The Space

I am inviting you to stay in my beautiful apt. The apt has a very cozy living room full of plants (looks bigger in the professional airbnb photos) lots of light, windows facing east and west and an exit to a small terrace located in a real amsterdam neighborhood about 10 minutes walk from the popular Jordaan area and 5 minutes walk to the beautiful (and less touristic) Westerpark, where you can also find cafes, bars, cinema clubs and restaurants.
The view from the living room window is charming and typically dutch, you can see the canal , the bridge, small playground and lots of bikes parking/passing by. The neighborhood is very peaceful and you can find a great cafe just around the corner. You can reach my place within 10 min from central station with bus 21 (3 min walk from the bus stop) and from my place you can take tram 10 which goes directly to Leidseplein , the museums district and De Pijp area are within 10-15 minutes (there are also many connecting trams to Dam square which will take the same time).
You will sleep in a comfortable bed on a high quality mattress and I will provide you with fresh, clean linen and towels. I have full equipped spacious kitchen for cooking, including an oven, fridge a water-cooker and toaster. There is a small bathroom and a separate toilet. There is also a washing machine and 'HighSpeed' Wifi internet access. There is a television screen you can connect your computer (HDMI cable available) to and watch movies with a great sound system (but please not too loud, especially in late hours).
I live in a typical narrow Dutch house on the second floor with no elevator. I have a friendly cat who loves company but doesn't need much.
I live nearby the best night shop in amsterdam offering variety of excellent wines and unique selection of Belgium beers and French cheese, all for affordable prices. There is also a neighborhood bike shop which rents bikes on daily basis 5 minutes away. I will be happy to provide you more information about according to your interests. Please no smoking in the apt, only out on the terrace, there is a sitting corner there. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and happy during your stay.

  • Dana was a great host, very helpful and kind! The apartment was in a lovely neighborhood just a 20-30 minute walk from the central station, the bus stops right outside of the apartment if you don't feel like walking. Great sunny and spacious apartment, perfect for a couple on vacation!

    Spartacus the cat held his protective paw over us the entire stay, a very pleasant landlord :)

    Would absolutely recommend a stay at Danas apartment!

The appartment is beautiful and quiet with the canal just down the house. And her beautiful cat ! Just perfect. For me the perfect place of Amsterdam ! :)

  • Dana was wonderful to deal with - very warm host - and Spartacus made a great roommate. The apartment was easy to get to with public transit when we arrived with bags, although we chose to walk to and from most days - just 20-25 minutes from the centre and closer to Anne Frank house. A couple of supermarkets and a big night market just down the street, and a very good pizzeria just around the corner - very popular with the locals. Bed was very comfortable.

  • Thanks to Dana and her apartment my husband and I could really experience life in Amsterdam - live in real dutch house, use great public transportation (so simple and comfortable), shop in local grocery shops (plenty to choose from in walking distance).
    The neighborhood is peaceful and beautiful. The apartment is great, comfortable and clean. It's equipped with everything you'll need for your stay. Spartacus is the most friendly and kind cat I know (and I have three at home). It was great to have him around.
    Dana is a great host. Helpful and carrying.
    We couldn't have a better vacation.

  • My stay at Dana's Airbnb was excellent. The apartment is small but very cosy and has all necessary equipment that makes the transition to a new place seamless. I very much enjoyed the company of Spartacus the cat. As I was alone, he certainly added some well earned distraction during the evenings! The apartment can easily accommodate a couple, but it might be a squeeze to have any more people. You will certainly like the proximity to Amsterdam and all the tourist attractions. There are also a number of excellent restaurants nearby as well as corner stores and a lovely view over the water from the lounge room.

  • My 9 years old daughter and I really had a wonderful stay in Amsterdam!! Dana is very available for all kinds of questions and has been a very warmful and smiling host.The apartment is very bright, quiet and peaceful and the situation is really nice, close to a canal and some nice restaurants and shops. It's very easy to reach Centraal Station with the bus (but you can also rent a bike!). The apartment looks exactly like the pictures (how nice to get some rest among plants!) and...Spartacus the cat is also a very nice and funny host! Thank you so much to Dana for contributing to our fantastic visit of Amsterdam. Why highly recommand this (really!) fantastic apartment and hope to come back soon!

  • Dana was very responsive and helpful to any questions we had anytime.

    The flat is very clean and easy to find and in a nice quiet area. It is nice to have a balcon and also a view of the canal. The flat has nice decorations that make you feel relaxed. The bed was comfy which is nice for long travels. The location is really good and easy access to trams and buses. Spartacus....what a sweetie...made a nice addition. Thanks Dana!

  • Dana's apartment is fantastic. You could not ask for a better location. It was away from all of the hustle and bustle, so it was charming and peaceful, yet so easy and close to walk to everything. We walked every where on our stay--red light district, museums, Dam Central, etc. When we first arrived it was easier to take transportation because of our luggage, but Dana was very accommodating and met us to give us the keys, and direct us where to go.

    Oh, and you must love cats because Spartacus is keen on snuggling. :-) I would definitely stay here again on another trip to Amsterdam.

I love living in Amsterdam, amazed by its beauty every day. I love traveling and exploring different cultures. I have a beautiful cat named spartacus. He is friendly and loves attention but does not ask for much, just food and fresh water. I love my apartment, it is quite and full of light and plants, watching the bridge and the canal view from my living room sofa is my favorite thing to do
