Bright, spacious MUSEUMSQUARE apartment in the upscale residential area 'Old South'.

Strolling distance from Rijksmuseum, van Gogh, Vondelpark, Royal Concerthall and the infamous Leidseplein nightlife hub.

The Space

Bright, spacious MUSEUMSQUARE apartment on the second floor in the upscale residential area 'Old South'.

Living room in the front has a tiny balcony for breakfast in the sun and a hammock for when it rains. The large table is perfect for dinner parties and the sitting room in the back is a chill hang out spot for when you don't feel like going out.

My bedroom in the back is en suite with big windows that looks out on the sky and the golden angel from the Concert Hall.

There's an aerobed and couch for extra guests. Please do notify me in advance so I can put out xtra sheets and stuff.

There's a tv with dvdplayer, but no cable. There's ipod-ready speakers, plenty of books, magazines and... well, you're in Amsterdam, so go out and enjoy!

Guest Access

The entire floor is mine, so you'll have:
- own bathroom
- kitchen with washer/dryer and dishwasher (!)
- wifi

My hallway is shared with lovely upstairs neighbors (both working professionals) who will gladly lend you sugar or coffee if needed :)

Interaction with Guests

I won't be present when you're here as I only list my place when I'm traveling. There won't be too much interaction, but enough to make you comfortable beforehand and arrange a time to meet that suits us both.

The Neighborhood

On strolling distance from the new Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk, van Gogh museum, Vondelpark and Royal Concerthall.

My place is literally 5 mins walk from the infamous Leidseplein, hipster folk neighborhood "de Pijp" and luxury shopping street PC Hooft -- my place is so central, it hurts!

Go out dancing at the Paradiso or Melkweg and walk home. Stroll around on the Albert Cuyp Market and skip home. See my map for tips & pointers.

Never get lost, because all roads lead to Museum square.

Getting around

Tram 2, 5, 12 & 3 stop around the corner and will take you directly through the historic centre to Central Station or to the West / East side of town. Bus 197 takes you straight to Schiphol.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Lizette was an amazing host! So accommodating and generous. The photos don't do the house justice. My boyfriend and I were obsessed with it. Lizette gave us tons of recommendations the catered to our personal interests, told us about the neighborhoods we might like, etc. The bed and couch were both comfy, and the house felt like our own (we wish it were!) All in all, a great stay. Definitely recommend for couples.

  • Lizette's place is super cute and cosy (the pictures don't do it justice!) and best of all very centrally located for visitors. Although we didn't actually meet, Lizette was always contactable and very kindly left us a list of recommendations of things to do/see/eat in Amsterdam. The check-in/check-out process was also very straightforward. I would definitely stay again!

  • Un super appartement, vaste et tout équipé, avec un charme fou. Idéalement situé près des musées, je ne peux que le recommander. Lizette est une hôte sérieuse, sympathique et très arrangeante, nous relouerons cet appartement !

  • Me and my sister vistited Lizettes apartment the second weekend in october and had a wonderful time there even if it was raining most of the time. The location is better than great, only minutes away from the museum quarters and 10 min walk downtown. Perfect, as the airportbus stops almost right outside the door. It is a perfectly quiet, very cozy, personal, big and wonderful apartment and Lizette did her outmost to make our stay as perfect as possible(even when we had locked the neighbor out not knowing that we should not lock the front door with the security lock) . The apartment was a little chilly in the morning, so I recomend bringing warm slippers and Indoor clothing. Note that the bed is qweensize, ok for a couple but not for 2 friends or sisters(but Lizette came directly and helped us out with an extra bed). I would strongly recommend to stay here if you plan to visit wonderful Amsterdam. I will definately come back and stay at Lizettes place!

  • We spend 3 days at Lizette's place. It could'nt be more convenient for us. Her place is cosy and very well situated in the city. We felt at home. Lizette and her mum were absolutly lovely with us, accomodating and helpful with everything. We recommend a little stay at her place. The rain didn't even manage to spoil our stay.

  • Lizette's place is wonderful: steps away from Museumplein, good restaurants and charming neighborhoods. It's airy and sunny and quintessentially Amsterdam in style. We would absolutely stay here again. Great communication, very welcoming. Thanks for a perfect stay!

  • My husband and I stayed 3 nights in Lizette's apartment. We were thrilled to find a rental so close to the Museumplein. We felt right at home and found the accommodations very comfortable and pleasant. Lizette is a lovely person, very informative and helpful. We would certainly stay there again.

  • Lizette is a kind host and we were glad to book her place in Amsterdam over the holidays. I'd recommend it and she was very flexible and communicative during the process. Thanks for having us!

  • I promised LIzette a poetic review, so here goes:

    Staying at Lizette near the canal
    Was nice, and cool and swell

    Markets, museums, bars and fun
    All within a minute's reach under the sun

    And if you want to dance the night away
    In Amsterdam, Lizette's the place to stay.

  • Lizette was an awesome hostess! Unfortunately, she was unable to meet me due to her knee surgery, but she was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had. She made checking in easy also, even though she couldn't be there.

    The apartment is fantastic! Close to everything, but in a nice neighborhood where you don't have to worry about too much noise. Would highly recommend and I would definitely stay there again!

I'm an internationally oriented journalist, who moved back to Amsterdam last summer. Its a marvelous homebase, yet still travel regularly, which is why I offer my place here. Cities are best when a local offers insight, especially in a global village like the Dam. I'll do my best to map out all the ins-and-outs depending on your preferences. This is not an apartment for rental purposes only, I actually live here. This means there's personal stuff everywhere -- of course it will be clean! Euhm, life motto? A better environment starts with yourself.
