Interaction with Guests
We only rent out the house when we are on holidays. So we won't be available ourselves, but our caretaker is always eager to answer questions. We enjoy communicating with our guests before their arrival in order to let them take the most out of their stay in Amsterdam. Don't forget to check our Airbnb Guide!
The location of our house is truly unique. We live in a quiet street yet only 100 meter walking distance from both the most famous museums (Van Gogh, Stedelijk and Rijksmuseum) and the best shopping streets (P.C. Hooft and Cornelis Schuyt). The entrance of the Vondelpark is right next door. Through the Vondelpark it is only a 10 minute walk to the Leidseplein and the famous Amsterdam canals. The Concert Gebouw is only 5 minutes away, just like one of the biggest supermarkets in the centre of Amsterdam. You will be spoiled for dinner hot spots in our neighbourhood.
Tram line 2, 3, 5 and 12 stops within a 100 meter walk. Line 2 is the direct connection to Central Station, line 5 to Amsterdam Zuid Station.

We waren met acht vrienden in Amsterdam voor een weekendje en hadden een geweldige tijd. De incheck verliep zonder problemen en was erg flexibel. Het huis zelf was volledig in orde, groot,modern,...
We raden deze plek zeker aan voor toekomstige huurders!!
We had an absolutely brilliant and hassle free visit - thank you Guido and family! the house is simply amazing & it's as good as the photos! The area is great ...it's kind of Kensington meets crouch end, safe place to be, really handy- right by museums & easy to get to centre trams 2/5 are frequent and easy to use - we were on business as a team but Guido ever helpful got everything arrange before hand. Anouk who met us and was available for any problems or queries during the stay. The balmy autumn weekend meant a great wander round the Vondlepark was a huge pleasure - we will be back :-)
What an amazing experience it was to stay at Guido's place in Amsterdam! Guido was a gazillion percent responsive, prompt and thorough in his communications before and during our stay. There were very helpful tips and instructions about both the house and interesting/useful places in the neighborhood.
The house was exactly as described and very, very well kitted out. The location couldn't have been more perfect. I don't think I have enough words to describe what a fantastic experience we had in Amsterdam -- and that was in large part due to Guido's wonderful home. Thanks, Guido!
The apartment was perfect for our long weekend! Brilliant location right next to Vondel park, close to the museums and easy access into the center. The apartment is gorgeous and very spacious - perfect for a group holiday. Guido was an excellent host and responded quickly to any queries leading up to our stay. We were sad not to meet him but his friend Anouk was very helpful when collecting and returning the keys.
Ein tolles und schönes Haus.Wir waren eine Gruppe von fünf Frauen, jede von uns hatte ihr eigenes Zimmer. Das war ein Luxus. Es ist sehr zentral mit vielen Cafes, Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten. Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit in dem Haus. Vielen Dank an Guido und seine Familie.

eine absolute Top-Unterkunft! Bei der Ankunft wurden wir schon fröhlich und freundlich von einer Freundin von Guidos Familie begrüßt - die uns durch das ganze Haus geführt und uns alles gezeigt hat. Die Fotos auf Airbnb versprechen nicht zu viel - die Einrichtung ist top. Wir waren 8 Personen (4 Pärchen) und hatten in Guidos Räumlichkeiten eine angenehme, gemeinschaftliche Atmosphäre - dennoch konnte man sich abends zurückziehen, weil für jedes Pärchen ein eigenes Zimmer bereit stand. Das "house manual" beschreibt alles sehr toll, so dass man sich schnell zurechtfindet. Die Wohnung ist zentral gelegen, so dass man mit der Straßenbahn schnell alles erreichen kann. Nur ein paar Meter neben der Wohnung befindet sich der Vondel-Park - so dass man jederzeit "ins Grüne" kann, joggen, etc. Alles in allem - absoulte tolles Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Schade dass wir Guidos Familie nicht persönlich kennen lernen konnten (sie waren auf einer Reise), denn bereits beim anfänglichen Email-Kontakt wurde immer sehr freundlich, sympathisch und rasch geantwortet. Jederzeit gerne wieder!
an absolute superior location ! On arrival we were already greeted by a cheerful and friendly friend of Guido's family - she led us through the house and showed us everything . The photos on Airbnb dont promise too much - the facility is great. We were 8 people (4 couples) and enjoyed Guido's premises in a pleasant, social atmosphere - but we could also retire at night , because there was a separate room for each couple. The "house manual" describes everything very great, so you can settle in very quickly. The apartment is centrally located, so you can easily reach everything on the tram . Just a few meters away from the apartment there is the Vondel Park - so that you can enjoy the nature when you want, jogging, etc. All in all - value and achievement are top . Too bad that we could not meet Guidos family personally (they were on a trip) , because already in the initial e-mail contact Guido was always very friendly and personally and he answered quickly . At any time gladly again!
This is an incredible home just minutes from the heart of Amsterdam. The house is massive and can easily cater for groups of 7, 8 or even more. The house is kitted out to a high spec and the hosts have ensured that everything of theirs have been packed away to allow room. We made good use of their lovely garden and the long dinner table. Highly recommend!!
