Jan & Esther are super hosts! We cannot stress enough how fabulous these two are. We weren't able to stay at this listing due to some council issues but Jan & Esther went above and beyond to offer us another apartment that was further out. They offered us a free lunch that their cafe and even drove our bags down to the apartment so we didn't have to worry about them. When arriving at the apartment Esther was extremely accommodating helping with where to visit and how to get there. My family and I really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend Jan & Esther to anyone staying in Amsterdam.

Good communication, reply promptly. Apartment is clean and well equipped too. Staircase up is very challenging but fun especially guest with big luggages.

This was such a lovely space in a beautiful city. Close to everything and beside a canal, the apartment was one of our favorite AirBnB stays ever. The restaurant was delicious and the bedding was great. Our group of 7 stayed here easily. The hosts were kind and attentive- even find our child's blanket and mailing it back to us! Would recommend hands down!
