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 only 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.
I hope to offer you a warm, cosy atmoshere, where you feel welcome and comfortable, with the privacy you need.
I'll be pleased to inform you about the cultural events and hot spots in Amsterdam.
I speak English, German and a some French.
Staying with Henriette and Leo was an absolute pleasure. They are excellent hosts, Friendly, helpful and charming. And the room was an ideal base for our weekend trip to Amsterdam. It's on a beautiful quiet street that is close enough to the center to be easy but out of the tourist path. Everything was neat clean and exactly as advertised. We would stay with Henriette again in a heartbeat.
Henriette is a very nice hoster and her house were so comfortable ! She also gave us some snacks and so sweet ! Her house is not in the city centre but very convenient to get there ! We had a wonderful trip in Amsterdam there :)
Henriette et Léo en bons amstellodamois sont des hôtes remarquables, accueillants et disponibles. Ils nous ont prodigué de précieux conseils au fil du séjour. La chambre qu'ils proposent est très propres et la maison se trouve dans un quartier calme et agréable avec une proximité aux différents transports en commun (bus et tramway).
Leur maison est accessible directement depuis l'aéroport via le bus et la durée du trajet ne dépasse pas les 25 minutes.
C'est une adresse à recommander, un très bon point de chute pour rayonner sur Amsterdam et les alentours.
Merci Henriette et Leo pour ce délicieux séjour sous votre toit.
Henriette was extremely helpful and accommodating for the duration of our stay at her place. Upon arrival she presented us with recommended places to visit, which was very nice. Her place was exactly as listed and pictured, and it was nice coming back after a day of sightseeing to a clean and spacious environment. All in all, our trip to Amsterdam was a wonderful one, no small part in thanks to Henriette and her place!
We came for New Year´s Eve to Amsterdam and had a great stay in Henriette´s place. The room was cozy clean and everything what you need you have it there. Henriette´s hospitality was awesome she is a very nice host and give you a lot of advices and help. We loved the neighborhood and the typical dutch charme the houses are. A supermarket is just around the corner and the public transportation is near by and takes you into city within 15min. Thanks to Henriette for the perfect stay.
Staying at Henriette's house was the best! The house is so beautifull that I wish I could live there always! She is super prepared to receive people and everything that I needed she solved right away. I would recomend her to everyone! The neighborhood is extremely good, easy to get everywhere and with a market nearby! I loved staying there and have nothing bad to say :)
Accueil très chaleureux, nous avons été ravies de découvrir cette belle demeure néerlandaise dans un quartier très agréable et bien desservi par les moyens de transport. Merci a vous Henriette !
I am Henriette, living in Amsterdam since 1983 on several places.
I was born in Eindhoven, in the South of Holland and studied at the University of Nijmegen and Amsterdam, political science and film-science.
Many years I worked as a film/video/performance programmer in theatres.
Since 1990 I am working as a TV journalist and now for many years for a current affairs program.
I love my work. And I really enjoy going to arthouse movies, experimental cinema, music and dance.
Traveling and seeing other cultures makes me happy, as well as meeting my family, eating with friends and biking with my partner.
I already have a B&B since 1999. I like it so much..it enriches my life meeting all kinds of different people.
I have no experience with AirBnB..so I am curious.
