Beautiful Canal house with small garden in quiet neighborhood in centre of Amsterdam, Netherlands

 Hello Friends,
We are Stephan (59), Lishe (60). We have 2 daughters (Lotta 26 and Sarah 23; they are living on their own.Sometimes they come and visit us on holidays.

You won’t get a more centrally located spot in Amsterdam than our place in a gorgeous 17th century Canalhouse. It is on one of the famous canals in the heart of historic Amsterdam. Our guests like the beautiful view from our window on the canal. We occupy the basement (souterrain), groundfloor and the first floor of the building (stairs, no elevator). Three bedrooms, a bathrooms, two toilets, a well-equipped kitchen and small alley as our 'garden'. We have lots of flowers around our house and a so called 'geveltuin'. In front of the house we have a small terrace inbetween flowers where yu can have your breakfast or lunch looking over the canal.
The apartment comfortably fits a family of 4 and with an extra mattress we can accomodate a 5th family member.

The neighbourhood is called 'de Lastage' and it is a very quiet part in the center of Amsterdam. Although you are within 5 minutes in the vibration of the Nieuwmarkt with it's artistic cafes and restaurants. On Saturdays on Nieuwmarkt (2 minutes) is the famous organic market, which offers fresh fish, vegetables, fruits and flowers, all organic.Our house is at walking distance from Central Station and 15 minutes from the airport Schiphol by train.

Our home is an excellent hub for getting to know the city of Amsterdam with all its cultural offerings - Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Modern Art Museum, The Hermitage, Anne Frank huis, Jewish Museum, Rembrandthuis etc.etc. - and its surroundings. Ofcause you can go there easily with bikes as well.

Within a 30 min trainride you arrive on Zandvoort's beach, the beautiful city of Utrecht or the Zaanse Schans with its picturesque display of classic wooden houses. Within an hour you can visit The Hague, the modern architecture of Rotterdam, the windmills at Kinderdijk, take a ferry to one of the islands in the northern part of the country or visit the natural surroundings of the Oostvaardersplassen or High Park the Veluwe.
We have two cats and kindly ask you to feed them. We love pets and are more than happy to take care of yours if needed.
Check out some websites on Amsterdam-North to get a better impression of our neighbourhood:

Always available to discuss (long) weekends in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany or north of France.
