Waterfront maisonette in quiet part of center Amsterdam, Netherlands

Our house in situated in the center of Amsterdam at the Westerdok on a island called 'Bickers Eiland'. The view is over the water of the 'Westerdok'. The neigborhood is historical, safe and very suitable for a evening walk in the scene of photograper Jacob Olie and the painter Breitner.
The area is called 'Westelijke Eilanden' and is 10 minutes walking from the central station. The train brings you to Schiphol Airport in 15 minutes.
The Haarlemmerstraat is just around the corner; a trendy and varied neighbourhood with an arthouse cinema, galleries, many restaurants, grocery stores and a (whole foods) market on saturday and wednesday. A nice walk (10 to 20 min.) will bring you to the Jordaan, the Westerkerk, the Anne Frank house or the Westerpark.
The house is a maisonette (120 square meters), situated over 3 floors in a nice building with a shared garden. You can stay with maximum 5 persons in our house. Our house includes a private parkinggarage!
 
WALKING FROM CENTRAL STATION
From Central station you walk about 20 minutes. If you arrive at Central Station, exit on the city side. (Walk in the hall on the ground floor toward 'spoor 1' that will lead you to the exit on the city side, spoor 14 is the back side) Outside you turn right. Walk along the taxis and parkingboat for bikes until you see at your left a small bridge for bikes and pedestrians crossing the water. Cross the bridge then turn right, walk through a small tunnel, turn right again and enter into a small shopping street called the Haarlemmerstraat. Continue on this street and the street is then called the Haarlemmerdijk (eventually you will see the supermarket 'Albert Hein at the left). Continue straight ahead along the Haarlemmerdijk until the first crossing turn right at the 'Coffee Company' into the Buiten Oranje straat. Go straith ahead, under the train tracks to the Grote Bickersstraat. Our street; Bickerswerf is at the right, you can enter our street only by foot (our house is the left building). Anyone can direct you to the Bickersisland in case you get lost.
