The Neighborhood

Residential area on one of the historic islands. No sleeping problems with party noise though right in the center. Very light studio-appartment on plaza with big trees. River and canals at 200 m. Distance to night life on Haarlemmerstreet 300 m. Every day need shops and restaurant at 50 m. Tram 200 m.

There are all kinds of deli, wineries and supermarkets, restaurants and take-aways or night shops at 300 m distance on Haarlemmerstraat. Sunday bakery just off Haarlemmerplein. On Haarlemmerstraat you have all kind of night activity from pub, theatres to cinemas. Meanwhile the house is located in a delightfully silent area.

Getting Around

Walking distance with light suitcases from central train station is 10 min. Tram line 3 (circular line) stops at 200 m. Buses from train station running along river and to Haarlemmer Plein (Plaza).

How to arrive on arrival day:
From the airport the apartment is ideally located at 25 min. by cab (30-40 Euros) or train (3-4 Euros). And then two options:
Arrival at central train station.bus and Tram line 3 (3 Euros) or buses to Haarlemmerplein from central station arriving. Tram stop at 150 m from the house and Haarlemmerplein 300 m from the house. Free parking is not available in whole Amsterdam but you can park at Europarking and take tram line 3 home (please look it up on internet).
Arrival at central train station. Renting a bike on Central Train Station Amsterdam!!!! The absolute Amsterdam feel of life. Do not forget to lock it to something fixed like an iron gutter and to close both locks the bike rental gives to you.
You could even walk from central station. It's a 15 min. walk or so.

So, everything easy to arrive at the home and on touristic track. From the airport:
Take train from Schiphol airport to central station and then bus or tram or a cab, it will be 20 min. train plus 10 min. cab or bus in total. This is the more touristic arrival route.

Other Things to Note

As Amsterdam homes have wooden staircases, we only want socially responsible guests who agree on not talking on the staircase when coming home late. We have great neighbours and want to keep those relationsships.... :-) Once we had tell guests about using the security to make sure they are silent in the hallway.

House Rules

security deposite: 300 Euros for daily and weekly rent (back min. cleaning 50 Euros)
security deposite: 1000 Euros for monthly rent / longer 1500 Euros
Of course deposite will be returned entirely after receiveing a normally used home (no piles of dishwashing and plastic bags with beer bottles).

Historic homes are built from wood in Amsterdam, so even after insulating againt noise, neighbours hear each other more then in concrete buildings. For this we only accept families or groups who are responsible citizens.
Sorry to say but as we had bad experiences before, we now handle the policy to use the security money in case the neighbours in our home or the neighbours who hear you talk loud on the stairs, the street or roof terrace will file a complaint to me. And we will inform Airbnb of breaking the rules and take you out of the home. Airbnb has backed us up in that case before!
Will be done by worker 50 Euros and on the basis of normal use of the house.
Normal use of the house as a normal guest means taking down your own litter and your own bottles as it is 3rd floor and easy for you as a group to leave the home in a normally used way.
Please note, this is a self-catering appartment. No bed & Breakfast service or hotel. You will fill up needs like toilet paper or dishwashing soap etc.!!!
