Lovely light and bright, fully furnished and equipped first floor apartment in the Old South neighbourhood of Amsterdam, close to public transport and conveniently located for Schiphol airport. Beautifully decorated, large (105m2) classic 1920's style apartment with high ceilings and many original features including wood flooring, corniced ceiling etc. Living room in turn connects to the study which can be fully closed off and turned into a 2nd bedroom with double sofa bed if required.

Beautifully decorated, large (105m2) classic 1920's style apartment with high ceilings and many original features including wood flooring, corniced ceiling etc. Living room in turn connects to the study which can be fully closed off and turned into a 2nd bedroom with double sofa bed if required. Master bedroom with extremely comfortable Californian King Size bed located at the back of the property. (Note that neither the sofa bed nor the bed in the master bedroom can be split into separate beds!) Well equipped typical Amsterdam style galley kitchen, 1 bathroom with bath and shower, separate washing machine and dryer. Easy access to balconies with little seats to the back and the font of the property. When the flat is not let out, I stay there myself most weekends which means it is fully equipped and instantly inhabitable at the start of the tenancy.This means no need to buy or bring staples such as coffee, toilet paper, pepper and salt, detergent or a hairdryer - I just ask you to replenish if you run out of something. It also means that (apart from the bathroom) the flat is not 'empty'. I normally put personal items and family pictures away but as you can see from the pictures it is very homely. Neighbourhood While Old South is a classic residential neighbourhood, local supermarket (Albert Heijn), a green grocer, cobbler, Amsterdam's famous French bakery (Le Fournil), and a cheese and delicatessen shops (L'Amuse), flower stalls, a Bookshops (Ako) and bike rental can all be found within a few hundred yards of the flat. The apartment is also located within easy walking distance of the up market shops in the Beethovenstraat and the Vondelpark. Public transport: Tram 24 (2 mins walk) provides access to the centre, Amsterdam Zuid's train station can be reached with bus 15 (2 mins walk, 5 mins journey) or on foot (10 mins walk). Regular trains from Amsterdam Zuid take you to Schiphol airport in 7 minutes. More

Thank you so much Rusanne for taking the time to write a review, it is much appreciated. Glad to see you enjoyed the location as much as we do - lively but not in the central tourist area.
