Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in South Amsterdam - 'Best of Both Worlds'

Perfect apt for easy access to central Amsterdam, but quieter restful nights..

'Best of Both Worlds' - close to nature (Amsterdam Forest park just around the corner), but also direct bus access to Museum District & central Amsterdam, in just 20 minutes (bus stop right near the house). Your ideal home away from home if you want a quiet night's sleep, but easy public transport to all tourist attractions (or use our 2 free bikes!). Ideal for business travellers for quick access to ZuidAs int'l business district, Amstelveen, and Rai congress center.

If you are arriving by car: FREE PARKING in the next block (Amstelveen)! Just find a parking space and you can safely leave your car there day and night. Parking within Amsterdam is expensive, so the direct busses and free bikes are a real plus.

I will meet you at the apartment and do the check-in, show you all you need to know about the apartment, and at the end of your stay I will meet you for the check-out.

You have all the privacy you want, with a separate front door, but my husband and I live in the rest of the house (the 2 floors above the ground floor apartment) and I work from home, so I am usually available to give you any advice needed about the apartment or the neighborhood, or to provide tips about what to do and see in Amsterdam. Just give me a call om my mobile phone.

I speak English, Dutch, German and French, and will be happy to help you in any way.

Enjoy your stay at 'Best of Both Worlds!', Guest Apartment 1090.

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!

Car: not necessary

If you love nature: a must-see, as a break from the busy tourist attractions of central Amsterdam, is the beautiful Amsterdam Forest park, just steps away from the apartment. By foot or by bike, a green paradise (or in the autumn, enjoy the fall colours!). Loads of active and less-active possibilities and special attractions. Information on the Amsterdam Forest is available in the apartment.

For lovers of modern art: not just the museums of Amsterdam are easily reached, but also the art offerings of Amstelveen: a quick bike ride or bus ride (10-12 minutes) in the opposite direction will bring you to the famous Cobra Museum (modern art: permanent collection of the famous Cobra movement, and various changing exhibitions of prominent modern artists), and several minutes walk further to the Van der Togt Museum, a hidden jewel of modern art (various guest exhibitions of renowned national and international artists, and fabulous permanent collection of modern glass, sculpture, bronze and paintings).
