Spacious family home with garden in the city of Amsterdam

We would like to welcome you in our bright, renovated 1920s house - three stories, 170 square meters -, a quiet and comfortable place in a vibrant neighbourhood.

The house consists of 3 large bedrooms, 1 study, 2 bathrooms with shower/bath, a roof terrace and a sunny garden. There's one 160x200 bed, one bunk bed (matrasses 90x200) a childrens' bed (80x200) and one extra bed (90x200)

You can enjoy restaurants, cafés, shops and an arthouse cinema within short walking distance, likewise playgrounds, a park, and a swimming pool. The house is situated on a green square, where kids can play. The neighbours are friendly.

We usually travel Amsterdam style: by bike. Feel free to use the bikes in our 'collection'. It takes 10 minutes to reach the city center. All major sites and museums are also easily reached by direct tram lines. If you'd like to go out of town, picturesque fishermen villages and natural swimming opportunities are all within biking distances.

We love living here with our two boys, enjoying both the charm of city life as well as the opportunity to relax in the green. We're looking forward to get in touch!
