This is your opportunity to stay in a renovated 'Rijksmonument' apartment from 1666.
Our beautiful apartment is located on the Prinsengracht, overlooking two historical bridges and a tranquil canal.
This area is the most beautiful and photographed scene in Amsterdam, sit at your window that directly overlooks the water and watch the boats sail by. Our apartment is located on the first floor of a historical monument building that has been fully restored to its original glory and renovated to feature all modern day comforts and luxuries. It is conveniently located in the heart of the Jordaan district, an area known for its beautiful canals, historic buildings and wonderful shopping. In the area is a huge variety of small local shops, cafes and restaurants. On Saturdays there is an organic farmers market and on Mondays there is a flea market just around the corner at the Noordermarkt. Central Station, Anne Frank house, and a number of other museums and historic locations are all within walking distance. Public transportation and grocery stores are all within a few minutes. The best shopping area, the 9 streets with wonderful Dutch and international boutiques, is only a 7 minute walk from your front door.
The apartment is 70 m2 and has an open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area, a master bedroom with ensuite, a guest bedroom, a toilet and a laundry. The apartment can sleep up to 4 people. We are happy to provide a baby cot if required. It has a fully equipped kitchen and laundry. A flatscreen television and wifi are also connected in the apartment. Best of all it's on the first floor so very easy for luggage and or older guests. Trust me in Holland most apartments are full of stairs, we only have 10 for you to climb! It's also very quiet although central so we promise you'll have a great night rest as well.
Our apartment has featured in a monthly column in the famous Dutch interior design magazine 101 home ideas for the past 12 months. All of our artwork and vintage pieces have been specifically chosen to give the apartment a unique, creative, warm feel. We look forward to welcoming you to your own little home away from home!

We would prefer couples or families who will respect our lovely apartment. This is not a party apartment as we want to retain the wonderful relations we have with our neighbours. If you have a baby we can supply you with everything you need including a monitor, steriliser and pram if required. STRICTLY NO SMOKING.
This is a gorgeous apartment in a fantastic location to explore Amsterdam's sights and canals, with a great view on the hustle and bustle of some busy streets. The nearby bars and restaurants are lively (but not noisy) and feel as though they have a nice balance of local and tourist appeal. So we spent a couple of days feeling like Amsterdam residents!
Eva had left everything we needed for a great stay and was a kind and generous host. She wasn't troubled by us arriving later than expected and was happy for us to leave our bags in the apartment until later in the day we checked out.
The apartment had everything our family needed. The laundry room was a godsend once we translated the Dutch washer/dryer instructions to English. The apartment location is like a movie set. In fact, one night during our visit, notorious film director Dick Maas filmed a scene for his next movie right outside our door. The canals and bridges were lit up in an eery blue light that you can see in his forthcoming film PREY!
Great host. Great location. Great apartment. Great city. The whole family had a fantastic time in Amsterdam. I would recommend the apartment to anyone.
We adored Eva's apartment. We are a family of 4, two children ages 8 and 11. The entire place was super clean and beautifully decorated. We felt spoiled. We loved the location right on the canal. Our kids had fun sitting by the window in the lovely front room and waving to passing canal boats. The area is lively, but with the bedrooms in the back, it was plenty quiet. The kitchen, albeit smaller in scale, had everything we needed. The master bedroom felt spacious and we appreciated the double sinks in the bathroom. The second room was snug, but worked out fine for our 2 children.
Again, the location was great. We were just 1 block from a market to buy fresh groceries and amazing restaurants are everywhere in this part of town. (Note: You must try the apple pie at Winkle! just a few blocks down. It lives up to it's reputation. Plus, the food is equally delicious. Best meal we had in Amsterdam and so reasonably priced.) We also liked being close to the Anne Frank house and the Canal Bus stop. We opted for the 24 hour hop on hop off Canal Bus pass. Next time I'd do 48 hours. It really was a very convenient way to get around to the city's top attractions.
I highly recommend it!
This is a perfect location! You're a short walk away from the train station for day trips, close to some great restaurants & sights, and on a beautiful canal. The apartment is roomy and bright, and Eva was helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed our week's stay there very much.
Die Wohnung ist genau so, wie beschrieben und für einen Aufenthalt in Amsterdam perfekt gelegen. Das Jordanviertel ist ein Traum und man ist mittendrin. Da die Schlafzimmer hinten raus gehen, schläft man trotz lebendigem Trubel auf der Straße, sehr ruhig. Wir 3 Frauen, 3 Generationen haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles hat gut und unkompliziert geklappt. Ein kleiner Haken ist vielleicht das Badezimmer... man erreicht es nur durch das große Schlafzimmer...so muss man sich absprechen, wer der Langschläfer ist. Die Toilette ist aber extra und somit ist es nicht wirklich ein Problem.
Eva our host was most helpful in giving us advice about location and access to the apartment. The apartment is lovely and in a beautiful location. The facilities provided in the apartment are excellent and the furnishings most comfortable. We were given every privacy in our stay but with ready support available if required. Highly recommended and we hope to take advantage of this gem again.

About the Host, Eva
Hello we are an Australian couple living in Europe. We have recently renovated a wonderful apartment in the Jordaan Amsterdam. It's been a labour of love, the house is from 1666, so it's a true monument. We love travelling and have been to every continent around the world - except Antartica (we did make it to the southern most part of Argentina though!) We have lived in Amsterdam for almost six years and before that the UK and Asia. We're social, friendly, trustworthy and love meeting new people. We are also renting out our family home in Melbourne. Australia. Both of our parents still live there and look after the property. We look forward to welcoming you!
