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.

Wonderful place, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem of place, located on a lovely block in the museum district. The owner and Barbara, the building manager, have created a kind of magical space for a short or even extended stay. We loved it and look forward to returning when we can.

Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Dear Barbara,

Our trip to Amsterdam was outstanding! The apartment is truly a gem. Beautifully maintained, impeccably clean and so warm and comfortable. After spending long days revisiting and discovering the joys of Amsterdam, walking through the front door felt like coming home! We loved living in the neighborhood, stately, quiet, yet just steps to fabulous outdoor cafes, trendy shops and grocery stores..

Barbara, thank you for your warm welcome and for your many offers of support throughout our stay. You made the booking, arrival and sadly departure a seamless and enjoyable process. We are looking forward to returning next year.

Best Regards,

Deborah and Alfred

Beautiful apartment, wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to book a 3 night stay in Amsterdam and rather than booking a hotel we decided to book this apartment instead. We are so glad we did! This apartment is simply stunning with everything you could possibly need. The surrounding area is beautiful with Vondelpark only a short walk away. The apartment is a 2 min walk from a Tram stop which gives perfect access to the city and Central Station. Barbara, the property manager, was so accommodating and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Lovely neighborhood with vocal birds

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the lovely Amsterdam apartment was charming. We had a plethora of restaurants within a block, not to mention the varied shops, bakeries and traiteurs.

We walked to the museums in fifteen minutes and had the public transport at our door when we didn't want to walk. The apartment is well maintained and provisioned. Thanks to Barbara and Meeno for a lovely stay. Cannot wait to come back to the Netherlands.
