About Anne van Beek-Rehder
Hello, I'm Anne! I was born in the USA, but have enjoyed living in Amsterdam for the past 39 years. My husband and I have traveled extensively in the past - US, north Africa, the Himalaya area, and much of Europe, and now enjoy our many interests here at home - art, music, languages, other cultures & philosophies, the art of horsemanship, and meaningful studies ----and I especially enjoy making our guests feel at home! Our guest apartment is the ground floor of our house, and has a private separate entrance onto the street, and everything to make your feel at home, in the 'Best of Both Worlds' - Nature at your doorstep, and Culture within easy access. I believe that both are needed, for an optimal quality of life. I will be happy to provide you with any help, tips, etc. that you may need, for a wonderful stay. Enjoy!
Anne van Beek-Rehder purchased this apartment in 1984
Why Anne van Beek-Rehder chose South Amsterdam
When my husband and I got married, we were living in the center of Amsterdam in a narrow street, and we were looking for a place in a greener neighborhood, where we could raise a child in a safe environment and still be in Amsterdam with all its interesting facilities and cultural offerings. Being so close to the Amsterdam Forest proved to be a wonderful choice. My family has enjoyed walking, cycling, horseback riding and picnics and so much more here, for many years. In the fall, the colors are beautiful, and you can enjoy a brisk walk in clean air; in winter, an unspoiled wonderland if it snows, and we have skated on the rowing course when it froze. And all this just right around the corner from our house, and from the ground floor which we now rent out as 'Best of Both Worlds' - come visit, and you'll see why!
What makes this apartment unique
All the above reasons made us choose this property for our home, and now the ground floor is for the enjoyment of our guests. We have loved living here for more than 30 years, and appreciate the broad views over the Forest from our spacious balconies op the top floor; you can hear the songs of many kinds of birds, because of the nearness of the Forest, and the sunsets from our upstairs views are fantastic. So many amenities are within reach - supermarket (Aldi) within walking distance (5 min), a fantastic pub/cafe just down the street (Anno 1890), and great takeaways (Chinese, Indonesian) and restaurants right in the neighborhood, just a few minutes walk from the apartment. By bike you can reach a larger supermarkt (Jumbo) and all sorts of shops, in 5 minutes. Or take a leisurely walk to these shops (12 minutes). We have 2 bicycles in the back terrace/garden, free for the use of our guests. You can ride the frequent busses (every 8 to 10 min.) into the center of Amsterdam - the museum quarter is just 15 min. away. So enjoy all the benefits of 'the Best of Both Worlds' and see why we love living here!
