I would love to let you stay in my lovely cosy apartment when i'm not around. I'm sure you will have a perfect time in my place and the area where I live in. You will find my apartment in the area Westerpark, 2 minutes walking from a very nice park with the same name.
Westerpark is a young and lively area, just 5 minutes from the famous Jordaan, 10 mins from Central Station and the rest of the centre of the city. The Westerpark is 2 minutes walk, and is great for a walk, jogging, picknick or other outdoor activities during the day. There are also a lots of restaurants, bars and theaters all based in and around the historic Westergasfabriek (former gas factory). Public transport is widely available and in walking distance, bike rentals closely.

We had an amazing stay at Jetty's place. The apartment is super clean, very organized, tastefully decorated and with everything you need for a cozy stay.
We appreciated that the apartment is in a residential neighborhood—away from the touristy parts of Amsterdam but still close enough to walk to the city center or get there by tram or bus.
Jetty is an absolutely lovely and caring host. All the time she was very available for us. She let us feel at home and and always made sure we are comfortable.
So to sum it all up - highly recommended!!!
So much nicer than a hotel room. Cozy, artfully-decorated little place. Jetty really made me feel welcome and at-home. Great recommendations too - who can argue with "best apple pie in Amsterdam"? Even provided a bike to get around the lovely park nearby and fun neighborhoods around the city. This is easily the nicest place I've stayed in Amsterdam. Great host! Thanks!
- Goeie ontvangst door Jetty
- Handig kunnen gebruikmaken van haar reisgids amsterdam
- Proper appartement
- Alles op wandelafstand
Aanrader ! :)
Jetty was a kind and gracious host - was always in contact to pick up and drop off keys, and allowed me to use her bike which was FANTASTIC. Would definitely recommend staying at hers!
Jetty's apartment was warm and cosy, just as advertised. We felt at home as soon as we walked through the door. It was also extremely clean and tidy, without feeling like you couldn't touch anything! We felt the apartment was the perfect size for two, and we especially loved the living room. Also, a very comfy bed! We thought the location was perfect - it is much quieter than central Amsterdam, which suited us down to the ground, and it was nice to be so close to Westerpark. Try Pacific Park restaurant there!!!! The flat is literally outside a bus stop which takes about 10mins to get to Central Station, or it is about a 30min walk, so although it is barely any distance from town it feels like a world away. Amenities were also close by, and Jetty sent us a very comprehensive lost of emergency numbers and instructions for wifi/facilites, as well as tips on where to go an how to get there. And, to top it all off, she left us a bottle of Prosecco and some sweets to welcome us!!! In our opinion, everyone should stay at Jetty's (though it may get a little crowded!). It really made our holiday, to have this to come back to.
We had an excellent stay at Jettys place! The apartment was great and in a nice neighborhood undiscovered by tourist crowds yet still within walking distance to many sights. Also, there are very good connections with public transportation from there if your feet get tired. Jetty was a nice, welcoming host and her tips for the neighborhood and upcoming events were spot on!
