We spent 3 days in Amsterdam, the city is magic!
The apartment of Sabine and his husband is very close to the center, very confortable and clean.
You can see a beautifull view from the top (as you see in the photos, what you see is exactly what you'll find) and everything is good, even if you came back late in the night. Sabine is very kind, every morning you'll recieve a breakfast in to the fridge. No negative things, super!
Sabine is a woooonderful host and has a truly beautiful home. She is warm and welcoming and extremely helpful. Well organised, she even provided maps and brochures for us and helped us plan our entire stay, suggesting interesting places to see and drawing out our route! The house is centrally located and it was so easy to just step out and be right in the museum area! I could not have been happier and more comfortable. Additionally, the room was gorgeous, the view delightful, and the little terrace was the cherry on the cake! A wonderful experience I would strongly reccommend. Such a nice person and such a nice place to stay!
Sabine and Neil a fabulous hosts; knowledgeable of Amsterdam and beyond, great hosts who are happy to help yet respect their guests' privacy. Sabine's guest room exceeded our expectations; it is perfectly clean, spacious, very cosy and enjoys wonderful views. The flat's is perfectly located with the bus stop connecting to the airport literally on the doorstep and all major sights in walking distance. Highly recommended.
Thank you Sabine -we had a wonderful time in Amsterdam.
I and my two friends from France and Germany wanted to get together in Amsterdam to spend a relaxing weekend and visit the city's main museums. Sabine's flat came up on the first page when I did a search on Airbnb, its description and reviews sounded like it was exactly what we were looking for, so I just booked it. We were not disappointed for a second.
The location was perfect for our purposes -- the museums are really next door and the canals are in walking distance. The "Airbnb area" of the hosts' big apartment is bright, cozy and impeccably clean, with large windows and a nice view. It is on the top floor with its own amenities, so you have your privacy and although the building is located on a lively street with a tram line, it is very calm.
Sabine was a very welcoming and caring host, always ready to help or share an anecdote but not intrusive at the same time. She gave us very good recommendations for restaurants etc. Her instructions for reaching the apartment were also very clear, and she always answered my emails impressively quickly.
So, I can only agree with the other reviews saying that this is a real find. Many thanks again, Sabine!
Sabine's room under the roof of a typical tall Amsterdam house is perfect. Comfortable big room with a private bathroom and little kitchen. Location couldn't be better, right beside the Van Goth and Rijk museum and with lots of tramways passing nearby though we did most of our visiting by foot. Also direct bus to the airport 2 mn away. Sabine and Neil were great hosts and their daughter good company for my daughter the same age. Sabine was kind enough to book us a restaurant for the night of our arrival. We would come back any time.
a very nice stay in a fantastic city by a very friendly hostess:)
Staying at Sabine's was my first experience with Airbnb and set the bar really high; I loved her place!
When I arrived, Sabine had the apartment clean and well appointed. She had many maps and books about the area and quickly set about showing me how the town was laid out. I really appreciated that because it helped better orient me right away. She had breakfast food set out in thw kitchen and gave me great food rec's for the area.
The second day I was there I got sick and Sabine made sure to get me to an Apothecary so I could get medicine right away.
She and her family were very warm and inviting and between that, the location and the way the aprtment was set up, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with her and would highly reccomend it to anyone.Thanks Sabine!
My stay at Sabine Bouchara-Ferguson' flat exceeded my best expectations in many ways. Sabina, herself, was delightful - amazingly available to help in any way, but not encroaching at all, she is cheerful, helpful, kowledgable and interesting. The flat itself and Sabina's home are tasteful and thoughtful, with everything available to make guests comfortable. The neighborhood is very safe and walkable, mostly residential with public transportation frequent and easy. It is a minute or two walk to the Rijksmuseum and others, and near many restaurants, food stores and interesting shops. Sabina and her husband, upon discovering that my husband is fond of wearing lungees, presented us with one of their own. A lovely gift.
This was a real find. We stayed few minutes walk from all the museums, canal hop on /off cruise and bus directly to the airport!!! We could walk everywhere. The apartment was really nice and we had our own space. Sabine was a superb host , really friendly and helpful . We would definitely stay here again and we recommend it to anybody wanting to come to Amsterdam! Thank you Sabine!
Our stay at Sabine's house was perfect. She is very welcoming and gave us all the details we needed to discover the city. The room is just like the description and pictures on the announce, warm and cosy with an amazing view on the city roofs. Close to everything, museums around the corner and it only takes a 15-minute-walk to get to the city center. Privacy guaranteed as you have your own floor at the top of the house. Very quiet too. Only the cat may very discreetly come up to see you in the morning for breakfast ;-) I highly recommend this place!
It was a real pleasure to host Sabine. She took good care of the apartment and left everything in perfect order. There were no problems whatsoever. I would be happy to host her again anytime, and I can recommend her as a guest to everyone.
Sabine, Neill e Tara have been very special guests in our house. Kind, tidy and so excited for everything they've seen in Umbria for the first time. Me and Anna were delighted by their company and would love to be their guests in their house in Amsterdam. Once again the "Airbnb family" reveals itself as exceptional!
Lovely family. They took care of our property very well. Neill even managed to replace the cooking gas tank which happened to get emptied during their stay. Sabine planned the trips well and let me know ahead of time if there is any special request.
SAbine and family have been wonderful guests. they have helped keep my place in great condition. Very nice and easy-going family, highly recommended guest indeed.
Sabine is a really charming person.
Polite, smiling and well-kept, it was a real pleasure to have her as guest in the Sleeping Lion. It is without any hesitation that we'll welcome her again and if she is the same host in Amsterdam, it is with an immense pleasure that we think to visit her during a next visit in the Netherlands. You understood it, whether it is as invited or as host, we can only recommend you warmly Sabine.
great people. everything very clean. always again
