My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Ramona's beautiful home for 4 nights, celebrated our anniversary in Amsterdam.
Ramona has been the most gracious since the first email I received from her, quick response in the most understanding and kind manner. Ramona gave clear instructions on how to get to her home in our communications prior to arrival and answered all the questions I have about breakfast places around her home and transportation to get around the city. Her home is located in a convenient, clean and safe area of the city, 10 minutes walk from the Van Gogh museum.
Upon arrival, Ramona stayed up late to wait for us and welcomed us to her home. The bedroom is the first room on the right from the entrance, beautifully decorated and thoughtfully arranged, the bed is big and comfortable, slept well every night after exploring the city. The toilet and shower are for guest(s) use only, in two separate rooms, they're conveniently located right outside of the bedroom, both are very clean, modern and smells nice. There's a big mirror (with great lighting) in the shower room with sink and drawers underneath, where you can store your toiletry and do your beauty routine. (This part is not shown in the listing picture of "the walk in shower" but I think it's a great feature worth mentioning)
The shower is absolutely great! The hot water is perfect and water pressure is great, best I've had in Airbnb! To me a hot relaxing shower and a very comfortable bed after a long day of exploring is extremely important and Ramona's home provides just that, plus beautiful decor and great hospitality.:))
Her peaceful garden is perfect for tea in the morning.:) During our stay, Ramona invited us for tea, shared her knowledge of Amsterdam and let us know the festivals that was happening that the time.
Before our departure, Ramona gave me some samples from her organic spa, which includes an amazing lip balm(raw vegan, great ingredient) that I love to use for the rest of my trip in Europe, amazing!:)
Ramona's spa was fully book for manicure and pedicure during my stay, I would suggest to book maybe 2-3 weeks in advance for appointment if interested? Massage appointments are more available.
Overall, I highly recommend Ramona's home, I truly appreciate the hospitality and warmth from Ramona, I felt I was being taken care of really well from the first email communication till the day we left.
Note: please try not to make tea and use the kitchen between midnight to 8am, I made tea one night really late (or early am) and unfortunately made some noises. Ramona let us know that when it's late at night and the whole house is quite, sounds from the kitchen can become quite loud and interruptive to their sleep upstairs.
Abbiamo soggiornato una settimana presso la camera nell'abitazione di Ramona, che è stata un host premuroso e (website hidden) ha fornito informazioni e consigli utili sul quartiere e sulla città (e dintorni). La descrizione dell'annuncio corrisponde alla realtà. La zona in cui si trova l'abitazione è comodissima per visitare i musei e comunque non lontana dal centro (20 min. a piedi); il quartiere è tranquillo e sicuro, ben servito dai mezzi.
We spent a week at Ramona's house and she was a careful and helpful host. She gave us useful info and advice about neighborhood, town and sights. The description of the room and house is realistic. The area around the house is near the museums and not far from Dam (the main square, 20 min. walk); the neighborhood is safe and quiet, with good transport services.
This is a great spot to be based in Amsterdam, the main museums are within a 10 stroll, and central Amsterdam is within a 10 minute tram ride (if you stay out beyond midnight a taxi home will cost around 12-15 Euro). Of course, you could also go Dutch and rent a bike - of which there are local options with discount coupons in the room. The area is quiet, residential and safe. Great cafe's locally, I also got a fabulous pedicure at Soap (unfortunately I didn't book in advance with Ramona's salon) and found a brilliant children's toy shop locally. The room and facilities were clean and well presented - lovely soap products from Ramona's shop in the shower. The shower and toilet are not en-suite but are entirely for guest use so not an issue. There's a lovely little back-garden, which I found ideal for breakfast.
Ramona was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. She met me at the bus station, showed me around locally and was happy to answer any questions throughout the weekend. She also made sure there was a fresh supply of coffee for my early morning departure on Sunday.
I had a great stay and would definitely recommend this accommodation.
I had a very warm and friedly welcome. The description of the room agreed and the information about the The description of the accommodation agreed and the information was very good and sufficient. I've got great tips for shopping, sightseeing and places for eat and drinks. I would recommend it.
A localização é excelente, a 5 minutos a pé dos principais museus e inserido num bairro tradicional com bastantes restaurantes e bares.
O quarto é bastante funcional, confortável e decorado com bom gosto.
A anfitriã é muito simpática e coloca-nos à vontade desde o primeiro minuto.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und wurden herzlich empfangen. Das Zimmer, Wc und Bad sind nicht sehr gross, jedoch liebevoll ausgestattet und sauber. Die frischen Blumen im Zimmer und das feine Duschmittel werden uns lange in Erinnerung bleiben. Das Zimmer liegt sehr ruhig und doch zentral. Ramona ist eine sehr nette Gastgeberin. Herzlichen Dank!
Unser Aufenthalt bei Ramona war super. Wir wurden von ihr und ihrer Tochter sehr herzlich empfangen und ihre Unterkunft ist wirklich perfekt. Die Fotos und die Angaben geben einen wahrheitsgetreuen Eindruck. Die Nachbarschaft ist ruhig, sicher und sehr schön. Gleich bei der Anreise haben wir ein sehr schönes Café (Corner Bakery) entdeckt, das fast um die Ecke der Unterkunft liegt. Das Zimmer bei Ramona ist gross und elegant eingerichtet. Und das Bett ist extrem bequem. Die Gäste haben ein eigenes Badezimmer / WC. Von dem Haus aus, kann man eigentlich alles zu Fuss erreichen. Der Museumsplatz liegt wirklich sehr nahe und auch der Vondelpark ist nur wenige Minuten zu Fuss entfernt. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in Amsterdam sehr genossen und würden jederzeit wieder bei Ramona übernachten. Das Quartier hat uns eigentlich fast besser gefallen, als das Zentrum von Amsterdam selbst. Vielen Dank nochmals!
