House in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Welcome to our lovely home!
It's located in the West part of Amsterdam close to the city center as well as to the main roads. It's in a quiet neighbourhood with no parking fees and with the ability to park the car in front of the house. Shops and public transportation are very nearby and the city center is just 30 minutes away by tram. Excellent for families with small children and ideal for those who both like the opportunity to be able to relax at home and to easily enjoy all the things that the city of Amsterdam and the rest of Holland offers.
Because we have Small children the facilities in our home are ideal for young families. We don't smoke in our home. Our house has three stories and can facilitate max six people.
At ground level there is the kitchen with a lot of modern facilities and a dinner table that can easily seat 6 people. The living room is spacious and you can relax, play the piano or watch HD TV with lots of international channels and  a DVD player.
At the first level there's the master bedroom for two with a flat screen TV. The bedroom of our daughter has a bed that you can make into a double bed. The bath room has a big bath tub with a shower and a second toilet.
At the second level there's the guest suite with two beds. There's also the washing machine, the dryer and a small study corner.
The big back yard is on the sunny SouthWest side. The small play house and sand box in our garden are very popular among all the young children. In the summer we inflate the swimming pool, heat up the BBQ and put the garden seating set out in the garden. So while the children are playing you can relax in  the garden for hours.
