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.

I recently stayed at Carolyn's and had an amazing stay! She was so helpful with things to do, maps etc. the room was perfect and the location couldn't have been any better. I would highly recommend staying here. She is a lovely person and next time I visit Amsterdam I will definitely stay at her place again:)
Carolyn est une hôte charmante et (website hidden) chambre et le salle de bain sont très bien entretenues. Nous avons apprécié la possibilité de se faire un café, un cappucino ou une tisane le matin avant de partir ou le soir en rentrant. Son appartement est très bien situé juste à 1 min de Prinsengraft avec des bons petits restaurants et bars juste à côté, à 5 min du musée d'Anne Frank. On peut presque tout faire à pied!

Perfect Host, nice room and good location. Thank you! We will come back
Sehr netter Empfang inklusive vollständiger Einweisung. Es blieben keine Fragen offen.
Höchste Gastfreundschaft, ordentliches Zimmer sauberes Bad.
Alles absolut bestens, würde dafür 100% vergeben.
Danke!! Bis zum nächsten Mal.
Ohne Einschränkungen weiterzuempfehlen, die Lage der Behausung ist in einem sehr schönen Viertel von Amterdam.
Gastvrij ontvangen en lekker geslapen op een superlocatie!
We spent a wonderful weekend in Carolyn's apartment. She welcomed us with open arms and left us complete privacy for the rest of our stay.
The location is perfect, everything is in walking distance.
We'd definitely choose Carolyn's apartment again.
Carolyn is a great host. Nice and clean room in the city centre of Amsterdam. Highly recommended!
This is a brilliant location in the Jordaan area. You are right on the doorstep of everything you would expect from Amsterdam. I was satisfied with the bedroom and the bathroom arrangements as a single person. You can hire a bicycle although I chose to walk the street of Amsterdam even as far as to the Art museums. There are restaurants scattered all over the area so you won't have a problem finding an eating spot. Carolyn is a fantastic host and will offer you suggestions of where to eat as well as other insider tips like the market down the road. She was also kind enough to do my laundry for me - thank you. I will definitely stay here on a return trip to Amsterdam.
Great location, perfect host, interesting and lovely person
