We enjoyed 3 nights in Amsterdam and found Johan's place to be comfortable. He greeted us and explained things but he is busy and that's all we saw of him. The tram is an easy 5 minute walk and 20 minutes to downtown. The house has all the basic necessities and parking is easy and grocery store around the corner. The back garden is nice with the canal and the neighbourhood is a quiet respite from busy and noisy Amsterdam. Lots of space for a family.
We had a lovely time at Johan's house in the summer. It is a very nice house to stay in with a beautiful garden. It's not far away from the city centre, although it can take a while with the tram because of the traffic during certain times. We found renting bikes was the best solution for getting around, all the better to enjoy the weather. The city itself has seperate bike lanes everywhere, so it was a nice experience. All in all it was a nice place to come home to, and Johan was very helpful when we needed it. I would definitely consider coming back.
Johan's place is very comfortable. It is as pictured and he has everything at your disposable to make it your home away from home. He was accommodating of our early arrival and flexible with our check out time.
We booked for 3 people. There is one bedroom (one double and one single bed), where the shower is located and the second (big) bed is just outside of this bedroom in the roomy office space next to the living room space. It is not a separate room so no door to close off the space just a partition from the LV to the 2nd bed. There is a second bedroom upstairs if the party is more than 4. So, do confirm the confirm the room arrangements if you need 2 separate rooms with doors.
It is a 20minute tram ride to de Roos in Vondelpark. It was perfect for us as we had a weekend workshop there. Very convenient.
It was great to be able to use the garden and relax at the end of the day. It really makes you feel like a local.
Best part is that you can do Instant Booking and not have to wait for a reservation confirmation once you finally decide on a place.
You were great guests. It was interesting to read that you visited De Roos. I was Chairman of the Board 5 years ago of this centre in the Vondelpark. Congratulations that you have passed. I might visit you for a treatmenty!
And you are welcome anytime. Book directly via me. Thats is cheaper.
Johan's place is the perfect spot to enjoy Amsterdam! Quiet and safe neighborhood, large space, amazing garden facing the water (we were lucky that the weather allowed us to enjoy the garden everyday!!)and Johan's place is exquisitely decorated!! We had an incredible stay and we highly recommend it for a short trip to Am'dam!!
I've been backpacking through Europe with my brothers for the past 2 weeks and Johan's home was the first place that actually felt like home. There was food in the refrigerator, television, and just an overall home-like atmosphere. It was right along a beautiful canal. Very relaxing. Short tram ride to Amsterdam. I would 100% recommend this to anybody traveling through Amsterdam!
We had a great week with Johan's apartment. He was a very friendly host and his apartment was beautiful. The pictures described the apartment exactly like it is. The next station to the city is 5min away and it takes 15min to the centre. Shopping is right next to the station. Next time, definitely in Johans apartment if its available. Hope to be back in winter again.
Wir haben zu viert Amsterdam in den Osterferien besucht.
Spontan haben wir noch die Wohnung von Johan gefunden.
Hatten zunächst Angst, dass die Bilder nicht der Realität entsprechen :)) aber es war unberechtigt. Die Wohnung sieht tatsächlich so aus. Eine sehr saubere, gemütliche und zugleich sehr große Wohnung die auch mehr Leute aufnehmen könnte.
Johan haben wir leider nicht persönlich kennengelernt. Umso stärker waren wir über sein entgegengebrachtes Vertrauen erfreut.
Besonders toll war die Möglichkeit morgens zu Frühstücken (Kühlschrank war voll) Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind ganz in der Nähe. Auch ein großer Park. Wohnung ist tagsüber leicht mit der Straßenbahn zu erreichen. Nachts dagegen leider schwer. (aber es fahren Nachbusse) Dafür liegt aber die Wohnung in einem ruhigen Viertel...
Wenn man Abends ausgeht und nach 1 Uhr nach Hause fährt oder nach dem Feiern, spät in der Nacht, ist es ratsam ein Taxi zu nehmen. (vom Zentrum 25-30€)
Alles in einem eine super Wohnung! Ich denke wir kommen wieder.
Johan hat den Check Out Termin noch um weitere 2 Std. verlängert. Das fanden wir besonders zuvorkommend
