First Floor Apartment Amsterdam

In very popular Amsterdam North on one of Amsterdam's ancient 17th century sea dikes: Buiksloterdijk, is located our just totally renovated apartment of 80m2 . It is a oasis of peace and yet only 6 minutes by bus to the Central Station. Only three stops! Although you are in Amsterdam North, you are in fact much closer to the city center than al lot of other places in Amsterdam. You are just behind the Central Station across the river IJ. Free ferries run day and night every 5/10 minutes. They bring you across in 2 minutes.

The Buiksloterdijk used to be the place where the Dutch East India Company captains retired. The 17th century houses where called 'the captains heaven'. The water of the IJ-river that runs behind the Central Station came up right to the house. Since 1870 it is a polder.

If you want to go to the city by bike, this is also very easy and quick. In fact we recommend renting bikes as this is the best way of transport in Amsterdam. Right in front of our house is a bicycle path. Just follow this path 10 minutes and you are at the ferry behind the Central Station. It is a beautiful ride along the NH Canal and the Noorder Park. You could also stroll along the canal to get to the ferry. This will take approx 25 minutes.

Staying on our dike is the feeling of being close to the buzzing scene of Amsterdam and yet feel like your in the countryside. Here you wake up with birds whistling in the morning. That is why this location is one of the most sought after locations of Amsterdam coming second after the canal district in surveys. There is nothing better than coming home to this quiet and beautiful spot after a tiring day of sight seeing in the city.

The view from the house is beautiful. Overlooking the North Holland Canal and the Noorderpark.

Amsterdam North is the starting point of numerous bicycle and walking routes through rural North Holland. These routes go right past our house.
Just a few kilometers away, along the North Holland Canal, you get to the Ilperveld, a bird sanctuary and nature park. It is possible to rent so called 'whisper boats' (electric engine) and tour this very special area. A very good idea if you feel like a pick-nick or a swim in summer.

An 18 hole golf course is just around the corner.

Amsterdam North is the where the artists live in Amsterdam. The brand new Eye film museum with the best terrace of Amsterdam is located here. MTV resides here, so is Universal. There are many specialty restaurants, such as the IJkantine, Café Modern, Il Pecorino, Plekk, Loetje, Stork or Hotel de Goudfazant. Many of these restaurants are located in old factory buildings of former shipyards and overlook the IJ river.

At just 30m there is a small café which serves cakes, muffins, juices and ice-cream. You can also get very reasonably priced meals at night.
A small grocery store is at 150m, and a Dutch Bakery at 300m. Also a large supermarket is close by.

Parking is FREE all day in our street. This is very exceptional in Amsterdam, where parking fees go through the roof.

The apartment consists of a large living area, a separate kitchenette with induction cooker, fridge, microwave and nespresso coffee machine.

There is luxury bath room with shower and toilet.
The apartment has 2 large separate bedrooms. One with a double bed of 1,80m x 2,00m and one with a double bed of 1,80m x 2,00 m that can be separated into 2 single beds.

Free Internet, wifi, is available. You can find a lot of maps, guides and touristic books about Amsterdam. As your hosts -we live in the house ourselves- we are very happy to help you with tips and online tickets and any other questions you might have.

Breakfast is possible on request. For this service we charge €10 per person.

First Floor Apartment is unique!

Eine tolle, ruhige, gemütliche Wohnlage mit vielen schönen alten Häusern. Mit dem Bus problemlos erreichbar. Mit dem Velo ist man innert kürzester Zeit im Zentrum, wie beschrieben. Dank der Wohnlage lernt man eine neue Gegend kennen. Die Wohnung ist perfekt. Nach einem vollen Tag im Zentrum geniesst man die grüne Oase hinter dem Haus. René und Ellen vermieten die Wohnung mit Leidenschaft. Auch das Frühstück war ausgiebig und lecker. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Herzlichen Dank. Gerne wieder

La quiétude du lieu et la grande disponibilité discrète de nos hôtes nous ont enchanté. Séjour très agréable quasiment en pleine "campagne urbaine" facilité par des liaisons en bus fréquentes avec la gare centrale d'Amsterdam, nous recommandons fortement cette villégiature.Merci à Ellen et René.

Eine schöne Wohnung bei netten und hilfsbereiten Leuten! Sie liegt ruhig, in fast schon ländlicher Umgebung. Man ist aber tatsächlich in kürzester Zeit mit dem häufig fahrenden Bus im Zentrum. Sehr zu empfehlen!

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Rene und Ellen sind phantastische und nette Gastgeber, die viele Tipps geben und sehr hilfsbereit sind. Das Apartment liegt recht zentral und ist doch sehr ruhig, die Ausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen. Kurzum: unsere Erwartungen wurden nicht nur erfüllt, sondern übertroffen!

Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das historische Haus in der idyllischen Umgebung von Amsterdam Nord ist authentisch und gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Lage ist entspannend und ruhig und doch nah dem Zentrum. Mit dem Bus fährt man nur wenige Minuten zur Innenstadt. Oder man läuft bzw. radelt entlang dem Wasser bis zur IJ und steigt dann in die kostenlose Fähre zum Hauptbahnhof. In der Nähe des Hauses gibt es einen Mini Supermarkt und ein nettes Café. Wir fanden den Aufenthalt toll!
