About This Listing
Welcome to our house.
The apartment is 110 square meters and on the first floor of an historical house in the city centre of Amsterdam. (Golden Age architecture). It has an luxurious large open livingroom/kitchen, beautifull bathroom (shower and hottub) and 2 bedrooms. Perfect for 1 or 2 couples or a family.
You'll find that it's fully redecorated and very clean.
It is located in a quiet part of the historical city centre, just around the corner of the beautifull Amsterdam canals and sites like the Hermitage and Maritime museum. The area walking away from the centre is great for kids. With the zoo, park and quiet streets. It's ten minutes walking to the nightlife district and all the great shops. And using a bike everything is just 5 minutes away!
Amsterdam central station is only 10 minutes walking distance and a nice small
neighbourhood supermarket is 3 doors down. Just perfect for a city trip or longer stay.
Right around the corner you will find some nice cafes and restaurants and we will help you explore the city like a local.
Besides that, there is free WIFI-internet and the house is fully equiped with a great kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine etc... And finally my sweet brother and his girlfriend live in the apartment above us, so you can bother them with all your questions ;-) but wil also show you the best places to go for shopping, drinks, dining or nightlife.
- you can use all facilities: wifi, cooking, dishwasher, washingmachine, tumbledryer
- pets are not allowed
- at night please be quiet on the staircase
- no inviting of other guests in the house
If you want to explore the city of amsterdam than you will love this apartment.
It's in walking distance to the centre and also to the centraal station. It is quiet and you have everything you need next to it like a super market, some coffees and some really nice places. The apartment is equipped with everything you need for a longer stay and you will love the instructions! ;-)
It was my 3rd trip to amsterdam but the most comfortable one and I only can recommend this apartment to everyone.
Everything was perfect! Highly recommendable!
The apartment is exactly as described/shown on the pictures, and even better. It`s spacious, stylish and very comfortable. It's equipped with really everything you could ever need.
The location is quiet but still very close to the city center, so everthing is within easy walking distance. Perfect for exploring Amsterdam.
Evan and his brother (living in the same house) are truly hospitable, friendly and very easy going.
We felt good all over and can't do anything other than recommending it in all aspects for 100%!
Thanks for a great stay in a great city.
Evan and Fleur's home was exactly as described, if not better. The bed was super comfortable and the kitchen extremely well serviced for cooking. They left a fabulous goodie package, 2 maps and guide books that were extremely useful and lots of instructions and notes on how to enjoy our stay and the city. This was our first airbnb experience and has probably set the standard far too high for others to compete with. We highly recommend these hosts and will definitely try and stay here again. Evan's family were also wonderful and most welcoming to us. We had a fantastic time staying here. The location was also extremely good and close to everything. Stay here!!!
Amazing stay! we stayed in Evans apartment over easter and the flat was just perfect, and location excellent. Evan and his partner were great hosts with great recommendations on where to go and what to see around town.
We have used this site before but this stay were defiantly the best one so far,and would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to have a great stay in Amsterdam
Evan and Fleur were perfect hosts and their apartment is amazing! Coordinating with them was simple and seamless. Upon arrival we were greeted with a welcome package with wine, beer, some snacks, and even cute notes about Dutch customs. We also received a great list of things to do nearby and useful tips about the apartment, neighborhood and city. The open floor plan of their place was ideal and the location was close to everything but removed enough to be quiet and serene. I highly recommend Evan and Fleur's flat.
Evan's apartment is wonderful! It's spacious, clean, well lit, contemporary and has a young professional / artist vibe. It looks exactly like the photos.
Upon arrival, we saw a cheerful welcome package on the large wooden dining table complete with a city map & guide, letter from him and his wife, restaurant recommendations, Dutch treats and a generous offer of beer and wine! They even put cute little notes on the treats such as, "Dutch people put sprinkles on their toast". My friend and I were at 4 and 5-star hotels in Europe before A'dam and no other hotel could match the welcome he provided. Well done Evan & Fleur!
The apartment has a great book selection where I read about Dutch design and art. The TV was big enough and had plenty of channels in English. The kitchen is very contemporary and filled with plenty of cookware, wine glasses, cutlery, etc. Both the master and guest bed were comfortable, clean and quiet; I slept very well. They tidied up the bathroom and other areas more to make plenty of space for our own stuff. They also have a washer and dryer and iPod player.
The apartment is in a quaint location not too far from Central Station. It's also conveniently located next door to a supermarket and an old cafe. We didn't go out much in the neighborhood but did walk many times to the Jordaan to hit up trendy resto-bars filled with beautiful Dutch women! The Leidseplein, Pijp and other fun areas are a little further to walk but easily accessible with the two bikes Evan and Fleur provided.
We didn't have the pleasure of meeting Evan and his wife but did briefly meet his brothers Jan and Mirik, who were especially kind, warm and welcoming. They definitely trusted us and gave us our space and the ability to enjoy the apartment as if it were our own. We had an awesome time in the apartment and city and any time I come back to Amsterdam, I would stay here.
This was my first Airbnb stay. I hope Evan and Fleur haven't set my expectations too high for Airbnb apartments and hosts.
About the Host, Evan
We are Fleur & Evan.

We absolutely love our city! It is like a global village, with beautifull sites and facinating people. The city is full of nice places, bars, restaurants and culture. We hope you will enjoy it as we do every day.
Our home is the perfect place for exploring the city. Modern and spacious in an historical Amsterdam house. Right in the centre and a nice place to relax after a day of walking or riding a bike.
You'll find that it is very clean and comfortable and we hope you enjoy it as much as the city itself.
