About This Listing
My apartment is light and cosy.
The three bedrooms are on the second floor, one main bedroom (bed 160x200) and two children bedrooms (bed 90x200).
On the third floor you'll be surprised to come into a sea of light with an open kitchen (incl. dishwasher, microwave, oven, washing machine) with a dining table (6) and sitting area with TV and music (and Wifi). Wooden floor. Doors to rooftop terrace with bamboo plants and flowers. Sun on terrace from dawn till about 18.00 hrs.
No noise from the street, other than now and then a car looking for a parking place and neighbours walking by.
Bathroom with toilet, shower and bath. Because of the stairs (two-three) not really suitable for smaller children.
The neighbourhood is friendly and safe. With a lot of restaurants, shops and terraces (near the waterfront of the Schinkel) and close to the Vondelpark - Gent aan de Schinkel for breakfast, lunch, dinner - Blauwe Theehuis for lunch - Vondeltuin for a nice salad and fingerfood in the outdoors - Anne & Max for great coffee - etc.etc. Enjoy the Vondelpark for a walk and a drink or go there for a run. Lots of food to take-away around the corner.
Supermarket DEEN is very convenient and is also around the corner, open on Sundays 12-18 also.
Tram 2 leaves at Westlandgracht (5 mnts walk) and brings you to the center of Amsterdam (20 mnts) with its musea, concerthall and theatres.
To reach my apartment from Schiphol, take the train (6 every hour) to Amsterdam Lelylaan (7 mnts) and from there take a cab (10 euro). Or you can take the train from Schiphol to trainstation Amsterdam Zuid and catch bus 15.
Amsterdam and its surroundings are best explored by bicycle (there is one bike available for you). The Nieuwe Meer (for a swim) and the Amsterdamse Bos are nearby, take the route along the Schinkel.
To go to the beach, it will take you 45 mnts by train (every hour two trains leave for Zandvoort).
Parking your car in Amsterdam is quite expensive, the best way to come is by public transport.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any more inquieries. Cheerio, Nienke
The entire house is a NON-smoking area.
We had a great time staying in Nikki's flat.
She was very friendly and made us feel very welcome.
The flat is lovely, spacious and clean. The upstairs room is very light and comfortable with a lovely outside space. We spent a long time there! The kitchen has everything you need. I particularly loved the expresso machine.
Thea area is good with some lovely restaurants nearby and 2 min walk from the tram. Line two goes to all major attractions in the city which is very handy.
I strongly recommend Nikki's place.
We had a great stay in the appartment for five nights.
Location perfect being only few minutes from tram line 2 as well as plenty of ammenities close to the flat.
Nienke very helpful and made us feel at home! The flat was very comfortable and included a terrace!
We are a four-members family who has spent four nights in Nienke´s apartment. She has provided us all the necessary explanations to facilitate our stay in Amsterdam. The apartment is a lovely place near the center of the city and has all the necessities. We strongly recommend it.
Nienke was the perfect host. She was very flexible with her time and was very quick in her responses. The apartment was perfect, just like in the pictures. The house had everything we needed and more! Great neighbourhood with access to different shops and restaurants.
Die sehr schöne Wohnung sah aus wie beschrieben. Nienke war eine sehr gute Gastgeberin. Auch eine kurzfristig angekündigte Änderung der Anreisezeit war kein Problem für sie.
Die Wohnung liegt in einer ruhigen und sauberen Gegend. Die nächste Straßenbahnhaltestelle ist nur ein paar Minuten zu Fuß entfernt.
Zusammengefasst: alles bestens.
Our stay in Amsterdam was lovely, much of it thanks to Nienke's home and her welcoming hospitality. The apartment was so nice, well equipped and cozy, that it was more tempting to stay there than go out to the rain…The street is very quiet and you feel like you are in a truly non-touristic Amsterdam. It is nice to walk from there to the center, the park, the museums or De Pijp, but it's a bit far and you can always take a tram that stops close-by.
We recommend this place whole-heartedly.
