The Space

EXCELLENT location. 15 - 20 minutes walking from Central Station Amsterdam.
(Please check calendar for availability)
(Also...if you book, you will receive information on getting to my house, etc. on the same page as your booking confirmation - please scroll down!)

My home is in the Jordaan quarter, in the heart of Amsterdam, and one of the most picturesque parts of the city with its historical architecture, canals, and charming views. The Jordaan is known and enjoyed for its eclectic potpourri of shops, cafes, and galleries.

My apartment is a quiet and relaxing oasis, in the center of the best that Amsterdam has to offer. The central location is truly ideal and offers you Amsterdam at your doorstep. Almost all of the sites of Amsterdam are within easy and scenic walking distance. Public transportation is easily accessible, and my home is a 15-minute walk from Amsterdam Central Station.

On Mondays until 13:00 (with Flea Market) and Saturdays until 16:00 (with Farmer's Market), there are outdoor street markets just around the corner from my house, and they shouldn't be missed! Both markets offer interesting wares, some great people-watching, and a chance to experience local life firsthand!

My apartment is located on the top two floors (no elevator/lift) of a quiet 4-story residential building, on a side street of the Prinsengracht canal, one bridge from the Anne Frank house. I offer an upstairs bedroom overlooking an inner courtyard with a super comfortable double bed. The room is suitable for 1 or 2 people. There is also a hall leading into the bedroom with a wardrobe and extra cupboard for your things. The apartment entrance leads directly to the upstairs area where the room is, so when you come and go, you have your privacy.

Rental includes use of the upstairs bedroom and shared bathroom, which I only use for showering. There is also an extra toilet on lower floor. I have bathroom supplies available including a blow-dryer, shampoo/rinse, shower gel, cotton makeup-remover pads, and toothpaste. All linens and towels are provided, of course.

I spend most of my time on the lower floor, so the upstairs bedroom offers you privacy!

There are no kitchen facilities available with the room. There is a hot water cooker in the room to make tea or coffee/hot chocolate, and 'picnic' supplies for you including plastic plates and bowls, silverware, corkscrew, and napkins. I always put a pitcher of water, cups and glasses in room. There are lots of charming cafe's and restaurants for breakfast (Yum+ : Cafe Letting!!), lunch, and dinner directly available in my lovely neighborhood.

There is an outdoor sitting area downstairs on the back side of the apartment with a table and chairs, overlooking the inner courtyard. It is available at anytime, and has sun in the late afternoon...when we have sun!

Flexible check-in and check-out times in consultation.
I would also like to mention that I have a dog, who stays downstairs with me.

  • Carolyn is a wonderful host and we really appreciate her home.
    Carolyn is extremely helpful and she gave us useful suggestions and advice. The house, in the middle of Joordan, is peaceful and silent. The room is clean and very cosy.
    We strongly reccomend this accomodation!

  • Carolyn is a wonderful host. We were late because of a change in the train schedule but she patiently waited for us and helped us take our luggage upstairs. Her place is lovely and we had a great time!

  • Het was onze eerste keer met airbnb en het is ons heel goed bevallen. Carolyn was een top gastvrouw. Ze legde alles heel goed en duidelijk uit en deelde haar ervaringen met ons. De kamer en badkamer waren zeer goed in orde, alles was zeer netjes. En als we iets nodig hadden moesten we het maar vragen, maar alles was eigenlijk voor handen. De ligging was ideaal, alles was op wandelafstand gelegen. We hebben een hele aangename tijd gehad. Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar!

  • Carolyn was an AMAZING host! She was incredibly helpful giving directions, restaurant recs, touring ideas...and the room was absolutely perfect! Beautiful, clean, quiet and Carolyn made me feel really comfortable and like I was in good hands, also provided everything I needed from towels to maps! She is a great woman and wonderful to speak with as well. The apartment is really convenient, really great neighborhood to walk around in and you can get to major sites easily. It was also super close to Amsterdam Central Station which was great since I had a short layover and needed to be close to the airport. Thanks for a great stay! I highly recommend!

  • We loved our stay at Carolyn's house! Not only is her place very centrally located and just steps away from great places to eat and beautiful sights to enjoy, but Carolyn herself is a complete gem! She really goes above and beyond for her guests--for example, she loaned us two Museumkaarts so we were able to visit the Van Gogh Museum for free! And she called the cab company for us when we were having trouble with our cell phones. Like I said, she's fantastic! I highly recommend staying here!

  • IGreat location. Clean and orderly house. Carolyn is very helpful, and I am sure she is a goldmine of information about the city. I would choose it again if in Amsterdam.

  • The stay with Carolyn made much difference for only a visit in Amsterdam. She is such a gentle, nice, intelligent, remarkable woman! It was a great experience at her beautiful and quiet place.

  • Carolyn's place is perfect!

    She's both hospitable but doesn't smother you at all. Carolyn is also very hospitable about leaving bags before and after check-out.

    Also, the staircase up to the room is right at the front door so you really can sneak in and out quietly without feeling like you're disturbing anyone.

    The room, hallways and bathroom are very, very clean and cozy.

    The location is a little bit of a walk from the train station, but it's through some very, very nice neighborhoods.

    I would definitely recommend Carolyn's place to individuals or couples who are looking for a quiet, private place.
