Beautiful situated next to the Amstel river with many restaurants and cafes on the Weesperzijde river shore. After a nice walk crossing the Skinny Bridge, Carré Theatre and the Hermitage you are already in the city center with its shops, cafes and museums. Just around the corner from the studio on Wibautstraat reigns an atmosphere of Berlin in the dapper club Canvas and restaurant Baut. In the lively student quarter Pijp district, downtown is the famous Albert Cuyp market where you can shop to your heart's content or wine and dine
Both Amsterdam Amstel station and subway station Wibautstraat (4th stop from Central station, exit Gijsbrecht van Aemstelstraat) are just around the corner.
There is an option to park your car in the vicinity at a daily rate of € 36,- and you can also use P+R location Amsterdam Arena, where you can buy a public transport ticket to Wibautstraat

My wife and me stayed at Marieke's place for a weekend and we had a great time. The weather was really really bad so it was wonderful to have such a nice place to stay. The apartment is just like you can see it on the photos and it has a beautiful vibe to it. The location is great because it's in a quiet neighborhood without being far away from the action. There are two bikes available which makes your stay even more relaxed.
Marieke is a lovely host who really takes interest in giving their guests a wonderful time and who offers her help with everything. For example she has designed a little book with just the right information about where to go, where to find food or where to have lunch & dinner. She even thinks about bad weather and offers rain coats!
If we are coming back to Amsterdam we will definitely trying to stay at Marieke's studio again, that's for sure!
Thank you so much for the beautiful review. Paolo Conte was a gift from two Italian guests, but it does fit well, indeed. Maybe next time we can brainstorm about magazine contents (I have a crazy idea to have a lot of women draw mountainbikes out of their head, and put all the tiny (funny) results on one page, but I don't know how serious the content of the magazine is...)
It was great meeting you and Antje, and I really hope to see you again.
Bij aankomst werden we enthousiast onthaald door Marieke. Ze gaf een prima rondleiding & had een flesje wijn klaarstaan voor ons. Het appartement is echt snoezig! Ze hebben prachtig werk geleverd en alle details zorgvuldig op elkaar afgestemd. Het was ook heel proper allemaal. De platenspeler mèt bijhorende platen was een charmant extraatje. Marieke heeft ons ook goede tips gegeven waar we konden eten, wat we konden bezoeken... Prima gastvrouw! De locatie van het appartementje is ideaal: rustig gelegen, vlak aan het water, vlakbij de metro. De wandelafstand naar het centrum is op zich niet echt ver, maar we waren toch moe 's avonds (in het centrum zelf ook alles te voet gedaan). Er zijn twee fietsen ter beschikking, die je vrij kan gebruiken, aanrader! Ook na ons verblijf zorgde Marieke nog voor ons: koffers konden nog even blijven staan, ze heeft nog mee gezocht naar mijn juweel dat ik verloren was.. Topverblijfplaats om Amsterdam te verkennen!
Marienke was so welcoming and extremely friendly upon our arrival. Along with a bottle of wine and bottled water! The studio looks exactly like the photos and it's absolutely spotless. Marienke responded to any questions I had immediately. The location is about 15 minutes by bike outside the city center and was fairly easy to get there. Definitely recommend this place Marienke was SUCH a sweetheart!
We had a wonderful stay. Marieke was a lovely host and made a huge effort to make sure we were comfortable - she even gave me her eye drops when I had forgotten mine! The neighborhood is very cool with great restaurants and you are still in the center within a 10 minute cycle ride along the beautiful Amstel river.
The flat has a great retro 70's interior with a record player and all. There is coffee and tea, and we even had a bottle of wine as a little welcome gift. Amsterdam houses are old and not very well insulated so I would recommend bringing ear plugs if you're a light sleeper like myself. We could occasionally hear the neighbors and the tram but still slept very well with regular ear plugs. The flat has a very efficient heater and you can also open the windows if you like to have some fresh air. There's a little kitchen with a fridge and cooking plates so yu can visit the Albert Hein supermarket close by and make your own breakfasts etc. We found this very handy!
The bikes provided are great and even come with little lights for night time cycling. I would definitely recommend getting around by bike, but the public transport is also very efficient and close by.
Thanks very much for a lovely stay Marieke, we hope to come back soon!
We had a great time at Marieke's apartment. It was very nice and cozy and we had everything we needed (e.g. Spices and other basic things in the kitchen). The two bicycles that were included were really helpful to get around the city.
Marieke gave us tips where to eat and go shopping and she also wrote a little brochure with 'Things to know' in the apartment and interesting places nearby.
Staying at Marieke's studio was a great experience for our first time in Amsterdam.
The place is tastefully furnished and super clean.
Marieke made us a warm welcome and she was super reactive since the booking, and she did provide great informations about the city and the neighborhood.
We had such a great time around the studio, a lot of cafés and restaurants. We walked a lot because we like it but there are trams and metro close by Weather was perfect, we could dip ours legs in the river and rest on the grass just along the Amstel river around the corner! (people do s(website hidden)ring weekends)
We were very impressed by the P+R parking for Amsterdam for 3 days we payed 3 euros for the car and 5 euros both of us to get to the center and back ! Other european cities should do the same ! We definitely recommend Marieke's place, and we loved Amsterdam !
Het appartement van Marieke is een fantastische plek om Amsterdam te verkennen. Het ligt erg centraal en is gemakkelijk met openbaar vervoer te bereiken. Het is een schoon appartement, van alle gemakken voorzien. Een echte aanrader, zeker als je Amsterdam op de fiets (zitten bij appartement!) wil ontdekken. Bovendien is Marieke een hele attente en leuke gastvrouw.
Samen met mijn vriend Bram en dochter Billie woon ik op de Overamstelstraat in de gezellige Weesperzijde buurt.
Naast de studio run ik ook een strandwinkel 'Blij Amsterdam' op het stadsstrand Blijburg en Bram is freelance cameraman.
We houden van eten en drinken met vrienden, varen en tuinieren
