The Space

Hi there! Thanks for checking out our listing.

We own a fantastic two bedroom(+study) apartment that is centrally located in Amsterdam. The Westerpark neighborhood is one of the most pleasant in the city and our apartment is located opposite one of the city's best parks. Within a few months walking distance are various restaurants, bars, two cinemas, as well as playgrounds for the kids and great public transportation options. Furthermore, it's extremely well insulated, so there is very little noise once inside.

The apartment has possibly the best views in the city. On the third floor (fourth if you're American) you will find a great living room and open plan kitchen. The living room has hardwood floors, a comfortable couch, fifties designer chair and table and book cases with plenty of English-language books (and cookbooks!). There's a flat screen TV with digital reception and plenty of English-language channels. The kitchen is fully fitted out (microwave, oven, stove, dish washer) and has a wooden countertop. We also have an espresso maker. Furthermore, there's a table for four persons (can be extended to six) with chairs and a high chair.

The stairs take you to the next floor (again, wooden floors), which has a small study at the top of the stairs with a nice view and built in desk (wi-fi available). Furthermore, there's a bathroom with walk-in shower and sink, a nice sky-light, a washing machine and a dryer. You will also find a single bedroom with built in wardrobe. This room is currently in use by our daughter, with a crib, but it can be converted to a proper single room (the crib could be placed in the master bedroom for a small child, if desired). Finally, there is the master bedroom, with a quality double bed and mattrasses (extra lenght - 7 feet) and beautiful views over the park. There's also a great quality piano, which you can play if you like!

On the top floor you also find the stairs to our roof terrace which can't be missed! There's a table with four chairs on the roof, you can use our sun umbrella and day-bed, and we have a barbecue available. The roof terrace is decorated with bamboo plants which need little care and we could leave flowers as well (which need a little more TLC). The roof terrace has views over the whole city and has all-day sun!

Westerpark is a great neighborhood just west of the Amsterdam city centre. Central in the neighborhood is the eponymous Westerpark, a park that's great for jogging, cycling, lounging and barbecueing. There's even a small kiddie pool in the park! Within a few minutes walking distance, there are various restaurants, bars, two cinemas, shops, supermarkets, gyms and a large pool.
No more than ten minutes walking will get you to the Jordaan district, with even more options for shopping, eating and going out.
All of Amsterdam is within 15 minutes' reach by bike (which can be included in the exchange), but if you prefer not to cycle, there are great public transportation options too (various trams and buses within walking distance). The beach is a mere 20 kilometers - a great bike ride on a sunny day, but various buses and trains can take you there.The Dam Square is approximately 10 minutes by bike or 15 by public transportation.

  • We had a perfect stay at Louise's apartment. We stayed almost 2 months and found it to be extremely comfortable, well-located, everything very easy and functional, and with lots of good music and books! There is a small office room upstairs that was a nice, quiet place to work, and the apartment is right across the street from one of Amsterdam's best parks: Westerpark. We went there frequently and there were always concerts, shows and music at the bars and restaurants there. Louise herself was very responsive and helpful when we had any questions or needed advice. We highly recommend Louise's apartment.

  • I rented Louise's apartment for my Mother while she was staying in Amsterdam. Louise was the consumate host. Totally amazing in every step of communication, the apartment itself was clean and ready for the stay upon arrival, totally comfortable and with all amenities. She even went the extra length to make a personal note for my Mother upon her arrival by name. I would definitely recommend this apartment. Great location, easy to transportation (1 block away) and close to shopping, frites, gelato, and one of the best parks in Amsterdam (Westerpark).
