The apartment is showing lot's of art, which gives a special touch to the place. 'Artfulstay Amsterdam Apartments' is a new concept, which is a crossing between a gallery and a short stay apartment. You just don't buy art in 5 minutes. To 'live' with the art for a little while, gives you a better feeling if you like the piece during the day, in the night and even the next morning...

What a delightful apartment! This was our first trip to Amsterdam so we were uncertain where to stay Turns out that Sharon's apartment is in a very handy location near the museums, tram, canal boats, shopping, etc. yet it is on a quiet residential side street. We arrived early and were welcomed by Sharon's friend and able to leave our luggage off. We walked to most everything, even though we are seniors with bad knees. The apartment is on ground level - hooray! It is very comfortable, well-equipped, perfect for two couples, has lovely outdoor deck where we enjoyed our wine and cheese purchased at the nearby grocery store. Several restaurants close by with shaded outdoor seating - we recommend the Italian just two blocks away. Hope to be back - Thank you, Sharon!
L'apartement est magnifique et très bien equipé.Sharon est (website hidden) situation est top(1/4h de marche de presque tous les centres d'intérets d'Amsterdam).J'y reviendrai avec grand plaisir!
We were met by Sharon who explained everything about the light and spacious apartment in a great location.
I was really impressed with Sharon's warmth and responsiveness, especially given that we are 12 time zones apart! From the first steps of our reservation request to our last-minute check-in adjustments and arranging a taxi to the airport at the end of our stay, she was prompt and helpful for every question.
The neighborhood is delightful and well-located, on a quiet residential street just a short walk from everything we needed. We enjoyed several relaxing meals at nearby cafes, and were able to walk to the places we wanted to visit. Also the apartment is exactly as pictured, modern, bright and spacious. Unfortunately it is not well-ventilated, and we were there during unusually hot weather. Sharon went out and bought a powerful floor fan to make us more comfortable. She and her husband (who live next door) were friendly and helpful, and we felt very welcome.
MAHALO (Hawaiian for "thanks") Sharon!
We had wonderful three weeks in Sharon's apartment. The apartment was spacious and cheerful. The kitchen was well set up and had everything we needed. The washer and dryer were great.beds were comfortable. The heater worked the one day it was cool enough to need (website hidden) and Internet worked fine. The neighborhood was ideal: numerous grocery stores, pubs, restaurants, etc. The popular Leidseplein area was five minutes away. We'd recommend it in a heartbeat.
Sharon was there to welcome us when we arrived and was very obliging when it came to answering questions and letting us leave our luggage with her to collect later in the day when we checked out.
The apartment was great, with a large living area and great kitchen. We rented the next door apartment too (also Sharon's) and they were linked by a small courtyard which was great for our big group. The location was perfect for us, just 5 mins walk from Leidseplein.
We would gladly stay here again next time.

About the Host, Sharon
I am Sharon from Amsterdam. Together with my husband, I have a design studio and art gallery.
Next door to our studio / gallery we have 2 very nice apartments to rent out. Besides the great location, it's really unique because of the fantastic light and space. You don't see this often on ground floor apartments (especially not in Amsterdam!). I'd be very happy if we could make better use of this superb space and if more people could enjoy it too.
And to be honest, I discovered I just LOVE hosting! Currently i am working on integrating the art gallery with the apartments and make it my full time job. I love it because i meet so many nice people of around the world and everybody is so happy and relaxed (because away from home I guess ;-)). It's so rewarding to go that extra milage and make people even more happy.
I am very easy to reach and close by; our design studio is in the same building as the Helmers apartments. For more than 12 years we have been living in this neighborhood. We have 3 children and they love this area too, because it's a safe friendly ambience ('gezellig') and yet so close to all the (other) hot & cool places of Amsterdam!
I think Amsterdam is a perfect place to stroll around and 'get lost' in, but since I know the neighborhood well, i'd be more than happy to give some nice inside tips of great restaurants, bars and shops.
Just 5 minutes by bike, you find our other 2 apartments, 2 duplex apartments above each other in the middle of the Jordaan. Great location, nicely styled and very bright. a perfect place for a short holiday break.
My life motto is: "whatever you do, do it with love, or don't do it at all".
We love to create and make beautiful & good things happen. We love to eat good food with a nice glass of wine (at home or out), especially with good friends. We like traveling and have been to many places with (and without) our kids, but yet many more to explore!
I look forward to meet you!
