Our apartment is on the third and fourth (top) floor of a typical 'herenhuis'. We have completely renovated it in 2012. It is a light and spacious (16o m) design apartment. On the third floor you will find the master bedroom, the big guest bedroom, a walk-in-closet, the studyroom, washing machine, dryer, the bathroom (separate bath and rainshower) and separate toilet. There is also a big balcony where you can enjoy the evening sun.
On the fourth floor is the kitchen, dining area, toilet, living room and again a big balcony on this floor.
The kitchen contains a dishwasher, microwave/oven, steamoven, cooker, and a fridge. We have a flatscreen tv and wifi.
There are 2 bedrooms, with double beds. But there are two more rooms where we can (according to your needs) organize extra beds, so that all persons involved in the swap have space (eg large families).
- Balcony, Cleaning service available , Dishwasher
- In home washer

Our neigbourhood de Pijp is famous for its architecture, Amsterdamse School style.
The idyllic Amstel river is around the corner, with lots of restaurants and cafes along the water.
We love it here, it is very lively with lots of parks within walking distance (such as the cute Sarphati Park), and close to the heart of the city, but not in it (too busy there).
The neighborhood can be compared to compare to Quartier Latin in Paris. There are all kinds of shops and good restaurants from around the world. Big, well supplied supermarket around the corner, as well as a nice bookstore, coffeeshop, groceries, bakers, deli's, drycleaning etc. The famous (daily) Albert Cuyp market is close as well.
Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum and the wonderful Concertgebouw, Stopera and the beautiful Vondelpark are all nearby (about 10 minutes by foot).
200 metres from our house there's a children's farm with lovely playground.
