THE HARBOR HOUSE, WOODEN WATERFRONT APARTMENT IN THE CENTRE OF AMSTERDAM

Old Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

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

The Harbor House is situated on a canal waterfront location which is still the Centre of Amsterdam on a trendy and sought after quiet and safe island, the “little village” of Prinseneiland. The entrance of the apartment is situated on the site of the former shipyard “De Walvis” which you can enter through a private gate. The entrance gate says De Walvis, meaning The Whale. The historic “Shipyard De 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.

On the first floor of one of these buildings we find the apartment “The Harbor House”.

The exclusive apartment ( 100 m2 / 1075 sq.ft) has its own private entrance and hallway. The apartment is a loft. In this loft we find one large bedroom with a king-size double bed (Hästens, width 1,80 / long 2 meter), and there is a Panasonic flat screen TV. Next to the bedroom is a bathroom with a toilet, shower and wash basin. There is a large walk-in closet.

Between the bedroom and the living room we have the entrance and the large fully equipped kitchen with a refrigerator, hot-air-oven, microwave, gas cooking plate, a dishwasher, coffee-machine and a toaster. There is free coffee and tea. There is also a wash-dryer combination.

From the kitchen we enter the living room. There is a very large lounge- sofa, a design glass table and a large flat screen LG television. In the corner we find a little desk-table with all kind of information for your stay.

The Shipyard is situated on 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 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.

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, some of which 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 town.

We are Liesbeth & Wouter Nieuwveld. We are living here for almost 40 years. Wouter was a ships-designer and builder and Liesbeth was a manager of theatre groups. We have two sons and five grand-daughters. We converted our offices and workshop into luxury and roomy apartments.

Wouter & Liesbeth Nieuwveld purchased this apartment in 2007

We rebuild several years ago the old wooden buildings of the shipyard. The wooden buildings are a landmark on the island where we are located.

The athmosphere of the three little islands on which we are located is unique. We are still the City Centre, but a quiet and safe little village next to the busy part of the centre.

Calm Village of Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Harbor House. It was spectacular. First dealing from a distance with the host was super straightforward, quick, and pleasant. When we arrived it was even better. Wouter had a great list of recommendations, and history of Prinseneisland that were quite useful and interesting. The apartment is well appointed and completely lovely. The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom quite nice. The living room was spacious and the dining room had a great table where we could have meals or catch up on a little email during the mornings. The apartment has small canals on two sides and this gives a lot of interesting visual relief to the apartment. The Island itself is a sea of calm inside an ocean of big city hustle and bustle. Yet it was easy to walk to the center, and the busses and the trams were nearby, as was shopping. We took a cruise with Wouter in his boat and we highly recommend this wonderful journey. We certainly will come back to this property when we next visit Amsterdam.

You really ARE in Amsterdam!

  • 5 of 5
Having stayed in the 'Lighthouse' apartment many times previously, this time I tried out the 'Harbour House' and I now I have to say I don't know which is my favourite.

This unit has a particularly wonderful sitting area with massive couch that overlooks giant windows that open fully to reveal the canal views. On this occasion, the canals were full of birds and even a swan family with babies!

With a fully stocked kitchen and dining area, this apartment is very comfortable and quiet.

It should be noted it is a 'studio' style, in that there is no door to the sleeping area, but if you're single or a couple traveling together, that shouldn't pose any issue.

Unlike the 'Lighthouse' which has a huge bath/tub, this unit only has a shower, but that's about the only other difference.

I highly recommend this unit for any single or couple looking for a nice quiet residence within about a 10 minute walk of the centre of Amsterdam.

Wouter and Lisbeth are two of the most friendly hosts you will ever meet and consistently exceed my expectations and always make sure my stays are wonderful and memorable.

