About our home

Our light and comfortable four bedroom house is situated close to the city center. It is fully equipped and suitable for daily family life (dish washer, washing machine, dryer, well-equipped kitchen etc. and even a piano and guitars). The house is very light, friendly and colorful and is divided over three floors; you will find the first large bedroom, bathroom, study and separate toilet on the first floor. The living room/dining room and kitchen are located at the second story. The master bedroom, 3rd and 4th bedroom and second bathroom are located at the second story.
The large bedroom downstairs sleeps two (one double bed), the master bedroom has a queen size double bed. The two other bedrooms have a single bed; it's possible to add another 'folding bed' in one of the rooms. Another bed can be put up in the study.
The house has four nice balconies and a big garden with a trampoline.

Sometimes, only our big our kids are away on activity camp. On these dates, 2 bedrooms on the ground floor may be available (one double bed, one with single bed, both a separate shower bathroom), which we could offer to a limited number of guest (+- 3) ) but then we (parents and small kids) would all have to share kitchen and living room with the guests...

Use of car and bicycles can be discussed.

We have a (truly hypo-allergenic!) cat living in and around the house. She's really sweet, will however not bother you, and is not allowed to sleep in the bedrooms.

Where is it?


Our house is situated in a quiet and very green area in the south-east of Amsterdam, close to the city center. Just around the corner is a metro/tram station from where a metro/tram will take you right to the middle of the famous Amsterdam center, with its canals, musea (a.o. Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum) and concert halls, in fifteen minutes.

In the vicinity of the house you will find a small shopping center with a supermarket, bakery, pharmacy and some small (take-out) restaurants.

In only one half an hour drive, you can find the beautiful and sandy dunes and beaches of the Netherlands.
