Unique High End Canal House
This canal house on the Prinsengracht is completely renovated. Until recently we lived there ourselves and it is beautifully decorated (silk curtains, luxurious beds, quality equipment and two bathrooms). Additionally, the location and view is exceptional. Eefje is a interior decorator, which you can clearly see...
As our apartment is located at a corner, there are 7 big windows overlooking the canals which makes the apartment unique!
The apartment comprises 2 spacious bedrooms, including a master bedroom ensuite and a smaller bedroom with 2 single beds that can be put together to create a double bed also ensuite.
The apartment also features a large open plan kitchen/lounge area with lovely fireplace. The whole place is very tastefully furnished.
Our apartment is in the centre of Amsterdam on the South part of the canals near the 'Spiegelgracht' where all the art galleries are.

Say YES to Amsterdam!
Our stay at the High End Canal House was fantastic. Our host could not have been nicer, and the location was fantastic. We walked all over the great city of Amsterdam, enjoying the great vibrancy, food, beauty, culture and museums. When we ventured out of the city, public transportation was easy and nearby. After full days of sightseeing, we came home to the well appointed flat that was charming and cozy, but the perfect size for two couples. We stayed on the run because there was much to see, but we would have also been content to simply enjoy the lovey views from the windows of boats meandering along the canals and the locals on bicycles. Amsterdam is very special place! Although is is bustling and busy, I was struck with how harmonious Amsterdam seems. No-one is hurried, impatient, pushing or honking. Instead, it is quiet, peaceful and stunningly beautiful. We will return!”
Unique High End Canal House
It could not have been more perfect. The canal house is in a ideal location and really gave you the feeling as though you were a local just living in the neighborhood. It’s really everything you want. As it has been said and other reviews, the steps are a bit tricky but that’s really nothing in comparison to everything else you get. At the end of the day it was nice to sit beside the big windows with them open and view the people going by on the streets and in the canal and the owners are fabulous. We cannot wait to return. ”
Memorable family moments
We expected a beautiful trip to Amsterdam when we reserved this apartment a few months ago, but were enchanted at how the location and beauty of this place facilitated our voyage. Close to everything you need to see, by walk or water-transportation (there is a boat CitySightSeeing stop in front of the door ! ), it helped a lot in finding what we expected. The very cozy place is also furbished with taste, in a very european way all the family loved. Thanks for everything ! Probably in the top 3 travels we had as a family !”
COOL CANAL HOUSE
We totally loved our visit to Amsterdam. The apartment is in a great location right near the Rijksmuseum and the "9 streets of shopping" - yay. Wonderful space to sit and watch the world go by with the large windows - the view across the canal was mesmerizing - the boats and other houses with their different gables. Situated in a quiet part of the city yet so close to everything. The very steep steps kept us fit but would not be suitable for someone with mobility issues. Getting the suitcases up and down was fun! Wonderfully comfortable beds and well equiped kitchen make for an easy stay. Thank you to the charming owners for opening their home to us. We would so love to return one day. ”
Beautiful apartment in an excellent location
Had a fantastic week in Amsterdam. The apartment is in a perfect location. Bike rental is 1.5 blocks away and canal boats stop about 100ft away. Short walk to many excellent restaurants and museums. The apartment is very comfortable and well decorated with in house washer and dryer and a well equipped kitchen. The Dutch people are very friendly and we had no problem getting by speaking only English. It was an easy taxi ride from and to the airport, definitely do not rent a car. Thank for Cazijn for letting us stay at your home and for the helpful recommendations.”
