Large and sunny apartment in one of the cities loveliest streets, Great restaurants, bars and shops! 2 balconies to chill on and a huge terrace to enjoy views over the whole city. 1 min. walk to the Vondelpark and a 5 min tram to citycenter. 2 cats
Artist couple rents out their quiet, sunny and spacious apartment in the wonderful Old-West area, on walking distance from the center. It's on the top floor (email hidden)ly street full of nice shops, bars and restaurants, only a stones throw away from the Vondelpark, which is perfect for a stroll or a run. The tram stop is practically in front of the house and the Leidseplein in only three stops away. Our apartment has two nice balconies to relax on in the afternoon sun and a huge rooftop terrace that overlooks the entire city! We have a big flat screen TV with cable. Fast internet with WiFi. There is nice books, a piano and a few guitars (both in tune). The bedroom on the second floor boasts a huge King size bed, the couch sleeps one more and an aerobed is available upon request. Bike/scooter/car rentals around the corner.
Due to the large amount of inquiries about our space, we can not 'hold' the apartement for you until a reservation is made.
Due to an unfortunately bad experience we want to stress that our house is not a youth hostel or party palace. We will accept only reservations by guests with reviews or references, so please make sure you tell us something about you and your travelplans when making an inquiry, thanks!
The whole apartment will be yours, including the rooftop terrace. You will be free to use everything from kitchen utensils to piano and record collection (not too loud after 10pm please)
Interaction with Guests
In our absence, our friend Eva will take care of the check-in and -out. She lives around the corner, is very helpful.and can jump in, in the unlikely event that there is some kind of problem.
The Jan Pieter Heijestraat recently became the pearl of the Oud-West neighborhood. Every day a new coffee bar, restaurant or store opens, offering anything from second hand clothing to fancy design furniture. The park is almost nextdoor and perfect for a morning run or a afternoon stroll. The area is safe, international and getting trendier by the day.
The #1 tram stops almost in front of the apartment. #7 and #17 stop at the end of the street. The 1 will get you into the heart of Amsterdam in less then 5 minutes. Around the corner, you can rent bicycles, scooters and cars.
Other Things to Note
Being a very original Amsterdam house, there is no elevator, but a typical dutch staircase.
We have two cute cats that would love to meet you.
Please feel at home, but treat the house with the same respect as you would treat your own. We don't allow for other people then the renting guests in the house and ask you to keep the noise down after 10pm. Our neighbors are friendly, but will investigate and report excessive noise or weird behavior. Please respect the fact that this is not a party house. If you are looking for one, we kindly ask you to please continue your search elsewhere. Thank you!
Unfortunately, due to a very bad experience, we have to stress this rule again. There will be no parties and no unknown guests in the house and we will - upon complaints from the neighbors - immediately take appropriate action including removal of you and your belongings from the premisses. This is not a youth hostel or party palace.
Dre & Kareltje's apartment was awesome, just like the photos. Everything was in order to make our stay feel like we were home. The area was also great, necessary stuff near by and the location was perfect just a minute away from Vondelpark on foot and a couple of minutes to the center by tram or cycling. We wish we had stayed longer, but will definetly be my first choice in Amsterdam.
I stayed for 2 weeks in one of the coolest apartments I have experienced using airbnb, I like to visit Europe and mostly Amsterdam, the location was perfect next to the vondelpark, we had the best of our vacation, I stayed with my brother for 2 weeks, every small detail in the apartment will amaze you, I liked the records set and the 2 balconies, and I played Nintendo (something I wasn't planning to do in Amsterdam)
I highly recommend it you will enjoy it for sure.
The apartment was terrific! it was *exactly* as advertised. Big comfy bed, cozy couch, and love the long Dutch-style table. Traveling with two kids, we tend to cook a lot. Dre and Kareltje had everything we needed - knives, cookware, spices, etc. They even had coffee and tea for us. We loved the roof deck! Our first night, we got take-out pizza and sat up there to enjoy the weather and the view. The restaurants in the neighborhood are great too! And the apartment is so near to Vondelpark - we went nearly every day. Thanks for a great stay!
We had an amazing time at Dre & Kareltje's apartment! It was definitely as advertised, and the decor was really cool. The artwork in the living area was definitely a source of many speculation and conversation. The area was great, really close to the tram to central Amsterdam and right beside the Vondelpark. Eva meet with me to check me in and was great to deal with. We would highly recommend this place for anytime looking to spend some time in Amsterdam. Can't wait to come back!
The apartment and experience were exactly as we expected. The location was even better than we thought it would be with tons of great restaurants, shops and access to the center available.
The apartment is special and has a lot of personality. Overall, we had a great time there. Rooms are large and sunny. The bathroom is small, but shower is comfortable enough not to cause any problems. Location is very convenient - lots of shops, restaurants, grocery, etc. nearby and quite close to the city center. Eva (our host) was very welcoming. Thanks for having us!
We stayed in this apartment for 4 people for the celebration of the King of the apartment is exactly like the photo. the owners were very kind both before our arrival is making us leave our luggage until our departure that occurred at 20.00.Nell 'apartment has everything you need for cooking and sleeping, the street is full of shops and supermarkets in order to grocery shopping. is located a short walk from Vondelpark and Tram 1 in less than 3 minutes you are at Leidseplein and Dam 10 minutes you get to do There are three flights of stairs very steep as in all the houses in amsterdam but if you do not you have mobility problems at the end is also nice to do a bit of sport. The bathroom as mentioned above is very small but with a large shower, we did not have problems to adapt. both at the time of the ceck-in which the ceck-out were very courteous.
Apartment highly recommended.
We are a young artist couple who very recently had a lovely son. we are stationed in Amsterdam, but work on large community art projects around the world (Rio de Janeiro, Haiti, Mexico), so we often get to travel abroad. When away, we rent out our apartment for short-stay. We hope you enjoy our apartment as much as we do!
