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 we listen carefully to your feedback the following items might be interesting: As we received feedback as well as questions about the availability of a hairdryer we bought one. As we noticed our Spanish guests use to toast their bread, so we bought a toaster.
So we will listen to any reasonable request and even solve it during your stay. So feel free to mention whatever might improve your stay.
Our arrival and departure times are flexible, meaning we are flexible and try to figure out how to facilitate our guests in the most convenient ways. We do however get into situations were leaving and departing guests interest don't (email hidden) that case we clean the house between 11:00 and 13:00 offering departing and arriving guests the opportunity to stall their luggage and pick it up at any convenient time.
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
Great place to stay in Amsterdam. Spacious inside the apartment. Excellent cooking facility's. Good size bedrooms with comfortable bed's. Very easy to catch tram into Centraal Station and canal area's or walk the length of Vondalpark to the canals.
Piet is a nice bloke who is responsive to requests. A really nice touch was the eggs, bread, butter , milk and fruit provided by Piet and Iris.........and the stroopwaffle!
I will point out the lack of a washing machine although when I asked Piet about this he did offer the use of his personal machine and also directions to the local laundromat.
One more small point is the stairs between the two floors may not be suitable for small children.
L'appartement de Piet était tout à fait conforme aux photos. Il est meublé avec goût, propre et nous y avons trouvé tout ce qui nous était nécessaire. Surtout l'accueil est particulièrement agréable : fleurs, vin, fromage et tout ce qui est utile pour le petit déjeuner. Piet répond toujours aux questions et est très sympathique. Le quartier est très agréable : le Vondelpark à quelques mètres et de nombreux commerces, cafés et restaurants. A recommander fortement.
Piet, desde os primeiros contatos foi atencioso, fornecendo todas as informações que solicitamos. O apartamento é perfeito, espaçoso, e muito agradável, exatamente como nas fotos. A localização é muito boa, próximo a área central de Amsterdã e ao lado do belo parque "Vondelpark". Agradecemos a Piet pela gentileza, experiência e oportunidade que nos proporcionou de uma genuina estadia em Amsterdã. Adoramos!
Piet was great at contact/messages and was there to let us in after easy directions to find the apartment. The wine/cheese/eggs/fruit was a super bonus and most welcome! The apartment is just a few steps from Vondel Park & the tram stop. The apartment is in a quiet location but does have a few bars, supermarkets and pizza restaurants nearby. We had a nice time here - thanks very much
Piet est un hôte formidable, qui a su nous accueillir comme des rois. Le pain, les oeufs, le lait, la bière... les biscuits hollandais .. le bouquet de fleurs, tout était là pour nous sentir chez nous.
Piet a été disponible tout au long de notre séjour (5 jours) en répondant à nos questions.
La maison est conforme aux photos et description. Spacieuse, moderne et décorée avec bon goût. Maison à étage avec bel escalier, et 2 vraies chambres avec de bons lits.
Maison idéalement placée avec le parc Vodelpark juste à côté et le Tram 1 qui passe au bout de la rue, et va de l'aéroport à la gare centrale en passant par la Place Dam. Que demander de mieux?
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Piet.

Piet was sensational. His apartment was definitely our favourite during our trip. It was the first apartment at the beginning of our trip and our last at the end. Coming back it really did feel like home. The apartment was well laid out with a bedroom down stairs and with another upstairs.
The apartment was next to Vondelpark (great for a walk or ride), and also alongside the tram line taking you into central Amsterdam.
Thanks Piet for all your assistance.
