Perks for the Parents

This bright Amsterdam home in the Ijburg area of the city, 15 minutes walk from the city beach, has a private pier for swimming in the canal, bikes to help you feel like a local and plenty of space to play and relax. There’s enough space for 1-2 families traveling together. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a 4-person and an 8-person dining table, plus 2 living rooms so everyone has enough space. A big garden with access to a private pier for canal swimming gives a fun space to relax or barbecue on sunny days.

Why Kids Love it

The house has plenty of toys and books for children under 12, including a Playstation in the games room and lots of board games. Netflix is available. Nearby child-friendly attractions include a petting zoo a 2-minute walk away, Theo van Gogh park and playground 5 minutes’ walk away, and city beach Blijburg 15 minutes’ walk away. Note that there is no baby equipment except a high chair in the house, but the owners may be able to arrange items for babies on request.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. No pets. The house is less suitable for crawling babies; stairs are not gated, there is a big step in the main living space and there is direct canal access at the back of the house (young children and non-swimmers will need to be supervised).

About the Location

The residence is in IJburg, 30 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam. This island neighborhood is surrounded by water at every turn - both the harbor and canals - and is in the southeast of the city. It is connected by the city’s excellent public transportation system, with tram 26 (every 5 minutes) reaching Amsterdam Central Station in 20 minutes. IJburg itself has lot of grocery stores, boutiques and restaurants. Cycling is a good way to get to know the city and bikes are provided. The airport is about 30 minutes away by car.

Accommodation Details

This 4-bedroom villa is set over 3 floors and has a front and back garden. The ground floor includes a kitchen and 2 comfortable living rooms, plus easy access to the back garden. The first floor has a master bedroom with kingsize bed, private bathroom and toilet, and 2 children’s rooms, each sleeping 2 in a bed with space for a third on a mattress. The family bathroom has a shower and toilet. In the basement there is a garage, toilet and extra room/games room with private shower.

Style Notes

Bright, light, modern and Scandinavian. This brand new home has clean lines, functional styling, monochrome colors and fun touches in the kids rooms. Each room is styled by the owners with comfortable and design-led furniture. All cabinets, bathroom furniture and kitchen were handmade and designed for the house. We love the double height living space, airy and light-filled, the darkly stylish kitchen units, and the fun-filled kids rooms with decals, ghost chairs and sleek desks.

We are a family of 4: Marc, Karen, Kairi (10) and Riku (8) living in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Kairi enjoyes horse riding and hockey. Riku enjoyes free running and hockey. We love to travel. Europe (Tuscany in Italy, France, Ibiza, London and Copenhagen are our favorite), Asia and Curacao we love. The bucketlist is long ; ). By renting or swapping our home we hope to be able to travel more and live local on holidays. At travel we love to relax and read a book (iPad according to the kids) by the swimming pool or beach. Find local restaurants. Enjoy walking around and see highlights, shopping and museums. Most of all we love to find local hidden gems.

IJburg, Amsterdam

Islands in the city

One of the newest neighborhoods in the city, IJberg is made up of three artificial islands in the IJmeer lake, east of the city. They are all connected by bridges and are just a 15 minute tram ride to Central Station. Unsurprisingly, it’s a great location for waterbabies, with Blijburg beach within walking distance, plus an assortment of watersports facilities, a harbor to explore and plenty of restaurants and activity centers for children nearby.
