The apartment is situated on the Prinseneiland. I will give you some information about our location in relation to the rest of the city.
First of all, our neighborhood is still part of the Centre of Amsterdam. It is a very quiet and safe 'little village' right next to the 'busy' part of the city. There are still a few little shipyards but most of the warehouses are converted into residences. The city is more or less built in circles around the centre. We are the western part of the centre, nearby Central Station. That is at this moment I think the most popular part.
Next to our apartment lies the famous Jordaan. The Jordaan is a small part of the city, famous for the narrow streets with little shops, cafes and restaurants. We are divided from the Jordaan by a very nice shopping street. In this street there are two normal supermarkets (open 8AM/10PM), bakeries, a butcher and two organic supermarkets. There are all kind of shops, cafés, nice little restaurants everywhere around us.
We think Amsterdam is more a “big village”. That is, the part where you want to be as a visitor. You can walk everything, but certainly on the bike everything is really nearby.
The address is Prinseneiland 10, Amsterdam if you want to look it up on Google Maps. The street view is still from the period we were building, a few years ago. But one of the pictures you can click shows the finished building.
Walking distance to the Central Station 15 minutes (bike 7 minutes), Jordaan 10 minutes (bike 5 minutes), Dam 17 minutes (bike 10 minutes), and Rijks Museum / Van Gogh / Stedelijk Museum (contamporary/modern art) 35 minutes (bike 20 minutes), Anne Frank Museum 10minutes (bike 5 minutes).
If you want to explore more of the city we have bikes for rent and there are trams and buses to all parts of the city at a 4-minute walk. Apart from the general maps that we provide, we also made a map of our neighbourhood. A selection of breakfast-/lunch-places/restaurants/supermarkets is pointed out on this map. We also have “around the corner” a few very nice and good restaurants. We are happy to advise you and/or make reservations for you.
Shipbuilder an Publisher started recently a vacation rental apartment in their beautifull newly rebuild wooden boat house.
Wouter & Liesbeth Nieuwveld purchased this apartment in 1973
We practiced our professions on this location already for more then thirty years. The kids moved out to lead their own lives. We rebuild the old buildings with a separate apartment with it own entrance.
You are situated in one of the oldest parts of Amsterdam city centre, called 'the Islands'. It is a quiet little village directly connected to the live and kicking part of town with its shops, cafes, restaurants and cultural activities.
Je recommande cette location! L'appartement est magnifique et tout confort! Il est très bien situé. Les propriétaires sont très serviables et accueillants!
Wow, what a treat! My wife and I travel all over Europe and stay in apartments almost exclusively. This is by far one of the best places we have ever stayed. The location is great. Away from the hustle and bustle but just a short walk to the main sites such as the Dam Square. Extremely quiet. The place is clean, new, safe and modern. I especially enjoyed the spacious shower. The only possible draw back is that it is not air conditioned. This was not an issue for us because the temperature was very comfortable while we were there. The view of the canal is beautiful. We found several really good places to eat within a 10 minute walk. I highly recommend this place. Note that the bedrooms are on the ground floor and the living space is upstairs.
My husband, I and our two kids stayed in this ideal Amsterdam apartment for 4 nights. It was clean, bright, and had everything we needed. Our favorite aspect was the sunny great room with large glass doors that opened wide. With the doors flung open, we spent happy early mornings and evenings enjoying the happenings on the canal below us. The apartment is in a lovely quiet neighbourhood, within walking distance to the centre of Amsterdam but away from the hustle and bustle. Wouter is a ship-builder and the apartment features many clever ship-related design details. He was the ideal guide for an enjoyable canal tour, sharing many details of the city and the Amsterdam community. Our son will always remember steering Wouter's boat through the canals. Wouter was an ideal host who made us feel welcome and cared for. If we have the good fortune to return to Amsterdam again, we would return to this lovely home-away-from-home.
This was our first trip to Holland and we couldn't have had a better start than staying at the Boat House! There were four of us total. The house was very spacious and clean. The area was quiet which was relaxing after days of touring busy Amsterdam. Wouter gave us a map of the area which ended up being our "bible" to keep us from getting lost in Amsterdam. He gave us reccommendations for restaurants. Each place we visited was a delight and delicious! He gave us a mobile phone to use if we needed and it was a huge help. He had pamphlets for interesting sites to see and free WiFi if needed. Many wonderful sites were in walking distance, but if whe needed, he supplied bikes. Buses and trams are also close by.
Our cousins stopped by to check out our accomadations. They were so impressed that they took down Wouter's information to use for their American immediate family when they visit.
If I ever get a chance to return to Amsterdam, I won't bother searching for a place to stay. I will definately use Wouter's homes again.
We had the good fortune to discover The Boathouse in our review of listings suitable for a two week stay in Amsterdam. Ideally located on the tranquil oasis of Prinseneiland near the heart of the city, The Boathouse provides easy access to public transit, shopping, area attractions and the delightfully bohemian Jordaan district. With a full range of amenities and comforts, the property was as advertised and more. Wouter and Liesbeth's care in ensuring our needs were met through provision of maps, directions, guidance and recommendations for restaurants, sightseeing, vehicle rentals, etc. was sincerely appreciated. Wouter was kind enough to also supply us, unbidden, with a cellphone with a range of helpful contact numbers loaded into the directory for use during our stay! With a kitchen already stocked with all the essentials when we arrived, including wine, snacks, breakfast items, coffee and tea we were immediately able to begin to relax and enjoy! Wouter's offered airport pick up and drop off service is recommended - seamless and efficient. And by all means take in the canal tour he offers as well, very enjoyable! We miss our early morning coffees in the sun on our patio immediately next to the canal, taking in canal life and the park across the way. We're already scheming for an early return to this idyllic property in one of Europe's most fascinating cities!
The Boat House was recommended to us by friends and are we ever happy we took their advice! From the moment we were welcomed by the owner to the time we were dropped off at the airport we have nothing but kudos to both Wouter and Liesbeth. Upon arrival we found some lovely flowers, coffee, cookies and even a bottle of chilled wine. The location is perfect, we took advantage of the close proximity of Haarlemmerweg, a great street for shopping and dining. The tram and station are a stone's throw away.
The bedrooms are quiet with comfortable beds, the living quarters and kitchen area spacious with a great view of the canal. Don't forget to ask Wouter to take you on a tour of the canals, much enjoyed by all in our party. We would love to come back one day. Thank you both!
