I only rent out my appartment above 2 people. Thank you for your understanding.
My appartment is in a quiet street with a green zone in front of me (there is a children's farm and playground if you come with family) . You can park your car in front of my house.
The appartment consists of one master bedroom with one double bed and one single bed. There is also another bedroom with one double bedroom up high. If you come with six people there is a comfortable couch in the living room. ( so for 5 persons real beds and one person has a really comfortable big couch)
There is a new kitchen in it with a dishwasher (yeah!) and a big living room.
I have a laptop that is free to use and an xbox with games that you can also use.
I also have a bamboe garden where you can be to relax (in summer) and do bbq. In winter it's the best (and only) place to smoke a cigarette.
There are a couple of cool restaurants nearby where you can eat or drink next to the water! Take a look at the pictures!

The appartment is close to the NDSM (2 min by foot ):
NDSM-werf looks like the set from a postapocalyptic film – abandoned boats and trams rust by the water’s edge, graffiti scrawls across every surface, smoke stacks belch in the distance, and huge carved wooden tiki heads gaze over it all. The area is actually a city-sponsored art community called Kinetisch Noord that has taken over a derelict shipyard. Participants converted a mondo old warehouse to hold more than 100 studios, theatres and a skateboard hall, and it has quickly become a centre for underground culture and events, such as the Over het IJ Festival. MTV thought the area was so cutting-edge that it, too, revamped one of the old industrial buildings and made it its European headquarters. It’s true that unless an event is going on, there’s not much to do besides wander around and ogle the recycled-junk street-art (which is pretty damn cool). Café Noorderlicht (Neveritaweg 33), in a Tibetan-prayer-flag-draped greenhouse, provides food and drinks in a funky ambience; it's open from 11am to late.
Please also take a look at Pllek. A new cafe /restaurant that openend. It's the only place with a citybeach. The atmosphere is funky and it's an amazing place when the sun shines :)
The appartment is for guests only. Guests have acces to two sleeping rooms, kitchen, spacious living room, toilet, shower and a spacious garden. They have also access to 5 free bikes.
Interaction with Guests
I will be present when guests have booked my place.
It's safe and relaxt. There is a child farm, play garden and football court very close. Parking for car is FREE.

Other Things to Note
NEVER put the dishwasher and the laundry machine on at the same time!! Thx :)
Don't make too much noise. If I get complaints from neigbours, i will have to ask you to leave. ( this has never happened before so don't be the first one ;)
We were in Amsterdam for a weekend and stayed at Peter's apartment. It was everything we could have hoped for. The apartment is very spacious, the living room full of entertainment possibilities (TV, audio station, board games, books etc.) with a couch and a big table. The two bedroom are big enough for 6 people (3 in one room, 3 in another) and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could ever need. A big advantage for us was the possibility to park our car in front of the building for free. The yard is quite big and welcoming as well. The apartment was only 20 minutes away from the city center (10 min walk + 10 min with the ferry), with restaurants not so far away and a supermarket within 5 minutes of the house. All in all, we loved the place and we would recommend it to anyone.
Really nice place in a quiet area - all oft the trips by ferry to the city were highlights. And with the bikes Amsterdam you can make it to the center and all the sights in no time!
Peter has everything you need - and everything is in good condition. Really nice contact - thanks Peter!
Peter was a great host. Great communication. Great studio. Everything we needed was there. Definitely a place to stay in Amsterdam. Great experience. Thank you once again!
Peter est venu nous accueillir et nous nous sommes tout de suite sentis à l'aise dans cet appart à la décor stylée. Le parking gratuit ( aucun soucis pour se garer) et les vélos nous ont permis de profiter pleinement du week end !
Nous avons passé un super moment entre amis et nous recommandons fortement cet endroit !!
We spent some good quality family time at Peter's apartment. Peter is kind and welcoming & his apartment is clean, bright & comfortable. We loved the neighbourhood! NDSM werf is a free ferry ride away from Amsterdam centre but a place worth discovering on its own. It has a creative, alternative vibe & is tucked away from the non-stop action of the centre. We enjoyed lingering at Plek, a funky, child & dog friendly restaurant. Thank you Peter for helping us discover this tucked away gem of a neighbourhood...definitely one of the best highlights of our entire trip! We highly recommend Peter's apartment for an inspiring stay in Amsterdam!
Buen sitio para alojarse, estuvimos 6 dias, 4 personas y estuvimos perfectamente, el apartamento esta situado en un barrio muy tranquilo a las afueras de amsterdam, en 15 min, cogiendo el barco estas en centraal station, Peter fue muy amable a la llegada y a la salida, y no tuvimos ningun tipo de problema, la casa es como se ve en las fotos.
Sin duda si tuviera que volver, volveria a alojarme aqui.
Nous étions un groupe d'amis de 6 personnes et avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour chez Peter qui est un hôte très accueillant.
Nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de nous rencontrer mais Peter a su se rendre disponible dès qu'on avait une question.
A notre arrivée, l'appartement était très chaleureux, très propre et bien équipé et correspond tout a fait à la description.
L'appartement a la chance de disposer d'une terrasse pour profiter des beaux jours et des barbec entre amis.
Le logement n'est pas compliqué à trouvé et le Parking gratuit juste en face de la maison est un vrai plus.
Peter a su mettre à notre disposition 6 vélos ce qui est indispensable pour circuler à Amsterdam. De l'appartement on peut prendre le bateau navette pour se rendre au centre ville (15 minutes depuis chez Peter pour arriver au centre) et se balader en toute tranquillité dans la ville.
Hello, I'm a Belgian guy who ended up in Amsterdam after studying. I live here now 13 years. I studied Antroplogy, travelled a lot and have my own company now in Social media. Strange combination? ;) I know ..
