About the property

Bright 1 bd flat with a wall of windows & french doors onto a beautiful canal

Our bright and comfortable 1bedroom flat offers a wall of windows and French doors onto a beautiful canal. Just feet from shops, theaters, and great restaurants, you can be in the center of everything. Enjoy a full kitchen, great views, and huge tub.

Beautiful apartment in the heart of the city with french doors opening onto Kloveniersburgwal canal. The location is excellent, only steps away from the lively Nieuwmarkt with an open air market and many restaurants, bars, and shops. Ten minutes walk to Central Station, Dam square, palace, and museums. Only a block away from the Red Light District, the artsy Zeedijk area, and other major attractions. Close to trams and metro if you want to explore farther afield.

The apartment is located on the 3rd floor of a monument building built in the 17th century. Ideal for 2 people. The living space is sun filled with its original beams and a wall of windows with views north to Nieuwmarkt and south to the Amstel. Although located in the busy city center, the apartment sits high above the bustling city allowing you to also enjoy the location from a peaceful distance. The bedroom is located in the back of the building and especially quiet. The bathroom has a wonderful over sized tub (very rare in Holland) with abundant hot water--especially nice after long walks through the city. The kitchen is well furnished (no oven).

Free Wireless internet!! DVD, cable TV, washer/dryer and radio. Please NO SMOKING as we have allergies.

You will have private use of the flat. Make yourselves at home. There's coffee and tea in the kitchen and bubble bath in the bathroom. Once you check in, you can enjoy the flat as your own home. I am available at any time to answer questions or offer suggestions on how to enjoy the city, but otherwise, it's your home away from home.

Cozy, lovely, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This flat had everything my husband and I needed to enjoy our 5 day stay in Amsterdam. The location was great, easy walk from train station and steps from metro stops, close to all the sights. The actual flat was wonderful because of the great view! We loved looking out at the canal and charming streets in this historic area. The hot water worked fabulously, the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed and the beds were comfortable. There were lots of stairs to get to the flat but it was manageable, even with our suitcases. The owner had great communication and was helpful. We highly recommend this flat!

Sarahs unit in Centrum Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

The unit was amazing. Very comfortable, great TV, great Internet. Central to all locations in Centrum Amsterdam within walking distance.

Unit is on the 4th floor. Stairs are a little steep for large pieces of luggage. No oven to bake.4 gas burners to cook. Refrigerator is small and has no freezer.

Sarah and her property manager Iwana were very responsive to questions and details to make the stay very enjoyable.

A lovely apartment in a very convenient position

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this property. A nicely appointed apartment in a very quaint building and picturesque canal setting. Cafés, shops on doorstep and easy walking access to all attractions. Stairs not for the faint hearted, but a minor inconvenience. Excellent communication/ hospitality provided by owner and hosts.

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this wonderful, charming apartment in an old canal house. It is located in the the middle of everything--we walked everywhere--yet quiet at night with the bedroom being in the back of the house. Communications and check-in were excellent.

Nov 2015 Stay

  • 5 of 5

Sarah's flat was the perfect spot for our (3 adults) visit to Amsterdam. It was very comfortable, quiet, had all amenities, and was ideally located. The best surprise was the view - lovely street view of the canal and the people and bikes passing by. Sarah was most helpful in providing advance information and travel advice. She was also great in arranging a last minute change in the key transfer when our flight was delayed. Thank you for sharing your home Sarah:)

Guestbook comments from the manager

The flat is absolutely gorgeous. It faces a canal, and you can open up the large Juliette balconies, stare at the canal, and "people watch" from your balcony. The view is just amazing. The location is fantastic; you are two streets past the red light district, which is a very busy place in the evenings. It is also steps away from local shops, restaurants, bars, a brewery, a Stach bakery right underneath you (amazing fresh breads, pastries, and waffles...and even wine for reasonable prices). We never used the metro, b/c the flat is close to everything. Sarah has thought of everything: there are 50 or so towels for you to use, shampoo and other toiletries, an international charger, an emergency kit, hairdryer, you name it! The bathroom and the entire flat is in a lovely 16th (or 17th?) Century canal home, but it has been renovated inside so it is very modern - the bathroom, the washing machine...nothing felt "old" but very modern. Sarah's decorations are superb, making you feel you are in a chic SOHO apartment, but in Amsterdam! Thank you Sarah, for allowing us to stay in your flat! It MADE our stay in Amsterdam.
