Very easy connected to tram and bus stop (2 minute walk).
You can park infront of the house, but because it's centrally location, not cheap. Cheap parking place easy to find and connect to tram.

Other Things to Note
I also have a day job so please take into account the agreed time of arrival.
Normal common sense rules.
People that visit Amsterdam can do a lot of touristic things. There is also a lot of nightlife. So if you stay with me there is no problem with going out in the night time, but don't make unnecessary loud noises. In the night time or in the morning.
After booking, Airbnb sends my full adress. After that I'll send you a e-mail to your private mail, for verification. Also will send direction to the house.
Please don't ring the doors of the neighbours.
Please turn the light off when you don't use them.
Maximum 2 people.
No Check-In's after 22:00 hrs
As advertised! Nice quiet area, and close to the centre of the city. Marc provided me with all the essentials. Just keep in mind that there is no washing machine and you will need to go elsewhere to wash your clothes. Only a minor inconvenience.
Marc was a great host that helped me out with anything I needed, and made sure I had my privacy. So overall, a great experience!
Marc was an incredible host. He is very welcoming and oriented us to the apartment to make sure we knew where everything was. He gave us suggestions for food and also accommodated our late arrival.
la chambre correspond exactement à la description. le quartier est magnifique, pres du vondelpark, et bien desservi en transport en commun. Marc est accueillant et très sympathique!
idéal pour une personne ou un couple .
Marc is a wonderful host , and I had an excellent stay at his place. If you want peace, quiet, and convenience, this is your best choice. Although not in the town center, you can easily get there in a few minutes by tram. The room is small but cosy, the double bed very comfortable. The only thing to bear in mind is that the shower does not have a curtain, so water tends to spill out but you will get used to it. Embrace Marc's hospitality. It is very special.
The room was small but everything that two students travelling could wish for. There was a fridge, kettle with tea and coffee, a microwave and WiFi.
Marc was a fantastic host, we only talked to him on the day that we arrived but he was friendly and willing to help with whatever we needed.
I would highly recommend this apartment for anyone wishing to experience an authentic Amsterdam neighbourhood.
Tram line 17 runs very close to the apartment and makes getting to the centre very easy. There are also plenty of fantastic bars and restaurants in the area.
Marc gave great directions to the apartment which was in between 2 tram lines making it very easy to get around. The room had everything I needed including a comfy bed next to a window so you could see the sky. I had a great time exploring the neighbourhood, Oud West, which has some hidden gems. Would definitely book again.
