What you will love about this home
Our house is located in a green and child friendly neighborhood in the centre of Amsterdam called Old South. The historic city centre with the famous sights & highlights of Amsterdam are all less than 10 minutes away, either by bike-ride through the famous Vondelpark or by tram. The houses in this quarter are 3 to 4 story brownstone buildings and were build at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century. Our street is situated between the Vondelpark and Rembrandtpark.
The house is fitted with fresh linen & towels for your visit, and will be fully stocked with basic supplies for cooking. There are many shops to buy groceries and local delicacies. Do visit our local cheese shop Jan Verbeek on the Heemstedestraat or if you like wines, old jenever or special whiskeys drop in at Ton Overmars liquor store on the Hoofddorpplein.
What you will love in the neighborhood
We welcome you to stay in our house and enjoy the local atmosphere of this great & bustling city, be it to experience the daily live of an Amsterdam local or to (re)visit Amsterdam's great cultural highlights such as the renewed Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, the world famous Concertgebouw or the bristling nightlife.
A great number of very good restaurants and bars are close by, even one with a famous chef that recently received a Michelin star (Ron's gastrobar). Our personal favorite restaurant is Blauw, which serves the best Indonesian cuisine in town. And do visit Gent aan de Schinkel, our local bar around the corner with a great selection of Belgian beers and a heated terrace that is open the whole year round and has a nice view on the Schinkel Canal.
And as a last tip: do go to the beach when you visit in spring or summer, its just 45 minutes to one hour away by car. Our favorite beach is Bergen aan Zee, where the most beautiful dunes of the whole of Holland can be found, with stunning flower fields at their feet. It's even better than the Keukenhof! If you travel to Amsterdam by train or flight, we can make an arrangement to use our station car during your stay to explore the surrounding nice 16th century cities like Haarlem, Enkhuizen and the countryside.
