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.
René and Wendy deserve the glowing reviews they've received. The communication was excellent, from the time we arrived until we departed. The apartment is exactly as pictured. It was modern, clean and very comfortable. Great location in a nice neighbourhood with restaurants and cafés, walkable to many attractions in town. We would definitely recommend the accommodation and stay there again. Thanks for having us!
René was a wonderful, caring and helpful host providing us with loads of useful information. The beautifully designed flat is in a quiet yet centrally located area. We felt very welcome and at home there and will definitely return to René's place when in A'dam again!
Our family had a great stay at Rene and Wendy's. Spacious, well appointed and very comfortable, their flat was the perfect home base for our 1.5 weeks in Amsterdam. We really loved the location in terms of being 1 minute from Vondelpark, an easy tram ride to Centraal and an easy walk to the Jordaan and various museums.
3 of my friends and i stayed at Rene's place for 2 nights and We absolutely LOVE it, every little bit of it.
The unit is exactly what we have been pictured of and even better (the space!!)! the location is so great, it located outskirts of the golden area so u will get a peaceful sleep at night and it just takes around 4minutes tram ride to the central (but we always walk from central back to the unit).
The bike rental is just right at the corner (if bike riding is one of the option), i rent a bike and took me couple hours to get used to their rising habit (got yelled and cursed a lot for the first hour as i always stopped at the wrong place)
We also get to meet Rene (first and last day), he is super duper friendly he even prepared a little travel guide book to the guest (we took his advised to a local restaurant- "t' Zwaant Je", damn that was good!). Rene and Wendy just stayed up stair so it is convenient for the guest if we facing any problem. When we checked out from the unit we asked whether does him wanna check for any damages but he said it is not necessary, he trust us! (we did replace so foods and beverages at the fridge for the next visitor)
Overall, i highly recommend Rene and Wendy's place!
The flat is so well-lit, clean, just in one of the Amsterdam traditional house with big windows and
steep staircase. You can easily feel yourself as a local citizen. Everything you need is already there. Popular supermarket is in few steps. We could discover the city without any public transport, location is perfect!! And Rene was always in contact, could answer any question immediately.
René and Wendy's apartment is pretty, bright, very clean and well-equipped for 3-4 persons, enough towels/pillows/bedsheets for everyone and even some pair of slippers. The location is really good and central (just 10 minutes walk to the most important museums), the neighborhood is nice and quiet, with a lot of tiny café where you can brunch or have lunch, the supermarket is just around the corner. Maybe just two "negative aspects" : 1. the bathroom has no window, and the unique source of light are the small lightbulbs on the mirror, because of this it may lack some light; 2. to reach the apartment, there is a staircase quite steep and narrow, and if you have heavy suitcases, this could be uncomfortable. However René was very kind and helped us with our bags. We have only met René, and we were really struck by his kindness, helpfulness and availability at any time for any questions.
We really suggest to spend your time in Amsterdam in Rene's and Wendy's apartment, thanks to these two super Hosts and their pretty location your stay will be unforgettable!
We had an amazing stay at Rene and Wendy's home. While they were out of town during our stay and we were unable to meet in person, they left us food, wine, and great recommendations for the city. The apartment was clean and organized, everything you could want in a home away from home. They were communicative, responsive, and amazing hosts. I would highly recommend this home. The location is stellar, we used the kitchen a few nights to make our own dinner and they provided everything we could have needed. Thanks for such an amazing stay!

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!
