About This Listing
Enjoy your stay in a light, airy, comfortable, clean room with a great bed!. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and laid back. After all this is Amsterdam. A great place to relax and enjoy a truly unique city.
This neighborhood is called The Pijp, (pronounced pipe) and is quite international. There is a great mixture of styles and attitudes. While the main street is a five minute walk, at this end it's quiet and peaceful.
This is for the single traveler only NO EXCEPTIONS
Amsterdam is perfect for humans, and the Dutch brilliant at providing what you want. The Center of town is where the action is, no doubt. Lots of hotels, clubs and tourists. However The Pijp is close enough to the Center to be convenient, just a 10 minute tram ride, or a 20 minute walk. And by bike it's a breeze.
I live within walking distance of a lovely park, many museums, the cinema, cafe's and a great variety of restaurants.
If you like to shop, The Albert Cuyp Market, our largest outdoor market celebrated its 100th year recently, and is literally just around the corner.
The Heineken Brewery Experience is few minutes walk from here.
The Rembrandtplein where you'll find much of Amsterdam night life is about a 15 minute walk.
You are near to tram & bus lines, which are extensive and offer excellent service.

My stay in Amsterdam was awesome! Although I was exhausted from my Paris trip Sharon understood my situation. She is very knowledgeable about Amsterdam! Besides all the city has to offer, I would recommend seeing the Amsterdam Forest in the southwestern part of Amsterdam, it was the best part of my trip! Renting a bike in Amsterdam was really exciting too! If you do not rent a bike in your time in Amsterdam you are missing out! Thanks for being such a great host!
I couldn't have been happier staying at Sharon's; the room is very comfortable, the house is lovely and well-situated either to wander in De Pijp or get into central Amsterdam via the tram, and Sharon was very kind with her hospitality and advice. Would definitely stay again!
Sharon made me very welcome, she was helpful, informative, knowledgeable, and a great conversationalist, with a healthy, New York style, sense of humour.
Sharon was a very pleasant host; she's also a very interesting lady to talk too. Her place is inviting and handy for reaching the city centre, yet also gives a taste of a 'real' Amsterdam neighbourhood.
Sharon is very nice and helpful host. The place is located at very convenient location ,clean and stylish. The bed is comfortable yet the room is a bit small. There are shelves providing enough space for unpacking your stuffs. It suits for solo traveler who travel light. Very recommended for staying at Sharon's place if you have a chance.
About the Host, Sharon
I'm an ex New Yorker and I have been living in Amsterdam since 2000. I first came here in 1971 and I fell in love with the place. I decided to return one day, and here I am!
I worked for more than ten years as a forensic psychiatric social worker in the NYC prison system. These days I'm retired and get to hang out all day, doing...whatever :-)
I'm fairly well traveled. I admit to having led a very exciting and interesting life. I'm one of the people who brought you the 60's - and I remember most of it. I lived in Greenwich Village in 1963-5 and got to meet and hang out with everybody who was anybody. I was part of the avant-garde, and later became what the media called the underground. I lived on Ibiza in the late 60's early 70's, where I was partners in the second (at the time) vegetarian restaurant in all of Spain, called the Double Duck. My partner wrote a book about it, called Sirens Feast an Edible Odyssey. I'm also a practicing NIchiren Buddhist since 1976 and a member of the SGI.
I look forward to welcoming you to my happy home.
