Corry and Tess keep a beautiful apartment, fully equipped with all the essentials to make you feel at home. They were both there to welcome us on our arrival (with some goodies!), show us around and explain how some of the things worked/were kept. The terrace is a great place to enjoy some food when the sun is out and the open plan of the first floor is very refreshing. Lovely shower, great sized bedrooms and the kitchen is heavenly for those who love to cook! They keep a great music system for all those music lovers like ourselves.
The only nit-pick if we had to ..would be the strength of the wifi, not always great unless you are by the front door where it is kept.
Neighbourhood: Very friendly, the apartment is situated close to a kindergarten and we felt very safe. Shops 5min walk away, there is a Lidl but opposite there is another department store open a little bit later and full of many more goodies!
Transport: The apartment is about 30mins away from the airport including waiting for trains etc, a very easy route. We took the tram from station Lelylaan each day when we wanted to go into town which is about 10mins away walking and on nights out when we were out until 3/4am we returned via the night bus, as long as you plan your routes and know bus times it is perfectly convenient.
We enjoyed being a bit further out as it enabled us to see a bit more of Amsterdam.
We would highly recommend this apartment for anybody wanting a nice chilled get away! It is gorgeous!
La propietaria fue quien nos recibió amablemente y obsequio con un detalle de bienvenida. Nos explicó las particularidades de su casa y nos orientó sobre la ciudad con abundante información, ayudándonos incluso con el Parking de nuestro vehículo. Por todo ello le estamos muy agradecidos.
La casa se ajusta a las descripciones que aparecen en la web. Está en un barrio muy tranquilo y bien comunicado con el centro de la ciudad, con un gran parque en las inmediaciones, muy adecuado para la practica deportiva.
La casa tiene un equipamiento muy completo, que estuvo a nuestra disposición.
Únicamente realizar una advertencia, las escaleras de la vivienda no son adecuadas para personas con movilidad reducida.
We loved Corry and loved her place, which is spacious, well laid out, and filled with beautiful art. Corry kindly met us after 9:30pm, and walked us through, generously providing us with several beverages and snacks, and inviting us to make ourselves at home. Looking at a map, I was afraid we were too far from Central Amsterdam, but we really weren't - the bus service is very good, and when we rented bikes we found it very easy to get in and out of the central area. We loved our stay at Corry's place!
We had a lovely stay at Corry’s place. Everything from the sheets to the coffee to the reclining chair was tasteful and comfortable. She has taken great care to help her visitors feel at home including leaving manuals for her appliances and suggestions for both practical and fun outings in and around Amsterdam.
That was really comfortable and big home. I spent so nice times in this house during my holiday in Holland. Especially terrace is a cool place most times i was having my brunch and dinner on the terrace. Location also was good and close to city centre so i could go everywhere easily. Briefly i am well pleased about staying at this home.
Hi, my name is Corry. I live with my 18 year old daughter Tess.
I am an architect and interested in art, architecture.
I like to dance, go out with friends, run around the Sloterplas, invite friends over for a dinner on the terrace.
We love our place and hope you'll love it too!
