Martine is an excellent host, I was meeting my girlfriend in Amsterdam, as I live in Scotland and she in Switzerland, and we encountered problems such as my flight getting postponed to the next day, and having a marathon on the day that we were leaving; in every instance Martine helped us out and informed us. Her apartment is amazing, very well decorated and with all the amenities that you would need. The narrow 4 flights of stairs can seem daunting at first, but you get used to it. Martine has a guest manual which explains how to get around and where to go to, absolutely fantastic.
What a great apartment is a great locale. Has everything you need close by. It's right on a Main Street, but noise was not an issue. Martine left a great guide to the apartment and the neighborhood and sights. Just keep in mind it's a fourth floor Dutch walk up (aka, steep and narrow stairs). We would definitely stay again and highly recommend.
great apartment, great location, great host. Had a wonderful weekend in Amsterdam, and Martine's apartment was a great homebase. convenient to trams, restaurants, museums, markets. Additionally, the apartment itself was a delightful place to return to after a day in the city. Would heartily recommend.
Beautiful apartment, central area surrounded by great cafes & restaurants. Martine is a exceptional host - providing a booklet with sightseeing, transport, restaurant & apartment appliance info. Highly rated.
We had an excellent stay in Amsterdam! The apartment is great - pretty, functional and comfortable. All amenities are available, from kitchenware to the dryer. The stairs are a little on the steep side... But that seems to be very common in the city!
The location is excellent as well, practically next to the Museumplein. There are quite a few nice restaurants in the area, plus a supermarket - which was very helpful. Central Amsterdam is quite small... If you're willing to walk a little, no bicycle or tram pass is necessary.
Martine provided us with information regarding restaurants and transportation services which was of great help. Communication was smooth altogether.
We certainly recommend staying in this apartment! Too bad there wasn't more time to enjoy it, with all of Amsterdam waiting for us...
This apartment is just perfect! Bright, light, clean and spacious. You're right in the middle of everything that has to do with art. The balcony is just lovely and Martine is the nicest host. We where welcomed with flowers and wine. A great start of a perfect week.
Martine was such a sweet heart! She left a clean tidy and incredible apartment for us. We had a great time there in amsterdam and also in the terrace of the apartment. Everything was better than what we expected and she was so nice all the time, she even wrote us to wish a safe flight back home. The location was also perfect to move through amsterdam.
We can only recommend Martine's place, and as AirBNB hosts ourselves, you can take our work for it that the place is great.
We were there for 6 days and nights in July, and we able to profit from the wonderful terrace during the gorgeous summer evenings.
The flat is clean and beautiful, light and airy, nicely decorated. Very comfy bed, great bathroom, with a nice, equipped kitchen. Beautiful fresh flowers and a cold bottle of wine to great us, perfect for starting our stay.
Very close to MuseumPlijn (maybe 5 minutes walk, max), De Pijp, the canals, with a tramway stop literally in front of the door (line 3). For the airport it is convenient and cheap: bus 197 will take you very close to the flat for a simply 4€ ticket.
Communication with Martine was great, she is friendly and easygoing!
I would only add that - as is the case in all amsterdam flats - the stairs are quite steep and there is no elevator, but that's the true a'dam experience.
Great place in a great city !
My mum and I stayed in Martine's beautiful home for two nights last weekend and had an absolutely perfect stay.
The communication in the run up to our stay was very clear and easy and transport from the airport to the apartment was really simple. The location of the apartment is perfect for sightseeing in Amsterdam - walking to the museum square takes just a few minutes and we also walked to the Vondelpark, Leidesplein and the Jordaan area very easily. There is a tram stop right outside too if you're not much of a walker.
The apartment itself if very airy and clean and decorated beautifully. We loved the sunny terrace and the bed is huge with a very comfortable mattress. There's an iPod dock so you can easily play some music whilst enjoying a drink on the terrace and Martine was kind enough to leave the fridge stocked with cold drinks and a few essentials like butter, tea and coffee.
Martine is a lovely host, very friendly and very generous with her home. She had left us a big folder full of recommendations for sights, restaurants and shops as well as instructions on how to use the appliances in her home - we felt at home within minutes of arriving.
We were especially pleased that Martine happily accommodated our request to collect our bags later in the afternoon so that we didn't have to carry them around the city on the day of our flight.
One thing to note is that this is a top floor flat with a few flights of steep stairs - perfectly normal for Amsterdam but something to keep in mind if you have any mobility issues.
Thank you Martine, hope to stay with you again another time.

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend at Martine's apartment. Our stay was very comfortable. Martine was a great host. Mike and I are coffee addicts, so we made some good use out of her espresso machine. The location was perfect! We walked to the Albert Cuyp market and had some amazing meals in the area. We would definitely stay at Martine's place again. Thanks again!
An AirBnB host as a guest is fantastic to have stay with you as they know all the little things to be perfect guests and an absolute joy to have in your home.
I highly recommend Martine and her partner, Mat, as guests. I can easily tick all the C boxes...courteous, clean, considerate and very easy to chat with.
