About this listing
Located in the absolute city centre my loftish apartment is the perfect place to discover Amsterdam by foot. Within 5 minutes you are at Museumplein (Rijksmuseum, Van Goghmuseum and Stedelijk Museum), the Jordaan, Vondelpark, the nightlife at the Leidseplein and the "9-straatjes". Whatever you want to do in Amsterdam, I guarantee it is around the corner.
But even if you choose to stay at home you'll enjoy every single moment you are here. My recently renovated, light and fully equipped top floor lift apartment in a 1890s building features all you need for preparing an excellent meal, having a romantic evening at my fire place or enjoying summer at my roof terrace. Despite the central location my street is quiet and allows you to have a good rest.
Parking space is scarce and expensive but public transportation to Amsterdam central station (10 mins) and Schiphol (30 mins) is available from Leidseplein (2 minute walk from the apartment). The nearby grocery store (5 mins walk) is open 7 days a week from 7.30am till 10 pm.
I will provide you with a list of my favourite restaurants, cafés, shops and things to do in Amsterdam.
My house is ideal for couples. Please note that it is located on the 3rd floor. That does not only guarantee a beautiful and sunny roof terrace but also some steep Amsterdam stairs! You'll get easily used to them though!
And 'mi casa e tu casa' so just treat my home as you would treat yours...
Mark & Freeke were very good at communication throughout the process. They had a genuine interest in the reason for our stay, and were accommodating even though they were at a large event!
The house was amazing and well located, definitely book it if you're planning to stay in Amsterdam
Last minute my company moved me to Amsterdam so with little notice I found Mark and Freekes apartment.
They responded quickly to an urgent request and I made the booking within a day!
I couldn't have been happier with what I found when I arrived, what a beautiful, clean, stylish home with all the comforts of your own home (wifi, DVDs and TV)! All with a great location to experience Amsterdam!
Mark and Freeke were generous, kind and their place is really amazing. (Especially if you love to cook they have a massive profession over which is rare in Amsterdam)!
I'd stay again in the future for sure!
Freeke's apartment is very well located, the description of the property was completely accurate and the location could not have been better. In a dutch style, very cool and charming, it has everything you need to be comfortable - so we were able to cook on occasion due to dietary restrictions we faced before Amsterdam marathon.
Freeke was very kind and helpful, she met us as planned to check us in, patiently explained how everything works and gave us good advices about what to do in Amsterdam.
We had a great time at Freeke's home. Would highly recommend!
This Appartement is a real insider's tip, very much recommended. We felt very comfortable. Thanks to Freeke and Marc!
Freeke & Mark were very helpful, always quick to respond to our questions. They even loaned us their iron and ironing board for our two week stay. Very generous.
This loft is the perfect location in Amsterdam! So central and away from all of the crowded tourist areas. The stairs are steep but you get used to them. We spent a lot of time on the roof terrace and it was so wonderful to have a fridge! The apartment was clean and very cozy. We had everything we needed.
All in all, a great place to spend two weeks. We would recommend and stay here again. Thanks Mark & Freeke!
I've been to Amsterdam quite a few times and love the city a lot, but Mark & Freeke's apartment was definitely the best place I've experienced so far. It's location is perfect - in the middle of beautiful Jordaan area and, at the same time, close to all the tourist attractions, great cafes and night life. The apartment itself was such a lovely place, that sometimes you just wanted to stay in (especially at the roof terrace). And Freeke was such a lovely host, she's organised everything so smoothly, that I've just felt like home.
Beautiful apartment, great decor. It had everything we needed and more.The apartment is cosy, clean and modern. The kitchen is well equipped.
If we decided to come back to the beautiful city we'd choose to come back again the this amazing appartment. Thank you!

About the Host, Mark & Freeke
Freeke is a young female professional living in Amsterdam for over 5 years now. I have been traveling around the world and lived in Paris (France) and New York (US), but I am too attached to Amsterdam to stay away for more than a year. Mark is a painter (street art). We are together for almost three years.
What we do in Amsterdam? Strolling around, enjoying my home and roof terrace, exercising my photography hobby, going to museums and galleries. Just inhaling everything Amsterdam has to offer within walking distance of my charming loftish apartment. Hope to see you soon!
