About This Listing
Great little house! It's perfect for a couple or a group of three friends looking to have an adventure in beautiful Amsterdam!
The house is 15min from the centre by tram and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It's clean and tidy too!
My house is a perfect little home base for two to three people when you're seeing Amsterdam. It's clean, has all the things you'll need and it's easy to get into town. It's just like in the pictures but i have changed a couple of pictures on the wall in the mean time so it's not and exact replica but better ;)
It has a 160cm double bed in the bedroom (TV with DVD's & HDMI cable), bathroom (with a bathtub...a luxury in Amsterdam), living room (large pull out sofa bed, TV with HDMI cable), kitchen and a sunny balcony with sun from 1pm untill the evening (8-9 depending on the time of year). There is also a good fast wifi connection, cable TV nice for an evening in. Bed linens and towels are provided.
My house is pretty close to the city centre. It's 12min by bike, you can also get the tram 14 which brings you straight to Dam Square in 15-20 min.The tram stop is right around the corner so it's easy to get into town. It is also close to a P+R which is 9euro for 24hours and includes public transport tickets to and from the parking.
The Erasmus park is a 2min walk away and a great place to relax. There's also a nice neighborhood cafe right round the corner on the canal with a big terras great for chilling out after a long day. There are the necessary shops right around the corner and the larger supermarket is a 5min walk away.
If you have any questions about the house i'm happy to help! :)
I am travelling when I'm renting my house out so! What will happen is that I will send you an email with the info you need and the contact info of the person you can meet for the key.

It's quiet and has everything needed. This part of the city is getting lots of quality cute cafe's near by well worth it to take a stroll down to the Erasmus Park or hop on the tram to the nearby

Other Things to Note
Just before i left i decided to paint my living room wall a beautiful light grey and change the art work around. I didn't have time to take pics but the house is the same for the rest. I hope you like the new look ;)

3.Treat my house with care and try to leave it as you found it, if something breaks don't worry about it just let me know so i can replace it.

We, 3 of us, stayed at Sophie's place for 3 days for a family trip. The flat was exactly what is shown in the pictures, tidy and clean and with a lot of natural light. We simply loved her style. The pity was we couldn't meet neither her nor her friend Alisa in person but her little tips through the online guide turned to be very helpful. Communication around keys was fluent via Alisa -Sophie's friend. She promptly replied to our mails and questions.
In conclusion this is a cozy flat, ideally located to discover Amsterdam by bike. Tram and car park nearby as well. We will be back :)
We had a great weekend in AMS, the appartment was really beautiful, quiet and cozy.
Thanks a lot, Sophie!
Sehr schöne, geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnung in guter Lage (hervorragende Anbindung an öffentliche Verkehrsmittel und das Jordaan-Viertel ist leicht fußläufig erreichbar). Für 2-3 Personen sehr empfehlenswert. Die Beschreibung passte sehr gut und die Kommunikation war problemlos. Zum Parken haben wir für EUR 15 pro Tag das Ramadan-Hotel gewählt (ca. 15 Minuten zu Fuß von der Wohnung entfernt), nachdem es bzgl. der P&R-Parkplatzes im Internet Hinweise auf Sicherheitsprobleme gab, welche uns vom Sicherheitspersonal beim Parkhaus vor Ort auch bestätigt wurden).
Small flat, ideally located to discover Amsterdam by bike. Tram and car park nearby as well. Communication around keys fluent via Sophie's friends. Our mails with questions & remarks during our stay were promptly answered as well, although the technical issue around internet/TV could not be resolved during our short stay. The neighbor's internet worked fine though.
We, 3 of us, stayed at Sophies places at Kings day for 3 days. It was very awesome. It was very tidy and clean. We felt like we are at our own home at the very first step. Home is exactly what is shown in the pictures. In fact it is much more beatiful. We loved her style and definitely will stay her place next time. We couldnt meet but her little tips was very helpful :) Thank you for the cosy home Sophie. Hope to see you soon
Sophie was a fantastic host. Her communication was friendly and prompt and her tips for restaurants and bars etc were spot on in terms of what we like. We felt like we were visiting an old friend - this is the sort of trip that makes you appreciate Airbnb. :)
The prosecco was a great welcome, especially after the traffic we encountered on the way! Sophie's apartment has everything you need for self-catering and comfortably accommodates 3 people. I'd happily return to this apartment if we ever head back to Amsterdam and would recommend to friends also.
It's nice to be away from the central tourist attractions but they are still easily reached by public transport/biking/canal boat. Definitely hire a boat for your own canal tour if you get the chance, we had a great time exploring in the sun!
