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!
Eine wunderbare erste Airbnb-Erfahrung! Mehr braucht man eigentlich fast nicht sagen. Liebe Gastgeberin, beeindruckend viele Bücher, gute Lage, sehr schöne Wohnung und lustiges Kätzchen!
Judith was wonderful. She was happy to talk about life in Amsterdam with us, which we were very interested in. She immediately gave us a tour of the apt and left us to our plans. The pictures are accurate and the neighborhood is safe and clean.
The reservation was canceled 31 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
we had a wonderful time at your home!
Everything was perfect. Judith even arranged it that we could arrive at 6:30 in the morning (!) after a night in the bus.
A great thing is that you can use her bicycles - which is the best way to explore this amazing city. We already have had a lot of good experiences with airbnb but this was one of the best :) Thank you for making our short stay so special.

O que eu poso dizer... Foi minha primeira experiência no airbnb.
Tive problema com minha mala que era grande para subir as escadas ... São bem íngremes e pequena...ela estava viajando, mas deixou um papel com todas as explicações ... Posso dizer que a experiência foi boa ... Mas pagaria um pouco mais caro ou segurava mais o dinheiro para ficar em um hotel ...
Judith’s place was perfect for our stay in Amsterdam! It’s a quick walk to the metro or a 10 min bike ride into the city centre. Judith was away while we were there, so it was just us and Welles, the cat, whose company we thoroughly enjoyed. Judith has left detailed notes, maps, and instructions around the flat so that we felt cared for even in her absence. The fact that Judith has two bikes to loan for her guests is a huge plus; we used the bikes every day to get around. The guest room is small and cosy, with a beautiful large window and glass door, opening onto a balcony that I’m sure would be very nice to use in warmer weather. The neighbourhood is very quiet and there is a supermarket down the road so money can be saved by eating in. We were welcomed with a package of Stroopwafels, which we enjoyed with our morning coffees. A great way to start every day in a beautiful city.
It was a great stay for US. We spend four days at Judith's place and we could not have expected anything better.

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.
