Our cozy apartment is perfect for couples, a small family or group of friends. Situated in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood overlooking Erasmus park, with easy access to public transport, you are just 10 minutes from the center of Amsterdam. Relax and enjoy!
Our apartment is located on the corner of a beautiful canal overlooking the Erasmus park. In front of the door is a large playground with a small urban farm, so you wake up each morning to the beautiful view, complete with sheep eating grass below our little balcony.
There is a large living room / dining room, with big windows facing west you can enjoy the long summer evenings and sunsets across the water and park.
The master bedroom overlooks a communal garden behind our building, you will see the sun rising behind the tall trees that line the water next to our home. There is a queen sized bed and the possibility of a small child's bed / crib.
The small galley-style kitchen has everything you need to prepare home-cooked meals.
On the other side of the kitchen is a small office; with a very comfortable full-sized mattress so the office can be used as a second bedroom. Please note that in the office there is not a bed frame, only a mattress (but it is very comfortable.) The mattress fills up the whole floor, but during the day you can stand it up against the wall if you wish to use the office or have more space.
The apartment can comfortably fit three guests; a small family, or a couple and a friend. There are two beds (one queen and one double)
There are a few 'rustic' things you should know about; this is an old apartment, built in the 1920's and although it is cozy, it is not especially modern;
- We don't have a bathtub, but there is a small shower with good water pressure and a 'rain-shower' that is entered via the main bedroom.
- The water closet / toilet is VERY SMALL (Amsterdam-style) but it is located in a little separate room so it is easy for everyone to access.
- We don't have a television, but we have good WIFI.
- We don't have a clothes-washing machine, but there is a very friendly launderette just 3 minutes walk from the apartment, so it is easy and affordable to have your laundry done while you are exploring the city.
We would not describe our apartment as 'luxury', but rather as 'cozy' - it is a very comfortable base from which to explore the city. We love living here, and we think you will enjoy it too - the neighborhood is great, and you really can't beat the view. So if you are someone who enjoys a down-to-earth family home then we hope you will be our guests - Welcome!
You have access to the whole apartment; living room/dining room, kitchen, bedroom, office / guest room, shower, bathroom, front and back balconies. There are sheets and towels, and a full kitchen with lots of spices, tea, and coffee for you!
If we are staying in town you can contact us by phone in case you have questions or problems, and if we are traveling during your stay then our friend who lives in the neighborhood will serve as your contact/host, so it is always easy to pick up keys, ask questions, etc.
We ask that you kindly water the plants... Especially on warm summer days.
If you are traveling with small kids let us know and we can leave out some toys, books, etc.
Our apartment is strictly non-smoking. We have two nice balconies, on the east and west facing sides of the apartment, smoking is only possible on the balcony with all doors and windows closed.
Our neighbors are very kind, but they are elderly, and we try to keep the noise level low in the evenings. If you are looking for an apartment where you can host a party, or play loud music, we ask you to find another location.
No pets allowed.
I am based in Amsterdam. I work for designers and artists as a freelance project manager, so often need to travel for work to set-up/take-down exhibitions. Airbnb is my go-to for affordable travel and we are now happy to offer our apartment on Airbnb as well. Currently, I am traveling with my husband and son.
