The Space

Spacious, sunny, comfortable home with roof terrace (PLUS 2 BICYCLES FREE OF CHARGE)

The spacious apartment of 65m2 has a private roof terrace. The famous and beautiful Vondelpark, as well as the Overtoom street (full with a diversity of nice restaurants, independent boutique shops and breakfast places) are just around the corner.

Exploring the city by bicycle is the nicest way to see the city. Therefore, I offer you my 2 bicycles free of charge!

Within less than a 10 minute bicycle ride you reach the city center with the old canals as well as the entertainment area Leidseplein. A good supermarket (Albert Heijn) is 5 minutes walk and access to the very good public transport system is reached within a 2 minute walk.

It is located in a very quiet typical Amsterdam 1930's street in a safe neighbourhood. Having a drink on the sunny private roof terrace is a very relaxing experience. The large open kitchen has a big wooden dining table and doors opening to another sunny balcony. It has a coffee machine, espresso machine, fridge, freezer, water cooker, oven, microwave and all necessary utensils.

The bedroom has a double bed with fresh linen and is comfortable and very quiet. The bathroom consists of a shower, toilet and sink as well as a washing machine and I provide fresh towels.

The living room, with big windows, make the place bright and sunny. It has a comfortable sofa where you can spend some time relaxing in front of the interactive TV and DVD player. There is Wi-Fi throughout the house (including the roof terrace). Next to the living room is my small library room, with dozens of English books and 100’s of English magazines.

I will leave you with some good tips on what I as a local enjoy doing in Amsterdam!

Have a great stay!

Kind Regards

Ivar

It was very very nice!We had a great weekend! It is a very sweet and cozy apartment. The host "Ivar" gives you very extensive informations about: the apartment, shopping,eating,drinking,museums,supermarket( 24 hours open)...etc... Bicycles are also included ( a few minutes to drive to the city) The Tram-station is also close to the apartment. ( Postjesweg) There you can buy a ticket for the hole day for 7€ and a little. Don´t forget to check in and out ;-) At the end of a day you have the opportunity to have a last drink (email hidden)...maybe 100 meter from the apartment, or on your own balcony. We preferred the (website hidden), we can recommend to stay @ Ivars house! Thanks at this point to Ivar! :-) "like"

This attractive apartment is located in a very charming and safe neighborhood and offers quick access to trams and the Albert Hein market. This 3rd floor walkup was very spacious (even by American standards) and tastefully decorated with plenty of light and a private rooftop deck. The apartment was very clean with a fully stocked kitchen to prepare meals and a very large and comfortable queen size bed. There is a washer but no dryer but a launderette is located just one street over (a 2 minute walk). You are renting this apartment from the actual owner not a management company so the service is both caring and attentive. Ivar was very kind and accomodating and a pleasure to talk with welcoming us with a bottle of wine and fruit upon our arrival. This location was a perfect way to experience the culture of Amsterdam without the crowds and seediness of the city center. Its also located within walking distance to Vondelpark and Rembrantpark which was beautiful. Ivar also loans you 2 bikes to explore this great neighborhood making it an even better value. We met fun and friendly neighbors at the local pubs located at both ends of the street and the famous Restaurant Blauw is a 10 minute walk away. If I lived in Amsterdam this is the neighborhood I would choose to be in. I highly recommend this apartment. You will not be disappointed.

The apartment was quite perfect. There is everything you need for comfort stay in Amsterdam. Ivar and his girlfriend Femke are very great hosts. The apartment includes very beautiful roof terrace and a balcony which can provide very nice views while seating outside taking diner or breakfast and enjoying fresh air. The place itself has enough space to have a rest, cook, sleep and just enjoy life.
Bikes which are included may take you everywhere in Amsterdam.

This was our first experience with AirBnb and we were very lucky.
Ivar's indications were perfect and he was waiting for us down on the street when we arrived.
He gave us all the information about the apt and left us an useful house manual.
The apt was bigger than we thought, and very comfortable.

We had just a little problem with bathroom light, it was very low, so when my lady needed to do her make up, she went crazy ^_^

We used Ivar's bikes all the time, and by bike, the apt is 10 minutes from the center (and other must see points). The neighborhood is very peaceful and definitely you will fall in love with this amazing city.

Communication with Ivar was good, the data to get there very accurate as well as instructions for use of the apartment.
His friend was waiting us to make the checkin, and she was really friendly and we chatted a bit about the place and things to do during your stay.
The place is really comfortable, spacious with a well equipped kitchen and an excellent central heating system. The shower and hot water great too.
If the weather is good, the terrace is a really nice place to spend some time.
It is located near the Vondelpark, and with the bikes can quickly reach the museums area, and few minutes more to the center of Amsterdam.
We had a very pleasant stay and definitely would repeat the experience on a next trip to Amsterdam.
Thanks Ivar and Femke!!

(email hidden) to stay and fantastic host. Ivar's place is located near the center of the city and the apartment is super cozy with its roof terrace. I loved his interior with lots of art pieces displayed. The location has easy access to Leidesplein (the place with cafe, restaurants, entertainment and coffeeshops etc.) by tram, on foot and of course by bike. I'd definitely recommend Ivar's place for people who want to deep dive into the local's living in Amsterdam.
