' Our apartment is situated in a house on the Prinsengracht, one of the most beautiful and lively canals in the city centre. Dated 1730 and fully renovated, it stands in the residential and smart shopping area called Jordaan. Jordaan is the most popular and historic part of town with small cafes, bars, restaurants, boutiques, and on Saturdays and Mondays organic and antique markets. The house has a spectacular view of the Nordenkerk (North church) and of many boat houses. Sunsets are breathtaking. Within walking distance of Central train station (10min), Anne Frank’s House (1 min), Damsquare (8 min), shopping streets (9 straatjes, Haarlemer street, Kalver street )(5-10 min) and museums (Rijks museum, Vangogh museum, Hermitage ) (20-30 min). To really see Amsterdam one needs to do a canal tour. We have our own small boats so we can arrange private boat trips - also in the evenings when most bridges and private and public houses are illuminated – or picnics on the Amsterdam canals. One can rent bicycles everywhere. Public transportation is close and car traffic is almost nonexistent. Amsterdam is a very quiet city compared to other major ones. '

We are a couple loves traveling and always trying to rent an apartments during our trips just to feel as we are living in that country. First thing we do is trying to find a local markets ,do shopping and cooking at our new home.So when we have the second apartment in the same building we decided to give this opportunity to our guests in the best part of Amsterdam.So our guests are being also our neighbors.It became a hobby for us while I am working as a dentist and my husband works as an engineer.
We live also in the same building so we decided that 2 apartment is to much for us and began to rent it to our guests since 2010
This is the most popular area called Jordaan with many small cafes and restaurants.During the day it is always alive with street musicians,boats or somedays with local markets .At nights it is so peaceful and safe and you hardly hear trafic although the apartment is located centrum centrum. It is 2 minutes walking distance to Anna frank's house and 20 minutes to the museums. There are many uniek shops around and 2 parks .Train station is 10 minutes walking distance. So you dont need any public transport. The view from the apartment is delightful with boat houses and the view of Norden church. All the day you can watch passing of boats on the prinsencanal.My favourite ritual is going to saturday market just across the house to buy weekly fresh flowers and fish to cook for weekend.We are sure you will also enjoy beeing here as we are enjoying since 12 years.
