Apartment description

This apartment will offer you insight into the history of Amsterdam itself. It was built over 400 years ago and still boasts many of its original characteristics. The Authentic Jordaan is located on the Binnen Wieringerstraat, in the historic centre of Amsterdam. Not much can be found about this nameless house in the archives of Amsterdam. It is built against the old sea dike that protected Amsterdam in the times before the Oranjesluis or the Aflsuitdijk were built.

On one side of this charming little street connects to the Brouwersgracht (Brewers canal) and on the other side it connects to the Haarlemmerstraat. This historic house was built around 1620. It is one of the few houses that still boast its original gable, which is a classical renaissance crow-stepped gable; this is a stair-step type of design at the top of the triangular gable-end of a building.

Not only the gable is still original, the interior with its solid oak beams as well as the steep staircases are original. It is not hard to imagine a Dutch merchant family doing business from this very location.

From the hallway the first set of stairs leads to the first floor of the house. Every room in the house has its own adjustable radiators, it is quite easy to keep this house warm and comfortable in winter. As each room also has windows, it is quite easy to create a nice breeze in the house cooling it down in the summer. There are also fans available on the rare summer days that it is actually tropical.

On the first floor is the living/dining/kitchen. This floor has a beautiful wooden floor as well as beams supporting the floor above. In the front (street side) of this floor there is a spacious living area with sofa’s and widescreen SMART TV. This is a great area to relax.

Away from the street there is a large dining table in the back of this floor. You will find an open kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped including a fridge, dishwasher, oven, microwave, kettle, coffeemaker and so on.

It is not hard to imagine enjoying a spending an evening with a good diner and equally good conversations at the dining table with dimmed light shining from the chandelier. With ample heating present, the smells from the kitchen and friends swapping stories at the table, this is typically what the Dutch will call “gezellig”. The word “gezellig” is considered to be an example of untranslatability, and is one of the hardest words to translate. Some consider the word to encompass the heart of Dutch culture.

The back-house is a more recent addition to the building and is most likely only 200 years old. In the back house we have installed a washing machine/dryer as well as a full bathroom with bath tub, standing shower, toilet and double vanity sink.

One floor up with the beautiful open stairs there is the floor with two bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate toilet. There is one (twins) in the back, and the master bedroom in the front on the street side (optional with twins, on request). The bedrooms do not have attic rooms above them so you can see the beams that support the pointed roof 4 meters higher. On this floor located in between the two bedrooms is the bathroom with a sink and a rain shower, there is also a separate toilet.

The beautiful antique wooden roof-beams are visible here, instilling one with a deep sense of history that is present throughout the entire house.

Location description

The house is built against the old sea dike that protected Amsterdam. On one side of this charming little street there is the Brouwersgracht (brewers canal) and on the other side there is the Haarlemmerstraat.

From the Brouwersgracht one has access to the entire canal ring and this is a great spot to relax and watch the boats go by. The many restaurants and bars in the canal ring and Jordaan area are just a few minutes walking away.

The Haarlemmerstraat is a shopping street with many boutique shops and this street has been voted as the best shopping street of the Netherlands for three years running, due to its wide variety of shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, galleries and antique shops.

About Wytse

I grew up in the hospitality business, with my parents running hotels and/or restaurants. Since 2005 I have been actively offering short stay apartment rentals in Amsterdam. In 2008 I purchased the Sonnenberg and have been managing the property ever since.

I love to share my experience of the wonderful city of Amsterdam. In my opinion the best way to see the city is with friends on an open canal boat on a nice day or evening.

Wytse purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Wytse chose Grachtengordel

I live in this property myself, or at least on the ground floor, the top house is all Authentic Jordaan. The awesome thing about the area is that it still has the unique charm of a small time neighborhood, and everybody knows each other.

What makes this apartment unique

- Location

- historic charm

- newly renovated

- 2 full bathrooms

Guestbook comments from the manager

We liked the atmosphere of the house and the typically "Amsterdam-Design". The owner was very friendly and accomodating. Had some drinks sitting in front of the house on the street (with chairs) and we´ve enjoyed it.

Beautiful Apartment, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful stay and I highly recommend this property. It was immaculate, beautifully decorated and bright. The kitchen was well-equipped and the appliances were new. The property manager, Wyste, was highly-responsive, communicated with me regularly prior to our stay, and provided detailed instructions upon arrival. The location was a 10-minute walk to Central Station and near restaurants and shopping. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Wyste!

Excellent House, location and host

  • 5 of 5

Very convenient to the station and to tram lines but in a quiet street. House is recently refurbished and the work has been done with love, thought and care. 2 bedrooms are both large doubles and the separate full bathroom downstairs would be useful if rented by 2 couples. Kitchen is well equipped with a large dining table and a huge lounge the other side of the stairs. Location is great, close to restaurants, shops and as previously mentioned trams and the main station. Would recommend this to couples or families for a holiday any season of the year. Although remember it is a historic house so has the stairs to go with it!!!

I’d highly recommend this apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this apartment. The location is great, between a busy shopping street with lots of shops and restaurants and a quiet canal. The apartment itself was newly refurbished, the kitchen was very well equipped and the open plan living room / kitchen is bright and spacious. The weather was bitterly cold when we stayed here, some of the canals even froze, but the apartment was always lovely and warm.

The owner was very friendly and helpful and I’d highly recommend this apartment.

Incredible experience in the best location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a TRUE Amsterdam experience, the property is right in the center of Amsterdam with all of the attractions at walking distance. The Haarlemmerstraat offers great boutique shopping and plenty of restaurants, and the Jordaan and canals are right at your doorstep. The owner is very responsive and the place was cleaned well upon our arrival.

Highly recommend.

Great apartment for groups, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Authentic Jordaan Apartment during the summer. We were 4 adults and 3 children (6, 5 and 3 years). Check-in and communication with Wytse was very easy and the apartment was well equipped and furnished. The children loved the novelty of climbing up and down the traditional steep stairs and the open plan kitchen-dining-lounge area was perfect for our family holiday. The traditional style of the house was really endearing - our group was from the UK and Australia so we loved being in a traditional Amsterdam house.The location was in a great spot for transport links around Amsterdam and also for excursions out of the city and getting to the airport. Plenty of supermarkets, shops and restaurants on your doorstep too. Highly recommend for groups and families too.

Within 400 meters of the apartment you can find many shops and restaurants. The shops are all of a boutique type, so no usual suspects in this area. The restaurants vary from good value student restaurants to top of the bill, and from Tibetan cuisine to soul food, from breakfast to deli take outs.

For children and adults of all ages there are two playgrounds in the direct area, with climbing racks, swings, sandboxes, football pitch and basketball court. Must see Museums within about 15-20 minutes walking/tram include; Anne Frank house, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam Historical Museum and Canal House Museum. But there are at least 30 or 40 other museums nearby that are also worth visiting.

Without writing down an entire guide to the city of Amsterdam, this location will give you an excellent base to discover the many aspects of this world famous cosmopolitan city.
