★★ Please read the whole description before submitting a reservation request. If you have any questions don't hesitate to send us an inquiry!

The Room:
The room is about 14m2. It has big windows on the street side, and it's one door opens to the open-kitchen/living room space. The room contains a double bed (140 x 200), a wardrobe where you can hang your clothes, a small bedside cabinet, lamp and mirror. When you arrive the room will be clean and fresh bedding and towels will be provided.

The Apartment:
Our two-bedroom apartment is on the ground floor of a quite street, with a private garden at the back. The back bedroom is accessible directly from the entry hall, the second bedroom is on the street side of the house across the living room, where my girlfriend and I sleep. The shower/bathroom is accessible through the living room. The kitchen is open to the living room and fully equipped including oven and microwave, of which you can make free use. At the back lies our garden, where we love to have breakfast in the summer and where you are welcome to relax in the hammock or enjoy the sun.
The apartment is very conveniently accessible, with 5 tram lines and 3 bus lines within 1-4 minute walk that can take you anywhere in the city. A tram or bus ride to the center (Dam Square, Leidseplein etc.) takes 10-20 minutes. Anna Frank's house is a few tram stops away. The lovely Rembrant Park is less than a minute walk away and the smaller Erasmus Park is almost as close.

The Neighborhood

The Neighborhood:
The house is located in a residential neighborhood, on a quiet street. Around the corner (literally) you can find a supermarket, grocers, bakery and convenience stores. There is also a market close by.
Several nice cafe's and restaurants are within a short walking distance from the house, and as the neighborhood is going through a phase of revival it seems another one is opened every week.

  • Amsterdam is a lovely city.
    Yahav has left us a very clean apartment with all the necessary comforts.
    We had a great time. We were able to rent bikes for free and go pretty quickly around Amsterdam.

Hi, I'm Yahav. Together with my girlfriend Deirdre I live in a modest apartment with a spare bedroom. We have now been hosting for over a year, and enjoyed it greatly. Although I've been living a long time in Amsterdam, I seem to like it more with every passing year. Being a foreigner myself, I know what an outsider would love to see and experience. I love to introduce others to my favorite hangouts. Deirdre is a real dutch girl, and can give you the local perspective as well as help you plan trips to many interesting places off the beaten path. From the best restaurants and museums to the most dingy bars and everything in between, we would love to help you experience Amsterdam the way we love to live it!
