Want to experience Amsterdam in a original way? Come stay at our apartment in the cosy neighborhood De Pijp. What to expect?
our house isn't huge, but not that bad for Amsterdam standards. Its a 70 square meter two-floored apartment. On the front side of the house there's an open kitchen. The big table in the open kitchen is a nice place to have a glass of wine together before cooking or a late sunday morning breakfast. Get yourself a coffee (we have a Nespresso machine) and walk to the corner of the street for a newspaper. Want to relax more? At the backside of the room there's the living room with big couch plus tv. Here you find the staircase to go down, where the bathroom and bedroom (quiet and dark) can be found.
