About the property

The Painters Apartment is set on the ground floor of a late 19th century house, with a small conservatory, which was used to be the painter's room of the owner of the house, and which give direct access to the private garden.

The apartment is sometimes used as a meeting place for artists when not rented so is a little cluttered with many chairs in the living room and the walls are full of art, which makes for an interesting but unique stay.

If you're looking for modern and minimalist space this is not for you. But if you are not bothered by the full walls and furnishings in this apartment, it is a great option with a nice conservatory, garden and central location. By the way, the owner needs sometimes to access the garden, to water the plants and to go the shed, but she'll ask permission to you before doing it.

This is a nice vacation rental for a couple, with or without a child, individuals or guests on business trips.

Besides the garden, the accommodation offers a double bedroom, an open kitchen and private bathroom. In the case of a third guest an extra single bed will be place in the living room area.

There is a piano in the living room too and you are welcome to play, as long as you know how and won't cause any damages, because the owner practices there often (when there are no guests).

This studio offers a TV/DVD player and free Wi-Fi too, as well as access for disabled guests and wheelchair.

This apartment is located in a residential area with a genuine character where locals meet in fancy bars and restaurants.

On the border of this small residential area just outside the City Centre are a charming variety of specialty shops, boutiques and the designer stores of PC Hooftstraat, the famous shopping Street.

The apartment is located in Amsterdam Oud-West just on the border of the Canal belt at the level of The Jordaan Quarter, Leidseplein, Vondelpark and The Museum Quarter. The great museums like Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum are all within a pleasant 10 minutes walk. The famous Royal Concert Hall can be easily reached on foot as well.

For other further locations, there are tram stops very close by (less than 10 minutes to the Dam Square or Central Station).

Cosy, comfy & characterful

  • 5 of 5

So glad to have had the chance to stay in this apartment. The welcome was warm and the chance to stay in a Painter's apartment is not to be missed. Cosy rooms, comfy bed, lovely light, very good kitchen, great bathroom. Couldn't be happier.

April at the Artist"s House

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is a very interesting place to stay. You really are staying at an artist's home. She lives upstairs during your stay. The location is excellent. Plenty of room to spread out in the apartment. A beautiful garden at the back of the house. All the essentials are clean and fine. We had a hiccup getting everyone on the same page with our arrival time though. I will suggest that you double and triple check your itinerary and arrival times not only with the 3rd party manager Rui but also with the owner Annaliese.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review. I must apologise for the problem with your check-in appointment. The owner was supposed to let you in, but there was an emergency with her friend who fell at home and must be brought to the hospital in emergency, causing delay and stress on your arrival. We will make sure this won't happen again, doing the check-ins with Apartments Unlimited's own staff. I'm glad this didn't spoil your holidays in Amsterdam :-)

Perfect Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I loved staying at the Painter's Apartment! I just returned from visiting Amsterdam with my mother and 10 year old son and wish we could have stayed longer! The Painter's Apartment is perfectly located within walking distance of 4 tram stations, the closest station being a 5 minute walk and it goes to and from Centraal Station. There is also a grocery store and many different restaurants within a less than 10 minutes walk. It took us approximately 35 minutes to travel from Schipol Airport to the apartment via train (15 min), tram (10 min) and walking with luggage (10 min). Annelies and Rui were very accommodating and helpful. I would gladly stay here again!

Lovely apartment in an excellent location. Everything we needed.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay there but would caution the owner to knock before coming in to the apartment. We were surprised and miffed to have an unannounced visit. Otherwise, we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review. I have talked with the owner already about this incident and she won't do it anymore. Glad to hear you have enjoyed your stay despite this problem.

Great place for couple

  • 5 of 5

Our flight got in at 9 so we were really early and the landlord arranged for us to be able to get in right away. It is extremely charming and spacious with multiple areas to relax or entertain. The location was perfect for us. Not too close to city center where you felt like part of the chaos, but close enough where you could walk in 15 minutes. Also the street is beautiful with amazing restaurants. I would definitely stay here again on our next visit.
