MAX 2 ADULTS! (with or without kids): semi-detached house to yourselves in a quiet oasis within 20 minutes cycling/by public transport from the historical canal zone. The best of both worlds.

The space

Semi-detached house (no neighbours above or below) with 350 m2 garden in a quiet, park-strewn residential area within 4 kms from the city centre. We welcome couples with or without children. Please note that our house is NOT available for more than two adults.

The living room (28 m2) with adjacent open kitchen (24 m2) have windows/doors facing east and south leading to the garden, which is surprisingly big by urban standards (350 m2). Enjoy breakfast in the morning sun! In fact the place has an almost rural atmosphere, facing the school vegetable garden across the canal.

The double bed in the master bedroom measures 200 x 175 cm. The double bed in the second bedroom measures 200 x 140 cm.

The house is situated at the end of a cul-de-sac, so there's zero traffic. There is a free private parking (on request) in front of the house at no extra charge. Charging point for electric car available.

We have 2 to 4 complimentary bikes at your disposal.

Guest access

Our guests have the house + garden all to themselves. On the first floor one or two bedrooms plus the bathroom are reserved for them. All other rooms are private and locked.

Interaction with guests

We communicate best in English (and Dutch of course;-), but also in Spanish, Italian, German, French, and (just a little bit of) Bahasa Indonesia.

Email or text us any time if you have any questions. We have a local caretaker for immediate action if necessary.

Other things to note

The exterior of our house is surveyed by security cameras. The images are stored and can be checked in case of burglary or other calamities.

This was a very nice home. The garden was absolutely beautiful with its little canal. I loved the canal with the ducks and geese floating by. The WIFI was strong. It was a 5 minute walk to public transportation; in particular Tram #14 takes you straight into the center of Dam Square. We also took bus 80 which goes to Haarlem and Zandvoort. The place was clean, beds were comfortable, the kitchen was fully equipped to make meals, the shower was great, and it was nice to have a half-bathroom on the ground level. The host was out of town, but she kept in regular contact with me, plus she had a friend that met us to assist us. We had a wonderful stay.

Ilse's house is very cozy. Have a main identity which for me is the better part of airbnb. And she is a person very, very likeable, she gave to us some very good tips. Her house have a great localization, in spite of be far of down town is very near of a metro station and has a lot of bus line near. I really recomend.

Ilse's house was perfect for my family (2 adults and 2 three year olds). Ilse was so helpful in getting everything arranged for us while she was on holiday herself, and gave us loads of family-friendly recommendations for what to do in Amsterdam which was much appreciated. She also recommended the amazing Warung Solo for fantastic Indonesian food! The space was great and the house provided everything we needed. We'd love to visit again.

Hi Gillian, I am glad you were happy in our house. I love your review about Warung Solo . Maybe we can meet one day when you come back with your three guys! Of course that is what I hope for. Thanks again for leaving the house behind so tidy. Have fun with your future travels, Ilse

This journey in Amsterdam in this house was perfect. The house is so pretty with a big garden, along a canal, fully equipped. Ilse and her husband are really nice. They gave us tips about good places to shop and to visit. The beds are perfect. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you!

Ilse is a very nice person. She has been worried about us since days before we travelled to Amsterdam, trying to find out good things to do in the city according to what we wanted to do. The house is just perfect!! is much better that what I first saw on the pictures. The garden is huge and there is a lovely canal through. Perfect to have breakfast and lunch there. A big and quiet house with a big living room and a confortable room and bedroom. Everything was sooo clean ! A full equipped kitchen which they let us use. Free and safe carpark just in front of the house. She knew we wanted to rent a bike so she let us use their bikes. That was great because that way we could cycle from home to the city centre ( only 20 minutes and a very very easy way). Of course I will go back there if I travel to Amsterdam again!! :)

Hi Sara, It was nice to have you and your friend as our very first guests - thank you for your enthusiasm! In the mean time we've added some smaller, adjustable bikes to our bicycle fleet, especially for Spanish people :-))) Every host would be delighted with guests like you! Hope to see you back!

Très agréable maison au bord du canal avec joli jardin. Nous avons pu garer notre voiture devant la maison et avons utilisé pendant tout le séjour les vélos mis à notre disposition, nous étions à 15 mn du centre. Les transports en communs sont à côté. Vous vous sentirez comme chez vous chez Ilse !!
