The Space

The flat is a 10-12 min walk to the Jordaan, home of the Anne Frank House, a crazy good amount of cafes, pubs, restaurants, shops, Kodak/Nikon/Canon moments and home of my former flat. When you snake through its virtually car-less little streets, it feels enchanted in a Disney sort of way except that it's real.

Ok, the flat…it's a 2-bed apartment where I also stay. Your bedroom is about 12 sq meters. The toilet and shower are separate. There's a "make you wanna cook somethin' kitchen with breakfast bar. There’s a balcony for sunning or smoking or both. There’s TV that is cable, internet that is wireless. If need be, there’s sofa that is bed. O ye of heavy baggage be warned; there are three flights of steps that need to be climbed before reaching my flat!

Ok, me…I copied the description below from my (website hidden) profile because I'm just a wee bit lazy. Why Airbnb and not (website hidden)? Because I moved to a 2-bed flat and I left my money-making corporate gig and rent needs to be paid!

"My mission is to meet and enjoy the company of as many lovely people as possible.
I smile a lot and laugh loudly...sometimes too loudly...I've been told to shut-up many a time. Gimme a beat and I'll move to it. Wanting to sing really well isn't the same as singing really well, is it? I'm curious to the point of exhaustion. My imagination is equipped with Smell-o-Vision. I really really really really dig PEOPLE."

I made my debut in NYC to Kenyan and Tanzanian parents, grew up in Bethesda, Maryland, went to school in Los Angeles, California, worked in Boston, Massachusetts, went to school (again) in Washington D.C. and have now lived in Amsterdam for 9 years.

You can determine the level of engagement you’re after. If you’re down for it, I will ask you millions of questions and tell you my life story. I can also just keep it to “Good morning” or “have fun”. It’s your party :-)

  • Trista was a gracious host even though she was out of town. She handled all the details to give us great directions and had one of her friends meet us at the flat. The flat was located just little too far away from where we wanted to go so we rented bikes at a local bike store. We had the place to ourselves and it was very peaceful. We had a private bedroom, there was reliable internet and the flat was close to a lot of cool places to hang. Beware, Her flat has NOT been cleaned in years!

  • Although we never met Trista as she was away while we stayed in Amsterdam, we did meet her friend Rob who met us at the flat and handed over the key - he was very friendly and we appreciated his warm welcome. Trista provided very detailed instructions for locating the flat and was very helpful in making the arrangements to stay before we arrived. The flat is a short enough bus ride from Central station, though if you want to walk to the tourist areas it will be about 40 minutes. There is a shopping market near the flat where you can pick up anything you need a several good restaurants nearby too (within 5 minutes walk). The best thing about the flat was the terrace! Overall we enjoyed our stay but we may consider staying somewhere a bit closer to the downtown core next time.

  • Trista was out of town, but she took care of everything I needed. A friend met me to give me keys and show me around. The flat was neat and clean. The bed was super comfy! It's in a great neighborhood- cafes and groceries near by. It was a nice 20 minute walk to the city center.

    She made us feel as if we were in our house.
    the house was really nice too, exactly like the pictures.

  • Nice flat, Trista was very friendly and gave us some very helpful tips. The neighbourhood is very peaceful and quiet. If I visit Amsterdam again, I will choose Trista's place, hands down.

  • Staying with Trista was amazing ! Her place is very cosy and comfortable. We went walking to everywhere, the centre is like 20 min walk, but if you don't like to walk, there is a bus stop in front of her house. We loved staying there !
