About this listing
Our beautiful, four-bedroom house filled with light is in Amsterdam-North. Just two minutes from the ferry boat that takes you across to Central Station for free, the location is ideal. Tranquil and green, yet extremely close to the centre of town.
What's unique about our place is the fact that we are so close to all the great things Amsterdam has to offer, and we also happen to be on one of the most peaceful streets in town. We're surrounded by beautiful trees and our balcony is ideal for relaxing on a warm, sunny day. We don't smoke inside the house, but smoking is absolutely allowed on the balcony. We have two toilets, one on the first floor, and one on the second floor. The house can fit a lot of people. We have four bedrooms, one of which will be taken by our roommate. Two rooms will be available to guests: the Sky Palace, which is the beautiful big attic room with its own sink, a double bed in the loft and possibility for another double bed under the loft, and the Sunfilled Room on our second floor, which also gets incredible light all day and has a beautiful view of the trees on our green street, and has a very comfortable double bed. We even have a sleeping couch in the living room which pulls out to a lovely double bed (and you'll have enough privacy since there's a big lush curtain that you can close to create your own private sleeping space and separate you from the kitchen area).
We have an amazing kitchen with a kitchen island/bar stool area that we love to use as our dinner table because it's right next to the balcony and gets lots of light. Feel free to play our piano as much as you want (just don't play too much at night as the neighbours need their sleep!) The bathroom has an amazing shower and bathtub, there are tons of towels and a washer and dryer for you to use. You'll share these spaces with our roommate, but since he'll be in and out, you'll have a lot of space.
Interaction with guests
We're a group of four friends living together. This summer, three of us will be travelling so that leaves one of us in the house. He will be here to welcome you, give you the keys to the house, show you around, and answer any questions you have. He will be working a lot so will mostly be around in the evenings. Just make yourself at home and enjoy the house and the city.
Our house is located in the north of Amsterdam, which is quickly becoming one of the most interesting neighbourhoods in town. Just minutes away are the Eye Film Museum, great cafés and restaurants by the water, an organic food market every Friday, parks and a beautiful forest, and the NDSM-warf (10 minutes by bike, or take the ferry boat from Central Station to NDSM) where you'll find Europe's biggest monthly flea market De Ijhallen, restaurants, cafés, and festivals in the summer.
The ferry boat that goes from Central Station to Ijplein is ideal, since from there it's just a couple of minutes walk to our house. The boat runs from 6.20 am till midnight. The Buiksloterweg ferry, which is only a little bit farther from our house (about a ten minute walk) goes all night, so it's always easy to get home. Here are the boat timetables: (URL HIDDEN)
From Central Station you can get all the buses and trams and metros you need to get around town easily, and it also serves as a perfect location to start wandering from!
Other things to note
We have two bunnies that are very friendly and easy-going. They mostly live on the balcony. Our roommate will take care of them, but of course you can play with them as much as you like!
Make yourself as comfortable as possible, enjoy our beautiful house and neighbourhood! Just try to be mindful of the neighbours. Generally noise isn't a problem here, but please mind the obvious things like blasting music at night.
