UNIQUE HIGH END CANAL HOUSE, NEWLY RENOVATED, OLD INNER-CITY

Canal District Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This canal house on the Prinsengracht (110 square meters more than 1,000 square feed) is completely renovated. We bought the apartment six years ago and everything is new. As our apartment is located at a corner, there are 7 big windows overlooking the cannels which makes the apartment unique!

The apartment contains:

- Spacious master bedroom including bathroom (with bath, shower and toilet)

- Bedroom with two single beds that can be put next to each other including bathroom (with shower)

- Open kitchen

- Spacious living room including high def. TV

- Separate toilet

- Fireplace

- New beds and furniture

- Wireless unlimited internet

- New modern kitchen with everything you need including American fridge

- Wooden floors

- Double glazed windows (although you you don't need it because it's a quit area)

- Washing machine / dryer

- Towels, sheets, dishes etc.

- Excellent coffee machine

Our apartment is in the centre of Amsterdam on the South part of the canals near the 'Spiegelgracht' where all the art galleries are.

It is located 2 minutes from the 'Leidseplein';

The 'Leidseplein is very crowded both throughout the day and night. When the sun is shining, the terraces quickly become filled. Street performers entertain the public, with acrobatic acts and music. At night the crowd changes: Amsterdammers go out here to celebrate, and to visit the theatres, cinemas and clubs. It is also possible to rent bikes at the Leidseplein, which you can store in our bicycle room.

On February 1, 1999, the Dutch government decided to qualify the inner city, the canals of Amsterdam, as a monument, a protected inner city view. The girdle of canals (ranging from the Singel Canal up to the Prinsengracht Canal) is a historically important part of this region, and it is one of the city's most attractive sights.

The girdle of canals starts at River Amstel and ends at Brouwersgracht. One third of the houses along the canals (grachtenhuizen) were built before 1850. During the 17th Century the city extended its boundaries, and canals were shaped in a girdle around the oldest part of Amsterdam to accommodate wealthy tradesmen and burghers. First the Singel Canal was dug out, then the Herengracht, Keizersgracht and, last of all, Prinsengracht.

Eefje is an interior decorator working in the 'Oud Zuid' area of Amsterdam. I am an entrepreneur, with a consulting background at McKinsey & Company. We both are fond of Amsterdam, but still like to travel to all parts of the world. We both are enthusiastic sport players (field hockey, tennis, running and golf). Our children (Floris, 4 years and Lily and Isabella, both 2 years) are our newest hobby together with our silver Labrador dog Muis (Mouse in Dutch).

Cazijn purchased this apartment in 2008

We bought the apartment because it is located at the best spot of Amsterdanm

Amazing Stay!!

The place is perfect! Both Cazjin and his wife could not have been nicer. It was clean and well equipped. We loved the location and really enjoyed the restaurant, Buffet Van Odette, downstairs. Highly recommend it!!

Lovely Apartment!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and another couple stayed here and loved it! The location is perfect, easy walking to everywhere we wanted to go. The flat is beautiful and very comfortable with a wonderful view of the canal. Cazijn was extremely helpful in answering questions for us. We loved this place, and Amsterdam! One note, the stairs up to the flat are steep and narrow, as they are in most Amsterdam accomodations....just be aware. Not a problem for us, but may need to be taken into consideration by some. We would stay here again, if we are lucky enough to return to Amsterdam!!!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful apartment in Amsterdam with another couple for four days this April. The apartment was everything advertised and then some. Not only was the view onto the canal spectacular, but the inside was exquisite. It was beautifully decorated with all the amenities necessary. The beds were very comfortable. The location on the Prinsengracht Canal could not have been better. All of Amsterdam was very walkable from the apartment, but it was in a quiet area with many nice restaurants and bars close by. So much nicer than a hotel. I highly recommend choosing this lovely apartment.

Beautiful Sunny Apartment - Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent stay here last week for a family of three. The apartment is sunny, clean, beautifully decorated and appointed, quiet, and perfectly located. With extras like a bike room for rented bikes, washer and dryer, a good coffee machine, and a helpful and communicative host who provided us with and a nice bottle of wine, we couldn't have been happier.

Everything advertised and more!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was perfect! Everything promised and more! I was there combining business and pleasure and it was a little oasis away from the craziness of the day. The flowers and bottle of wine waiting when I arrived just made this very special. The location of the apartment cannot be beat. It was easy to catch the trams and walk to everything! While the stairs were steep, after a few times you got used to it and it was great exercise! Can't say enough wonderful things about the apartment and the owners. They were very attentive and wonderful to work with. One of the best restaurants I have eaten at and took clients to was at the end of the street! This is my 8th time back in Amsterdam and I will most definitely stay here again! Beautiful!
