Things to do

-Architecture. Amsterdam is a UNESCO listed city, with one of the largest old centres on the continent. There are thousands of impressive old buildings alongside creative feats of civil engineering. For a glimpse of the city’s medieval past, see the wooden buildings at Begijnhof and Zeedijk. The Canal Ring of course is astounding, with beautiful waterfront buildings dating to the Netherlands’ Golden Age.

-Vondelpark. In the summer there’s possibly no better place in the city to take a picnic than this park, set in South Amsterdam. It’s the largest expanse of greenery, and on sunny days is a fun and friendly spot to while away an afternoon. There’s some interesting public art here, including a piece by Picasso, and there are plenty of free activities for children and adults in spring and summer.

-Museums. This part of Amsterdam comprises the Museum Quarter, where many of the world’s best cultural attractions can be found. You can learn about the history of the Dutch relationship with diamonds at the Diamond Museum, or see the Old Masters like Vermeer and Rembrandt at the prestigious Rijksmuseum. Another of the standouts is the Van Gogh Museum, where you can see world’s largest collection of the artist’s work.

-Canal tours. You can’t visit Amsterdam without taking a trip on the canals, simply because it’s a fabulous way to enjoy the city. There are many ways of doing this – you could rent an environmentally friendly electric boat for your own personal tour, or simply hop on and off the classic Canal Bus. Three-hour-long dinner cruises are also available, offering a memorable cruise through the city at night.

-Cuisine. Amsterdam’s cosmopolitan character is evident in the wide spectrum of cuisines available. Highly recommended is Indonesian food, especially the rijsttafel – literally “rice table” – which is a selection of small dishes involving satay, egg rolls, vegetables and fruit, all served with rice. For something classically Dutch, see what you make of raw herring, which is in season from May to July.

Weather in South Amsterdam

Amsterdam has an Oceanic climate, and this brings mild and relatively damp weather for most of the year. If you visit your holiday apartment in South Amsterdam in the summer months then there’s moderately warm weather in store, with highs that often push the mid-20s. The period from April to August is also the sunniest of the year. Winters on the other hand are cool, but rarely bitter. Frosts are surprisingly unusual because the city is surrounded on three sides by water.

Travel to South Amsterdam

Holiday rentals in South Amsterdam are especially convenient to Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport (AMS), which lies to the southwest of the city. It serves as a hub for a number of important airlines, including KLM and Delta, and ranks as the fourth busiest airport in Europe. There are plenty of routes and airlines linking Amsterdam with the UK, flying from more than 20 airports across the country. Once you arrive you can catch a train, taxi or bus to South Amsterdam, and if you’re driving it’s just a short trip along the A4.

Beautiful

5 of 5
Was moved to another apartment on arrival but it was probably an improvement as it was utterly beautiful. Only downside was there was that the only bathroom was in one of the bedrooms, so I was often woken up by my housemate.

Perfect

5 of 5
Great appartnent, clean and well kept, friendly reception late at night with a few eats laid out for us on arrival then left to get on with it while only being an email away from help if required. Location was just perfect, on a main bus route between the airport and city centre and all roads had cycle lanes to get out and explore with the apartment bikes. 10 mins into city centre. Some local shops and a pub close by. Also on the edge of a large wooded park, great to get out for a morning cycle or run away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre! Defo recommend!!

Spacious and well equipped house

5 of 5
The house is well laid out over 3 floors, with the lounge, kitchen, diner really well equipped and nice comfortable sofa. We were a group of 4 men and having 4 bedrooms was a key selling point. Although 2 were single beds the rooms were very tidy and no issues whatsoever. The location is a good 20 minute journey to central Amsterdam but the Metro station is just a 5 minute walk. We paid for a 3 day pass €17 which allowed us to come and go, also using the trams. The house is terraced so not a place for parties or loud music but worked well for us to have a great long weekend, with a couple of nights in the City. My first experience of using HomeAway, I was a little nervous but I felt more comfortable with HomeAway guarantee and the fact Sacha is very quick to respond to messages. A great experience and very helpful hosts.
