Our stay here was absolutely perfect! This apartment is so nice. It is spacious and very hip, also in a great neighborhood! The bed is super comfortable. My husband and I both commented on how comfortable it was. This apartment is the perfect place to stay when you are in Amsterdam. It is very nice, very clean and you feel "local"!
We had a great stay. Everything was like shown at the pictures. The location of the appartement was very good. We would definitly stay again.
Kontakten med Clyde och Paul fungerade jättebra. Togs emot av deras trevliga städerska som visade oss runt. Mycket bra information fanns i lägenheten så som restauranger, matvaruaffärer mm. Vi besökte Clyde och Pauls favoritrestaurang en kväll och den kan vi varmt rekommendera.
Lägenheten var ren och snygg och bra utrustad. Det var lätt att ta sig till stan och runt i Amsterdam med både buss och spårvagn. Lägenheten hade utsikt mot en park på framsidan och mot en större innergård på baksidan och på baksidan fanns det även en större balkong.
Det enda som vi vill varna för är det tre branta trapporna upp till lägenheten. Trappor som är vanliga i Amsterdam men som kan vara svåra att gå i om man inte har orken.
Jag och mina två systrar kan varmt rekommendera denna lägenheten och dess värd Clyde och hans vän Paul.
Clyde is THE warmest host we have had. Very caring, personal dedication and care to the entire process and say--excellent experience from zero to finish. Just be mindful of the stairs up on the apartment. It's the same tough climb in most apartments in Amsterdam so you just have to get used to it. Clyde and his friend personally helped with the luggage up the stairs so they made the whole experience smooth :)
We had a great time at this stunning apartment: modernly furnished, overlooking the Westerpark and a spacious balcony facing the quiet inner courtyard. The apartment is at a great location and close to bus/tram stations; a bike rental ist just around the corner and other stores are conveniently located within short walking distance. The place is fully equipped and we were also provided with to extra beds. The communication with Clyde and Paul was always easy and fast, absolutely no problem whatsoever. We felt right at home throughout our stay. I absolutely recommend this place and will definitely stay there again the next time I visit Amsterdam. Thank you for everything!
The appartement was fantastic : good location with the view on the park, a spacious, bright and clean appartement (and quiet). // L'appartement est vraiment chouette : une excellente location avec la vue sur un canal et le parc, un appartement spacieux, lumineux et propre. A recommander.
Clyde was brilliant, really responsive when contacted and helpful in answering all of my questions.
The house was as described and the perfect spot for a stay in Amsterdam.
Will definitely stay again should the opportunity arise.
About the Host, Clyde
Dear guests. My name is Clyde. I hope you like my apartment. I live in the beautiful neighbourhood of Westerpark since 2005, Because I'm out of town regularly, I rent out my apartment. My partner Paul is helping out with reservations.
