We had a perfect time in Peter`s apartment. The place is clean and offers enough room for 6 people. Peter was a perfect host. If we needed anything, we could contact him 24 hours a day. The neighborhood is nice, with a good local bar in the same house.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend.
Beautiful older style (updated kitchen and baths) Amsterdam apartment, very convenient to transportation, shops, and restaurants. Peter is an attentive and gracious host, our family had a wonderful stay. Know that the pub downstairs is very lively, especially on the weekend, with friendly staff and excellent food.
Peter was kind enough to let us book his stunning villa for a week which was situated in an amazing location and was everything we could have asked for and more. Although there were plenty of transport links with a tram stop right outside the apartment, we decided to walk every day to the centre of Amsterdam as the journey was beautiful and took about 30-40 minutes. There were plenty of bars, shops and cafes nearby with all you could need and the neighbourhood was pleasant and enjoyable to be in, with an incredible park just across the road. When visiting Amsterdam again, we would definitely stay at this Villa(if Peter would have us again :))
My family of 6 stayed in this beautiful apartment in July, 2018. I made all arrangements with Peter, who was very responsive.
Typical of older buildings in Amsterdam, narrow and steep stairs lead to the apartment, so be aware of this if members your party have mobility issues.
The apartment was clean and tidy, with enough room for my family to sleep, eat, and move around comfortably. Kitchen was well-equipped and had all appliances and amenities one could need. 1/2 bath off kitchen.
Living room area had plenty of seating and the view of the park across the street was a pleasant surprise.
More steep stairs lead to the 3 bedrooms upstairs. Master bedroom had a queen-size bed, which was super comfortable. Two smaller bedrooms: one with a queen bed and one with two twin beds. Two (well stocked) bathrooms complete the upstairs floor.
Best thing about this property is the location. Grocery, restaurants and nightlife are all within walking distance. All major sites are a short ride on the tram, with a stop right outside the apartment.
There is a bar under the apartment, so noise levels can be high if you like to sleep with the windows open. We knew about this before we reserved the apartment and the noise didn't bother us in the least.
I would happily recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a place to stay while visiting the beautiful city of Amsterdam.
Our stay in Peter's apartment Villa Kuijper couldn't have been more suited for my 40th birthday celebrations in Amsterdam. The large kitchen and open lounge was a constant hub of sharing meals, toasting with bubbly and catching up over a drink or two. We were 5 people sharing the 3 bedrooms. The two bathrooms upstairs are well appointed and the showers are both very big for EU standards. I very much appreciated that the mattress on the main bedroom bed was firm.
The bar downstairs allowed us to not have to worry about our social chatty music and noise until 2am over the weekend. The convenience of having a tram right on your doorstep is fabulous! Even the train station is only 5mins walk if you want to catch the faster train.
I was quite set on having a park nearby and the beautiful park right across the road was perfect for a whole afternoon of picnic and celebrations on Saturday.
Peter was extremely helpful with the booking, the different arrival times of guests, and the check out process.
The apartment has everything you could need to spend a lovely time in Amsterdam, whilst feeling like you are staying in someones well appointed apartment. It was great coming home to the apartment after a full day of sightseeing in the city.
The kitchen has everything you could need to make a full cooked meal, dishwasher, dryer, washing machine, and a safe for valuables too.
I would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to go to Amsterdam with family or friends, we really enjoyed the stay.
