About This Listing
If you feel excited to have all Amsterdam has to offer you nearby, but prefer a calm and comfortable place to sleep in the centre, then I'd be more than happy to welcome you as my guest!
Travel happy and relaxed!
New bookings can make use of the WIFI connected terminal in their room to easily check the sites of touristic hotspots and to navigate easily in Amsterdam! And, of course, there's plenty on paper to make your plans....
Make yourself at ease! You will stay at my old Amsterdam house, SHARED with me, in one of the popular areas of Amsterdam and have your own sleeping room with comfortable electric adjustable double boxspring. Feel free to watch a movie at night from the bed before going to sleep and make yourself a coffee or tea if you like. My house has a separate toilet and modern bathroom with rain shower. It’s all not too big, but modern and clean. No need to bring towels or soap, they are already here for you! Best thing in my house is the balcony (becoming a green garden :-)) at the south side of the house, that catches sun from early morning, and a perfect breakfast place (or have it in one of the nearby coffee places).
Plenty of oranges are usually on stock in the kitchen and free to take, so go for a homemade healthy fresh orange juice or smoothy for breakfast or anytime you like!
Newcomer in Amsterdam? I’d be happy to help you on your way. But just to give you an impression of approximate distances and the hotspots you can just walk:
- A 5 minute walk to the Albert Cuyp market, the Sarphati park
- A 10 minute walk to the 17th century Amsterdam canals and canal houses and boat tours, Heineken Experience or Amstel River
- A 15-20 minute walk to the Utrechtsestraat, Leidseplein, van Goghmuseum, Museum Square or Weesperzijde/Carre theatre area.
- 3 minutes to Bike rental, tram stop, supermarket and (arthouse) cinema Rialto
- Studentbars, music and art cafes (lunch, dinner and drinks at reasonable price) are just in the neighborhood of Albert Cuyp.
- 5 mins by tram from RAI conference centre (or walk it in 25 mins)
- Need information on tram lines, nices routes or places to go? Just ask!
- Traveling like a real Dutchman? Your key chain is an 'OV chip card'.for public transportation. Charge some credits and make low cost trips: easily cross Amsterdam or visit other cities.
South part of the center where my apartment is located is definitely at the ‘suitable side of Amsterdam’ to reach Schiphol Airport (6x per hour, total traveling time approx 30 minutes by public transport).
If this suits your preferences, I look very much forward to welcoming you!
*** IMPORTANT: My space can get booked within short time frame. To reserve the space for yourself, confirm this with a payment. To avoid disappointment I recommend checking your airbnb inbox shortly after sending your message to me. At Amsterdam daytime, generally expect my reply to your message within 1 hour or less. Thank you so much and have a wonderful (holi)day in Amsterdam!!!***
Just to make all have a convenient stay here:
- My house is a non-smoking area (but outside is fine of course)
- My house is not suitable to bring pets
- I trust all to respect my neighbours and their sleeping hours (as old Amsterdam houses are no fully isolated music studios unfortunately). So keep it quiet at late night and take your shoes off.
- My house is not suitable for disabled as it has, for Amsterdam perspectives, a very doable staircase, but no elevator
- No joints, no marijuana, no paddo's, no pink elephants or simply...no drugs (only allowed in coffee shops)
- Clean the kitchen after use (leave it as you found it)
- Weekend check in can be flexible (please inform me about your expected arrival time)
-My location offers a place for only 2 guests and I receive oftentimes inquiries for overlapping dates: Of course unless agreed otherwise, the space is reserved for you after booking completion.
Sono stata ospite di Renske con un'amica, la nostra prima volta ad Amsterdam. Siamo state accolte con calore e la nostra host ci ha fornito informazioni utili sulla città e sul quartiere, suggerendoci gli obiettivi sui quali concentrare le nostre energie nel poco tempo a disposizione.
De Pijp è un quartiere non centralissimo (10 minuti in tram dalla stazione centrale) ma vitale, lontano da quelle che Renske ha definito "trappole per turisti". Nei pressi dell'appartamento ci sono bar e ristoranti molto frequentati ma mai sguaiati o equivoci.
L'appartamento è delizioso: pulito, arredato con gusto e dotato di ogni comodità. Siamo rimaste impressionate dalle caratteristiche scale quasi verticali che portano all'appartamento e dalla comodità del letto. Esperienza molto positiva e totalmente consigliata!
Renske was a delightful hostess, making our brief stay in Amsterdam quite nice. Her warm and inviting personality was charming. The quaint apartment is up a steep, narrow set of stairs that she navigates with ease, even while carrying our luggage, though we found a bit intimidating. Inside, her home is clean, bright and inviting. All areas except the bedroom are shared spaces, which could have been awkward, but Renske was very accommodating. The shower room is separate from a quite small toilet area which helps accommodate multiple guests. The bedroom was filled wall-to-wall with a comfortable, adjustable bed and just enough floor space for our luggage and a bit of maneuvering. Her space is a 5 minute walk to several tram lines (number 4 was quite convenient to reach old town and Central Station) and we found a delightful little bakery worth visiting.
Renske is a wonderful host! She is a nice, interesting, welcoming person and you can feel she puts a effort to make you feel at home and enjoy your stay. she even waited for us when we came late and was explaining us about the interesting things to do around. Her home is clean, beautiful and and located in a really nice area which is also close to the center. We enjoyed our stay very much and recommend Renske's home to everyone. Thank you!
Renske was a great host and very helpful! Always a friendly smile and never overbearing during the stay.
Her place is perfect, she provides ample tourist information, and you find exactly what was advertised!
Her place is ideally located, provided you are willing to walk a few blocks.
Thank you Renske!
Renske was an amazing host. We were only there for a short period of time but she made herself available to us whenever we had any questions about how the city was set up, things to see, and anything else we asked. Her apartment is in a great location, the Albert Cuyp market was an amazing area and so was the De Pijp neighborhood where her apartment was, only 5 minutes apart. We enjoyed the walk from her apartment to the city center, and it was more than doable. her stairs were extremely steep but she carried our bags up for us which helped out a great deal. I would highly recommend her apartment for anyone looking to see both the local areas of the city as well as the bustle of the city center. I would love to stay with Renske again, and plan on trying to have lunch or dinner with her when we return next month!! xx
About the Host, Renske
Just a little bit about the 'why joining the airbnb hosting community':
It was a year ago, I urgently needed a place to stay in NY at the time all hotels seemed full, that I used Airbnb for the first time. Never expected but so amazing!! I had a wonderful host there. So much better than a hotel!
Now, a year after, I have the luck to own a fantastic place to live in Amsterdam, which I am ready to share. Being the finishing touch of your city trip will be a honour and my pleasure, and I will do my very best for that. And proof that Airbnb is just a better alternative to stay. Looking forward to learn to know travelers from all over the world!
