About the property

Luxury apartment on the first floor of a traditional wooden Dutch house,located in a quiet street - recently described as one of Amsterdam's hidden gems in a national newspaper.

It's 2km walk/bike to the free ferry boat direct to Central Station, located at the heart of the old town. The house is close to the fashionable NDSM Werf in Amsterdam North with it many restaurants, and there are more traditional restaurants and bars within walking distance for a true Dutch experience.

The apartment has off-street parking for up to two cars. We're just 5 minutes from the highway by car, if you want to explore further or head to the beach.

There are two large bedrooms each with a private bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen. One bedroom has access to a large roof terrace with a view over a river and Amsterdam's last remaining polder (great sunsets).

We can also rent bikes for Euro 5 per day during your stay. Within 5 minutes heading out of town you can bike on traffic free bike lanes and visit some picture postcard villages just above Amsterdam or the popular Zaanse Schans windmills. There's also a lovely beach on a large freshwater lake in 'Twiske about 10 minutes by bike.

About Scott Roane

I work as a web editor in The Hague, and I've lived in Amsterdam for 13 years. Prior to this I lived in Germany and the UK.

Scott Roane purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Scott Roane chose Amsterdam-Noord

After living in the center of Amsterdam for some years it simply became too busy and too noisy (I like my sleep). One day I accidentally took the wrong boat to the north and realised that the free boats also went to the west. That's when I found this house. In 10 minutes I can bike to the center, but I can sleep peacefully at night. Best of both worlds. We live in the apartment on the ground floor.

What makes this apartment unique

Peaceful, wonderful sunsets over the field at the rear of the house, and a beautiful neighbourhood. Great bars and restaurants close by at the 'hip' NDSM Werf.

Wonderful accommodation and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Our accommodation was excellent- high quality bedding, beautifully appointed bathroom, and a more than adequate kitchen. Scott was a most attentive host: providing great instructions on how to get to his house, allowing us to use his laundry facilities, and generally assisting him in any way he could. We would highly recommend staying at this property

Don't hesitate to stay here!

  • 5 of 5

A great location, convenient to central Amsterdam as well as major highways for that excursion to the rural areas. The upstairs apartment (on floor 1 in european parlance) is clean, well furnished, and functional. The bathrooms (one for each of the two bedrooms) are generously sized and have both a shower and tub. The kitchen is basic, but adequately equipped. We (4 of us) enjoyed our stay, the warm reception and conversation with our host, and his advice for navigating the city. The street (Kadoelenweg) seems to have more bike traffic than cars, especially during the rush hours. You'll experience life in a pretty typical Dutch neighborhood. The parking area is right off the street; backing out may be a bit challenging for some drivers. We would be very likely to stay here again if it were available for our next Netherlands vacation.

Great apartment located 20 minute walk from the free ferry which takes you into central station. Was nice to come back to a quiet location after a busy day in the city. Scott was very good, providing us with maps to find supermarket and ferry. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to explore Amsterdam and the surrounding area. We stayed 4 days but needed to stay longer. So much to see and do.

Great location out of the fray, welcoming hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We spent five days in Amsterdam and were lucky enough to book this charming, well equipped unit in a fantastic location. We did not know when we booked, but there was a large street festival in Amsterdam and the crowds were significant in the canal areas. This unit is in an authentic, close in 'suburb' of Amsterdam, but actually within the city limits. Real Hollanders live and work here, so it is a wonderful change from staying in a tourist area in the canal district. A 20 minute leisurely walk got us to the free ferry to take us to the Central Station and all the activities in the canal district of Amsterdam. We were glad to get home to our quiet, comfortable unit at the end of the day! Our hosts were very welcoming, and were extremely informative with maps, suggestions for restaurants, and even escorted us on a bike ride one day to Zaanse Schans, an area of historic windmills and buildings. Do rent the bikes one day! It is a great way to see the city and surrouding area the way the Dutch do!

Our large apartment was located above the hosts which was convenient if we ever had a question. The apartment had two large bedrooms, two large full baths, with a kitchen and dining area in the middle. We had a grocery store close by in Landsmeer that was great, and there were many restaurants (several highly rated ones close to the ferry landing that you can catch on your way home from the canal district). We did not meet anyone in Amsterdam that did not speak English and I have to say that they are the most warm, welcoming and good tempered bunch that we have met in our two month trip through Central and Northern Europe. Everyone--from our hosts, neighbors, store clerks, waiters, and vendors at the beach were happy, open, accepting, and glad to talk about their homeland. It was a wonderful experience and a place we highly recommend to visit!

Our house is located in the hip and happening Amsterdam North. It offers peace and quiet, but convenience to the historic center. It's located in an old village called Kadoelen, that has now been swallowed up by Amsterdam. It's walking distance to the NDSM Werf (Marina) which has a number of bars and restaurants. 2km the other direction and you'll be in the typical Dutch village of Landsmeer with many restaurants. There is a supermarket 5 minutes away from us and a nice locals bar, La Chambre, at the end of the street.

If you rent bikes, in just a few minutes you're out of the city into the beautiful Dutch countryside above Amsterdam. There are traffic-free bike paths through the fields to many famous Dutch villages and towns such as Broek in Waterland, Marken, Volendam, Edam and Durgedam.

Twiske nature reserve with its miles of bike paths, mountain bike trails, horse riding, diving, sailing and sandy beaches, including special childrens beaches, is just 2km. But you can also swim from the swimming platform in the river at the end of our street (just a few minutes walk).
