Expanded description follows below, Click on More Details;

===========================================

This canal apartment is located on the top three two floors. Two flights of stairs are circular and one is a straight flight. One enters the Grand Sonnenberg apartment on the beletage, after climbing a set of stone stairs of half a floor level. All three floors have excellent views of the canals, and there is a bench on the porch as well as one on the canal side.

Behind the front door there is a hallway to the first set of circular stairs leading to a hallway on the first floor of the house. This hallway has a door that leads to the beletage of the Snug Sonnenberg apartment, it is only unlocked when both apartments are rented by the same guests. Practically every room in the house has its own adjustable radiators, it is quite easy to keep this house warm and comfortable in winter. As each room also has windows, it is quite easy to create a nice breeze in the house cooling it down in the summer. There are also fans available on the rare summer days that it is actually hot.

On the first floor there is a toilet in the hallway, and a door to the living/dining room. This floor has a beautiful wooden floor as well as beams supporting the floor above. In the front (canal side) of this floor there is a spacious living area with sofa’s (one is a sleeping sofa) and TV. This is a great area to relax after or before a day of exploring all the sights of Amsterdam. You will find an open kitchen and a large dining table that can seat 8 in the back of the floor. The kitchen is fully equipped except for a dishwasher.

It is not hard to imagine enjoying a spending an evening with a good diner and equally good conversations at the dining table with dimmed light shining from the chandelier. With ample heating present, the smells from the kitchen and friends swapping stories at the table, this is typically what the Dutch will call “gezellig”. The word “gezellig” is considered to be an example of untranslatability, and is one of the hardest words to translate. Some consider the word to encompass the heart of Dutch culture.

One floor up with the circular staircase there is the floor with one bedroom (twins) in the front, with canal views and the master bedroom in the back (optional with twins, on request). On this floor located in between the two bedrooms is the bathroom, with a toilet, sink, and a bath with shower. The front bedroom has a carpeted floor and the back bedroom a wooden floor, the bathroom floor is marble.

Lastly, of the converted attic floor only the front room is accessible for guests and has twins as well as canal views. The beautiful antique wooden roof-beams are visible here, instilling one with a deep sense of history that is present throughout the entire house.

Location description

The Sonnenberg is located in the canal belt in the part known in Amsterdam as the “nine streets” area. The nine streets area is well known for its plentiful boutique shops, many restaurants, and its beautiful canals. This area is comprised of nine narrow streets running perpendicular with the four major canals (Singel, Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht) of the canal belt. It is distinctly different from other shopping districts as there is a large diversity of privately owned shops and specialized shops.

From here there is a circular flight of stairs to the Living/kitchen level. The circular staircase continues up to a floor with 2 bedrooms and the full bathroom. From this last level there is a single flight of straight stairs up to the attic bedroom. The stairs are steep and narrow, as is typical for a 400 year old house. However with closed doors stairs are not accessible.

About Wytse

I grew up in the hospitality business, with my parents running hotels and/or restaurants. Since 2005 I have been actively offering short stay apartment rentals in Amsterdam. In 2008 I purchased the Sonnenberg and have been managing the property ever since.

I love to share my experience of the wonderful city of Amsterdam. In my opinion the best way to see the city is with friends on an open canal boat on a nice day or evening.

My properties all have short stay permits and I operate them as a registered business with the Chamber of Commerce, properly paying taxes both VAT and city tax. This ensures you will not wake up early in the morning to government workers dropping by to check on illegal activities.

Wytse purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Wytse chose Grachtengordel (Canal Ring Area)

The location is one of the most central in the city, and on top of that the property catches some great sun in the afternoon and is located on the most beautiful part of the most beautiful canal of the city.

What makes this apartment unique

- location

- view

- afternoon sun

- character of the building itself

This apartment is located on the most beautiful part of the Herengracht Canal within the Nine-Streets area. Within 400 meters of the apartment you can find many shops and restaurants. The shops are all of a boutique type, so no usual suspects in this area. The restaurants vary from good value student restaurants to top of the bill, and from Tibetan cuisine to soul food, from breakfast to deli take outs.

For children and adults of all ages there is a playground in the direct area, with climbing racks, swings. Must see Museums within about 15-20 minutes walking/tram include; Anne Frank house, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam Historical Museum and Canal House Museum. But there are at least 30 or 40 other museums nearby that are also worth visiting.

Without writing down an entire guide to the city of Amsterdam, this location will give you an excellent base to discover the many aspects of this world famous cosmopolitan city.
