Our stay at Geert's apartment was great!
The place looks exactly as advertised. Clean, neat and very homely. Kitchen and fridge was well stocked for us too.
He has a great Bose sound system and an awesome CD collection to go with it too. We made great use of it. :)
It's also very near to the tram stop, which makes it easy to go anywhere within Amsterdam.
The trip was very last minute but Geert was able to accommodate us. Didn't get the chance to meet Geert personally, but my friends had great things to say about him. Very friendly as per other reviewers have mentioned.
Definitely on the top of my list when it comes to places to stay in Amsterdam!
Geert was a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome. He was waiting for us with his wonderful dog Mickey and gave us all the information we needed on how to get around. His apartment was very clean and and very spacious at a perfect location. We will definitely try to book this apartment again when we visit Amsterdam. Geert was also very flexible with check in and check out times. We've been to Amsterdam a few times before and this was by far the best apartment in terms of location, cleanliness, comfort and host :)
We stayed at Geert's Apartment just for a few days but we really enjoyed our time there.
Everything was clean and prepared for us by the time we arrived.
Also Geert bought lot's of food & beverages for us - for free !!
All in all this is place is really recommendable.
We will come back.
Had a lovely time staying at Geerts place. A very warm and welcoming host with a great apartment right by Vondelpark. Everything you need or could possibly want for a perfect stay in Amsterdam.
We had a great time in Amsterdam! Geert was very nice easy and very welcoming!! He was very flexible as we arrived 2 hours as before planned and it was no problem to get into the apartment earlier! Thank you for having us!
Geert was an excellent host and his apartment was very well located and met our needs very well. Recommended.
Great location, lovely walk through vondelpark into the city.
Everything you need is close by, restaurants, grocery store, cafe, coffeeshop, restaurants. Stayed as a family with 3 kids including a baby and Geert made sure we were all comfortable.

down to earth, like to do sports, running and tennis, love music and walking my dog, last beautiful place i travelled was Bali and wouldn't mind to see South America, just seen an Irish movie called "the Angels share" (without subtitles!), the Big Lebowski and Pulp Fiction are my classics and Jimi Hendrix is allright too, cheers!
