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.

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.


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.

"Stylish Flat in good area"

This really is a lovely flat in a quiet but convenient area. We are a family of 4 and the flat was perfect for us. The rooms are large with high ceilings and so there is a real feeling of space.
The flat is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. It felt like a real home from home.
It is in the "Old South" which is close to Vondelpark and within easy walking distance of Museum Square.
Traveling from the Airport is really easy, it is one stop on the train and then less than 10 minutes walk
Next time we are in Amsterdam (which is a great city) we will definately stay here.

"Beautiful appartment in nice quiet area with goof transport links in centre of Amsterdam"

Just spent 3 nights at Parnassus. It is a lovely, bright and spacious appartment with everything you need and a nice homely feel. The tram to the centre of Amsterdam is close by and is very efficient. It is easy to get to from the airport and there are shops including a supermarket just around the corner. The owner was very hlepful. i would definitely recommend it.

"Couldn't Have Been Better"

Parnassus is located in a quiet, more residential section of Amsterdam which makes it perfect for getting away from the hustle and crowds of the tourist areas; yet the transportation connections are very good - quick and reliable. Elise, who is the rental contact, is a wonderful hostess - she answered all emails promptly and went to great pains to make our stay comfortable and stressless - even to the added touch of welcome treats. This is a family's apartment so everything you need is provided; but because it's a family home guests should be prepared to be careful and considerate of their surroundings. There are full service grocery shops and stores nearby for any provisions needed. The rooms are a good size with a galley kitchen and full living room. Closet space is at a premium though.
All in all an excellent rental accommodation.
