Perks for the Parents

This light-filled 2-floor apartment overlooking the city’s botanical gardens is a block from Artis zoo in the heart of the city and sleeps up to 4 + 1. The open plan living space makes it easy for a family to stay here; the location is walking distance from the key museums and the city center, plus canals and historic sights, making it perfect for a long weekend (or longer) in Amsterdam. Add to that views of the Botanical Gardens, a cozy lounge, toys and books for children under 10 and public transportation nearby, and you have a recipe for family fun in the city.

Why Kids Love it

The residence is home to a 4-year-old boy and has plenty of toys and books for children under 10. The living room is a great family space large enough for wheeled toys. A high chair for kids 2 years and up is provided; on request hosts can provide a travel crib. They have a babysitter available by arrangement on request. The local area is very child-friendly with a playground and little park nearby and an indoor playground with trampolines a block away. There are many family-friendly restaurants around the corner.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights. There is no private outdoor space. The apartment is safe and the stairs can be closed at the top. Parking is available, but it is public and paid; with reliable public transport in the area, car rental is not essential. Public transport is very close by and connects you to all places of interest, or you can discover most of Amsterdam on foot. Bathrooms have showers; a small tub can be provided for younger kids. A second fully-equipped small apartment on the top floor can accommodate 2 more guests - please ask for details.

About the Location

The residence is in the Centrum part of Amsterdam, a block from Artis Zoo, and is set on a quiet dead-end street with little traffic. It is a very child-friendly area and is right beside the Hortus Botanical Gardens. Within 15 minutes by bike or public transport you can be at the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum or Anne Frank House, all of which provide special programs for kids. Schiphol Airport is a 25-minute taxi ride away.

Accommodation Details

This residence is set out over 2 floors and includes, on the ground floor, a large open plan kitchen, dining and lounge area, plus a small bathroom with shower and toilet. The dining area has a big family table. Upstairs there is a large master bedroom with a kingsize bed and a view over the botanical gardens. The kids room can sleep 2 of any age in 2 twin beds. A larger bathroom, with shower, is also on this floor.

Style Notes

Contemporary Amsterdam. Mixing high ceilings and historical style with modern open, smart and light design, this 2-floor apartment is charming and welcoming. The fully-equipped kitchen is ideal for a passionate cook. The kids room is bright and modern, inviting play. We love the snug lounge with wood-burner, the views of the botanical gardens and the sleek modern kitchen.

We are a Dutch family with French roots, we love our city and our neighbourhood! Our son likes to bike around the area and the regular visits to our neighbouring Artis Zoo. We think our home is great for families, since it's totally kidsproof and both in a quiet as central area of Amsterdam. You can discover all of Amsterdams' beauty by foot or bike.We enjoy to share our happy place!

We spent four wonderful days in Petra's apartment. It is a nice place to be with young kids. Very calm and silent to relax during the evening. We had everything to cook and to play with our sons. The place is very close to De Hortus and Artis zoo. Van Gogh museum is about 20 minutes walking and most of the places can be visited walking from the apartment. We really recommend Petra's apartment and we thank her so much for her welcome. Marion & Co.

Centrum, Amsterdam

Historic and atmospheric

This famous circuit of canals, museums and quirky streets in the heart of old Amsterdam has beautiful 17th century town houses and brightly-painted canal boats. It is historic and atmospheric and a great location for a family stay, being walking distance from Anne Frank House, an organic farmer’s market and the famous Nine Streets shopping district. Even better, there is a café and restaurant on every corner.
