The Space

Please note: there are 3 bedrooms for rent in this apartment - they are not for rent all at the same time because of limitations forced upon us by the city council..

This great room for two travellers has a double bed and its own bathroom and bathtub. Also it has a lovely terrace. upon request an extra (single) mattrace can be arranged.

You can make use of the kitchen as well as the lounge.
The apartment has many great features:
- private bathtub and a private terrace
- Wireless internet available.
- The area has several supermarkets, cafes, restaurants and small shops: you will be able to find whatever suits your taste!

Public transport is within 100 meters of the apartment with the following trams:

- 17
- Public transport to Schiphol Airport takes about 30 minutes

Location: Very close to Amsterdam City centre in Oud West, near 'the SoHo of Amsterdam: the Jordaan.

Walking distance to popular neighbourhoods:
Dam Square: 20 minutes,
Vondelpark: 5 minutes,

Because I have to be present when you arrive not all dates will be possible but please ask. A discount is possible for longer periods.

Guest Access

the own bedroom, own bathroom. Use of the kitchen (provided you clean after yourself so others do not have to do it for you) and use of the dining area.

Interaction with Guests

It depends if I am there, have time and if the guests want it :-)

The Neighborhood

a few hundred meters out of the very touristy areas like Leidseplein and the Jordaan but still very close and in an area with many nice bars and restaurants as well as shops that have special things to offer.

Getting around

tram lines 3, 7, 12 and 17 are within a hundred meters and several (night) busses. Good connection to the Central Station and to the Airport

  • I stayed for 30 nights with my wife at Willem's. His apartment is an excellent choice, for many reasons; cheap, big, clean, comfortable, quite & safe neighborhood, location is perfect (close to most hot spots), host is totally cooperative and caring.

    The apartment is in the 3rd floor of an ancient traditional dutch house, yet very well maintained. It has 3 bed rooms with their own en suites, each is potentially rented out to a different group of people. 1 small room in the apartment ground level (with the kitchen and the living area) and the other two are one-level up. The stairs are sharply steep, which is not a problem unless you are bringing your luggage up, even worse bringing them down :)

    As for the room with the terrace, it is VERY spacious with enough drawers to properly and decently unpack ALL your stuff. the en suite comes with two taps & showed plus a bath tub as an extra luxury. The sunset scene at the balcony is breath catching! the room has a double bed with its own TV.

    Willem was nice enough to install a lock for the room only to accommodate my request. he also to my surprise bought a BRAND NEW 32" TV for the room, only to satisfy my spoiled need for a modern TV with HDMI socket and USB/RCA/RGB ...etc. He had been all communicative and helping. Thank you A LOT Willem.

    The apartment facilities were great for change. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed; JUST LIKE HOME!

    The living area with two coaches is great for hanging out and meet others from the other 2 rooms. We meet many great and friendly people; the best were Donna & Bill for US with whom we enjoyed 2 unforgettable weeks. Love U guys!

    Nothing to complain about, almost everything was perfect for this amazing vacation. Cleaning the dishes after usage can be an issue sometimes with some careless guests but it is never a serious thing. The dishwasher can be used for that purpose anyway.

    Towels and toilet paper are provided when checking in. but you need to bring a long your shampoo and soap bars.

    The whole experience was amazing. the stay was beyond expectation. Will definitely stay again without doubt.

    Overall score; 9.8/10

  • Willem's place was perfect for our stay! He made it very easy to get the key to the place (since he was not present) and the apartment was in a good location. It had everything we needed and was very comfortable! We really enjoyed the other guests staying in the house as well! I recommend Willem's place to anyone who is looking for a great place to stay in Amsterdam!

  • Great stay in a very good neighborhood in Amsterdam, with market and cafe close. The room with ensuite was big and comfortable, exactly like in the photos. The trams are very close to the apartment and they can take you to several places. Or you can do it easily on foot.
    I didn’t use the kitchen (it was downstairs), but it was allowed to. The only negative point was the staircase. It was very tight and steep, and the room was in the highest level. But it seems all apartments in Amsterdam are like that.
    Overall, I’d stay at Willem’s apartment again.

  • Easy communicating prior to arrival, and right up to meeting his friend to collect the keys.
    Lovely big room, meaning you can unpack properly, and there's drawers and hangers if you were to stay for longer. Big ensuite, big sunny deck attached that got lots of afternoon and evening sun.
    Great location it was about 20min walk to the main shopping area.

    Existing flat mate/s are good company and easy to spend time with.

    Only downside was very steep staircases to lug a 20kg bag if you were on your own, and learnt the hard way not to wear socks on them!

  • Willem went out of his way to accommodate us and let us have an early check-in after a long flight.
    Great spot in a lovely neighborhood. Room with en-suite was really comfortable and nice; exactly like in the photos.
    Thank you very much Willem for a lovely stay!

  • The stay at Willem's place was very good. The location is perfect, near the city center and really convenient for the airport. The apartment has been recently renovated, both the room and the living room are very nice. Could have been slightly more clean, but in the end was more then ok!

    Overall: Recommended!

  • We had a great stay at Willemstad apartment. We had a large room with a terrace and ensuite.
    We will stay here again when we are next in Amsterdam as it's a perfect location.
    We liked meeting the other people who were also staying at your place.
    Thanks Willem.

  • We had a lovely stay. We didn't see much of Willem, but what we did see of him he was a gentleman, he also had everything organised for our arrival, and kept in touch on the lead up to our arrival. The accommodation was excellent, we were fortunate enough to get the room with a balcony, but all the rooms looked great. The stairs are steep but that was part of the experience, but beware if you are not fit. The kitchen was well equipped, although we ate out most of the time. Better than a hotel as you get to see what the inside of a real dutch house looks like. I would book again.

  • Ok, here's my review with details.
    First of all Willem is a great host. Although we didn't meet in person he showed a lot of concern about our comfort. The same day as we asked for a hairdryer he brought us a new one. There were no problems with check in and check out.
    Location is super cool! Vondelpark and Museum square are close, wine shop just across the road, many interesting shops and nice cafes all around the house.
    Private bathroom and a balcony are very pleasant bonuses!
    The apartment has 3 rooms for rent and no supervisor, so it was like a small homey guest house. We became friends with neighbors and spent great time at dinner.
    Stairs are extremely steep and it can be a real problem for someone with a large case. My friend really struggled to climb up and down as she had a heavy luggage.
    The room is nice with everything you need in it.
    I was confused with a smell of dampness, but this may be a special thing about Holland in winter, and moreover I have a super sharp sense of smell.
    There were empty boxes in a clothes-press but we didn't use them as they were unclean.
    A bed mattress is big but doesn't fit its support - edges are floating in the air. And for me it was too soft.
    It would be good to have some hooks in a bathroom.
    On the whole we enjoyed our stay as there were more benefits than disadvantages.
