We are an American/Brazilian couple living in Amsterdam for the last 15 years and we love this city so much!
We would love to welcome you to our place. We like to exchange cultural and personal experiences as we like to travel and meet people too. We will be delighted share what we know about Amsterdam with you - good places to eat, microbreweries, great café terraces and brown cafes, clubs, and neighborhoods, etc.
Our apartment is in a building designated as an architectural monument in Amsterdam. We live on the top two floors of the building and the room we are renting is on the top floor. It has an independent entrance (you don’t have to go through the part of the apartment where we live to get there). The room is a large bedroom with a small balcony with flowers and a modern bathroom (recently renovated) with shower. Bedding and towels are provided and a fast wifi connection is available free of charge. You are welcome to store things in our refrigerator (a bottle of proseco perhaps, some nice dutch cheese you find in a local market) and there is an Albert Hein grocery store close by.
We serve a nice continental breakfast with a selection of cheeses, meats, dutch pancakes, bread, juices, coffee and/or tea free of charge.
We are well located for seeing the sights in Amsterdam. We are located in Amsterdam Zuid (South), in a neighborhood built in the style of the Amsterdam School of Architecture, on a quiet street just off the well-known shopping street - the Beethovenstraat.
On Beethovenstraat there are several restaurants (including Fidelios - our favorite with an excellent dinner menu and a nice outdoor seating area!), three good coffee cafes (including a Starbucks), bakeries, nice shops and boutiques stores.
Our apartment is about a 10-15 minute walk from the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam’s museum of Modern Art), the Concertgebouw, Vondel Park, Beatrix Park and the Albert Cuyp street market in the Pijp neighborhood.
For those of you coming to Amsterdam for business, we are also only a 10 minute walk from Amsterdam South train station, the Amsterdam World Trade Center, the Amsterdam Rai convention center, and the Hilton Hotel.
Getting around by public transportation
We are well located for access to anywhere in Amsterdam and to Schiphol airport by public transportation.
There are 2 trams on Beethovenstraat - the number 5 and the number 24 - that take you to the city center. Its only a 10-15 minute ride to the famous Dam square. Leidseplein, Rembrandtplein, Amsterdam central train station, and the many other places and neighborhoods to see and explore in and around Amsterdam city center.
Getting to our place from Schiphol airport
To get to our place from Schiphol airport is easy and quick. Take any train going to Amsterdam South (Zuid) train station - they run every 10-15 minutes from platforms 1 or 2 at Schiphol. The first stop will be Amsterdam South - a 7 minute ride by train. From there take the number 5 tram headed in the direction of Amsterdam city center (take the north exit out of the train station and walk across the plaza - the tram stop is up the stairs on the left on the bridge). Get off after two stops - the Stadionweg stop (OK if you miss it - just get off at the next stop - the Beethovenstraat stop). Our apartment is about 50 meters down a side street from either the Stadionweg or Beethovenstraat tram stops. Alternatively you can walk to our place from Amsterdam South train station in about 12 minutes. Either way, generally it will take you no more 25-30 minutes to get to our place direct from Schiphol airport. But be sure you take the train to Amsterdam South station, not Amsterdam Central Station! If you catch the train to Amsterdam Central Station by mistake, no problem - you can take the tram 5 or tram 24 from Central Station to the Stadionweg tram stop and voila - you're there.
For those of you coming by car, we are close to both the Amsterdam South (Oud Zuid - S108) and Amsterdam Rai (S109) exits off the A10 - the ring highway around Amsterdam. There is paid parking in our neighborhood. The best deal is the parking site at the old Olympic Stadium which costs 8 euros/day (see map and information at (website hidden)) and includes a free ticket for use for public transportation for the day. The Olympic Stadium is just off the A10 Amsterdam South exit and is about 800 meters or 3 tram stops from our apartment along the Tram 24 line (you would need to get off at the Minervaplein stop). Alternatively,you can park on our street or nearby streets but the cost is higher – € 3 euros per hour between 09.00 and 21.00 hours on Monday through Saturday. Parking at night and on Sundays is free.
