About the building
These houses are called 'sibbel huisjes'. They were build in 1828 for the employees of beerbrewery 'De Gekroonde Valk', The Crowned Falcon'. A couple of years ago these houses were totally renovated.
About the neighbourhood
We live in a beautiful quiet street in the city centre of Amsterdam. The area, called the 'Plantage' neighbourhood, was full of warehouses in the 17th century. From our balcony you have a view on the old warehouses and sometimes you can hear the monkeys from the Artis Zoo, which is within a 5 minute walk from our apartment.

There are many museums just around the corner: the Maritime Museum, NEMO Science Museum, Arcam (Architecture museum), Hortus Botanicus, the Holocaust Museum, Hermitage, Tropenmuseum and the Jewish Historical Museum. Within 15min you are on the Museum Square where the Rijksmuseum (e.g. Nightwatch), Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum are based.
Food & Drinks? You can find lots of cafés and restaurants nearby like De Plantage, Bakers & Roasters, Brouwerij het IJ, Amsterdam Roest (city beach), Hannekes Boom and De Scheepskameel.
Shopping? Go to the the Czaar Peterstraat, the Javastraat or Utrechtsestraat.

About Our Family
Hi! We are a family of three: Maarten (34), Kimberly (31) and Otis (9 months). Maarten is a consultant and Kimberly is a marketeer in a museum, at the Mauritshuis Royal Picture Gallery in The Hague. We both love our city, culture & art and food & drinks. We also love to travel. We travelled via Intervac a couple of times and enjoyed it every time. For us it's an adventurous way to discover new places. Please contact us when you have any questions or if you'd like to make an exchange suggestion!
