Overview

About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This canal house on the Prinsengracht (100 square meters more than 1,000 square feed) is completely renovated. We bought the apartment six years ago and everything is new. As our apartment is located at a corner, there are 7 big windows overlooking the cannels which makes the apartment unique!

The apartment contains:

- Spacious master bedroom including bathroom (with bath, shower and toilet)

- Bedroom with two single beds that can be put next to each other including bathroom (with shower)

- Open kitchen

- Spacious living room including high def. TV

- Separate toilet

- Fireplace

- New beds and furniture

- Wireless unlimited internet

- New modern kitchen with everything you need including American fridge

- Wooden floors

- Double glazed windows (although you you don't need it because it's a quit area)

- Washing machine / dryer

- Towels, sheets, dishes etc.

- Nespresso coffee machine

Our apartment is in the centre of Amsterdam on the South part of the canals near the 'Spiegelgracht' where all the art galleries are.

It is located 2 minutes from the 'Leidseplein';

The 'Leidseplein is very crowded both throughout the day and night. When the sun is shining, the terraces quickly become filled. Street performers entertain the public, with acrobatic acts and music. At night the crowd changes: Amsterdammers go out here to celebrate, and to visit the theatres, cinemas and clubs. It is also possible to rent bikes at the Leidseplein, which you can store in our bicycle room.

On February 1, 1999, the Dutch government decided to qualify the inner city, the canals of Amsterdam, as a monument, a protected inner city view. The girdle of canals (ranging from the Singel Canal up to the Prinsengracht Canal) is a historically important part of this region, and it is one of the city's most attractive sights.

The girdle of canals starts at River Amstel and ends at Brouwersgracht. One third of the houses along the canals (grachtenhuizen) were built before 1850. During the 17th Century the city extended its boundaries, and canals were shaped in a girdle around the oldest part of Amsterdam to accommodate wealthy tradesmen and burghers. First the Singel Canal was dug out, then the Herengracht, Keizersgracht and, last of all, Prinsengracht.

About Cazijn

We both are fond of Amsterdam, but still like to travel to all parts of the world. We both are enthusiastic sport players (field hockey, tennis, running and golf). Our children (Floris, 5 years and Lily and Isabella, both 3 years) are our newest hobby together with our silver Labrador dog Muis (Mouse in Dutch).

Overall excellent

  • 4 of 5

The Canal House has an incomparable location: around the corner from museums and near the lovely park, yet away from the congested center city. And, the view of the canal and its never ending “theater” is very entertaining. The kitchen facilities are above average for those of us who like the fresh fish that you will find in the open air markets.

Even those (like me) of “mature” age find Dutch stairs manageable.

Amazing light-filled corner apartment—beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the end of the year and stayed for New Year’s Eve. We were hoping for snow and skating, but got rain. But what a wonderful place to stay in such weather. I was quite happy to drink tea near the fire and watch the people watch out the huge windows that look out at the canal. The owner was there when we arrived to show us around—AND he took our suitcases up the stairs to the apartment, which was so nice. The high ceilings were great, there were hardwood floors throughout, and it was very stylishly decorated. Like it could be in a magazine. Full kitchen too, nice and cozy to stay in and cook instead of going out for every meal. It was very near the museums and also groceries and cute shops. For New Year’s Eve, we had an amazing view of fireworks that people in the neighborhood set off. A crazy amount of fireworks. Unforgettable. Highly recommend staying here:)

Little Gem on the Prinsengracht

  • 5 of 5

I honestly can't say enough good things about this lovely apartment rental. Right from the start, Cazjin was warm, personable and helpful and carried our luggage up the two flights of steps for us. But the apartment itself is a little gem of beautiful location, views of the canal and the houses across the street from the corner windows, along with decorating touches found in fine boutique hotels. The layout was excellent for two adults but could have easily accommodated others. The apartment is centrally located and we walked everywhere. We enjoyed the apartment so much and as it was a time for us to rest up a bit before launching onto Africa, we spent many afternoons and evenings curled up with good books in the sitting room. We came away loving Amsterdam in the winter and this little gem of an apartment in particular.
