About this listing
Best Location, Spacious Apartment. Stunning 360 View! Little bars, romantic restaurants, wonderful park, art galleries...you name it. Without any doubt this is the nicest neighborehood to stay. Lets say Williamsburg of Amsterdam.
ENTIRE HOUSE (half of a canal house!). JUST FOR RENT SO NO PERSONAL RUBISH - CLEAN EMPTY CLOSETS, LIKE A LUXURY BOUTIQUE HOTEL. Located on the Noordermarkt which is the most pittoresque area in Amsterdam with Saturday Bio Foodmarket and Monday Vintage cloth market, right on the square. Spectacular view (8 windows!) and spacious and tastefully decorated. It has two floors, one bedroom floor with king size bed and a living room with open kitchen (and a SMALL but new, clean good shower and toilet) where you enter on the ground floor.
Coffee maschine, floor-heating, 80 art film dvd's, HiFi sound, WIFI, Art books and so on.
Ideally situated you are in a walking distance to all the city most popular attraction. This canal is a very popular canal in the city and is connected with other beautiful canals in the city. The Prinsengracht, together with the Keizersgracht and the Herengracht canal. The Prinsengracht is situated in the very center of Amsterdam and runs north from the Brouwersgracht to the Amstel River in the south-east. This area is great for walks and you will enjoy the traditional Amsterdam Canals. Small bars and good restaurants, and lost of trendy fashionable shops.
The apartment is a house on its own so to say, so no sharing of anything. All private spaces and no crossing neighbors or house mates! Your own front door entrance.
Jonathan and his girlfriend actually live in the same building, but on the 3rd and 4th floor.
An other great thing is the 'stoepje'. These are the little steps in front of the entrance door. Here you can relax to enjoy either your breakfast or your glass of wine. Your own terrace so to say. And sun (during summer :) from 07:00 till late evening!
All windows are triple glass, eliminating annoying sound from outside.
(Needless to say: we always have white clean fresh towels, fresh 5 star bed linnen and feather king size pillows - Monica our friendly cleaning lady guarantees a hyper clean apartment. If you like her to come during your stay, let us know, her fee is 35 euro.
Passe par tout!

Other Things to Note
Funny enough, the only people qualifying the stairs as steep and the shower as small, are some people from the USA. I guess in the US everything is BIG )) In Holland the canal houses are very typical and romantic and yes small. Do not expect a modern design staircase or huge bathroom - the stairs and bathroom are exactly like you see on the pictures. My grandmother who is 87 still runs up an down those stairs when she comes to visit us during summer holidays, and it keeps her fit I guess. The house has absolutely stunning unique selling points: Stunning View from all sides (corner house), Friendly Lifely Cosy Neighborhood, Two Floors, King Size Bed with fresh Damasc linnen, large flatscreen TV with wide collection of DVD's (art films), floor heating, nice open kitchen....and so on an so on....(website hidden) the area please - see it on streetview and convince yourself. MANY THANKS!
Please no smoking and no drugs in the house.

This was my first experience with airbnb and it was a success. Jonathan is very friendly, everything was very clean, easy to handle, the apartment is arranged with lovely little details and I can highly recommend it.
The apartment was just as described and is the perfect place to stay in Amsterdam. There are many cafes and restaurants nearby and it is a beautiful area, maybe the best in all Amsterdam, with wonderful hosts.
I stayed for 2 nights with a friend, and Jonathan was incredibly easy going and welcoming. Perfect location and lovely canal house apartment. I honestly hope I'll be able to stay again when I'm next in Amsterdam and would absolutely recommend it.
Jonathan was a great host. He greeted us when we arrived, and was quick to respond to any messages. He was also offering to make us dinner reservations or messaging me about events happening that I may be interested in.
The apartment was clean and in a GREAT location. It can get a bit noisy at night due to a cafe across the street that packs up its tables late at night, and sets them back up again early in the morning, but there bedroom as an AC unit so you can close your windows and be more comfortable.
Perfect place to reach everything in center and 10 min walk to the train central station. The apartment has a canal view and a large/bright bedroom.
charming authentic place to stay in Amsterdam, it feels like being home in a new city right away. Easy going communication with the owner, nice interior decoration. We really enjoyed our time and might come again!
I had a good experience working with Jonathan. We needed a last minute place in Ams when another airbnb rental fell through. He was quick to respond and had the place ready within hours. The house is comfortable, nicely decorated and well-equipped. The upstairs bedroom is one of my favorite bedrooms ever - amazing views of the canal in one direction and the square in the other.
