The Space

Short description

Furnished three bedroom, three storey 'stilt house’, located in the pedestrianized street Haringbuisdijk, in IJburg, one of Amsterdam’s modern architecture & design areas. Overlooking the water, the house has terraces in front of the house and on the water, and an 18 m² roof terrace with great views over North East Amsterdam, an old fisherman’s town and the big Dutch inner lake IJsselmeer. It only takes 11 minutes by tram to get to Amsterdam Central Station, from where you can easily reach all the famous sights of Amsterdam like the royal palace, the canals and the museums. Visit the bustling centre of Amsterdam and then retire to your beautiful, quiet house on IJburg with its amazing cloudy skies, spectacular water views, and nearby restaurants, beach and shops.


This very unusual, light and spacious family house has the wow factor you are looking for! It is situated in the newly developed area IJburg, along the Ijsselmeer, and was built on poles directly into the water. With no houses built in front you, you have a great open view over the water all the way to the North of Amsterdam. IJburg has much to offer for architecture lovers. Barcelona even got inspired by IJburg when it designed its own enlargement El Prat Nord (Source: Het Parool), a district that is build by Dutch architects Claus en Kaan. IJburg consists of six artificial islands. The two main islands are Steigereiland and Haveneiland. Although the combination of water, air and urban vibe makes all architecture at IJburg worth seeing, there are some spots you shouldn't miss!

The Blijburg Beach is at walking distance, while shops, bars and restaurants are just around the corner. You can reach Amsterdam city centre within 11 minutes by using tram line 26 to Central Station, which runs every 5 minutes. From Central Station it is only 20 minutes to the airport by train.
A taxi to the airport will take only 30 minutes, and the main ring road around Amsterdam is only a few minutes away. Street parking in the surrounding streets is limited, but there are Park & Ride facilities at 5 minutes’ drive towards to city centre.

IJburg is known for its design. Many architecture lovers visit this part of Amsterdam, where 75% of its houses was designed and built by the buyers themselves, without any planning restrictions. So many streets are filled with extraordinary designs and architecture! On the southern part of this island is the design strip with its trendy Dutch design shops. On the next island (5 min) there is a shopping area where you can get everything you need for a pleasant stay.


The house is divided over three floors.

Ground floor: From the street you enter the huge living/kitchen with its 3 meter ceilings, fitted with all modern appliances. On this floor there is also a hall and a separate toilet. Located in the front of the house you find a terrace where guests can enjoy the evening sun.

First floor: There is a large master bedroom with a double bed, one bedroom with a bunk bed and one room with two single beds which can be attached to each other because there boxsprings! On this floor there is also a bathroom with shower, toilet, washbasin and laundry facilities.

Second floor: This floor houses the 30 m² living room/study. This room has a sofa, separate chairs, a piano, TV and stereo. Double doors lead to the roof terrace (approx. 18 m²). DVD and stereo available on this floor.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Die Unterkunft von Coos und Saskia war perfekt. Die Lage ist optimal, man geht nur 2 Minuten zur Straßenbahn, die einen dann in 13 Minuten zum Hauptbahnhof bringt. Das Haus war sehr sauber und die Einrichtung wirklich so, wie auf den Bildern. Coos hat uns sehr nett empfangen und hat uns gute Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt gegeben. Die Buchung ist ohne Probleme gelaufen, Coos hat auf Fragen immer sehr schnell geantwortet. Das Parken direkt am Haus ist relativ teuer, es gibt aber in der Nähe einen großen Park and Ride Parkplatz. Ich kann diese Unterkunft von Coos jedem empfehlen, der ein paar schöne Tage in Amsterdam verbringen möchte.

  • Modern house in newly built quiet outskirt Steiger Island, situated above the water. Spacious kitchen/dining ground floor and lounge with terrace on top floor; 3 bedrooms and good bathroom on middle floor (good size but one bedroom was a bit cramped for 2 adults). Very clean, well equipped. Short drive from motorway access and city center and with public transport options; paid street parking with moderate rate. Shops and restaurants in the area. Wide view over the lake. Helpful, friendly owner. As the ground floor is designed to have end-to-end glass fronts on both sides you have to be OK with the fact that the (very few) passersby can look in (a very Dutch building characteristic).

  • Coos is a great host. Our train was delayed, Coos still waited for us at the tram station even it was very late.
    The house has a very good location and really nice taste of design no reason why it is a designer’s house. It is so clean, new and convenient that you can reach the tram station easily from the house. You can find everything that you need perfectly.

  • Wir (5 Personen) wohnten während einer Woche im "Architectures Paradise". Coos hat uns herzlich empfangen und Tipps für Amsterdam gegeben. Die Wohnung hat uns sehr gut gefallen, ist wie beschrieben, nur die Treppe ist steil. Die Umgebung, Ijburg und die Nähe am Wasser sind beeindruckend.

  • We were very happy with our experience of staying in this Architectural paradise. We met Coos when we came and he was very pleasant and helpful, gave us good advice for the city on a map. There is also a cabinet full of tourist leaflets for fun things to do.
    The house was in very good condition, clean and up to great standard equipped with all the important amenities, from toilet paper to coffee.
    We spent our Christmas in the apartment so it absolutely will be a trip to remember.
    Best regards, Gudrun

  • The house was more than comfortable for my travel group of 6- we wish we lived here permanently! Coos and Saskia were very friendly, accommodating and super helpful throughout our stay. I have no hesitation in recommending Architecture's Paradise hosted by Saskia and Coos.
