My house is very close to the Vondelpark and some great parts of the city. The canals are 10 minutes away if you take your bike that you can rent at several places around the corner! The Amstelveenseweg is great for food and drinks, as is the hip Oud-West neighborhood. You will enjoy the fact that my apartment is located in a very quiet street with hardly any traffic, whereas the busy amsterdam city life is only a 1 minute walk away. The apartment is suited for couples and solo travellers.
