-> in the apartment you will find the latest issue of Lonely Planet for both Amsterdam and the Netherlands. There are also several brochures, maps and reduction coupons

I have a detailed map with information of what to do in the neighbourhood. You will also find a lot of brochures about various activities in and outside Amsterdam
-> most of the main attractions are within reasonable walking distance
-> experience Amsterdam like a true citizen and explore 'your' Amsterdam by bike! It's very easy to rent one; in the apartment I have several brochures of rental companies.

-> if you come by car or you want to rent one, there is enough parking availability in front of the apartment but you need to buy a parking ticket. You can also park your car in a garage for only 8 euros per day, just a few minutes driving (or 10 minutes walking) from the apartment. For more information on this parking possibility you can check out (website hidden). Of course I can also advice you some really nice destinations to visit by car!
Other Things to Note
The rate per night is excluding 5,5 % tourist tax, to be paid in cash on arrival.
My neighbours are also my friends, so please:
-> gently close the doors to the garden
-> keep your voice down after 10 pm in the garden; it's a closed compound
-> I know I've got a nice stereo but keep the volume at a reasonable level ;-)
-> don't put garbage outside; across the street you can find an underground rubbish container
We stayed at Sander’s place almost a week. The moment we arrived we were welcomed by him and you felt right away like its your second home. The host is amazing – he offered us some wine and cheese while he showed us around and gave us a lot of good tips and ideas what to do while we visited Amsterdam! The place is very spacious and super clean. Bed is very comfortable and the apartment has a full size kitchen if you’d feel to cook at home. We visited Amsterdam in March so it was a bit cold outside but guess what – there’s a private garden too! So if you’re visiting during spring or summer then its like a jackpot – you could spend time in the garden and chill there. The location is very close to some million-zillion restaurants and bars and about 5 minutes from Dam sqaure with the tram. The apartment is facing to a quiet side of the area and thatswhy there’s no noise coming from the outside. Its a perfect place to stay while in Amstedam!
We had a great time.
Really cool place, well located, very functional and cosy.
Sanders was a great host, he thought about everything we didn't and more.
I sincerely recommend this place and might come back if the opportunity arises.
Great home with everything you need! Contemporary kitchen, living room and bedroom with candles available to light which made it feel homely. The bed was really comfortable too. Just 15mins to centraal station by tram!
8 days at Sander's apartment couldn't be any better!
Comfortable, Clean, organized, got all the equipment that we have needed.
We were 4 friends at Sander's apartment and If we have to describe our experience in one word, it will be: AMAZING!
Sander answerd all our questions and even helped us to organize our last day, what to see and where to go to.
The apartment was very convenient, quite neighborhood, very close to the tram station which we used a lot. all our groceries bought 5 min walking from the apartment.
If we go again to AMS, we definitely come back to Sander's amazing apartment.
Appartamento molto bello e confortevole. Con mio marito ed i miei due figli di 12 e 14 anni abbiamo soggiornato per una settimana nell'appartamento di Sander godendo del confort e del design. Sander è stato gentilissimo con noi accogliendoci con uno spuntino tipicamente olandese e fornendoci un sacco di utili indicazioni turistiche su misura per noi. Consigliato!
I really can recommend this place in Amsterdam!
It is located in a calm area and is still closed to the city. The appartement is very clean, comfortable and tram, supermarket and playgrounds are just a few steps away. Sander is a very kind and helpful landlord and we did have nice conversation. He was very helpful and advised some places where to go. At least there were already some beer for us and juice for the kids (and also cheese) prepared for us, which was great after nearly 8 hours of travelling.... Thank you Sander! We enjoyed it a lot!
The few days at this beautiful apartment were amazing. The apartment is very clean, luxury and quiet, just like the garden. There are supermarkets , trainstations and parks in the near. The Central is only few minutes away and its very easy if you rent a bike. Sander is a very funny and helpfully guy. He helped us a lot for planning our City-Trip and if we had questions he has taken time for us. The next time in Amsterdam I am sure that I take this apartment again.
So thanks again Sander, for this wonderful time in Amsterdam =).
First of all thanks for your curiosity! My name is Sander, since 5 years a lecturer of commercial economics at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam. Before I started this new challenge I have worked for several companies in the sales department.
In between jobs I backbacked through Asia, Central and South America for 1 year, so you can imagine my interest for travelling! I have experienced the most amazing things, but people have always made the difference. In that perspective my long time friends describe me (yes I've asked!) as an adventurous, social, sincere, funny, energetic guy that loves good wine and good food in good company.
After renting out my apartment for several years through different websites I can honestly say that I enjoy hosting people and advising them on what to do while they are here. Since this is the house I personally live in, it's always my goal to achieve a certain connection with every guest in order to trust them with my property. So far this approach has resulted in overall satisfaction and quite some new friends. So let me know what your interests are and you will experience Amsterdam feeling like a local instead of a tourist!
