The space

Authentic 17C Waterfront Canal Villa.
Stay in the ambience of Holland's Golden Age and live like a 17th century aristocrat at Amsterdam Canal Villa.
The villa is located just around the corner from a working windmill. This luxurious, beautifully preserved and in 2017 renovated villa was built in 1624 by a Dutch East Indies captain to house his family while he was at sea. It is centrally located, a mere 7 minute bike ride to the heart of the city. Parking is free! The home is quiet, quaint and authentic, boasting all the amenities of the 21st century. It has original beams and a mantle piece. It is furnished with antiques and has original artwork on the walls and sculptures in the rooms. Your comfortable bedroom has WiFi, a private bathroom with rain shower, a toilet bidet, a 2nd 1/2 bathroom and a sunny patio. There is a spacious lounge area with kitchenette, microwave, coffeemaker, electric kettle, toaster, washing machine and fridge. Coffee, tea, fruit, milk and muesli are available.

Hosts (MD and therapist) are well traveled and friendly. Together they speak 5 languages. A brand new public swimming pool with open access café and patio is located across the street. Facing your home is a large public park offering open-air performances in the summer. You can actually swim in the canal! Bike routes abound. Golf lovers have facilities nearby. The local grocery store is a short walk from your lodgings and there is an open-air market in the neighborhood. Buses and taxis are close by.

Janet and Leo were certainly welcoming but discrete hosts. The house and space were lovely and very suitable for a couple who want to stay away from the bright lights.. The homemade muesli was a nice touch. The bus 100 metres or so away is easily accessible and takes you strai…

Staying at Janet's home was a wonderful experience. It is a quiet location, with free, safe parking out the front. Janet and her husband were very welcoming. The accommodation is large and spotlessly clean and the back garden is an absolute delight - we had our evening meal of ba…

Janet and Leo's apartment is ideally located to discover Amsterdam. You can either walk to the free ferry that takes you to the central railway station, or catch us bus. We had a park right outside their door which was perfect. Upon arriving they gave us maps of Amsterdam and m…

We had a very nice stay at this place. The communication was fast and easy. A 30 min walk from the city, but its a nice walk through the park and if you are lazy a Uber to the centraal is under 10€. Super nice with the free parking!

This was a lovely setting in a quiet neighborhood just north of the hustle and bustle of downtown Amsterdam. While we did not meet the owners who were out of town, their house cleaner greeted us and provided all the necessary information for our stay. The only issue we had was …

Response from Janet:
Dear Cris, I am sorry we did not get to meet you. As I wrote you, we immediately had an extermination company come in and inspect the premises. They did not find a single bedbug or any other infestation. I anonymously showed them the picture you sent us of the two bites on your arm. They said they are most probably mosquito bites. My husband, who is an MD agrees. Happily we have never had a complaint like this before.
