a clean and fully equiped apartment. Modern, comfortable and romantic at the same time. feeling at home in a hoteladmosphere.
It is close to Westerparc, station and centre, situated in an area with lots of restaurants, bars and nice shops.
2-roomapartment available for 1 person or a couple ( with a child till 2 year), perfectly for a longer period. it is furnished, fresh and cosy, but without my personal belongings, so enough space and opportunity to make it yours.

Kitchen is part of the living room.

the apartment has an own entrance, but there is 1 small, steep stairs to climb!
my house is 1 minute walk from a great (culture) park, 10 minutes from the great area Jordaan, and 20 minutes walk from the centre.
The area is lively, but in the other hand: the park is great for a run/walk, and a coffee.... cinema or a dance! and is pretty big to find some peace (-:

At first, My wife was terrified with the steep stair in front of the apartment (we arrive with 2 big suitcases n bags), about this stair, Brenda had given the information on the listing. After we arrive on the top the stair, the feeling was disappeared right away. And comes the feeling of home-like with warm welcoming gesture from Brenda and her boyfriend. They explained everything we need to know and answer questions that we had. She also got a reference book about the apartment and surroundings. Even recommended few restaurants around. For us, it was a great great place to stay. The pictures advertised were exactly what we had in the apartment but staying in it is lot lot better. It was very clean and neat. Don't worry about kitchen appliances, we traveled alot, this apartment has more than you can ask for. Nespresso machine was a heaven for me. Sorry Brenda, I have almost clear all the coffee stock that you had. :))
Bedroom with balcon is major plus for me. The bed itself was not hard nor soft, it was okay. The bathroom is a luxury with shower , bathtub and a washing machine complete our days. It was soooo comfy and amazingly feels like home. I don't know what else to say. Hahahha. But I know that I will be back in Brenda's apartment one day and stay long enough to enjoy it.
Bus and tram are in front of the apartment and nowhere is too far for us. We practically use them every day. But, there was a big park just 5 minutes walking that we enjoyed our sunday with sunday market opening until 6pm.
Last words from me, great apartment, great owner, great transportation and still ringing in my head right now while writing this review. Thank you Brenda, we had a wonderful time in amsterdam. Cheers. Handry
Really lovely flat in a safe, quiet but central location in Amsterdam. The flat is a typical dutch style but very well furnished and a pleasure to stay in. Very clean and well connected with the tram literally outside the front door! Help being shown around the place and how things worked was also great - I would happily stay here again.
We can recommend this apartment which is exactly as Brenda describes it.
It was very clean on arrival. Quiet, comfortable and well equipped.
It is not always easy to tell from a city map just how long it will take to travel to sites in the city.
For reference from this flat:-
A tram and a bus stop are within 50m. of the flat. Buses and trams each pass on average every 10 minutes, so we had direct access to all of the main sites in the city center within 10-15 minutes travel time. Alternatively its a 15-20 minute walk to the central station or Dam square.
This is a good location to be based for the city center, museums and old canal areas of the town.
Brenda's apartment was beautiful and spotless! Everything felt like new, and it was nice and cozy for us for the weekend. We walked into the city centre most of the time but got the tram/bus when we were lazy. really really nice place, and I recommend it!
We had a wonderful time in Amsterdam. Brenda's home is excellent - a perfect base with all the facilities. A home from home. Brenda is lovely and she and her partner Sander are great hosts - they gave us great information about the local area and were on hand if we needed anything. We've enjoy every minute of our time here.
Sportive, happy, independent woman, who loves to travel.
i love Amsterdam, but also love discovering the world!
i work 3 days in a company where we organize all kinds of leisure- activities for people with a mentally handicap. the other days i like to do different things; giving yoga lessons and working for an event-company. i like to dance, enjoy culture and music, and spending time with my partner Sander and his daughter Iris, and my friends.
the park is my favorite place; i like to run and drink my coffees there.
