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 way to live Amsterdam for a few days, staying in your own apartment in a pleasant neighborhood - lively in the day and quiet at night

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 very much enjoyed staying at Sharon's apartment. The apartment was just as described in the listing and communication leading up to our stay was very good. The small touches like coffee and traditional Dutch cookies were very nice. Sharon was away on holiday during our visit, but she arranged for a very nice friend to meet us and show us around the apartment. Overall very positive experience!
Amazing stay in Amsterdam in Sharon's apartment! Everything we were looking for was in this place...clean, spacious and close to the city centre but still quiet. Loved the art hanging on the walls.
Highly recommended! Will Definitely be going back to stay.
Wir hatten eine fantastische Zeit in diesem großzügigen, hellem und ruhigen Apartment. Sharon ist eine freundliche Gastgeberin und sie begrüßte uns mit Wein und Waffeln. Auch Ihre Vorschläge haben wir gerne angenommen. Das Apartment liegt in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße direkt um die Ecke von Grachtengürtel. Geschäfte und gute Restaurants sind zu Fuß zu erreichen. Jordaan ist der schönste Stadtteil von Amsterdam.
Sharon met us on time with a few goodies and helpful advice. There were coffee and tea supplies which were much appreciated. The apartment is on a quiet street in a lovely neighborhood. There was a supermarket, a nice market for takeaway food, and numerous restaurants and bakeries all within an easy walk.
When we arrived in Amsterdam, we found that our phones didn't work (apparently it selected an incompatible network) and w come 't access the Internet no open WiFi). We went to the apartment to access the Internet from there in order to contact Sharon so that she could meet us there andet us in. Just as I was emaing her, Sharon arrived on her bike with treats and supplies! She thought that she should just go through apt and meet us when she didn't hear from us. That was great!
The apt is a duplex, very nice and airy. The spiral staircase to the upstairs bedroom is narrow, so don't plan on lugging large suitcases there. You just have to unpack on the main floor and take things up. Not a big deal, really.
The two bathrooms were welcome for the 4 of us (2 parents and 2 kids). There was plenty of room. The location was fantastic. Pretty, in the middle of the canal distinct, lots of shops and restaurants, and also a short walk to Dam Square. Sharon stayed in touch and even ordered a cab to take us to the airport!
This apt is a keeper and Sharon extended herself more than most hosts, in our experience.
We had a fab time at Artful Stay. Sharon was really welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The apartment is in a great location down a quiet street just around the corner from Anne Franks house with some lovely shops, cafe's and restaurants on the doorstep.
Many thanks for the wine, waffles and flowers Sharon.

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 Helmers apartments. 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!
