Inviting, restful dble bedroom with large private bathroom overlooking lush green garden Designer apartment with marble kitchen, lovely living room wooden floors throughout. A stone's throw from Amsterdam's stunning canals, 5 mins to Anne Frank House
An oasis in the heart of Amsterdam. In a city where you normally have to contend with carrying your bags up the teeniest, steepest flights of stairs, this flat is a light and airy haven located on the ground floor. Everything is very neutral and light but equally it is super cosy when it is colder out. However, if the weather is good there is also a lovely private garden at the back - a rarity in Amsterdam. Please note that while you will have your own bathroom there is a shared toilet.
Mi casa es tu casa! I want you to feel at home in my home. The Kitchen and Living Area are there if you need them and Garden at back is perfect when the weather is fine. There is Wifi and If required I can provide breakfast and you will always have use of kitchen including coffee machine/kettle/toaster as well as all the basics.
I'll be in and about and am very happy to give you as much or as little information about the city as your need.
The street is in Oud-West district of the city, just 2 streets outside Amsterdam centre. There are supermarkets/restaurants/bars at each end of the street but if you're looking for a coffee shop - there's one just a few doors along! This is a friendly neighbourhood full of all ages. A really great place to live. We can give more information about places to shop and eat on request.
Getting from the airport is easy - trains run every 15mins to Amsterdam centraal (journey time: 15mins). At the train station there are taxis or trams. Take tram 13 or 17 for 4 stops. (if you miss the stop - no worries - you just get off at the next one which is equally close!) It will take you 11mins and then the flat is a short 5min walk. We are 10 mins walk from the Westerkerk and the Anne Frank house. Amsterdam is a very easy city to navigate and walking places never takes very long but If you want a really convenient way to travel around Amsterdam - it's on bike. There are bike rental shops at each end of the street. We can give more details about travel and bikes etc on request. Whether by foot/tram or bike it's easy to get to the Museumkwartier, with the amazing Van Gogh museum and the newly refurbished Rijksmuseum. For shopping there are lots of local markets and the lovely 9 streets shopping area that run between main canal belt and have lovely boutique style shops and cafes and restaurants. A journey never really takes more than 20minutes at the most in Amsterdam (especially on bike!) but if you're just looking to walk aimlessly - there are so many beautiful streets and canals to explore.
Please note there is a 2 night minimum over weekends to include a Saturday night. Please Note there is a 4 night booking minimum over New Year and Kings day which must include Friday to Monday. Kings Day falls on Saturday 26th April 2014. There is a 3 night booking minimum for Easter Friday-Easter Monday. Easter falls on the 20th April 2014.
I had a late flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam and made my way to Alice's place on a very cold January evening. I used the airbnb app instructions on my iPhone to locate her address with great ease. Alice greeted me with a big smile and showed me in. It was late but nothing was too much bother and I was shown everything. Nothing and I mean nothing was too much bother (including the loan of a UK plug adaptor which I forgot). This really is a beautiful home away from home and I felt totally relaxed. Great mattress too! Thanks for everything Alice! :)

I stayed at Alices' flat for two nights and it was as advertised. It was huge and very easy to get to from the central station. Alice was very easy going and very helpful on finding the better attractions. If there is any debate about choosing this place and another, Alices' place will not disappoint. If I ever get back to Amsterdam, I will stay here again and hopefully find some better brownies! Thank you very much for everything Alice!! Cheers from Canada.
Alice is a super sweet host and her flat is a very cool modern stay ideally located close to everything in central (old) Amsterdam. Trams are easy to catch for places farther out and Alice gave me a map that made it simple to get around to the various places i needed to go to. I had been travelling for month when i got to Amsterdam so Alice's awesome instructions to get to her place were a welcome relief. I was in town primarily to see the Van Gogh exhibit and Alice helped me out big time on that too!
Alice is a great host with a great apartment. It is just as in the pictures, the bed is comfortable (very important) and the shower is modern. It is actually not that far from the centre and I had no problem walking back and forth despite the cold weather.
I would recommend this apartment to anybody from solo travellers to couples.

This place is simply amazing! Looks exactly like the pictures: huge and comfortable bed, very well decorated and super nice bathtub. Just 4 stations from Amsterdam Centraal, with 2 supermarkets at 3min walking distance.
Alice was a wonderful host: very supportive, she gave us many suggestions of where to go and how to enjoy the most of Amsterdam. I'd love to come back!
Alice is a wonderful and very accommodating host. Her place is one of the best airbnb's I stayed at so far. The large and modern ensuite bathroom with separate shower and bath is the icing on the cake. It's a quiet house in a nice neigbourhood, easy to reach by tram and close to the big museums. I will certainly come back soon!
We had a spledid time in Amsterdam and Alice helped us a great way to find special places to have breakfast and go out. She was very welcoming and easy on handling us. I am greatful she shares her beautiful apartment, where everything is decorated with great taste. The Bathroom was a highlight!
The location is easy to reach from the main station and was a perfect starting point to stroll around Jordaans and the 9 Straatjes.
Thanks Alice for the great stay!
Alice was such a lovely host. She is very welcoming and friendly, easy going and she also gives great advice on where to go and what to see. Her flat is located just off the city centre in a quiet street, public transport, small restaurants and shops are just around the corner. The flat is very spacious and beautifully decorated, exactly the right place to relax after a day of walking around in Amsterdam.
I highly recommend Alice as a host and her beautiful apartment and hope to stay with her on my next trip to Amsterdam.
