About this listing

Light & bright modern home with roof terrace in upcoming Amsterdam West to rent. ideal for travellers who want to come home to a quiet oasis after long days in the city. Longterm guests 1 - 6mm prefered.

The space

The apartment is a very bright and quiet oasis in a house from the 1930’s, fully renovated in 2011. It’s on the top floor of a 4-story residential building. The staircases are suprisingly wide for Amsterdam conditions (no lift). The highlight is certainly the spacious roof terrace of 40sqm with sun all day long - if it's shining - with a lot of privacy. Simply ‘Malve’s Himmelreich’.

The appartment is decorated with light, natural colours and a charming mix of antiques and modern design, giving it a serene and cozy atmosphere.

There is a lovely bedroom of 18sqm, accomodating 1 to 2 people. On a sunny day you wake up with the morning sun which guarantees a smile on your face. The room is very bright and newly decorated with light colours. The room is furnished with a double bed and a clothes rack.

There is also a 2nd, smaller bedroom, facing the quiet backyard.

If you need any suggestions on what to do, I am more than happy to give you recommendations for shopping streets, restaurants, flea markets, 2nd hand shops, latest exhibitions etc. so you can have a memorable stay in beautiful Amsterdam.

I settled in Amsterdam 10 years ago, having German roots. Still enjoying exploring the world though and loving to stay at bed & breakfasts myself while traveling.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Looking forward to hosting you!

Upon our arrival we were promptly meet by our host and welcomed into this lovely space. It is a little gem with everything that we needed on our journey through Europe. It is a one minute walk to the tram that in turn takes about 15 minutes to arrive at Central Amsterdam. We found it so nice to experience the riches of the city while venturing home in the evening to our quiet neighborhood. Thanks a bunch

The listing is true to reality, very well described on the website. The host was very welcoming, and even helped with carrying the suitcases upstairs. It was easy to feel comfortable in the house, and we certainly would stay in the flat again!

Thanks to Malve for warm welcome! Very light and spacious apartment with all necessary things for living. It has great location (not far from the Centre) and nice terrace. I highly recommend Malve's apartment!

Sleek and spacious apartment in the heart of the Baarsjes, a really great neighborhood of Amsterdam. Malve is a wonderful host - thank you for accommodating us and for the lovely treats you left for us upon arrival!

Malve is a great host! She met me when I arrived and kindly gave me some fruit and tea; we talked and she was very helpful with lots of good suggestions. The wifi worked very well, which is important as an international traveler. She also has a great document with information about neighborhood and the house that I referred to a few times. The key pickup and drop-off was very easy and the neighborhood felt extremely safe. I did stay in a smaller room of Malve's, but it proved to be just as lovely as the one pictured. Everything I needed for a 5 day stay!

We had an excellent experience staying at Malve's room. Our plane arrived early in the morning and she was able to meet up with us so that we could store our luggage with her. Additionally, Malve brought us flowers and some local treats. Malve also was able to print out our train tickets that needed to be on A4 paper (not available in the US). I can't recommend Malve's room enough. The accommodations were immaculately clean and more than enough room for the two of us. You also have access to the private rooftop terrace. We didn't spend time up there because it was cold, but it would be a great spot to spend time in the warmer months. The room is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood, and is steps away from the tram line. We were able to take the tram to the Centraal Station and many of the famous sights and arrive within 10-15 minutes. Trams run very frequently from here! I would recommend this room to anyone!
