James & Lina are absolutely fabulous hosts. They were both extremely responsive, patient with all are questions and had an array of great recommendations.
Their apartment is absolutely beautiful, comfortable and in an amazing location. Myself and 4 other girlfriends stayed for 3 nights and the apartment accommodated all our needs and tastes perfectly. There is a large double bedroom and then a smaller double bedroom which was extremely comfortable.
Their apartment was spotless, plenty of clean towels available and we were told to help ourselves to tea and coffee etc. Although we didn't spend a lot of time in the apartment it was such a homely place with a true Dutch ambiance.
As mentioned, James and Lina are very forthcoming with recommendations - We were so impressed with the area that the apartment is located in. It is so close to the train station, Anne Frank's House, Dam Square and so many other great places that are a 'must see'!
James and Lina's food recommendations were fabulous also! As James and Lina told us before we arrived, we would definitely recommend staying away from the main tourist areas and venturing through some of the really pretty cobbled side streets where you can find great cafes, restaurants etc.
I would not hesitate in recommending James and Lina's apartment to anyone who is taking a trip to Amsterdam. They were a pleasure to deal with and we are so happy that we found their apartment!
James and Lina were great hosts! They were very quick to respond to any questions we had before and during our stay. They (email hidden) before our stay that answered any questions I had, and provided an additional guide at the apartment along with books on Amsterdam.
The apartment is clean, bright and quiet at night. It's in a great location very close to the 9 Streets shopping, Anne Frank House, Jordaan, canal tours, etc. Highly recommend this apartment - would definitely stay there again if I come back to Amsterdam.
Lina and James were the perfect Airbnb hosts - they answered all our questions quickly, they were very accommodating with our check-out time and it felt like they had you the guest in mind. The flat is absolutley gorgeous and it's in a really central location for a decent price. If you want a good night's sleep and a lovely warm shower in the morning before you set off for the day - stay here!
We spent three great days in James & Lina Apartment.
It was well-finished, comfortable, clean.
The apartment is close to the center of amsterdam, and most of the hotspots are at walking distance.
They are excellent host with a constant communication.
I would definitely book again their house.
Everything was just great! The appartment is beautiful, very well located with a great view. We had some beautiful time. Thank you James and LIna!
We spent 5 wonderful days in James & Lina Apartment.
It was spacious, comfortable, clean and everything was available for our use without any restrictions. The apartment was near to most of the hot spots in town, supermarkets and everything we needed.
In the end, it was a great experience and i would book again their house without thinking twice on it.
James and Lina's flat is beautiful and in a great location. They kept up excellent communications throughout and were very prompt in responding to questions. Highly recommended. Thanks James & Lina!
The appartment is perfect for 4 people : good location and very very clean. A great living room and a small american kitchen that was perfect for breakfast and feel at home. It was near many restaurants, and 15 min ride to museums.
Very good place and James is a perfect host.
James' place was fantastic. You couldn't ask for a better location. We walked from the Train Station, and it was right on the first canal on Sengel, minutes walking distance to everything else. There was a trendy cafe literally on the first floor that we had a snack and drank at every day, plus other little cafes within a half block. The RLD was about a 10 minute walk East, Heineiken Brewery about 15 minutes Southeast, and some nicer bars and restaurants in Jordaan 5-10 minutes West. There was also Vondelpark about 10-15 minutes south, which was a great park for a morning jog if you're into that.
About the actual place - it was really nice. The master bedroom was spacious and light during the day, but also the shutters provided plenty of darkness to sleep in a little. The second bedroom was nice as well, a little smaller, but that's what a 2nd bedroom is for. It still fit a double bed comfortably. Living room was huge and very clean, with double doors to open to let in some natural air and listen to the sounds of the canal.
Overall, it was a fantastic experience for us staying at James' place. Would highly recommend it to all travelers.
A wonderful apartment in a great location. We were in Frankfurt on business for a week for the Music Messe, and James' apartment was our welcoming home away from home. It was quick and easy to travel back and forth to the Exhibition Hall on Frankfurt's great public transportation system, and really nice at the end of long days to return to a genuine neighborhood near the river of shops and great restaurants. James was the perfect host and we would definitely stay there again.
Lina & James were my first air bnb guests...so it was exciting for me as you can imagine. I can honestly say that if they are the prototype air bnb guest then I can recommend this to everyone! My house was super clean and neat. Like there hadn't been anybody there. Communication went polite and smooth all the way and they left a thank you note. Sweet!
Good folks! Let them in 4 sure! :-)
It was a pleasure to have James and Lina in our B&B .

They left the apartment in perfect condition.
I can recommend them as being your next guests.
