About this listing
Imagine yourself arriving at Amsterdam Centraal Station. You walk out of the station and take tram no 17 through the beautiful city center. After a 10 minute ride, get off the tram, walk through the Ten Kate market street and you will be home! Then drink a coffee in my beautiful new garden in the sun. That is what it will be like when you stay at my convenientl modern house. It is groundfloor (and the room is upstairs), so you are not staying in an apartment ;)
My home is a beautiful room in Oud West. I moved here with my cat Oscar since October 2011. I feel like a princess here! It is a quiet neighborhood and very close to the city. Amsterdam is so nice to live in!
Every guest comes back home with a big smile. I'll help you find your way, so you can live like a local with your personal wishes.
In Amsterdam it is common to do everything on a bike.

The room Barbara has is exactly as per the pictures...clean, tidy and luxurious!
I had a smooth arrival and Barbara was very welcoming and helped me out with some tips - thanks!
Travelling from here to all the attractions was very easy once you get the hang of the trams...Vodel Park is about a 10 minute walk which was great.
The bed was extremely comfy and I had the perfect sleep. There is also a little TV in the room which was great as I could just chill in the room if I wanted to. I was given my privacy but Barbara was also very hospitable and provided a nourishing brekky every morning.
I would recommend staying here if you're looking for a comfortable room...her cat Oscar was also very friendly and kept me company as I waited for my taxi at 4:30 am!
Barbara was most welcoming to her home and patiently waited my arrival which was delayed due to late trains. Her home is clean, comfortable and modern, located on a quiet street, and provided a wonderful refuge from busy days exploring Amsterdam. Barbara was sensitive to my breakfast needs and a last minute laundry before my departure to another vacation destination. I wholeheartedly recommend Barbara and her home for a comfortable stay.
Barbara was an AWESOME host! Her house is beautiful and she is extremely accommodating. Oscar the cat was a plus and made me feel just as welcome as Barbara did! She is a great host and a great person. I would highly recommend for anyone on Airbnb
Barbara is a very reserved hostess; her home is best suited for guests who prefer privacy & independence during their stay in Amsterdam.
Her home is located in a safe, quiet neighborhood that is is within walking distance of public transport & a lot of great eating places. The room in question has a comfy bed & loads of natural light.
Barbara's house is well located in a quiet neighborhood, nice and peaceful. It has a big market just around the corner which you can buy fresh food and etc. also, she makes you breakfast everyday and it's was very nice. The room itself has a very elegant design and the bed/sheets are very comfortable. Oscar the cat is very friendly too!
I had no problems locating Barbara's home. A key was immediately available to me and I was able to come and go as needed. A Tram station is 2 short blocks away providing easy access to the central city. Barbara pointed out a new center located 2 blocks away which provided a wide range of dining experience at moderate prices. It was a good place to unwind. I took advantage of it everyday for either something to eat or drink before settling down for the night.
