About this listing
If you want to have a real Amsterdam experience, enjoy this beautiful and spacious appartement in the centrally located 'Pijp': this very hip neighborhood is one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant districts of Amsterdam!!
The house is perfectly located, as it's in a quiet street just a minutes walk from plenty of restaurants, bars and other attractions!
Futhermore, not only the house and neighborhood will give you a sense of the local life, I have also made a book with all my favorite restaurants, bars, cafés and clubs located in the 7 best districts of Amsterdam, so you'll really get to 'experience how Amsterdam locals live'!
Ask me about the possible airport pick-up!!
A very typical Amsterdam apartment in a classical Amsterdam house!
You'll have the entire appartement to yourselves!
The apartment is light and spacious!
The fully equiped kitchen has wide opening doors to the comfortable balcony, giving you a special view into the hidden green courtyard! These indoor gardens are typical in Amsterdam. You can choose to have your meal at the large dining room table inside or sitting outside enjoying the weather on the relaxing balcony!
In the centre of the house is a comfortable couch, where you can relax from a long day of sightseeing. And from which you may want to watch one the available dvd's (FYI there is no cable).
As is typical in most 'de Pijp' houses, not much space is used for the bathroom. However, after a long day out, it has the perfect shower to freshen up.
The front of the house has a very cute french balcony where you can open the doors widely and can brilliantly enjoy an afternoon drink in the sun!
The bed holds a unique rolling table, which is great for placing your laptop or books on, or for a romantic breakfast in bed.
Obviously there will be a clean sheets and a set of towels!

Besides that just some common sense rules:
I trust that you will be respectful to the neighbors. Meaning, no crazy slamming of doors, stampedes on the stairs or throwing down cigaret buds into somebody's backyard etc.
I expect you'll handle my apartment and everything in it with care.
Smoking is allowed only outside on the balcony.
If you have any specific questions regarding house rules feel free to contact me...
