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.
Everythings were perfect! Easy to find it and near to central places. We enjoyed Rotterdam.
Wij zijn een weekend in het appartement geweest. Erg prettig verblijf. Het appartement was schoon, overdracht sleutel etc ging soepel, leuke locatie in Rotterdam met winkels en metrohalte om de hoek. Oftewel, een aanrader!
Bart's appartement was exact als op de foto. Erg stijlvol en ruim. En ook lekker schoon. Heb ook genoten van de kunst en mooie spullen. Fijn om naar te kijken.
Verder werkte alles naar behoren. Was het balkon heerlijk in de zon met uitzicht op water en groen. Een fijne buurt van waaruit je prima overal terecht kunt en komt.
We hebben er met 4 geslapen wat zelfs goed te doen was.
Ook de afspraken met Bart, van te voren en tzt gingen snel en soepel. Hij is flexibel en denkt mee. Dank Bart voor het boekje met handige tips. Ik vond dit echt een perfect appartement waardoor we én rust hadden én genoten hebben van een fantastisch stad.
Bart was very accommodating with regard to handing key over. The apartment was lovely and light and with a very useful handbook about the flat and city.
We had a lovely stay there and would definitely recommend to anyone. It is in a pleasant location in easy reach of the city.
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.
About the Host, Bart
