Bright 3-room appartment on lovely KNSM-Island

Bright modern appartment of 115m2 on lovely KNSM-Island. The appartment is situated on the 3rd floor (elevator). Five large windows offer a panoramic view of the area overlooking water and livingboats, and give lots of natural light. The house is modern and double glazing with central heating ensures the house is warm. We have wooden floors and Portuguese tiles by the kitchen.

The living room with two couches and a loveseat (for our cat) overlooks the water and is connected to a fully equipped, spacious, open-kitchen with dining area. Being coffee lovers we have a Vibiemme and a Mazzer grinder.

We have a beautiful and unique wooden table with the contours of a treetrunk salvaged from the provincial spatial planning service. The table easily fits 6 people, and a cosy 8. The living room is adjacent to the 'library' and study room. The study offers two desks overlooking a small park facing West with large windows.

The apartment has one large bedroom with a kingsize bed (180cm X 200cm) and a large window facing West. There is an additional room where a guest could stay with an airmattress. The bathroom has a rainshower as well as a 2-person bathtub. The hallway offers access to a toilet as well as a room with a washer and dryer. Outside we have a bench which overlooks the courtyard of our complex. You are welcome to use our bikes while staying here.

We hope you'll love cats. Taking care of playful Tash, our blue russian, is part of the arrangement.

About Me
Lisa is an assistant professor in marine biology at Wageningen University who will have a sabbatical at Cal and Cal Academy. Peter is a mathematician and manages Dutch pension funds assets. We live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, with our cat Tash. We love good food and are happy to share a list of our favorite restaurants and markets in the city. We also regularly visit art exhibitions and in particular we are members of Club Foam of the Photography Museum Amsterdam, which organises lectures, events and meetings related to contemporary photography. We are coming to San Francisco for a sabbatical for two months from March-April 2020. We’d be happy to do a homeswap for 2 weeks or more during this period. Or we're also interested in renting in SF. We’re quite flexible, so are open to different options.
