This was a great experience for our family. The neighbourhood was simply beautiful and friendly people everywhere. The house was excellent, clean and bright; we had a wonderful experience living in an authentic canal house which has been so nicely modernised. Check in was easy and flexible. Emma and Paul were very understanding and accommodating. All of our needs were taken care of. I guess the only sad thing was that our stay could not be longer!
Wonderful house and perfect location to visit Amsterdam! We are a couple with 2 teenage kids, they each had their own bedroom and shared a bath. We were on the floor above in the master bedroom with our own bath. Kitchen was above us and living room above that. We even enjoyed the deck on the roof during sunny August afternoons! There is a lovely street around the corner with coffee shops and restaurants and a grocery store. So convenient. We could even walk to central station to catch the train. House had a fully equipped kitchen and everything you need to feel like a true Amsterdammer. Excellent rental!
Thank you emke for letting us stay in your beautiful house. Paul was very helpful and sorted everything out for us
With best wishes liz
We had a wonderful stay at Emke's canal house (group of two couples). The neighborhood is perfect, the house is beautifully decorated and spacious. Highly recommended.
Merci beaucoup Emke pour votre accueil.
Le logement est superbe et le quartier également (restos à proximité, bars, possibilité de tout faire à pieds).
Nous avons eu le calme que l'on recherchait et à 2 minutes à pieds nous étions dans les petites rue typiques, plongés dans une ambiance très sympa.
Je recommande vivement.
Emke's home is exceptional, and so is Emke ! She met us at the home and spent a long time with us explaining everything about her very large place.......5 stories in all, including a wonderful roof deck that's not beautifully finished but has amazing views of Amsterdam. The home itself is 4 stories tall with curving euro-stairs connecting each level. The stairs can be tricky for folks who are not used to steep stairs that vary in shape because they curve. But it's amazing how much space you get when you put 4 stories on top of each other in a wonderful section of Amsterdam. The home is on a nice canal in a quiet section of town that has many restaurants within several blocks. And the main section of town is only a 10-15 minute walk, so the location is perfect. Three bedrooms provide good beds and lots of space, and two showers and two toilets were plenty for the four of us. The kitchen was very well appointed and allowed us to cook dinners when we felt like staying in. There are large windows on every floor that let in lots of light, and the light just glows off the wooden floors and colored walls. It's really a beautiful place.
I spent a fantastic time at Emke's lovely canal house. The neighborhood is charming and you can find whatever you need (supermarket, cute little shops, excellent restaurants and the best mackerel sandwich ever!). And you are just a few minutes walking from the major highlights of Amsterdam. Concerning the house, you feel really at home. Living in a typical Amsterdam house like this one is an experiment per se and is part of the trip. Plus Emke and Paul (her neighbor) made everything to ease my stay. I hope I will have the occasion to spend more time in this place!
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The host was amazing, was always reachable and willing to help with anything we needed. We had an amazing 5 nights at this home, the location couldn't have been any better, was a quiet, relaxing area but had many restaurants, bars and fun attractions to do! The house was even beyond what we had expected, very lit up, spacious, and clean!
Amazing place to stay, would recommend to anyone visiting Amsterdam to look into this home!
Emke's canal house is really charming! We loved it! It's decorated with style and love, like in an interior magazine. We passed some cozy days there and enjoyed the lovely athmosphere of the house, the view on the canal and the surrounding houses as well as the neighbourhood with nice restaurants, shops and a farmers market. We really hope to come back again. You can get a really good feeling about living in Amsterdam in this canal house, we fully recommend!
Emke was a very nice guest and communication with her was very easy. She treated our house with lot's of repsect as if it would be hers :-) anytime welcome again!
