Amsterdam Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Bright 1 bd flat with a wall of windows & french doors onto a beautiful canal

Our bright and comfortable 1bedroom flat offers a wall of windows and French doors onto a beautiful canal. Just feet from shops, theaters, and great restaurants, you can be in the center of everything. Enjoy a full kitchen, great views, and huge tub.

Beautiful apartment in the heart of the city with french doors opening onto Kloveniersburgwal canal. The location is excellent, only steps away from the lively Nieuwmarkt with an open air market and many restaurants, bars, and shops. Ten minutes walk to Central Station, Dam square, palace, and museums. Only a block away from the Red Light District, the artsy Zeedijk area, and other major attractions. Close to trams and metro if you want to explore farther afield.

The apartment is located on the 3rd floor of a monument building built in the 17th century. Ideal for 2 people, but can accommodate 4 - the sofa converts to a double bed for more room. The living space is sun filled with its original beams and a wall of windows with views north to Nieuwmarkt and south to the Amstel. Although located in the busy city center, the apartment sits high above the bustling city allowing you to also enjoy the location from a peaceful distance. The bedroom is located in the back of the building and especially quiet. The bathroom has a wonderful over sized tub (very rare in Holland) with abundant hot water--especially nice after long walks through the city. The kitchen is well furnished (no oven).

Free Wireless internet!! DVD, cable TV, washer/dryer and radio. Please NO SMOKING as we have allergies.

You will have private use of the flat. Make yourselves at home. There's coffee and tea in the kitchen and bubble bath in the bathroom. Once you check in, you can enjoy the flat as your own home. I am available at any time to answer questions or offer suggestions on how to enjoy the city, but otherwise, it's your home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The flat is absolutely gorgeous. It faces a canal, and you can open up the large Juliette balconies, stare at the canal, and "people watch" from your balcony. The view is just amazing. The location is fantastic; you are two streets past the red light district, which is a very busy place in the evenings. It is also steps away from local shops, restaurants, bars, a brewery, a Stach bakery right underneath you (amazing fresh breads, pastries, and waffles...and even wine for reasonable prices). We never used the metro, b/c the flat is close to everything. Sarah has thought of everything: there are 50 or so towels for you to use, shampoo and other toiletries, an international charger, an emergency kit, hairdryer, you name it! The bathroom and the entire flat is in a lovely 16th (or 17th?) Century canal home, but it has been renovated inside so it is very modern - the bathroom, the washing machine...nothing felt "old" but very modern. Sarah's decorations are superb, making you feel you are in a chic SOHO apartment, but in Amsterdam! Thank you Sarah, for allowing us to stay in your flat! It MADE our stay in Amsterdam.

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this wonderful, charming apartment in an old canal house. It is located in the the middle of everything--we walked everywhere--yet quiet at night with the bedroom being in the back of the house. Communications and check-in were excellent.

Nov 2015 Stay

  • 5 of 5

Sarah's flat was the perfect spot for our (3 adults) visit to Amsterdam. It was very comfortable, quiet, had all amenities, and was ideally located. The best surprise was the view - lovely street view of the canal and the people and bikes passing by. Sarah was most helpful in providing advance information and travel advice. She was also great in arranging a last minute change in the key transfer when our flight was delayed. Thank you for sharing your home Sarah:)

De superbes vacances.

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est vraiment très bien situé, en plein centre, près d'une place avec marché et supermarché et ce qui est vraiment très pratique près du métro.Mais le must c'est le charme du canal vu du salon et le calme. Je recommande cet appartement très chaleureusement.

Quick Vacation Getaway

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I traveled to Amsterdam and rented Sarah's apartment. It looks exactly as the pictures and was very comfortable and pleasant. The neighborhood was great and the building has so much architectural charm. So much nicer than staying in a hotel! The location was absolutely perfect and we were able to walk to most places. (Trams and trains also very close by.) There are lots of restaurants, shops, groceries, ATM, and pubs nearby. I loved being able to open the French doors and listen to the Church bells. The apartment had everything we needed and Sarah was so easy to make arrangements with. I definitely hope to return!

Comfortable, Central and Close

  • 5 of 5

We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and to say the least we had a blast. A major reason for our great time in Amsterdam was this comfortable, centrally located apartment. We were traveling by train so access to the train station was an easy ten minute walk. The many restaurants, shops and bars were at our fingertips as was access to the trams and buses

The apartment had just the right amenities making it very comfortable and cozy making it easy to relax if you wanted time away from the incredible activity on the streets and canals.

The view from the french doors was like being in a tree house offering a great perspective to the architecture, canals and streets.

This place is highly recommended.

Home for a week

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Amsterdam to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary and wanted a convenient location with good amenities

All expectations were met with this apartment...absolutely perfect location not only for convenience to Amsterdam's historic center but also public transportation and just the right comfortable amenities ( washer/dryer, kitchen, etc.)

So many fond memories were made opening the French doors and listening to church bells and viewing the robust Amsterdam city life... It was incredible

This vacation is etched in our hearts as one of the best... part of this memory is attributed to this comfortable, convenient to get to apartment

Thank you Sarah
