Paul was a great host. Very friendly and helpful. Excellent communication. The apartment has everything you could need....washer/dryer, dishwasher, wifi. Very clean and well maintained. The apartment is well located for tram and bus service with direct lines to center of town, train station and main museum area. A full service grocery store is a very short walk from the apartment. If we return to Amsterdam, our first choice will be to stay at Paul's apartment!
We were completely delighted with Paul and his apartment in Amsterdam. Paul was a wonderful host who really cared about our comfort and our good experience of his city. He went beyond what I would expect of a "landlord", offering the use of his bicycle, and providing a lot of useful information about transportation, eating out, and fun things to do and see. He made time to have real conversations with us, in spite of his own vacation busyness and full life. He is a wonderful example of the integrity and savoir faire of the younger generation. The apartment was really comfortable and has the most lovely view of Rembrandt Park, giving the weary traveler a real "sanctuary" to come back to at the end of a hectic day in a big city. With a full kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room, our needs were all taken care of and it began to feel like "home" immediately. Eating out in Amsterdam can be expensive, so the ability to make "home-cooked" meals was a major savings. Paul's apartment exhibits the truly Dutch talent for making the most of a small space. We never felt cramped and, as fresh-air lovers, we enjoyed the ability to open windows and let the summer air in. The bed was one of the best I've ever slept in, with fine cotton linens and lots of room for two people. Thanks to people like Paul and the wonderful friendliness of the Dutch people, ordinary folks like us with average incomes can continue to enjoy traveling and spending quality time in what has to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We hope and plan to go back again.
Paul was extremely accommodating from the start, from providing excellent tips about things to do with kids in Amsterdam months before our trip to obtaining a last minute fan to battle the uncommon heatwave that we happened to be caught in. The apartment was great, a block a way from the park and a few minutes walk from the tram station. One word of caution is for those who have more than one big piece of luggage, you'll have a bit of a workout :) Then again, this allowed me a few extra stress free beers! Paul thank you so much for being such an excellent host and providing a great welcome to Amsterdam.
A pleasant third floor apartment overlooking a lovely park, very close to the supermarket, restaurants, and transport into the central city. Paul's apartment was well equipped with excellent Wi-Fi and a superb coffee machine! His helpful communication and information made for a
A great apartment and a fantastically friendly host. The apartment overlooks a beautiful park, which is great for walking, jogging or bike riding. The location is only a short 5min (max) tram ride from central Amsterdam.
We loved our stay at Paul's place. We were greeted by his lovely sister Hedwig who showed us through the apartment and got us settled in. Later that evening we met Paul after coming back from a walk in the beautiful park across the road. We invited him to join us for a drink and we spent a good couple of hours discussing our lives, countries and places of travel. We loved the fact Paul took the time to come and get to know us and allowed us to get to know him a bit better as well. We have not really had that with our other stays and thought this was great. He even gave us directions for a bike ride through Marken and Vollendam which turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Paul goes above and beyond what is required. He is very accessible at all times and nothing is too much trouble for him. The apartment is immaculate, very well presented and in a great location, so close to transport and a beautiful park area across the road. It really felt like home to us and we felt very safe and secure and welcome there. If I ever go back to Amsterdam I intend to stay at Paul's again. I would thoroughly recommend Paul's place, you really won't be disappointed.
The apparment is huge, clean and beautifull. The view across the park is excellent. Paul is always ready to give you all the advice and confort for us to be compliant. Would recommend and retun.
The aparment is as shown in the photos!.
Thank you paul!!!!
Paul was an excellent host with a beautiful apartment with big windows and a balcony overlooking a lush green park. His attention to detail and thoughtful preparation of the apartment was outstanding. He provides everything you need and more. From the moment you open the door to his apartment you feel a sense of calm wash over you. I especially appreciated the modern bathroom as it was a true delight to come back to after a long day out. The apartment is very quiet, near the tram and some great ethnic restaurants. Paul was a very helpful and delightful host giving us good advice on transportation and answering all of our questions. We will be recommending his apartment to all of our family and friends and will always book with him when returning to the great city of Amsterdam.
My husband and I stayed at Paul's apartment for 4 nights. We had an absolutely amazing time! He gave us excellent directions on how to navigate from the Central Train Station to his place, showed us the nearest grocery store, and even gave us a referral for a bike rental. The apartment was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. It is located only a few kilometers from central Amsterdam- an easy ride by bike, but far enough away that the neighborhood was very quiet at night. I would recommend this apartment to anyone - thanks Paul! :)
Paul was an excellent host. He was available to answer questions but not intrusive. His apartment was clean, tidy and directly across from a quiet park. An easy tram ride to or from everywhere we wanted to go. We would not hesitate to rent from Paul again.
