Hi i'm Maria (aka Lara), i live in Amsterdam (The Netherlands). I'm a freelance interior/fashion stylist and singer/songwriter.
I live in Amsterdam for 5years now.
My life motto is: See what you can be, be who you want to be.
Had a lovely weekend & really enjoyed seeing this part of Amsterdam. The other reviews were helpful...
Fantastic apartment with everything you need for a long weekend. The location is great and there is plenty to do on the doorstep. The center is also walking distance or the trams very frequent and really convenient. We had a brilliant weekend. Thanks!
This is a great apartment in a superb district of Amsterdam. You have everything virtually right on your doorstep and amongst a very friendly and helpful neighbourhood.
Lara was very polite, helpful and took the time to answer any questions I had for her during my stay. I would definitely stay here again.
Well located, just (email hidden)ly daily market and close to a tram station, the apartment is clean (we enjoyed the sweet smell of the laundry !) and comfortable, although it would maybe deserve a better isolation. Several popular bars just down the street. Lara is very friendly and always replied to our many questions. We spent a very nice stay in Amsterdam and we would definitely recommend Lara's house.
P.S. : at the market, for your breakfast, try the fresh orange juice and the delicious poffertjes, these little pancakes full of butter and sugar... Mmmm !
Everything we needed for our stay in Amsterdam! Loved the location, can be a bit noisy as it is right above the market (we knew this beforehand and it was just fine). Very clean, wonderful layout and nicely decorated. Lara was very quick to respond to any questions we had during our stay.
Fantastic apartment in a great area. The area is very lively and stats open late. Felt very safe. There is a great market right outside the apartment. Close to trams that will take you to other parts of the city. Would definitely recommend.
This was our first airbnb-experience and it was definitely a great one. The apartment is as tastefully furnished as described and could be seen on the pics. Lara is a very nice host and had plenty of tips for the really cool area around.
After all I would definitely try to rent the same place for our next trip to Amsterdam. Thanx
Our stay was lovely! De Pijp is THE coolest area to stay in and we loved having the incredible Albert Cuypmarkt right outside the door. The bed was amazingly cosy, and the place was clean and welcoming. Maria was equally friendly and welcoming though we saw her only briefly, due to a delay on our end, she still took the time to make sure we got settled in ok.
One thing I would mention is to be prepared for noise, not from the cafe downstairs, but rather the market vendors setting up in the morning. A good pair of earplugs should do the trick, though! We also had a little trouble with the showerhead but Maria was clear on that from the start, and made a note that it is in the process of being mended so I have no doubt the bathroom will be top notch for the next guest!
All in all, a wonderful stay and I would definitely love to stay again!
Cute little apartment in a vibrant area. The place was tidy and Maria was very helpful and friendly. Thanks for the hospitality!
Everything was perfect - apart from the noise of the street and of the house. The flat is very well decorated and everything has been made so that you feel comfortable. Maria Christina is a very nice person and it was a pleasure to meet her!
Lara is a great host and the apartment is nice and clean. It is situated in the most trendy area of Amsterdam 'De Pijp' with many nice bars, restaurants and the world famous daily market 'De Albert Cuyp'. A great place to discover the real Amsterdam!
