The space

Live and work at a lively waterway within walking distance of the famous district De Jordaan, the Westerchurch and the main canals.
In the former bookbinding building nice lofts have been built that guarantees a pleasant residential environment with preservation of industrial atmosphere.
The Bindery refers to the many years of bookbinding in the white building to the Kostverlorenvaart. In 2006 the book bindery moved to another location outside the city center.

The apartment is 100 m2, modern furnished, spacious and bright. The kitchen is equiped with built-in washdisher an oven and a design Atag cooker.
The bathroom has a walk-in shower, double sink and a sauna.
It is good to stay in my apartment mainly because it is located in a lively neighbourhood.

Although the apartment has only one specious bedroom with a double bed, it is possible in colsultation to use the sofabed for an extra quest.

Every Saturday is a market at the Lindengracht and close to that at the Noordermarkt is an organic farmers market.
Every Monday morning till 13.00 hrs is a famous Fleemarket at the Noordermarkt and a general market at the nearby Westerstraat.

A stone's throw away are many cafe's and terraces. For culture, theatre and film is the Culture park "Westergasfabriek", only 10 minutes walking distance. The district Jordaan is only a 5 minutes walk (!), it is the designated place for special boutiques, all kinds of cafe's and restaurants and for a nice evening stroll.

I had a great long weekend at Els' place. She was extremely helpful when I arrived - showing me around & helping me figure out the best ways to get to the places I was interested in visiting. She also had left me things to welcome me - bottle of wine & breakfast for the first morning!

Love this place! The apartment was even bigger than it looked it photos! It was great to see the boats sail by the window! We were able to wash and dry our laundry! The garage parking was perfect as we did choose to drive to some if the further attractions. There was plenty in walking distance, though. Els was a great host. Waited for us when we were late, left us breakfast and a beautiful place to stay!

Els' place is definitely one of the most impressive apartments I've ever stayed in my whole life! It locate right over the Canal and the view is breath taking. The apartment itself is also very outstanding due to Els creative decoration and the amenity is beyond adequate. You can find everything you need and there is even a in house sauna! Els is very helpful and considerate, she write a lot of useful tips on a welcome card and helped me through my whole stay in Amsterdam. I highly recommend Els' unique and cozy apartment!

Great apartment in good location. We were able to walk to all the sites. We were very happy with the quiet! Excellent bed, lots of pillows, great linens and towels. Well equipped kitchen and bathroom. I enjoyed the sauna, the garden, and watched boats on the canal.

Els has a fantastic home just on the water, its close to everything and just secluded enough to have peace when you want it. Clean, beautiful, considered and designed interior with all the amenities. A truly lovely home and host. My favourite place to stay when I come to Amsterdam.

I am a young elderly and I have lived in Amsterdam for 25 years. I love this wonderful, free but small metropole with all my heart.
My hobbies are visiting flea markets, design, contemporary art and baking cookies.
I travel a lot, especially to South Africa and capital cities.
I am very hospitable and love to invite family and friends for dinner, to stay over or just to be together. I've got two grown-up sons and 7 grandchildren. Having grandchildren is something amazing and I thoroughly enjoy it.
