Private double room in a canal house dating from 1608 situated on Singel Canal in the oldest part of Amsterdam. Centrally located.
This private room available for the exclusive use of Airbnb-guests is just like an apartment without a kitchen; the room is situated on the first floor at the front of the house. This Airbnb-space includes a large bedroom with exposed oak beams and an authentic brick wall.
Adjacent to the bedroom is your private bathroom (with shower, sink, mirror and toilet) for Airbnb-guests only. Please note that there indeed is a shower in the bathroom, but no bath! In the room itself, there is a double bed consisting out of 2 latex mattresses each measuring 90 x 200 cm. Please note that the bed consists out of TWO single mattresses measuring 90 x 200 cm and not out of one double mattress measuring 180 x 200 cm.
Heating in the room: There are two large radiators in the room located beneath all of the windows and one can adjust the temperature in the room by turning the temperature-knobs on these radiators.
There is also a sitting area with a couch, 2 chairs, cable television, a DVD-player, internet using Wifi as well as internet by the use of a cable. There are lots of books, mostly in the English language on various topics and a computer-desk in the study corner with a chair; a 'laptop friendly workspace' in case you need to get some work done.
On the airbnb-website this space cannot be called an apartment because the space does not include a kitchen. However, there is a coffee machine and a water kettle to make hot beverages. There is a small refrigerator for your convenience as well as cups, glasses, plates and cutlery.
Sheets and towels are 60° Celsius cleaned.
The surface area of the space is ± 50 m2.
Trains, buses and metro are within 5 min. walking distance.
My two cats 'Lucas' and 'Snout' do not enter the Airbnb-space on the first floor. This private room is cat-free.
This private room is situated on the first floor at the front of the house and can be reached by entering the house through the main door, going up the stairs to the first floor. There is no elevator. The stairs are steep. See the photograph of the stairs in the picture-portfolio. Elderly people and people with limited ability need to be aware of this.
During your stay, I will be around for assistance if needed. If desired I will be very happy to give you advice on where to go and what to see to make your visit a memorable one.

At short walking distance from my house (5 min. walk) is the Centraal Station (central train station) where trains can get you to other cities in Holland and from where trams and buses and the metro can take you anywhere in the city.
When you are here I will always explain to you the use of the emergency-exit; on the round bedside-table, there is a key to the window next to the bed. This is your most efficient emergency-exit. Put the key in the lock on the window, the lock will open, open the window and you climb/jump on the roof below. It is very easy.
I live in the same building. My quarters are situated on the ground floor and one room on the first floor on the rear side of the house.
During the day I occasionally will have a violin student come for a lesson, so you may hear some violins playing in the background.
It is important for guests to realize that this private room is situated in a house in the very centre of Amsterdam in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the old city, a house more than 400 years old. This means that the levels of sound isolation required for modern buildings cannot be met without eliminating the charm and character of a 17th Century house. In other words: the sound-isolation in this house is not ideal.
On the floor above the Airbnb-flat, the upstairs neighbours live. They are two professionals sharing an apartment. They try to be quiet because they are aware of the fact there is a guest-room below them.

Amazing stay at Evert's
Evert deserves more than a 5-star rating! He is such an amazing, kind and helpful host. It started right after our request when he messaged me to confirm our booking. He sent us very detailed information on how to find his flat. Since we arrived in the morning, Evert happily offered to let us leave our luggage until the official check-in time at 3 pm. Same at the check-out! About the room: Wow! It looks exactly as in the pictures. It's beyond clean and you find anything you need (Nespresso coffee, a wide range of tea, even cookies and delicious chocolate!). Evert's flat is located in the city centre which we really appreciated. Although the flat is in the heart of Amsterdam it was quiet and we felt like staying in a lovely and neat suburban area. Evert has two adorable and very curious cats. They love to be petted and I recommend you to obey ;-)! The staircase is really steep but if you are in good health it's totally manageable. I highly recommend Evert as a host and we would definitely stay at his room again!March 2019
Beautiful & Wonderful location, A+ Stay in Amsterdam
5+ stars - Evert’s place is not only in the best location (in my opinion), but it is also so beautifully designed and decorated. Evert really has a great eye and I absolutely LOVED the apartment studio!!! It had a wonderful view from all the windows of the canal, and yet was so private and quiet at night (as opposed to a lot of other neighborhoods in Amsterdam). The surrounding area and Jordaan is absolutey beautiful and perfect for those looking for a quiet and scenic escape in Amsterdam away from all the partying and red light district craziness (which is only 10 minutes away if you want it but honestly this place is not really for you if that’s the focus of your trip). There’s lots of cafes, bike rentals, shopping, and very good restaurants only 5 min walking away. At the Airbnb I had all the amenities and home comforts such as tea & coffee, shampoo & fresh towels, bed slippers. Evert also left out a variety of guidebooks and tips for the area, which are always helpful! The bed is comfy and so was the desk to work from—Tons of room to relax and spread out. I do want to point out that this studio is on the 2nd floor and not for anyone who can’t do stairs... however these windy tall stairs are very typical of traditional Dutch houses. That being said, it was not an issue for my stay and I even had help bringing my luggage up. Evert is a great and communicative host, highly responsive and so polite and respectful! He made sure my stay was comfortable and getting the keys was very easy. I also needed my bags stored and he accommodated me and made sure my things were safe. I was very impressed :) Thank you Evert for a wonderful experience and a perfect home away from home in Amsterdam. I’m looking forward to coming back and I hope to stay with you again! Aloha, DeborahApril 2019
Accueil parfait par l'hôte. Chambre privée, parfait pour couple sans enfant. Emplacement idéal pour visiter AmsterdamMay 2019
Classy room in 17th Century Canal House
This AirBnB is the best we've experienced. It is a real gem! Exquisite surrounds and an excellent host who responds to questions and is extremely helpful. The canal house is located very near Centraal Station, the 9 streets shopping area and a wonderful array of restaurants and cafes. We highly recommend it!!May 2019
Stay at Classy room 17th Century Canal House

Historic Canal Home in a Perfect Location
How fun it was to stay in a historic canal home near City Center. Short walk from Central Station and also walkable to riverboat cruise ships. We highly recommend to travelers who want to experience “real” Amsterdam!June 2019
Surpassed our expectations
Everything that we thought we knew about Evert’s apartment turned out to be true. And then some. Location. Spacious. Clean. Comfortable. Evert is a generous host with a sense for what travelers need. The apartment was so inviting and relaxing that we were torn between soaking in as much of Amsterdam as possible and just chilling in the apartment. Highly recommended!July 2019
Such a great place!
This room is just beautiful, filled with beautiful art and books, and is in the most excellent location with views of the canal from the window. Strongly recommended!August 2019

Quaint and Comfortable
We loved being able to stay in the heart of Amsterdam, the variety of restaurants nearby and being able to walk to museums and galleries. The stairs are steep and narrow, typical of Dutch houses, it is part of the charm. The room is exceptionally spacious. We were greeted and made feel very welcome.August 2019
