A spacious apartment in one of the most beautiful streets of the city, featuring a canal. Enjoy the peaceful place and find the bustling city center just around the corner, with loads of nice shops, musea, bars and restaurants.
It's my own house, i only rent it out when I am traveling.
Parking on the street is possible, for € 5/day and I've two simple bikes for rent for € 5/day per bike. Read through the details of my ad for more info.

The space

My apartment is at the Heemraadsingel, one of the most beautiful, quiet and wide boulevards of the city.
Just around the corner, the city center begins, offering a wide choice of shops, bars, museums and lots of other things to do.

The apartment has one bedroom with a double bed, a big bathroom with a bath and a shower. The bathroom has a big open connection to the bedroom, so no doors in between. In the living room one person can sleep on the sofa. If necessary two more persons can sleep on the double air bed in the living room. The apartment is on the first floor (stairs, no elevator). You'll find some nice design furniture, by Martin Visser, Arne Jacobsen, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Alvar Aalto (and Ikea).

The gourmet kitchen is in the living room and it features a dish washer, five burner stove and two ovens, nespresso machine and loads of other cooking equipment. A small balcony gives a nice view on the boulevard.

Guest access

You'll have access to the whole house, as i will temporarily leave my house. Only the wardrobe is not accessible for guests.

Interaction with guests

I will not be in the house while you rent it. I'll be happy to give you some advice on the city upon arrival. Living here for about 20 years, i know a lot of the city, it's events, bars, restaurants and history. I participate in Rotterdam Roundabout, an initiative that offers free city tours by volunteers. If I have time, i'd be happy to give a tour.

Other things to note

Ofcourse the house has a fast Wifi internet connection.
Bedlinnen and towels are included.
Depending on availability, you can always ask if its possible to check in early and/or check out later.

Although we didn't get to meet Bart in person, he ensured that arrangements were made for a smooth check in. This apartment is absolutely beautiful and we really enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the evenings, enjoying the view and listening to music through Bart's speakers! Communication with Bart was excellent through out and he responded to any queries immediately. Thank you so much for all your recommendations! The Dominican restaurant around the corner from the apartment was a super hit with us all as was the Surinamese brootje! Enjoyed staying in Bart's beautiful home while exploring Rotterdam and would recommend to anyone who appreciates good taste! Lisa & Ross

Bart's apartment was so lovely. Though we did not get the chance to meet him, check in was a breeze. We love how close he was to everything and his amazing kitchen. My boyfriend and I had a blast cooking in his kitchen. We will definitely stay here when we come back!

First of all, Bart is very responsive so communication has been always easy. Very friendly and accommodating host. The apartment is clean, stylish and spacious. It is located by a canal and has a wonderful view. Simply it is a beautiful street. The neighbourhood is quiet residential. Lots of families and couples, I guess. To move around the city, the apartment is close to a train station which takes you to the city centre in 10 mins and it is about the same with a taxi. Walking to the centre from the flat is just 30 mins and you will be walking probably the coolest streets in the city.

It’s the second time I come in Bart’s apartment and it’s always amazing! It was perfect in terms of facilities (he left a guide book with all house’s rules and advises), locations (very close to the city center, lots of restaurants and supermarkets nearby) and views (very large window with view over the canal and park ). His apartment is stunningly decorated! His audio / cooking equipment are impressive and make us feel like home directly. He was quick with communication, and provided very helpful information. We’ll surely come back again and recommend his apartment 100%.

I love cities. Not the tourist version, but the daily life: meeting people, eating, drinking, visiting museums, concerts and theatre. I am a consultant specialized in design thinking and a graphic designer.
