My 1st-floor apartment is a clean, quiet and comfortable place, it's ideal startingpoint to explore the city. It's situated just around the corner from the wonderful Vondelpark, Amsterdam's largest city park. The Leidseplein is also very near.
The living room is a sunny space with large windows and a balcony overlooking the Overtoom. There is a comfortable sofa, dining table, and digitalTV, DVDplayer, CDplayer, Ipod docking station. You have full access to wireless internet.
The kitchen is built in American Kitchen-style and fully kitted out with a microwave, oven, gas hob, toaster, Nespressomachine and a brand new dishwasher.
In the spacious Master bedroom in the back of the apartment you'll find a comfortable, soft double/king size bed (extra long), wash basin, and a small desk. The room has large windows that overlook the neighbours' pretty gardens.
The second bedroom is in the front of the house and also has a queen size bed. I have a baby cot available.
There is a modern bathroom with shower, large wash basin and toilet. The bathroom has comfortable underfloor heating. You'll find a second toilet in a separate room in the corridor. The corridor has a wardrobe where you can easily store your luggage. Bedlinen and towels will be provided. Washing machine/ iron/ ironing board/ hairdryer are all available for use.
You will be having access to your own apartment in the centre of Amsterdam, no shared bedrooms, no shared bathrooms or shared kitchen. The apartment is at the first floor.
Interaction with Guests
I'll be around the house for any questions or assistence and in the apartment you'll find a map with information on the area (things to do, things for childeren, shops, tips for nightlife, bars, restaurants, rental bikes, et cetera).
The neighbourhood Oud West is very laid back. There are heaps of nice shops and the best coffee shop in town is just around the block (Harvest and Company).
There are lots and lots of nice restaurants and bars in the neighbourhood and your host Jessie, who had a restaurant for years, will be very happy to give you advice or directions. If you prefer to stay in, the supermarket is almost next door and open till 22pm (Sundays 10am-20pm). There are several organic shops in the area, as well as designershops, a toy store, bookshops, a beertasting bar, an enormous travelbook store and a lot more that will capture your interest.
Across the street you can rent bikes, carrier bikes and scooters at Mac Bike. And very conveniently, the public transport stop is right on the doorstep of Museum Suite.
Public transport is easy in Amsterdam: there are tram stops all around you wich makes the city easy accessible. The airport is only a short train ride away.
Other Things to Note
Location: you'll find this renovated 60 m2 apartment in a typical Amsterdam building. The Museum Quarter of Amsterdam (The Van Goghmuseum, the recently re-opened Museum for Modern Art (Stedelijk Museum), and the Rijksmuseum) can be reached within 10 minutes walk.
The Leidse Square area, famous for its bars and cafes, the city theatre (Stadsschouwburg), cinemas, heaps of restaurants and nightlife is only a 5-minute stroll from the apartment. From the Leidse Square the Leidse Street takes you to all the big brand shops. The apartment is in a relaxed and quiet area, so it's a great place to escape the crowds. It's very easy to reach the apartment, and it's within walking (and cycling) distance to the heart of the city.
The Museum Suite is a non smoking apartment, although you are allowed to smoke outside on the balcony.
The apartment is not suitable for parties, no loud music and no invites without my consent. I am looking for considerate guests. Please consider the neighbours. Minimum stay of 7 nights.
We had an excellent stay in Jessie'apartment. Very conveniently located and very comfortable. Jessie was an attentive and friendly host, always kind and available. Would certainly stay again. Many thanks.
This was for my daughter and Jessie was very nice to trust that it would be a good choice for her to accept. The feedback I received is that she was very nice, the apartment was very nice, the location was good and she and her friends had a great time in Amsterdam.
El apartamento cumplió en todo nuestras expectativas. Es muy céntrico, a poca distancia del centro pero a la vez lo suficiente alejado para que sea un sitio tranquilo. Jessie es muy atenta, siempre dispuesta a ayudar y aconsejar. Nos dejó botellas de buen vino, café Nespreso, galletas y sobre todo su amabilidad. El apartamento es limpio, ordenado, con todo lo necesario para estar como en casa. A destacar la gran cantidad de enchufes que hay, no se puede decir que no podrás cargar tu móbil!. Muy cerca de Vondelpark, es un sitio ideal para el verano, pero aunque nosotros estuvimos en invierno, también lo considero ideal. Muy cerca tambien de la isla de los museos y rodeado de buenos restaurantes. Las camas muy grandes y a destacar también la ducha: el suelo tiene calefacción. En fin, lo recomendamos vivamente!
Jessie was a really wonderful host. Though the whole booking process she responded promptly and made sure everything was kept as we agreed to. She stocked the fridge with beer on our arrival and was very welcoming and friendly. She had laid out maps, travel cards and was always in contact! The house was very clean, comfortable and spacious. I recommend this to anyone and we look forward to staying here again!
We had an absolutely lovely time at Jessie's apartment.
It is clean and neat. Lovely flowers on the kitchen table as well as wonderful fruit and other goodies as a welcome gift.
Even when one of us was feeling very sick, she offered to help.
It is perfectly located, fast in the shopping area as well as very close to the park. We would def. come back to this lovely apartment, and highly appreciated the uncomplicated owner which is super helpful and a lot of fun to talk too.
Jessie is so nice and thoughtful host. I asked many questions about the direction, restaurants, and others before I visited her house, she answered me all in details. The location is perfect to move to every direction in Amsterdam the tram station is just in front of the house. We kept the time table for the tram and went out when the tram was approaching the station. There are good supermarkets, even organic market near the house and also you can go the big and beautiful park by foot.
About the house, it is needless to say! It is comfortable and a warm heart same as the picture. You feel you are at home. I think that is the important thing you can choose the one to stay!
Thank you so much, Jessie and hope to stay there in near future.
I mean it.
We were there from 4 th september till 11 september 2014, we liked everything in this flat ,its extremly cosy.
The appartment was super clean when we got there, we liked great beds with soft blankets (when you sleep it feels like heaven), also the kitchen is very comfortable to cook - you can find there everything you need.
We also like that the appartment has its own balcony, its not big but nice and its great to drink a morning coffee there :)
You could find everything you need for comfortable living in this appartment and huge bonus that its almost right in the center of the city.
The owner of the appartment Jessie is very nice person, she gave us nessesary information, advices what to see, where to go and warned about unpleasant stuff. it was very sweet of her.
So we recommend this appartment to everyone who is going to see Amsterdam.
I ve had a restaurant for years, and so I love food & wine and I like to cook myself. Besides food I'm crazy about film and documentaries, specially on when the subject food ;-). I simply love to go to the cinema, but I go to the theatre as well.
I've been traveling throughout Europe, (France, Spain, Italy, England, Ireland) but also South Africa, Australia, Thailand, Indonesia et cetera. My wish is to visit South America. And to explore Mongolia, seems a fascinating and pristine country to me.
I sincerely want to make your stay as pleasant as possible, so please let me know what you need. Ofcourse I also want to give you your privacy, so if you don't call me I won't be bothering you.
