Interaction with Guests
Our aim is to give you a perfect home away from home.
We are of course primarily your hosts, but as we are your neighbors as well we are open for the things one does with neighbors
Our neighborhood has an authentic Amsterdam signature. 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 great terraces. Combined with the closeness of the Vondelpark we consider our neighborhood very agreeable
Public transportation is around the corner (tram No 1) and brings you in the city center in 5 minutes. Alternative is to start with a stroll through the park and reach city center or museum area within 20 minutes walking
Other Things to Note
As registered B&B we decided to include Tourist taxes in our pricing.
We expect guests to treat our house and our neighbors ( and we are one of your neighbors) as if they were theirs. As our airbnb is located in a local street we expect our guests to respect the lives and rhythm of our neighbors
1) No parties in my apartment please (Amsterdam has a lot more to offer than the apartment),
2) No smoking in the house.
3) No pets,.. sorry,
4) No unexpected guests without prior notice.
5) Checkin and Checkout time are flexible
6) No music after 23:00,
7) Please be especially quiet in summer time when you have the french balcony doors opened after 23:00, since my neighbors bedroom is right next to the balcony.
8) It would be great if you could please leave the apartment as clean as you found it.
9) Avoid loud conversations in our street
Piet was a great host. Apartment was great, in a very nice neighborhood. Easy walk to the museums and not too much farther into the center of town. Would definitely recommend.
Piet is the perfect host for an Amsterdam visit. The apartment is massive, spotless and really comfortable and is in a lovely location right on the edge of the beautiful Vondelpark. As a host, Piet had thought of pretty much everything a visitor might need and had put it all at hand. I'd happily stay here anytime I was in Amsterdam.
From the very beginning of our process of finding the apartment on AirBnB to departure things went so smoothly. The apartment itself is wonderfully appointed and conveniently located, perfect for two couples vacationing in Amsterdam. We very much appreciated that he provided food basics (& beer!) for us on arrival. What a nice welcome!
We had a great time in Piet's apartment. Great welcoming and nice location. We'll come back !
Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Piet. Les explications détaillées
pour trouver l'appartement étaient parfaites. L'appartement correspond exactement à la description. Tout est très propre et très bien décoré. On se sent comme chez soi. Un accueil vraiment soigné avec en plus des fruits, du vin...et un petit guide de bonnes adresse. Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.
Piete was great! Made us feel really welcome and pointed out a few local attractions like the park and food places, Piete even left us some bread and fruits. The space was better than we imagined, in all we couldn't have asked for more.
