Our home

17th century house in the center of Amsterdam, near Central Station. Overlooks what used to be the Amsterdam harbour. Great view.
We live on the top two floors of the house.
Big old wooden beams on every floor; there's also an old attic with a view over the old roofs.
We have a piano, two guitars, two ukeleles ans a violin. High speed internet and and an iMac.

Who we are

  1. I am a translator and teacher, my wife makes costumes for fashion designers and theatre. We have a son, 20, who does not live at home any more, and daughter, 16, who goes to school. We've exchanged houses twice and both were great experiences. We felt it was like staying in a 'real' house in a 'real' neighborhood (as opposed to a holiday home in a resort), and we felt much more part of the places we were visiting.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Historic Amsterdam, Nieuwmarkt.
Old neighbourhood, with only old Dutch houses, very lively with restaurants, China town, Central Station, Dam Square and the red light distric very near. Great mix of people, relaxed atmosphere and quite safe nowadays. Overlooks the old harbour, where there are now many new interesting buildings, like the new music centre (Muziekgebouw) and library. We're on a busy road, but there's lots of air and space. It's near the Rembrandt House (the old master used to live 5 min from here...) and the Amsterdam Hermitage. The Van Gogh Museum is a ten minute bike ride (we will leave our bikes of course...). The beach is not too difficult to reach by ferry (25 min) and bike (another 20 min or by train (40 min). Bike rides are great from here, in 20 minutes you are out in the countryside (we wil leave a map with an explanation). Parking your car is costly. There are parking garages at the edge of town where you can park your car for an longer period at a reasonable rate. (You don't need a car in the centre of town.)
