From Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
this is a nice apartment pretty accurately described by the hosts.
i had been to amsterdam before and knew the area around
oosterpark rather well, which is why i chose the particular apt.
in one sentence, we were very pleased with our stay there; the
place is spacious, clean, well equipped, etc. if i visit amsterdam
in the future, i will certainly want to stay there again if feasible.
Our stay can be summed up in one word - Fantastic! Fabienne answered all of our questions and ensured we had all the information we needed to make sure we got to the apartment without any problems. Fabienne and Joris are lovely and they made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived at the apartment and left us with a helpful guide to their home and the surrounding area. The apartment itself is gorgeous and we were sad to leave our home in Amsterdam behind when it was time to leave.
There's talk of us making a return trip next year and if we do I'm sure we'll be back in contact to book again :-)
Please bear in mind that some things I found good, or bad, might not apply to you. So don't just look at the stars, read the review!
Very nice apartment, clean and well-stocked with pots/pans, blankets, towels, etc. Versatile in terms of where to sleep. A nice outdoor area with table/chairs and a hammock. Excellent location -- near the park, market, train station, stores, restaurants, and many of our local friends. Somewhat noisy neighborhood because people live outside in the summer; that's just how this city is, didn't bother us.
The hosts were everything one could hope for. Good communication, flexible and accommodating with arrangements, came through as promised (meeting at the specified time with keys and a tour), and even helped us to carry stuff in. They left detailed information on the kitchen table, with the wifi password right on top. And they were nice!
We did have one issue with the place, that might not be a problem for someone else. They use perfumed laundry detergent and the master bedroom, in particular, stunk (of the perfume) so badly that I couldn't sleep there until we'd had the window open for two weeks and it wasn't so intense. Also the WCs had their own special perfume which we found challenging. I'm the sensitive one but everyone in my family noticed.
We also had to move some low-placed breakables, so our children wouldn't break them. The hosts had no problem with this.
Overall we were quite happy to be here and would come back to the same place. And we recommend it to you.
Exactly as described in the text and the photographs give a good idea of what to expect. Very clean and well equipped. Excellent information provided made the journey from Schiphol very easy. Very good information provided on the best places to eat and drink. Museumplein easy to reach on the number 3 tram and the old centre of Amsterdam can be reached by a pleasant walk along the Amstel or by tram or bike. Check in and out very easy and flexible. We felt very much at home and would thoroughly recommend this spacious accommodation.
A wonderful experience, beautiful apartment, perfectly placed, nice neighbours, and an excellent host. I am sorry to say that we never met Fabienne in person, but she was a perfect host nevertheless - made us feel really welcome, both adults and kids. Staying in Amsterdam - this is the place.
Great experience. Hosts were very friendly and flexible. The apartment is beautiful, has everything you could want and is in a really nice residential area. We had a great trip - it was much better than any hotel!
It could not be better , very beautiful and clean appartment,
very quiete area , and not far from center..
the hosts very friendly and easy. - Thanks a lot for the perfect place to stay . It was like living in amsterdam!
Fabienne and Joris were really cool and easygoing. Their place is really great, we had the chance to have a sunny weekend so we could have a nice apéro on their terrace.
Will definitely stay there again if I can!
Joris was an excellent guest! He was friendly, communicative, quiet, considerate, tidy and respectful of my home. Welcome here any time.
Perfect.....(email hidden)eal guest. I wholeheartedly recommend Fabienne...... SIMPLE.
Fabienne was kind and very easy going. She left the apt looking great and I hope she comes back and stay with us again!
