|Address||Buiksloterdijk, 1034ZD Amsterdam, Netherlands|
|Response time||A few hours|
|Calendar updated||5 days ago|
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 7/10 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. 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 magnificent. Overlooking the North Holland Canal and the Noorderpark. In the back, where the studio, is you will find a beautifully kept garden, with terraces and ample lounge chairs. It is a very sunny spot, you have the sun coming in very early in the morning and stay all day on the terraces and the garden. You have your own entrance, though the gate a the side of the house. This is also the place where you can store your bicycles safely.
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 artist 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 studio apartment consists of a living/sleeping area, a separate kitchenette with induction cooker, fridge, microwave and nespresso coffee machine.
There is a separate toilet and a luxury bath room with shower and sauna.
The apartment has floor heating, large windows overlooking the garden and a double bed of 1,80m x 2,00m. There is a sofa and a dining table for 2/4.
You are very private with your own entrance through the gate at the side of the house.
Free Internet 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.

wir haben sehr gerne bei Ellen und René im Gartenapartment gewohnt.Es ist
sehr ruhig und mit Zugang zu dem lauschigen Garten. Die kurze Entfernung zu der Bushaltestelle machte es leicht ins Zentrum zu kommen und wieder zurück aus dem Trubel der Stadt in eine Welt der Erholung. Unsere Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich und haben uns mit nützlichen Informationen jederzeit geholfen. Das Apartment ist gut ausgestattet und hat sehr bequeme, nicht zu harte Betten.

The appartment was amazing, really comfy bed, lovely street and peacful area, with a supermarket nearby and basically 10 mins away from city centre by Bus 34 or 35. We were received really well by René, who helped us with the basic staff. Totally recommend it!!
We had a great time in René & Ellen's apartment ! They prepared everything perfectly and the apartement was really nice !
The apartment is located in the north of Amsterdam, right next to a park, a very nice location, we walked the park along the main train station (about a 30 minute walk, then take the free ferry) and also rented bicycles, is by bicycle we drove 10 minutes away via the Fahrradschnellweg from the main station to the apartment and the landlords are very nice and very attentive! The apartment is very nice and quiet (The 2 bedrooms are to the garden, the house belongs to the old captain's houses on the street line).
Die Wohnung liegt im Norden von Amsterdam, direkt an einem Park, eine sehr schöne Lage; Wir sind den Park entlang zum Hauptbahnhof gelaufen (ca. 30 Minuten zu Fuß, dann mit der kostenlosen Fähre) und haben uns Fahrräder ausgeliehen; mit dem Fahrrad ist man in 10 Minuten über den Fahrradschnellweg vom Hauptbahnhof zur Wohnung gefahren; die Vermieter sind sehr nett und sehr aufmerksam! Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und ruhig gelegen (Die 2 Schlafzimmer sind zum Garten hin; Das Haus gehört zu den alten Kapitänshäusern in der Straßenzeile).
