About This Listing
A typical '30 Amsterdam appartment on the ground floor, overseeing a canal, 10 minutes from the Jordaan and city centre. My neighbourhood, the Baarsjes, is upcoming and very hip! There is a garden and the whole appartment has a brand new interior with a lot of original elements.
The neighbourhood is very lively, but quiet at night. There is public transport within walking distance. Bikes can be arranged. The place is overseeing the canal and is very green.
The neighbours are very friendly and the garden has a veranda. You can cook meals in the new kitchen. There is a big fridge in the garden house if you want to store more than a few beers or wine. The housecat only comes by to eat, she lives outside most of the times. The house is always cleaned before your arrival. Smoking is alowed in the garden, where thereis a roof so you won't get wet when it rains (and it does rain occasionally..;))
Amsterdam has a lot of cool things to see and do. I can help you to find out what is the most fantastic and chill things there are to see and do.
I am back since the 2nd of July from a half year Aruba. I brought back a Caribbean chill and laidback atmosphere besides a very very brown skin. The boat is up and running from August 2013. If I am free I will be your captain. I also have a friend that can take you on the canals. The fees depend on how long you want to go and how far. The boat can also go to De Zaanse Schans or on 't IJ.
Hope to see you soon,
You will have the whole house to yourself in the period between 29th August and the 11th of September 2014. We're of to la douce France in that period.
Interaction with Guests
We are there if you need us. There is always someone that can help out. If you need to be on your own that is no problem at all. Privacy is there too!
The neighbourhood is safe, very relaxed and at night very quiet. You won't believe that you are so close to the liveliness of rural Amsterdam. The neighbours are very friendly and helpful if you need something. Everyone knows eachother so you won't feel a stranger here.
Tram and bus are superclose. You can walk to dam square in 22 minutes, believe me I tested it. Besides from that, you can rent a bike from me for just 5 euro a day, but be sure to lock it to something, or else they might get stolen.
Other Things to Note
We have the housecat Minou, She loves to come sit in your lap and is supersweet. Most of the time she spends on the couch or outside, but if you allow her she will come and stay on the bed. The room can be closed of so if you don't like that you can prevent it by closing them
Behave like you would do at your own place. The houses were built in the 1930's, so they are sometimes a little bit noisy, although I have never had a complaint of a guest so far.
Damiaan and Marloes place is really nice! Very clean and cosy with the small garden.. Also a lovely location with water right outside in front of the building!
Damiaan was very helpfull with information upon our arrival and he also has some very friendly neighbours who are willing to help if he is not home when you arrive.
My best recommendations! :)
Great accommodations in a quiet location so close to the tram station, minutes from the action of the city. Cozy, comfy apartment and lovely canal just outside the door. Damiaan was away, but kept in close contact and was most helpful throughout our visit. Minou, his cat was a delightful companion and made us feel right at home. Comfortable, pretty apartment with a nice garden and bicycles to rent.
The reservation was canceled 35 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Damiaan est un hôte très agréable qui vous met très vite à l'aise! T'appartement est propre, le lit confortable et la jardin privé très agréable. Damiaan m'a proposé de venir avec lui sur son bateau et nous avons fait une ballade a travers les canaux avec un passage en dehors de la ville. Une réelle expérience locale! Sa femme Marloes parle assez bien français et les deux parlent très bien anglais! Une adresse que je vous recommande surtout que le quartier est calme tout en étant proche des quartiers plus vivants de la ville!
Everything from the start was perfect! This beautiful apartment felt like home all the time. Made us think if only we could have a place like this :) Damiaan and Marloes are really sweet and made us feel welcomed. We could use their bikes so we experienced Amsterdam the real way. The location is perfect, just next to a beautiful canal and really close to everything. And the back garden , omg !! :)) Thank you guys for everything !
Damiaan and his wife are very friendly, open-hearted and helpful persons. We enjoyed a relaxed boat tour with them. Their app is clean and tidy and it accorded with the description. There was no problem to share the app with them because they were not there. It was good that we could use the kitchen and we could also sit in the garden which was very nice because the surroundings are so quiet. Furthermore they promptly furnished us two bikes which we could perfectly use to reach the sights.
This was our first experience with AirBnB and we are very satisfied. Damiaan and Marloes are very good hosts and it was a pleasure to stay with them.
i stayed 3 nights and almost 4 days and felt like being at home which is what i was looking for. so simple but nothing is missing, so pleasant and useful in every detail. the cat is the most greatest accompany, who is asking no special care but open to give. everything is perfect clean, calm, comfortable, nice and tasteful decorated with a very nice environment, very typically an A'dam house.
besides the house and the environment i need to tell the well care of Damiaan. even though i could not have the chance to meet him personally, he was always close what if i would have needed his support. he made also a surprise by providing his bike, a typical A'dam bikes. it was so helpful. for me, there is no other option to stay at A'dam. enjoy your stay.
About the Host, Damiaan
My name is Damiaan. You can also call me David, to make it easy on you. I am 39 years old and I have been living in Amsterdam since 2010. Since last year I discovered Airbnb. Using this, I have been able to share my lovely appartement with people all over the world.
I love Amsterdam! I love life and sharing life with others. My app is one of the most beautiful places in the world. You'll see through the pictures how nice it is. But come and have a look for yourself. You won't be disappointed. The app is situated very close to the center, in the upcoming quarter named De Baarsjes. It is very close to everything you need in this rural city. It is also very quiet en superclean. It has every comfort it needs to give you the most lovely expercience you want from visiting here. I do everything to make a good host. I can pick you up from airport or train station. I can arrange bikes, the best way to get around. And then there is De Geus, a 20 foot steel boat, that can give you an even more authentic vantage point of this ancient city build on wooden poles. Water runs through the veins of the Dutch people, so jump on De Geus and don't forget your camera!
I have a very open mind. I don't judge people by their beliefs or how they look. Everyone is welcome here. You can do whatever you want, as long as you leave the place as it was before you came in, so the next visitor can enjoy what you have been enjoying. If there is anything that you don't like or what you want to change, please tell me so that I can improve it in the future. I will leave you as free as you want, but I can always assist you with help or advise if you need it. I have a lot of friends that are here to help you if I am not around, working or travelling. You will never be alone in this big city.
I hope to see you soon,
