In the heart of the city, in a surprisingly peaceful and green neighbourhood lies this gorgeous, spacious apartment, 90 square metres (=approximately 970 square feet). Built in 1886, the apartment has been completely renovated up to modern standards, with respect for the historical details, just this year. The whole house is an official Monument. The unique combination of old school charm and 21st centrury comfort in this apartment will please you.
The apartment has a modern kitchen, cable television (featuring over 200 major international stations), fast wifi, jacuzzi, washing machine and dryer. It has a marvelous view on the Amsterdam Royal Zoo and lies in a street with several cafe's and restaurants, which offer a wide range of options for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
I will be happy to point you to places of interest. Withing walking distance from the apartment lie the Hortus Botanicus, the Jewish Historical Museum, the Amsterdam Hermitage Museum, the Rembrant House, the National Maritime Museum, the Opera, the Red Light District, and many more points of interest.
Famous areas nearby for nightlife are popular Rembrandtplein and trendy Nieuwmarkt. You'll find more quiet and upmarket options along the Amstel River.
Closeby options for kids: the Zoo and its playgrounds, the 'kids paradise' TunFun, and Nemo Science Museum for Children.
Tram and subway are nearby. From Amsterdam Central Station, tram 9 will take you to 100 metres from this apartment (get off at stop "Zoo").
Also, since Amsterdam is the world's biking capital, bikes may be the fastest and most flexible way to get around. I will be happy to point you towards several close by bike rental places.
i don't have many rules. The apartment is set up in such a way that I do not need to have many rules. You can smoke on the ballcony, which is completely rain free.
I have done many home swaps with my own apartment, where I live, so I am very used to acepting guests and I have severla maps and other information of interesteting things in the neighborhood, bike rentals, etc.
We had an excellent time in Dorine's house, the best place to stay in Ámsterdam. Well located, beautiful and perfect for a group of 4-6 people.
We had a great stay in Dorines apartment in Amsterdam.
The apartment is well situated being close to the centre and within walking distance of many of the sites. It is comfortable, spacious and well equipped.
6 of us stayed and there was plenty of space for us all.
We particularly liked the sunny balcony looking over towards the zoo.
The area is quiet and feels very safe.
Check in and out was very easy and Dorine and her mother made us welcome.
The apartment was excellent - large, clean, bright and peaceful. It's also in a great location, not far from the centre. Dorine wasn't there but he's mother was - she showed up around and we were in no doubt that we could ask for help if we needed it.
Thanks, Dorine, for helping to make our time in Amsterdam enjoyable. It's always peace of mind to know you have somewhere clean and peaceful as your base.
Dorine verwelkomde ons hartelijk en legde goed uit wat het huis te bieden heeft.
Beautiful apartment, spacious and centrally located. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.
Really a nice apartment!
Close to the Amsterdam Centrum, 10' walking, and a quite surrounding.
Dorin was always available when we needed, which is very helpful.
Looking forward to come back to such a "gezellig" city.

I am a tax lawyer, living in Amsterdam with my two daughters Florence and Josephine. Have just incorporated my own tax advisory firm ((website hidden)). Love to drink wine, play tennis, cook, hang out with my friends. I have studied at the University of Amsterdam and know the city by heart.
I have done a fair amount of home swaps and discovered AirBNB when I went on a biking holiday and wanted to spend a few days in Copenhagen.
The apartment that I rent out is filled with American and Uk literature.
My most favourite city is New York, but I also love Helsinki and Barcelona.
