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.
Die Unterkunft von Henriette war super! Henriette hat sich vor der Anreise mit mir in Verbindung gesetzt und mir eine genaue Wegbeschreibung gegeben. So sind wir innerhalb von kürzester Zeit vom Flughafen bei Henriette gewesen. Die Unterkunft hat viel Flair. Durch die günstige Straßenbahnverbindung waren wir auch gleich in der Stadt. Unser Kurzurlaub in Amsterdam war toll, da hat die Unterkunft auch dazu beigetragen. Kann ich nur wärmstens empfehlen!
Wir hatten eine sehr gute Zeit bei Henriette und Leo! Beide sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Zimmer ist groß und nett möbliert. Alles, was wir brauchten, war vorhanden wie beschrieben. Darüber hinaus erwartete uns ein Willkommens-Gutsje.
Sorry to reply so late because it was very busy for me these day. Our landlady is very great and friendly, she provided us the kitchen to cook and gave us lots of desserts when we arrived at her house.I strongly recommend her house if u wanna go to Amsterdam.
We really enjoyed our journey in Amsterdam! Henriette is a really nice and welcoming guest. We felt very good in her house. It is not in the center of Amsterdam so it is very calm in the night. The neighbourhood is quiet. The tram is really close to the house so that you can go everywhere in the city very easily. I keep the adress!!
Très agréable séjour chez Henriette, chambre très propre, très confortable. Henriette et Léo sont chaleureux , prévenants et discrets.
Le quartier est calme, plaisant et très bien situé. Nous reviendrons !
J'ai été très bien accueillie . La chambre est spacieuse avec une bonne literie. Le quartier est trés calme,. Il y a un libre-service à proximité où l'on trouve toutes sortes de choses que l'on peut réchauffer à la maison. On est à 10 mn à pied des musées. Les hôtes sont trés sympas et attentionnés.
Henriette is a great host! The apartment was very charming and spacious. Best location. We particularly enjoyed the interior design and the comfortable bed. All the rooms are also very clean. Overall, you will not find a better spot in terms of accommodations or locations in Amsterdam.
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.