Top of the List!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I recently returned from a stay at the Island Apartments in central Amsterdam. The location of the apartments is unique in every aspect. It is a 15 minute walk, or a five minute bus ride (buses 18, 21, & 22) from Central Station, the heart of the city. However, the complex is situated on an island on the northwest side of the railroad tracks., and is like being in a small, peaceful, Dutch village, completely free of traffic and street noise. There are two lovely canals and iconic Dutch lift bridges visible from the floor to ceiling windows and glass doors in the apartments.
The professionally managed apartment complex is run by two individuals who reside on the premises. They are extremely personable and friendly, and cater to every need and want of the renters including helpful tourist advice, ordering tickets to online attractions, printing boarding passes, and providing airport pick-up and drop-off.
There is an Albert Heijn supermarket, an ABN-Amro ATM, and a tram and bus stop at Harlaamer Plein, a ten minute walk from the apartments. Tram 3 will bring you to the major museums and the Concertgebouw.
“The Harbor House” is a brand new, spacious (1100 sq. ft.) one bedroom open plan apartment furnished in a contemporary Scandinavian style. It is situated on the first floor of a modern building. The large windows and glass doors allow for plenty of fresh air and light. The European designed kitchen is large and is complete with the latest in appliances, utensils, china, and cookware. Special features of the apartment include two large flat screen TVs with multi-language programming, fast and secure Wi-Fi, a cell phone, and extensive brochures and maps of Amsterdam. There is also a washer and dryer in a separate utility closet.
Of all my recent European rentals, this is definitely at the top of the list. It is well worth the price and in all respects a true bargain.

Great Apartment in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 8 nights in this terrific apartment - great, quiet location, but within walking distance to all tourist sites as well as to a wide variety of shopping (organic as well as standard supermarkets), restaurants, etc. Tram to Museums (Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk, Van Gough) is a 5 minute walk. The apartment is ideal for an extended stay (although you can also book for only a few days) in Amsterdam & well-priced - romantic canal views, very comfortable, well equipped, tastefully and thoughtfully furnished and well maintained. . Owners live on the property and could not be more helpful, well informed or accommodating. They take pains to be welcoming hosts which adds to the enjoyment. Take a private boat tour with Wouter!

Beautiful quiet place, very well located for great weekend

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for our wedding anniversary trip to Amsterdam. We were first taken by the size and space in this beautiful apartment. It's roomy, airy and contemporary and is perfect for couples. It has everything you will need and more with a lovely waterfront view. We were also taken with the brilliant help Wouter and Liesbeth were with anything we needed. They even rescued our anniversary night by organising a good restaurant as everywhere of any quality was booked. (Source your restaurant a couple of weeks before coming if thats your thing).
Amsterdam is a great city and we felt like we lived in the place for the weekend. The apartment is located in a corner of the city centre that is lovely and quiet, yet a few minutes walk away from Jordaan and the hustle, bustle and fun. We just had brilliant fund weekend!
I have stayed in many properties and we could not recommend this place enough.

Additional Location Information

Neighborhood & Location / Rates / Extra Services


NEIGHBOURHOOD / LOCATION 


I will give you some information about our location in relation to the rest of the city. 
First of all, our neighborhood is still part of the Centre of Amsterdam. It is a very quiet and safe 'little village' right next to the 'busy' part of the city. There are still a few little shipyards but most of the warehouses are converted into residences. The city is more or less built in circles around the centre. We are the western part of the centre, nearby Central Station. That is at this moment I think the most popular part. 
Next to our apartment lies the famous Jordaan. The Jordaan is a small part of the city, famous for the narrow streets with little shops, cafes and restaurants. We are divided from the Jordaan by a very nice shopping street. In this street there are two normal supermarkets (open 8AM/10PM), bakeries, a butcher and two organic supermarkets. There are all kind of shops, cafés, nice little restaurants everywhere around us. We think Amsterdam is more a “big village”. That is, the part where you want to be as a visitor. You can walk everything, but certainly on the bike everything is really nearby. 
The address is Prinseneiland 10, Amsterdam if you want to look it up on Google Maps. The street view is still from the period we were building, a few years ago. But one of the pictures you can click shows the finished building.
 Walking distance to the Central Station 15 minutes (bike 7 minutes), Jordaan 10 minutes (bike 5 minutes), Dam 17 minutes (bike 10 minutes), and Rijks Museum / Van Gogh / Stedelijk Museum (contemporary/modern art) 35 minutes (bike 20 minutes), Anne Frank Museum 10minutes (bike 5 minutes). 
If you want to explore more of the city we have bikes for rent and there are trams and buses to all parts of the city at a 4-minute walk. Apart from the general maps that we provide, we also made a map of our neighborhood. A selection of breakfast-/lunch-places/restaurants/supermarkets is pointed out on this map.
 Don’t hesitate to call or email us if you have more questions.
