Staying in Mart's flat was an absolute joy! The flat is really cozy and nicely furnished, we were not wanting for anything!
Even though we did not get to meet Mart, we felt truly welcomed by him as he left us a welcome letter with lots of information and also the bottle of wine as a welcome gift was a lovely touch (and finished off on the day).
He kept in touch with us during our stay via email, and was was very open to any questions.
The area is really good, great supermarkets round the corner, a few nice cafes and bars, away from the touristy city centre, aswell at the tram no. 10. Mart left the keys at a local cafe, who were super friendly and informative about the area.
I would not think twice about staying here again, the flat and area come highly recommended.
I booked Mart's apartment for my boyfriend's birthday. It is really lovely - stylish, clean and only a short walk from Jordaan, a brilliant neighbourhood nearby.
Mart was an good host, very flexible with check-in and check-out and left us some maps and info on the surrounding area. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
The apartment is ideally located. Not too far from the center on foot, by tram it's very quick. The station is located a few meters from the apartment.
Apartment clean, convenient and decorated with charm.
Communication with our host was simple. Mart responds very quickly and gives very good advices.
I highly recommend this apartment.
As any review should this one will have two parts: good and not so good... and I will try to be as much objective as I could.
Apartment is located at really nice and quiet residential area, not too far from the center of the city - approximately 15 minutes by tram and around 30-40 min to walk. We had never met Mart, but all communications were smooth and easy. He provided us with all needed information and also was so kind to permite us a late checkout.
Not so good:
1. Two towels provided were really small to use in shower and both smell awfully.
2. Apartment has two big balcony windows, one against another. One of them does not have curtains, so you do not feel comfortable to get out of the shower.
3. As other travelers already complained - light in the bathroom is very dim.
4. Apartment was little dusty...
Mart was very informative and was very easy to contact had we any problems. Everything went smoothly and we had a great stay. Highly recommended. Cheers again Mart!
About the Host, Mart
I love living in Amsterdam and I am very happy with my apartment in Westerpark which I bought in 2011. I enjoy spending time with my friends such as visiting concerts, cycling, playing soccer, running or just having a drink. During my studies I lived in South Africa for 4 months and since then I love travelling, visiting friends abroad in countries such as China, Singapore and Brazil.
in the meantime we are discovering and loving Amsterdam every day and we are excited to introduce you!
