We are Wouter and Marijntje, and we just had a little baby girl named Josephine. We also have a very cute, fluffy Australian terrier named Ozzy.
We absolutely love love our house, and we really think you will too.
You are always welcome!
We had the most amazing time and our accommodations couldn't have been better. Five of us stayed at Marijntje beautiful three story, three bedroom home in Amsterdam.
The location was perfect for us. We would get breakfast and coffee right next store in the mornings and could easily run to the grocery store to pick up drinks and food which was located on the same block. The most amount of time it would take us to walk to any sights was about 25minutes but walking was part of the experience of enjoying Amsterdam so we didn't mind at all.
We loved the back patio and the cozy couch to relax at the end of the day. We also used the beautiful kitchen to make a family size dinner and at a the huge dining room table.
Marijntje was so helpful and very communicative in making sure everything was set up for our stay as well as her wonderful friend Stacey who greeted us on our arrival and helped us make arrangements for a taxi pick up when going home.
I would definitely recommend staying here when visiting Amsterdam. It was perfect for me and my group of friends but would also be perfect for a family to stay, too.
Lovely house in a terrific location. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Amsterdam
Amazing huge house in a great location! Our stay in Marijntje house was perfect. The house is nice and clean and has all appliances we needed. The location is great. Just a few steps from the tram station, and you can go walking to most atractions in Amsterdam. Marijntje was so helpfull and receptive. I highly recommend this place to stay, and i would stay there again if i have the chance.
This was a great home to stay in. The pictures looked great and the place was even nicer than the pictures. There were three of us staying so we each had our own bedroom. Marijntje met us upon arrival and showed us the place and gave us tips on the surrounding area. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was huge! Very quiet place and great location. We would highly recommend it and will stay there again if the opportunity arises. You can't go wrong on this house.
We enjoyed our stay at this fantastic house conveniently located in the center of Amsterdam at walking distance from many sights. We particularly appreciated having a grocery store as well as a coffee shop right next door. In addition, there are some really pretty views of the "skinny bridge" at just a few blocks from the house.
The house suited our family (two adults and two small children) quite well. All rooms in the house, including the bathroom and three bedrooms are very large. There is also a garden in the back. All in all, this is a very large house, certainly for Amsterdam standards (as acknowledged by some of our Dutch friends who stopped by).
One tip. it is not cheap, but you can consider calling the water taxi to pick you up just outside the house. They can drop you off pretty much anywhere in Amsterdam. Much better than a regular taxi.
I stayed at Marijntje's beautiful house for 4 nights in early September 2012 with 2 friends. We didn't arrive until after midnight and somebody was there to greet us with a lovely welcome and Marijntje organised some wine and cheese for us as we were getting in so late.
Positioned just across from a lovely park and so peaceful and beautifully furnished. I loved waking up in the morning and watching the parents drop their children off to school across the road on their bikes, sometimes with 3 on a bike!
The house is beautifully positioned in a quiet neighbourhood yet has a wonderful cafe next door, supermarket 50mt away and fantastic shopping down Utrechtsestraat just around the corner. We found it an easy walk from the house all over Central Amsterdam. We never caught a tram!
If I ever return to Amsterdam this is where I plan to stay!!
Thank you Marijntje
Marintje has a beautiful house in Amsterdam. It's situated in a great spot, close to everything one would want to see & do in the city. The interior is simple in an elegant way. A small, but practical kitchen, makes it possible to make great meals at home, but there are also fine restaurants just around the corner. The beds are big and comfortable, as is the bathroom.
We stayed in the house for nine nights, and would love to go back!
Very spacious and luxurious house - with all the amenities you need to feel right at home. The location is also great, right in between the night life and sights in Amsterdam. Overall, a fantastic place to stay!
Wow... what a great house! Located perfectly for us as we were attending a conference at the RAI - equidistant between the centre and the RAI. Beautiful area with a park opposite and only a minutes walk to the tram stop. Marijntje was really helpful and provided plenty of information before our stay. Would definitely stay there again.
This is a great apartment in a great location! We spent one week with a family of 6 (grandparents' parents and a 7 and 10 year old). The unit was clean. very functional and comfortable for our family adventure. Close to tram lines, canal boat rides, walking to most museums, town and numerous shopping, dining and historical areas and a super-market and great coffee house next store.
The house is light, airy - directly across from a park and very quiet at night and early morning. Time to or from Schipol was about 30 minutes
Marijnte is a gracious and attentive host - she checked with us several times before arrival, while we were there and afterwards (even though she was out of country that week) - answered all questions - check in and check-out absolutely seamless. We were met upon arrival. Everything worked well in unit: we are very active so we generally only ate breakfast in the unit and then walked, dined and toured the rest of day.
We recommend this house and area highly! A great trip! This was our first experiment with an internet house rental and it was an A+ plus experience.
A few years ago a tall friendly redheaded guy and hot blond chick moved in four doors from our home. The more we got to know them, the more it showed this young couple are the best neighbors you could ask for. We have a saying in dutch "Better to have good neighbors, than far away friends." Now we actually consider these two, friends that happen to be our neighbors! So convenient and "gezellig"! You can try to look that word up =)
Wouter is a hardworking entrepreneur currently living in between Istanbul and our hometown Amsterdam. Marijntje may seem like just the perfect 'stay at home mommy' but don't let this pretty face fool you as she also has kick ass marketing skills. Little Jo is a rockstar to be practicing her scream, it's hilarious. And Ozzie just wags his tail all day long whenever the family is complete. This loving family has a natural kindness and have built this incredibly beautiful home, which all Amsterdam locals envy.
Wouter and Marijntje will make sure you have the best stay in Amsterdam EVER! If they are not in town not to worry! We will be right next door for any given support you may need.
We also look forward meeting you!
Your temporary neighbors, - Stacey & Jason.
