About This Listing
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.
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.
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.
A supermarket is just around the corner, just as lot of other shops and a square where you can sometimes find markets and other activities.
The city center and the museum area are a ten minutes walk, a big parc and the Euromast are seven minutes of walking.
You can park your car on the street. Normally it's paid parking, but you can register as a visitor – it'll cost only about € 5,- per day. I need your license plate to make a reservation.
Tram, subway and busstops are very near.
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.
I ask you not to smoke in the house (you can smoke on the balcony) and not to bring pets.
Feel free to use the music installation, but please leave the turntable untouched and of course: mind the neighbors.
For the rest I invite you to feel at home and be as careful with my place as you would be with your own.
Bart has a very nice place that looks very much like it does in the pictures. We had no trouble getting comfortable. The kitchen had everything needed for our family of 3 to have home cooked meals. The place is very clean!
The supermarket is just around the corner (the PIN credit card doesn't work though at this location), and the neighborhood is very quiet. It was a perfect way to get a feel of Rotterdam. Access to tram and metro very close by meant that getting around was a breeze.
Overall, we enjoyed our trip, and will recommend Bart's place to friends and family.
Barts Wohnung entsprach der Beschreibung und unseren Erwartungen. Sie war sauber und gut eingerichtet. Die ÖVs waren um die Ecke, das Stadtzentrum erreicht man zu Fuss in ca. 20 Minuten. Das Quartier ist ruhig und liegt bei einem Park mit Spielplatz.
Bart war stets erreichbar.
Mooi, schoon en fijn appartement in een gezellige en fraaie buurt.
Sehr freundlich, flexibel und sorgfältig unser Gastgeber, ganz toll auch wie Bart uns persönlich passende touristische Tips gab, man fühlte sich sehr willkommen in einer sehr persönlichen Atmosphäre mit gleichzeitig viel Raum für die Gäste.
We spent the new year in Rotterdam in Bart's apartment. Bart was a really nice host, easy to communicate, and helped us to park our car (really easy just in the street).
The apartment was big enough for 5 people with a lovely river just in front of, and near the town center. We spent three great days in Rotterdam and Bart's apartment.
Thanks a lot!
Het was een heerlijk appartement. En we hebben goed geslapen,voor dekinderenwas er een opblies areobed. Prima allemaal. We misten alleen een kop koffie in de ochtend. De koffiemachine zag er te ingewikkeld uit. Zeker tot een volgende keer
Het appartement van Bart is een fijne plek om Rotterdam te ontdekken. Prima locatie; fijne plek om tot rust te komen. Bart communiceert duidelijk en snel dus het inchecken en uitchecken ging zonder problemen.
About the Host, Bart
I love cities. Not the tourist version, but the daily life: meeting people, eating, drinking, visiting museums, concerts and theatre. I am a partner in a graphic design and communications agency. I like cooking.
Very good bread, a wide selection of Dutch, French, Spanish and other cheeses and charcuterie. A good place to buy your breakfast or lunch.Nieuwe Binnenweg Rotterdam 3021 GJ
