We invite you to experience the authentic charm of a 19th century Dutch 'achterhuis'. The achterhuis concept is basically a little house in the back of a larger building.This achterhuis was originally used as an atelier for artists; famous for painting the widest canal of Amsterdam just in front of the building.

The space

The space is located in a beautiful, quiet street in the heart of Amsterdam. The space offers you a private, spacious and bright livingroom. When going up small stairs you'll find your private bathroom and bedroom. Linen, towels and shower products are provided.

People who will love this space- historians, romantics, people who want to stay in the historic center, people who like minimally furnished places and people who like old, authentic, quirky buildings.

People who might not - those of you who don't like too many stairs, or prefer modern looking or hotel room looking spaces.

Guest access

The entrance of the apartment is shared with us, we live in the other part of the house. There's a shared kitchen and doing your laundry is no problem. The kitchen is clean and fully equipped if you want to cook at night, but you would probably prefer to check out all those amazing local restaurants. We don't serve breakfast; beacuse we're out at 7 ( probably not your usual holiday wake up time :) but fresh fruits, coffee and our incidentally baked sweets are for the taking.

Interaction with guests

During the weekends we can personally welcome you during the day; check- in is flexible. During workdays you can arrive after 18h. Earlier we're not in the city so luggage can be dropt off in for example the lockerboxes at Central Station. Check out is always flexible.
We're easy to reach by airbnb app.

Thank you so much, Roos and Pieter. We chose this place based on its location, and it's ideal. In fact, we didn't need to take public transportation during our entire stay, the neighborhood is very tranquil and Centraal Station is perhaps a 10 minute walk. The apartment is very spacious, there's a great open feeling in the day room. All the amenities worked seamlessly and access to the apartment was very simple while the inside harks back to a simpler time. While Amsterdam is a big, busy city, we're glad we had such accommodating hosts.

Wonderful hosts, very discrete (see shared kitchen), location excellent, apartment spacious, very quiet but no view. Roos and Pieter are lovely hosts and communication was very easy. Had a really good 6 days with them. Thank you so much! Jürgen & Jojo

I stayed at Roos and Peter's apartment for 3 weeks while in Amsterdam for work. The place is gorgeous and even bigger and more private than described. You have your own "wing" of the canal house and we only met up while cooking together in the kitchen. Roos and Peter have their own living room upstairs so the downstairs living room, bedroom, and bathroom are completely private. The location is central but quiet--a short walk to the Centraal Station or by bike you are no more than 20 minutes from anywhere in the city. Roos and Peter have the best recommendations and even took me to boot camp in the park. I can't recommend this place enough!

Central but quiet location. Right in the center of the city. By a canal. Walking distance to Central Station. Roos is a very nice host. She and her boyfriend helped us with everything we needed- guidence to good restaurants as well as a hairdryer and an iron. We really enjoyed!

I had a great stay here! Perfect location because it is in Amsterdam center but on a quieter residential street. Everything you could need is the shared kitchen. Nice bedroom and bathroom and you have your own living area too! Love the funky Dutch style, I recommend this place! :)

We're an Amsterdam based couple who love to travel and meet new people. We're renting out a part of our home as well, so feel welcome to enjoy our canal house.
