This spacious apt is 80m2(850 sq ft) and is on the fourth floor (WITH LIFT) of a well kept building with wonderful views. The view in the living room is of the Wester Church, and the Keizersgracht Canal, and the bedroom looks out at trees and gardens. The large living room has two couches, and is very comfortable, and bright. There is also a new wood burning fireplace. The bedroom has a queen size bed, desk, flat screen TV, DVD player, desktop computer, printer/copier, large closet, and sofa that is comfortable enough to sleep on for a third person or a child. There is a large corridor that separates the two rooms. Both bedroom, and living room have doors so there is lots of privacy. There is a bathroom with bath/shower, and a separate toilet. We have a washing machine, and dryer. New wooden floors throughout the apt. The apt was totally renovated in 2006.
The neighborhood is wonderfully convenient. We are in the City Center (Jordaan) with three tram lines and three buses on the street. There are cafes and restaurants on the street, as well as a supermarket right next door. It is an easy trip to Central Station. The neighborhood (The Jordaan) has many unique, boutique type shops as well as neighborhood stores. It is a very convenient area in the heart of the historic district. There is a bicycle shop right on the street if you want to rent a bike. We are two blocks from the Anne Frank House, the Dam, and it is a 15 minute walk to the Museum area, and Vondel Park. The wonderful Noordemarket(organic foods on Sat., and antiques on Monday) is five blocks away.

My husband and I bought the apt in 2006 after going to Amsterdam for 10 or 12 years. We used to exchange apts (we live in NYC) with a good friend who lives in Amsterdam. After five or six years of loving the city we decided to buy something. We go to Amsterdam two or three times a year for a month or two, and rent it when we are not there. We have some very good friends who take care of the apt. They are wonderfully helpful to any renter, and lovely people. They will meet you with the keys, and explain anything you need to know about the apt or the city. They live a few blocks away should there be any problems.

I love the central location, and the convenience of being right in the middle, and yet being in the historic district. My husband thought he might like a quieter street, but has come to love the convenient location where we can just step out, get on a tram or bus,and go just about anywhere.
The apt is really very comfortable with many amenities. We even have a Nespresso Coffee Machine. Most of the dishes, linens, pots and pans are new, as well as most of the furniture. There is a nice selection of books, CDs, and DVDs.The apt. has Wi-Fi, and a desktop computer and printer. The views are wonderful, and the apt is really nice. Please e-mail if you would like more pictures.
Just to say we bought, and completely renovated another apt. early in 2013. If this apt is rented, and you would like to look at pictures of our second apt, it is VRBO #465010. Thank you.
Could not have asked for a more stylish and convenient apartment to spend our Christmas and New Years at in Amsterdam. The property was perfect – it had absolutely everything we needed and was the perfect size for myself and my partner to spend two weeks at relaxing.
I fell in love with the location – right across the street from Anne Frank’s house and just over a 5 minute walk to Dam Square, not to mention well within walking distance to other attractions such as the Foam Museum, Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. There is a supermarket next door which is extremely convenient.
The building has a lift which was fantastic as the apartment is located on the 4th floor. We felt extremely safe as the building has a great security system in place. The apartment can be set at your preferred temperature which was fantastic for anyone who is travelling in the cooler months. The views from the lounge room were magnificent – from one side you look down onto Westermarkt where you can see the Westerkerk (church), the canals and surrounding houses which made it so beautiful to sit down in the evenings and spend time in the room.
Joan and Sylvia are such beautiful people – from the minute I enquired about the apartment Joan has always been so kind and professional and Sylvia who met us on our arrival was fantastic.
I could never stay anywhere else after experiencing Joan’s apartment. Certainly one of the best holidays that we have ever had and I look forward to staying there again in the future.
A very enviable flat exceeding all our expectations. The flat has almost every amenity one can imagine for a city center location. I own my own business so it is essential I stay connected. The WiFi was superb for our laptop, tablet and cell phones. A computer and printer were available for our use (even though we didn’t use them). A washer/dryer always makes packing easier for a two week stay and this one didn’t disappoint. The kitchen, while not overly large, featured all appliances including an American sized refrigerator/freezer and a full sized dishwasher. It was extremely convenient and functional. My wife is Dutch and lived in Amsterdam several years. It was a pleasure having her sisters over to visit us in the flat.
While the windows in the living area face west and you can’t see the actual sunrise, it is a light show seeing the sun’s reflection off the newer buildings on the harbor as it comes up. The trees on the Westermarkt were beautiful with their autumn colors. As darkness approached, it was spectacular looking at the lights straight down the Keizersgracht or to see them come on in the building block housing the headquarters of Amnesty International.
All types of retail outlets you can imagine are within three blocks. So convenient to arrive for a longer stay and not have to worry about running all over to stock the flat. Upon arrival, all necessary staples as well as chocolates and a bottle of wine were already on hand. Some of Amsterdam’s best restaurants, cafes, and pubs are within easy walking distance as well as the great majority of attractions.
The landlord, Joan, was easy to deal with from the beginning. She was prompt, courteous, and accommodating in every regard. The property manager, Sylvia, was beyond professional and was not the least bit upset when our plane was diverted to Maastricht for refueling before arrival.
It was truly a pleasure staying in this property.
I recommend this apartment highly. I've rented vacation apartments in the Netherlands as well as countries both in Europe and South America. This apartment was, by far, one of the best I've had in over 20 years of traveling. Staying there was literally was like being at home. It was large, we'll appointed, fully stocked, ideally located, and incredibly clean. Moreover, the manager, Silvia, was both pleasant and accommodating, as was the owner, Joan, whom I initially worked with. Never were there any problems, and I definitely will rent it again the next time I'm in the Netherlands.
This was our second stay in this wonderful apartment. Can not ask for anything better, location, lift, fireplace and being spotless clean. Such a comfortable apartment to stay in.
Sylvia, the lady that will meet you is amazing. The owner of the apartment also owns another apartment in Amsterdam and we had the opportunity to see it. We know if this apartment is not available we will rent the other if available as that is charming as well.
We will never stay in Amsterdam unless we can stay in this apartment.
Thank you Joan!
This was the 2nd time we stayed at this apartment. I can't say enough good things about the place. It's clean, comfortable, spacious, it has amenities that we normally take for granted but are rare in Amsterdam rentals such as a dishwasher, washer, dryer, & an elevator. it is centrally located in a lovely area known as the Jordaan. It's a great apartment, you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Joan for another wonderful stay!
This is probably one of the best apartments I have stayed in within Europe. There is a tram stop right outside the frontdoor, but you are also within walking distance for any attraction someone would want to visit. The apartment is above the sorrounding buildings so there is a great view of the sorrounding area. There are markets, cafes and information/tour shop on the same street. The property managers were very helpful to me. I would encourage anyone to stay here. The next time I am in Holland I would not bother searching for another place to stay.
