The Space

My appartement is a lovely quiet place on the edge of the Amsterdam city centre, right around the corner of all the hustle and bustle and yet peaceful and quiet. It'(email hidden) to explore Amsterdam from and come home to for some relaxation!

The appartment is on the ground floor. It was built in the 1930's and still features some of the orginal elements. It sports high ceilings, which gives it a very spacious feel and it was completey renovated recently. It has a beautiful garden in the back which is ideal for outdoor dinners and morning breakfasts in the sun. Read a book in one of the comfy chairs or just watch the neighbourhood cats come by and say hi!

The kitchen is fitted with all modern amenities (I love cooking so it's well stocked!), the bedroom features a super-comfy Auping bed and is the best place to wake up in, right next to the garden with the birds singing. The living room has a comfy couch to snuggle up on. I love vintage things and blending styles.

There's wifi in the whole house, and you can stream music to my stereo from your iphone.

The city centre is a 5 minute walk, the Westerpark (a great hot spot all year round) is 10 minutes away and there's shops and some lovely restaurants right around the corner.

I'd be happy to give you some tips for great food and places to visit.

Looking forward to meeting you!

Guest Access

As guests you have access to the whole house and garden.

The Neighborhood

I love my neighbourhood, it's very central and very local at the same time. New shops and restaurants / coffee places pop up all the time, there is a lot of movement in combination with traditional shops that have been around for ages. I love the combination of it all.

Getting around

There are 2 bus lines right around the corner going to and from Central Station (10 mins). I advise renting bikes to explore the city, I can recommend a place close by. The Jordaan is at walking distance, as well as Anne Frank house etc.

Other Things to Note

The house is ideal for a couple (with a kid), but exceptions can be made to facilitate up to 4 people, by one person sleeping on the (very comfortable) couch and another on a blow-up matrass.

  • We spent a week at Anke's place during christmas, and it was the perfect Amsterdam getaway.

    The location is quiet but close to the supermarket, shops and cafes, just a short walk away from the center of Jordaan and well connected to public transportation. The house is warm and welcoming (and clean!) with everything you need for your stay, and the garden is beautiful even in winter time.

    Anke was very kind with explanations and recommendations, and always available for questions (even on christmas eve!).

    We had a wonderful time, it really felt like our home in Amsterdam. We would definitely go back next time!

  • Anke's apartment is completely cozy and wonderful! My boyfriend and I stayed for a weekend and felt right at home. We loved listening to Anke's CD collection and hanging out in her beautiful garden. Anke was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed her local Pizza recommendation!! We had a great time, thank you Anke!

  • Anke place is really lovely.
    And she was attentive and nice.
    it was 3 of us sharing the place, which was fine because we are all friends but not much privace, except for the person that actually slept in the camera (it has to do with the house layout).

    But perfect for a couple of a family with kids.

  • Anke was absolutely charming! Could not have asked for a better experience (email hidden)e was extremely helpful about what to check out around the area, and provided a little map to help us out along our way.

    The flat itself was WONDERFUL. Ground unit with a little garden out back. Unfortunately for us, it was raining the whole time we were there, so we didn't get to enjoy it much, but during breaks in the rain showers, we managed to spend a bit of time outside.

    Great location, excellent host. Again, cannot say enough good things about staying here.

  • I've been in Anke's apartment for one week with my family and we have been extremely satisfied! Ankle (email hidden), friendly, with clear written instructions about the house and around. The apartment is extremely quiet, full of light, the garden is very nice and perfect to have breakfast in the morning before to go or relax at the sunshine at lunchtime. Also neighbors are quiet and friendly. I and my wife slept in Anke bedroom and our 2 chilldren (4 and 6 years) slept on a sofa in the studio. Both rooms and the kitchen have windows looking to the garden and this makes the apartment very pleasant to stay. The apartment is located in a very quiet street, supermarket and bars are very close. Jordan is really close as well the most interesting part of Amsterdam like museum area, vondel park and west park. We really suggest this solution to those who want enjoin Amsterdam attractions combined with a relaxing location where to stay when you want to rest. Than you Anke.

  • Perfect from start to finish. Anke's place was amazing. Super cute appartment with a garden and lovely visitors (kitties!). You feel right at home a little piece of heaven! Anke responded to our request with very short notice, it was a miracle! She even left lots of tips to go around and favourite local places to visit.

    We loved our stay, super easy to find, 10 min by bus from Amsterdam Ceentral, very close to Anne Frank's house and downtown area, trust me its a lovely walk wherever you go around here. Everything is so close. When you are ready for some peace and quiet, you go back to Anke's and relax. Watch some TV, sit by the garden and pet the lovely cats, have some tea and chill.

    We hope to come back again! Absolutely wonderful and kind host. Thank you again for everything Anke!
