AND THE WHOLE STORY...
A beautiful, newly renovated top floor canal house apartment in the centre of Amsterdam, including roof terrace with views over the entire city. The second room is available, sharing the apartment with your host.
The apartment is a short walk (or bike ride) from all of the main parts of the centre (The infamous canal belt, East, Zoo area, Waterlooplein, Nieuwmarkt, Utrechtsestraat, the Amstel River, Dam, Leidseplein).
It's absolutely flooded with light and there's a HUGE ROOF TERRACE with a great view over the entire city skyline, BBQ facilities and seating/ tables for plenty of people. There is a comfortable living area which you are welcome to hang out in, large dining table, fully equipped kitchen and a shared bathroom. There is also laundry equipment available.
You get a cosy double room with bed, side table and all towels/ bedding supplied.
There is 1 private room available and so enough room for 2 people.
Due to work commitments, a check-in time of 6pm or later during the week is preferable. I can try and be flexible with this as much as possible. If you arrive earlier then there are options for luggage storage at Central Train Station.
Weekend check-ins, I can generally be flexible with the time.
The apartment is on the 4th floor (up the traditional canal house stairs).
**BE AWARE there is no elevator and this is a traditional Dutch canal house so stairs are up to 4th floor and moderately steep. If you have a lot of heavy luggage or have problems using stairs then it may not be ideal for you**
Interaction with Guests
ABOUT ME: I am sociable and open minded. I love to travel as well as explore Amsterdam and its constantly evolving character. I work hard as a Program Manager for a medical company and so in my spare time enjoy a mixture of relaxing activities and going to parties with my friends. I am more than happy to share my tips for the city with you, and from time to time there may be a dinner, party or activity you want join in. Note: due to my work schedule I may not always be able to join in activities or will be away for much of the day.
Whatever your age and whether you want to go sightseeing, eating, to bars, dancing, wandering or simply hang out in cool cafes and markets, the best of the capital is all around. And for those moments when you just want to relax in the apartment, the canal location itself is super quiet and allows an escape from the hustle and bustle.
Most places are easily within walking or cycling distance. For places further out or if you want to give your legs a rest, transport links are in abundance with Weesperplein Metro station and tram stop just around the corner.
Lounge area - flooded with light and complete with Plasma TV, Cable & top surround sound music system (including Airplay).
The Appartment was just beautiful and located very near to the city.
Carl is very friendly and helpful also when I was very annoying and had a lot of questions, he was answering fast. If I come back to Amsterdam I would love to stay at Carls place again!!
Our stay at Carl's apartment was amazing! The entire place was very nice and clean. Carl was out of town but made sure that his friend was available to let us in and answer any questions. The rooftop patio was great to have access to as well. The apartment is in a quiet area but very close to the city center and tons of great restaurants and cafes. We would recommend this place to anyone!
Would definitely recommend it to others.
Very cozy and clean apartment and everything is well prep when arrive. Carl has maps, tourist guide book and infos when we first met up at the apartment.
Shampoo, shower gel and lotion is all ready for you....the kitchen is welcome to use with full equipment as wel.. a beautiful well of the canon and is supper Close to the Metro station ( like 2 mins walk?)
Walking to central station /main attractions or Museum is about 30 mins walking..
The only thing might be a problem for others might be the stairs ..it's on the 4th floor after all..if you have heavy luggage, should put it consideration..
Carl`s apartment is a lovely place to stay in Amsterdam. Clean, a great roof terrace, not far from the city center and easily reachable from the airport. He gave us maps and useful information about Amsterdam. We can recommend it. :-)
Lovely stay at Carl's place, it is a beautiful, modern and stylish apartment, which the photos do not do justice to. Located on the topmost floor, the room we stayed in was cozy and nice for the two of us, the shared toilet was clean and the kitchen was convenient. We didn't interact much with Carl as we were out for the most part, but he did provide a helpful guide with instructions pertaining to his apartment and recommendations around and about Amsterdam which was very useful.
We had a really great stay and Carl made us feel very at home. The flat is in a great location and is so close to the metro as well as walking distance to local attractions.
We particularly liked the 'guest guide' folder and map that Carl provided in our room as it was really handy to have some non-tourist suggestions listed. We visited four of the suggestions in this folder and loved each place, so Carl obviously has great taste! This is obvious though in the décor and style of the flat - so beautiful, tidy and clean. The roof terrace was an added bonus for us to clear our weary heads on Sunday morning where we could sit and drink our tea.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Amsterdam and I hope to stay again in the future.
