The Space

Feel at home in Amsterdam!

Located right in the center of Amsterdam is the popular Helmers neighbourhood, we offer this renovated privately owned apartment with both nice classical & industrial design. It is close (walking distance) to all the interesting things Amsterdam offers you. Perfect for couples (with a child) or a 3rd person on the couch.

Living in this house gives you a cozy & warm feeling (see photos), a classic atmosphere combined with industrial elements. Once your inside the house, you will notion the peaceful feeling, but when you step out of the door, energy is all around you. It is perfect for couples or 2 friends. There is room for a child or a third person at the big sofa.

If you stay a bit longer and like to cook, the kitchen has everything you need, including a big Italian Boretti stoof.

The apartment has lots of daylight, high ceilings, ensuite bedroom, very convenient badroom (underfloor heating, big bathtub) and a balcony. Everything is new, from the washing machine, to the dishwasher, the floor etc (see photo's).

The apartment is situated close to the Vondelpark (see photos), Museum Square, Jordaan and Leidseplein area, the canals are just 50 meters away, you can see them if you look out of window. This location is a perfect starting point to discover Amsterdam, of course renting a bike or canal boat is always an option but everything is in walking or tram distance.

There are two markets on walking distance, one very affordable daily groceries/fruit/veg flower market on Ten Kate straat and the other is a farmers market/vintage market on Noordermarkt.

We will send you lots of nice restaurants, if you want to cook in the apartment, there is a huge kitch available with all the gear you need (see photo's)

Enjoy Amsterdam and have a look at all the reviews te ensure it meets your needs.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had such a perfect time at Olga and Maartens place. The location is perfect within a close walk to everywhere, a very quite street and a lovely traditional apartment that made us feel like we really were really living in Amsterdam.
    Its the perfect sized apartment with a very comfortable bed and everything we needed during our stay. The recommendations of restaurants was perfect. If you are staying make sure you visit Fraiche it was amazing. We will be back to stay at Olga and Maartens and would recommend it to anyone wanting a real bit of Amsterdam.

  • Olga and Maartens apartment was perfect. Situated just near vondelpark and leidsplein it was easy to get around and not far from the centre. Their area is nicer than the centre in my opinion. Loved the dutch stairs!! Efficient use of space! My boyfriend and I stayed 4 nights, 5 days. Check in times were flexible and had absolutely no bother with anything. The apartment has a modern decor however I loved all the quirky lights and it definitely maintains its original essence with the big windows and tall ceilings with nice cornicing. The balcony out the back in the bedroom was so cute would be even greater in summer! Bathroom had a wet room shower and a big huge bath. I think there was underfloor heating in the bathroom too. Next time im back in Amsterdam im definitely going to hit Olga and Maarten up. If youre heading for a chilled trip with your boyfriend/ girlfriend stay at this place its cool and in a perfect location! We ate out most of the time but theres a lidl just round the corner and they have a nice open plan kitchen/ living space and a big table to dine around.

    Thankyou Olga and Maarten

  • We stayed in the apartment for 2 nights. The apartment is spacious and well equipped, very central (minutes from Leidsplein) and yet in a very quiet street. 3 supermarkets, bakeries and restaurants are within 5 minute walk from the apartment. Communication with Olga and Maarten was excellent before and during the stay and they have provided plenty of useful information regarding the immediate neighborhood and Amsterdam in general. Their next door neighbor Chris provided a lot of useful tips as well. All in all, a very enjoyable experience. Will certainly be glad to come again

  • We really enjoyed the apartment, which is very cozy and pleasant, well equipped and nicely located in a quiet street but very close to the main attractions.
    Olga & Maarten were kind to offer us very good recommendations for restaurants, bars, etc.
    We certainly recommend it and would love to come back!

  • This was our first Airbnb experience and it was better than we could have hoped for. Olga and Maarten's flat is really lovely, very bright and airy with a lovely bathroom, nice balcony to the back and very comfortable bed.

    There is a good stereo system with speakers in the lounge and bedroom, and they thoughtfully provide a cable to connect your phone/ipod.

    Olga and Maarten were excellent hosts. They provided a list of places to visit, and left some beers in the fridge for us, very welcome.

    One thing to bear in mind, the flat is on the second floor, at the top of some very steep stairs. We managed fine with a baby and buggy, but it's worth being aware of.

    Overall, very highly recommended.

  • Maarten was a great host! This place is the exceptional. I liked how spacious it was. Great location. Close to Leidesplein but since its a couple blocks away it was quiet. Plenty of places to eat and a few grocery store options nearby. Maarten was very easy to deal with and responded quickly to all texts/requests/questions.

    I've stayed at a few other places in Amsterdam but this one was the best.

    I read a comment before about the shower and how the water goes all over the floor. I don't agree with that. I've stayed at other Amsterdam places and the washrooms are usually really small... this one is great... its big... and the shower is excellent.

    Good functioning kitchen...

    Fast hi speed internet was also a plus!!!

Within a year we became quite experienced with using AIRBNB. Both renting out our apartment as hiring somebody else's appeals us. Who am I remains a kinda difficult question. I am a music lover, food enthousiast, world traveller and a Firestarter. This means that if you rent our place, we can give you lots of interesting restaurants, bars to have a drink and inspiring places to discover here in Amsterdam. Its lovely, especially now the weather is getting better every day. In my life as marketing professional I try to incorporate social value in everything I do. With a focus on the creative industry (music, fashion, art en tech). The interest in uncovering people’s needs, innovation and creativity in my life make me enjoy my work.
