment, then heated the items up in the kitchen. We couldn't resist the neighborhood pastry and coffee shop for breakfast and the ice cream store across the little park. We appreciated Barbara's being so helpful right from the start both before we arrived and answering our questions after we got there. All in all, we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this property and would love the opportunity to return. .
