This beautiful three-storey residence dates to the early 1900s and is directly behind the Museumplein in central Amsterdam, sleeping up to 4 adults and 3 young children. It’s a fantastic location and has inspiring modern interior design, using a palette of greys and whites and a dash of New York style - from subway signs to a wall map of the city in the second double bedroom. There are two kids rooms with two cribs and a junior/cotbed together, plus two double bedrooms. Light pours in through the floor to ceiling windows and there’s even a wooden swing in the lounge. Don't miss cycling through the Rijksmuseum bike tunnel to the canals as a family as part of your stay.

What we love

  • If you like modern Danish design, greys, whites and browns, this is the residence for you
  • The home is laid out over three floors, with a double bedroom and large playroom with kids table, play kitchen, pram and toys in the basement
  • The ground floor has a sleek kitchen with white crockery and pots of herbs, a lounge with fireplace and wooden swing, and access to the garden
  • Upstairs, the light-filled master bedroom has windows opening to a small balcony, and a comfortable double bed
  • There are two nursery rooms, one with a crib, and the other with a crib and junior/toddler bed, plus books and toys and views of trees
  • There’s also a study on the top floor with a printer and workspace plus cheeky New York quote
  • The garden is a great place to relax after a day in the city, with a deck, dining table, sofa and chairs and a string of fairy lights

Things to know

  • The residence is 15 minutes from Amsterdam Schipol airport by car/taxi or 7 minutes by train
  • There is no need for car hire - the owners offer their bakfiets cargo bike (for up to 3 kids and 1 adult) plus 2 adult bikes and 2 toddler bikes
  • Trams and trains in the city are also reliable
  • There’s a large family bathroom
  • 2 additional single mattresses and a kingsize aerobed can also be used
  • The door to the balcony in the master bedroom can be locked for safety
  • It’s a great child-friendly area and is quiet at night
  • It's also really close to the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum - a unique combination of being smack in the middle of things yet family friendly and quiet

This place is impeccable. The decor is just stunning - the pictures don't quite do the place justice. The location is optimal - steps away from the museums, Vondelpark, great restaurants and cafes and grocery stores, and the tram stop (which takes you all over town). The toys they have are all so fun and intelligent - our toddler could entertain herself for hours at end. The bed is so comfortable - firm and wonderful. The neighbors are all incredibly friendly, warm and helpful. We biked around with the provided bikes, and had so much fun. The unit itself was squeaky clean, including each toy. It was so convenient having a lovely kitchen to cook in and also having a W/D. We were so sad to leave the place.

We had a incredible stay at the Wouwermanstraat Residence. The location couldn't be more convenient to the Museum Quarter. It's on multiple tram lines and the airport bus drops off almost directly in front of the house, yet the street itself is quiet and delightful. The house is as gorgeous as the photos, if not better, and the backyard was a delight. If it's helpful, the room set up has changed slightly since the original photos: one of the kid rooms now has bunk beds in it -- perfect for our boys. There's also an additional 1/2 bath on the main floor that I hadn't noticed in the write-up. Marja left great tips and recommendations for babysitting, family-friendly restaurants and activities. I can't say enough good things about our stay. Thank you!

Museumkwartier, Amsterdam

The city’s cultural heartland

In the south of central Amsterdam, the Museum Quarter is the city’s cultural hothouse, including the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum and the Van Gogh Museum among its treasures. It’s super well connected by tram to the city at large and is close to the Vondelpark for tots who prefer play to paintings.
