Interaction with Guests


DO YOU WANT TO EXPERIENCE REAL AMSTERDAM? A BOTTLE OF WINE IS WAITING FOR YOU! WE WILL GIVE YOU A WARM WELCOME AND HELP YOU WITH ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT AMSTERDAM.

The Neighborhood

The canal is located in the oldest, UNESCO protected part of Amsterdam, with quite narrow streets. You could easily forget that you are right in the center of Amsterdam. This is the best place you can wish for while visiting Amsterdam!
Public transportation stops are right around the corner, but actually you don't need it. You can reach everythin in the center by foot, the rest by bike.

Within 5 minutes walking distance:
+ Nieuwmarkt (lively square, terrace, cafés and restaurants, Saturday there is an organic market and Sunday antiques)
+ Waterlooplein (daily brocante market)
+ Supermarket and organic supermarket
+ Rembrandt house (this is where he lived and worked. You can see it from your window!)
+ Opera house and city hall (together the ‘Stopera')
+ Hermitage museum
+ Artis Zoo
+ Botanical garden Hortus Botanicus
+ Rembrandt square (although I would not recommend it!)

Within 15 minutes walking:
All the rest in Amsterdam center!

Getting Around

The apartment is located right around the corner of the lively Nieuwmarkt square, that also has a metro stop. On the Waterlooplein, a 4 minutes' walk, you can grab several trams. From the Train station Amsterdam Central you can reach the apartment in 11 minutes by foot, or 1 metro stop to Nieuwmarkt.
On several locations close by, you can rent bicycles. I will provide you with some good addresses when you arrive.

Hi, I'm Esther, and I help organisations to work on a more sustainable world.

Apart from that, me and my boyfriend Albert spend as much time as possible on our lovely wooden boat. That means our apartment is free for you to enjoy!

If you decide to stay in our house, I like to meet you in person when you arrive and answer all your questions about Amsterdam. In my student days, I used to be a tourguide on a canal boat, so don't hestitate to ask me anything!
