About this listing
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 ;)
My girlfriend and I stayed at Stacey's place for 5 nights in June during a heat wave. I asked Stacey if she had a fan and within a day, she had purchased one, which was really helpful and incredibly appreciated in the heat. The location of the apartment is excellent as it is in a pretty quiet part of town (except for the little kids playing in the park across the street) about 10-15 minute walk to either the Museumplein-Vondelpark or the inner canal belt. For the price, the apartment is a good value. There was some early morning construction that woke us up 2 times which was a little bit rough after partaking in a little bit of the Amsterdam night life. Stacey brought us up some croissants as an apology for the noise, which was a very kind gesture. We would stay in this apartment again.
We loved the flat, it was clean, comfortable, convenient, and quiet. Will recommend and certainly stay again upon return to Amsterdam.
Wonderful stay in Amsterdam. Great location, very clean and all amenities available. Apartment has nice layout with peaceful back deck. Communication with Stacey was perfect.
Eu e meu marido amamos nossos dias em Amsterdam!! O apartamento é uma graça, espaçoso, cama confortável e banheiro com ducha boa e quente! igual as fotos.
Tem um supermercado de um lado e um café do outro, na frente uma praça linda. A localização é ótima. Em Amsterdam vc faz tudo a pé, ou de bike independente da distância.
Não conhecemos a Stacey mas a irmã dela que mora embaixo foi super simpática, nos recepcionou no horário combinado e deu algumas dicas da cidade. Voltaríamos com certeza!!
Stacey et Jason ont un grand appartement sur une place très verdoyante bien desservie par le tram et un point que nous avons apprécié: une superette se trouve à proximité . Nous avons pu nous rendre facilement dans les différents quartiers que nous souhaitions visiter. C'est une maison typique, un peu surprenante au début mais avec quelques explications on comprend que c'est vraiment un habitat typique. Les photos correspondent exactement à l'appartement. Attention l'escalier ressemble à une échelle de meunier mais Stacey et Jason l'indiquent bien dans les messages qu'ils envoient avant l'arrivée. Par contre la salle de bains est un peu petite. Merci également pour toutes les précisions reçues quelques jours avant le voyage sur les sites intéressants à consulter pour bien se préparer . Ceci m'a été très utile. Nous gardons un très bon souvenir de ce séjour et de l'organisation de Stacey et Jason puisque les directives reçues par mail pour nous y rendre étaient très claires et sur place nous avons trouvé facilement Nicole. C'était la première fois que nous utilisions cette formule et nous en sommes très satisfaits. La possibilité de joindre Nicole était très rassurante en cas de besoin.
Our different contacts with Stacey were quite friendly. She answered quickly to all our questions.
Her appartment was as it is described on the site: comfortable (a little+ the terrace by sunny days quite appreciated
Un excellent séjour ! L'appartement est très bien situé, l'équipement convient parfaitement et l'accueil est chaleureux.

About the Host, Stacey&Jason
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.
