Our Philosophy: HOME AWAY FROM HOME

We travel a lot both for work and for holidays, and it is these experiences that have inspired us to create the Marnixkade Canal view Apartment. In developing the apartments, we have tried to combine the flexibility and relaxed atmosphere of a vacation rental with the local touches of a B&B and the comfort of a boutique hotel.

The apartment has been furnished with a theme and include the amenities one needs or wants when traveling, we strive for understated elegance, where comfort takes precedence over pomposity.

ENVIRONMENT

We have also tried to factor in care for the environment when renovating and furnishing the apartments. Eco-friendly features including roof-top solar water and photo voltaic panels which provide part of the hot water and electricity used, low energy appliances, low energy lighting, double glazing in most rooms, hardwood bamboo floors in the Mondriaan apartment, eco-friendly cleaning and personal care products and some organic food products.

We know Amsterdam: Marnixkade Canalview Apartments are owned and operated by Eelco and Bruce, a Dutch American couple. We are long-time residents of Amsterdam, and have been renting apartments on the Marnixkade for the past 12 years. We live in the building where the apartments are located and have been restoring the apartments step-by-step since we moved here.

We love Amsterdam, and we love sharing this enthusiasm for our city with our guests. Meeting so many wonderful people from different cultures is what motivates us to do what we do and continue to enjoy it. We look forward to welcoming you.

Guestbook comments from the manager
My husband and I stayed in the Marokko during the Christmas of 2006, and we were very pleased with the accommodations (sorry for being so late :)! Bruce and Eelco were very helpful in recommending restaurants in the area…Principe de Curtis, Zuid Zeeland for a wonderful Christmas dinner, to name a few. The apartment itself was warm and cozy during the cold, cold winter season and practically everything we needed was available to us in the unit. We loved that there was a small grocery/deli just behind the building with very friendly owners and great food. It was also nice to have the tram stops so close to the apartment, although walking about town in the crisp winter air was also rewarding. We will definitely come back to Amsterdam again – this time during Spring or Summer – and enjoy the sunshine and blooming flowers. We will, of course, contact you again, Bruce & Eelco, when the time comes!

Dutch-American living in Amsterdam for the past 25 years. I have always traveled a lot for my work and holidays and have seen some great and some pretty bad accommodation. In developing Marnixkade Canalview Apt. I tried to capture all the things that I would like as a traveller. The small attention to detail is often the most important. I enjoy meeting people from different cultures and different backgrounds. As I have always worked internatioally, I speak a few languages, including: English, Dutch, French, Spanish, Afrikaans, and some German.

Bruce Haase purchased this apartment in 1991

We live on the ground floor and first floor of the building, and have slowly renovated it since buying it more than 20 years ago. The thing I like most about the building is the view. It has the charm of looking out on an Amsterdam canal with a quaint little marina on the other side of the canal, but what's quite unusual is that there's and a small park beyond that.which means that, at least in the summer, we don't see any other buidlings, just trees. This makes it very light and quiet. It feels like the best of both works. Because of course being in the Jordaan, there are literally hundreds of restaurants, cafes and galleries within a few minutes walk.

The property was built in the 1870's and renovated in the 1930's. The stained glass windows and sliding stained glass doors are all original. But while it maintains the charm of a traditional Amsterdam building, it also has all the modern amenities including double glazing, central heating, a modern kitchen and nice bathrooms. Tastefully furnished. The other thing, important to me at least, is trying to make the buidling as eco-friendly as possible. With a solar water heater, photo voltaic panels, and renovations that always take into account the planetary impact.

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

This comfortable apartment is in a quiet location and is an easy walk through one of the world's truly unique and great city neighborhoods into Amsterdam center. The gracious hosts make a stay in their apartment that much more enjoyable. Well equipped, plenty of space, good location, a fantastic value. Thanks Bruce and Eelco!
-David, Concord, MA

My wife, two daughters (13 and 10), and I spent a week in one of the Marnixkade Canalview Apartments in the fall of 2005. It was an absolute delight -- tastefully furnished, perfectly located in a quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance to the sights of Amsterdam, reasonably priced. But what made our stay special was the non-intrusive attentiveness of our host, who assisted us in many ways. Our stay was a perfect blend of the social connection one finds at bed-and-breakfasts and the privacy offered by big hotels. When we return to Amsterdam, we'll surely stay here. We VERY highly recommend it!

