A very special designed House. Contains 3 floor levels, 2 outside terraces, 1 spectacular view on the open Water and floating homes, A Fireplace and all of this just 10 minutes from Central Station!
I love my absolute unique house. It is 150 m2 and has 3 floors, 2 outside terraces, and superb views over open water all around. At only 10 minutes from the city center you can barbeque at sunset and see all kinds of sailing ships float by. The modern house is built on stilts above the water and is connected to the dike with a castle bridge. I have installed a perfectly functioning wood burning stove which is a pleasure to use. It is built in a much visited architectural concept of floating on the water houses. IJburg is Amsterdam's newest Neighborhood and contains many innovative architectural features that will attract your attention, in walking distance you find Amsterdam's biggest warehouse filled with Dutch Design.
First floor: The house has a very open concept. You enter on the first floor which (email hidden) island where you can dine with your family and friends. There is also a large dining table with 6 chairs. As you can see on the pictures the windows are from ceiling to floor 3 meter in height, so lots of natural light comes flooding in. You can open the doors to let in the air and enjoy feeding the ducks which come floating to the house while you are having breakfast. There is an outside terrace with 2 benches and a large table, a barbecue is available to enjoy dinner and beautiful sunsets. This first floor also has a small bathroom with toilet.
Second floor: contains 4 large sliding doors that can create either one big open space or 2 bedrooms and a hallway. Also the modern Bathroom with bath and shower is situated here. There are two bedrooms, the first bedroom contains a double bed which can be transformed into 2 singles. The second bedroom has the same double bed that can be transformed into 2 singles and and an extra high quality 2 person Futon, so 4 persons can sleep here. As my house has 3 floors its easy to take for example the Futon to the 3rd top floor, which creates than a third bedroom. Also the couch in the upstairs living room contains a couch with sleeping quality springs, so It can be used as bed for one person.
Third floor: is the top floor and has amazing views of the water around the house, you can see the nearby fishing village. This floor also contains a perfectly and very romantic wood burning stove, there is always some wood available for you to use. This floor has the large couch and some pillows and sheep skins to create the perfect relaxing atmosphere. This living room also has an large 20m2 outside terrace. Here I have a large 6 person lounge to relax. The terrace is perfect to enjoy some sunshine and take in the views of the floating community.
The house has all natural oakwood floors, and of course all modem amenities are available, WIFI, DVD player with lots of dvd’s, flat screen TV with multiple language channels, wifi printer, stereo with CD player + cd's, reading books.
Unique is ofcourse that you can have this kind of house and water setting only a few minutes from the City Center. From my front door you walk 100 meters to the tram which arrives every 5 minutes from 6.30 till 00.30. The tram takes you in exactly 11 minutes to the heart of the City (Central Station/Dam Square) and from here you can walk towards our most famous attractions like the museum square or the red light district. After midnight you can take the nightbus system which drives every hour, but a taxi from any point in the center to my house is 25 euro.

There is no Parking space available with the house, but paid parking is around the corner and the P&R parking is also very near and cheap.
I like to welcome my guests myself to hand over the key's and explain the details of the house, answer some questions and give some advice if wanted. In the house are maps and information available which show you some insider tips the highlights of Amsterdam. I have good written information on restaurants, bars, festivals, museums, places to go which are for must visitors just below the radar. Nearby is the City Beach Blijburg, ideal for swimming and lounging (restaurant and bar), campfire at night and good Jazz performances.

Only 12 minutes from Central Amsterdam by tram (every 5 mins to Central Station on the 26 IJBurg) but feels so different. The Dutch certainly have public transport sorted, all connected, very frequent services. We bought a 72 hour pass and it made life very straightforward.
House is spacious and warm and very easy to find. Incredibly quiet and tranquil location, after very busy days in the city. Only 4 years old and looks very modern, lots of glass . Stairs in the property are quiet steep and curved so if you had any mobility issues they may be tricky especially as the lounge is on the top floor. Views over the water are lovely.
Shops/supermarket (beware that the supermarket takes no credit cards and no Visa debit cards, only cash and Maestro) 1 tram stop further down and a good Italian restaurant (2 stops).
Frank is a very easy host and quickly responds to any questions you may have. It was a perfect base for us to explore Amsterdam and get a good night's sleep away from the noise of the city. If you want bustling nightlife etc then this area won't be for you. We were a group of ladies for a long weekend celebrating a 50th.

Wir hatten einen super schönen Aufenthalt in Amsterdam und haben eine schöne Zeit in der Wasser Villa verbracht. Das Haus ist ruhig gelegen und durch die gute Verkehrsanbindung nach Amsterdam ist man in nur ca.15 Minuten am Hauptbahnhof mitten im Zentrum. Das Haus ist hell und Lichtdurchflutet, durch die offene Bauweise über 3 Etagen wirkt das Haus sehr geräumig. Zum erholen nach einem Tag in Amsterdam lädt die schöne und sonnige Dachterasse ein. Frank der Vermieter ist ein offener und umgänglicher Mensch und hat uns im Vorfeld viele Insidertips über Amsterdam gegeben. Er ist sehr hilfsbereit und war bemüht das alles richtig Organisiert und in Ordnung ist. Wir haben uns in Franks "Villa on the Water" sehr wohlgefühlt. Thanks for all Frank.

Un accueuil tres sympatique, une tres jolie maison.
L'appartement était tres agréable dans un quartier tres tranquille. Tres proche du centre ville (10 min de tram et il y en a toutes les 4 /5 min), tres proches de la plage (à 10min). Le propriétaire nous a donné plusieurs adresses pour manger et bouger dans le quartier et dans Amsterdam.
Tres propres et tres lumineuse la maison est doté d'une litterie confortable. Elle est conforme au photo.

Rientrati da pochi giorni,abbiamo alloggiato presso questa bellissima casa di Frank,comoda confortevole e pulita.
Eravamo tre coppie e una neonata....anche se non abbiamo avuto modo di conoscere Frank,in quanto era fuori per lavoro prima di arrivare ci ha fornito una serie di informazioni di Amsterdam e della casa, sopratutto per effettuare ceckin e ceckout. È stato molto disponibile con noi in quanto ci ha permesso di entrare prima delle 14:00 visto che non era occupata. Casa è fornita di tutto biancheria ,e tutto ciò che è necessario per la cucina. Tutti gli elettrodomestici funzionanti. Una casa molto hi Tech con splendida terrazza ma che non abbiamo sfruttato un po' per la mancanza di tempo ma anche perché eravamo sempre fuori. La consiglio vivamente.

Kommunikation und Anreise problemlos. Frank hat uns einen sehr netten Empfang gegeben. Das Haus ist einfach der Wahnsinn, direkt am Wasser gelegen. Dreistöckig ausgestattet mit allem was man braucht. Man fühlt sich sofort wohl. 2 Min zu Fuß zur Tram Haltestelle Richtung Innenstadt und in der Nähe gibt es auch einen türkischen Laden und einen Supermarkt. Es gab keinen Lärm, die Betten sind super bequem und die Nachbarn sind unglaublich freundlich und fahren auch schon mal mit dem Boot am Esstisch Fenster vorbei ;-D. Ein super toller Aufenthalt. Nur zu empfehlen!!
