The space

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.

The neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Great location in the center of Utrecht. Close to everything you'd like to do in the city. Walkable to the train station for connections to Amsterdam and other Dutch cities. Bus stop at the corner. Super spacious living room and bedroom. Very comfortable bedding and decent bathroom accommodations. Kitchen has all you need including gas stove, fridge, and coffee maker. Walking distance to restaurants, clubs, groceries, markets, and tourist stops. I loved staying here and will be back in the future. Thanks for everything, Yolanda and Ahmet.

We love the great location and the view, you really get a great feel of the city being on the canal and the apartment has everything you need for your break away. It's always so clean and tidy and Jolanda leaves handy guides for those times you you want to venture out and explore the city. This is our second visit at Jolanda's and it wont be our last!

We loved our stay at Jolanda and Ahmet's flat. It is a beautiful space. We particularly liked the big windows looking over the canal. The location was also perfect. Would highly recommend staying here!

Jolanda & Ahmet User ProfileJolanda & Ahmet is a superhost.

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!
