Recently renovated apartment in the souterrain of our canal house dating from the 17th century, Amsterdam’s Golden Age. Along one of the three main canals, de Herengracht, this house has a unique location - everyone will agree - because of the wide views on two canals, both Herengracht and Blauwburgwal.
This stylish and comfortable guesthouse with private entrance and patio offers a spacious living room with dining table and fully equipped kitchen with some of the original 400 years old floortiles preserved.
The souterrain has one bedroom with an en suite bathroom. Optional: additional guest room with an en suite bathroom, only available in combination with the apartment.
It's connected to the apartment by internal stairs, which gets you to the rear part of the groundfloor, the so called Achterhuis, as in the Anne Frank house.
- modern decoration
- smart TV
- WiFi (free)
- external disk with approximately 100 movies
- coffee and tea included
- fully equipped kitchen
The place is very warm and furnished with an eye for detail, and perfectly suited for one or two couples or a family to retreat and discover Amsterdam.
I like hosting in our guesthouse and so meeting wonderful people from all over the world.
As an Amsterdam born I love strolling around in this beautiful city of mine. Although it is a city, it often feels more like a small village: a friendly atmosphere, many, many bikers, narrow alleys and it's easy to feel at home, to feel like you're a local. I hope you will enjoy Mokum (that's the name of Amsterdam in slang) as much as I do.
Last 2 years, my wife Nancy and I have been renovating an old farmhouse in rural Portugal.
I have been working for 20 years in Human Resources.
Without exaggeration I can say that this is one of the most beautiful spots in town.
My wife Nancy and I were very lucky to obtain this property in which we are living with so much pleasure.
After re-foundation of the house, we have the basement converted into a guesthouse with all comfort that makes a stay enjoyable.
