The space

This first floor apartment is ideal for a family with children, or a group of friends wanting to explore Amsterdam. The location on a corner offers you a panoramic view of de Baarsjes in Old-West, Amsterdam's best kept secret. Both peace & quiet and bustle & excitement are literally around the corner. Walk two minutes in one direction and you enter the beautiful Rembrandtpark, just behind the house. Walk two minutes the other way and you will hit the Mercatorplein, with a big supermarket and other shops, an underground car park and a bus and tram stop connecting you swiftly to the rest of Amsterdam. For food as excellent as it is affordable, you can stay in the neighbourhood. On the Mercatorplein itself there is restaurant Zurich, the surrounding streets offer Café Cook, Speykervet and other great venues. Getting out of the city is just as easy: the A10 West-ringroad and train stations Lelylaan and Sloterdijk are very close. Your neighbours are a colourful mix from all over the world and from all generations. Whenever the weather allows it, they will share a drink and good conversation in front of their houses, while the children play safely on the wide pavements.

Light and airy living room with an open kitchen and dining table seating eight. Two bedrooms – a smaller one with a double bed and wardrobe, a bigger one with a double bed and a single loft bed, large built-in wardrobe, working table and swivel-chair. Bathroom with toilet, shower and washing basin with mirror.
