Apartment - Private room · Funenpark, Amsterdam, North Holland 1018, Netherlands

The Space

In the centre of Amsterdam we have a room with a double bed, and extra fold-out bed at your disposal. The guestroom is on the groundfloor, right next to the entrance, and the rest of the house, (where we live), is on the first floor, including our (shared) bathroom. We do have a seperate toilet and a little fridge at your disposal on the ground floor, so you will have enough privacy! The appartment is in a car-free 'park', surrounded by interesting architectural (price winning) buildings, and very near touristic sites like Artis (the Zoo), Tropenmuseum and parks. A real windmill is only 5 minutes away, and a good beer-brewery, with homemade beers is now located in it! Although the neighbourhood self is quiet, there are lots of nice restaurants and little shops with handmade goods just around the corner, as well as a (student run-)cinema and a big playground at the park!

Good public transport connections are within a 5 minute walking distance, and the bus that takes you to the Central station (and from there to Schiphol airport)stops right in front of our house!

There is an internetconnection available, as well as lots of toys and use of bikes, if possible.

  • Just arrived home from a three day trip to Amsterdam, staying with Zippy and her wonderful family. it's a very welcoming and warm place (they even had 4 amazingly cute kittens!!!) and it was perfectly comfortable sharing the room between the three of us (me and one couple). They were very helpful in finding out about transport and where to go, made yummy breakfast for us - the whole stay was a very nice experience. I can highly recommend staying in this home.

  • Happyest place on earth! Zippy a été une des meilleures anfitriones qu'on n'a jamais connus. La maison et la chambre toujours en parfait état, très confortable, et surtout, l'accueil toujours souriant de cette belle famille.
    Merci beaucoup encore une fois, et j'ai déjà nommé min coin de tulipes: "Le coin Zippy".
    PS: Le petit-déj était très très bon!

  • Zippy and her family are perfect hosts, very patient with my very lively 10 month old! Lovely spacious house, very clean and a lovely breakfast, very close to Amsterdam central station (just 6 stops on the bus). Would definitely stay again!

  • This was me and my girlfriends first airbnb experience and it was absolutely perfect. Zippy and her husband Joram took really good care of us and gave us really great tips where to go, to experience Amsterdam. Also the breakfast was incredible!!

    This is perfect if you want to live in a calm and secure area. It's close to the city (tops 10min bike/bus) to Central Station and very easy to find. Zippy and her family was very welcoming and helpful.

    This place deserves it's good airbnb-reputation.

  • Both of my girlfriend and I like Zippy's apartment very much. The room is spacious and very clean. It is very cozy to live in. The location of her apartment are really very convenient. We were very welcome by Zippy's family.

    If possible in the future, we would choose to live in her apartment again.

    Many thanks for your consideration, Zippy.

  • Since it´s all said by others guests at Zippy´s house.
    I only expect to see Zippy´s family at Madrid to treat them the way we were hosted while being in their house in Amsterdam.
    See you soon!!

  • It's been a week since we visited Zippy an her charming family with the two little kitten. We've stayed just for two days in Amsterdam and enjoyed the cosy room and the home of Zippy and Joram ... it was the perfect temporary home.
    As the morning where rainy we could enjoy our delicious and lovely made breakfast till the sun came out.
    Zippy shared with us all the insider tipps and we enjoyed the nice little restaurants and markets beside the touristic hussle.
    It was a great intruduction into the airbnb. Thank you Zippy

  • Zippy and family are terrific hosts! We especially enjoyed our delicious breakfast each morning served with the perfect latte, our evening chat with tea and stroopwaffles, and the clean and comfortable accommodations. Zippy recommended some great restaurants and the de Grooyer windmill is just down the street. Public transportation is conveniently located or, if you enjoy walking, you can get to many points of interest on foot or bike. Would definitely come back again!

  • My daughter and I could not have asked for a better starting point for our 5 week European adventure! Zippy and her wonderful family became our family in Amsterdam. The loft room was very spacious, the bed very comfortable, and my 7 year old daughter immediately felt at home. Everything was clean, breakfast was lovely. And Zippy was a fountain of information on what to do, where to eat, and how to get around as well as understanding about late breakfast as we were ver jet lagged after an overnight flight from the US..

    The apartment is extremely easy to find and a very short bus ride from central station as well as convenient to the tram to Vondelpark and the Van Gough and Rjikesmuseum. An overall fabulous experience!
