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...

  • AMAZING apartment! Perfect lighting, VERY spacious and we were lucky to have great weather in which we could enjoy the lovely patio! Perfect location, walking distance to almost everyplace in the city, we will definitely come back next time we're in Amsterdam! Flat is beautifully decorated with lovely art pieces. Sharon and her husband were very helpful with anything we needed, communication with Sharon before the trip was very convenient and received a prompt response to all our queries :) Very very very recommended!

  • We had a great stay in Sharon appartment. The place is full of light, beautifully decorated, very confortable and cosy. Well equiped, the appartment has everything you need and it is located in a wonderful neighbourhood just a few blocks from the park and Amsterdam's main atraccions. There are a a lot of very nice restaurants to go out at nigh and Sharon art galery is located on the same building( in the appartment you will see some wonderful pictures and paintings from the galery.) Sharon is a great host and makes your stay the best. We hope to come back to the Venice of the North to Sharon wonderful appartment.

  • Hosts ware wonderful! They greeted us at the flat as soon as we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed. The flat was perfect; clean, modern and in a great area. It was under a 5 minute walk from center where we arrived and close to some great shopping and cafe's. We will absolutely stay here again!

  • Sharon is very helpful and responsive.
    We had a lovely time in the apartment. It is very well located. The decor is really nice, the furniture for our number (7), the bedding is really real (we slept very very well), everything needed for cooking is available.
    We also found the patio very convenient, we will be back there in summer to enjoy it fully :-)
    Sharon a big thank you

  • Let's start from the end - next time we're in Amsterdam, Sharon's apartment is the place we're staying. That says it.

    Sharon's a gracious and warm host, made us feel at home just as we arrived. She also allowed us to check in early which was really helpful. It really does look like she loves what she's doing. And being inside a former art studio does have its charm!

    The apartment is amazing. It's beautiful, warm and spacious. It looks nice in the pictures and nicer in reality. It has a charm that we can't explain in words. It's close to the center, and we were able to walk Amsterdam by foot everyday, which turned out to be great. It would be a shame if we had to take a tram to get to the apartment - it's much more fun this way. And besides that, it's one of the nicer neighborhoods in Amsterdam. Just nice and quiet but not too quiet, safe and nice.

    The bed is great. The floor heating is great. The porch is great. The food table is great. Everything is great.

    Again with the thing that matters most - we can't imagine staying anywhere else next time we're in Amsterdam :)

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 apartments and I live 2 blocks away. 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. On top of that we recently are renting out our fantastic holiday house in Turkey, close to the Lesbos (Greek) Island. The villa is fantastically located at the sea at the Idyllic Island Cunda, close to Ayvalik. The villa itself is very bright and comfortable. It offers all the high standards we like ourselves when we are on a holiday. We have good people (my sister in law) looking after the villa when we are not there. Reassuring your holiday will be perfect. 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 our kids, but yet many more to explore! I look forward to meet you! warm regards, Sharon
