The Space

My cool apartment on the edge of the Jordan is suitable for a couple wishing to explore the bustling city from a central and fun base.
Although Westerstraat, Noordermarkt and the pretty little streets of the Jordaan are just a 10-minute walk away, you will find the neighborhood very hip and convenient as well.

There are some nice Mediterranean restaurants and lots of small shops to buy fresh groceries and nice wines. There is also a supermarket across the street. Within walking distance you will find the more luxurious shops of 'De 9 straatjes" and Rozengracht. Walk the other way and you'll find yourself in the amazing Westerpark. A green place around an old factory, nowadays filled with bars, clubs and other cultural venues.

The apartment is spacious and offers lots of comfort. At the front, the balcony overlooking the charming square 'Hugo de Grootplein'. The large balcony at the back offers an oasis of peace and in the afternoon and evening you can enjoy the sun lying on the 'fat boy'. The apartment has one bedroom, a spacious bathroom with a bath and a separate shower cabin and a large living room with open kitchen. See the photos for an impression.

If I have the opportunity I will take the guests on a small tour through the Jordan district. And if the weather permits even a boat trip through the canals is possible. Around the corner you can rent bikes. The tram stop is in front of my house and gets you anywhere in the city.

Enjoy Amsterdam from this amazing place!

  • Erik is a friendly, outgoing guy who was very accommodating with our early arrival. His apartment is an ideal place to stay and is well located. We can only endorse all the positive feedback he has received from other guests who have stayed in his place. Thanks again Eric for being so easy to deal with.

  • Nice location in walking distance to the city-centre.The appartment is very spacious, has a great light from the big windows and the bed is comfortable. We felt at home right away.
    Great with supermarket and bakery just across the street. The communication with Erik and the check-in was very smooth. Very recommendable place to stay!

  • I spent 12 days in Erik's apartment in Amsterdam. The apartment is just how it looks in the pictures. Erik was a great host and very easy to communicate with. No problems with meeting him, getting keys or leaving at the end of my vacation. Erik always made it easy. The location of the apartment is perfect to explore the city from. There is everything you need right across the street...grocery store, pharmacy, bakery, laundromat, scooter rental and cafe's, coffee shops and restaurants. Can't wait to visit the wonderful city of Amsterdam again. Thanks Erik!

  • Erik has a very nice, spacious and well appointed apartment. Great location in the Jordaan district. You don't need a car to get around and all the major attractions are within walking distance. There are nice eateries, pastry shops and a convenient store in his neighborhood. I recommend stopping by at the cafe/bar [quaint little place] where he works for a beer! I'd stay at his place again if I return for a visit.

  • We had a fantastic time in Erik's apartment! It was bright and clean with huge windows, and a lovely balcony overlooking the backyard. Everything was perfect, and Erik was a great host - he gave us some good maps and advice on places to eat and explore. It's in a cool neighbourhood with lots of restaurants and cafes, and an easy walk to the centre of town. We had an awesome stay in Erik's apartment and would definitely recommend it!

  • I had a pretty long stay in Amsterdam for 9 nights, so Erik's awesome apartment was the perfect place to feel at home during that time. The location is great as a home-base for any length of stay in the city. The apartment is only about 15 mins away from Central Station by taking a 10 min tram ride and then an easy 5 minute walk from the tram stop to his front door.

    The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos, so there won't be any disappointments in that regard. It was extremely clean, and comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could need, and the grocery store across the street makes it really easy to do some shopping. Although there are some great restaurants in the neighbourhood, and all over the city, I saved a ton of money by making some meals in the apartment. The massive king-sized bed was very comfortable and there's a huge tub and shower in the bathroom along with a washer and dryer, which was major bonus.

    Erik and I never actually met as he was away himself when I arrived, but his communication was so good leading up to my stay that I sort of feel like we did. He even sent me a message to make sure everything was fine half-through my visit. So, if you have any questions at all he will answer them quickly and with plenty of detail to make you feel at ease.

    This was my first time using airbnb, and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Thanks Erik!

  • Erik and his place made us wish we had more than one evening in Amsterdam. Erik is wonderful, warm, helpful, inviting and full of information. Very responsive, which really saved us. His place is gorgeous, immaculate and the Greek restaurant across the street was a delicious and memorable dinner. He left a boat load of useful information on the table for us and made our stay seamless and comfortable.

    Restorative and terrific experience. Thank you immensely. I highly recommend.

About
Hi, I am Erik. Born in 1981 and happy Amsterdammer. I love living in my house , but also spend a lot of time at my girlfriends place. I enjoy showing (international) guests the city, by foot, by bike or by boat. And of course I love to travel the world myself. Because of my travels, my many years living in Amsterdam and my knowledge of the city (also because I studied Urban Planning), I can give you good tips to make your time in Amsterdam more than worthwile!
