This comfortable modern apartment is on the second floor of our house in the upcoming neighborhood called De Baarsjes
with a lot of Amsterdamse School architecture.
We offer a quiet apartment with view at the garden, 2 bedrooms with wash stand, a large living room, entrance hall, a fully equipped kitchen, a private toilet and shower, the ap has his own entrance,
You can use the full equipped kitchen (coffee machine, water cooker for tea, a fridge, washing machine etc.
In the large living room there is a 4th bed and a balcony at the garden side and at the front side of the house.
There is WIFI, a take one/leave one book shelf and city guide.
Around the corner there is a good place for breakfast called Bon Giorno.
And lots of small restaurants where you can eat good food for good prices.
Big and small shops are nearby for foodstuffs and all other things you need
There is parking possibility in front of the house, but for longer stay we advice you to go to the Parking called Bos en Lommer at the Leeuwendalersweg 23 b (€ 8,00 a day) and tram 7 takes you back to my house.
My house is located near the city centre: the Dam Square is 5 minutes by tram (line 13 and 14), 20 minutes walking or 5 minutes by bike (rental round the corner). If you choose the other direction take tram 7 and it brings you in 5’ to the Leidseplein (lots of shopping, main theatre, cinemas and of course Paradiso and the Melkweg for music). Line 12 brings you in 5’ to the main museums like Van Gogh Museum, Rijks Museum, Stedelijk Museum and one of the best concert halls of the world, the Concertgebouw for classical music.
I like my neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is upcoming with a multi-culti mix of people, shops, galleries restaurants
and caffe's.. Good trendy places for coffee, lunch, diner and dancing florish (see guidebook). We do not have to leave our hood for an evening out! But if we want to go out (art, clubbing, theatre, parks, cinema) in other parts of town, it is all very near!
I love to welcome you, inform you about our city and hear from you how you experience Amsterdam. We speak English, French and German.
P.S. We also offer a room for 2 persons at the first floor with own entrance and toilet and shower. See www.airbnb.nl/rooms/445660

heleen, thank you for your very lovely words and welcoming. I enjoyed staying in your house. Claudia
Staying at Heleen´s apartment it was a GREAT pleasure, we received a warm welcome and most useful tips, Heleen was very attentive pre and during our visit. We strongly recommned using this address for accesible and comfortable accomadion in central Ámsterdam.
I had a wonderful stay at Heleen's place. The apartment is well located with excellent access via tram/bus/bike to other parts of Amsterdam. There are plenty of local shops nearby to buy groceries, and the neighbourhood has a friendly and relaxed feeling.
The kitchen includes everything you need for cooking and there's adequate space in the apartment - 4 people can be accommodated comfortably.
Highly recommended for anyone visiting Amsterdam.
The flat was absolutely brilliant. It is in a lovely part of town and we couldn't have wished for a better host. Heleen was brilliant getting in touch with us beforehand. She has prepared recommendations for things to do, places to see in the area. We only stayed for a short tradefair visit, but this is so much better than any hotel experience i had in Amsterdam. We even had a fresh dutch matjes breakfast at the local fishmongers the next morning.
really recommended. stay with Heleen and experience Amsterdam from its lovely non tourist side. Many thanks for having us. We couldn't have wished for a better experience using Airbnb the first time. thanks ;-)
It's a lovely place and Heleen is so so nice !
It's so much better to experience staying in a local neighbourhood rather than the city centre to get a real sense of the city. Heleen's apartment is perfect for this: there's a lot to explore locally and with easy access to the city centre.
The apartment is very cool and furnished well. It's also warm in the winter! The beds and social area were all comfortable.
Heleen is a lovely host. She's very friendly and on hand to help, but never at all felt as if she was living on top of us.
We'd definitely stay here again if we return to Amsterdam.
A friend and I spent 6 days, 5 nights in Amsterdam and stayed at Heleen's apartment. She was an AMAZING host! She was there to greet us when we arrived relatively late (21:30 on a Sunday night) and spent about 20 minutes telling us about the local area, sharing maps, advising on best sites to visit, and making sure we understood the nearby public transport. She even had a couple of vouchers from the newspaper for some tourist attractions that helped us save some money.
I very highly recommend staying at one of Heleen's properties for a comfortable experience and a truly world-class host.
Heleen is avery nice person !!! We arrived late in the day but she was very comprehensive with us.
Apartment really clean and beautiful.
We had a great time !
A fantastic appartment, spacious, warm, clean - right in the city center, with plentiful tram access to all the attractions. Heleen and Carl were helpful, warm, thoughtful and generous hosts!!! I can't recommend them enough. The appartment was perfect for families, the beds comfortable and kitchen and bathroom spacious. A wonderful holiday! Thank you Heleen!!! //Mark, Barbara, Francisco, Louis
Five stars! Heleen is an absolutely wonderful host and the apartment is really beautiful. I was running the A'dam marathon and me and two girl friends were there for three nights. The location is perfect for marathoners - a walkable distance to the Olympic stadium and still good for enjoying the city with the centre just a quick tram ride away.
The flat was more than big enough for three of us with a single room perfect for getting a good night's sleep before the run. Well-equipped kitchen and super comfy beds :) Just the right side of shabby-chic (more chic than shabby). Lots of provisions nearby - cafes, bars, grocers and a fab restaurant just round the corner.
Heleen's communication was great. My phone was playing up whilst there but she was v.quick to respond over email. She even left me a bunch of flowers to say congrats!
I'll definitely be contacting Heleen again next time I'm in 'Dam. Highly recommended.
