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

Old Center Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

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.?

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.

Beautiful quiet place, very well located for great weekend

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.
