About This Listing
Welcome to wonderful Amsterdam! A home away from home awaits you.
Our three level, traditional Dutch canal house is situated in the Jordaan on a lovely and quiet canal, close to the main attractions, but also immersed in local Amsterdam life.
The apartment is spacious and bright (95sqm), with dual aspect and sun all day from either the back or the front. All of the floors have nice views of the canal and neighbourhood.
The second floor (entry) features a luxury kitchen with a top range oven and stove, dishwasher, refrigerator and all the cookware you might need, as well as washer and dryer. An open dining area connects, with a lovely view on the canal. In addition, there is a full bathroom/wet room.
The third floor has two open living spaces, with a king sofa bed and a full bathroom with bath. There is flat screen TV, countless DVDs, a stereo and lots of books available for your entertainment (plus a desk if you really need to get work done!).
The top floor is a spacious, private bedroom with a king size bed on hand made raised platform. Off this, there is a large balcony with tables and chairs, overlooking the rooftops of Amsterdam. Step out to enjoy a glass of wine, meal or just a little relaxation and fresh air.
The house is in a desirable location, only a quick stroll (or quicker bike ride!) to top attractions, such as the Anne Frank house and the '9 streets' for shopping. Or, for a feel of local life, food and treats, the lively Saturday market at Noordermarkt is only 2 minutes walk. In addition, the house is very near some of Amsterdam's best restaurants, bars and nightlife, beautiful parks and outdoor spaces.
We are happy to help with restaurant and travel recommendations for the area and have several books on Amsterdam and Europe available for your use.
We look forward to welcoming you soon!
We live in a quiet, residential area and our neighbors will appreciate noise control. No parties, smoking or drugs permitted within the home. We also hope that guests report any issues with their stay, including broken items or items that need repair.
Misti's house in the Jordaan is an ideal place for a stay in Amsterdam - a charming multi-storey house next to a canal in a leafy and quiet residential neighbourhood yet within only minutes' walk or bike ride of the railway station and historic centre.
Misti was away travelling but she arranged for someone to meet us at the house on arrival and helpful notes were pinned to the fridge to tell us about any practical matters we might encounter.
The house is spotlessly clean and very spacious (but cosy-feeling) with a bedroom on the very top floor and a study on the floor below with a convertible sofa/bed. The kitchen is well-equipped and with two separate bathrooms the house is ideal for 2+ visitors.
The entrance to the house is on an upper floor relative to street level and - as is typical of Amsterdam canal houses - the stairs from the outside door are *very* steep and narrow, as are the stairs inside the house. This was not a problem for me at all but it's something that some visitors might want to bear in mind when booking a stay in this or any other traditional Amsterdam canal house if they are less mobile or plan on travelling with large luggage - however Misti was in touch with me when I made the booking to check that this was all OK so I was well warned in advance and personally it caused no difficulties at all!
All in all I loved staying here and would very happily recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in a good location to explore Amsterdam while having a home-from-home to return to.
The place is great. I would really recommend it to anyone wanting both a short and long stay in Amsterdam. We stayed for three weeks.
It was well located to lots of quality cafés, restaurants and other amenities such as chemists and supermarkets. It was nice and quiet, with a really pleasant view of the canal. It also had all the comforts of home and in particular a well equipped kitchen. It felt like a loved home.
We stayed in a number of places on our trip and this was the best by a good margin.
Also, Misti was very attentive by email and she even arranged for things to be delivered to us while we were there, like a baby chair and other baby things. The neighbour down stair is a really nice guy, which just made our stay that little bit more enjoyable.
All in all, if you are thinking of booking this place, you can book it knowing you will not be disappointed.

This accommodation is great, it's in a good location, traditional Dutch house. The stairs require a bit of work when carrying in your bags but well worth it. It has all you require and is close to restaurants, supermarket and easy walk to most tourists sites. Had a fantastic time.
Misti's Canal House was absolutely perfect in every way! The location was perfect, residential but in an interesting working class neighborhood. The grocery was close by so we were able to fully utilize the well appointed and beautiful kitchen and had so much lounging space we didn't know what to do with! Misti's assistant Matthijs was beyond graceful and understanding when I screwed up our arrival time and made arrangements to obtain keys to the house. As others have noted, the stairs are very narrow and steep so this would need to be considered for those with limited mobility. We only wish we would have been able to spend more time. Besides the perfect location with canal views, the apartment was very spacious and clean, comfortable and wifi worked perfectly. Thank you for letting us stay!
Wegbeschreibung zur Unterkunft war sehr gut, wir haben es leicht gefunden. Begrüßung durch Matthijs sehr freundlich! Danke für den Wein;-)! Haus ist wie auf den Bildern. Lage toll, aber nicht so ruhig, wie beschrieben. Leider war es nicht ganz so sauber und ist an der einen oder anderen Stelle renovierungsbedürftig. Auf den ersten Blick ok, aber das Schlafsofa war voller Haare, die Bettdecken hatten viele Flecken und etwas staubig war es auch. In der Küche und im Esszimmer krabbelten Ameisen. Bettwäsche ist auch nicht mehr die neueste, man findet nichts zusammen passendes und es liegt total zusammengeknüllt in einer (staubigen) Ecke. Handtücher sind reichlich vorhanden und sauber. Sie lagen aber feucht und muffig im Schrank. Alles nicht wirklich schlimm, aber eben auch nicht top.
Appartement comme sur les photos ! Idéalement situé, quartier calme et très sympa. Attention aux escaliers toutefois !
