The location of this apartment was fantastic. We hardly used any public transport since it was walking distance to everywhere.

This is a great apartment in a great location. Within easy walking distance to everything in central Amsterdam. It is a quiet location on the beautiful canals and there are lots of good restaurants within a few minutes walk. We hired bicycles (10 Euros per day) from a shop just five minutes from the apartment and spent a wonderful day exploring Amsterdam. A beautiful apartment in a beautiful city!! Highly recommended.

Great location.

EXTRA'S:
The apartment is showing photgraphic 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... IF you happen to fall in love with one of the art pieces and you would like to buy one, we are happy to offer you 1 night for free in our apartment!*
(* this offer is only for the + € 1.000 art works, for the lower priced artworks, we give 50% of 1 night back).

  • We had a great time in Amsterdam! This apartment was located right off one of the canals and very close to shopping, restaurants and bars. The apartment was very nice and we loved staying here. We had 2 couples on our trip and we each had our own bedroom and bathroom so it made it very easy to get ready each day. Sharon the host met us at the apartment when we arrived and was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. I will be staying here again the next time we are in Amsterdam. Five Stars!

  • After booking different hotels on each of our many visits to Amsterdam, we have finally found the perfect place to stay! Sharon's apartment is beautifully and comfortably decorated, ideal for 2 couples, located in a great neighborhood close by to public transit and all of the city's attractions (close walking distance to some, like the Anne Frank House, Foam Photography Museum and canal boat trips). Further, Sharon is so responsive and helpful, she's like having a personal concierge (she advised us by text message on nearby fitness centers and airport transport options on a day when Obama was visiting and roads were blocked). Highly recommended!

  • My friends and I stayed at Sharon's apartments in Jordaan over a period of 8 days.

    Our stay was absolutely delightful. The apartments were nice, cozy, equipped with everything that a home needs and had a very homely feeling to them. What you see in the pictures is exactly what the place looks like.. Clean, well lit and nicely done. I think the best part was the beautiful view from the roof of the second apartment!

    The apartment is at a great location. A few steps from Prinsengracht, 10-15 min walking distance from Dam Square and about 15 min by train to Rembrandtplein. In addition, there are a lot of nice places around the apartment to hang out. Even getting to and fro from the airport was convenient.

    Sharon was a great host! She was extremely patient with me during the booking process and was quick to respond to my emails and any questions that I had.

    My friends and I got the feeling of living at home, rather than living at a hotel. Which is what we were looking for.

    I highly recommend Sharon's apartments for anyone looking at places to stay in Amsterdam!

  • Very nice, clean and spacious apt in the heart of Amsterdam. Sharon is a really good host! If you're traveling to Amsterdam, consider this apt.

  • Perfect location, perfectly clean, perfect communication , loved the house we had a ball

    February 2014
  • This place is great! I can't recommend it highly enough. My coworker and I stayed at the apartment while we were in town for a conference for about 5 nights and having some local digs made the experience wonderful.

    When we arrived, we were greeted by Sharon who gave us the keys, and a tour of the place. Coincidentally we shared similar work backgrounds, so we chatted for a bit. She's a friendly, communicable host and I would be happy to stay here again when I return to Amsterdam.

    While we didn't spend a lot of time at the apartment, we felt at home staying here. Modern furniture, artwork on the walls, spacious. Altogether it was a very comfortable, cosy retreat from hectic days spent absorbing learning, networking, and partying like it's 1999.

    Location-wise it's perfect. The Jordaan is my favorite neighborhood in Amsterdam, full of picturesque canals, beautiful homes and neat little boutiques. The apartment is within easy walking distance of the entire Centrum, as well as to the Westergasfabriek, where our conference was being held. Tram lines are within a 10 minute walk too, should you be lazy.

    Enjoy your stay at this apartment. You won't be disappointed.

  • Sharon's place was nice! Right in the middle of it all, it was very conveniently located but off the main streets so it was quiet. The flat was spacious, bright & clean, beds were comfortable & Sharon answered any questions or concerns promptly. Sharon left wine & a very helpful guide to the city & was super great about allowing us to check in early.

    We didn't have hot water in the upstairs bathroom but it wasn't a huge deal, the downstairs was fine. The electricity tripped a couple times too but again, not a big deal. The box was inside the house so it was a quick fix. Overall, I recommend the flat whole-heartedly.

    Tip: Be aware that the stairs in these flats (not just at Sharon's but consistently around Amsterdam) are almost ladders...extremely steep with narrow steps. We were in town for a conference & had a lot of heavy luggage...I was impressed that we managed with no injuries. hahaaa

  • Great place, great location, great host. Stayed here for 2 nights in January - there was 5 of us in total. The apartment was clean, spacious and in a perfect location by the canal. Sharon was really helpful and replied very quickly to all our enquiries. Would definitely stay here again

    February 2014
  • Bright, spacious and clean 2 story apartment. The apartment had everything we needed and was in a great location. The apartment was a little noisy when walking around on the floorboards, we all were awake similar times so no issue within our group. Sharon had a lovely welcome gift for us ready for our arrival which was a very nice touch. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone.

About
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
