About this listing

We would like to welcome you in Casa Dede, at the second floor of a monumental building along the Oudegracht, the ‘old canal’, in Utrecht.

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. In the bedroom we can also place a third bed for another adult or a child.

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 canals in Utrecht are very special and famous for their wharves, which are turned into restaurants, shops and yogastudio’s. 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, museums, shops in the pedestrian area, supermarkets and organic shops, a massage parlor, theatres, cinemas, cafés, nightlife and business centres like De Jaarbeurs. You absolutely have to walk on the wharves and look at all the small figurines beneath the lampposts, that tell you something about the area. Climb the Dom, visit the cloister and see after dark how Trajectum Lumen gives places in the centre a whole new light!
Central Station and busstop near
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 mn 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!
Please no smoking in the house, and no pets. There are no pets in the house. We would like you to respect the quiet in the neighbourhood at night and not to throw big parties. And 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!
