The space

Authentic 17C Waterfront Canal Villa.
Stay in the ambience of Holland's Golden Age and live like a 17th century aristocrat at Amsterdam Canal Villa.
The villa is located just around the corner from a working windmill. This luxurious, beautifully preserved and in 2017 renovated villa was built in 1624 by a Dutch East Indies captain to house his family while he was at sea. It is centrally located, a mere 7 minute bike ride to the heart of the city. Parking is free! The home is quiet, quaint and authentic, boasting all the amenities of the 21st century. It has original beams and a mantle piece. It is furnished with antiques and has original artwork on the walls and sculptures in the rooms. Your comfortable bedroom has WiFi, a private bathroom with rain shower, a toilet bidet, a 2nd 1/2 bathroom and a sunny patio. There is a spacious lounge area with kitchenette, microwave, coffeemaker, electric kettle, toaster, washing machine and fridge. Coffee, tea, fruit, milk and muesli are available.

Hosts (MD and therapist) are well traveled and friendly. Together they speak 5 languages. A brand new public swimming pool with open access café and patio is located across the street. Facing your home is a large public park offering open-air performances in the summer. You can actually swim in the canal! Bike routes abound. Golf lovers have facilities nearby. The local grocery store is a short walk from your lodgings and there is an open-air market in the neighborhood. Buses and taxis are close by.

Our neighborhood, Buiksloot, was originally a separate village that was incorporated into Amsterdam in 1911. Now part of trendy Amsterdam-North, this section of town boasts hip restaurants, cafes, the NDSM cultural hotspot and the new Eye Film Museum/Art Film House, which overlooks the harbor. Dine there while enjoying views of the Amsterdam skyline.
Amsterdam 17C Canal Villa is one of a kind. It is a designated national landmark.

Museums: Van Gogh and Rembrandt at your service; canal boat rides, windmills, tulip fields, theater, restaurants, cafes, bike paths, festivals, swimming, golf, fitness. Amsterdam has something for everyone! Live like a 17th century aristocrat at Amsterdam Canal Villa.
Interaction with guests: as much or as little as you like!
Our safe and scenic 17th century village waterfront neighborhood is a mere seven minutes by bike from downtown Amsterdam. It is the perfect combination of city and country, historic architecture and trendy, state-of-the-art hotspots!

This was a lovely setting in a quiet neighborhood just north of the hustle and bustle of downtown Amsterdam. While we did not meet the owners who were out of town, their house cleaner greeted us and provided all the necessary information for our stay. The only issue we had was …

Response from Janet:
Dear Cris, I am sorry we did not get to meet you. As I wrote you, we immediately had an extermination company come in and inspect the premises. They did not find a single bedbug or any other infestation. I anonymously showed them the picture you sent us of the two bites on your arm. They said they are most probably mosquito bites. My husband, who is an MD agrees. Happily we have never had a complaint like this before.

This little gem is a few minute bus ride from Central station and could not have been easier. There is an added plus of beautiful swimming pools 1 block away. We enjoyed our stay and would go back. Janet and Leo were wonderful.
