Stay in hip Oud West - cozy flat

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Stuyvesantstraat, Amsterdam, North Holland 1058, Netherlands

Want to stay in a cozy and tasteful apartment in one of Amsterdam's most happening neighbourhoods? I welcome you to stay in my home and make your time in the Dutch capital one to remember.
Easy does it.

The Space

I travel a lot and know how hard it can be to find the right accommodation. Amsterdam is particularly bad sometimes. Overpriced and trashy hostels, miniature hotel rooms and limited availability can really make your trip a nightmare.
Therefore I'd like to offer my stylish and cozy apartment to other travelers while I am away.

The apartment is located on the border of Oud West / De Baarsjes neighbourhoods and is excellently connected to the airport (Schiphol Amsterdam), Centraal and Zuid Stations and the city center.
In the neighbourhood you will find:
* One of Amsterdam's best coffee shops
* Various large supermarkets + a daily market
* Some of Amsterdam's best specialty coffee bars are close by (if you're really into coffee visit my blog: (website hidden))
* A large variety of shops and food outlets
* Stylish bars and restaurants
* The famous Vondelpark is about 7minutes walking distance
* Leidseplein Square is about 15-20 minutes walk or roughly 5-7 minutes cycle away

2 Tramlines (7 and 17) and 2 buslines (15 and 18) directly serve my neighbourhood

In the apartment you will find:
* A tasteful and bright interior
* A fully equipped kitchen
* Separate bathroom and toilet
* A Master bedroom with flatscreen TV towards the quiet back of the apartment
* Wifi internet
* A spare bedroom (currently used as walk in closet) to store your suitcases
* Fold out sofa in living room also sleeps 2 more people
* A lovely balcony with afternoon sunshine
* An old school JVC ghettoblaster to connect your iPod

Plenty of parking outside the door, however being Amsterdam this is very expensive. Cheap parking is easily reachable by bus and located at the Olympisch Stadion.

If you're looking for a homely place to stay in our lovely city, then this is it.
I look forward to welcoming you in my home.

Interaction with Guests

Where possible, I will do the check in and check out and provide as many tips on the city as possible. If I cannot be there in person, I will make sure that the check in process is smooth and easy.

The Neighborhood

It's vibrant, really up and coming and very well connected. The airport is close as is the center. The area doesn't get that many random tourists, which is nice because it is more local than other neighbourhoods.

  • The 5 of us had a great time staying in Alex's comfortable and inviting apartment. It's very modern and well equipped, with everything simple and clear to use. The fantastic open windows overlooking the street make the apartment light and airy. It's great staying a little outside the centre as you get to see more of the beautiful city - and we loved being so near to vondelpark! To get into town it was a quick tram17 from the top of the road. Alex was an informative and attentive host (despite Alex being away at the time) and it was a pleasure to enjoy his apartment! Highly recommended!

  • Alex's place was super nice- clean, well decorated, cosy, all nice amenities. Its located in a great neighborhood and is a 15 min tram trip to the airport and a 20 minute walk to the museums and close to the vondelpark.

    He is really friendly and accommodating. It turns out he has a review style blog called the coffeevine and had some great recommendations for places with awesome coffee, food, and atmosphere- and all the ones we stopped at were indeed great places to go. When we arrived he even drew us alittle map with places worth checking out and a route to walk down into the museum area and was easily contacted via email the whole time we stayed there.

    I would definitely stay at Alex's apartment again.

  • What a wonderful stay we had in Alex's apartment.. lovely quiet street, perfectly described and suited us well.. Alex responded promptly to my enquiries and was happy to change our plans at the last minute as one of our friends was arriving early.. I can't suggest any improvements.. many thanks..

  • Thank you Alex for the loan of your apartment for our few days in Amsterdam. Alex kept in touch before we arrived and made sure that everything was in place on our arrival. The apartment is very comfortable and being very close to the Overtoon and Vondelpark had something for everyone.I would thoroughly recommend Alex's place as a great place to stay for a holiday in Amsterdam.

About
I'm a very easy going and cultured individual who loves traveling, eating good food, music, art and going crazy at festivals. I am pretty organised, which is also reflected in my home. I keep it nice and clean. Generally I socialize a lot and spend as much time with my friends as possible. I speak 4 languages fluently (and bit and pieces of 3 more), I cook at lot at home and appreciate people with good education, unusual interests and those who are able to hold a decent conversation. Other than that I am really friendly and look forward to welcoming you to my home!