We will be very happy to welcome you and do everything to make your visit to Amsterdam a comfortable and enjoyable one. And if you want to drop your luggage off early or leave it with us for a later pick-up after you've checked out, no problem - we'll make arrangements.

Rosie and her husband were perfect hosts for our stay in Amsterdam. The apartment is clean, safe and very conveniently located. Just within 1 minute walk to tram stop which leads to everywhere in the city. We felt very welcome and she always gave us good suggestions for where to visit and provided help to us!
Rosie was very welcoming and accommodating. She is a good resource for things going on in amsterdam. She was very helpful for helping me plan by days. She's great fun too and can give you an interesting perspective on living in amsterdam as an expat.
The room was clean and well furnished and the location central to all the main sites and neighborhoods either by walking or via the trams. This isn't the place to stay if you want to be at party central but if you want a lovely respite after walking around all day in the city, I recommend this place highly. I certainly enjoyed my stay very much.
Rosie was incredibly welcoming and helpful for our first stay in the city. Breakfast offered a great opportunity to find out the best places to visit from Rosie during our trip. The room was spacious and clean and the local area also had real charm. Great location - 10 mins into the city centre with tram lines close by, and easy to get to from the airport too. Would recommend to anyone thinking of taking a trip to Amsterdam.
I had a great stay with Rosie. She was very helpful and friendly and the apartment was in a great location. Highly recommended!
My daughter and I stayed at Rosies for 3 nights and enjoyed The stay. Nice bed, nice breakfast, and Rosie is wonderful. Rosie shared from her own travellexperiences, was welcoming us in a warm way, she was enthusiastic and gave us a lot of good tips to make The best out of our stay in Amsterdam.
The detailed teavellrout Rosie gives in her presentation on airbnb made it easy to go from the AirPort to The flat. We had a great stay at Rosies and recommend staying at her. She is a warm person with a big smile that makes you happy and comfortable.
Our stay with Rosie was great. The room was spacious and it was very handy to have our own bathroom and separate entrance to accommodation. The tram services were frequent and very close to the property. The area was lovely and quiet but the centre was a short tram ride away. We loved our breakfasts when we had the chance to speak to our lovely host Rosie and ask her lots of questions about Amsterdam and other places in the Netherlands. Would definitely stay with her again and recommend her to anyone thinking of visiting Amsterdam!
We stayed in Rosi´s double room for a long weekend. She gave us good tips what to do and we found the place and the people wonderful. It´s a very calm place, you don´t hear any traffic even though it´s only a one minute walk to the tram. By bike we went very quickly to the museums as well as to the center. There´s a cheap bike renter in the same street. The bathroom which belongs to the guest rooms is newly renovated and very chique. We recommend Rosie´s B&B by heart!
Rosie is very welcoming and helpful, is full of good suggestions as to where to go, places to eat and so on, and genuinely keen to make your stay an enjoyable one. The room was wonderfuly warm (this was end January), and both Rosie's restaurant recommendations were spot-on! If, like us, you are planning to be in town primarily for visits to the museums, then Rosie's apartment is perfectly placed. If you know London, it's the equivalent of being in South Kensington or Queensgate, but with much better public transport! The nearest tram stop is only 70 metres away, so getting around town couldn't be easier, and you really are only a few minutes tram ride to the museums, and then on to Central Station. All in all, we had a really great three days. Thank you Rosie!
Rosie was great! Her place was spotless, the coffee was excellent, and Rosie is a gem. The location has such easy access to anything you'd want to check out in Amsterdam. When I'm back in the city, I'm definitely staying with Rosie again.
Lovely, lovely visit chez Rose! She is a warm and hospitable hostess. Room is very quiet and has everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Rose is helpful concerning all transport, eating and tourist info, and a friendly, open person. Great!
