The Space


Independent, fully equipped one bedroom apartment in De Baarsjes, the up and coming neighborhood in the western part of town.
This aparment is situated in a quiet resedential street but with everything that makes Amsterdam such a wonderful place within arms reach. Trams to the city centre (approx 10 mins) leave a 2 minute walk from the apartment which is situated on the second floor, so plenty of daylight and a nice view of the street and adjacent square with mini football-pitch.
The apartment itself is basic, but with everything you need. Comfortable double bed, en suite bathroom and seperate toilet. The kitchen comes with a microwave/oven, stove and coffeemachine. No time for cooking? No worries. There are loads of options for good take away food or even better restaurants in walking distance.
The livingroom is equipped with a big table that seats 4 people and a cosy seating area with one couch that can be transformed into a second double bed.
Pieter van der Does is the ideal place for people who are looking for a decent but basic place to stay while they’re in one of the coolest cities on the planet.

NOTE: There are also two bikes available with the house that are free to use.

  • The apartment is spacious and basically equipped with everything you need. There are several tram lines nearby taking you to the city center and also a big supermarket around the corner. Communication with Robert was also great.

  • It took me long to write because I came back to Brazil just one week ago and we are hosting the World Cup, so, life is crazy here!!! Robert-Jan is a great host. His apartment is very big, quiet, clean and confortable. There, you can live as the Dutch people! There is a big and wonderful supermarket just in the corner. The bikes helped a lot to know the better the city. We have already visited Amsterdam for several times, but this one was the first one during "summer" time! We really enjoy it! We will come back and for sure will stay in Jean-Robert´s apartment. I very much recommend his apartment!

  • Place was large in a decent neighbourhood on the outskirts of town. The two free bikes helped a lot for our four day stay- it is about a ten minute bike ride into the center of town. Amsterdam is a small city so the bikes can get you far in a short amount of time. Apartment was basic, but perfect for our needs, and Robert-Jan was a helpful host.

  • Highly recommended!! Robert was the perfect host, picked us up from the airport and helped us with everything we need.
    The House is very cosy, confortable and in a very quiet neighborhood, about 10-15min bike ride from the city center, on a straight line, so it's difficult to get lost.
    Arround the Apartment there is a supermarket and some very nice restaurants, some of which are open 24h. Ideal for the late night snack.

  • The flat is comfortable, perfect for our holiday.
    The flat is close to the center (just 30 minutes to Dam square by walk), it is really close to the most important places and it's easy to reach from the airport.
    The comunication with Robert-Jan was great!

  • Nuestra estancia en este apartamento fue perfecta: el apartamento se encuentra a 10 minutos en bici de todo, cerca hay restaurantes y un gran supermercado, la cama es cómoda, la cocina funcional, se llega con facilidad desde el aeropuerto... muy bien, la verdad.
    Pero lo mejor, sin duda, del apartamento son las 2 bicicletas (una con freno de muñeca ^_^). Con ellas pudimos recorrer la ciudad fácil y rápidamente y descubrir algunos rinconcitos inhóspitos de la ciudad.

  • The apartment was easy to reach from the airport and just perfect for our stay. Robert-Jan explained everything clearly, the whole communication with him went smoothly. The surrounding area was calm and the apartment was equipped with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The bikes were great, we took them everyday. You can do everything by bike from the apartment. Nice city, nice host - we'll be coming back for sure!

Ik ben Robert-Jan. Ik woon al 10 jaar in Amsterdam en word met de dag meer verliefd op deze stad. Ik ga graag op reis of bezoek concerten. Je kan me ook vaak vinden op het terras van cafe Radijs. Een echte aanrader.
