The hermitage Amsterdam museum is only 400 meters away and a few of the famous Amsterdam bridges over the canals are exactly in this area too.
The regular supermarket which is open till 22.00 hrs and a very nice biological supermarket are both within 25 meters of the doorstep.

Interaction with Guests
The Guests have total privacy.
I took the freedom to copy the AirBNB recommendations for travellers:
Please respect the space you are in and treat the dwelling as if it were your own home. Be considerate & respectful. Please, No smoking inside the apartment (of course yes on terrace).
Of course, you can invite friends over but it is not allowed to let them sleep over. Parties or pets are not allowed. Rental is calculated accordingly to the number of occupants.
Thanks a lot and enjoy your stay in beautiful Amsterdam.
Our host made us feel welcome by giving advice about the area re restaurants, sights, maps. The location was perfect for sightseeing. Could walk to Central Station. Public transport available. A taxi rank on the corner. A supermarket next door. Rembrandt Museum next door, a highlight.
Apartment very spacious,fully equipped Kitchen. Excellent heating. We were very comfortable . Would absolutely recommend.
This place is by far one of the best I've stayed with using airbnb. Francois was very helpful in answering questions about his house, the location and the city. A friend of his let us into the house, which is even better than what is shown in the pictures, it is large, with lots of light and fantastically decorated. The location is amazing as you're on a subway line as well as within 30 minutes walking distance to anything you may want to visit (Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank house, train station...) and within 5-10 minutes you have plenty of restaurants, bars and shops.
Great place in a great location. Photos are updated so what you see is what you get (and it's great). Unfortunately, we did not meet Francois since he was on a business trip, but his neighbour met us and was available during our stay.
The bottom line - if you are 3-4 people looking to stay in a place that will make you feel like home, this is the place for you.
François absent le jour de notre arrivée, nous avons été très bien accueilli par son ami et voisin Robert. Dans cet appartement, tout est fait pour que l'on se sente à l'aise et ce fut le cas. L'appartement est chaleureux, spacieux, propre avec une grande salle de bain et des WC indépendants. La literie est très confortable.
Quartier facile d'accès car à peine 20 minutes à pied de la gare. Les nuits y sont calmes. Le centre ville est très proche.
Excellente première expérience avec Airbnb.
Un logement à recommander sans problème.
Great bright and amazing apartment, and the location excellent everything is in walking distance.
This was our first airbnb experience and we loved it.
Apartment was clean and everything as expected. Did not get the pleasure of meeting Frasciscus, but his neighbor meet us on arrival very friendly. Before arrival we had very good communication with Frasciscus.
Great market in the Street, and supermarket across the street.
We highly recommend this apartment we where 4 traveling together.
Having traveled to seven countries throughout Scandinavia and Europe in the past month, this was our most enjoyable and cozy. Francois has done a marvelous job of furnishing his penthouse with the most imaginative, primitive and striking objects d'art imaginable. We were right at home. And what a view from the terrace, overlooking the housetops of the city below. Bright, open windows lined one wall of the penthouse, making the place warm and lovely. We didn't want to leave.
El apartamento está en una zona tranquila, en frente del mercado y con supermercado y bares/restaurantes cerca. Bien comunicado por el tranvía, aunque no hace falta porque esta a apenas 5 minutos del centro.
El apartamento estaba limpio, bien equipado, y muy espacioso. Tal y como viene en las fotos
Aunque Franciscus no pudo recibirnos, su vecino Robert hizo de anfitrión y nos recibió en su casa muy bien, dándonos toda clase de explicaciones e indicaciones
Estuvimos muy cómodos y tuvimos tiempo de disfrutar todos los rincones de la ciudad... aunque nos hizo bastante mal tiempo :)
Aun así muchas gracias por todo. MUY recomendable.
un saludo y hasta la próxima!!

About the Host, Franciscus (François)
I live in the great city of Amsterdam since January 1996. I am carrying a Belgian passport and working for an Irish multi-national company. I love travelling (I have a love-hate relation with travelling) and have been around on this planet....for work alone already to over 70 countries. Next to travelling I love jogging, yoga (ashtanga) and exercising meditation. And of course ...just being home in Amsterdam.... great fun !!
Please, just let me know if you need more information and I look forward to meeting and to hosting you,
