The space

I'd like to welcome you to my wonderful top floor appartment in the upcoming neighborhood Old-West, just a few blocks from the beautiful Vondelpark.

The 60 m2 apartment is on the fourth floor. It has a spacious living room with lots of daylight. A third person could sleep on the couch, which is actually quite comfortable. The bathroom has a rainshower and a nice bath for relaxing.
The cozy bedroom has a double bed, and a small roof terrace of 10 m2. Small with respect to the roof terrace on the fifth floor. This roof terrace has sun from sunrise to sunset, is about 25 m2, where you can have a barbeque, and lounge on the big benches I made, while you can enjoy some good sounds from the outside soundsystem. In the middle of it is a small top room for doing laundry and an extra fridge.

Furthermore you can make use of other standard facilities, like Wi-Fi, cable TV, a well supplied kitchen with dishwasher, and a washing machine.

Of course you don't go to Amsterdam for just staying in my house. My house is very close to the city center. It's about a 2-minute walk to the Vondelpark. In the blocks around the corner there are lots of local bars and good restaurants, but also an alternative club OT301 with DJ's and bands every week. If you're looking for busier night life, the closest you get is the Leidsesquare, about 5 minutes by tram. The nice untouristy 'Ten Kate' market is at 10 minutes walking distance. Here you can buy lots of fresh food and fabrics for almost nothing. Airport Schiphol can be reached by public transport within 20 minutes.

Upon arrival you will find more practical information about the Amsterdam, like a map and information about tram, metro, taxi, bike rental, highlights, supermarkets, the different neighborhoods do's and don'ts, and some of my favorite spots.

Although once in a while I do make exceptions, I prefer requests from people with a (clear) profile photo, and offline ID verification. Just a short message "is this available?" will be declined.

Other things to note

For single night reservations I will ask EUR. 30 on top of the regular fee. Single night reservations are only for 1 person or a couple sleeping in the double bed.

Besides a slight misunderstanding at the beginning of our trip, we had an excellent time. The location for beautiful and perfect for what we were looking for. We were in a nice neighborhood near a canal and Vondelpark. It was quite, but close to coffee shops, restaurants and some shopping. Everywhere we wanted to go to was within biking distance (or walking if you like to walk). We rented bikes, which is probably the best option. The biking in Amsterdam is unlike anywhere else. It can be stressful, but also incredibly fun and convenient. As for Dirk's apartment, it was well kept, modern but comfortable, and got lots of sunlight during the day. The rooftop and balcony were nice additions and I had not experienced an apartment like this before. Dirk was gone for the weekend, but very attentive about staying in contact with us, this was very appreciated. All in all, we had a beautiful visit thanks to Dirk, the apartment, and lovely Amsterdam itself.

Dirk's apartment was perfect for our short stay in Amsterdam - walking distance from the city center, and right next to the beautiful Vondelpark. The flat itself is cozy but not cramped; it comfortably accommodated three people, and the rooftop deck was a huge plus (good views, cool place to just hang out). Dirk went above and beyond with the accommodations, as he provided a fairly comprehensive map of things to check out in Amsterdam (great to get a local's perspective) and even had a bottle of wine for us. Would highly recommend.

Dirk was a great host. To top it off, his apartment was better than he described! Spacious, homely and had a great view from the roof terrace! This apartment served as home for three nights and it felt that way. A great holiday starts with where you stay. Dirk gave great guidance to finding the apartment from the airport using public transport, as well as the key spots to visit in Amsterdam. Very close to Vondelpark, a 10 min tram ride to Dam Square - perfectly located near public transport. Supermarket, pubs / bars and restaurants of all cuisines available at the end of the road.

Thanks Connor! You're very welcome next time you visit Amsterdam. And sorry for the broken coffee machine. Next time there's a proper Italian espresso machine waiting for you :)

Dirk's house is lovely. It's central but on a quiet street. Close to the tram so easy access to go anywhere. Great bath and comfortable bed. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to live like an Amsterdammer for a couple of days.

Hi, I'm a born Amsterdammer, raised in Haarlem, and moved back to this wonderful city about 15 years ago. I'm working here as a software engineer. In my spare time I like to hang out in Amsterdam, travel the world, and enjoy life.
I'd like to give you a pleasant stay and give you any information about Amsterdam you like.
