About this listing
In one of the nicest (prize-winning!) streets in Amsterdam, built in the Amsterdam School style, a newly renovated two bedroom apartment on third and fourth (top) floor.
A spacious living room with build-in kitchen. One bathroom on fourth floor with bath, separate shower, toilet and one sink (not as shown in floor map); a toilet on third floor. A balcony adjacent to kitchen and another large balcony adjacent to your room.
The guest room has a double, comfortable, pull-out sofa. Whether one or two people are comfortable in a double bed is up to your personal preferences, of course.
You'll be sharing the bathroom and kitchen as well as the rest of the apartment with me and my cat. There are no other guests.
Your room with balcony is yours alone (unless my cat sneaks in). If my guests want to keep their privacy, no interaction is required.
Its style is a mixture of coziness and functionality.
Lots of books and dvd's, which you're invited to peruse, in multiple languages.
There's a separate working area in the living room, where you're welcome to work on my laptop, or use your own.
Microwave, juicer, dishwasher, hairdryer, iron, laptop, printer, scanner.
Cable TV (with HBO-channel) and dvd-player in bedroom.
Bed sheets, towels, shampoo and shower gel available.
Closet space and a small rod for hanging clothes.
Two bikes available; you don't need to pay rent to use them, but you'll have to sign an agreement that you will return them.
A 10 minutes walk from Amsterdam-Amstel railway station
a 3 minutes walk from the nearest underground stop.
From there a 7 minute ride to city center and
a 12 minute ride to Central Station.
The airport can be reached within half an hour.
Just a few stops from RAI convention centre.
By tram the Leidseplein, the main musea and the city center are 20 minutes away. By bike less than 15 minutes.
The night bus is situated just around the corner.
I have two public transportation cards for within Amsterdam which you can use. You have to recharge them yourself; still, it's much cheaper to travel that way.
Walking distance from two gorgeous parks, from the Artis Zoo, the flea-market, and the Portuguese Synagogue.
Grocery around the corner, and lots of other shops also within walking distance.
Plenty of pubs and restaurants, some good, some better, can be found close by. Canvas and Trouw, very popular clubs, are just around the corner.
Quiet multicultural neighborhood.
Please note, if you're allergic to cats, it is not advisable to book. I have a cat, and she's very friendly and nice, but she is a cat.
You're invited to use my kitchen, just note it's strictly vegetarian (and is, by the way, also dairy kosher, if you're interested).
If you borrow one of my bikes, you'll have to replace it if lost or stolen.
Parties are fun, but please, not in my house.
Please don't eat, drink or smoke in bedrooms.
!!!Please be quiet on your way up to my apartment and while going down. Don't slam the front door, no loud talking while climbing/descending the stairs, bring your suitcases up/down quietly!!!
This is extremely important, as I promised my neighbors my hosting via Airbnb will not affect them negatively.
That's it. On the whole, I'll enjoy having you here if you enjoy staying here!
Judith was a warm and welcoming host. She had a lot of good information to provide us with when we were planning excursions around the city. Her apartment is charming, and is in a wonderful location. We were able to walk 5 min and go grocery shopping at the AH, or jump on the Metro. Having daily access to bicycles made our trip even better! We would definitely stay here again.
Judith was a very welcoming host, and the listing was just as it appeared. The neighborhood was in a perfect location: close to everything but still in a quiet neighborhood. It was a huge help to be able to use Judith's bikes. My sister and I were able to get anywhere we needed to go via bikes or walking. I would definitely recommend others to stay here!
Beautiful apartment on a quiet street! The metro was only five minutes away so the location is really ideal for me, not noisy at all but still very close to the busy parts of Amsterdam. volkshotel is also nearby if you need to hail a taxi for whatever reason (maybe to the airport). Judith was such a lovely friendly host, and her cat Welles as well. :) The balcony in the bedroom is something I wish I had in my own home! I would recommend this place to anyone! The only thing is that the staircase to reach her apartment is quite narrow, as are all the stairs in Amsterdam, so be ready to sweat with your suitcase :)
Judith was very welcoming and a great host. We stayed for a week and she was always happy to help and advise throughout our stay
My friend I had a great stay with Judith. The place very clean and looked exactly like it did in the pictures. The room is a little smaller, but we liked that it had a balcony. Judith was nice and really made us feel welcome. When we arrived, she showed us around the house, gave us a map and explained how to get to the places we were interested in seeing. Judith was friendly and available when we had a question during our stay, but mostly let us be. We loved the location. The apartment is in a quiet area, but still only a 20 minute walk from the city center. We appreciated being able to use her bikes and the fact that she had metro cards for us to use. Overall, Judith helped us have a fantastic stay in Amsterdam.
Judith and her cat were great hosts! They were super nice and accommodating. Thank you for everything!

About the Host, Judith
I'm a mother of 4 grown-up sons.
Interested in music, literature and languages, as well as lots of other things. And, of course, people!
An information science major, currently unemployed.
I like to travel and ride my bike, but like to be home as well.
I find the experience of hosting via Airbnb a very satisfactory one. I enjoy making feel people at home, and making sure they have everything they need. Also, I feel proud to live in this wonderful city, and to share this enthusiasm with my guests. The opportunity to get to know people I wouldn't otherwise have encountered is a large extra bonus!
However, if my guests want to keep their privacy, no interaction is required.
