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 induction cooker, fridge, microwave and nespresso coffee machine.
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 €10 per person.

Reviews of this property
Das Haus ist wunderschön gelegen, auch ruhig. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Wenn man gut zu Fuß ist kann man auch in die Innenstadt laufen. Die Ferienwohnung ist gut ausgestattet - also: eine Weiterempfehlung.
Sehr nette Gastgeber!
Tolle idyllische Lage direkt am Bach :)
Mit dem Bus sind es nur 3 Stationen bis ins Zentrum.
Geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnung...
Sogar mit Badewanne und Balkon!
Wir kommen gerne wieder!
Wir hatten ein wunderschönes Wochenende in Amsterdam. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, gemütlich, alles da, was man benötigt. Wir fanden es sehr schön und entspannt etwas außerhalb vom trubeligen Stadtzentrum zu wohnen, es ist alles trotzdem gut und schnell erreichbar. Die Gastgeber sind sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Renate und Ralph im April 2014

friendly and helpfull hirer, nice and beautifull appartment.It was great.
Had a lovely holiday. Apartment true to description. Comfortable bed and delightful living area. Pleasant garden, nice to sit outside. Good location great if you are into cycling. Variety of supermarkets not far away. A nice cycle to the city along scenic canal. Fabulous new swimming pool just across the road .Hosts very helpful but not intrusive.
Perfect accomodation. Very comfortable, clean and sweet. Perfect for a couple. I definately recommend having a car or bike. Then it is best to drive 3 minutes to the ferry (parking for free) and take the ferry to Amsterdam city (another 3-5 minutes)all day and night (ferry is as well for free). I have enjoyed my stay very much and the hosts have pefect ideas and tips for restaurants and sights! ENJOY!!
What a lovely apartment and lovely couple.
It is a beautiful little studio with gorgeous gardens and little river at the back where u can sit.. Rene and Ellen where lovely and told us everything we needed and gave a booklet they had made, with recommendations and directions.. The stay was perfect... Thanks guys loved it..
Thanks again Elisha
this little apartment is absolutely stunning, It has all the things you would ever need, bed is suuuper comfy and was a struggle every morning to get out,
the bus 34 and 35 have a stop roughly 300-400m out the front its a very nice safe neighborhood, the walk down the canal to the Centeraal takes about 25 mins and its beautiful,
Rene and Ellen are lovely and we would definitely stay here again should we come back to amsterdam.

We had a very nice week in Amsterdam. The Apartment was situatet very good as it was easy to get to the center of Amsterdam. It took appr. 30 minuts going to the busstop and driving to the center of Amsterdam. It was a very nice appartment and it was very fine to get from the noice in the city to the calmness in the appartment and the area nearby. We diden't need that much help from Rene and Ellen but when we did they were very helpfull. Higly recommended.

Sehr ruhige gemütlich Ferienwohnung, mit allem was man braucht ausgestattet. Man kann in ca. 25 min zu Fuß nach Amsterdam rein laufen oder in 10 min mit dem Bus dort hinfahren. Der Bus hält ca. 200 m von der Haustür entfernt. Wer Ruhe mag und trotzdem Lust auf eine Städereise hat, dem wird es bei Rene und Ellen sehr gut gefallen!
