About this listing
My apartment is light and cosy.
The three bedrooms are on the second floor, one main bedroom (bed 160x200) and two children bedrooms (bed 90x200).
On the third floor you'll be surprised to come into a sea of light with an open kitchen (incl. dishwasher, microwave, oven, washing machine) with a dining table (6) and sitting area with TV and music (and Wifi). Wooden floor. Doors to rooftop terrace with bamboo plants and flowers. Sun on terrace from dawn till about 18.00 hrs.
No noise from the street, other than now and then a car looking for a parking place and neighbours walking by.
Bathroom with toilet, shower and bath. Because of the stairs (two-three) not really suitable for smaller children.
The neighbourhood is friendly and safe. With a lot of restaurants, shops and terraces (near the waterfront of the Schinkel) and close to the Vondelpark - Gent aan de Schinkel for breakfast, lunch, dinner - Blauwe Theehuis for lunch - Vondeltuin for a nice salad and fingerfood in the outdoors - Anne & Max for great coffee - etc.etc. Enjoy the Vondelpark for a walk and a drink or go there for a run. Lots of food to take-away around the corner.
Supermarket DEEN is very convenient and is also around the corner, open on Sundays 12-18 also.
Tram 2 leaves at Westlandgracht (5 mnts walk) and brings you to the center of Amsterdam (20 mnts) with its musea, concerthall and theatres.
To reach my apartment from Schiphol, take the train (6 every hour) to Amsterdam Lelylaan (7 mnts) and from there take a cab (10 euro). Or you can take the train from Schiphol to trainstation Amsterdam Zuid and catch bus 15.
Amsterdam and its surroundings are best explored by bicycle (there is one bike available for you). The Nieuwe Meer (for a swim) and the Amsterdamse Bos are nearby, take the route along the Schinkel.
To go to the beach, it will take you 45 mnts by train (every hour two trains leave for Zandvoort).
Parking your car in Amsterdam is quite expensive, the best way to come is by public transport.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any more inquieries. Cheerio, Nienke
The entire house is a NON-smoking area.
