Welcome to my serene oasis in the lovely Jordaan area. I have completely renovated it and turned it into an airy split-level apartment. Whether you’re on business or traveling, you can enjoy your own peaceful haven in the middle of bustling Amsterdam.
The split-level apartment is located on the 2nd floor of a 3 floor apartment block and has 1 bedroom available for 2 guests.
The bedroom has a double bed with fine linen and comfortable pillows, towels are also provided.There are 2 toilets and a luxurious walk-in rain shower.
Kitchen is new and fully equipped to assure a comfortable stay. I enjoy cooking myself so feel free to use any utensils, cereal, herbs or ingredients that you need to prepare that lavish haute-cuisine meal, or to unwrap a Big Mac burger.
You’ll have a good supply of nice coffee too.
There is floor heating throughout so a comfortable temperature is maintained.
High speed internet that will satisfy your broadband needs is available and access code will be (website hidden) has all international channels and movie channels.
The apartment is nicely located in the Jordaan. From here you can explore the canals, visit the many museums or the Anne-Frank house, go shopping in de negen straatjes(the nine streets). Bike rental is just across the street and canal boat tours are a couple of minutes away. Stroll back home, relax,have a nice coffee(espresso machine in the kitchen) and continue your Amsterdam adventure.
Don’t feel like doing anything? Then just have a lazy day at home, watch a movie, have a nice glass of wine on the balcony and look at the bikes that pass by.
Got some chef’s inspiration? Stroll over to the (biological or regular) market, get those ingredients and let yourself go in the fully equipped kitchen. In case your experiment didn’t work out very well, just go and see one of the many restaurants nearby.
By plane: Bus 197 conveniently takes you from the airport to its end-station across the street in 35 minutes. No need to change, just sit back, relax and let the bus take you there .
By car: the best is to park your car in one of the park ’n ride parking parkings(€8,- per 24 hours including public transport tickets) and take the bus to the apartment.
By train: from central station you can take a tram or a bus to the apartment. In case your luggage is not too heavy it’s about a nice 25 minute walk via the canal area.
Let me know how you plan to arrive and I’ll guide you through it. Within reason the check-in/check-out times can be flexible.
I’m am easy going person and am sure we are all responsible adults but nevertheless some house rules:
Please; no pets,no parties, no smoking and be cautious with your shoes. The apartment has a poly-urethane coating floor with floor heating, so it’s very comfortable to walk without shoes. No other parties are allowed to stay in the apartment without my prior permission.
Bear in mind that your bedroom door is a sliding door.
There are some bottles with drinks available so feel free to pour yourself a nice glass. If you finish a bottle let me know or just replace it with a new one.
If glasses break, don’t worry. I sometimes drop a glass too, just let me know if I should replace something.
The apartment is in a residential building and I have a very good relationship with my neighbors. Please be sensible.
There will be a booklet available with instructions about the appliances.
The house keys are coded keys, please don't loose them since they are quite expensive to replace them. In case that the apartment is left in a very unclean state, I will have to deduct the extra cleaning costs from the deposit.
Above all: Enjoy your stay!
Diego is a perfect host,he thinks about everything you need before you come ,the house is very beautiful,clean,,close to the market and cafes and 10 min walk to the center,we recommend this joyful&peaceful three floor apartment (we are always staying here when we come to Amsterdam) Thank you Diego!
It was a great experience. Diego is a very kind and helpful host. Location of the house was perfect walking distance to attractions. House is very neat and diego's spare room has a closet that you can put your stuff. Next time for sure!
Very good host and a comfortable, modern and convenient property accurately described.
Diego's apartment in Jordaan was in an ideal location for our trip to Amsterdam. It was very easy to get there from the airport by bus and close proximity to the transportation as well as walking distance to most sites in Amsterdam. The apartment was clean, comfortable and modern with everything the two of us needed. Diego was the perfect host, he provided staples for us and spent time explaining the the area, ideas for places to eat and things to do. The enclosed patio overlooking the canal, was a plus as the Airbnb listing didn't really highlight what a great view of the canal there was.
Diego was a fantastic host. He welcomed us with a very thorough tour and explanation of the house features. He was very responsive to our questions and helped give us an overview of Amsterdam. I would stay here again.
Diego is a perfect host :) he is very helpful. We have stayed this apartment a few times and we're happy there. It's location is perfect and very clean apartment. Thanks for everything!
Hello, I’m Diego. I have been living abroad for a couple of years but am born and raised in Amsterdam.
I know the city quite well and tend to visit cultural events whenever I have a chance. I’m more than happy to give you tips about the city. I love to meet new people and even though I will be away some of the time, I’ll make sure you will enjoy your stay and where possible meet you in person.
Since I am on the road quite a lot I understand very well how important it is to feel at home when you’re away from home.
When I’m not working I enjoy to sail around the canals with friends, meet people or spend time doing something creative. One of my old passions is cooking and a recent passion is woodworking, though I tend to neglect these hobbies whenever it is sunny or there is some interesting event going on.
Due to the nature of the aviation industry my schedules sometimes change but I make sure that this will never have an effect on your stay. I will respond as soon as I can but from time to time I could be in the air or at some place with a bad internet connection.
