Our home

Our comfortable two floor family apartment, dating from the turn of the 19th/20th Century but renovated in the 21st, is an excellent starting point for walks around the historic Jordaan neighbourhood, which is located just about 500 metres from our doorstep. There is a tram stop right across the street connecting you to all the rest of the city and if you like, we have bicycles you could use to explore Amsterdam the ‘Dutch way’. We have a 30 square metre roof garden which serves as an extra living/dining room in summer.

Property features

Who we are

  1. We’re a married couple and we have two boys (from 2006 and 2008). Joost is an illustrator and Charlotte a human resources manager. The boys are careful with other people’s belongings, as are we.

  2. Although we have a lovely holiday home in France, we do occasionally like to go somewhere else. What better to do than swap one of our homes or even both of them?

  3. We live in Amsterdam most of the time but spend quite a few days at our French holiday home as well. In fact as often as possible, because we’re totally in love with it, but sometimes we get restless and long for new horizons.
