The Space

We invite you to take few moments to see three good reasons to stay with us as a tourist or business traveller:

(1) Modern spacious 105 sq m apartment in 1930's Dutch design style building with lots of natural light and south east facing balcony. Apartment has all modern facilities to a high standard plus an authentic Dutch touch with oriental artefacts making for a comfortable and luxurious home from home with hosts who are used to having international family and friends visiting so can provide tips and advice to make for an enjoyable stay

(2) One of the best local neighbourhoods (border between Oud Zuid and Scheldebuurt). The apartment is within short walking distance of Scheldestraat and Beethovenstraat two of Amsterdam's most popular local streets for bars, wide variety of restaurants , great shops and choice of grocery stores. The Pijp is also close and is renowned for its day market and nightlife. Plus less than 5 minutes walk is a hidden gem of a park with great children's facilities. You can also walk in 20 - 30 minutes to Vondelpark, Museum quarter and little longer to Joordan. For business and conference travellers the apartment is walking distance from the RAI exhibition centre and WTC business district.

(3) Great transport links for the airport by train and taxi, to explore the city by tram and bike and to get to the rest of Holland by car as it is just 10 minutes drive of the highway. Plus easy and safe street parking for car and bikes. Happy to arrange a great taxi service if required.

Apartment is located on a quiet street in one of Amsterdam’s best residential areas with back facing a private residential courtyard with trees and the front across the road from a small bridge, canal and waterway
•You can walk a short distance to two of Amsterdams best street’s for shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants - Scheldestraat with a wide selection of restaurants and eat places (less than 5 minutes) and Beethovenstraat with many shops, coffee places (around 10 minutes) as well as head towards the Pijp for its nightlife and Albert Cuyp market.
•Furthermore the apartment is less than 5 min walk from Beatrixpark designed by a leading Dutch landscape designer in the 1930’s it is one of city’s best kept secrets (and the cleanest park) which is great for walking, jogging, visiting the must see herb and flower garden and for young children with a kids play area and summer outdoor paddling pool

  • Beautiful apartment in an absolutely beautiful area.
    Very easy & flexible check in, right on time, didn't have to wait at all.
    I was given very helpful directions to everything I'd need nearby (all within walking distance!) and generally how to get around.

    Next time I head to amsterdam this'll definitely be the first place I check to stay in!

  • We found Mani's place very comfortable, clean and pleasant with an easy access to buses and trams. The apartment is in a great location particularly for the people who are going to the RAI for a conference. It is just in 5-10 min walking distance from RAI. Mani was quick in communication before and after booking the place and also were welcoming on our arrival.

    May 2013
  • The place is beautiful and located in the heart of the residential part of the city. The apartment is actually better than the photos itself. We did not get a chance to meet Mani, but his friend gave us a very warm welcome and helped us with all the information. Check-out was very simple and convenient. I would recommend this place to anyone who is considering it.

About
I enjoy using the internet to find great new ways to improve life, building business startups, teaching yoga, playing football, dancing, different cultures, good food (especially Indian, Thai and Italian), visiting different countries, biking around Amsterdam. And spending time with family and friends. Having come to Amsterdam over 10 years ago, started working and discovered and explored the place as any visitor I can recommend Amsterdam and Holland. As I am now travelling more often or staying with my friend I decided to share my space. I wish you an enjoyable stay when you visit my home.
