Perfect location, spacious and light 1 Bedroom modern Apartment in the area called Jordaan. Canal view over Brouwersgracht.

You can expect to experience the real local Amsterdam feeling, being in one of the best locations you can think off having a base to relax and feel home..my house is your house.
The area is famous for its bars, cafe's and restaurants. Anne Frank House, Haarlemmerdijk, the Noordermarkt and 9 streets are all at walking distance...markets on Thursday and Saturdays around the corner.
There is a area map in the house with tips and places you should go, i.e. bikerentals, great food etc...

My place is unique because its modern in an old part of town. Vibrant on the street side but silent on the back side where you sleep.
I am positive you will enjoy your stay.
Interaction with Guests
As much as you want but I myself always think guests want to feel the house is theirs, so no communication with me.....but let me know if you want more interaction.
Other Things to Note
It will be difficult to say bye to the bed cause its awesome!
Be respectfull to neighbours, city apartment.
No loud sounds after 11pm
No smoking (weed) inside!! There is a coffeeshop downstairs and a balcony for that.
I enjoy making your stay memorable!
Martins place in the Jordaan was spectacular! We had the most amazing time here. The apartment is clean and so spacious. The location is what we loved most, right in the midst of cool cafes and the most beautiful canal. Although we didn't get to meet Martin he was extremely helpful and responded quickly to any queries we had. I highly recommend to stay here!
Martin is a nice guy and was most welcoming. He was waiting out the front for me when I arrived. He provided a list of all the local spots to check out and gave me a tour of the apartment on arrival.
His apartment is in an excellent location, close to everything. Easily walkable to great restaurants, smoke shops and bars. With a bike, the location is supreme.
The tv and sound system were excellent. He had a whole suite of movies to watch and the speakers easily hooked up to my iPhone via Airplay.
The only bad thing was it could have been a little cleaner. I had to clean the bathroom upon arrival - luckily he had cleaning supplies and was very apologetic when I told him. The bed was also a bit short - I'm 6'1" and my feet were rolling off the end of the bed.
However I would definitely stay at his spacious apartment again. The balcony, living room and central location make this apartment a winner.
We loved staying in Martin's apartment and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Martin was very warm, welcoming, and clear. He provided a lot of useful information about the neighborhood and the surrounding area. Martin lives in the apartment so this is not one of those airbnb rentals that is poorly looked after. The apartment looks out onto a quiet street and the people watching is amazing. The bed was very comfortable and I liked the adjustable seating. The shower runs very hot and the water pressure is good. (As a traveler I'm primarily concerned with the comfort of the bed and shower!) Within a very short walk is a busy, hip street with restaurants, grocery shopping, and bars. We rented bikes from the place he recommended and had the most wonderful time touring Amsterdam.
Martin was very friendly and accommodating. He knows the neighborhood very well and offered great food and drink tips if you want to blend in with the locals. The space was very spacious and the terrace was perfect for sipping wine and getting some afternoon sun. Great location, very close to restaurants, bars, bike shop, grocery store and all you need. Thanks, Martin.
Very confortable flat, good bed, great Tv set, and easy location. Martin was a very available host, Will come back soon!
Everything was near perfect on our trip to Amsterdam, and Martin's lovely apartment was no exception. It was in such an amazing location(the Jordaan really is the place to stay), and the style/space of the place is even better than the pictures let on.
Martin was very kind and was there to greet us when we arrived. He had print-outs of maps and activities to do around the neighborhood, and showed us how to work everything in all the rooms. After that, we said goodbye and then had privacy for the rest of the trip.
Would absolutely recommend Martin and his awesome apartment to anyone and hope to stay there again!
Martin was a superb host. He welcomed us on arrival, gave us a good tour of his awesome pad, and even prepared some maps with good tips and suggestions for the weekend. He is very friendly, flexible, welcoming and above all cool!
About the Host, Martin
I'm very organized. As Office and IT manager I make sure everybody and the building works properly at my job.
This reflects in my house where you will find everything works top notch...from the network, TV, heating, dishwasher etc...
I have lived for 10 years in Amsterdam and also in other countries, I love showing my place and making guest feel at home.
I travel a lot so there might be times where I am not the person to give the key, either you will meet best friends of mine or I will point you to a shop in the neighbourhood which I know the owners very well.
I will be always communicate well in advance whats going to happen on the first day.
During you're stay. my feeling is no news is good news.
I am 99% of time available to answer your questions and I won't ask during your stay how it is or if there is something I can help with. You contact me.
If I would to stay in someone elses home I would not want to feel like I am a guest all the time by having the landlord ask me questions..
Your review is very important to me, I will do my best to make your stay as good as possible!
