About this listing
Authentic two floor apartment (built in 1874) in a child friendly neighbourhood in the Centre of Amsterdam (accross the street from Artis, Amsterdam's famous Zoo). Our apartment has three bedrooms and has orginal details (150m2). It is located in the "Plantage area" of Amsterdam and is close to several major attractions, such as the Zoo, the Resistance Museum, the Portuguese Synagoge, the Jewish Historical Museum, the Hortus Botanicus Amsterdam (one of the oldest gardens in the world), the Tropen Museum and close to several parks. Our apartment is suberbly located near the shopping area of the Rembrandstplein and the Dam, while at the same time the area where we live is a bit laid back and not overflown with tourists.
Our apartment has a living room and a well equiped and very up to date kitchen ensuite, a luxurious bathroom, a separate master bedroom in the back of the apartment and two bedrooms upstairs.
We have a desktop computer with high speed ADSL access and an extensive library filled with books in English, both fiction and non fiction.
We have cable televsion featuring over 80 US tv stations, as well as a DVD player.
We have a house cleaning service every week, and will have the house cleaned during the exchange and when you leave.

It is surrounded by many sights, bars and restaurants with good transport links. Artis Zoo is just 100 metres from the hotel, and the Flea Market and Opera House are both 400 metres away. The Maritime Museum and Van Gogh Museum are two kilometres away.
About the Host, Dorine
I am a tax lawyer, living in Amsterdam with my two daughters Florence and Josephine. Have just incorporated my own tax advisory firm ((website hidden)). Love to drink wine, play tennis, cook, hang out with my friends. I have studied at the University of Amsterdam and know the city by heart.
I have done a fair amount of home swaps and discovered AirBNB when I went on a biking holiday and wanted to spend a few days in Copenhagen.
The apartment that I rent out is filled with American and Uk literature.
My most favourite city is New York, but I also love Helsinki and Barcelona.
