I am a Dutch filmmaker. I am married and I have two children.
We've got our own production company and are specialized in documentaries and artfilms
In my free time I love horseback riding.
Other guests I think have also said it, but this flat really is even more beautiful than it looks in the photos! It's amazingly light and airy, nicely renovated, and has a lovely terrace looking out over gardens and trees. It was wonderful to wake to the sound of birdsong, and to see trees and blue skies, despite being in the centre of the city.
The location is ideal. Right next to the little nine streets and Jordaan, where we spent a happy afternoon browsing lovely little boutiques and vintage shops, and sipping on delicious coffees and smoothies! We actually walked everywhere we wanted to go from here. There are also a couple of bike hire places on the street, if you wanted to rent bikes.
Manon was very helpful, taking time to show us around, and giving recommendations for example of somewhere to go for lunch when we arrived.
We really couldnt recommend this place more. We had a fantastic stay in Amsterdam, largely thanks to the location and the quality of the accommodation!
The apartment was perfect. It is the most central location you can be. Everything is close, everything is open.
Manon is the perfect hostess, she was waiting for us with open arms, with a smile and explained to us all.
What you see in pictures is what you get. Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, shower fun, stunning terrace. In short perfect!
Great apartment. Friendly + helpful host. Highly recommended.
This is a truly beautiful apartment, with great style, a very spacious living room and lots of light from the huge bay windows. The view from front is onto a thoroughfare street with trams. From the back balcony, you overlook the beautiful back gardens of canal houses. The location is perfect, within steps from the Jordaan, the "Negen Straatjes" and of course Dam square. Manon is a great host, very responsive and extremely nice.
Lovely flat and fantastic location. We absolutely loved staying here and felt right at home (our little dog did too). The communication between ourselves and Manon was excellent and she even has a great little guide book that she's put together for the area.
The Jordaan is our favorite district as it's got everything you need: great cafe's, bakeries, historical homes, markets, great shopping, etc., and it isn't crawling with drunken tourists like some other areas of the city.
The apartment has a huge living room, which is tastefully decorated, a big kitchen with all the amenities you need, tons of cupboard space a great shower and most importantly a very comfortable bed. We especially loved waking up early in the morning and looking right out into the trees of the courtyard from the bed....very relaxing.
We would definitely stay here again and to be honest, we didn't want to leave.
Fantastic location, big and beautiful flat!
Beautiful apartment right smack in amsterdam city. Manon was lovely to deal with and was very accommodating. The apartment was so spacious and clean.The price that i paid was also very resonable for an apartment that size. I would definitely be returning to stay in his apartment again soon. An excellent host.
wonderful apt. absolutely perfect. i can't think of anything that could have made it better. our hosts were charming and very helpful.
Really nice tasteful, bright, airy flat with a beautiful fireplace in a great location.
Manon is really helpful host.
Highly recommend this place.
Manon's apartment was absolutely gorgeous. It was perfectly located and my friend and I walked nearly everywhere in the city we wanted to go from there. Manon took the time to walk us around the apartment and gave us fantastic recommendations for restaurants, shops, and markets. I would stay here again and highly recommend it!
Manon was an excellence guest. She was very friendly, respectful, always responded nice and quick and left the place in a perfect (website hidden) was a pleasure to host her and her family. I would definitively recommend her to anyone on AirBnB.
Manon is a very good friend of mine for many years. We met 10 yrs ago when our sons became schoolmates at primary school. I know her as a very caring, reliable and warm person.
I enjoyed lots of inspiring hours with Manon and her husband Bas in their amazing apartment or on their boat crossing the canals of Amsterdam! They are a hospitable, relaxed, funny and all around cool couple! I'm sure they will do all they can to make you feel home.
I've stayed in their apartment several times while they were on holiday, and always felt favoured. Their apartment is one of the best places you could stay. You could spend hours just looking outside, the hugh art nouveau apartment has a superb view over the Jordaan. In the back you can enjoy the silent gardens from their romantic balcony. And everything you wanna go is just a few steps from home.
The atmosphere is warm and the interior design is just cool.
What else can I say: Highly recommended!!
