The Space

The apartment building was built in 2003 and is very nice, open with elevators and marble entrance. The garden was recently renovated and is well maintained.

My home is a two room apartment of 69 square metres (742.709 ft²). I live here myself most of the time, so please introduce yourself if you want to stay in my place so I can get an impression of who is coming over.

The apartment consists of the entree, a sleeping room and bathroom with shower and sink. The apartment has a separate toilet and a spacious living room with open kitchen and a Loggia type balcony with big doors on the street side.

The open kitchen has an oven, washing machine, water cooker, Nespresso coffee, grill and all the cooking gear you need for good dinners.

There is a wash machine and dryer and iron equipment.

The apartment is in the so called 'Old West' next to the old centre of Amsterdam. Everything is in walking distance.

For this property a SHORT-STAY-PERMIT is given by the local law enforcement. This means that:
- The apartment and the complex has the appropriate fire measures in place
- Tourist tax is payed for the visitors of this apartment
- Neighbours are aware of your presence
- After booking I will ask you to sign the appartment complex regulations (requirement made by the neighbours). You can read this regulations in house rules ;-)

There are nice bars and restaurants around the corner. I live very near the famous park, the Vondelpark.
There are trams available very near to go to all the directions ( (phone number hidden))

I give Kitesurflessons (IKO certified), so if you are done with the museums, ask about an afternoon kite surfing at one of the Dutch beaches!

Location: City, Central
Features/amenities: Elevator / Lift, Views, Iron/ironing board available , hairdryer

In the apartment is a camping (baby) bed, some basic baby supplies and a Ikea baby seat for feeding and for a third person a bed can be placed in the Loggia.

To be clear:
I live here normally but if you rent it I will stay somewhere else and you will have the place all for yourself. I supply bed linen, a set of towels, but remember it is a good serviced apartment and not a hotel.

Guest Access

The apartment is fully available without any restrictions and for you to use and enjoy.

Interaction with Guests

I like to help out where i can with advise on where to go and what to see and I am available for a meet and greet with a beer when this fits both our schedule.

The Neighborhood

Check out my guide. There are lots of nice bars and restaurents around the corner!

Getting around

There are trams to every corner of the city on the intersection around the corner. Tram 12, 14, 3 and 10.
But I highly recommend to rent a bike in one of the many bike rentals.

  • Fantastic spacious apartment, in a lovely area with easy transport links and plenty of nice cafes and restaurants around.

  • My friend and I had a great time in Sjoerds apartment! The apartment is very nice, clean, big and central! In took us about 10 minutes with tram to get to the city centre. The neighbourhood and the apartment buidling is also very nice. Sjoerd (email hidden), and answers quickly on both email and phone. I highly recommend this apartment!

  • Great apartment in a perfect location. My older parents enjoyed the fact that it was one of the few Amsterdam buildings with a lift!
    The flat was clean and well equipped, and sjoerd was on top of all the details.
    I will gladly stay there next time I go to Amsterdam.

  • We were in Amsterdam for a week and we could not have asked (email hidden) to stay. The apartment was comfortable and had all the amenities. Supermarkets, restaurants, bike rentals and tram stations were all at a walking distance from the apartment. Sjoerd was a very helpful (email hidden). We would definitely recommend the apartment.

    October 2013
  • Sjoerd was the Perfect Host - Not only did he allow me to (email hidden) but he accepted a last minute booking that fit tightly between two other guests. The experience was seamless easy and hassle free! Could not have asked for a better location and home for my short stay in Amsterdam. Will be reaching out to Sjoerd again next time that I'm in the area. Highly recommended!

  • Sjoerd's a very organized host and we had a very pleasant stay at his apartment. We love the location and feel like it's our home away from home. Thank you!

    September 2013
  • Sjoerd - the perfect host! First of all I would like to note the excellent preparation of information materials: instructions, which he sent to us before the arrival, as well as many instructions in the apartment. All this information is very useful and helped us very much. The apartment are fully met our expectations - very comfortable, with an excellent location, with stunning technical equipment. We would advise everyone this apartment.

    Response from Sjoerd:

    thank you olga for you nice review and hope to see you again in the future ;-)

    September 2013
  • Staying at Sjoerd's was absolutely great. The apartment was wonderfully located, comfy and clean. The shower drain problem mentioned in a previous review must've been fixed prior to our arrival, as we had no problems with it at all.
    He sent great directions and instructions and made himself available whenever he was needed. No complaints at all, and would totally recommend his place to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Amsterdam.
    Thanks for everything, Sjoerd!

    September 2013
  • The apartment is very clean and quiet which is what we wanted. The apartment had all the conveniences one would need. The location was excellent - close to grocery stores and the tram lines. Another benefit was the availability of an elevator. Finally, we found the host very accessible.
    We would recommend this apartment without any hesitation.

    September 2013
  • Sjoerd's place is wonderful! It's is comfy, homely, spacious and clean. The apartment is tastefully decorated, and has everything that you will need. The kitchen is fully equipped with an oven and fridge, though there doesn't seem to be a freezer. For someone who was only staying 3 nights, that wasn't an issue!. I was traveling with my mom, and Sjoerd was very helpful and available throughout, although I have never met him. He left was a welcome message on the phone that he has in the apartment, and he is contactable any time using that phone.

    The bed was soft, and so was the pillow, and the sheets were clean and smelled great. The only problem was probably the shower, where the drain kind of gets stuck pretty quickly, so you need to take 'breaks' during the shower for the water to flow out.

    Otherwise, it was a perfectly wonderful stay, thank you so much Sjoerd!!

    Response from Sjoerd:

    The drain flows again ... fixed it! kind regards, Sjoerd

Hi, I just upgraded my appartement in Amsterdam and I am very flexible in renting the place at the moment. I live together with my girlfriend so the apartment is almost always available. Send me your request and we will work it out. I do like to know who is renting my place so tell me something about yourself or have a small description in your profile. Apart from IT Consultancy I am a kitesurf instructor. If you want to get out of the downtown area and learn to kite and kitesurf ..ask me for the possibilities ;-) cheers, Sjoerd
