Our apartment is spacious (125 sqm). It is situated in a modern building in the center of Amsterdam. The front is almost completely made of glass, therefore there is lot of light inside. The apartment has wooden floors allover. It is well equiped with everything you need: dish washer, washing machine, tumble dryer, kitchen equipment, wireless internet, digital television, dvd player etc.
In front of the house, we have our "city garden" where you can have breakfast, lunch or dinner (to the extent Dutch weather permits!). In addition there is a 10 sqm terrace on the first floor. The road in front of the building is only allowed for bikes and not for cars. The apartment building is located adjacent to a typical Amsterdam canal.
Inside the apartment, on the ground floor, there is a separate kitchen / dining room and a study with seperate bath room. The study is also our guest room, with a single bed. On the second floor there is a spacious living room which is connected to the kitchen through walking glass. On the second floor we also have a master bedroom and two bedrooms with children's beds (one bed for age 0-3, and the other for age 3-6). The second floor is completed with the main bathroom and a separate toilet.
We have bikes that you can use to explore Amsterdam, including a "bakfiets" (transport bike, see picture), ideal to ride around with young children (1-6 years old; they need to be able to sit themselves on a little bench inside the carrier).
