Our cool and comfortable three bedroom penthouse with great view has a true city feeling. On one site of the building the buzz of Amsterdam and on the other side the relaxed waterfront with a little harbour with sailing ships and houseboats.
Feel really at home in our beautiful modern penthouse in the heart of Amsterdam. Our house is in the middle of Amsterdam, on walking distance of Central Station, Jordaan, the canals, Prinsen Eiland, Dam square and the cultural area of Westerpark. The view is amazing from the 6th floor, overlooking a cosy old harbour called " Oude Houthaven", the new industrial place on the other site of the IJ (NDSM warf) and the arriving cruise ships coming from the north Sea.
The apartment is really well designed with modern and light materials, cosy furniture, art and accessories. You will really feel at home here. On the 5th floor there are 3 bedrooms, one children bedroom with a bunk bed (on the picture you still see 2 babybeds they are replaced now by this bed) , one master bedroom with a king size bed and a 3rd bedroom with a king size bed. The bathroom has both a shower and bath, and there is a separate toilet. On the 6th floor a big spacious living room (75 square meters) with an open kitchen and glass doors to the roof terras. The roof terras has a table with seats and a couch.
I am sure you will have a great stay when visiting Amsterdam while staying in our apartment. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us.

Interaction with Guests
Me or my husband will do the check-in and then we leave to let you enjoy the apartment on your own. Of course we are available by phone/mail for questions or help.
Our neigboorhood is a nice mix of houseboats, old traditional Amsterdam warehouses turned into appartments and offices and also new architecture buildings. Water on one-side the city on the other-side.
* Please smoke on the roof terrass only.
* No parties, this is a residential area and my neighbors are working people!
* If there are no other guests I'm flexible on arrivals and departure
* Accidents do happen! Please just tell me asap and I can rectify any problems/breakages for you, and the next guests.
* Otherwise enjoy your home from home!
Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen. Blumen standen auf dem Tisch. Die Wohnung ist wie beschrieben sehr großzügig, ruhig und mit einem Blick der fantastisch ist. Es fehlt nichts. Werden die Wohnung gerne weiterempfehlen.
The flat was great, with spectacular views of the harbour. Very quiet, too - and very in touch with the elements. Wind is what you can expect in Holland in December, and wind is what we got. All the more important was the safe and warm feeling we got in the flat. Location very good if you like a walk - 20 minutes to Amsterdam central station, and about 35 minutes to the centre of the city.
Although we didn't get a chance to meet the owner - she was abroad for most of the time, and we had a very busy schedule ourselves anyway - we felt very welcome. The family's babysitter was expecting us on arrival and explained us what we needed to know, and the fridge contained some food and drinks which we were told explicitly to be at our disposal. Also, we had very good contact with the owner by email, so I'm sure they would have found a solution to any problem we might have had. Though we had none.
We'll be happy to return at another occasion - maybe in another season, which could give us the opportunity to use the wonderful terrace.
Quite soundproof between the bedrooms as well, which can be quite important if you're travelling with youngsters who are up and surfing on the net or listening to music for the best part of the night ;-)
Lovely apartment, perfect location! Walking distance from CS (about 15-20 min). The living room is very spacious and has an amazing view over the water. The communication with the owners was very good before and during our stay. They were very helpful and did their very best to make us feel at home. I would recommend this place to anyone!
It was great place to stay. Host replies very well. Unfortunately they were in a different place when we stay, however, his parent supported us very kindly. It was exactly a great stay.
Me and my friends were really satisfied with Tijntje's appartment. It was even better than expected.
Appartment is very well equipped and functional.
Communication with host worked nicely.
Amazing place to stay! The pictures did not do the views justice. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and would recommend to anyone. Location slightly out of town but this was just what we wanted and everything was within easy walking distance-we only used public transport once!!
Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
We are Tijntje (working at eBay/Marktplaats) and Diederik (working at Royal Jumbo). We live together with our 2 children in Amsterdam. We love to travel, and try to go at least on one big trip a year. But also a lot of weekend trips during the year. In the summer we spend a lot of time in our wooden chalet at the beach in the North of Holland. We love Amsterdam because its beauty, the nice places to have diner, the theaters and music houses, the lovely markets on the Noordermarkt (Monday morning and Saturday) and much more. But we can give you all kind of ideas and suggestions depending on your travel purpose. Our house is suitable for families but also for people without children.
love to see you in our house,
Tijntje & Diederik