GREAT CHOICE IN JORDAAN AWAY FROM THE CROWDS.

  • 5 of 5
Very pleased we found the Mondriaan apartment in Jordaan for many reasons.
Situated in this (relatively) quieter neighborhood away from the chaos of the downtown hordes this was our retreat when we'd had enough for the day. No need for vehicle - easy and pleasant walk into the city.

Delighted to find how clean and well equipped it was - maid still cleaning when we arrived. We dropped our bags and went shopping at nearby supermarket with some regrets (don't make the same mistake!) - as when we returned we found the apartment stocked with everything from the staples such as juice, bread, butter, eggs, cheese, ham to a table setting with fruits, a basket of assorted goodies, beer and wine and a vase with fresh roses!
Extremely generous, very welcoming and much appreciated.
Bruce on vacation himself but niece Ise was delightful and answered all of our questions. Thanks Ise!
The apartment is well equipped and WiFi pretty fast. I agree with prior reviews - stairs steep (as is the norm here) and not for disabled. We are a couple of late 50 yr olds - no problem. The one bedroom apartment is perfect size for 2 and maybe two kids but a squeeze for 4 adults noting the one small bathroom off the bedroom.
Was impressed with all the Eco/power saving features, the washer and dryer, all the appliances you could possibly need, though never did get the hang of the Innowave oven even with online 84 page instruction manual!

We look forward to booking here on our next trip back this way and can definitely recommend it to others.

EXCELLENT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We arrived earlier in the day when the apartment was still being prepped for our arrival. Bruce was great and let us put our luggage in the apartment while we left and explored the city. The apartment that we stayed in on the 4th level is exactly as the pictures show. Very comfortable and we felt at home immediately. We didn't see Bruce much except at the beginning of our stay and at the end and he was great at answering our questions and telling us about the city and what we could do. The guide binder that he and his wife put together was excellent as it told us everything that we had questions about. We would go exploring from about 10am and get back at 10-11pm after a full day and it was always great to be there. Kitchen was clean and great and there were some basics stocked for us. Bathroom was very clean too. I wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment again as we would definitely return to Amsterdam for another vacation!

EVERYTHING WE HOPED FOR

  • 5 of 5
The Marnixkade Canalview Apartments are in an ideal location close to the tram and the shopping and restaurants of the Jordaan area (and walking distance to the Central Station and various attractions in the city center). We spent 8 nights in the Marokko apartment and everything in the owners' description is true. The apartment is very well equipped and we were delighted to find it stocked with planty of food for breakfast plus snacks, wine and beer (and movies, art books, guidebooks, maps, hairdryer, et al) . While we found many restaurants in the neighborhood, it was also a pleasure to shop at the Saturday organic market at the nearby Noordmarkt, and be able to come home to cook ourselves dinner in a small but well equipped kitchen. The wifi was very fast and reliable too. We plan to stay there again!

While I am recommending this for age 55+ (because we are), it's not for anyone who has trouble with stairs - they are pretty steep. It's quite spacious for a couple but it's probably better for 2 people than 3-4. There is a sofa bed in the living room but not a lot of other seating in the living room (other than at the dining table, which does seat 4) and you have to go through the bedroom to get to the kitchen and bathroom.

WEEK IN AMSTERDAM GREAT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from Amsterdam after staying at the Marnixkade Apt, in the Jordan. The apartment was ready for us when we arrived early from Instanbul, key in the door, fridge stocked and fresh roses in the Window. This is perfect location to have peace and quiet in the Jordan, but close enough to enjoy all Amsterdam has to offer. Its a bit of a walk from Central Station, but very doable. The owners were available promptly if needed, but honored our privacy. Lots of guidebooks and maps in the apartment, along with umbrella's etc. Groceries and ATM are close buy, as well as Tram Stops. If your staying in Amsterdam, go for this, we will again.
