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.
Our apartment is a located the Plantage Area. This unique area is typified by its luscious greenery, space and water. Besides natural history, the area is a mine of information for science and technology and the origins of this part of the city.
The plantage area is a beautiful green area in the old centre of Amsterdam, originally designed in the 17th century as a garden called 'Plantage'. 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.
I stayed at Dorines Apartments with 5 friends and we had a very nice time.
There is everything you need and it was much bigger than we've expected. It also is very clean and central.
All in all there was nothing we could complain about :)
Dorine nos ofreció su casa tal cuál aparece en las fotos. Su madre nos recibió cuando llegamos y nos explicó todo en detalle con mucha amabilidad. La casa es muy amplia, y el barrio es muy tranquilo y agradable. Hay un tranvía que para muy cerca, y en 15 minutos paseando alcanzas el centro de la ciudad. Ideal para una familia con niños.
my name is philipp, i'm 23 years old and i stayed at dorine's apartment for silvester with 6 friends. we had enough space, everything was clean, well furnitured and worked perfectly fine.
we never met dorine during our stay, but her mother showed us everything when we checked in and all the other stuff we could easily look up in the nice email dorine sent me a few days before our arrival.
also all the other communication with dorine was no problem at all. she always responded very fast and friendly on emails, calls or messages.
all in all we had a very, very nice time visiting amsterdam!!!
greez and best wishes from vienna :D
Dorine is a very nice and kind host! My friends and I were lucky to stay at her apartment. We enjoyed our holidays in Amsterdam and our stay at Dorine’s apartment! It is good old-stylized and spacious apartment, highly comfortable for a group of 5-6. It has a well equipped kitchen with a big table and highly comfortable living room where you can relax or just chilling with your friends all together. Indeed you can feel there like at home and find everything you need for comfortable staying.
It is located in a beautiful area and indeed with a nice view from the living room (view of the Artis Zoo). It is quite close to the big grocery store, tram stop, bike rental and to the city center as well, so it was easy for us to reach any place without any problems.
Sincerely recommend and would like to stay there again.
Thank you, Dorine!
Our stay in Dorine's Appartment was wonderfull ! The appartment is quite close from the city center as expected : 15min by foot ! You have a very nice view of the Artis Zoo from the living room (it's very nice to wake up and see camels!). Also Dorine is a very nice host and her mother too :) Last point :there's plenty of space in this very nice and old appartment, a very good thing for a group of 5-6!!

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.
