Both are situated on the ground floor. Bed linen and towels are provided. The beautiful fully equipped kitchen on the first floor has a microwave, oven, fridge (and freezer) and all utensils needed.

Our house is situated between the Vondelpark and the Overtoom, entrance of the Vondelpark is a 50 meters walk. Our location combines the peace and quiet of a lustrous park and the liveliness of the city. In only 15 minutes walking (through the park) you will be at the Concertgebouw, Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk museum, Leidsplein, P.C. Hooftstraat. Trams and buses are around the corner and we have many small and cozy restaurants in the neighbourhood. Public transportation is around the corner.
The sea is nearby, Zandvoort is easily reached by train (20 min), Bloemendaal is only 30 minutes by car. Not only the beaches are great but also the surrounding area with the sanddunes are great for walking- or cycling tours. (Bicycles can easily be rented.) South of Zandvoort there are the Amsterdamse Waterleidingduinen, a beautiful nature reserve. And 3 kilometers further north, IJmuiden is a favourite spot for kite-surfers.
This was our first time visiting Amsterdam and was also our first experience using Airbnb. Piet's wonderful apartment and amazing hospitality made our visit all the more worth while.
Upon our arrival Piet was on hand with a warm welcome and tour of the apartment, which also included eggs, bread, nibbles and a bottle of wine. A very thoughtful touch!
The description of the apartment is completely accurate, lovely and clean, furnished beautifully with all requirements (towels/cooking utensils etc) included.
The apartment is ideally located, only a short stroll into the center of Amsterdam and a stones throw from the beautiful Vondelpark.
I cannot recommend this apartment enough, Piets hospitality was exceptional, helping organize a taxi to the airport upon our departure and also going out of his way to assist us with other queries. We cannot thank him enough for making our long weekend so memorable. We were very close to booking a hotel before deciding to book Piets apartment and I am relieved that we did! It certainly sets the bar high for all future Airbnb bookings.
Great apartment, in a excellent location opposite the park and with good local shops, bars and restaurants
This was a fantastic place to stay. Great location, extremely comfortable - practical - everything easy to find. Extremely clean and warm. lots of hot water and refreshing shower.
Comfortable beds and fresh white linen - who could ask for more. Piet was such a conscientious and thoughtful host. We arrived late with no time to find somewhere to eat - but Piet had anticipated this and left nibbles, and the essentials for us - eggs, cheese, bread fruit and milk and a bottle of wine too. Thañk you for this thoughtfulness and kindness too. It was a first time in Holland for my husband and daughter and his thoughtfulness set the tone for our most excellent and successful visit. The house was home from home - and after a heft exhausting day taking in the culture it was perfect to come home to a kitchen and a large number of great films to choose from to watch and my daughter was in heaven with the wii.
Good selection of books and and a piano to play meant we could really truly relax. What more could one want.
Piet you have pitched it just right. Also your book of recommendations meant that you directed us to places that were local and not overrun with tourists. We experienced Dutch hospitality and friendliness and of course impeccable spoken English too.
Finally locations brilliant - can walk everywhere, locals stores for groceries and a wonderful park to chill out in and get a feel for family Amsterdam.
Can't recommend this great flat more highly - not least that the atmosphere is warm and welcoming which reflects the family that owns it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam - made memorable by the kind and generous hospitality of Piet.
For us his flat was 'home from home'. Clean and and welcoming. There was everything we could need. We arrived to a kind and genuine welcome by Piet and were directed to cheese, butter, bread and eggs and a bottle of wine - which following a late arrival to his home meant we could make supper and enjoy a very relaxed evening infront of a film. An extensive library of DVDs to choose from and our daughter loved the wii, a real treat. Comfortable beds and clean bed linen - lots of space to hang clothes. We all slept so well. Location of flat great for us - enjoyed walking in to city through park and local store made it easy to cook from home. A booklet of Piet's recommendations meant we were directed to some great local restaurants and hang outs, we really did get a real feel for local Amsterdam - and this couldn't have been made possible if we stayed in a hotel. There were books to read and piano music to play, Piet helped us find a particular shop and accommodated our luggage for a late flight home so we didn't have to lug it round Amsterdam all day.
Piet's apartment was perfect for our stay! It was an ideal location, in a lovely neighbourhood and only a short walk to the city centre. The apartment was equipment with everything that we needed, plenty of towels, blankets, etc as well as bread, milk, eggs, tea, coffee, cereal, nuts, biscuits and wine! We had a very comfortable stay and I would highly recommend it for anyone, couples, friends or a family.
We had a wonderful stay in this apartment - a perfect size for four people, great location right beside the Vondelpark, extremely helpful host and a lovely surprise of bread, cheese, wine etc left for us on arrival which really was unexpected and touching. Very comfortable apartment, beds great, shower great, will definitely stay again! Highly recommend, thank you again for a great stay!
Couldn't be happier. The welcome was warm, the appartment just as nice as in the photos and the little details like the fresh milk and cheese in the fridge made it a perfect stay.
We received a very warm welcome, the apartment was as beautiful as on the pictures, clean and close to the centre. I would definitely recommend it!
I stayed at Piet's place for a couple of days while in Amsterdam. The apartment is perfectly located on the number 1 tram route. It's within easy access to all of Amsterdam's main sights yet, the neighborhood is quiet with lots of nice restaurants, small shops and a great park. Piet was also so kind to leave some grocery items, so we could make breakfast before heading out to explore.
The apartment itself is clean, spacious and quiet. I had no trouble getting in touch with Piet and we had a seamless arrival and departure. I would highly recommend this apartment and look forward to staying there again when I visit Amsterdam.
Apartment is realy comfortable, beautiful decorate, there are a lot of interesting book, big kitchen and has everything you could need. Piet is very friendly and kind, bought for us food for first time. Perfect location, near Vondelpark, 15 minutes walk to the Van Gog museum and Rijksmuseum . Piet, Thank you for everything! especially for taxi
