We live on the lovely Keizersgracht canal and you will find us on the corner with Utrechtsestraat, just two blocks south of Rembrandtplein. So you'll find plenty of local bars, restaurants, cafes and coffee shops just around the corner.
The #4 Tram stops just outside our front door, but there is no need to buy a Tram pass as we are within walking distance to pretty much everything you are coming to see. We also have some bicycles that we are more than happy to let you use free of charge. Just let us know when you arrive. It's a fun and safe way to explore the city.
Our house is the whole 5 floor canal-side building. It's an old building that's been decorated in an eclectic and quirky style. We have divided up our house into a few single and double rooms, both with and without en-suites and a few larger self contained units we call apartments. All The rooms/apts are off a common stairway and share the same entrance, but the room/apt is your own private space that you do not need to share with anyone.
We have converted our basement into a funky space that is perfect for chilling out in.
The main room has a couple of couches that open into double beds and some pillows and mattresses around the room creating a chill-out sitting area on the floor.
There is a fully equipped kitchen so you can prepare some meals and another bedroom tucked away in the back with a large screen TV.
You also have your own private bathroom with shower and toilet downstairs.
There is a computer in the room for you to use that is connected to the internet and a server full of movies and shows for you to watch.
Free Secure WiFi is also available throughout the building for you to use. Just ask us for the password when you arrive.
We also provide sheets and towels, so you just need to bring the soap :)
We live downstairs, so we are usually around if you need any help and advice or just to hang out and chat with.
*** During New Year's and Queen's Day we have a 4 night minimum stay ***
House rulesWe run a laid-back smoke friendly house. You are given access to the front door, so you are welcome to come and go as you please. All we ask is that you keep the noise and music down to a minimum late at night for the sake of our neighbours. Enjoy your stay and if there is anything that we can do for you, feel free to ask.

Reviews of this property
First the good points - Great location, easy to find, spacious area. On arrival Martin showed us around the apartment and explained how the projector and PC functioned. The kitchen was functional and the shower was warm.
The not so good points, as mentioned in other reviews there is a leak from the upstairs shower/toilet room that drips into the basement toilet. During our stay the we spoke with Martin who closed the shower off for the remainder of our stay. The cold water tap does not work in the bathroom so you need to brush you teeth in the kitchen. The apartment is in need of a good dusting and general clean through.
Overall, the accommodation offered good value for money and allowed us to have a central base while off exploring Amsterdam :-)
