  • Rita was an amazingly generous and kind host. For example, she provided an ample amount of food -- two bottles of wine, beer, coffee, water, oranges, bread, butter, cheese, snacks, chocolate, etc. Basically we had a fully stocked kitchen. Plus, Rita bought us flowers. She was very pleasant to talk to and very informative about the area. The apartment has many useful books about Amsterdam and Netherlands. The apartment is spacious, clean, bright with high ceilings and tall windows, and has a wonderful view of the canal. It's located in a dynamic area with plenty of restaurants, cafes and supermarkets. It's an easy walk to the museum area, vondel park and to the heart of the city. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is strong. Overall we had a wonderful time and highly recommend Rita as a host.

  • Rita was an excellent host. She provided info for almost everything one could imagine: bars, restaurants, museums, ... It was a very nice surprise to find a fridge full of food provided for free. The apartment was very clean and in a good location. Rita will do everything to help, she was an excellent host.

  • My wife and I are just back from three nights at Rita's apartment in De Pijp. The apartment was perfect for us. it's location was ideal for accessing the museums we wanted to see and was close to the trams that took us everywhere else. The neighbourhood was interesting and fun to walk in while choosing from the many great local restaurants on and just off the main street. Rita herself is a pleasure to meet, most helpful and she maintains a clean, fresh apartment that was stocked with snacks, drinks and all we needed for breakfast(s) inc. fresh coffee! We felt most pampered and fortunate. Her own description of the apartment and all the nice things others have written in their reviews are bang on.

  • Rita is an extremely warm person who is a very helpful and welcoming host.
    Her apartment was perfect for our requirements, spacious and very clean as well as being in a great location with great transport links (incl, nearby the bus to the airport).
    We thoroughly enjoyed her (unexpected) welcome pack, which included a fridge stocked with food, beer & wine - thank you Rita !!

    We would highly recommend Rita as a host and her apartment for your next visit to Amsterdam. Peter & Loretto

  • Rita est une hôte vraiment adorable, aux petits soins pour ses pensionnaires (merci encore pour les parapluies!) L'appartement est charmant, et situé dans un quartier très agréable d'Amsterdam (quartier des musées), avec un arrêt de tram juste au pied de l'appartement et pas mal de bons restos et cafés dans le quartier.

  • What a wonderful experience we had at Rita's apartment in Amsterdam! Everything from the first contact to our departure went so smoothly and pleasantly. We were greeted warmly and given all kind of useful info on the apartment and the city. Rita is a wonderful and very warm host. The apartment is extremely well situated, well appointed, spacious and from the living room you can enjoyed your coffee while looking at the canal and the ongoing activities. We were greeted with a fridge full of good food and a beautiful bouquet of roses. The bed is very comfortable as is the rest of the apartment. Very highly recommended .

  • As someone else already said in a review of Rita, there are hosts and then there is Rita! She is an absolutely delightful person and extremely generous. There is almost no limit to what she will do to make her guests comfortable. She has a great apartment in a wonderful area. I am very grateful to Rita for making our stay so nice.

  • Rita is really a full attention hostess, playful, and speaks French very well (and others languages!). The appartement is very bright, very clean, well decorated (fresh flowers and DVD!). We felt as we are at home, in a small nest (the bed is large and very comfortable!). The market is not far away, and many restaurants and bars, the quartier is well located for museums and downtown, with nice view of the canal, and quiet at night. We appreciated oranges, fresh bread and marmelade for breakfast at home ! A very good adress to enjoy a trip in Amsterdam !

  • There are generous hosts and there are super generous hosts. Rita is definitely in the latter category! Fridge and cupboard full of food and plenty of great recommendations to enjoy Amsterdam. Flat is perfectly located by the museums area and it's nice and light. Thank you Rita!

I've been working as a librarian at the Public Library in Amsterdam before I got my pension. My daughter, my son and my two grandchildren (12 and 9 years old) keep me sharp! I have both French and Spanish conversation classes and I am quite active at the gym. I have a close group of friends; we meet every week since years. I enjoy going to the cinema and museums of contemporary art. I do almost everything by bike: the best and easiest way to move around in Amsterdam. I would be happy to welcome you!
