Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in North Amsterdam - First Floor Apartment

Close to center, 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen, bathroom, terrace, 80m2

On the picturesque ancient 17th century Buiksloterdijk in Amsterdam North is our spacious apartment of 80m2 (860 sq. Ft.).

It is an oasis of peace and yet only 10 minutes by bike from Amsterdam center or 6 minutes by bus, 3 stops to Amsterdam Central Station, the middle of town. In fact you are much closer to the city center than most other places in Amsterdam.

The Buiksloterdijk used to be the place where the Dutch East India Company captains retired. The houses where called 'the captains heaven'. The water of the IJ river That runs trhough Amsterdam used to come right to the house. Now it is a polder.

It is the feeling of being close to the buzzing scene of Amsterdam and still feel like your in the countryside. That is why this location is one of the most upmarket and sought pa after locations or Amsterdam.

The view is beautiful. Overlooking the North Holland Canal. Known cycling and walking routes through rural North and Waterland go directly fits our house.

In front of the house is the Noorderpark and its indoor / outdoor swimming pool (50m).

PARKING IS FREE right in front of the house; the bus stop to Amsterdam Central is a few minutes walking away. The bus takes 6 minutes to get to the Central Station (only 3 stops). By car you drive through the IJ tunnel in 5 minutes to reach the center of the town (Waterloo) with ample parking garages.

By bike just follow the cycle path in front of our house and you are at the FREE ferry in 7 minutes. The ferry runs every 5/10 minutes day and night. The trip across takes 2 minutes. On the other side you are at the Central Station.

You could walk to the ferry usefull. It is a beautiful stroll along the canal NH.

Walking distance just 25 minutes.

Amsterdam North is the new buzzing district for art, film and specialty restaurants, zoals the IJkantine, Stork or Hotel de Goudfazant.

You have private access to the entire top floor of our dike house. The apartment has a its own entrance by stairs. On the front is the living room, with lovely views over the canal. There are two separate bedrooms with real king beds, both 1 80m x 2 00m.

At the rear is a sunny terrace. The sun gets there already early in the morning. Ideal if you want to have breakfast outside.

The apartment features a well-equipped kitchenette with an induction cooker, Nespresso machine and all other Necessary equipment. Free coffee and tea are provided.

There is usefull a large brand new and super clean bathroom with bath and separate shower.

The recently renovated apartment has free Wi-Fi and a flat screen 40 "television with digital cable reception. On request we can providence breakfast: fresh rolls, fresh juice, eggs, home made jams, cold meats etc. (€ 10 pp).

We are living in the house ourselves one the ground floor and are always available for help or questions.

Great apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place in Amsterdam that was central for touring North Holland by car and close enough to get into the city centre easily and this house fitted the bill. In a very quiet area (a few shops and a takeaway within walking distance), yet only about 15 minutes to get to Centraal Station. Hosts Renée and Ellen, who live below the apartment, were very welcoming on arrival and the apartment is very well equipped and clean. The only very minor point is that the description mentions a washing machine, whereas the hosts actually offer a laundry service. Would definitely stay again!

Schöne Wohnung, nette Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in der Wohnung sehr wohl gefühlt und waren froh wegen des regnerischen Wetters so viel Platz zu haben. Die Vermieter waren sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Die Wohnung war mit allem ausgestattet,was wir brauchten. Sehr bequem: der Parkplatz vor dem Haus. In die Stadt sind wir mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln gefahren. Insgesamt waren wir sehr zufrieden und würden jederzeit wieder die Wohnung mieten.

Super Lage!!

  • 4 of 5

Die Lage überzeugt. Zentrum ist mit dem Bus schnell zu erreichen. Auto kann man direkt vor dem Haus parken. Wohnung ist großzügig und gut eingerichtet, nur der Geschirrspüler fehlt. Kann man aber drauf verzichten, da wir z.B. nur dort gefrühstückt haben. Vermieter sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Auf jedenfall empfehlenswert. Werden bei unserem nächsten Amsterdam-Besuch sicherlich wieder hier anfragen.
