The Light House is situated on a canal waterfront location in the Centre of Amsterdam on the trendy and sought after quiet “little village” Prinseneiland.
The exclusive apartment ( 100 m2 / 1075 sq.ft) has its own private entrance and hallway. The entrance of the apartment is situated on the terrain of the former shipyard “De Walvis” which you can enter through a private gate.
On the second floor of the gray wooden building we find the apartment. The apartment has one large bedroom with a king-size double bed (width 1,80 / long 2 meter), which consists of two separate mattresses that can be adjusted electrically into any position you like, and there is a Sony Bravia flat screen TV. Next to the bedroom is a large bathroom with bath, separate shower and a sink. There is a separate toilet in the hallway.
Through the hall we come into the living room containing a sofa, very comfortable chair and a round glass table with comfortable Castelli design-chairs. From here you have a magnificent view over two crossing canals. Wireless Internet connection is available. The living room can be used as an office and comprises a big flat screen TV, DVD player, I-pod docking station and a fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen has a refrigerator, hot-air-oven, microwave, gas cooking plate, coffee-machine and a toaster.
The historic “Shipyard The Walvis” was transformed by the current owners into two stylish gray wooden buildings, situated on a private terrain. There are private moorings for small boats. In one of these buildings we find on the second floor the apartment “The Harbor House”.
The Shipyard is situated on the Prinseneiland, just a short walk from Central Station and is located in the Amsterdam Centre in a quiet historical area of warehouses, canals, docks and shipyards now converted into a quiet, residential area just an interesting few minutes' walk away from the famous canal area and the highlights of Amsterdam.
Most places of interest are in walking distance, but if you would like to hop on the tram or bus to go places, there are stops very nearby.
It is a three-minute walk to bus stop18 and 22 from/to Central Station and tramline 3, the circle line that passes the museum area.
Leaving the Island, you enter the 'busy city', where you find the Haarlemmerstraat, one of the nicest shopping and eating streets of Amsterdam, round the corner of the famous neighborhood the 'Jordaan'. In the area are a broad variety of places where you will find breakfast, lunch or diner.
The Islands Realeneiland, Bickerseiland and Prinseneiland are three small unique islands that still belong to the Centre of Amsterdam. The atmosphere feels like a small quiet village of old shipyards, from which some are still functioning, and warehouses, most of them converted into apartments. Artists and people with creative professions came to this neighborhood to find the quiet spirit of the past so close to the busy part of the city.
