Perks for the Parents

This family-friendly home has canal views and a decked back garden and is walking distance from much of the city. Well set up for those traveling with small children it has plenty for children under 10. It is a short walk from local playgrounds, child-friendly restaurants and the Vondelpark. Additional perks include a piano and a large bathroom with rainshower and separate bath.

Why Kids Love it

There are plenty of toys and books available for children aged under 10. The dining room has chairs for children and a high chair and crib can be provided on request. There is space to play in the living room and in the garden, which has a swing. Kids can happily play in the toy-stocked bedroom, which has views of canal boats.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. Stairs are not gated, but they can be on request. The house is directly in front of a canal and is in the center of a large city; although there is not much traffic nearby, children should not go out unattended. Car rental not essential; much of the city is walking distance or cycling distance away and public transport is very reliable. Bike hire is available locally.

About the Location

The residence is in the very child-friendly Oud West neighborhood, with nice restaurants just around the corner and a canal directly opposite it. Within 5 minutes you could be in the historic city center with its shops and restaurants; the museum area is also just a short walk away. It takes 15 minutes to reach Schiphol Airport by taxi and around 30 by public transit.

Accommodation Details

This 2-floor apartment is set over the ground and first floor. There is a large living room with a fireplace and canal view plus an open, fully-equipped, kitchen, all on the upper floor with a balcony overlooking the garden at the back. On the lower floor there is a master bedroom with queensize bed, a children's bedroom with bunk beds and a toddler bed, and a bathroom with tub and shower. There are 2 separate toilets. The decked garden includes seating and a swing.

Style Notes

Modern family. The property has been completely renovated and retains some lovely features, including wooden floors and early 20th century items. The bathroom and kitchen are fully modern and sophisticated for easy family stays. It is a very light apartment with a beautiful view over the canals. The modern garden is not large, but cozy, with decking and plenty of ivy, pot plants and flowers. We love the sleek kitchen, the soothing modern interiors and the kids bedroom with canal boat views.
