This cozy home for rent in Otrobanda is a real example of traditional downtown living in the charming Rif Area. It is part of the ‘Vier-Stegen-Plan’, which was the first major restoration project in the small downtown alleys in the early nineties.
As you approach the house the first thing you notice is its small front porch. This narrow strip works as a barrier to the street. You can see yourself sitting here in the late afternoon to chat with your neighbors passing by. Inside, a wide L-shaped corridor connects the downstairs spaces. As this corridor is wide enough, you could create a study corner or reading nook here. From here you reach the stairs, living room, kitchen and backdoor to the private garden.
The large living room has beautiful wooden floors and overlooks the private walled garden terrace. The terrace has a few large planters and can be turned into a wonderful little oasis in the middle of town. A covered space for a washing machine is located here as well as a separated area where you can hang laundry.
When you go up the stairs you enter into the bedroom. This room also has beautiful hardwood floors and shuttered windows on three sides. This light and airy room almost feels like a room in a tower. The views over the roofs of Otrobanda are amazing on all sides. You can even see the top of the cruise ships from the window!
You will find the downstairs kitchen and bathroom in good condition. The kitchen is painted in a traditional red and has a traditional double-hung door to the outside.
You will be very comfortable in this two story unit in the complex, as it can be accessed both from the front and the back and it only shares one downstairs wall with a neighbor. For a traditional and centrally located home for rent in Otrobanda you cannot go wrong with this comfortable house.
