I work in the social sector, as a manager of a homeless shelter. I like to travel, as much as possible. Short city trips, but also longer holidays to Asia or South America. As nice as these trips are, I always like coming back to Amsterdam.

In spite of my having made a mistake in my arrival time, Joen very kindly arranged for the neighbor to open the apt for me. The next morning he showed up and was very helpful and friendly. The one drawback is that quite heavy painting and renovation work was done during my stay outside in the building staircase and hallway and I think I should have been told of it before renting. They never started before 9 and were always finished by the time I came back but as a matter of principle I believe people should know ahead of time when something like this is happening.
The best air bnb experience ever! Koen is an outstanding, generous & kind host with an amazing attitude to life! He greeted us, helped us orientate & made us tea & left beers. The place itself is so great! Large, artistic & fully equipped for cooking etc. so pleasant to hang out in. We were sad to leave. Thank you Koen! You are a champion!
Koen was a brilliant host, although I did not meet him in person as he was travelling, his girlfriend welcomed us and gave us plenty of helpful tips. The location is great and the apartment was quite spacious. I recommend it!
Koen greeted us upon our arrival, gave us excellent information about the public transit, guides for visiting Amsterdam and ideas for local restaurants. The location of his apartment was great and it was great fun to feel a part of local culture. The living area was sunny and complete with a piano. We enjoyed our stay.
This was just the sort of apartment we like for a short city break. Quirky decor (in a good way) and with all the amenities we needed. Ideally located - away from the tourist centre but an easy tram ride into town.
Koen was extremely welcoming and helpful and provided all the information we needed. I'm sure we will be back.
Recommend that you buy a 2 or 3 day bus/tram pass which are great value as you will probably make a number of journeys each day.
We didn't get to meet Koen but his friend Lotte was very welcoming and gave us lots of helpful info about bike hire, maps etc, and suggestions for things to do. The apartment was great - just like the pictures, and very clean and comfortable. Lovely neighbourhood - quiet, but with handy things nearby - post office, supermarket and restaurants (we loved 'van mechelen' near the supermarket) and a 5 minute walk to Vondelpark. Would definitely recommend this apartment!
We had a realy good time at koen's apartment. perfect location in a nice neighborhood close by to the park and the center. koen was helpfull with whatever information we needed and at the same time our privacy was well kept.
We will surely return to koen's apartment in our next visit to Amsterdam.
We enjoyed our stay at Koen's apartment! All was as described. The neighborhood was very convienent to all the sights via the tram. Less than a 20 minute trip to center of town. The nearby park was very nice and if we had more time would have liked to explore on bikes. We did not meet Koen in person, but he contacted us a number of times to make sure all was going well. He also gave us a contact number for a friend if we had trouble or needed anything.
Koen's place was great for us. The location was perfect to get into the centre of Amsterdam easily, while being out of the hustle and bustle - exactly what we wanted to see a more 'real' Amsterdam! The apartment itself was clean and well kitted out, but basic. It's close enough to grocery shops for us to pick up stuff to cook, and the area is quiet and friendly. Although our plans meant that we didn't meet Koen, he sent us a few messages over the days we were there to check that we had everything we needed. We'd definitely stay again!
Charming apartment and friendly host. Everything was great!
Koen welcomed us warmly and gave us suggestions of places to eat and advice about what to do during our stay ( a lovely bike ride to Durgendam, e.g. )
We loved the apartment, cozy and relaxing and the neighborhood of course, close to the city centre but away from touristic area.
We would recommend to everybody.
Thank you Koen for a really comfortable stay!
