This apartment is the perfect place to stay for a couple, families, or small groups of friends.
The house has a very natural and comfortable vibe. Experience the romance of a bedroom connected to a private roof terrace!
This apartment never lost it's traditional romantic atmosphere with its high ceilings with wooden beams, and original wooden floor. The best part of the house is the bedroom, which is directly connected to a private roof terras. The roof terras is flanked by a beautiful Maple tree.
The whole apartment will be accessible for guests during their stay. There is:
- Washing Machine
- a New Oven
- BBQ on the Roof Terrace in summer!
Interaction with Guests
I reach out to all my guests personally. They will be introduced to the apartment by me or one of my neighbours, if I'm not in town (they are the best!).
I will not stay in the apartment myself while my guests are here.
The apartment is situated next to the Westerpark in the very ambient Staatsliedenbuurt. The Westerpark has many festivals in summer, sunday markets during weekends, lot's of cozy bars, and a vibrant nightlife all year round.
It's close to the popular Jordaan area (10min. walk, 3min. bike) and not far from the City Centre (less than 10min. by bike).
The bus (#21) from Amsterdam Central Station stops at a 1 minute walk from the front door.
Tramline #10 runs trough the street, which connects West and East Amsterdam. If you don't mind walking you could also walk from the Central Station (25 min.), it's a nice walk I personally like.
Other Things to Note
The apartment is at the 3rd floor. For elderly, or people with difficulties walking stairs this might be inconvenient.
Please clean the apartment before you leave, we do not charge cleaning costs.
It is not allowed to bring any guests outside of the booking.
Smoking in house is not allowed but there are two balconies and a roof terrace ;)
We had a great stay and I highly recommend Filemon as a host and his apartment. While Filemon was out of town during our stay, he was very responsive and communicative and had a neighbor let us in when we arrived. I really appreciated all the effort to host us even when he was away and coordinated with others. The apartment is beautiful with lots of character. We really enjoyed the location. We went running in the park just two blocks away and also enjoyed being so close to the Jordaan neighborhood. It's true that the three flights of stairs are very steep but we were fine with our travel backpacks and that style is also very typical of Amsterdam so we had fun experiencing it as well! It took us about 30 minutes to walk to the center of things and we always chose to walk over public transportation.
The apartment is beautiful and just as described. Filemon is a very friendly host and we would happily stay here again when we next visit. Thank you for the experience!
Great flat with all you need and the location is perfect for a stay in Amsterdam! Filemon was very friendly and helpful with tips for the area around the flat.
Filemons apartment was exactly as depicted in the photos. A very typical residential neighbour hood out of the city center, not touristy at all. Which is actually quite nice, an authentic experience.
We walked into the city a lot, but there is a tram just outside for days when your a bit more tired!!
Filemon was so kind and friendly, and made sure we were ok and told us to call him if we needed something.
We stayed here for new year which was amazing, all the locals having parties, and fireworks from the roof tops all around us!!!
I recommend this place if you don't mind being out of the city center and looking for a more authentic experience, and don't mind steep steep stairs!!!
Filemon was a perfect host. His apartment is in a beautiful area and he greeted us with a smile and was really helpful in telling us about the local area and beyond.
The apartment itself was just as in the photos. Light, airy, spacious and clean. Would DEFINITELY recommend!
Super appart, grand, quartier très calme. Arrangeant pour les heures de départ et d'arrivée, aucun souci.
I would highly recommend Filemon as a host. He is friendly, intelligent and well-travelled, and communicates well with his guests. His apartment is a perfect base in Amsterdam for a couple, near to transport, and is clean, comfortable and stylish.
Please be aware that apartments in Amsterdam often have steep staircases, and this is also the case with Filemon's apartment. It did not worry us, and added to the charm of our stay. However, if you have concerns with your knees, or carrying suitcases up stairs, I would suggest you consider an apartment on street level while in Amsterdam.
Thank you Filemon for a warm welcome and a great stay. We only wish we had more time in Amsterdam during this stay to explore the area in Westerpark.
Amsterdam is my city, I was born and raised here. I have a background in Physics and Industrial Design Engineering and have worked both as a Physicist and Designer since. Mostly in Innovation and Technology.
Currently I work at an online technology start-up, 3D Hubs, for which I have to travel a lot. This is when I like to AirBNB. Meeting new people and staying at homes is a far better experience than staying at hotels, is my opinion :)
Next to my travels I also have my own Amsterdam apartment listed at AirBNB. Of course, I would personally recommend it as a very nice place to stay when in Amsterdam ;)
I'm always up for new adventures!
