Interaction with Guests
-> on arrival I will explain everything about the apartment and its surroundings while we drink a cup of coffee or a glas of wine. After all: you should feel welcome in your temporary home!
-> let me know what you and your travel companions are interested in and I will give you a custom made advice on what to do in and around Amsterdam
-> 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
-> during your visit I will be available by mail and phone for any questions
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.
-> the well organised public transport system is just a minute away. Several buses and trams come every 10 to 15 minutes and the bus/tram stop is located around the corner of the apartment
-> 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!
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
First of all thanks for your curiosity! My name is Sander and since 6 years I am lecturing economics at university. Before that 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 a few years 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!
