The flat was exactly as advertised: clean, comfortable, fresh and spacious! The location was great (Oud-West is a trendy area), with 1 tram taking us straight to city centre from a stop around the corner.
Joost was a wonderful host who accommodated us in every way possible. He gave us plenty of information when we arrived and was helpful throughout the stay. He keeps a very beautiful, well-maintained garden in which it is possible to relax after a long day of walking.
We hope Joost will be on vacation again the next time we visit Amsterdam, as we would definitely stay at his home again!
My friends and I had a great time staying at Joost's place. We haven't met but the organisation was perfect and we found the appartment clean and welcoming. So...nice host, nice place, nice location to visit the city...great week end! thx!
el departamento es comodo, lindo y limpio. el barrio esta cercano al centro, y la zona esta muy bien. eramos cuatro personas, dos dormimos en la cama matrimonial, un adulto comodamente ocupo el sillon del living y el cuarto un colcho en el piso, igualmente como la casa era bastante espaciosa, todo estuvo bien. lo recomendamos.
Everything was super-fine. The Appartement was ideal for us 3 guys with 2 of us sleeping in the living room. There is Computer, Kitchen ... we missed nothing. Tram, Supermarkets and Restaurants nearby. We had a funny meal at an african restaurant "klein Africa".
Organiziation an communication with Joost was super easy!!
Joost's apartment was perfect for me and my 3 friends. It had everything we needed and was in a cool area, also walking distance from the center. Communication with Joost before and during our stay was great as well.
Great place to stay in Amsterdam! Very clean and quiet with a nice back yard to hang out.
If you don't feel like staying right in the center of town then this is perfect, the neighborhood has a lot of nice cafes and restaurants and Vondelpark is right around the corner. Highly recommended.
Have stayed at many apartments through airbnb but this was one of the nicest... The place was exactly as it is in the pictures and the host was very prompt in his replies besides being very helpful. When we checked in (which was a bit early according to normal standards) we met Joost's brother who had come in to clean up the house for us. He was as helpful as his brother and our overall experience was just superb there. A kitchen well stocked, comfortable rooms with enough pillows, sheets, etc... what more could we ask for? Will definitely stay there again if the chance arises.
Our stay at the apartment was a delight! It is very near the tram stop, which has 2 tram lines that can take us to Central Station or to Leidseplein.
The unit is very spacious for the 2 of us. The huge windows in the living room and kitchen made the apartment bright and airy. We ended up sleeping in the living room everyday. The garden is lovely.
Supermarket (Albert Heijn), HEMA, convenience shops, cafes and restaurants were all within easy walking distance.
Joost met us at the tram stop and took us to the unit. He was very helpful and allowed us to check in early as we arrived at 8.30 am.
The satellite channels and flat screen tv was great. Wifi and huge screen pc was fantastic. We would definitely stay here again when we come back to amsterdam.
Communication with Joost prior to our stay was great and easy. It was easy to find the apartment as Joost gave us good instructions. The apartment was clean and really comfy. The part we liked the best was that in the neighborhood you can find really good ethnic restaurants. The apartment is very well connected by tram to all the attractions, but it is also easily reachable by foot. WiFi and small garden in the flat are big plus! We really enjoyed our time there and would highly recommend it to anyone
Wonderful apartment. My sister and I were traveling on a budget, and Joost's place made a great home base for our trip. The apartment is super spacious and comfortable, and has a great little back yard. Our train was delayed getting in and Joost was very understanding and patient with the situation. The apartment was very clean. It was a short walk to the tram, but we actually ended up walking everywhere we wanted to go. Everything was about a 20-30 minute walk. Grocery stores, restaurants, and cafes near by. Would definitely stay again.
