Perks for the Parents

This lovely 3-bedroom apartment has a great garden and is well located for exploring the city. Set in Watergraafsmeer, an easy tram ride from the city center and Amsterdam’s many child-friendly attractions, there are many nice cafés and restaurants nearby, plus the multi-cultural food-market Dappermarkt. Also nearby, the Frankendael Park is home to several famous restaurants, and there are a lot of shops, museums and parks in the area. The apartment itself is full of toys and includes a garden, child-proofed living room and plenty of items for younger children.

Why Kids Love it

The house is suitable for children between 0-12 years old, and has plenty of toys (for boys and girls) plus books for kids under 5. The garden is a perfect play area, with a sand box and eating area. The kids room is bright and colorful and has a toddler bed and a changing table. The living room is fully child-proofed with plenty of toys and provision for young children. A Stokke high chair are available and high chair for children between 3 and 6 is also available. The residence is a short walk from local playgrounds, parks and Amsterdam’s Artis zoo. The Flevopark is a beautiful park with plenty of kids activities and a ‘Youth Land’ with animals and a petting farm, and is just a short walk away.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 days. Note that the children’s bedroom has a raised low loft bed accessed by a ladder. The nursery bedroom has a toddler bed/crib. Both children’s bedrooms open to a balcony/terrace via french doors; all of these doors can be locked. The residence is on the street corner and is on the ground floor. There is a garden of 95 sqm with furniture and a sandbox. There is some storage in the basement of the building. The owners have 2 bikes you can use with child seats. Car rental may be useful but note that the property is very close to a tram route running to the center of the city.

About the Location

The residence is in the Watergraafsmeer area of the city, around 5-6km from the heart of the city. It is a lovely family-friendly area and a great location to combine exploring the city, relaxing in one of the beautiful parks and ice-skating at the famous Jaap Edenbaan. The nearest supermarket is a 4-minute walk away, where you can buy tickets for public transport. There are also many other useful shops like a bakery, pharmacy, post office, bookshop, toy store, nearby. There is a tram stop nearby; tram 9 goes to the center of the city plus Artis Zoo, Dappermarkt, Waterlooplein, Opera house, Hermitage and more. Amsterdam Schiphol Airport is a 20-minute drive away.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom apartment measures 80sqm and includes a porch, green garden and all day sun. There is an open plan main living area with kitchen and dining area, lounge and play area, plus a bathroom with shower and bathtub. A baby bathtub is also available. The bedrooms comprise 1 with kingsize bed, 1 with toddler bed for a child up to age 3 (60 x 120cm) and 1 with a loft bed suitable for a child under 10.

Style Notes

Modern Amsterdam. The residence was completely renovated in 2016 and is a city monument. It has a typical contemporary Amsterdam style with solid wooden floors, new kitchen and Scandinavian design furniture mixed with vintage items. The colors are off-white and light green with some pastel colors and the house is very light and sunny. We love the gorgeous garden, the light and bright spaces and the statement copper light in the dining room.
