For your information:
1. I got 2 rooms for rent, not the whole appartment.
2. Before making the reservation, please read my description and services I offer and the rules of the appartment.
I look forward to be your host in Amsterdam
My name is Peter, I am dutch, gay and live in Amsterdam for many years. During your stay I can provide you information about the city and its surroundings, places to eat and visit.
I am well organised and like my place very much. I am open and respectfull to my guests. I started my B&B 5 years ago. Besides that I work as a teacher and social nurse.
About my appartment:
I have 2 floors. On the first floor is the big bathroom (designed from the twenties),the toilet and the kitchen (to use for the breakfast only from 8 am till 11 am). On the second floor you have the masterbedroom and the smaller double room. I can accomodate max 5 people on the second floor (3 guests max in masterbedroom,the third person can sleep on a comfortable matras on the floor,2 guests max in the double room). From the masterbedroom only you have acces to a wonderfull big roofterrace where you can relax and have a sunbath in all rest and privacy.
My house is a monumental canalhouse, build in 1880's. It still has a lot of original details that creates a typical canalhouse atmosphere.
200 meters from the famous LEIDSEPLEIN,where you can find the nightlife, shops, restaurants, museum area and the fantastic Vondelpark! Everything is around the corner!!!!
How to get to my place:
From Airport Schiphol take bus 197 at busterminal B9/B11 to Leidseplein. Buses leave every 15 minutes. When you get off at Leidseplein,walk into the Marnixstraat, then take second street left. That's my street: Leidsekade. You can also take a train from the airport to central station and from there you take tram 1,2 or 5 to Leidseplein. Usually the bus is the fastest connection to my house. By taxi from the airport to my house costs about 35 euros.
Peter, it was great to meet you and stay in your apartment. Very well located and comfortable. And Peter is a friendly, kind and gave me great pointers on what to do in Amsterdam. Next trip I will definitely stay there. Or in his Barcelona apartment.
We had a great time at Peter's and loved his fabulous flat! Since Peter was not there, his neighbour welcomed us on our arrival and explained everything. The master bedroom is at the top of a dramatic, incredibly steep staircase and has amazing views over the Amsterdam canals. We found the kitchen clean and full of yummy foods ready for our morning breakfast. Each room has its own independent heater, so the freezing January winter was (almost) forgotten as we stepped in.
The flat is located in one of the most authentic parts of Amsterdam with all museums, canals and amenities within walking distance. The train station is just a few tram stops away and there is a direct bus link to the airport. We really felt like living in the ‘real’ Amsterdam and would suggest anyone who wants the same to spend some time at Peter’s.
The apartment has a great location! It is in a walking distance to everything. We walked everywhere while we stayed there from 01 till 07 of january and really enjoyed it. Big and clean room, atmosphere of canalhouse and good breakfast made our vacation very pleasant. Thanx a lot to Peter, because he is a great host! We wish to stay at this apartment when we come back to Amsterdam again.
Accueil très sympa. Bel appartement meublé avec goût. Quartier calme. Localisation idéale.
Petit bémol : toilettes et salle de bain au 1er niveau, chambre au 2ème séparés par un escalier de 30 marches, très raide.
Chambre idéale pour 2 mais pour 3 un peu juste (matelas à même le sol pour le 3ème couchage).
Excelente ubicación. Todo limpio y buen desayuno. El baño está separado de la habitación, por lo que hay que bajar una escalera bien empinada para llegar a este. Peter muy amable.
my stay in Amsterdam was great, the apt was really nice and the location was very central
Our stay at Peter's place was great. His apartment is perfectly located at walking distance of plenty of great sights and yet on a quiet street (and it was fun to experience the typical steep stairs of an Amsterdam apartment!). The room was nice and big, perfect for our family of three and the rooftop terrace is very special. The only little thing for us was the softness of the bed as we prefer for our back a firm mattress. The self-serve breakfast that is offered with the room is well-stocked and very yummy. Peter wasn't in town when we arrived but arranged for a friend of his to great us and all was very well organized. Peter is a great host!
Уютные аппартаменты (большие по меркам Амстердама) расположены практически в самом центре Амстердама - вблизи от всех достопримечательностей и злачных мест - но несколько в стороне от шума и суеты. Петер - гостепреимный, отзывчивый, открытый для общения хозяин. Большое спасибо ему за помощь в открытии для себя этого самого улыбчивого города! Cozy apartments (large by the standards of Amsterdam) are located almost in the center of Amsterdam - close to all the attractions - but a little bit away from the hustle and bustle. Peter - hospitable, helpful, open to communication host. We would like to express our gratitude to him for his help in to discover the most smiling city!
We stayed in Peter's beautiful canal house for four days. Thanks to the favorable position of the house everything we wanted to see in Amsterdam was in walking distance and the way to the bus stop for transit to/from the airport took only a few minutes.
The room we lived in was spacious, nice furnished and cosy.
Peter was very friendly and helpful. In the morning we enjoyed sitting in his kitchen where a lot of things for breakfast had been prepared. We felt well cared of.
Our experience in staying at Peters house was great and we will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Amsterdam. Peter and, also Matthew, were absolutely kind and warm, so that we felt very well cared for. The house and especially the room we were living in, are absolutely beautiful and clean.
Furthermore we have to say that the location is perfect, directly at the canal and in walking distance to everything.
Peter, thank you for being a perfect host. We hope to see you again!
