About our home

My little house is bright and cosy. On the ground floor, my house has a livingroom annex kitchen. There is a sofa and a ding table. You'll find the bathroom with shower and toilet on the ground floor as well. Upstairs there is a large bedroom with a twin bed.

There is a shared garden with number 699 with whom also the front door is shared. However, that house is on sale for a while and there is no tenant right now.


More about us

  1. I'm 30 years old girl and live here on my own for one and a half year now. I really love the tranquility in this special part of Amsterdam. It used to be a village, but was almost swallowed by the city. Only the everlasting rights on the graves around the church made sure that this part wasn't touched by the cityplanners. At the same time, within fifty meters, there is the vibrance of the city. On my bike it takes 15 minutes to the Prinsengracht, where I work at a publishing company. The Spaarndammerbuurt, un upcoming neighbourhood with small bars and creative little shops, is on the other side of the Westerpark - ten minutes by bike.

    My boyfriend and I spend a lot of weekends here. Especially during spring and summertime, we like to have breakfast or lunch in the garden or the Westerpark. At night we go out for dinner or just a drink at one of the small eateries in the Spaarndammerbuurt, Bos en Lommer or de Baarsjes. We also go often to the diverse arthouse cinemas Amsterdam has to offer.

    I really like having a garden now and I've put some effort in planting some new plants last year. I would be pleased if you would water them in my absence. Feel free to use the garden, but please take also care to the good relation I have with the neighbors. No loud music in the garden and in my house please - its an old building and a bit thin-walled.

Where is it?


The house is a perfect base for exploring the city. It is a five minute-walk to the Sloterdijk train station (direct connections to Haarlem, Leiden, Utrecht and the beach) and it is even more close to tram 12. Within ten minutes this tram will take you to the Museum district (Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and Van Goghmuseum).

The direct neighborhoods are Bos and Lommer and Westerpark. Bos and Lommer offers supermarkets and everything you need to cater a daily meal within walking distance. It also hosts a couple of restaurants, lunchrooms and a very pleasant bookstore.

The Westerpark is a really nice park to spend your sunny days. Lots of people meet here to enjoy a lunch or dinner on the green fields. There is also a tennis court, a children's swimming pool, a children' farm and there is the cultural centre the Westergasfabriek terrein. This area with historical buildings hosts many restaurants, a couple of clubs and an art-house cinema.
