Looking forward to welcome you in our country house.
I stayed in Amsterdam with my husband and my son for 3 days. Unfortunately we didn't meet Carla. But her son met us and told everything that we needed. We liked the apartment very much. It was clean and very comfortable. If you decide to stay in Amsterdam, I very recommend you this apartment. )
Is a nice place, we have ended up staying for a while as we sort out own apartment, and it all works pretty well, is in a nice area, and is nicely done out...main bedroom is super small with double bed taking up almost all of the floor space, but small living room has pull out couch which we are using alot
We had a very good experience. The house was very clean and nice when mi arrive.
We had a gread comunication with her during the stay and, if any problem, she was very accesible.
The house was beautiful.
Excellent in every respect.
The apartment is lovely and very pleasent to be in. Carla lives in Pas de Calais, her son Buf lives in Amsterdam and handles keys and any problems and so forth; they were both thoughtful, timely, diligent and effective. There was for example a minor problem with flushing the toilet (the flush wouldn't stop), Buf had a plumber round in a day.
The rent is very well priced. I lived in Amsterdam once for three years; normally you'd pay 1500 euro/month for such an apartment, except you'd also pay the same again outright to the property agent, and two months deposit and then the first month of rent - and be committed for a year. Airbnb makes the local rental market look crazy (although to be fair it is the way it is due to regulation, which has made finding rental property in Amsterdam a Herculian task).
There is a reasonably sized Albert Hein at the end of the street, the number 2 tram stops there also (Amstelveenstraat), which takes you directly into town.
The only shortcoming I can mention is that the shower is small. I shower every morning and it's important to me, so I care more about this perhaps than most. The water flow is excellent, the heat is excellent, but the cubicle is small. It's absolutely *okay*, you won't have a problem, but if you like showers and shower as I do, you'll notice.
Note however this would in no way stop me from letting this apartment agian.
What a great place this is well worth a visit very classy furnishings a massive garden to play in and my favourite part was there was a record player in there which I used everyday and I even did paintings of some of the record covers. The only down side for me was the steep stairs but that's not too bad really because there is a bedroom downstairs...but yeah we shall definitely try and go back there. The local area is very quiet but there are beaches not far away and we found a couple of local brocantes to spend our euros at. The nearest Carrefour is in hucquliers where we spent more of our euros. All in all a very relaxing way to spend a week in France
Great apartment made for a great stay in Amsterdam. Many thanks
Maurits' apartment is such a peaceful and beautiful place, where you can really relax and feel at home. I didn't meet Maurits, but the communication was very easy and smooth, and his friend Carsten was very helpful and accomodating when I arrived. The area is also really nice with some good restaurants nearby, and it's a nice walk to Vondelpark to get to the centre of town. Overall a great experience that I would highly recommend!
A great apartment outside the tourist madness but a quick tran ride on the 2 to get to all the museums. Fantastic kitchen. It was just what my wife and I needed!
Staying in this beautiful apartment was like living as a local and so we felt immediately at home. It is in a lovely quiet neighbourhood only a 15 minute tram ride from Amsterdam centre, that offers all amenities and more. Close to the Vondelpark to stroll and relax. Maurits was most helpful on arrival and the place was spotless. I would never stay in a hotel again, this was my first experience with airbnb accommodation and has proven to be sooo much better and enjoyable! So thank you very much Maurits and Carla, I would definitely come back!
We loved Amsterdam and was so happy to have stayed in this beautiful apartment. Rent a bike its a must! Theres a grocery store and beautiful cafes around. The park is really close from the house and its perfect to sit down and relax. The apartment was clean we used the bed and the sofa bed to have more space. We would have stayed longer here if we could. If you are looking for a local relaxed experience i would totally recommend this.
