6 mins to center, FREE parking , quiet
|Address||Buiksloterdijk, 1034ZD Amsterdam, Netherlands|
|Response time||A few hours|
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 all necessary equipment.
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 €12,50 per person.

Nos recibió René y a Ellen la conocimos el día que nos ibamos. Muy agradable, discreto, el apartamento muy limpio. Volvería a hospedarme allí si regresara a Amsterdam
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!
Comfortable, clean and quiet apartment not far from the center of Amsterdam. Very friendly hosts who are always there when you need them, but not intrusive. Very helpful, they have printed for us Admission tickets for the museums online, so we did not have to wait in line! Thank you! It is near the Wohung Einkaufsmölichkeiten. A supermarket and a bakery. We can only empfehelen this apartment. Thank you Rene and Ellen will be back!
Gemütliche, saubere und ruhige Wohnung nicht weit vom Zentrum von Amsterdam entfernt.
Sehr nette Gastgeber die immer da sind, wenn man sie braucht, jedoch nicht aufdringlich. Sehr hilfsbereit, sie haben für uns die Eintritskarten für die Museen online ausgedruckt, damit wir nicht lange anstehen mussten! Vielen Dank!
Es hat in der Nähe der Wohung Einkaufsmölichkeiten. Einen Supermarkt und eine Bäckerei. Wir können diese Wohung nur empfehelen.
Vielen Dank René und Ellen wir kommen wieder!
It was beautiful! The apartment was really clean, beautifully furnished and equipped with lots of love, there is absolutely nothing to complain about. The bus stop was about 5 minutes away and it was really fast in the middle of the city. The bedrooms were very large and comfortable. We felt very comfortable and would definitely come back. Thank you Ellen and René :)
Es war wunderschön! Die Ferienwohnung war total sauber, sehr schön eingerichtet und mit viel Liebe ausgestattet, es gibt absolut nichts zu bemängeln.
Die Bushaltestelle war ca. 5 Minuten entfernt und man war total schnell mitten in der City.
Die Schlafzimmer waren sehr groß und gemütlich. Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.
Danke Ellen und René :)
The perfect place to spend a few summer days in Amsterdam: quiet to sleep, have breakfast in the sun on the terrace. After a tiring day arrive in a neat, fresh and also nicely decorated room, away from the bustle of the city, yet close and easy to reach ... All space to stay with three generations: with two bedrooms and a living room no one extra early or extra late to go to sleep. Prepare. All necessary facilities for a breakfast or a picnic And any help with booking museums or providing public transport cards. A sooooo much better option than a dusty room in downtown Amsterdam! (I hate hotel carpets ;-))
De perfecte plaats om enkele warme zomerdagen in Amsterdam door te brengen: heerlijk rustig om te slapen, lekker in de zon op het terrasje ontbijten. Na een vermoeiende dag aankomen in een nette, frisse en bovendien mooi ingerichte kamer, weg van de drukte van de stad, maar toch vlakbij en makkelijk te bereiken...
Alle ruimte om er met drie generaties te verblijven: met twee slaapkamers en een woonkamer hoeft niemand extra vroeg of extra laat te gaan slapen.
Alle nodige faciliteiten om een ontbijt of een picknick te bereiden. En alle hulp bij het reserveren van musea of het voorzien van OV-kaarten.
Een zooooo veel betere optie dan een stoffige hotelkamer in centrum Amsterdam!!
(ik haat hoteltapijten ;-))
We were greeted very warmly by our hosts. The apartment had plenty of space for four people. Everything was beautifully decorated and very clean. We felt from the beginning very well. It was soagr an information folder with all the important things, such as where the nearest bakery and the nearest bus stop etc. is by the host. The area was very quiet yet central location (within 7 minutes of the main train station). It was a great stay. Nadine - Germany
Wir wurden von unseren Gastgebern sehr herzlich empfangen. Das Appartment hatte für vier Personen genügend Platz. Alles war liebevoll eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Wir haben uns von Anfang an sehr wohl gefühlt. Es wurde vom Gastgeber soagr eine Info-Mappe mit allen wichtigen Dingen, wie bspw. wo der nächste Bäcker, die nächste Bushaltestelle etc. ist.
Die Gegend war sehr ruhig und doch zentral (innerhalb von 7 Minuten am Hauptbahnhof).
Es war ein toller Aufenthalt.

Very nice apartment located not far from Amsterdam Central Station. Easy access if you come by car and especially easy to park for free! Transport very close. Nice terrace you would not think is in town, the place is quiet. Our hosts were very friendly. I urge you, in any case, we are sure to return.
Appartement très sympa situé non loin de la gare centrale d'Amsterdam. Facile d'accès si vous venez en voiture et surtout facilité pour se garer gratuitement ! Transports en commun très proches. Petite terrasse bien agréable on ne se croirait pas en ville, l'endroit est paisible. Nos hôtes étaient très sympathiques. Je vous conseille vivement, en tous cas nous ne manqueront pas de revenir.
Rene & Ellen have a flat top. Highly recommended, the location is nice and quiet, spacious and very good care of us close to the center (20 min walk, bike 10 min) Everything was very clean and new nothing is missing. Greetings from Twente
Rene & Ellen hebben een top appartement.
