Perks for the Parents

This traditional 19th Century townhouse above a fashion store in central Amsterdam is a stone’s throw from world-class museums and galleries and is well equipped for young children. We love the stunning, stylish rooms, roof garden and historic charm. At 300m from the city’s central museum square and less than a minute’s walk to the beautiful Vondelpark, with its open-air theatre and playground, the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum and the Stedelijk Museum, boasting contemporary art, the location can’t be bettered.

Why Kids Love it

The house is perfect for all ages but mostly kitted out for babies and toddlers, with charming toys including a play kitchen. All the stairs have stair gates and there is a Tripp Trapp chair for children to use. The nearby attractions are highly child-friendly; the Vondelpark has plenty of playgrounds and space to play and the museums have plenty to offer the kids. The area is highly walkable with or without a stroller, and making like a local and hiring bikes as a family is a fun way to see the city.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 days. The house is above a fashion store with its own entrance on the ground floor. There is a private roof terrace with BBQ, dining area and lounge sofa. It is secured for children but they should not be left unattended. The stairs are steep, as typical in Amsterdam, but have stair gates; there are stairs up to the entry. Car rental not recommended; trams, bikes and buses are the easiest way to get around.

About the Location

This residence is 300m from the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh museum and Stedelijk Museum in the Museum Quarter of Amsterdam. The Vondelpark is only a minute’s walk and there are many child-friendly cafés nearby. The house in the middle of the shopping streets P.C. Hooftstraat and Cornelis Schuyt, while Schiphol Airport is only a 15-minute drive by car.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom, 2-floor family house has a master bedroom with kingsize bed, second bedroom with queensize and toddler bed, and third bedroom with a crib. There is a full kitchen, dining and living room, plus roof terrace. The bathroom has a shower and tub, and there is a washer-dryer.

Style Notes

Contemporary chic. This traditional home has been recently renovated, with new wooden floors, playful colours and design furniture. Dating from 1890 with lots of original details, the living room is light and spacious with a statement lampshade, and there are beautiful displays of modern art on every wall (including some nudes).

Our stay was perfect. The home was in immaculate condition when we arrived, Nicki went above and beyond to make sure all our questions were answered and was a most gracious host throughout. The home is set up perfectly for a family and our 3 children loved it. The location couldn’t be better: everything you need is within walking distance and the entire city is within 10 minutes by bike. Highly recommended.

A beautiful apartment with everything we needed for our 14-month old! The location was perfect too -- just a couple minutes walk to Museumplein, but out of the tourist bustle. Nicki was very easy and pleasant to communicate with.

The house is lovely, beautifully decorated, and extremely near the museums, the park, and Amsterdam center. Me and my family enjoyed pleasant days in Nicki´s house, in every single detail.

We absolutely loved Nicki's home. She was a very responsive hostess and everything was so smooth! This apartment was in a fantastic location and was quiet, safe, and comfortable. We loved how light and bright it was and the toys kept our 14 mos old busy while we were able to relax and enjoy. We LOVED her restaurant recommendations, especially Le 4 Stagioni----so kid friendly, we ate their two times! We also walked to bakeries, coffee, bagels, and right to the Vodelpark in 2 minutes. You're also really close to the Van Gogh museum, the I AMsterdam sign, trams, and a grocery store (less than 1/2 mile away). We had everything....nice beds, laundry, high chair, toys, crib, etc....she also greeted us with a bottle of wine and a Dutch treat. She did a fantastic job! I have ZERO complaints and we thought Amsterdam was the coolest city! We traveled with a 9 y/o, 8 y/o and 14 mos old and had plenty to do for the week! Loved it all. Thanks Nicki!

Perfect family apartment! The house was just perfect for us with our two young children. They have many toys it is secure for young children and the neighborhood is really nice because of the park next to the house. Since it is a typical Amsterdam house it has three stories and the stairs a very high but everything is safe for the children! I can really recommend this house and would always stay there again! Thank you for having us in your house!

This is an absolutely beautiful home, half a block from Vondelpark. It's in a quieter area of Amsterdam but has plenty of cafes, shopping, and restaurants. It's an easy walk to the museums and the trolley stop was very close for our visit to the zoo. Nicki was a great host and provided great recommendations along with a map. The home was very spacious and clean. It had the beautiful charm of an older building but had a totally modern kitchen and bathrooms. It overlooks this gorgeous garden and my husband and I sat enjoying the peaceful scenery and wine while the kids watched a movie before bed. We absolutely loved our stay here and if we are ever lucky enough to visit Amsterdam again, I would absolutely book this home again.

Amsterdam-Zuid, Amsterdam

Museums, art and shopping

'Het Zuid', the southern half of Amsterdam, includes the Museum District, Vondelpark and both the boho district of De Pijp and the designer stores of P.C. Hoofstraat. It's a great place to be based, with easy access to the city and plenty to do in the world-famous art galleries whether you're 8 months, 8 years, 18 or 80.
