Apartment advice in Amsterdam

I'm going in the fall with my husband and teenage daughter and we definitely want 2 bedrooms. I've been looking on cityden.com and found a few I like. For anyone who has been there or lives there, can you tell from the descriptions I have copied below if either or both of these are in good locations? We are fairly fit and like to walk, I prefer to take transit as little as possible so I'm hoping one of these is within walking distance of most major attractions.

Thanks for any info you can provide!

We are going to Amsterdam Fall 2017 as well. Booked a two bedroom two bath place in the Jordaan thru Air BNB. Located near museums. Check that out as well. Safe travels!

mpeacock - I looked at both apartments and locations. I am quite familiar with these areas as we have spent six weeks nearby at an apt. on the Herengracht. I think you would enjoy the Keizergracht apt. far more than the Lindenstraat. It is more central and closer to things you want to see and do. It's also on a canal. You can easily walk to the museumplein or waterlooplein area from the Keizergracht location. At the Lindenstraat apt. you're not close to much other than the Westergasfabriek, Noordermarkt (love), Anne Frank Huis, and Winkels (love, love, love the apple pie!).
I would suggest going to Winkel's for apple pie and fresh whipped cream and if you are there on a Saturday you can combine with a morning stroll through the Noordermarkt. Who says you can't have apple pie for breakfast?

Oh no! I just booked the Lindendwarsstraat one! It was about $100 less expensive a night than the other one. We like to walk so hopefully it won't be too bad.

That apt. will be fine. You'll just have to walk farther to get to things.
