Perks for the Parents

A central duplex apartment in Amsterdam, surrounded by green parks and family-friendly attractions. It sleeps 3 + 2. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay with young kids, including a small garden - a rarity in the center of the city. The area is quiet yet really close to everything Amsterdam has to offer, including bars, restaurants, museums and shops. Ask the hosts for babysitting recommendations and local child-friendly hangouts.

Why Kids Love it

The host family has 2 children aged 2 and 4, who are happy to share their toys with visiting guests. The bedrooms are located on the basement floor, so they’re dark enough for daytime naps (or lay-ins, if you’re lucky). The street is quiet and safe, close to several playgrounds, botanical gardens and the city’s ARTIS zoo (5 minutes’ walk). Amsterdam is a really child-friendly city, with museums to visit, plenty of parks and lots of fun things to do for kids.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 4 nights. The apartment is on the ground floor and lower ground floor, in total around 120 m2. Safety notes: there is a staircase that can be safely closed with a stairgate. Bicycles (both adults and kids, electric and regular) can be borrowed from the host family. There is sufficient parking space in the street, but it is paid parking (central Amsterdam rate) and car rental is not strictly essential to explore the city.

About the Location

The apartment is located in the Plantage neighborhood, in the heart of Amsterdam. It’s directly opposite the Hortus botanical gardens and less than 5 minutes’ walk from the Artis tram and bus stops. The nice and cozy restaurants and eateries in this area make this neighborhood even more attractive to families. Popular spots in walking distance include Hortus Botanical Garden, Waterlooplein, Artis Zoo, and Oosterpark. The whole city center of Amsterdam is easily accessible by bike as well. It’s a 20 minute drive from Schipol international airport.

Accommodation Details

This duplex apartment has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. It has a private entrance, with a large open plan kitchen as well as an adjoining sitting room and separate playroom (which has a single sofabed). The primary bedroom has a double bed and the children’s bedroom has a crib and a toddler bed, suitable for kids aged 6 and under. The bathroom has a walk-in shower and bathtub; there is a WC on each floor.

Style Notes

Natural warmth. Bright, spacious and recently renovated, the apartment feels modern and comfortable. It’s also suitably ‘kid-proof': children can play safely in the playroom as well as in the rest of the house without the risk of breaking things. We love the open plan living space, which features a cozy bench behind the dining table that’s ideal for reading, as well as the textile wall hangings and the abundance of green plants throughout.

We are a family of four, living and working in Amsterdam. We live in the city center of Amsterdam with our two little girls and enjoy everything the city has to offer. We love to travel when possible to get to know new places and enjoy nature, a perfect time for another family to use our home.

Plantage, Amsterdam

The cultural heart of the city

Right in the heart of the city, beside the zoo, canals and key cultural attractions, Plantage is a great place to stay as a family. With museums and public transport all a short walk from your doorstep, along with major shopping streets, dining options and parks, everything is easy. Don’t miss playing in the water in the new public square beside the zoo, lounging on the grass beside the canals in summer, and the many canal-side cafés and bars.
