THE LIGHTHOUSE, WATERFRONT APARTMENT IN THE CENTRE OF AMSTER

Jordaan Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

The LIGHTHOUSE:

(For the actual price see here under or go to 'Rates'. Interested? always ask us for a quote.)

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.

- Low Season / October 1 till March 31 / € 170,- per night / € 1.085,- per week

- High Season / April 1 till September 30 + December 25 till Januari 1 / € 195,- per night - € 1.225,- per week.

***** We also have a Pick-Up at the arrival gate (€ 45,-) and Drop-off (€ 30,-) Service from / to Schiphol airport, bike rent (€ 10,-/day), private car-park (€ 20,- per day), private boat trip (€ 60,-).

Shipbuilder and Publisher started recently a vacation rental apartment in their beautifull newly rebuild wooden Harbor House.

Wouter & Liesbeth Nieuwveld purchased this apartment in 1973

We practised our professions on this location already for more then 30 years. The kids moved out to lead their own lives. We rebuild the old buildings with a separate apartment with its own private entrance.

You are situated on one of the oldest parts of Amsterdam city centre, called 'The Western Islands'. It is a quiet little village, directly connected to the live and kicking part of town with its shops, cafe's, restaurants and cultural activities.

GREAT APARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
An ideal place to stay in Amsterdam. The owners Wouter and Liesbeth couldn't have been nicer. Wouter spent time explaining the apartment and giving us tips for Amsterdam. The bottles of wine and orange juice, plus the box of cookies, were an unexpected treat. We rented bikes for 3 days, but just used them one day, due to my concerns about my young son riding a bike in heavy traffic. Most attractions are within walking distance, though. Very quiet. Very comfortable beds. Plenty of dishes and pots and pans. Wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely return.

UNDISCOVERED AMSTERDAM TREASURE

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful, energetic trip to Amsterdam in large part due to our hosts, Wouter and Liesbeth. They were accessible and informative. We appreciated their Airport transport, canal boat tour, and the quaint movie theater and restaurants they directed us to. Their apartment is modern Euro-style, quiet, clean, and very safe. After a day of buses, trams, museums, and gardens it was the perfect hide-away. We highly recommend this gem, and will be returning ourselves, God willing.

TRANQUIL RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Harbour House makes a wonderful base in Amsterdam. The apartment is stylish, well equipped, clean, comfortable, light and airy with big windows that slide open and delightful canal views. The hosts Wouter and Liesbeth are friendly and thoughtful and the locality has a picturesque and tranquil village atmosphere. For us it made a perfect retreat from crowded streets of the tourist areas especially in the middle of a record breaking heat-wave. There are trams and buses nearby, but if you are up for it a bike rented from the owners is the best possible transport. There are some nice places to eat and drink nearby and lots more in the adjacent charming Jordaan neighbourhood. The airport pick-up and drop off service offered by Wouter helped make our journey and arrival at Harbour House stress free.

“COMFORT, TRANQUILITY, LOCATION, SERVICE, CONVENIENCE AND GREAT PEOPLE...ALL HERE!”

  • 5 of 5
Three amazing days in Amsterdam and Wouter & Liesbeth made it possible with their exceptional Wooden Harbor Apartment.

Don't let the location fool you. Prinsenisland is a quiet and peaceful community of artists offering a respite from the hustle and bustle of the big city....yet it's only a ten minute stroll into the action.

The apartment is extremely comfortable, spacious and clean with all the amenities that you would want in an apartment rental. The views over the canal from the walls of windows brings the unique city into your living room while still offering a private space and feel.

This place felt like a home away from home and the owners have gone out of their way to ensure you have everything you need; from a fully equipped kitchen, spacious bedroom with walk-in closet and excellent bath to private parking (if needed), a cell phone for emergencies and taxi, bicycles, museum passes (which cut our wait from 1 hour to 1 minute), umbrellas and a welcome bottle of chardonnay.

Be sure to book a private boat trip through the canals on Wouters boat. We loved the experience sipping coffee and experiencing Amsterdam from this unique perspective.
Of all my stays in Amsterdam, this was by far the best!

Thank you Wouter & Liesbeth for your hospitality and excellent service!

SENSATIONAL!

  • 5 of 5
We had the great pleasure of staying in The Wharfhouse. The accommodation is much lovelier than the photos. The apartment is light and airy, well appointed and pristine. On our arrival there were fresh flowers, a range of beverages including wine (!), Dutch biscuits and breakfast spreads.
The apartment is in a village type setting just 10 minutes walk from Central Station. The managers, Wouter and Liesbeth are just wonderful! Some great local finds are 'Worst' and 'Couscousine' restaurants and the Sunday market at Westerpark.

A VERY SPECIAL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I stayed here for 3 nights starting Queens Day. We found the location to be absolutely perfect for us and would stay here again in a heartbeat. It's easy walking distance to all of the action, but as soon as you step off Haarlemstraat and pass through the tunnel its like you're in another world. So very peaceful you could hear the birds singing and you hardly see a soul. Very secure. Million dollar view of the canal. Wouter and Liesbeth have created a very special place here with attention to every possible detail...tons of storage space, soft-close cabinets, high speed internet, excellent coffee maker, detailed map of nearby restaurants, tons of natural light, comfortable sofa and chair-and-a-half, SUPER comfortable bed and pillows - the best of anywhere I've ever stayed. The above and beyond extras were a wonderful surprise...stroopwafel and bottle of wine to welcome us, a loaner mobile phone pre-loaded with their number and other important numbers... There was a bomb scare at Centraal Station on Queens Evening and they ended up shutting down the luggage storage area at the train station. Wouter graciously allowed us to store our luggage with them the night before we checked in, and suggested an excellent Indian restaurant for dinner, which totally made our evening. We walked to Centraal to meet friends almost every evening (about 20 minutes) and one night we took the bus from Centraal (#18 or #21) a few stops to just beside the pedestrian tunnel under the train and saved 10 minutes walking time. This apartment is exactly like the pictures and is excellent value for the price. We would highly recommend it and will be coming back then next time we visit Amsterdam. Thank you Wouter and Lieseth, you are excellent hosts!
