  • Myself and 2 friends had a fantasic long weekend in Marcella's apartment. It is in a fantastic location with everything required on the doorstep. Highly Recommended.

  • Marcella is really nice! We sincerely enjoyed our stay there. The location is quite good, just few minutes from the central station. The apartment itself is also beautiful and chic.

  • We really enjoyed this flat. It was clean, comfortable, and in a great location. Close to the train station, and an enjoyable walk to all the museums in the city. There were great resturaunts around it. The italian restaurant at the end of the street was authentic, and very good. Yvonne was a great host. She was flexible with the check in and check out, which was very much appreciated. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for an enjoyable stay in Amsterdam. There's a good free walking tour that meets at 11 in the square behind the old church. Thank you Yvonne!

  • Marcella was a very nice, warm and welcoming host to two of our dancers! They really enjoyed their stay in the apartment! Thank you! The first days there were some construction works in the neighbourhood which luckily stopped after 2 days. Marcella was really helpful and asked the constructionworkers when they would be done. Definitely recommend the apartment!

  • Stayed here with my wife and a close friend of ours. Location was perfect. Close to great shops and restaurants. We were able to find grocery stores within a few blocks of the house as well. We loved the house. It had unique dutch character, narrow steep stairs and historic charm. The second bedroom is within the first bedroom but our friend decided to sleep in the living room on the comfortable couch.
    House had all amenities we needed, even a second toilet! Highly recommended.

    March 2014
  • My friends and myself stayed at the apartment and it was really nice. We would stay again. It was a really good location because everything was in walking distance.

    February 2014
  • The flat is wonderful and has a great charme. Situated in the heart of amsterdam, you need online 10 minutes to walk to the central station. We felt very comfortable there. Marcella and Yvonne are also very kind. They answered us quickly and welcomed us with a smile, when we arrived. The describtion of them say all what you need to know.

  • Me and my friends had a wonderfull time at the appartement.
    The Apartment was very clean and comfortable, especially the 2 Person Hammock, we really loved it.

    Marcella, our host, was very kind and gave us alot of hints, what location she prefers to visit.
    Sadly we only had 3 nights at the Apartement.

    We really enjoyed our stay, even though we were "Lost in Amsterdam". :-)

    A really nice location, even for further Trips

    February 2014
  • I had the best experience staying at this apartment. Marcella was a lovely host, and left me feeling like I was staying in my own home. The location was perfect (only about a 5 min walk from Centraal Station), but yet off on a little side street to avoid the crowds. The apartment itself is described accurately, we comfortably fit 3 adults for 7 days.

    The space is not only well kept, but is well suited for a stay in Amsterdam. My only regret is that the weather wasn't warm and dry enough for us to properly use the terrace.

    I would not hesitate to stay at this apartment again on a future trip to Amsterdam!

    February 2014
  • We could not have made a better choice then this house for our 3 days stay in Amsterdam. Location is great, very central yet quiet. Lovely street with nice shops and restaurants just around the corner, very close to Central Station with trains, trams, boats to go anywhere you want.
    the house itself was cosy and all we needed. there is some stair climbing to do and the second bedroom is "inside" of the first bedroom which means not so much privacy but the sleeping couch on in the living room is very comfy too. Marcella made us feel very welcome. We will go back for sure!

About
Our family works in the Restaurant & Hospitality industry and my son has his own cafe in Amsterdam. I live in Amsterdam for a long time and love to travel. This apartment used to be a family house, so they had a place to sleep. But now they grow up and have their own life. So i live there and run a bed & breakfast with my niece. The work with Airbnb i like the most, to meet other people and make sure they have a great vacation. When i am busy my niece of 23 years old would take care of the guest. She always worked as a manager in the hospitality industry and really love to take care of the tourist. I am sure people would love to stay in my apartment. It's in the middle of the city and light and sun around. Be Welkom!
