Location, location, location. Maybe the best thing about our cozy studio is it’s quiet location right in the city center. We call it the “Suite Singel.”
It is situated at the basement level of our residence home. The house was built in 1640 and we live in the upper floors. Kerry is a yoga teacher and photographer and Fabian is a lower school music teacher.
After welcoming you and explaining how things work in the studio, we give you the keys and you can enjoy the privacy of your own place in Amsterdam.

A walk out the door leads you to 17th century Amsterdam--even if it’s raining, it’s a beautiful place to be! And when the sun shines, you can use the two folding lounge chairs (stored under the beds) which you can place under the tree in front of the house and watch the world go by in the canal…
--Note; for King´s Day. Christmas and New Years minimum 3 nights required.
We are on the edge of the “Negen Straatjes”, or “9 Little Streets”, which is full of cafés, restaurants, and shops. The Negen Straatjes has quickly become the most modern and hip area of the city…there is more in Amsterdam than just coffee shops and the red light district! Within a 10 minute walk you can reach all these sites:
* The flower market (3 min!)
* The Dam Square--the center of the old city (3 min)
* Pedestrian shopping streets of the Kalverstraat and Leidsestraat
* Leideseplein--full of restaurants and outdoor cafes and bars
* Centraal Train Station (3 trams stops away, 20 minn walk)
* Van Gogh Mueseum
* Spiegelstraat Antique and Art Galleries
* Stadelijk Modern Art Museum
* Anne Frank House
* Red Light District
* Many many stores, restaurants, bars, and of course "coffee shops"
We’ve lived in Holland for over 10 years (Kerry is from the US and Fabian is Argentinean). We know Amsterdam well and we will be happy to help you find what you are looking for during your stay. We speak English, Spanish, Dutch, and we can squeeze out some Italian and French if needed.
We’ve been renting the studio for several years now and we have a good idea of what people like about it. It’s not a huge spacious apartment with sweeping views…it’s a cozy little studio where you will have a quiet night’s sleep after a day out exploring. We do provide coffee and tea making facilities, however, we are not able to provide breakfast.
We have been working since the beginning to be as eco-conscious as possible. And just so you know…this also means we have only a 15-liter water heater. You have a very hot shower for about 8 minutes, wait another 15 minutes and it’s ready to go again.
No smoking please.
Das Apartment war so, wie beschrieben. Es war sauber und alles Notwendige war vorhanden. Die Lage war super und wir konnten alles zu Fuß erkunden.
Firstly, Kerry & Fabian are great! They were really understanding when our flight was delayed by 4hours and made alternative arrangements for us to collect the keys.
The apartment was as described, cosy and well located, approx 15-20 walk to all major tourist attractions, restaurant, shops and bars and comprising of the required mod cons such as bed, fridge, iron, kettle, tv, bathroom etc.
The only thing I would note is that apartment is located close to the road so you will hear passing pedestrian and vehicle noise but that is to be expected.
All in all a great apartment which is well located. Would definitely stay again.
Lovely time, perfect location - we walked everywhere (zoo, brewery, museums, red light district, Amstel river, the lot!)
Great space - more compact and a bit darker than the pictures let on but we weren't in much anyway.
Definitely recommend :)
We were very happy with our stay at the studio. Kerry met us when we checked in and was extremely friendly and helpful, providing recommendations of places to go nearby. The location could not have been better - right amongst the canals and on one of the best streets in the area. We were surrounded by bars, cafes and restaurants and could have spent the whole weekend without walking for more than 5 minutes! The studio is very compact but perfectly comfortable and warm, despite the low temperatures outside. Everything was well cleaned and in good condition. We would definitely recommend to a friend and stay here again on another trip to Amsterdam.
Thanks again Kerry and Fabian for being such great hosts.
Fabian was very nice and gave us good recommendations about the area, including restaurants, bakeries and coffee shops. The apartment was very clean, in a great location.
The drawback was that we were in Amsterdam in April, and the apartment was very cold. There is a small heater in the apartment, but it does very little. Additionally, the hot water in the shower only lasts about 5min before it runs out, and you have to wait 15min for it to replenish.
Kerry était disponible et patient pour nous recevoir tard le soir de notre arrivée. Le studio correspond exactement à sa description. L'isolation sonore n'est pas fantastique et peut gêner certains du fait que le studio donne directement sur la rue, mais nous n'avons pas eu de dérangements majeurs. Bien que le ballon d'eau chaude soit petit, il a largement suffit pour deux douches raisonnables. Localisation parfaite pour visiter le centre historique de la ville, je le recommande pour un court séjour à Amsterdam, hôte très sympathique.
My partner and I had a lovely time in Amsterdam. The location was great, it was central and everything was within 5~15 minutes walk. The suite was great, it has everything you could need. Kerry was very nice and gave us a heads up on the local area. I would recommend anyone staying here, and I would definitely visit again.
Thank you to Kerry and Fabian.
