Looking for a great place to relax in busy Amsterdam?
Especially if you're looking for snuggling on a super big sofa, relax in a hammock or take a walk in the park; this is the place to be :)
My apartment is ideal: situated in a beautiful, calm area in the fancy south part of Amsterdam, it's a true oasis surrounded by trees.
Amsterdam is a lovely city but the centre can be too crowded and packed with tourists... If you want to be close to that but not in the middle of it, you'll find it here.
Situated only 2 blocks from Amsterdam's best and most central park; Vondelpark. I've got quite some picnic equipment which you can use for a nice picnic at the park.
If you walk through the park, you'll end up at Leidsplein, the main square (close to where the museums are) and walking distance to Art Zuid.
There's lots of public transport day and night (direct bus to the airport every 15 mins, takes you 20 mins and to the city center by tram or bus, 5 mins).
My street is calm but supermarkts, bars, shops and restaurants are all right around the corner.
I provide a book about Amsterdam with guides and flyers about where to go and there are games and cards you can use.
If you are already planning your next trip, I've got a lot of travel books you can have a look at.
Coffee and tea are free to take and you can use my kitchen utensils as well as spices, herbs etc. Also I provide soap and shampoo.
My place is ideal for couples who want to stay in a safe, clean, spacious and light apartment in a quiet neighborhood but still want to be close to the center.
Check in and out times are open for discussion.
My apartment is on the 3rd floor (no elevator, 2 stairs)
Smoking is only allowed on the balcony. No drugs.
I rent out my apartment when I'm abroad for work, which is quite often BUT I only get my schedule 5 weeks ahead so I can't accept rentals further away then that date but you can mail me and I let you know as soon as I have my schedule..
All prices include use of: clean linen, towels, washingpowder, toilet paper, wifi internet, dvd player, dishwasher, oven, microwave, toaster, blender, nespresso coffeemaker, oven, watercooker, washing machine and dryer.
I love hosting people and give information if needed and I'm sure you will feel at home and find everything you need, and if not, just let me know.
A very helpful website is I (website hidden) also for parking possibilities..
Interaction with Guests
My street is one where a lot of families live and there are a lot of shops and restaurants nearby. I live very close to Vondelpark, cities most famous park.
There are buses and trams to the airport and all around the city nearby
Other Things to Note
There is WIFI but unfortunately the connection is not always superfast, also the tv can be disrupted. Working on a better provider...
I am tidy and clean so I hope so are you. My apartment is non smoking but there is a small balcony where you are free to smoke :) Please be aware that the Amsterdam houses can be quite noisy so respect my neighbors.
Rachel's apartment was wonderful, and we really enjoyed our stay. It was just as described. It was clean, spacious, comfortable, well equipped in a very convenient part of the city. The bed was great, and we were able to walk easily to the Museums we visited. Rachel put together a very helpful booklet with tourist information, maps and her favorites. The shuttle bus to Schipohl airport was nearby and inexpensive.
We loved staying at Rachel's. Her flat is gorgeous - spacious, light and extremely comfortable, with a cosy feel. The Kitchen is very well equipped, and although there are many restaurants and cafes very close by, if you want to cook, you have everything you need - lots of utensils, crockery, cutlery and glass ware. The flat is also very quiet. We hardly ever heard the neighbours and noise from the street is minimal. The immediate neighbourhood is great and every convenience is very close at hand - a supermarket is just a one-minute walk away, there are lots of cafes, bars and restaurants, good tram links to the centre and tourist hotspots - three of the major museums are within fifteen minutes walking distance of the flat, and the lovely Vondelpark is practically on the doorstep. We met Rachel before she left, and she was accommodating and friendly, also very speedy with e-mail communication. We couldn't have had a better place to stay during our four months in Amsterdam, it truly felt like home and we'd stay again like a shot - in fact we've already asked!
Airy and light-filled apartment in a residential area. Close to two tram lines that go to the Central Station and tourist attractions along the way.
We loved to stay at Rachel's apartment. She was absent when we've arrived but her brother's girlfriend met us and show the apartment. Thanks Rachel for the information how to get to the house, its 25mins by bus from Schiphol airport and 5mins walk from bus station. We would like to stay one more time here.
Rachel's apartement was very clean, comfortable and it is located in one of the best area in Amsterdam. It was perfect for our visit. Rachel was very helpful and responsive. Highly recommend!
My girlfriend and I stayed at Rachel's apartment for 2 months and absolutely loved everything about it.
The apartment itself felt much bigger than it actually is because of the high ceilings and large windows that let in a lot of natural light.
The apartment had a well stocked kitchen which allowed us to cook from home a lot. There are two grocery stores within a quick walk and many great restaurants in the area. My girlfriend also became quite the espresso drinker as we both loved the Nespresso machine in the kitchen!
Oh and the couch in the living room..wow
It is not located directly in the 9 streets area but there are two trams and numerous busses that can get you to the heart of Amsterdam in 5-10 minutes. We also purchased a bike during our stay and biking through the city is the way to go.
It is a quick walk to the Museumplein which a great benefit for those looking to see the Van Hogh and Rjiks museum.
You are very close to Vondelpark which is great for a run, bike, or just relaxing in.
Even though it is outside of the 9 streets it was perfect for us. We actually enjoyed being in a more residential neighborhood as it felt more like a home.
Our 2 months in Amsterdam would not have been as great if it wasn't for Rachel's apartment. We both said how easy the transition was from our lives in LA to Amsterdam and we can truly say it was because Rachel's apartment felt like home the minute we arrived.
We had a wonderful holiday in Amsterdam and loved staying in this apartment. The location was great, nice and quiet, yet with lovely cafes and restaurants nearby. It is situated a casual stroll away from the musuem district and a short tram ride to the busy tourist regions. The apartment itself has loads of character with all of the modern conveniences. Would happily stay at his apartment again. Highly recommended!
About the Host, Rachel
I'm a flight attendant and I rent out my apartment when I'm away for work or just when I travel for fun. I've studied hotel management and I love traveling so I know how important it is to stay in a place with a good vibe. With my brother as a neighbor, assistance is always around. Feel free to check out availability, also last minute.
