This cozy furnished 1 bedroom apartment (60m2) is suitable for everyone who likes to experience the local ambiance of Amsterdam but without compromising on luxury. The apartment is on the ground floor with floor heating, and equipped with everything you need on your holiday. With a fully equipped kitchen, washing machine/dryer and dish washer. The bedroom has a big double bed with a direct entrance to the garden which has a barbecue and a large diner table for diner outside or a glass of wine on the summer evenings. We are both long time residents of Amsterdam and we would love to show you the lovely bars, restaurant and activities that Amsterdam has to offer and that are aligned with your budget. If you are staying longer than a weekend we will provide you with a free cleaning service.
The area you will be staying is within walking distance of the Rijksmuseum, the Concert building, the luxury shopping street the P.C Hooftstraat and the regional market the Albert Cuyp. It is very central but the street itself is very quite. You won’t hear any trams or cars in the bedroom so a good night sleep is guaranteed, although it is just a 2 min. walk to the tramstation (line 3,5,12,16 and 24). A night shop, a supermarket and a bakery are around the corner so you can just run to the stores if you need anything. The area oud-zuid is characterized as the “posh” area of Amsterdam. But in this part of the area, because it is no near to the city Centre it is not so excluded as other areas of oud-zuid. You will find a mix of people in this street, there is a photo studio across from our house, a car garage next to it and a bit further up the street a typical Dutch café/restaurant where they serve the best steak and chips. So everyone will feel welcome in this area!
With kind regards Michael & Janneke

Other Things to Note
I also have a boat which you can rent for 25 euros an hour, you get me as a captain for free!
About the house rules, please treat my house like your own. I don't charge cleaning costs so I expect the house is left in good order. I prefer if you smoke a lot, to go the garden, please mind the neighbors, no noise after 11 o'clock in the garden.
Nice and cozy appartment. Just a short walk to the Vondelpark (Museum area) and with a tram line very close too. A very good supermarket close too. Michael was very easy to access by email, helping us with everything we asked. Thanks Michael, we love it!
Apartamento a 20 minutos del centro. Pequeño pero perfecto para un fin de semana con amigos. El anfitrión nos ha respondido todas nuestras dudas.
This is the second time we have stayed at Michael's apartment- he is a great host, and apartments is so convenient to bus, trams, museums. The neighborhood is great and several nice restaurants in easy walking distance. We certainly plan to return when we come back to Amsterdam!
Thanks for everything. The appartment is as the photos shows. Very nice and close to restaurants, and Museumplein. We sleep well, afraid to be coll, but finally, the heating comes from the flood.
Micheal let us leave when we want, Very nice of him.
If we'll come back at Amsterdam, we will stay for sure. And by the way, the city is as pleasant as possible, even with rain !
We loved our stay in Michael's apartment. He was a very friendly and welcoming host and was there to meet us when we arrived to give us some tips about what to do. He also sent us a list of restaurant recommendations. The apartment was the perfect size for 3 people and close to restaurants and the main shopping area. We could walk everywhere from the apartment which was great. It has a cosy bedroom with a good amount of storage space, a well-equipped kitchen and a big dining table in case you want to eat in. The double sofa bed was comfortable. We would definitely recommend staying here!
The location of the apartment is excellent to discover Amsterdam. The public transport is just 5 min away and brings you to the centre and the museums. Inside it is just like you can see in the pictures. Modern and cosy. However, there was a mouse that we easily blocked in its hole and hope that Micheal has already dealt with it. Michael was a great host and interested that we have a good time in Amsterdam. He was very generous with suggestions for sightseeing and dining/going out options.
We are two students from Amsterdam who love to travel. To finance this expensive hobby we decided to rent our home to other travelers from time to time. Whether it is Asia or next door Europe, we always try to get the local experience : trying local food, meeting new people and wonder about in the small streets away from mass tourism. Besides traveling we are busy with our law school, and fashion management studies. Next to it we have our two lovely cats who make the house the home for us. We try to transfer this homy feeling to all the guest as well. Flexibility, hospitality and service is key. So we would like our guest to know that they can always contact us, for something silly like not be able to find the right washing program, but also when you cant find your way back home. The reason we choose for Airbnb is because we get the change to meet new people all over the world and we think Amsterdam is the most beautiful city in the world, we want to make your stay a memorable one.
