About This Listing
Our (your) house is a small ,70 square meter, 4 floor monument located at the very heart of the Jordaan. This used to be a workingclass neighbourhood but the Jordaan has become area dotted with art galleries; speciality shops and restaurants.

This is a wonderful location to stay. The house is positioned in a quiet and beautiful area and is in walking distance to supermarkets and tram lines - a short journey by tram to the Central railway station. The host was thoughtful and helpful and personally welcomed us to her home.
The house was very clean and offered more good quality linen than we could possibly have needed. Our stay in Amsterdam was very memorable and happy and staying at this quaint and comfortable accomodation played a large part in this. I would stay there again and highly recommend it.
We had an amazing time staying a Joke's house in the Jordaan! She was extremely helpful throughout the entire booking and arrival process, answering all of my questions ahead time and upon arrival had croissants, cheese, wine, and other goodies waiting for us as we had been traveling for 24 hours!
The house is beautiful, on a quiet street near many restaurants and shops, and the trams are a short walk away! This house is perfect for exploring Amsterdam and the quiet neighborhood is so relaxing to return to after a busy day out!
We would love to come back and stay here again, and I would highly recommend the house to anyone looking for an amazing Amsterdam getaway!
Lovely small house in the middle of Amsterdam. Joke (the owner) gave us (2 Adults, 2 Kids) a warm welcome. Everything was fine. If we would come to Amsterdam again, we won`t hesitate booking the house again ...
We had a great time staying at Jokes house in Jordaan! Location is awesome you can walk to pretty much everything & there is lots of nice cafés and restaurants close by. The apartment is very spacious and it's nice to be able to enjoy each of the levels! The apartment has everything that you need & the kitchen is stocked with all cooking essentials if you want to eat in as well. Joke is very quick with communication and greeted us on the first night with a lovely bottle of wine, a bowl of fresh fruit and some delicious waffle biscuits that were gone in no time! We will definitely come back to stay next time we are in Amsterdam! Thanks Joke!! :)
We absolutely loved staying at jokes house. She met us off the tram and showed us useful things on our way to the house. The area is fab - a short stroll to some great places to eat. We hired bikes from just around the corner with a bike seat for our toddler - id really recommend it. The house is really comfortable and very cool. Perhaps more suited to babies or slightly older children than our 3 year old only because the steepness of the stairs.
We've just returned from a week's stay at Joke's lovely house in the Jordaan. From the time of booking until arrival Joke was extremely helpful and answered all my questions very fast. The house is located on a very quiet street but literally just around the corner from everything you'd wish to see, do or eat in the Jordaan area. The house is lovely - just as you see in the photographs, and Joke kindly left some extras - nice red wine (for me!) and chocolates for my 15 year old son. We had a great time and would certainly recommend and hopefully return ourselves in future.
Joke arranged to meet us nicely ahead of time and met us at the door with a smile when we arrived. She gave us a great, quick tour and clear instructions and even left us with wine, beer, coffee and chocolate! The space is as promised... clean, lovely, and homey. She kindly let us use her bicycles around Amsterdam (it's fun but CRAZY if you're not familiar with it). The restaurant and grocery recommendations were most helpful and accurate. Joke checked in with us during our stay (via email) to make sure we were doing okay. Can't say enough nice... but I should warn you away so it's available when we can return! ;-)
