You are transported back in time to 1693 in this comfortable one-bedroom apartment for rent on the Kuiperstraat 2B, Punda. It is located above the Post Museum in the heart of the city in the oldest dated building in historical Willemstad.
From a quiet street you go up one flight of communal stairs to the front door of this home. A spacious living room opens up onto wide and private balcony, with enough space for a little seating area and a hammock. On this floor you will also find the spacious modern kitchen with room for a breakfast nook and a small internal service balcony.
The beautiful wooden stairs lead you to the large master bedroom on the top floor. The high vaulted ceilings make it feel even larger than it is. To one side there is enough space for a king size bed, while on the other side there is space for a closet area or even some additional seating.
The main building was built in the 17th century, while the typical wooden balcony dates back to the 18th century. The Delft blue tiles on the IJssel river stone wall are an original feature. During the restoration the tiles were carefully removed. They were then sent to the Netherlands to clean up and returned to their original location.
The apartment for rent shares a communal entrance and staircase with another apartment and a small office. There is a camera system in place that can be reconnected. Due its position on the second and third floor and its sturdy wooden shutters, you will feel very sheltered in this apartment for rent.
