Very nice apartment at the groundfloor in the most popular area of Amsterdam, De Jordaan. The apartment is modern, clean, functional and comfortable. It has it's own entrance, own bathroom and kitchen, so you have complete privacy. The bathroom has a bath and shower. In the kitchen you will find a stove, fridge, microwave and all the equipment to make your own meals. There is a new cable plasma television, free internet and heating in wintertime.
The Jordaan is a lively, picturesque, authentic and friendly neighbourhood around the Amsterdam canals: small streets, tree-bordered canals and a variety of small restaurants, bars, terraces and all sorts of shops.
Around the corner at de Lindengracht there is a market every saturday, and at de Noordermarkt a so called Boerenmarkt for organic food etc, and monday a flea-market. On Monday too a so called Lappenmarkt (textile's) at the Westerstraat. The well-known Anne Frankhuis is at the corner. Central Train Station is a ten-minutes-walk away.
In the Marnixstraat at the corner, a 5 minutes-walk, you will find trams en busses which bring you to other parts of the city, to the famous Museums as the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum and the VanGoghMuseum.
At your arrival you will find all kind of information about the area and the city.
No smoking, very strictly. No animals. I charge no cleaning fee, no deposit, so I expect you to consider the apartment as your own, leaving it in the state you have found it. The bed is kingsize double, but can be changed in two single beds. All very comfortable. For the double there is no need for fearing a gap in the middle. No more than two guests are allowed.
Bellissima vacanza passata insieme alla mia metà! Appartamento confortevole e situato in zona centrale! Il proprietario ci ha ospitato benissimo! Ci ritorneremo sicuramente! :-)
Jan is a very nice and welcoming host. It was very easy to keep in touch with him and he offered us very useful information as well as recommending some nice restaurants in the area.
The apartment is comfortable and it has everything we needed to make the most out of our stay in Amsterdam (spacious bathroom, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, good wi-fi). It is in walking distance of most attractions in the city center and the neighborhood is very nice, quiet and peaceful. Public transportation is also very close.
We will definitely try to stay here on future visits to the city, as well as recommending it to others.
Jan's apartment was based in the pretty area of Jordaan which is a fantastic base to explore the rest of the city. Jan was a welcoming host and the apartment was clean and had everything we could need. I would definitely stay here again and will be recommending it to friends.
Jan is a very friendly and helpful guest! The apartment is very well located, u can easily reach every main spot in town including the central station. The surrounding area is very nice too. There's also a nice pub just opposite the apartment where you can stop and have a beer before getting back home. Most importantly the apartment is really tidy and clean, Jan put also a bunch of roses on the table in our kitchen, absolutely a great welcome. we would definitely recommend it to our friends and come back our selves again.

Jan var klar til at tage imod os da vi ankom, og sørgede for at vi kom godt på plads. Lejligheden ligger perfekt i Joordan, det (i vores mening) bedste kvarter i Amsterdam. Masser af små hyggelige gader og gode restaurenter.
Jan var den perfekte vært og lejligheden var ren og hyggelig.
Kan især anbefale Burger's Patio, hvor vi fik en god 3 retters menu.
Man skal være opmærksom på at det ene supermarked, ikke tager visakort - og kun kontanter. Hvor de andre steder kun tager kort (butikker).
Hvis man skal bo i Amsterdam får Jan's lejlighed vores allerbedste anbefaling!
We had a great stay at Jan's place. The area is walking distance to all the major attractions. The area is generally peaceful and we felt totally safe walking around at night.
I had a wonderful time @ Jan's place. I was warmly welcomed and I had the privilege of a very private and deep conversation together. The place is perfect and the host is exquisite. I loved every moment of it. Hartelijk bedankt, Jan !
My profession is visual artist. I make paintings and drawings. My website is: (website hidden). I always worked in art-education, the last 17 years at The Rietveldacademy. Now I'am retired and a full-time painter. I'm very happy on a motorcycle, I own a 30 years old XT500. I like film and play a little bit at the accordeon.
