Overview

Old Center Villa Rental Photos and Description

180 m2 luxury canal house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and small garden

Our luxurious large house (180 m2) on the Singel canal in the old town of Amsterdam is a real gem. With Dam square, Jordaan and Anne Frank House just around the corner this is the perfect place to explore Amsterdam.

The house is situated on the ground floor and sousterrain has a small garden which is unique in the center of Amsterdam

The apartment contains:

-old 17th Century marble hallway

-very large (65m2) and bright living room with 4,5 meter high ceilings with old monumental beams (dating back from the 17th Century!).

The living room has 4 large doors with windows which can be opened leading to the quiet garden.

The room has a stereo

-because this room is so high we have made a large mezzanine floor to create even more space where we have made a chill out lounge with the 40 inch tv a sofa and a massage chair.

Perfect to relax on after a long day of sightseeing

In April 2015 we finally are allowed by the townhall to make a fixed stairs here . So the ladder on the pictures will be removed and this stairs will make the mezzanine floor with the TV room and massage chair easy accessible.

-exclusive designer kitchen (Bulthaup)with all appliances you can think of all from the exclusive brand Gaggenau. (for example large oven, steamer, dish-warmer, dish-washer, 5 pit gascooker, Quooker (=boiling water faucet) etc. etc.)

-half open Diningroom also with 4,5m high ceilings which overlooks the quiet ZEN-style patio. This room has a very large dining table made of old oak castle-beams suitable for 10 persons.

-in the marble hallway is a seperate toilet with designer sanitary. A wide monumental stairs covered with carpet (so it is not slippery) leads down to the 4 rooms on the level below

-2 large bedrooms which can be connected to each-other by opening the double doors in between. There is day-light made by 2 large windows in the ceiling to the patio.

Both rooms have comfortable double beds.

One of them has access to the guest bathroom. This bathroom has designer sanitary-ware with large rain-shower and designer washbasin.

-large hallway with build-in cabinets with wash-machine and dryer

-second toilet with designer sanitary-ware

-large master bedroom with king size bed (200 x 200 cm)and a lot of build-in cabinets, large 42 inch. LED tv and access to the master bathroom

-Very large bathroom with designer sanitary with 2 wasbasins, large freestanding bathtub made of Corian, large rainshower and view upon the garden: there is also floor heating!

Everywhere in the house is wireless High-speed internet-access

All furniture and is new and made of top quality and designer brands

Beautiful wooden flooring

Double glazed windows everwhere

Towels & sheets available

Excellent Nespresso coffee maker

smoking is only allowed after our approval. We do no smoke ourselves so would like to return home in a clean house. We prefer non-smokers

Our apartment is right in the center of the center of Amsterdam. Just 100 meters walkingdistance from the famous Dam square. Also Central station and Anne Frankhuis are very nearby.

The famous canals are very quiet and truly beautiful. But in short walking distance the city is vibrant and alive: When the sun is shining, the terraces quickly become filled, the best shops are nearby (for example Bijenkorf with Hermes and Luis Vuitton shops) and a lot of museums are close by.

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.

Since 2010 the canals are even made Unesco World Heritage.

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.

In the middle of the old city center with all major attractions at walking distance, you would expect this place to be noisy. Luckily it is the exact opposite: the quiet gardens are a perfect hideaway from the hustling and bustling city life…

About Seb

Me and my wife live partially in Amsterdam and in Spain. This is why our lovely Amsterdam home sometimes is available for you to stay. It is our real home , so not a holiday home and we are sure you will feel welcome here. We stored our own belongings in some cabinets in the house but left you more than enough space.

We travel a lot and love to meet new people. We can provide you with insider tips about the city to make your stay unforgettable.

Have a wonderful time in our house!

Seb purchased this villa in 2011

Why Seb chose Old Center

We loved the situation of this Monument: right on the famous Singel canal and with Dam square just 200 meters away, it is the perfect basis to explore the old city center by foot, bike or boat! Even as it is so centrally located, it is still a very quiet and peaceful place between the canals and the beautiful gardens.

What makes this villa unique

Lovely decorated home with spacious living room and very high ceilings. Bulthaup designer kitchen and Cocoon sanitaryware throughout and some designer pieces. Our quiet small garden is perfect to relax after a day of sightseeing.

Stunning canal house

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location and wonderful canal house. Seb is a great host and responds very quick. He also gave us very detailed information to self check-in easily. The apartment is clean, spacious, and modern. We travelled as a group of five and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Just perfect! Will definitely recommend to others and happily stay again!

Best place to stay in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in an amazing neighborhood. Walking distance to the Daam and red light.

the size of the apartment was perfect for a group of 4. Very spacious compared to other apartments and hotels we stayed at. A very large living room makes a huge difference for this place.

Before arrival received a very nice handbook with full easy instructions on how to activate and use any gadgets and equipment in the apartment. Same handbook was printed and available on the kitchen table when we arrived.

Highly recommend to book.

No downsides at all.

Spacious, Centrally-located Canal House!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the canal house! The location could not have been better. You walk outside the front door and are greeted by a canal and are surrounded by excellent cafes, shops, and restaurants. You are also in walking distance to almost all of the major sites. The apartment itself is beautifully appointment with a unique, modern design. The layout worked well, as our party included my husband, daughter, and I along with my parents, so there was plenty of space for all of us. When we had questions on how to operate appliances, the hosts were responsive, friendly, and courteous. We would definitely stay again on our next vacation to Amsterdam!

Amsterdam canal apartment

  • 1 of 5

This apartment is not as advertised. The primary problem was a sewer smell in one of the downstairs showers that was unbearable and made the entire apartment uninhabitable. The shower was a confined space behind a door that when opened almost made me pass out. It was not clean, the furniture was old and very used, the walls have not been painted in years, there are items (clothing, shoes, boots, electronics, etc.) laying around throughout the apartment.

Owner's Response: Such a pity to read this message… this guest arrived after the house was 3 days empty in between 2 bookings. As we have floor heating in the house one of the shower drains got empty allowing some smell to come up. This is normal in a house which is not used for a few days. I explained guest that this was easy to remove just by pouring water in the drain. If you shower every day the smell never comes up. This is just a normal thing in any house with a designer drain and with normal use never a problem. Guest already left the house right away and was still not happy and did not wanted to return to the house. Still, we sent a cleaner right away which is our normal standard when a guest has a question or any problem (such as for example a broken light bulb) . My cleaners checked the house and poured water in the drain and the smell was gone. They also left a nice bottle of wine for the guest and I asked them to return. Which they did not do unfortunately. When the guests arrived the first day the house was clean, but as she does not want to return ( I guess they already booked a hotel a bit too fast needing to pay for that as well) she now comes up with some new "complaints" to support her claim. Just the 4 days before she arrived other people checked-out leaving us a 5-star rating on another rental (Airbnb) website. I can show you this in any case you need any confirmation that the house is in top condition. One month ago we painted the walls in the entire home and bathroom, and even installed special window protectors for the garden doors, which you do not even see yet on our pictures. So, her story about the house not being painted for years is not true at all. We are in touch with Homeaway about this matter as these "guests" gave us a horrible time. Luckily, most of our previous guests are super happy and we believe and hope that this guest will have a more positive focus at any place she will ever stay. Amsterdam is a lovely city as well as that our house is a great place to stay, we always try to help our guests in any way, but sometimes you just can not live up to their expectations. Luckily , this is a very rare situation.
