Be welcome @ my typical 1930s Amsterdam, two-room apartment just off Overtoom and Vondelpark..
The apartment is on the ground floor, very colorful, comfortable and quiet. It has a great garden at the back - good for sunbathing, a morning coffee in the sun, or an outside lunch or dinner (well, not in winter).
The apartment is approximately 60 m2 large, with a living room, a kitchen/dining space and a separate bedroom.
Kitchen: functional and 'gezellig': it has a gas stove and electric oven, a dish washer, an espresso machine and many pots, pans etc. The kitchen has a dining table, seating 8.
Bathroom: bathtub with shower, toilet, washbasin.
Bedroom: a very comfortable (AUPING) double bed (180x210). The room is wonderfully lit by cosy Case de Cousin Paul lights.
My apartment is situated at a very quiet square surrounded by chestnut trees, with hardly any motorized traffic. A food and wine store is opposite the house, daily opened until 22.00 - except for Tuesdays, when it's closed.
The bustling avenue 'Overtoom' as well as the neighborhood shopping streets J.P. Heijestraat, Amstelveenseweg, Kinkerstraat and Mercatorplein are within walking distance. They offer many good and fashionable shops (second hand, clothes, furniture, food, wine etc), eateries (from Ethiopian to Mediterranean, Dutch, Thai and Italian), espresso-bars and cafes. A large Gym (David Lloyd) is a 5-minute walk, just like the entrance of Vondelpark.
The place is a 10-minute cycle or tram ride from the city centre (Leidse Square), the famous Jordaan district, Stedelijk Museum, Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum and Concertgebouw.
There are several supermarkets nearby, including small organic supermarkets. At the end of the Overtoom is the fantastic supermarket 'Marqt', wich supplies some of the best fresh food, fruit, vegetables, fish, meat and bread of the city. Kinkerstraat has a daily street market (Ten Kate markt).
The apartment is a 2-minute walk from the tram stop with direct trams to the city centre and Central Station. The apartment is 15 minutes from Schiphol Airport by train and tram connection, via Lelylaan station.
You will have the apartment all for yourself.
All facilities included: washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator, coffee machine, high speed wireless internet access, built-in oven.
Clean linen and towels provided at your arrival.
Please note that this is a non-smoking apartment.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact me and I'll come back to you asap.
We spent a lovely weekend at Stef's place. Stef is a very nice guy, he was always ready to help us. He was also very flexible with checkin/checkout.
The flat is exactly the same as the one you see in the pictures, a lovely place, very cosy and calm. It is not in the center of Amsterdam but public transport are very efficient. We have rent bikes, it was the best way to discover Amsterdam.
The flat is perfect for 2 or 3 persons. I highly recommend Stef's place and I'm looking forward to staying there again very soon.
Even during the booking process, I knew Stef would be a great host. He was very polite and willing to make suggestions to any questions. The home was perfect! Clean, bright, with everything needed for our stay.
I am a light sleeper and even during the Queen's Day in Amsterdam we didn't hear any noise! We absolutely recommend Stef's place.
We stayed at Stefs place for 5 nights and it was absolutely lovely!. The apartment was clean, cozy and beautifully decorated. All the amenities you need is available and the city center is 15 min away.
Stef was very nice and helpful and we really enjoyed our stay. Would definately recommend this place anytime!
We were pleasantly surprised with Stef's charming place- clean, tidy, tasteful and in a great location!
From the flat, you can get to the centre of Amsterdam in 15 mins by tram, and it takes only 20 minutes from and to the airport.
Around the area you can find many places to go, which are less touristy and more authentic. Stef suggested some places for us to visit which were very interesting!
All in all a great experience!!
We recommend everyone!!
Stef and his sister are very pleasant, cool people to deal with!
We look forward to coming back.
We stayed four nights in stef's appartment and we really enjoyed it! Stef was very helpful, cared about us and showed us good places to go in Amsterdam. The appartement is nice and clean everything is like in the description. The doublebed is really big and the sofabed sleeps as comfortable as a normal bed. The living is spacious and there is also a good kitchen. Overall a great place to stay in Amsterdam! Thank you Stef.
