About this listing
You will not expect this!
In the popular area Old-West, parallel to the shoppingstreet de Kinkerstraat and close to the Vondelpark and the entertaining Leidse Square, you can find my appartment of approximately 66m2, with a good balcony towards the south, on the second floor.
I bought this apartment and decided to completely rebuild it. I had a couple of specific wishes, like a brick texture wall, a kitchen made of concrete and the extremely heavy metal bathroom door. It took some effort but every piece of furniture has a special story. I transformed a simple apartment into a New York style loft. The urban, metrostyle combined with old family treasures and secondhand furniture found in thriftstores and on the Internet, makes it a special and intimate home.
For your use there is wifi, cable tv and of course central heating.
Parking is possible in the street, but local parking prices are due.
I am clean and take good care of my beloved home. Though, also for you if you would rent my house; good people receive a good treatment!
Just around the corner there is a very long
"shopping" street the "Kinkerstraat" for all your daily needs and more, where you can find a 6-days a week open air
"ten kate" market, also known as a farmers market.
The Hema, a famous big Dutch department store,
boutiques, coffeeshops, restaurants, lunchrooms, bookstores,
a 7-days-a-week-open supermarket, dry cleaner, or a laundry service a cross the street, next to the drugstore/pharmacy,
And a Internet cafe on the corner,
in case you decide to leave your laptop home too ;p
My apartment is only 20 min. from the airport or central station,
The tram and nightbus stop (7&17 tram and the 353 nightbus)
is only a few steps from my house.
Main attractions like the Leidseplein, Museumplein (a square, where all are big museums are located), Vondelpark or the grachtengordel (canals) and it's little 9 streets,
are no more than 10,15, or 20 min. away.
Tram no. 7 will take you to leidseplein with loads of restaurants, bars, and the Leidsestraat "shopping street".
The Leidsestraat leads you to the floating flower market
and the Kalkverstraat, downtown shopping area.
Tram no. 17 will take you into town to the Dam square (and it's monument) and Central Station.
To the Museum plein get on tram no.7 ( direction flevopark)
or tram no.17 (direction Central station). Get off the 2nd stop (Kinkerstraat/Bilderdijkstraat), and take tram no.12 ( direction Amstel station) or tram no.3 (direction Muiderpoort station) it's as everything, very close by.
For the people that can't sleep, the 353 nightbus runs all night
and stops at the same tramstop, takes you straight into town, Leidseplein,
city centre and central station
non will take longer then 5, 10 or 15 minutes ride.
I am sure you will have a pleasant time!
No smoking inside
Absolutely brilliant! Marijke you're apartment is amazing! Loved everything about it, and the bed was soooo comfy too. Really cool, friendly area too. We didn't want to leave, probably my favourite airbnb apartment so far! Onno was so helpful and easy to keep in contact with, such a nice guy! Please let us come back someday :-) Thanks for letting us stay x
De locatie is nabij een tramhalte dus prima bereikbaar. Daarnaast hebben we de route erheen vooraf gekregen.
Het appartement ligt in een rustige woonstraat met alle voorzieningen nabij.
Nadeel is dat er geen echte verduistering van de ramen is waardoor het in het slaapvertrek 's nachts nog erg licht is.
Wonderful apartment- exactly as advertised. We felt very welcomed. Great start to our first trip to Amsterdam!
I had a wonderful stay at Marijke's place. The apartment is as pictured - furnished well, with a balcony and in a cute neighborhood just outside the city center. We were greeted by her friend Otto, who told us about the place and recommended us some cool places nearby and some nice attractions to go and visit. The place is right near the Foodhallen, a trendy food hall which we quite enjoyed. I would highly recommend this place to anyone staying in Amsterdam.
Loved my stay in Amsterdam at Marijke's wonderful warm unique loft. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient with everything you need within two blocks cafes markets. etc and two tram stops to the Museum District or pleasant mile walk. Loved loved loved my stay...
Marijke's apartment is absolutely gorgeous. You can tell that every single little detail has been thought about carefully and designed to work together to create a stunning place - as the photos show. Arrival and departure was easy with the help of Onno, who was friendly, helpful and prompt. The neighbourhood is safe and friendly - close to the centre without being trapped in tourist madness - and there are many good places for food nearby - from breakfast at The Breakfast Club to dinner at the amazing Food Hallen. The apartment is also just a short walk/cycle away from the great De Negen Straatjes shopping area or Vondelpark. It is a truly special place to stay that we will never forget!
Marijke's place is in a good location, it's a quiet street just minutes from the tram and an outdoor market. There are great cafés and restaurants nearby, like Bax and Lot Sixty Six. The apartment itself is darker than in the pictures but it wasn't an issue and to be honest it adds to the atmosphere of the place. The decor is great and it's certainly a very unique place to stay. We were met by Onno who was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Would definitely recommend staying here if you're into an authentic experience.
