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.

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 APARTMENT IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We were lucky enough to be able to stay 3 nights. They had a gap in the reservations and allowed us a 3 day rental! very nice apartment, with a beautiful canal view. They had a welcome basket, stocked with tasty food and wine. Even a chocolate on the pillow...very classy! Then you open the fridge and it's also stocked with cheese, meats, milk, bread and beer! They had everything you would need for a great stay. I found the information they left very useful. We went to one of the restaurants and the food was outstanding. We loved strolling through the Jordaan area, they had the Saturday market going and it was fantastic. Enjoyed our stay, would do it again!

BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT IN AMSTERDAM

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Mondriaan and Zolderkammer apartments in April 2011. They both look exactly as shown on the rental information. Our teenage daughters liked having the space in Zolderkammer to themselves.

The apartment was well stocked with coffee, beverages, snacks and breakfast items, as well as a beautiful bouquet of tulips.

The windows overlook a canal, house boats, and herons and other birds that live on the canal. There are parks nearby and the bus stop is very close. Allen gave us great directions on using the bus from the train station. The train station is also an easy walk and we took trains to Keukenhof gardens, Paleis Het Loo, and Alkmaar.

Allen was very helpful, especially one day when our daughter needed to contact us from Germany!

The Jordaan neighborhood is wonderful, we recommend the markets on Westerstraat on Monday and Noorderkerk on Monday and Saturday.

We would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Amsterdam!

Thank you for the great visit.

WONDERFUL ACCOMMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
Staying in the Mondrian II was a great experience. It is very cozy and nicely decorated, with all the comforts of home (washer/dryer, fully outfitted kitchen with pots and pans and dishes, dish washer, etc.). I felt as if staying here was like being in a home-away-from-home. Having wifi accessible throughout also allowed me to stay in touch with friends, family and business associates as needed. The location is also very convenient, with buses and trams just down the street. Also, we were within walking distance of central Amsterdam and all the sights of the city. I can't find anything to criticize and would recommend this place to friends and family and anyone interested in comfortable travel accommodations in a fabulous location.

ENJOYABLE STAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week here in June of 2008. Excellent location, convenient to public transport and food stores were nearby. Quiet at night. Apartments were comfortably furnished. Owners are on site and were most helpful. Apartments are upper two floors and stairs are steep and narrow but even though we are golden agers we did not find this to be a problem. Highly recommended.
