Our neighborhood 'De Pijp' one of the most popular in Amsterdam for its central location, the Albert Cuyp street market, plenty of restaurants and bars and little shops.
Start your day early at the corner coffee bar and see the street filling with people and bikes while you enjoy your coffee with a nice muffin or - a personal favourite - the millionaire's shortbread.
Get some groceries at the supermarket around the corner or even better at the famous Albert Cuyp streetmarket with every day fresh fish, vegetables and flowers. Stroll the market for some clothing or souvenirs and get some typical 'Dutch' street food such as poffertjes, stroopwafels, fries (patat) with mayonnaise (or get a 'patatje oorlog met uitjes' if you really want to go local). If you'd like to do some more luxury shopping then just walk 10 mins to the P.C. Hooftstraat (Chanel, Hermes, etc) or the somewhat more affordable Utrechtsestraat. Art and antiques lovers will also enjoy the adjacent neighborhood the Spiegelkwartier with over 70 specialized galleries and dealers.
If you are ready for some more culture and art it is just a 5 minute walk to the Museum Plein (museum square) with the Rijksmuseum (Dutch masters Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals), the Van Gogh museum and the (modern) Stedelijk museum as well as the Royal Concerthall.
After sniffing some culture it is time to get some fresh air lying on the Museum square grass or strolling the Vondelpark where you will see the full diversity of Amsterdam city life.
Head back to your temporary home away from home and take a nap or just a quick shower before hitting some of the many bars and restaurants all at walking distance.
Tip! Checkout our Guidebook in the Maps section where we have added these and plenty of other places to visit that we think are worth wile.
Really Amsterdam is best done on foot or by bike. There is a Halfords store with bike rental just 2 blocks away.
Public transport is also around the corner with several tram lines closeby connecting to Central Station (12min), Dam square (10min), Leidseplein (5 min), Rembrandt plein (5 min), Jordaan (15min) and Red light district (10 min).
Parking is expensive in Amsterdam and your car is of little use in the inner city. There is relatively cheap indoor municipal parking (approx 8 EUR per 24 hours, max 96 hours) with camera surveillance at several locations in the outskirts of Amsterdam. Search "Park and Ride Amsterdam" on the internet for more information.
Please note that the verified pictures made by AirBnB (we love them, thank you AirBnB!!) are made with a wide-angle camera which makes the place seem just a little bit bigger than it is.
The access door at street level is shared with two neighbors after a steep staircase (typical Amsterdam style) takes you to the second floor with private entrance of the apartment. You will have full and exclusive access to the entire apartment

Nous venons de rentrer de notre séjour à Amsterdam et nous avons adorer! Veronica est très sympatique et surtout très souriante!!! Elle nous mets très rapidement à l'aise et son appartement est top! Il est bien placé (quartier des musées et à 30min à pied du centre), et conforme aux photos du site.
Nous recommanderons avec plaisir ce logement à nos amis et entourage!
Excellent location, lovely hostess and simple, functional, clean home. I slept very well here and had everything that I needed.
Los dueños encantadores, el apartamento limpio y ordenado y el barrio genial, muy cerca del centro pero con vida de barrio y no de guiris. Cafes y restaurantes muy chulos por la zona. Recomendable sin ninguna duda.
The apartment is in a fantastic location - lots of nice bars and restaurants right near by. Museums and sights are within walking distance. Apartment was really clean and had everything we needed. Veronica showed us in and check in and out was super easy. Sofa bed was comfortable.
L'appartement est idéalement situé, dans un quartier animé où l'on trouve des restaurants et bars très sympa. Il est tres fonctionnel et fidele aux photos. Malheureusement, nous n'avons pas pu faire connaissance avec Veronica, mais son amie Leticia nous a tres bien acceuilli. Veronica est disponible et tres réactive par mail. Je recommande ce logement.
Great host and great place. Veronica gave us a bunch of information and tips about the place. The apartment is just a walk away from the museums, and right there in the Pjip. Not only that but it's two blocks away from the tram, so you can easily get there. We really appreciate Veronica's help and it's a place we really recommend. If anything, the steps to the second floor are steep, but that's the way it is in all Amsterdam, so for us it wasn't a problem.

We are a Argentinean / Dutch couple who love travel, nice food and beautiful nature.
We aim to enjoy life with respect for the world and other beings living in it. Don't treat people in a way that you wouldn't want them to treat you.
