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 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!
My family had a wonderful time here. The location could not be any better, quite yet right next to great restaurants and walking distance to get some snack foods and drinks. The home was clean and clutter free enabling us to relax after a long day walking through Amsterdam. When I return to Amsterdam I would look here first for a place to stay. Emke thanks so much for opening your home for my family to experience a few days living in a canal home in the Jordan.
We really enjoyed this house. As the owner says, it has lot of charm. The house is very lightful in all of the rooms of the house. You could enjoy having breakfast or dinner looking at the canal. The house is perfect for family of 5 people. Very clean when we arrived. Very well placed in the center of the Jordaan. I highly recommend this house.
Emke, the owner, will try that your stay in the house be the best.
This is a lovely family home in an ideal location on a quiet canal. If you are fortunate enough to stay here, you will have the experience of living in Amsterdam in the best way possible.
Each of the bedrooms we used was on its own floor with its own modern bathroom (mine had both a shower and a large tub). We were only provided access to two bedrooms (that's all we needed), so I cannot describe the third. The main floor is the kitchen / dining floor. The kitchen is well equipped for serious cooking and the dining area has a beautiful view over the canal. We did not use the fireplace but I am sure it would have been delightful had the weather been cooler. On the top floor there is a comfortable living room that also provides access to a roof deck with a great view.
Emke was very responsive and helpful. She was a great Airbnb host.
You must be able to climb a lot of steep, narrow stairs. Also, we had some difficulty understanding how to open the front windows - perhaps the host can explain, or provide a fan.
Overall, I can highly recommend this house.
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!
