“Great Amsterdam experience and location”
Reviewed 31 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The owner, Simon, was very helpful during our email correspondence. He met us at the apartment as arranged and spent a long time going through possible visits and locations. The apartment is in an old, traditional Amsterdam tall house, and is quite old-fashioned but very roomy and comfortable. Certainly steep stairs but this is normal for Amsterdam. Very good location, easy walking distance to Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum and very close to tram stop. Also quite an easy walk in to the centre of Amsterdam besides canals. We made use of the 4 free bikes. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam with a teenager and a 20 year old, also made lovely trips by train to Utrecht, Delft and Den Haag.

“I felt comfortable right from my initial enquiry”

From my first email to Simon to enquire if this property was available on the dates we were to visit Amsterdam, I found him to be more than helpful. This continued all the way through even to his phoning and booking the taxi for our return trip to the airport. Our daughter and grandson LOVED the location and disappeared within minutes to explore the surrounding area. The apartment was spacious with more than enough room for the four of us. I wanted an "authentic" Dutch experience, rather than a hotel and we certainly got that.

“An experience of life in old Amsterdam”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Well served by public transport and with lots of activities in walking distance. The free bikes were great for longer trips like a ride in the park. The apartment is a wonderful experience of old Amsterdam.
Simon and Giselle are very thoughtful and helpful hosts.

“Pleasent House”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

The house has a good location, near to supermarket (3min walk) and near to public transportation (2min walk).
It is a tradition dutch house, with narrow strairs and hard to climb.

The kindness of our hosts was extraordinary.

The process of the holiday rental was very simple.

Simon and Gisele are generous and helpful hosts - absolutely outstanding.
The apartment is historic but extremely spacious and comfortable. If you want something different that gives you a taste of living in old Amsterdam in a fascinating building this is for you. Spacious, light and quite.
