About this listing
Wonderful big and quiet apartment in a renovated monumental building along the famous old canal. Relax on the couch and enjoy the nice view on water, boats and trees. You are in the heart of Utrecht. Sights, shops, transport: just around the corner!
We would like to welcome you in Casa Dede, our wonderful apartment at the first floor of a monumental building along the Oudegracht, the ‘old canal’ in Utrecht.
The comfortably furnished apartment (89m2) has a spacious living room, a big bedroom, a kitchen with full kitchenware and a bathroom with shower, washstand and toilet. The facilities include central heating, a fan, a gas stove, microwave oven, refrigerator, kettle, toaster, fresh-bean coffee machine, washing machine, iron, hairdryer, big flat screen and blu-ray player. After a busy day in the city you can relax on our couch or on a very special rocking chair. The living room is big enough to also hold small business meetings. The bedroom has a king size bed which can also be separated into two singles; the couch can be turned into a very comfortable double bed so four persons can stay in the apartment.
Bedlinen and towels will be provided. Of course there is wifi.
The apartment is recently renovated.
Interaction with Guests
You will have the apartment all to yourself. We provide you with maps and lots of information about where to go and what to do. If you need us, you can always contact us.
Everything is around the corner!
The canals in Utrecht are very special and famous for their wharves, which are turned into restaurants, shops and yogastudio’s, and also for the small stone figurines under all the lamp posts. In Casa Dede, you are in the heart of the city centre and everything is literally around the corner: the main sights, trips on the water, musea, shops in the pedestrian area, supermarkets and organic shops, a massage parlor, theatres, cinemas, cafés, nightlife and business centres like De Jaarbeurs. Climb the Dom, visit the cloister and see after dark how Trajectum Lumen gives places in the centre a whole new light.
The central station is only at a walking distance of 10 minutes. From there you can reach the rest of Holland in short daytrips by train. There is a bus stop around the corner (Neude) and from there the University centre Uithof, the botanical garden and the surrounding villages are within an easy reach. The nearest paid parking is La Vie; sometimes you can find a place on the gracht. And if you want to rent a bicycle, that’s pretty easy in our neighbourhood. We will gladly help you with your plans and activities.
Other Things to Note
If you might want to stay with a bigger party, we also have another apartment in the same building > see our profile.
At 5 minutes walking distance, we have a lovely Mediterranean restaurant with honest food and delicious fish, where we'd like to receive you with a good glass of wine when you come for dinner.
Please no smoking in the house and no pets. There are no pets in the apartment. We would like you to respect the quiet in the neighbourhood at night and not to throw big parties. We appreciate your cooperation in keeping the house as clean as possible. Thanks!
Jolanda & Ahmet like to travel and meet people from various countries. We work in culture and food & beverage. Ahmet has his own restaurants; he just opened the modern Tafel aan de Gracht in a very typical Utrecht wharf cellar! Food in Mediterranean style is our absolute favorite, with fish prepared in a natural way as the supreme dish. We like to travel to Turkey, Morocco, Brazil and France. The lovely cat on my shoulder lives in Istanbul. Work or leisure time, we enjoy life!
