This nicely furnished, newly renovated apt is bright and spacious with 8 windows. The appliances are new. There are two flat screen TVs, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, desktop computer, wi-fi, and high speed internet.The floors are wood thru out the apt. The large living room and bedroom are separated by a nice corridor.The living room has two sofas, and is very comfortable. Doors in all rooms, and lots of privacy. Lots of books and CDs.There is a bathroom with a tub, and a separate toilet. There is a wood burning fireplace in the living room.
Wonderful views of the Keizersgracht Canal and Wester Church in front, and trees and gardens in back.
The apt is in a historic area. It is two blocks from the Anne Frank House. It is also a very convenient neighborhood filled with cafes, galleries and restaurants, and a supermarket next door.(The Jordaan) We have 3 tram lines, and several bus lines on the street. We are 5 blocks from the wonderful Saturday noordemarket.(organic market)
It is a 10 minute tram ride to Central Station, and from there a twenty minute ride to Schipol airport.
We have two good friends who live a few blocks away, and take care of the apt. They will meet you with the keys, and explain how everything works. They are wonderfully helpful, and know the apartment well.

I was born in Amsterdam, and my husband and I go every 2-3 years. We usually stay with family but this time around we decided to rent an apt., as we were planning on staying in Amsterdam for 3 weeks. I had contacted a few rental properties, but for some reason I had a good feeling about this apt. and the owner Joan was always so fast with replying to a question I had regarding the apt. Great, great customer service. The apt. was wonderful. Clean, very comfortable, and talking about location, it could not of been better, as I know Amsterdam. From all the times we have been in Amsterdam I would have to say this was the best because of this wonderful apt., and coresponding with Joan. Sylvia and Veto who gave us the keys and showed us around the apt. are also wonderful and very helpful. We will be back and will definitely be renting this apt. again. Like I said, this apt. is our new home away from home. Thank you Joan, you have a gem of an apt.

This is our seventh visit to Amsterdam. This apartment is the closest to being home that we have experienced. The owners were very responsive and Sylvia and Vito the local contacts are jewels. Thanks Our next trip to Amsterdam will be only when this apartment is available. This apartment and its location will be memories we will never forget. The month spent here was our best vacation ever.

The location could not have been any better. Being in the Jordaan made it so convenient for us to walk or take the tram anywhere in the city. From the living room window you can view The Westerkerk church (where Rembrandt is buried) & the Keisergracht canal. The apartment has everything you need plus the building has an elevator, which a lot of canal homes do not have, so you don't have any stairs to climb with luggage or groceries. We stayed for 5 weeks & loved every minute. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Thank you Joan for your help while I was planning our trip & to your friend Sylvia who met us in Amsterdam.

My husband and I stayed in this lovely flat for two and one half weeks in April. We have been traveling to Amsterdam for the past 29 years and this apartment, owned by Joan and Neil, was one of the most beautiful we have encountered. The fine art and furnishings are straight out of the pages of an Architectural Digest with a designer kitchen and a quite, garden-view bedroom. Trams are just downstairs to take you anywhere you want to go in the city and the market is just next door. The owners are extremely accommodating and friendly. If you are lucky enough to stay in this Amsterdam flat, you will experience Amsterdam like a local. You will also appreciate the wifi capability for your own laptop or the computer in the apartment along with the washer and dryer. It just doesn't get any better than this!

Joan's condo in San Miguel de Allende was perfect. It is beautifully decorated, very comfortable and an easy, interesting 10-15 minute walk to El Jardin. I was very glad not to stay in the busy center. Right near the condo, there were some wonderful fruit and tortilla shops, and the huge grocery store, Mega, is a 10 minute walk away. There is a vonage phone, too, in the condo, which was so convenient for calling my family (unlimited calls to Canada and the States). Joan was a pleasure to make arrangements with and was very responsive to emails. And Oliver, the caretaker of the condo, is really welcoming and helpful if you need anything. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet, beautiful, comfortable place to stay in San Miguel!
Joan is a very responsive host. Plus her property manager, Oliver Caraco is terrific. I had some minor issues with phone, shower, and internet which got fixed quickly. The condo is quiet and restful, only a 15 minute walk from El Jardin.
The bed was very uncomfortable for me. Overall I would recommend this place highly, especially if the bed situation improves.
Very cozy appartment in a very quiet and private street. Perfect for a couple in a convenient location, not so far from downtown but still far enough to avoid noise for September 15th. independence day celebrations. Would definitely stay again. Was not able to meet Joan but she was very accesible by mail and met with Oliver, the manager without any trouble. Thanks for letting us stay in your place!
A very nice condo, perfect for a couple. Pleasant patio, big king bed (very firm), comfortable kitchen/dining/living area. We came to S. Miguel with a car and it was wonderful to have a place to park inside the condominium compound gate. Very close to the center but far enough away to avoid noise ( zero traffic noise). All in all, a very good spot for our stay in S. Miguel.
This place is absolutely fantastic! Whether it is your first visit to San Miguel or are already familiar with the city, Joan's place has the best of both worlds: you are close enough to the city center (about a 20 minute walk - also, very pretty!) but also far away enough that you can "get away" from the noise and the tourists. The apartment itself is very comfortable, it does get chilly especially at night, but that is easily fixed by turning on the fireplace. Also, we were very pleasantly surprised to find hand-written instructions and tip sheets with recommendations for dining and shopping, which were very helpful! I would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend. Thanks!
Our stay at this condo was excellent. Its in a rather good location. Far away from all the city noise but close to the center of the main Jardin. My family and I truly enjoyed our stay. The Condo is very well furnished and located in a secure and small gated community. Very nicely decorated and very clean. The condo has everything you need to enjoy a good stay in San Miguel. The city is beautiful and it has so many attractions. The condo is perfect in every way. My family and I will definitely stay here again in the future.
Staying at this condo made our stay in San Miguel so much more comfortable.
Good value for the price. Best part is the silence. Generally a very nice stay. Gracias!
We enjoyed our stay at Joan's condo in San Miguel and would consider returning. The condo itself was very well equipped and we found that we used the washer/dryer and the free Internet and long distance service more than we anticipated. The condo itself was very quiet, which is sometimes a challenge in Mexico. The onsite Manager, Oliver, was very helpful if we needed directions or assistance. In a few instances, we had a question for Joan and she was very quick to repond by phone or email.
As advertised, the location was about a 20 minute walk to Centro and La Jardin, but there were lots of inexpensive taxis and regular buses within a short distance to the condo. Also, some of the best restaurants in town are as close as a 10 minute walk.
All in all, we loved San Miguel and Joan's Condo was a big part of this.
My parents had an amazing time. They loved the apartment and the peacefulness of the neighboorhood. Would book again, may be for me.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
