In our home we subtly try to make the rich history of Amsterdam come to life. Besides several coffee table books to get lost in, you will find throughout the house vintage items that each tell a tale of Amsterdam. From 16th century city plans that show the development of the canals, to an antique 1850’s first-class travelers bench coming from Central Station. Or from vintage school charts of Amsterdam’s Golden Age, to a salvaged 1780’s century prayer board of a church where seafarers went to pray before they left for their long voyages across the oceans. We simply love the adventurous history that made Amsterdam such a tolerant and easy-going city. If you can, read the illuminating ‘Amsterdam’ by Russell Shorto. We’ll have a copy at home as well.
There will be two rooms locked where we store some of our own stuff and supplies. We hope you will enjoy your unique private location.
Your privacy is respected. Assistance is available 24/7 in case of an emergency. The caretaker can be at the house in 30 minutes.
THE NEIGHBOURHOOD 'DE PIJP'
Just around the corner there are lots of small, really good restaurants (we’ll leave a list of our favorites!) and pubs with special beers (more then 100!) and wines. The 'Pijp' is a very safe neighborhood (also at night) with a mixture of small trendy shops, vintage shops and a traditional big street market. It’s only a 5-10 minute walk to the Albert Cuyp Market, the Museum Square art-district with the Rijksmuseum, van Gogh museum and Concert building.
There is a very large supermarket, just around the corner: the AH (Albert Heijn).
Next to the AH supermarket is a very friendly, reliable and good dry cleaning service and clothing repair.
Gyms can be found on several locations near our home. From fitness training to spinning to boot-camp. Also several yoga schools are nearby. From classic yoga to bikram yoga.
Prior to your arrival you will receive a PDF by email including all the necessary info on the apartment, check-in, transportation, things to do, bike rental, our favorite places for great breakfast, coffee, food and entertainment. etc.
Located across the street are several tram stops and the metro station ‘De Pijp’ that will take you anywhere in town. With metros and trams bringing you to Central Station, Dam Square and RAI within minutes.
Perfect connection to Central Station and Schiphol airport.
From Schiphol Airport you can take the train to Amsterdam Zuid station (ride of 7 minutes) and from there take metro 52 to metro station ‘De Pijp’ (ride of 4 minutes). Follow the exit towards ‘Ceintuurbaan’. From here it’s a 2-minute walk to your home.
Around the house there are parking places but like everywhere in Amsterdam, parking is expensive! (€6/hour).
More and more specific info regarding transport can also be found in the guidebook we'll send you.
