Built in 1890 this Amsterdam crooked house is located on a peaceful green square but smack in the city centre with all important marks within walking distance. Studio in local area with a large private terrace. Multiple tram lines and 24/7 taxi line.
We are proud home owners of our 'crooked old Amsterdam style house' located on Frederiksplein, an oasis of peace and green but right smack in the city center.
Typical about this Amsterdam property is that it is narrow but goes back about 25 meters, which gives you surprisingly more space than when viewed from the front.
Walking up the narrow staircase you arrive on the first floor and our lovely studio apartment. (We also rent out the top two floors, see other listing)
THE STUDIO APARTMENT
There is twin bed and comfortable sofabed(both 140x200cm) which are divided by antic glass sliding doors.
Lots of sun on the terrace(15m2) for a breakfast, lunch or BBQ! We have recently fully renovated the kitchen and bathroom.
Access to your apartment with private everything: bathroom and kitchen and large terrace. Fast WiFi. Only thing you share is the outside main entrance, up the staircase you'll find two doors with locks, one leads to your apartment.
Interaction with Guests
We always try to do a personal check in.
During your stay we are a knock/e-mail/phone call away and very much respect your privacy to make sure you feel at home. =)
Our location is awesome. Peaceful green square but right around the corner of the city centre. And at the edge of a lovely local district called "de Pijp".
Literally just a walk into the craziness: Turn right onto Utrechtsestraat a "posh" shopping street with nice boutiques, shops, bars and restaurants. At the end is Rembrandt square a busy nightlife area, leading into the main shopping area, red light district etc.
Go towards the Pijp, stroll towards the major museums; Take a walk over the "Albert Cuyp" outdoor market and you'll end up on Museum square!
Everything is within walking distance. If your feet might get tired and you are not so much of a cyclist, there are several tram lines that stop right on our square. (tram 4, 7 & 10)
Amsterdam is one of the most expensive cities for street parking(€5,- an hour) If you are planning to drive into Amsterdam we strongly suggest Ajax Arena Parking garage for €8,- a day. (Free public transport ticket back into town)
We make sure to email you with detailed information with useful links on how to get to our place by cab or public transportation.
Also 24/7 taxi line right on the square!
Other Things to Note
Fresh linen and towels are included. Also a hairdryer. Basics toiletries; shampoo, shower gel etc provided.
Please pack light! As a lot of Amsterdam houses, ours also has a steep narrow staircase. Please take this in consideration when booking. And then allow us to help carry up your luggage!
We do allow a friendly smoke but please open a window or terrace door on doing so.
Our house is noisy please respect our neighbors.
But do not let this stop you from having a great time! We hope you feel at home and enjoy Amsterdam like one of us ;)
Dies war unser erster Besuch in Amsterdam und es war echt großartig!
Stacey war sehr hilfsbereit und hat uns im Vorfeld viele hilfreiche Informationen geben! Danke nochmal dafür (vor allem was das P+R angeht)! Das Einchecken hat dank Stacey's Schwester, die uns in Empfang genommen hat, auch sehr gut geklappt.
Wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt, die Wohnung war sehr sauber und die Lage ist super. Alles ist schnell zu erreichen und in der Gegend gibt es eh alles was man für einen schönen Aufenthalt braucht. Fazit: wir kommen gerne wieder!
The description and photos were very accurate. The apartment was spotless, and very well located, close to all sights.
We hired bikes for the full duration of our stay and cycled around many new places, this was our 5th visit to the city but the bikes enabled us to really get around.
we really enjoyed the flexibility of having an apartment, and really enjoyed the outside decking area as the weather was good.
The flat was very clean, we felt so at home in the flat and the flowers were a wonderful touch. Nicole was wonderful and helped me with my lost luggage and was always available to help when needed. The only thing I had a issue with, because I am such a light sleeper, was the fact that the drapes in the bedroom were white and let in lots of light, which is very nice for early risers. Location was great and the overall experience was great, I would recommend this place.
We were greeted very nicely by Nicole, she even offered to carry the suitcase. The apartment is clean and offers everything you need. The kitchen is super equipped. The bed was very comfortable, and the morning views of the school children was very entertaining.
The location of the flat is wonderful at a park and the access to the Centre by tram is more than perfect and close by.
We felt completely comfortable.
Left and right next to the entrance of the apartment you can find a coffeeshop ( I mean coffee!) with snacks or the Albert Heijn supermarket.
The email contact with the landlords was easy, very helpful and friendly. Lots of details and information ahead! They are also flexible, if there is anything you need to know in advance, just ask!
We recommend this accommodation very much!
We has a great time. Stacey and Jason's place was exactly as described and pictures. Perfect location for good food and easy walks to all the main sites of Amsterdam. They were incredibly helpful since we were traveling with our little son. They got us a baby cot and set up our taxi for us on our return to the airport. I highly recommend staying here for your visit.

Jason is a canadian/dutch game producing entrepreneur. Stacey is a creative designer and barista with chinese/surinamese origins. Both raised in Amsterdam we're a hardworking, social, caring and adventurous couple.
Stacey takes care of people around her, enjoys making a perfect cup of java and cooking surinamese soul food, while Jason 'the film critic' worked in asia a lot and is a sports fanatic who has a wide knowledge of almost everything and can share all this with you in amazing stories.
We live between Isle Wight, UK and Amsterdam with our baby girl, weird cat and idiotic dog. Love to watch movies and enjoy the company of family and close friends. And are proud house owners of our 'crooked old Amsterdam style house' located on an oasis of peace and green, but right smack in the city center. Here on AirBNB we offer typical Amsterdam apartments and very much like the concept of guests enjoying their stay in Amsterdam, local style. So feel free to have a friendly smoke!
If you have an early arrival or late departure, no problem. We are not a hotel and so are very flexible! During our absence Stacey's younger sister Nicole takes care of our guests and check ins.
