Perks for the Parents

This stylish, open plan Amsterdam apartment is fully set up for a family stay and is a 10-minute walk to Vondelpark. It sleeps up to 6 and would ideally suit a couple with 2 or 3 young children. The residence is located in a very child-friendly area with a local playground, coffee bars, supermarket and restaurants around the corner. The living room at ground level is very spacious with direct access to the garden. All equipment you need is available, including a home cinema system.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love the full set-up here with plenty of toys and books available for children age 0 to 5 years old. There’s a spacious garden where you’ll find a swing, an in-ground trampoline, toy cars to drive and a fun hammock seat to swing in. The living room is 16 m from front to back so there’s space to play inside – parents can watch kids play in the garden while cooking. Nearby Vondelpark has bike and walking paths, ponds and cafes, as well as several impressive wooden play structures.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 3 nights. This home is baby and toddler proofed with stair gates, locks on all the doors and plug sockets. There is an open tread, spiral staircase from the kitchen where young children should take care. All baby / toddler equipment is included for your stay including a high chair, changing table, bed rails, children’s dinnerware and baby bath tub. Car hire is not necessary to stay here. The best way to get around Amsterdam is by bike – hire an electric cargo bike to pop the kids in.

About the Location

This apartment is located in the Overtoomburt district, part of the larger neighborhood of Oud-West of Amsterdam. It’s a vibrant area full of shops, interesting boutiques, restaurants, playgrounds, grocery stores and bike rentals. Museumplein, including the Van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum, and the famous canals of the city center are within 20 minutes on foot or by tram. The wide green spaces of Vondelpark are only 10 minutes walking distance. Amsterdam Schiphol airport is 20 minutes away by taxi or 25 minutes by public transport.

Accommodation Details

This 2-bedroom, 3-bathroom Amsterdam apartment is on the ground floor and is on 2 levels. The main living space is open plan with a kitchen with a breakfast bar, a dining area with a table seating up to 6, and a lounge area with sofas overlooking the garden. Upstairs, there is a master bedroom with a full / double bed and a child’s bedroom with 2 single / twin beds – 1 is a high sleeper suitable for children over 5 – and a toddler bed if required. A family bathroom has a tub, a walk-in shower and a double sink. There are also 2 separate toilets on the ground and 1st floor. Outside is a fully enclosed garden with play equipment.

Style Notes

Laid-back city chic. This apartment has been fully renovated in 2019. The open concept living room has space to relax, cook and play. There are floor-to-ceiling windows, which means there’s an abundance of natural light and easy access to the garden. Décor is a mix of contemporary pieces and mid-century modern with a vintage 1960s sideboard in the lounge. Neutral grays, soft whites, fluffy cushions and soft rugs make this a welcoming and comfortable home. We love the family-friendly living space, the large pieces of contemporary art, and the fun and safe garden.
