Our typically Dutch house full of original features suits those who like to be surrounded by old world charm. The house is located in a quiet street, yet is only a stroll away from lovely restaurants, shops, markets and the Anne Frank House.
The house is spacious (120 m2) and cosy and has a sunny patio at the back. The property dates from 1850. The original oak floors, beamed ceilings and sash windows add to the appeal. And you’ll notice it’s a bit crooked, which is typical of many old houses in the centre of town.
The house is laid out over three floors: two living areas and the bedroom at the top of the house. There are two bathrooms, one with a bath, one with a shower, both have a toilet and a sink.
The kitchen is far from modern, but full of charm. If you can’t do without a dishwasher or microwave, this is not the place for you. But if you would like to spend some time in a sweet, comfortable and beautiful Jordanese house, we guarantee you’ll feel at home here.
Guests will have access to the whole house except for one room (our son’s bedroom) where we will store our private things. We have lived in Amsterdam for over twenty years and are happy to provide you with tips on good restaurants, nice markets, fun festivals and other favourites of ours that tourists would not easily find.
Like all Jordanese houses, there are quite a few stairs to climb, which makes it unsuitable for elderly or disabled people.
We have lovely neighbours, so no noise between 10:30 pm and 8:00 am.
Please remove your shoes inside the house.
No overnight guests.
I'm a freelance editor and I live with my husband (primary school teacher) and son in the Jordaan, which is in our opinion the best place to live. Our house is a bit crooked but full of character, something I look for myself when I travel. And hospitality, of course.
