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!
It was a great stay for US. We spend four days at Judith's place and we could not have expected anything better.
Judith was heel aardig en heeft ons echt thuis laten voelen! Het was ook heel leuk dat we de fietsen konden gebruiken. Het appartement is ook helemaal zoals op de foto's: veel licht en knus. Een aanrader!
Judith was lovely and very easy to communicate with before and during my stay. She made it very easy because she provided bikes, maps, towels, restaurant recommendations and even a public transport card. The room was comfortable and the house was in a great location, easy to get to the middle of town by bike, train or walking. I ended up having dinner with her and her son on my second night, which was a great experience. There are a lot of stairs so just be prepared! I would definitely stay here again.
Thanks Jess, it was a real pleasure having you here! I'm so sorry I didn't leave you a review, because I have only positive things to say about you.
How are you doing in Iceland?
All the best,
P.S. Thanks for drawing my attention to the smell. I'm working on it...
L'accueil était très chaleureux. Judith a à coeur de reçevoir et de discuter avec les personnes. Malgré le fait que nous ne parlons pas bien l'Anglais nous avons réussi à communiquer. Le quartier est agréable, je le pensais plus proche du centre d'Amsterdam (mais n'avais pas réalisé l'ampleur de la ville).
The Judith's appartment is very well situated, five stops from the central station, in a nice area of the city. She is very welcoming and makes us feel like you were at home. Everything is like the pictures show. We surely recommand this place to everybody !
Mi pareja Isa y yo estuvimos tres días alojados en casa de Judith, era nuestra primera experiencia con air bnb y fue excelente. Judith fue una gran anfitriona, muy atenta antes de la llegada y durante nuestra estancia. Nos dio completa información y recomendaciones sobre la ciudad y siempre estuvo dispuesta a ayudar y a hacer comfortable nuestra estancia. Tiene una conversación agradable y es muy atenta. Las bicicletas incluídas en el alojamiento son de gran ayuda para desplazarse por la ciudad. La Casa es muy bonita y hogareña. Lo cierto es que recomendamos totalmente visitar este hogar y estamos seguros de que volveremos algún día.
Thanks to Judith, her house and her bikes, was one of the best visits to Amsterdam (out of 10+). Was our Airbnb first experience and Judith has the experience and joy to be a perfect host.
You'll receive exactly what's listed on page: a clean, full of light place, in a really quiet neighborhood. The bedroom is small, cosy and has access to a private sunny terrace, while the living is generous and proves Judith has good taste when about interior design.
Walking (5min) distance to Metro and Supermarket, arr. 3km to city Center.
Do not miss the opportunity to have the bikes (pair) for a day tour.

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.
