Our fully equipped baby and toddler proof 110 m2 house is situated In a quiet street of the vibrant neighbourhood 'De Pijp' in Amsterdam. It's only 10 mn walk from museum square and 5 mn walk from Albert Cuyp street. You can reach the centre bij tram in 10 minutes. Our house
has 2 bedrooms and a very luxury kitchen and bathroom. It is perfect for families with 2 or 3 (young) children or 4 adults. You can comfortably enjoy wine and dine in our 70m2 garden.
You enter our house through a hallway, where you can leave your coats and there is access to a separate toilet. The ground floor has an open space floorplan with a fully equipped kitchen. The kitchen is fitted with a fridge, an electric oven, a microwave, a dishwasher, a boiling water tap, a good automatic coffee machine and an induction cooktop.
We have an extendable dining table (and 2 high chairs in case you travel with children) that can seat 8 persons comfortably and a big couch at the garden side. Here you can read a book, listen to some music (via bluetooth or jackplug) or watch the television (via Chromecast).
From this room you can enter the 70 m2 garden, where we have another dining table seating at least 6 persons. There is a hammock and you can use our Weber BBQ.
We have a very safe stair gate so young children can't go down the stairs by themselves.
If you go down to the souterrain, you will find 2 bedrooms, one is about 12 sq. m, the other about 25 sq. m. Our 2 children (2 and 3 years old) sleep in a bunk bed in the small bedroom. We can extend the couch in this room into a comfortable bed for 2 adults.
In the main bedroom there is a very comfortable bed for 2 (with electrically adjustable matrasses), a television (also with Chromecast), a laptop workspace, a 20, 12, 8 and 4 kilogram kettlebell and a cross-trainer. From the bed you have a beautiful view of the sky and trees in the garden through a walkable skylight. You can cover these windows from the garden so you have more privacy, but you can also choose to leave the skylight uncovered, and enjoy the view and beautiful light. In the big bedroom you will also find a fire/roof-hatch leading into the garden and an extra toddler bed.
In the souterrain you will find the bathroom with an extra toilet. We have a walk-in-rain-shower and a separate bath.
In the utility room we have the washing machine and dryer.
Your children can play with all the toys they can find and you can borrow our (duo) strollers. We also have lots of books you can read if you like, and for the children lots of books with colourfull pictures.
Just contact us if you have any quenstions about our facillities.
Having 2 young children also means having lots of stuff everywhere. We want to make you feel welcome in our house and make room for the bagage you bring. You will find some of our closets locked because if you would open them, we are afraid everything we stacked in there would fall out.....
All rooms are availiable to you though, just like the garden

As you can see our house is very cheap compared to other houses in our neighboorhood (even the ones who are smaller and don't have a garden). The reason is that we have 2 cats and we prefer not to move them around too much, not for only a few days like in june and july. In may and september we are on holiday ourselves and we bring them to family.
We will make sure everything is arranged for them, like a clean litterbox and enough fresh food and water. They have never done any harm to anyone, not even to our children when they were pulling their tails and biting their ears....
IN MAY AND SEPTEMBER 2017 OUR CATS WILL NOT BE IN THE HOUSE
Please note our reviews of 2012 are reviews about the small apartment above our current house. This house is on the same location, but twice as big, 4 times as luxurious and with a huge garden, for Amsterdam standards. You will of course get the same hospitality and it will be just as clean as always.
Your vacation stay will be in the house where we and our children live our everyday life. We hope you will handle everything in the house with appropriatie care!
Smoking outside only, no parties allowed.
