Lisa und Peter Paul sind wirklich ausgezeichnete Gastgeber. Im super eingerichteten und gemütlichen Apartment fühlten wir uns sofort wohl. Auch die sehr zentrale, doch ruhige Lage ist ein ganz großer Pluspunkt. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder, besser kann man in Amsterdam kaum wohnen!
Excellent place central to all places of interest. Really enjoyed our stay. Thanks for your hospitality.
This was a lovely place to stay Lisa and Peter Paul were welcoming hosts and genuinely happy to help in any way, with local information, bags, and phoning for taxi to the airport. The location is very good, though central, it's a fantastic area to wander around, with lovely canal walks and beautiful architecture, and plenty good places to eat nearby. The appartment was nicely furnished, very quiet and comfortable. Lisa kindly provided lovely muffins on the first morning. Though quiet, light sleepers might need earplugs as the bells of the nearby Westerkerk ring through the night.
Nous avons offert ce séjour à nos parents qui sont revenus ravis. Accueil parfait de la part de Lisa et Peter, appartement confortable proche de toutes les commodités et lieux de visite.

Peter Paul was the most fantastic host that we could ask for: kind, attentive and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble (he didn't even mind when one of us had to wake him in the early hours to be let into the apartment which was wonderful)! The apartment itself is in a great location and was cosy and comfortable - the bed was excellent, the bathroom spacious and clean and the facilities everything that we could ask for (including a nespresso machine and capsules). Peter Paul also brought us a bottle of wine and flowers for our arrival and we were greeted on our first morning with breakfast fresh from the bakery left outside our door! A thoroughly enjoyable stay - we couldn't recommend it highly enough!
Best airbnb location I have visited. Immediately felt like home. Very very clean and high quality linens and towels. Similar to what I have experienced in a luxury boutique hotel. Very convenient location, 15 minute walk to Central Station, large grocery store two blocks away, many of my favorite restaurants only 5-10 minute walk. Has great amenities such as mini-fridge, mini-washer/dryer, stove, and dishes. Very much enjoyed the Nespresso machine :) I would highly recommend and would love to stay here again.
Our stay at Lisa and Peter Paul's apartment was excellent. Everything we needed was there and working really well.
Lisa and Peter Paul were the best hosts. Always ready and in a good mood to answer all kinds of questions. They live right next door, what makes it easier to reach them.
The neighbourhood is also excellent. There are supermarkets nearby and trams tha will take you anywhere in Amsterdam.
It is importante to know that there is a big stairway to the apartment, but, one more time, they were great and helped us up with the luggage.
We will definetely stay there again whenever we go back to Amsterdam!
We are a Dutch couple who live happily in Amsterdam. We rent out a seperate apartment with private entrance in this wonderful historical building on the Herengracht since two years. Peter Paul is a self employed consultant in the field of communication and social change. Lisa is product designer, studies art history and enjoys providing culinary services.The apartment has a homy and cosy feel, yet is modern and neat.
We love travelling, photography, the outdoors, biking, sailing and skiing.
