Grachtengordel House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 6), Garden with BBQ, canal/ park view

This is a house you won't easily forget, and we love living here.

Our lovingly renovated 3 bedroom house is spread over 3 floors and measures approximately 160m2 (±1722 ft.2). We have a charming private garden in the back where we barbecue with friends all the time in the summer.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, a large dining room and living room on the ground floor, the first bedroom, spacious bathroom and laundry room are on the floor above. On the second floor you will find an additional 2 bedrooms, with a recently built bathroom with a bath.

Our house is located in the absolute centre (really the best location) of Amsterdam and overlooks a quiet, absolutely lovely green park. The Frederiksplein is about 20 meters from the beginning of the Achtergracht canal and just 1 block from the Amstel River (just a 2 minute walk and you can see the most beautiful theatre in Amsterdam, Carre!). The Utrechtsestraat, one of the best shopping and dining streets in Amsterdam is just around the corner and the Rembrandtplein is only a 5 minute walk away. Our street is quiet, but right around the corner it's bubbly and fun, and there is loads to do.

There is a supermarket 50m down the road, an excellent whine store, a great coffee place right next door, superb restaurants all in walking - well crawling - distance.

About Marijntje


We are Wouter and Marijntje, and we have two little girls named Josephine and Kiki. We also have a very cute, fluffy Australian terrier named Ozzy.

We absolutely love love our house, and we really think you will too.

You are always welcome!

Marijntje purchased this house in 2010

Why Marijntje chose Amsterdam

This is just the best location in Amsterdam! It's quiet, with a wide view of the park and a canal. The house is recently renovated, and has all the amenities you could wish for. We have 3 spacious bedrooms and two bathroom both with tubs. It's a very light and clean house. You can just stay in, sit in the garden or go shopping on the Utrechtsestraat.

What makes this house unique

Our house is in a quiet street (it feels like a nice village), but in the absolute centre of Amsterdam. Right around the corner is a very nice shopping street, with great ! cafe's and restaurants. We have the most beautiful view overlooking a park. It's easy to go places from our house as there is a tram station 1 minute away. There is even a supermarket 50m down the road!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic house! we really felt at home and we enjoyed the great kitchen, the wonderful bedrooms and everything in the appartment. the nieghbourhood is perfect, no too much turistic but close to everything you must visit in Amsterdam. Easly connect to the airport without spend money with a taxi. We never met the host but we share with her several emails and she gave us all the informations we needed during our prep and our stay. for sure if I will go again to Amsterdam I will try to stay again in this UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL HOUSE

Perfect Location, great for a family with kids

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely family home for 7 days at the end of April. We were two couples (myself and my husband, my parents in their 60's and our children ages 5 and 3.) The set-up was great - with one bedroom on the first level up and two more on the next. The stairs are steep - but it is Amsterdam! And our 3 year old did very well with them. The location was perfect with tram stops nearby and easy walking to the grocery down the street and other shops and parks. Our children enjoyed all the toys provided and the small park across the street. There is a sandbox on the sunny private patio in back as well. The kitchen is well appointed with everything you could need and the essentials such as olive oil, salt and pepper, etc. are provided, which is so helpful. The owner was friendly and helpful with suggestions for the children and even left us a buggy to borrow. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!

A spacious and comfortable house in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 12 days in this lovely home. It is within the horseshoe that is old Amsterdam yet faces a quiet park so is in a prime location: within walking distance of restaurants, museums, shopping etc. And yet with a real feel of home. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped. Loved it.

Spectacular in every way

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son, his girlfriend and a close friend of the family stayed for 7 days. There was ample room for all. The kitchen is wonderful, the dining room table is the centerpiece and gathering place of the house and the bedrooms are comfortable. The location is perfect. It's an easy walk everywhere and anywhere we wanted to go. To make the stay even nicer, there is a cafe (Two for Joy) a few doors up, a market next to it, bars right around the corner, and a tram stop across the park. The house, its amenities, and Stacy helped us feel (we wish) that it was our home. We had the best time.

A real neighbourhood feel

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house and location close to Utrechtse Straat. Owner was very responsive to our wishes and always available. We had to contact her a few times but everything was to our satisfaction in the end. Walk to lovely specialty shops and restaurants, grocery store, Artis Zoo, all museums. I would recommend this property. Steep stairs but that is par for the course in Amsterdam. . Our 2-year old was expert after a couple of days, however. Nice private garden, also.
