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...

I stayed at Sharons apartment for three days in June. It is pretty much the best location you can get in Amsterdam at that price and comfort. It gives you great value for the money you pay. The apartment is walking distance from almost every place that you'd want to visit. The apartment itself is fantastically designed and a great space. And Sharon is a great host!!!! Highly highly recommended for location, comfort, space, everything!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sharon's apartment. It was exactly as described and Sharon was most helpful in answering our questions about Amsterdam and arranging a taxi to the airport for two of our party. We would definitely recommend the apartment to all who inquire and would rent it again when next we visit Amsterdam.
Sharon's apartment is a visual treat! One feels like you are entering an art gallery. As appealing as it is visually , it's equally bright and comfortable to live in. The best part is the amount of light that comes in which makes the place extremely cheerful .
The apartment is well situated with grocery stores around the corner and bakeries/ restaurants nearby .
It's very central with Vondelpark and Rijks/Van Gogh and other museums within walking distance. just 3-4 minutes away one can get into a canal bus tour .
Sharon in a great host. She is very easy to communicate with, she was there to welcome us and show us around . We were welcomed with wine and Belgian cookies. She also has a ready reckoner of places to visit and a map showing us the locations .
We had a great time in her apartment
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.
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 apartment next door felt bigger and the kitchen was a bit better, but this had a bedroom with 2 double beds in it (as well as another bedroom with a double bed), so choose the apartment which best suits your needs, they're both great. The location was perfect for us, just 5 mins walk from Leidseplein.
We would gladly stay here again next time.
Sharon is a very very nice host. The directions from airport were very good, the position on the apartment is excellent for a tourist.
The apartment itself look extremly nice, full of light, spacious, clean, fashionable.
I strongly recommend this booking.
the apartment is very nice and well decorated, is very spacious and well equipped, is also very well located, with good dining options, market, in just a few blocks away. the proprietress is very attentive and helpful, definitely a great option in Amsterdam!
May 2015 We spent 5 nights with Sharon. The location was away from the madding crowd in the Dam Place,but Amsterdam is very walkable. The apt is also very near the VondelPark. The apt is unique in Amsterdam because it is groundfloor (no stairs) and has 2 bedrooms, each with access to a separate shower and toilet. The apt. is roomy and very light-filled as advertised. The kitchen has a complete set of resources. Although we didn't require much contact, Sharon was available when we needed her.
Overall, a great location, and lots of space.

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 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.
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!
