The Space

FREE BIKES!

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.

Central heating.

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.

  • Judith is a kind and friendly host who is very responsive to all our enquiries both through email and when we met. her cat has the softest fur and a curious nose but does not enjoy just anyone to hug her though my friend managed to (: The neighborhood is abt 5min walk fr nearest metro and 4 metro stops fr Amsterdam Centraal. The use of bike is a great plus and I managed to cycle to Albert Cyrup market, the musuems and vondel park from her place easily. The bedroom is small and one floor above the living room but Judith kindly allowed us to put our big luggage in the living room and her sofa bed is very stable (non creaky) and comfortable. Thank you very much Judith !

  • I really had a pleasant stay at Judith's. The apartment is quiet and cosy with lots of light coming from two directions. Neighborhood also quiet although close to the city center. There is a metro station nearby if you don't want to use the bicycles.
    Judith is such a nice person, she really took care of me and my son (who stayed with me the first night), making us feel at home and relaxed. And Welles the cat kept us company.
    Great place to stay!

  • We felt really at home at Judith's place. The house was nice, the support and care from Judith was wonderful. She is a very intelligent and sensitive person, it was a joy to get to know her.

  • Judith's place was a nice, quiet haven being located slightly outside of the city central. My boyfriend and I were always exhausted after a long day in Amsterdam, and the pull-out couch was surprisingly comfortable. Judith was very eager to help with maps, directions, guide books, and suggestions of places to visit. It's helpful to be fond of cats as Welles will ask to come in your room to say hello a lot. The bikes were great to borrow- there's no better way to get around the city.

  • Judith was an AMAZING host! She's very friendly, wonderful to talk to, and very helpful. The directions she gave to her house were very easy to follow and we got to her place with no problems. Her home is very close to the city center, it only took us 15 minutes to get to the Amstel canal. Our first night there she gave us places to eat, recommendations on museums, maps of the city, guide books, and access to the two bicycles she owned. The room was set up beautifully and the bathroom was truly incredible. She lives right beside a metro so even getting to the very edge of the city was incredibly easy. I would love to stay with Judith again, it was one of the best airbnb I've ever had! Thank you so much!

  • Very well located and pleasant apartment. Judith very helpful and friendly - could not do enough for us. Free use of bikes and she encouraged us to use all the facilities. Very clean and well cared for apartment.
    Two small downsides - steep and narrow stairs to the third floor, and the bed is a roll out couch, although comfortable.
    Would happily stay again - good value.

  • Judith's place was perfect for me. The directions were spot on and the welcome was very warm and I instantly felt relaxed. The flat is over two floors and is in a very interesting neighborhood very easily accessible from the city centre and I enjoyed being near enough but somewhere more peaceful. Transport links were very good. Judith provided tea, great coffee and breakfast, towel, toiletries and that helped keep luggage down for a short stay. Judith's cat Welles was really the icing on the cake and has the prettiest paws I've seen. Really good if you like cats as she is very welcoming too and informative. I highly recommend staying here and I was so pleased I chose airbnb and this place over a hotel. It made my visit feel much more relaxed.

    Thank you Judith for letting us feel like home and welcomed.

  • Judith was a fantastic host! Being an American in Amsterdam for the first time I loved having a bike at my finger tips, a clean home to hang in and suggestions from a local. I would highly recommend staying with Judith.

    March 2014
  • I stayed for 5 days at Judith's place with a friend. We had a great time, Judith is very friendly and approachable, and apartment is very cozy and clean. I would recommend this place to everyone :)

About
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.
