Amsterdam is all about location and here you find yourself in the heart of historical district De Pijp in my lovely, light and fully equipped apartment. Walk or bike everywhere exciting on your free bikes and enjoy Amsterdam like a true local.
Amsterdam is all about location and here you find yourself in the heart of historical district De Pijp and yet you stay in a 50m2 lovely, light, fully equipped and quiet apartment.
Just around the corner are the famous and daily Albert Cuijpmarkt, the unique shops, restaurants, coffee corners, bars, clubs, the beautiful Sarphatipark and the river Amstel for the best sunny stroll in Amsterdam.
The sunny apartment is on the second floor (stairs) in a typical Amsterdam house. It's perfect for singles or couples. You will find everything to your convenience: a soft double bed, a large table, wifi, cable tv, a rainshower, a fully equipped kitchen and a sunny balcony from 8 am till 3 pm.
You can use my 2 typical Amsterdam bikes to explore Amsterdam the best way. A great part of central Amsterdam is around the corner and at walking distance, and a lot of trams stop just beside the apartment, which will bring you everywhere. Trainstation Amsterdam Amstel is very nearby.
If you stay here you will be in the middle of all good and exciting Amsterdam has to offer and stay in a quiet and cozy place.
Treat my home and neighbors like your own, respect my personal belongings and have a little chat with Mr. Cactus.
It's my home, which means I really live there :)
- Absolutely no smoking in the house and hallways. The balcony is a perfect smoking spot with a smoking view and a pink smoking ashtray.
- Leave my personal belongings and stuff to me, there's already a lot of things for you to use and play with.
- I am very much in love with my cactus. Please do not water it or move it. He likes a nice daily chat though.
My apartment is on the second floor of a typical Amsterdam house and me and my neighbors made friendly agreements on a few things which I expect my guests to follow:
- No loud music. Use you headphone and there's plenty of bars and clubs in the neighborhood to rock and dance away.
- Keep the hallway free of stuff and clean.
- Lock the front door.
- Speak easy on the stairs and on the balcony after midnight.
My neighbors are the best in the world, so be nice to hem if you meet them. Hugs are welcome but not necessary.
Thank you so much for living in my place like a local and comply to the few houserulez.
We just returned from a 5 night stay in Kim's lovely apartment. We were already very familiar with the neighbourhood having stayed 1 street away on numerous occasions so were very keen to stay in the area as it has great transport links, bars and shops without being too touristy. As many others have mentioned we didn't actually get to meet Kim but her neighbour Fransje welcomed us and let us into the apartment early (which was great for us) and showed us how things worked.
The apartment was clean and had good facilities although it took a little bit of getting used to having no sink in the bathroom. The stairs are typically steep Amsterdam which is fine for us but worth noting for anyone with limited mobility. It looks exactly the same as the pictures so you won't be disappointed and was a lovely place to come back to of an evening. The welcoming bottle of wine was a lovely touch too and helped start our new year off with a bang.
We are the type of AirBnB'ers who like to look after ourselves and be left alone to enjoy the apartment so this was fantastic for us, although Fransje made it very clear she was only a few doors away and we could call her at any time. To us this is the perfect host.
All in all a fantastic experience, lovely apartment, great hosts in our favourite part of our favourite city. Will definitely be in touch on our return.
Nous avons passé 4 nuits dans l'appartement de Kim fin décembre. Son amie Fransje nous a accueilli, présenté l'appartement et les principales activités à faire à Amsterdam. Nous avons utilisé les deux vélos et faire du vélo à Amsterdam, c'est une expérience unique ! En bref, l'appartement est très bien placé, bien équipé et très agréable. Nous ne regrettons aucunement notre choix !
We had a really good time in Amsterdam thanks to Kim's nice place ! Great location. Easy to jump on line 4 and close to everything. Awesome places for breakfast, lunch and brunch ! perfect spot ! We didn't had the chance to met Kim in person but thanks a lot for all the messages and welcoming arrangements ! Hope you'll book it for your next trip to Amsterdam !
We (two of us) stayed at Kim's place for six nights and loved it. It is cozy, clean, exactly as pictured, right on two tram lines, in a great neighborhood with a lot of energy, young people, cool shops, and cultural diversity. It's an easy ride from Kim's place on the 3 tram to the museum quarter and a quick ride on the 4 tram to both the RAI and Centraal stations. Grocery stores, drug store, food shops, restaurants all in easy walking distance and out of Tourist Central. Kim was easy to be in touch with, and her neighbor Fransje was -- as per previous reviews -- friendly and helpful when we checked in and out. We arrived in Amsterdam earlier than stated check-in time, but Kim and Fransje accommodated us and allowed us to check in early, for which we are grateful. Our only very minor complaint was that the shower water didn't get warm enough for our taste, but we are willing to admit that that may be as much a function of our delicate constitutions as much as anything else. Overall, we'd highly recommend staying here! Thanks Kim & Fransje!
L'accoglienza della nostra ospite è stata molto calorosa. Per la verità Kim non era lì ma sapevamo di non trovarla perchè ce l'aveva comunicato in occasione delle mail che ci eravamo scambiati prima della nostra partenza. Una sua amica ci ha accolto con molta affabilità e ci ha descritto in dettaglio tutto quanto era necessario per fruire al meglio del nostro soggiorno. Non siamo stati molto in casa perchè abbiamo approfittato di tutto il tempo possibile per visitare Amsterdam. Ma quando dopo una giornata di cammino si arriva alla sera è importante ritrovarsi in un ambiente accogliente e familiare. E' quello che abbiamo appunto trovato nell'alloggio di Kim perfettamente descritto sul sito web che avevamo consultato prima di effettuare la nostra scelta. Eravamo già stati ad Amsterdam ospiti di B&B ma vivere anche pochi giorni in un appartamento è tutt'altra cosa. L'appartamento è sito abbastanza vicino al centro da cui è molto facilmente raggiungibile (le indicazioni forniteci da Kim per arrivarci sono state estremamente precise) e con cui è molto ben collegato. Il quartiere è molto tranquillo pur essenso sede di numerosi esercizi commerciali che ci hanno permesso gli acquisti di cui avevamo necessità con estrema facilità. In definitiva abbiamo trascorso belle giornate e siamo soddisfatti della scelta fatta.
Nous avons passe 2 nuits chez Kim. Son appartement est très bien placé et très cosy. Tout y est pour se sentir bienvenue. Il y a une jolie décoration et tout ce qu'il faut pour se sentir chez soi. Kim a été flexible avec nous car notre avion arrivait tres tôt le matin dans Amsterdam et nous avons pu deposer notre valise chez elle avant l'heure prévue et a ete arrangeante lors de notre depart aussi. Lorsque nous lui avons demandé des renseignements sur les endroits pour sortir le soir, elle nius a envoye un mail quelques heures après avec les informations. Si nous devions revenir, nous irions chez Kim sans hésiter!
Lovely apartment, great location and a very friendly welcome. The perfect place to stay for a city break.

I live in Amsterdam and work as a freelancer in online marketing strategy for companies around the world. I love to travel, discover new places and meet new people. I did a lot of home exchanges in the past years and am getting slightly hooked on AirBnB now. It's a great compliment when people feel at home and have a great time in my own home.
I'll always take care of your place like it's my own.
