Interaction with Guests
We welcome people at arrival, and show them around and tell what's going on in town at that moment. After that, the place is yours!
The Pijp is vibrant, little streets filled with cafes and small restaurants, vintage boutiques and nearby great musea. But the Pijp is also a place with many places to relax and unwind. We like to share our favourite spots of these two worlds.
Public transport is around the corner.
No smoking, no loud music after 23.00 hours.
Fem made us extremely welcome and really helpful indeed. The local area was fantastic and it was a great neighbourhood to be in. The museums were a short (15 mins) walk away. We found lots of good cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. The house was very well equipped and nice to spend time in. The bathroom was especially fab! The groceries in the fridge and the wine and beer on arrival was a really welcome touch which we appreciated a lot. Thank you!
We had a wonderful stay at Fem's apartment. It was well equipped and comfortable, especially for our toddler as there were some toys left for her to play with. She was thoughtful enough to leave us a whole bag of goodies upon our arrival. She even stocked some items in the fridge for us! Sander was also quite hospitable and friendly. We will definitely stay here again if we ever visit Amsterdam again!
This is a great apartment and lives up to the listing. We spent 9 nights with 3 people and were all very comfortable. The apartment became our refuge from doing the tourist thing during the day. Everything in the apartment works well especially the WiFi.
The neighborhood is very safe and quiet and we slept well. De Pijp is a great area to stay since it is away from where most of the tourists stay. The location is great : near 2 major tram stops, a nice grocery and lots of bars and restaurants.
Fem does a great job helping you out and she did us several favors while we were there (like making reservations).
This is a really fantastic apartment and Fem went out of her way to make us feel at home.
We arrived in the evening and Fem had left us some delicious snacks, along with essentials like milk, so that we wouldn't have to think about shopping straight away. She has a daughter the same age as mine, and they had very kindly left us some age-appropriate toys for Esther to play with, which delighted her. We were also able to borrow a buggy which proved to be very useful.
Most importantly, I felt I could ask Fem anything as she is a very personable host, and had some great tips for family days out etc. My daughter got ill while we were there, and it felt very reassuring to know that Fem was around to offer advice if needed.
I would absolutley stay here again as the level of comfort and great location, added to the kindness of the host, made this a fantastic experience.
We spent the last week of December at Fem's. Her flat is everything you need for a short break in Amsterdam. It's very close from the city center. The apartment is neat and comfy with a great and cosy balcony, an overhead projector (and a huge collection of DVDs) and a fancy bathtub that turns into a Jacuzzi! Fem was there if we needed anything, warm and welcoming!
This was my first time in Amsterdam and my first time using airbnb and I can't recommend my experience highly enough. Fems apartment was perfect. The location was ideal for interesting local bars, cafes, shops and a market. It was a 20 minute walk to the centre of Amsterdam and about a 20 minute taxi to the airport. Fem was the perfect host, the apartment was very clean and I felt reassured that I could contact Fem if I needed anything. If I return to Amsterdam I would definitely stay at Fems place.

With my partner and daughter, we love to travel, and when we are not in Amsterdam we like other people to enjoy our house. We like to make our guests feel comfortable.
