About This Listing
This apartment is cool! Very spacious and stylishly designed -- it is the perfect place for a couple, and doable for 3 or 4 people. Your apartment (you would get the entire place for yourself (75 m2) is very close to the beautiful Vondelpark (3 minutes walk), the museum square (12 min walk) and the famous Leidseplein. And yet, you will find yourself in an authentic and laid back neighborhood of Amsterdam with lots of small boutiques, coffee places, cafes, bakeries an so on. The tram stop is right around the corner.
The apartment is part of a newly refurbished, antique building (1890s). It comprises a very large living room with beautiful, old wooden floor; a spacious modern kitchen; a nicely designed bedroom; a bathroom and a small balcony with a seating area.
The open kitchen has a refrigerator, microwave/oven, dishwasher, and stovetop – it is a very comfortable kitchen to cook in. You will find everything you need in the supermarket around the corner (or the organic supermarket just down the street), and the Ten Kate market is close by as well for an authentic (grocery) shopping experience.
Of course there is Wifi!
The 3rd and 4th people can sleep downstairs in the modern sleeping couch.
The apartment is very well lit by natural light (especially in the mornings and evenings) but that is the reward for the 3 flights of stairs -- and while smoking inside is not permitted, there is a terrace/balcony where you can go outside, hangout and enjoy the peaceful courtyard, and smoke if you are into that.
Clean sheets and towels are all included. You will have a 2013 Amsterdam guidebook at your disposal and I will be able to help with suggestions depending on what you like – as I will personally greet you and make sure that you can stay in touch with me throughout your stay. My check in times are extremely flexible.
There is a great variety of restaurants (high end to low end; Ethiopian to Dutch), great terraces along the canals, yoga studios, neighborhood squares and little known attractions such as the ancient Dutch stables. The Vondelpark is great for hanging out or jogging, and the open-air theatre features great (free) dance, theatre and music in the summer. Just beyond the park, you will find the Museum Square, the Concertgebouw, the high end shopping area around the P.C. Hooftstraat, and lots more.
This apartment offers you 2 free Museum Passes as well!! The 2 passes get you into the museums for free ! AND you can skip the queue! You will save around 30 euros per museum (depending on the price).
!!!Please be aware that if you like to skip the very long queue at The Anne Frank House as well you have to reserve online which costs you only 0,50 euro cent!!! Please go to their website to order online tickets and use the the option "Museum jaarkaart".
Oud-West is the city’s snug living room. Quiet, handsome residential areas alternate with bustling shopping streets. This is an area where Amsterdam residents from all walks of life live alongside one another in fraternal harmony. Here, you'll find street markets as well as elegant mansions, cultural meeting points and cafes.
If you want to stay in a modern but very comfortable apartment in the heart of this authentic neighborhood and right near the best park in the country, this is the place to stay for you!

Fred is the best, there is nothing else to add.
The apartament is fantastic, close to Voldenpark, one of the most beautiful place in the city.
I have been there very well.
Wir sind sehr freundlich und unkompliziert begrüßt worden, alles war so in der Wohnung wie im Internet beschrieben. Wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt, die Küche hat alles was wir brauchten, so dass wir uns gerne lekker gekocht haben. Die Wohnung ist ruhig, die Nachbarn haben wir etwas gehört, aber das war wirklich gute Musik...

Fred was very helpful but not intrusive or pushy. He was available always when needed.
Apartment at Pieter Langendijkstraat, Amsterdam was exactly as we expected it. Photographs of apartment were absolutely adequate.
According to our judgment place was excellent. Close enough and very well communicated with very centre of Amsterdam but quiet to recover quickly after day of excitement in the town to meet next day of challenges, that Amsterdam is so full of!
I had a great stay at the apartment. It was spacious, welcoming and clean.The neighborhood ist charming and a beautiful park is nearby. Fred was very helpful and everything in the place worked perfectly. I will certainly refer my friends to this place when traveling that way!
I spent 5 days at the apartment and everything was great. The place is cute, clean and comfortable and I recommend Fred, the communication with him was really quick and easy all the time. He helped us a lot with any doubt we had. Tram 1 takes you from the apartment to the city centre and the main atractive places in Amsterdam in 10 minutes. :)

About the Host, Fred & Wietske
I am a 15 year resident of Amsterdam, after moving here from the Boston area to discover my dutch roots. I have come to love my city, and it's hidden charms, and am frequently on the move. My sport and my passion is ultimate frisbee, and I spend a great deal of my time organizing one of the world's biggest and baddest ultimate frisbee tournaments. I am the type of host that likes to get involved when you need some guidance or company, and leave you to it when you want to be the intrepid explorer. Happy trails!
