CENTRALLY LOCATED IN OLD CENTER WITH ALL MAJOR ATTRACTIONS AT WALKING DISTANCE

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

-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…

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. 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.

Comfortable stay in a great location!

  • 4 of 5
Overview:
Great size space for 6 adults (3 couples). We stayed here for 4 days at the end of August 2014. VERY SAFE area on the canal and near good restaurants and shopping at the "9 streets".

What we liked:
Living room is comfortable with high ceilings. We loved "coming home" to this after a long day around town. Kitchen, loft, and dining room are beautifully integrated into the layout to make it spacious. Massage chair is a nice addition. Wireless internet access (mostly upstairs) was great.

What we did NOT like:
Two of the three bedrooms are connected with a thin door so there is not much privacy although that can be a plus if you have children with you instead. Cleanliness and linens were not hotel quality but satisfactory when compared to other vacation rentals I've stayed in internationally.

Management:
GOOD owners. There were some complications with the refundable deposit not charging back to my credit card properly after our stay so the owners sent me the money through PayPal instead. Again, they sent me money back AFTER the trip, and they handled it perfectly so as not to make me worry that I wouldn't receive it.

Nice house on canal in the old town

  • 5 of 5
I arrived in this large house to stay for 7 days from the 14th of August. As we needed a late check-in it was very convenient to use the lockerbox to easily get the keys. The house was clean when we arrived and Seb wrote us a guide with nice info about the neighborhood. This, we used a lot and it made our Amsterdam stay very special! Great restaurants nearby, and some lovely organic shops which we normally never would have found.
Amsterdam is a beautiful city and this house a great place to stay.

Fantastic and comfortable house on top location!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed in this beautiful house for 5 days and we absolutely loved it. We loved the central location as we were within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. I would highly recommend this apartment. I certainly shall be booking here again when we next time come to Amsterdam.

"We love Amsterdam! We love this house! Stayed here in July 2014 with my friends for a week. The house is very comfy and we especially loved the massage chair!

Large house with good sizes bedrooms, very clean and Seb gave us a nice guide book which he made himself with info about all kinds of nice things to do in the area.

The house is on a great location and we could walk to Anne Frank-house and Dam square. All very nice.. we rented bikes and one day even a boat in which we could see the canals from the water.

Hope to ever come back!! Thanks Seb and Jessie!!

Not a new listing!

  • 1 of 5
We recently stayed at this property and up on arrival, it was flithy. The bathrooms flooded, trash in the trash bins, spoiled food in the refrigerator and no way to get a hold of the owners. Although the location was outstanding, having to arrive at a vacation home and begin cleaning is not my idea of vacation. I am not sure how the ownwers got all the old reviews taken down and relisted, but it is a scam. I am very, very disaapointed in VRBO, have never had this experience before.

Comfortable design in quiet canal-house in center.

  • 5 of 5
Last month we stayed at this wonderful house in the Jordaan to celebrate my 50th birthday, together with my family from Canada.
The house is very spacious and clean, and you can see a top-designer has had a say in the renovation of this old canal house.
It's location is priceless, as we could go and visit all the interesting sites on foot. Very close by, there are many nice restaurants, also some very good ones that serve an amazing breakfast..although all amenities are present in the kitchen to make your own breakfasts and diners!
Especially the "9 streets", which are around the corner are heaven for special shops and good food.
Although it's in the centre of Amsterdam, it's very quiet in the house, so we could have our well deserved sleep after a long day on our feet.
It's a house very well fit for families.
It was great to show my family around in our capital from such a fantastic "base camp", it really was a home away from home!
