Perks for the Parents

This light and spacious family apartment is located in the vibrant and charming Watergraafsmeer, an ideal location to combine exploring the city with relaxing at one of the area’s beautiful parks. This recently restyled ground floor apartment with garden is perfect for families, including open living spaces with room for wheeled toys, Quooker (child-proof instant boiling water tap) in the kitchen, and bright bedrooms with garden views and access.

Why Kids Love it

Fully equipped for babies and toddlers, including a crib, toddler bed, changing table and high chair. There are baby and toddler toys, books, and wheeled toys plus a garden to play in. Watergraafsmeer is a great area for young families- traffic is slow and several nearby parks make it perfect for strolls with young children. The Frankendaelpark is home to several famous restaurants, and the Flevopark is a beautiful park with plenty of kids activities and a ‘Youth Land’ with animals and a petting farm.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 days. The apartment is baby-proofed. Strictly no-smoking inside the house. No pets allowed. There is great public transportation. The hosts can lend their 2 bikes (1 has a baby seat) upon request. A Stokke triptrap high chair with babyset and changing table are included and a baby bath, playpen and baby car seat are available on request. WiFi, washer/dryer and dishwasher included. It is a 20 minute bus/tram ride to train stations Amsterdam Central and Amsterdam Zuid, where you can find on a train directly to Schiphol Airport.

About the Location

The lovely Watergraafsmeer area feels like a village in the city. Located near the ‘Indische buur’ and the ‘Dappermarkt,’ the area is chock full of ethnic grocers, shops and leafy streets. Holland’s famous Artis Zoo is just around the corner, where they host weekly concerts and organize educational activities for the kids. Also near the recently renovated Tropenmuseum with elegant restaurant terrace overlooking the park and beautiful Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom ground floor apartment includes a living room with piano, open kitchen with dining for 6 + babies, and French doors to the garden. It has a master bedroom with a kingsize bed, a guest room/study with a bunk-bed and a bathroom with walk-in shower and bathtub. There are 2 toilets. There is a children’s bed in the nursery that suits children from 0-7 years old. An extra travel crib is also available.

Style Notes

Open and bright with muted colors. The residence was completely renovated in 2016 and has a contemporary Amsterdam style with solid wooden floors, kitchen skylight and Scandinavian design furniture mixed with vintage items and travel keepsakes from South America. We love the farmhouse table with modern Eames-style fiberglass chairs, unique pendant lighting and colorful art dotting the walls.

Arnout, our daughter Pilar (21 months) and I live in the Watergraafsmeer area, which we consider to be the best part in town, especially with kids😀. Our favourite destinations so far are Argentina (where we have lived for some years), Brazil, South Africa and Indonesia. Always into more amazing trips! We would love to welcome guests from all over the world and make sure you love Amsterdam as much as we do. Very much looking forward to host you!

Watergraafsmeer, Amsterdam

Vibrant, foodie and family-friendly

This area of east/central Amsterdam is vibrant, green and family friendly, with plenty of parks and playgrounds. It is near to Amsterdam Zoo, the ethnographic Tropenmuseum and plenty of local weekend markets. Nearby you’ll find canals, of course, along with the city’s science park, the Amstel train station and some wonderful restaurants, including De Kas and Dauphine.
