About this listing

Our house is an old and very charming townhouse that is lightly and tastefully decorated. It is located in The Jordaan, the most authentic and popular neighbourhood of Amsterdam, and is at walking or cycling distance from all the highlights.

The space

WE ARE OFFERING:
- two story apartment with sunny balcony
- clean sheets and towels
- flexible check-in and check-out times

LOCATION:
Our cosy home is situated in the heart of Amsterdam and of the lively neighbourhood called the Jordaan. It is around the corner of the Anne Frank House as well as the prettiest canals.

The street is lively but not loud. Our big windows overlook both our lively street and an inner garden.

LAY OUT:
Our apartment comprises the groundfloor and the first floor of the townhouse. It is well decorated, light and has all the modern comforts except a tv. But trust us, staying in this part of town, you won`t even miss it!

The groundfloor:
comprises a library, a `petite` bathroom and a very romantic bedroom.

The first floor:
is the sitting area, dining room and kitchen that gives way to the sunny balcony.

NEIGHBOURHOOD:
It is literally a few minute`s walk or bike ride to all the city`s attractions.
Jordaan is known for it`s charming local and vintage shops, bars and restaurants and our street might well be one of the loveliest.
In July and August there are free concerts. We will make sure to show you the way to all the less known adventures.

DIRECTIONS:
From the airport to Amsterdam Central Station is a 10 minutes train ride.
From the Station you can hit a tram or taxi (€ 10) to our house.. or you can walk it.
The walk is beautiful and will guide you past the coffeeshops and tourist shops into the middle of the Jordaan.

If our house is indicated as available, it means we will be away for the weekend. Being a mixed couple (Dutch and Belgian) we often travel to see our Belgian family. It means that you will have the house to yourself!

This flat is a great find! The neighborhood is fantastic - great bars and restaurants up and down the street, not too many tourists and just a short walk to all the attractions of Amsterdam. Louise made us feel very welcome, including emailing us a welcome packet and sharing her recommendations for bars and restaurants. The flat is spacious and comfortable for 2 people. I would definitely stay here again!

Nothing but great things to say. The listing is located in what I found to be my favorite part of Amsterdam. Shops, restaurants and beautiful canals are only steps away. Everything was as described and Louise was wonderful to work with. I'd recommend this listing to anyone staying in Amsterdam.

Lovely experience from start to finish. Louise replied to emails quickly, gave us lots of information, and was very accommodating. In particular, our train got into Amsterdam very late at night, and Louise found a workaround so that we could still stay at the property. The house itself is gorgeous- beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The living room is a lovely airy space overlooking the street on the first floor, with a cute little kitchen area; the bedroom, which is downstairs, was peaceful, and the bed provided a very good night's sleep! Louise also has very good taste in furnishings- there is a nice design-led feel to the house, with some enviable pieces. The area where the house is located was also a real highlight. Jordaan is a really nice friendly neighbourhood, far enough away from the madding crowds of the centre to be relaxing, but still filled with lovely shops and amazing food places. Be careful if you are on a diet- there are some excellent pizza and ice cream places dangerously close to the house! And while it's not in the centre, you are only 15/20 min away from the centre by foot, much less by bike.

I am a Belgian. Together with my dutch husband I live in the lively city centre of Amsterdam.

My husband and I love to travel. Since my parents live in Helsinki (FINL), my sister has studied and since then stayed in Edinburgh (SCOTL), and my younger brother still lives in Leuven (BE) we travel at least once a month. When we travel we like to stay in comfy homes rather than in a hotel. For us that was one of the reasons to check out AirBnB.

Besides travelling, my husband and I also love live music, dancing and good food!
For me food is good when it is home made with fresh ingredients, so I love going to the market on Saturday @Noordermarkt and Lindengracht. It is a lively market, just around the corner from our house, that sells nearly everything, think of fruit, vegetables, fresh herbs, fish, cheese, and many other amazing products.

Amsterdam is a capital city but in our neighbourhood everything is small scale. Small theatres, lively bars in hidden corners and shops where the vendor actually knows your name. Living in the Jordaan is like living in a village in the centre of town!

Our neighbours are relaxed people, who love to chat when they run into you and who enjoy all good things in life. I love hanging out in the litlle streets around our house, seeying a movie at a local theatre (the movies) or enjoying a piano concert (pianola).

I`d love to open my house to other couples who pick Amsterdam for a spring or summer get away. I love having friends over and I see AirBnB as a way to meet people from all over the world and treat them to a perfect romantic get away in the best part of Amsterdam.
