I can offer you a beautiful, large room in an attractive house built in
1910 in the green area of Old South. With balcony. Located on the first floor of my apartment.
The room is nicely decorated with a warm southern atmosphere.
Wi-Fi, DVD, TV, fridge, coffee/tea facilities are available.
There is a comfortable double bed and a possibility for an extra aero bed.
The bathroom is decorated in Mexican style, only shared with me
You can use my kitchen at the ground floor for washing dishes and microwave.
I am sorry, no pets allowed. And smoking only on balcony.
The supermarket is at the corner and nice small shops are nearby for everything you need. So you can easily take your breakfast at your balcony.
There are also several good places and terraces nearby for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Especially Gent aan de Schinkel is great for a romantic dinner on the terrace at the canal with a lot different Belgian beers.
Don't forget to visit the patisserie Arti Choc with an extensive selection of nearly 50 types of chocolates and truffles, made with the best ingredients.
Located near the Vondelpark, Concertbuilding and Musea. Only 5
minutes away by tram 2 or 16 from the centre. Nightbuses available.
Hiring a bike is of course the best way to see Amsterdam, like we locals do.
Very close to the lively, multicultural Albert Cuyp streetmarket with delicious Dutch treats, clothes and food.
And the fashionable shops of the Cornelis Schuytstraat and the wealthy P.C. Hooftstraat are within walking distance.
Also nearby is a complete different Amsterdam, the business district, the South Axis, with plenty of modern architecture.
If you want to relax, you can visit the local pool in art deco style. Or go the famous Vondelpark with several nice terraces and restaurants. Enjoy your jogging there, watching people or picknicking.
Not far from my house, you can find the Amsterdam Forest; nice to walk and bike there. You can hire a canoe or kayak and inside the park is a goat-farm with delicious homemade food, a pancake restaurant and an outdoor theatre.
Take a small ferry and bike via Nieuwe Meer (New Lake) back to your accomodation.
I live in this house since 1993 and work as a tv-journalist in Hilversum near Amsterdam.
Check in time can be arranged after consultation with my partner Leo. He can come to my house to let you in during daytime..

Henriette was a very nice host. She and Leo were cordial, helpful and even offered necessary guidance to spend time in Amsterdam.
They kept things orderly, clean and accessible.
One evening, I came back while they're having a private gathering. They took even effort and time to offer a pleasant night with drinks.
They also helped to take a print when I bought a ticket from the net.
Overall, I had a very comfortable and pleasant stay and recommend for people looking for stay in Amsterdam.
Wonderful hospitality, beautiful room and excellent location!
I would recommend Henriette's place to anyone! Easy to get everywhere and she provides lots of help resources for the traveler. Very helpful to have the refrigerator, kettle, hair dryer, and Wifi conveniences. I was there six nights and it felt like home each day as I returned from touring. Henriette and Leo are excellent hosts.
I feel as if I was blessed to be able to book with Henriette! Honestly, everything was better than what I had expected. She and Leo were wonderful hosts, incredibly helpful and just very lovely people.
The room was beautiful, full of light and very cosy as well.
And the location was just prime - there was a grocery store just around the corner and the bus and tram stops were very near too.
Henriette & Léo sont adorables, nous avons passé un agréable week end à Amsterdam et l'accueil dans leur maison a été des plus sympathiques et chaleureux.
Tout est fait pour vous rendre le séjour agréable, on a l'impression d'être un peu chez soi.
La soirée (tardive) s'est terminée autour d'un verre dans leur salon comme si on se connaissaient de longue date, c'était très chouette, ça nous fait plaisir.
Henriette and his partner Leo is very kind&sweet. They are very helpful. They give all the information that you need. The house is comfortable. It is 2 or 3 minutes to Vondelpark. And after walking through that amazing park, you will be in the city center ( museum area >>Museumplein ) within 10 minutes.
The house and the room that you stay has a cozy style. You all have the water heater + tea&caffe'+ heineken beer+waffle offered by Henriette:) There is also a small fridge in the room. There is a market & bakery near by the house. Take the tram number 2 or 16 for the transportation.
Amsterdam is amazing. The weather is cold but the people and the style of living is so hot :))) Enjoy it!!!
Nuestra estancia en casa de Henriette y Leo fué muy (website hidden) vivienda es muy acogedora y nos encantará repetir el año que (website hidden) la recomendamos a todos los que quieran disfrutar de Amsterdam en una zona muy bonita y tranquila.
We had a fantastic time staying at Henriette's apartment! There were three of us (two of us on the bed, one on an air mattress) and we all fit comfortably. Henriette and Leo took great care of us, giving us recommendations of things to do and places to go. The only downside was the location as you're situated slightly outside of the city center (though you are just an easy bike or tram ride away!).
Everything was perfect , Room & Location was everything that I wanted. The room was lovely in a very quite street . I would not hesitate to book this room again if I come back to Amsterdam . Henriette and Leo were very welcoming and were very courteous towards me. Excellent
We had the most wonderful time here. Henriette was a very nice host, always ready to give us advice and helped us to find nice spots to go out to eat, have fun, ... We had a warm welcome here, and Leo and Henriette were very kind to help us with our bags, and there was even little welcoming present.
Public transport was very easy to use, and the stop's just at the end of the street. The room is quite large, with a very comfy bed.
There is a supermarket just around the corner, and the area is very safe and quiet.
I would highly recommend staying with Henriette. It's been a pleasure!
Henriette und Leo waren sehr liebenswerte Gastgeber. Meine Freundinnen und ich haben uns durch die warme und herzliche Art von Henriette rundum wohl und willkommen gefühlt. Ich hätte mir keinen besseren Aufenthalt in Amsterdam vorstellen können.
Ich kann nur jedem weiterempfehlen auch ein paar Tage in diesem netten Haus zu verbringen.
