About this listing
My apartment is situated in the south of Amsterdam in an area called the Pijp. The neighborhood is quiet and tranquil yet hip, vibrant and there is a lot to do!
The apartment is situated in a wide and green street with hardly any traffic. Either by foot or by bike you are very close to the Albert Cuyp market, the Vondel- or Sarphatie Park and the Museum square. There are many good café’s, restaurants and museums (Stedelijk museum, van Gogh, Rijksmuseum) just around the corner. It’s a 2 minute walk to the tram stop and there are two big ‘Albert Heijn’ supermarkets close by.
I’m the proud owner of ground level house in a 1920’s apartment building. For a large part I did the renovation and built the book cabinet myself. The house is about 60m2/640sq ft and it has a garden. At night it is very quiet apart from the soft ringing of the church tower bell.
There is a fully equipped kitchen and because I am quite the amateur cook myself, you’ll find everything you would expect here: forced heated oven and spacious stove, sharp cook’s knives, large fridge/freezer, nespresso machine (capsules included) and dish washer.
My living room has a large dining table where you can easily sit with six people and next to it is a small TV room.
The bed room has large (1.80m x 2 m) bed, towels and linen are included. There is separate bathroom and toilet.

It’s a 2 minute walk to the tram stop. Tram 12 stops which brings you to the western part of the city and to the museum district. You can also hop on another tram which brings you to the city center.
Other Things to Note
I think the best way to quickly move around in the city is by bike. There are several bike hire shops especially in the city center. 'StadsFiets' is closest to my home.
- Smoking preferably in the garden, not in bed!
- Mind the other residents and don't make noise at night.
- Please treat my home as it were yours, with care!
