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).
Bright and quiet room with a very comfortable bed in a beautiful, modern and stylishly furnished apartment very well located. Just next to the metro station and by foot only 10-15 minutes to the city center. Great roof terrace with view! Exactly like on the pictures.
Carl was really nice, welcoming and easy to talk to. Thanks a lot!
We hebben een erg fijne tijd gehad bij Carl. Erg gastvrij en een perfecte locatie.
Unfortunately we did not get to meet Carl so we were met by his friend Jerome who was very helpful. The apartment is very nice, clean and right on a canal and in close vicinity to the station. The room itself is bright and quiet. There are a lot of stairs up to the apartment but the benefit of this there is a beautiful roof top where you can sit and enjoy the a glass of wine as you look out over the roof tops. We had a very pleasant stay here at Carl's place.
Bel appartement propre et fidèle à la description et aux photos. Nous avons pu utiliser la cuisine qui est très bien équipée ainsi que la machine à laver et le sèche linge sans aucun souci.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Jeroen qui a su nous conseiller mais aussi être très discret de sorte que nous avons presque eu l'impression d'être seuls à l'appartement.
Thanks for hosting my sister and I! We had a blast in Amswterdam. Loved your location. Walked everywhere and away from tourist. We loved it. Carl was not there but his friends were awesome and had great tips!
As everyone says the 4 floor walk up in a canal house is very tricky but definitely worth it for the beautiful apartment and great views from the terrace. Perfect location near trams/metro and within walking distance from museums and more. We had a great time in Amsterdam and cannot wait to return to see everything we didnt have time for.
Carl was away when we arrived but his friend Jeroen was a very welcoming and helpful.
