About listing

Amsterdam-zuid, the southern part of amsterdam is well known for it’s comfortable living. The houses were built with great vision, in broad streets with lots of green and all the modern-day comfort you can imagine. From the very best museums and shops, the grand concert hall with it’s world renown concertgebouw orchestra to the famous Vondelpark. This house is situated in one of these lovely Amsterdam-zuid streets, the Van Breestraat where you will find all you need for a wonderful, relaxing and romantic Amsterdam stay. In this typical southern comfort two stories 150m2 townhome you’ll find an open fire place, a piano and a wonderful garden to enjoy. All on the ground floor. The kitchen and the guest toilet are located there as well. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, a master bedroom and two smaller ones. Two of them have access to a balcony and one is especially suited for children, but can also be used by grown-ups. On this floor you will also find a luxurious bathroom, with a tub and shower. There is a separate second toilet on this floor. The Museum square where you will find the van Gogh museum, the Rijksmuseum and Stedelijk museum are just a 5 minute walk away. You’ll also find the world-famous Grand Concerthall right there. Bikes can be rented around the corner, where you will also find supermarkets and all the stores, restaurants and cafés you could possibly wish for. The Vondelpark is fun for children and grown-ups, there are playgrounds and lovely picknick areas and in summer there are free concerts at the open air theater and all year 'round the Blauwe Theehuis and the Vondelpark3 have great food and drinks and lovely folks to meet. Trams, right around the corner will take you into the famous city centre with it's golden age canals in a jiffy. If you are in the mood for a stroll you can get there by foot in 15 to 20 minutes. We can’t wait to welcome you into our home where you will feel comfortable right away. The house is suitable for a group of friends or for a family but also for two. Guests have access to the entire house, except for the cellar and a little room on the 2nd floor. We can provide a baby bed and baby chair. Protection at the top of the stairs and a little rocking horse are also available. Our lovely and accommodating host Barbara will ensure you'll feel very welcome and can advise and help where needed. We hope to welcome you here soon.

    This home was the last leg of a tour through the Netherlands and Belgium for two women from Canada. From the initial request through to the prompt return of the DD, everything was flawless. Barbara was excellent at responding to our questions and accommodated our arrival on King's Day, and again for an earlier departure time than previously planned. The home was as pictured and the beds were fresh and comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and stocked, and the garden was a special treat as it hosted the most wonderful morning birds that sang sweetly as we enjoyed our breakfast (and the little treats Barbara left) We especially loved the washer/dryer after a long river cruise! The location of the home could not have been more perfect for our sightseeing, shopping and dinning excursions. We easily walked everywhere and loved exploring the charming community. We have both traveled a great deal through Europe but absolutely fell in love with Amsterdam, this cozy townhouse and the open warmth of the people. The whole experience was lovely and we felt very much at home. We will absolutely book this property again in the future - next time for much longer! 02 May 2017 - 06:55:00

    Everything about the home was perfect -- location and its proximity to the park, restaurants, markets, shops and of course, the museums. The home itself was gorgeous and we sat around just discussing its likely age and enjoying the beautiful terrace and garden. Barbara, the property manager, made it all so easy both before and during our stay. We would recommend this to anyone going to Amsterdam! 18 August 2016 - 16:19:00

    We really enjoyed being so close to Vondelpark and away from the hustle and bustle of things this trip. Great garden and stocked kitchen for cooking own meals. Easy to hook up an apple tv and great wifi and movie channels. This home was very well maintained and we recommend it to others. Thank you for the laat minute day of booking and good prompt communication skills over email and texts when we needed help or suggestions with things. 15 August 2016 - 07:49:00

    We planned a family vacation to Amsterdam this past XMAS/New Years 2015 and do prefer renting versus a hotel stay for a number of reasons. I have used Home Away/VRBO on numerous occasions for European big city rentals and always a pleasant experience; this experience was the best. First of all the photos on the VRBO site accurately showed the space. (1) The location of the home was convenient to quality restaurants (great Italian one a few hundred feet to the corner-SARDEGNA), wonderful coffee shops, just two blocks to a grocery store while a 2nd all organic market was within a block, and a short 5 minute walk to the Tram. The Amsterdam Tram system is excellent, clean and gets you anywhere you need to be. It is only a 15 minute or so ride to Dam Square in downtown Amsterdam. Van Breestraat is located in the most upscale area of Amsterdam. Whereas we were in Amsterdam for the winter holiday, we did not take advantage of the wonderful Vondelpark which is in the neighborhood. (2) The home is just a 10 minute walk to Museumplein, the area where you will find the RijKSMUSEUM, VAN GOGH MUSEUM, STEDELIJK MODERN ART MUSEUM AND THE CONCERTGEBOUW all within a few minute walk of each other. (3) Good restaurants are within walking distance include Sardenga, The Seafood Bar, Pompa, Zsa Zsa ( a short tram ride to PIJP area of town) and others. (4) THE HOUSE AT VAN BREESTRAAT 138 is wonderful, clean, spacious, comfortable (beds were very comfortable) with all the amenities one needs. The home is a working home and not just a rental place, so the warmness of the home is quite evident. If you rent a car you will find parking on the street in front. On street parking rates are expensive in Amsterdam. The kitchen area was perfect for the two dinners we cooked at home. (5) You are also within blocks of the best shopping area of Amsterdam located along Van Braelstraat and Pieter Cornelilz Hoofstraat (kind of a 5th Ave / Newbury St Boston) where you find all the upscale fashion names. The property manager Barbara met us, showed us all the home attributes, and provided us her contact info in case we needed her and I did text her a few times and had immediate responses. We were provided with a very detailed 5 page document of all the house workings from thermostat / laundry / kitchen equipment and more. Barbara met us upon leaving and I cannot say more of her Dutch hospitality as well as the home owners' hospitality which was evident in the great warmth of this location. 07 January 2015 - 11:36:25

    We wanted to be close to the museums, centrally located, in a nice neighborhood. Couldn't have asked for a better result. There were four of us (a family with two grown kids). Barbara greeted us and made us feel immediately at home. Bottle of wine to welcome us as well as fresh tulips! Sunny backyard, beautiful furniture, great location near shops, restaurants and attractions. 25 May 2015 - 12:33:00

    Our son and his partner live in Amsterdam and we wanted to experience their new city. We picked this VRBO rental from the beautiful pictures and the lovely garden. The house is lovely and very comfortable in every way! Beds, baths, kitchen, furniture, garden, proximity to everything are exceptional! The museums, park, shops, tram and restaurants are very close and convenient. Barbara was amazing with her kindness and attention to every detail. The welcome wine was a nice touch before we got our bearings. I can recommend this beautiful home without any reservations. Although the steps would be a problem for a person with physical disabilities. I hope to return to Amsterdam and this lovely property. 27 August 2015 - 20:41:09
