Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Clyde but the apartment was fantastic. Perfect location for our needs. It was quiet at night time and had all the facilities we needed. We had to change our arrival plans at the last minute and Clyde accommodated this with ease.
Would definitely stay here again.
Clyde gave us a very warm welcome and showed us everything in his apartment. It is very cosy and tasteful equipped with everything you need. The balcony in the sun is great -the sun shining for the whole weekend, Clyde has also well organized :-) -and the location of the apartment, of course, perfect for Amsterdam visitors. We enjoyed those 3 days all round and would like to come back again! Bedankt voor alles, Mr. Clyde! Warm greetings of the 3 ladies from the North Sea beach.
Great stay and good communication. Perfect for 2-4 persons. Very nice apartment with great view over the park. In addition also a nice balcony for the sunny days.
This place is AMAZING! From the amenities to the view to the neighborhood. We couldn't have picked a better place.
Clyde had the place cleaned before we arrived which for two guys coming from staying in hostels for 2 weeks was Heaven. Not only was it clean but there were also recommendations for nearby restaurants and maps around town. If you're looking for a place that's not dead center in the craziness of the city but gives you the Amsterdam feel this is the perfect spot.
A very fun and well put together apartment. Beautiful decoration. The kitchen and the beautiful balcony were very useful to us.
Clyde is a warm host and a real pro. Overall a very good first experience with airbnb.
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.
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.
I am a teacher in Amsterdam and maybe in the future I want to start a bed & breakfast. I hope you have a pleasant stay in Amsterdam!
