About This Listing
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.
What a wonderful apartment and what a wonderful time i had staying here. The hosts were so gracious and went above and beyond to make me feel so welcome. They were both a wealth of information and were always keen to help or improve my plans around Amsterdam. I had a great time. I would highly recommend this place to any and all who wish to travel to Amsterdam.
So easy to get to from the airport.
Such a convenient location and such a beautiful city.
You will love this place.
Henriette est une hôte très agréable, disponible et prête à aider en cas de questions ou pour tous besoin de renseignements.Elle met à disposition une chambre spacieuse et confortable dans son appartement. Nous partageons avec elle, la salle de bain et avons accès au micro-onde et à l'évier de sa cuisine. L'appartement est situé tout près du Voldenpark et proche d'une supérette. La quartier est très calme et facile pour se déplacer dans le reste d'Amsterdam, que ce soit à vélo, en bus ou en tram. C'est un bon endroit pour découvrir cette jolie ville et son mode de vie.
Henriette is a great host and a lovely person. She made us feel very welcome and even provided some dutch treats on arrival for us to try. She gave us excellent advice and tips on how to get around Amsterdam, things to do and the best places to eat. The room was very large and comfortable and the balcony was lovely to sit and have dinner and overlook the neighbourhood. The area itself was very quiet and peaceful, but also very easy to access the city by tram or even walking was not too far. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Nuestra experiencia en Amsterdam en la casa de Henriette fue muy buena. El departamento es muy cómodo y totalmente independiente. Es aún mejor de lo que vemos en las fotos! Los anfitriones fueron muy amables y pusieron su casa a nuestra disposición.
La ubicación es muy buena. Pudimos recorrer la cuidad a pie y se encuentra muy cerca del parque vondelpark que está genial.
La experiencia es 100% recomendable
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!
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.
About the Host, 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.
