6 mins to center, FREE parking , quiet
|住所||Buiksloterdijk, 1034ZD Amsterdam, オランダ|
In very popular Amsterdam North on one of Amsterdam's ancient 17th century sea dikes: Buiksloterdijk, is located our just totally renovated apartment of 80m2 . It is a oasis of peace and yet only 6 minutes by bus to the Central Station. Only three stops! Although you are in Amsterdam North, you are in fact much closer to the city center than al lot of other places in Amsterdam. You are just behind the Central Station across the river IJ. Free ferries run day and night every 5/10 minutes. They bring you across in 2 minutes.
The Buiksloterdijk used to be the place where the Dutch East India Company captains retired. The 17th century houses where called 'the captains heaven'. The water of the IJ-river that runs behind the Central Station came up right to the house. Since 1870 it is a polder.
If you want to go to the city by bike, this is also very easy and quick. In fact we recommend renting bikes as this is the best way of transport in Amsterdam. Right in front of our house is a bicycle path. Just follow this path 10 minutes and you are at the ferry behind the Central Station. It is a beautiful ride along the NH Canal and the Noorder Park. You could also stroll along the canal to get to the ferry. This will take approx 25 minutes.
Staying on our dike is the feeling of being close to the buzzing scene of Amsterdam and yet feel like your in the countryside. Here you wake up with birds whistling in the morning. That is why this location is one of the most sought after locations of Amsterdam coming second after the canal district in surveys. There is nothing better than coming home to this quiet and beautiful spot after a tiring day of sight seeing in the city.
The view from the house is beautiful. Overlooking the North Holland Canal and the Noorderpark.
Amsterdam North is the starting point of numerous bicycle and walking routes through rural North Holland. These routes go right past our house.
Just a few kilometers away, along the North Holland Canal, you get to the Ilperveld, a bird sanctuary and nature park. It is possible to rent so called 'whisper boats' (electric engine) and tour this very special area. A very good idea if you feel like a pick-nick or a swim in summer.
An 18 hole golf course is just around the corner.
Amsterdam North is the where the artists live in Amsterdam. The brand new Eye film museum with the best terrace of Amsterdam is located here. MTV resides here, so is Universal. There are many specialty restaurants, such as the IJkantine, Café Modern, Il Pecorino, Plekk, Loetje, Stork or Hotel de Goudfazant. Many of these restaurants are located in old factory buildings of former shipyards and overlook the IJ river.
At just 30m there is a small café which serves cakes, muffins, juices and ice-cream. You can also get very reasonably priced meals at night.
A small grocery store is at 150m, and a Dutch Bakery at 300m. Also a large supermarket is close by.
Parking is FREE all day in our street. This is very exceptional in Amsterdam, where parking fees go through the roof.
The apartment consists of a large living area, a separate kitchenette with induction cooker, fridge, microwave and nespresso coffee machine.
There is luxury bath room with shower and toilet.
The apartment has 2 large separate bedrooms. One with a double bed of 1,80m x 2,00m and one with a double bed of 1,80m x 2,00 m that can be separated into 2 single beds.
Free Internet, wifi, is available. You can find a lot of maps, guides and touristic books about Amsterdam. As your hosts -we live in the house ourselves- we are very happy to help you with tips and online tickets and any other questions you might have.
Breakfast is possible on request. For this service we charge €10 per person.

The appartment was amazing, really comfy bed, lovely street and peacful area, with a supermarket nearby and basically 10 mins away from city centre by Bus 34 or 35. We were received really well by René, who helped us with the basic staff. Totally recommend it!!
We had a great time in René & Ellen's apartment ! They prepared everything perfectly and the apartement was really nice !
Our stay at" the first floor" apartment this last week was superb.The accomodation is very clean and comfy,in fact home from home.The beds and duvets are superb.The location is residential,but not far from the city centre on the bus,You can hire a bike and cycle along the river for about 10mins,and cross by free ferry to the rear of the station.We stayed for 1 week our daughter travelled from Vancouver to have a holiday with us.It worked brilliantly.There are several shops within a short walk,there is also a swimming pool across the street.The bus costs 2.80 euro for 1hr but you can buy 24hr.pass for 7.50eur this you can also use on the trams and buses anywhere to the city.We would love to return to Holland.We would not hesitate to stay here,and to recommend the apartment to anyone .Our special thanks to Ellen and Rene who are a luvly couple and superb hosts.Pat and Dennis and daughter Sue.
Very lovely house, clean rooms and beautiful interior. Quiet neighbourhood, but still close to the city-center. We didn't have a lot of time to spend in the house, but enjoyed it very much.
And last but not least: very nice hosts!
