Amsterdam is famous for it's architecture and this apartment leads by example.
So the atmosphere and facilities are perfect, what about the location?
YOU ARE CLOSE TO EVERYTHING!
The best thing about this location is the Vondelpark. Within one minute you can set foot in Amsterdam's most celebrated, romantic and lazy parc. Escape the crowds and be amazed you're still in the city. Checkout the wild and green parrots.
During this one minute walk you will encounter the supermarket, the ATM, the night shop, restaurants (for example Amsterdam's top thai take away and caterer Peperwortel) , a coffee-shop, the tram-station (going north, south, east and west), the bike rental, bars and much more.
Within five minutes walking you can find your self on the Leidse square, the canals, the museum quarter or Hollands' most popular and famous POP TEMPLE Paradiso!
Public transport is just around the corner and will take you anywhere you want. From the airport it's only 30 minutes by train and tram. See the red-light district, the Jordaan Area and everything else within 10 minutes of tramming.
The area in which you're staying is relatively quiet and most of all friendly, clean and safe. Everything you need is close by.
We could go on and on and on, but i think you get the idea. Check out the map, the photos and then the availability. Let us know what you want and we'll make sure it happens.
In all honesty this apartment has 1 major downside: you might not want to leave!
The apartment is perfect for two or three persons. We have a standard double bed and a sleeping sofa.
Make yourself at home in your second home in Amsterdam!
The most important rule is: Enjoy!
Because we live upstairs, we can help you out with everything you need. The only thing we ask in return is that after 2300 hours we can enjoy a quiet and peaceful night of sleep. And if you could leave the place like you found it, it would be appreciated.
Cute, well-lit flat in Amsterdam with a great location. René was a very accodomating, understanding host and I appreciate all the help he gave me and my friend during our stay. We'd love to return to Amsterdam some day. Thank you, René!!
The apartment is exactly as represented. It's in a quieter area but convenient walking or public transportation to everything. Amsterdam is an absolutely beautiful city. The hosts were available but left us to ourselves. Highly recommended.
Terrific welcome by Rene. Fantastic neighborhood and the place was as described. Bright and airy, plenary of room, and on a quiet street. Rene went above and beyond when we discovered we lost a wallet. He was helpful and comic stove, even though he was out of town. Fabulous!
We had a great stay in René And Wendy's lovely apartment - René was so helpful, friendly and accommodating, and the location is perfect for exploring Amsterdam. We will hopefully be back and would recommend their place to anyone!
I had a great stay at Rene' and Wendy's apartment. The location is excellent, right on the #1 tram so very easy to get in and out of the touristy parts of Amsterdam and walking distance to the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum. I didn't get a chance to meet Rene' but he checked in frequently by text and the apartment is really set up so that it can be accessed without meeting the host. The apartment looks exactly as portrayed in the pictures. Very comfortable. I enjoyed my staty!
Upon arrival, René gave us a warm welcome and tour of the apartment. The apartment is gigantic, comfortable, well equipped. Really great location - near bars, restaurants, grocery, and Vondelpark. We loved the Indian restaurant downstairs and Gollem's pub around the corner. We were able to walk everywhere, only using the tram to and from the train station (the stop is just down the street from the apartment). Thank you René and Wendy for the great stay!
We loved Rene and Wendy's apartment! So spacious and the beautiful windows let in so much Amsterdam light! Great location and perfect for walking all over the city! Rene was very helpful with our arrival and the apartment was very clean. Good wifi and amenities. We would definitely stay in their apartment again because the location was fabulous and it was very spacious. Rene was even patient and understanding with us when we misunderstood checkout time. Thank you very much Rene! We hope to see you again!!

About the Host, René And Wendy
Wendy grew up around the corner and René comes from a small town near the coast. They both enjoy sports, movies, travelling and helping people out.
They live in Amsterdam with Wendy's son Damian and their two cats Tarzan and Noa.
They are best described as easy-going, honest and interested people. What you see is what you get. They hate dishonesty and injustice, and they love to make fun of each other.
Come over, we would love to meet you!
