About our home

We are two young professionals, living in the center of Amsterdam. We are both Software Engineers and are working from home for the foreseeable future. We are looking for a classic home swap for a few weeks in Berlin during November/December. Our house can easily accommodate a couple or even a small family with two children.

We have a unique interior with nice colors and an aquarium in the spacious living room. Fully equipped kitchen. Clean and modern bathroom with rain and hand shower. The couch in the living room turns into a comfortable bed and 2 person's can comfortably sleep on it with full privacy. There is also a high rise queen size air mattress which is more suitable for one person but can accommodate two easily. There is high-speed wifi and you can work in the living room on the dining table. There are also two work desks in the bedroom that we use for our home office, comfortable IKEA office chairs and tables, the height of the tables can be adjusted to be able to work in standing position.

The apartment is professionally cleaned once a week.

Our place is very close to all the major attractions in Amsterdam, you can see on for yourself on the map. All the museums are within 10 minutes walk, public transport is around the corner, De Pijp neighborhood is also 5 minutes walk away, the canal ring is 15 minutes walk away through the beautiful museum quarter.

We also have a lovely small dog (10KG - Maltese & Shi tzu mix) named Darwin. He is quite social, quiet, and well behaved. For the classic swap, it will be great if you could take care of him when we are at your place or we could take him with us to your place. Alternatively, we can also leave him with a friend or dog sitter, he is loved by many of our friends here who would be happy to pamper him for a month or two.

Neighbourhood

Oud Zuid is a quiet neighborhood in the heart of Amsterdam. Everything that Amsterdam is famous for is at a walking distance from our place - museums, parks, coffeeshops, deluxe red light area, canal ring. Public transport (trams, buses, metro), grocery stores, restaurants are all in the vicinity.

>Home to some of the world’s best art museums, Oud-Zuid (Old-South) is one of Amsterdam’s most elegant and well-heeled neighborhoods, where impressive manors line leafy streets, and chic boutiques abound. From the splendor of Museumplein to the vibrant Vondelpark and the serene boulevards of Willemspark, the beautiful neighborhood of Oud-Zuid rewards the visitor at every turn.

De Pijp - right across the canal >: Bohemian De Pijp's narrow streets are lined with Middle Eastern eateries, old-school pubs, and cafes with sidewalk terraces. Gregarious stallholders at Albert Cuypmarkt sell Dutch specialties like herrings and waffles. In a former brewery, the multimedia Heineken Experience chronicles the history of beer making and offers tastings. Also in the area, Sarphatipark features English-style gardens with ponds and meadows.
