Description from owner
On the picturesque ancient Buiksloterdijk in Amsterdam North is our spacious apartment of 80m2 (860 sq.ft.). It is an oasis of peace and yet only 10 minutes by bike or 15 minutes by bus and metro to Amsterdam Central Station or Dam Square.
The view is beautiful. Overlooking the North Holland Canal. Known cycling and walking routes through rural North Holland and Waterland go directly past our house. Walking distance just 15 minutes to the new EYE Film Museum on the river IJ. By bike it is 7 minutes to the FREE ferry which brings you to the Central Station (2 minutes). The ferry runs day and night every 5/10 minutes. In front of the house is the Noorderpark and its indoor/outdoor swimming pool (50m).
Parking is cheap right in front of the house €13/day; the bus stop to metro station NOORDERPARK is a few minutes walking from the house. Busses run every 5 minutes.
To the metro station it is 2 minutes, from there to Dam Square is 4 minutes.
By car you drive through the IJ tunnel in 5 minutes to reach the center of town (Waterlooplein) with ample parking garages.
Amsterdam North is the new buzzing district for art, film and specialty restaurants, such as the IJkantine, Stork or Hotel de Goudfazant.
On the front is the living room, with lovely views over a canal. There are two separate bedrooms with a king size real bed of 1.80m x2.00m.One bed can be separated into two single beds. At the rear is a balcony. This is the place were you are allowed to smoke. There is a well-equipped kitchenette with an induction cooker and all necessary equipment. There is also a large bathroom with bath and separate shower.
The recently renovated appartemement features free Wi-Fi and a 42'' flatscreen television with dvd player.
This is a top location for Amsterdam. You are in the buzzing city within minutes and yet you are in a place with a rural feel. Where you hear birds sing in the morning and a have views overlooking parks both in the back and in the front. First Floor Apartment is unique!

Really clean and tidy. Comfy beds. Easy transport available. Easy Uber rides into the centre or you can take a short walk to the metro. Lovely place with nice scenery.

“Very disappointing, not like the pictures at all”
Well, first of all I think it's time someone left a honest review on here about the property and the owners. Me and my partner arrived a little late due to delays. We arrived and was greeted by R… More
Response from the owner Dear Guests You say its it time for an honest review of our apartment. Do you mean to say that all the other, mainly 5-star reviews we received over the years are not written by honest people? And that you are the first? Your review starts with describing me ´staring at you like a gost´, Do you mean that it is very strange for me to see a guest checking? I can tell you I have seen guests before, so don´t worry, I don´t see them as ghosts. I understand you did not like my explanation of the restaurants in the neighbourhood. I wish you would have said so, it would have saved both of us time. Nightclubs I did not suggest, simply because ther are none in North-Amsterdam. You also seem to be dissapointed that my wife Ellen was not present when we checked you in. She was busy elsewhere, I am sorry. You claim that the apartment is not like the pictures at all. That none of the furniture is the same. That is an all out lie. The apartment is still and was always like the pictures on the site. Ofcourse during the years we had to change minor things due to wear and tear. But none of them were so major that we felt it nescessary to change our pictures because they couild be deceiving. E.g the chairs, you are absolutely right, in our pictures they are red chairs with cloth seatings. We replaced them with new ones. Not by ´unconfortrable plastic chairs´ as you describe them but with brand new Ahrendt Revolt chairs that cost €350 each and that are one of the most comfortable chairs around and therefore hughly sucessful. You claim our TV is a ´crappy Sony´. In fact is is a 40 inch Sony Bravia TV, with a brilliant and perfect picture and sound, remote controle and more then 200 cable channels. Your claim that the apartment was dirty, we consider that an insult. We always make sure our apartment is squeeky clean and so is the bedding and are the towels etc. The ´double beds pushed together´, are the 2 single beds in one of the 2 bedrooms. They can be separated or put apart. The size of bed is kingsize if put together. The second bedroom has one fixed bedframe that is kingsize 1,80m x 2,00m. It cannot be split. Exactly like the pictures and the description. You claim the shower is so small it could not even accomodate a child. The shower is in fact 80cm x 90cm and is perfectly suitable for adults. There is a second shower available in the bath. We feel this review of yours is only written to damage us and our business.It is not factual and above all not true or ´honest´. We wish you would have had the decency to mention any of the above problems to us in person, but that is not your style, we guess? Sincerely, René and Ellen.
