Male from Scotland now living in Amsterdam.
Enjoy all things fun, meeting people, cycling, having a laugh - always joking.....
We are a family of 3 who are very friendly and welcoming.
We loved our stay with Neil! He was super accommodating and the back room was fantastic, everything we needed including bike rental too! The location was also top notch! Thanks Neil!
Neil was very accommodating when my wife and I stayed in Amsterdam, offering helpful tips on where to eat and how to get around. The room was great for our needs and provided us privacy, yet we still had to walk through Neil's apartment to get to it, which was fine in the end.
A great room in a great area and easy to walk or get a quick tram into the city centre. Would recommend - thanks Neil!
Everything was like described. The cabin was spacious, clean and in a quiet environment. Neil was a very friendly host. Clear recommendation.
Neil made getting to his cabin very easy and provided us with a lot of information both beforehand and once we arrived. The cabin was clean and suited our needs very well. Although Neil was gone for the first few days, he was very good at emailing us when we had questions. The location is fairly quiet and residential, but a quick tram ride to the cit centre. We were worried that having to walk through someone's house in order to get to our rental space would be awkward, but it really wasn't and we were always given privacy.
We had an excellent stay at Neil's cabin. Neil was very quick to respond to our questions and very helpful with our stay in Amsterdam. He provided great recommendations close to the house. The house is just outside the city center which we loved - very quite at night while we slept but plenty to do during the day (bike rides or runs in Vondelpark, lively neighborhood restaurants and bars void of tourists, etc). It was super easy to ride a bike into the center (5 min) or walk which we did a couple of days. Highly recommend!
Me and my girlfriend at a great time at Neil`s place. His apartment is located in a beautiful part of Amsterdam near the Vondelpark, a 5-10 minute tram ride away from the centre.
The cabin in his garden were we stayed is basic but has everything we needed for a short stay. The bed is comfortable and the facilities all worked well. Neil and his family are very friendly and thez always gave us good advice when we needed it. We can definitely recommend to stay at their place.
Neil truly deserves the SuperHost tag. He and his family were welcoming and made you feel at home. The cabin was cosy and private, accessed through Neil's apartment. We were also able to rent bikes from Neil at a great price, which was very convenient for getting around Amsterdam (with the trams, cars, and bikes, its better to travel like an Amsterdamer than to try to walk the city!).
The cabin had everything you might need for a quick stay in Amsterdam. The bed was comfortable and there were a ton of tourism materials on the desk to peruse. It was raining quite a bit while we were there, and the cabin got a bit damp, but it was a great location to base your Amsterdam adventure and lay your head at night. The location was great, as it was convenient to downtown and the Vondelpark and museum area.
We two stayed in Neil's cabin for several nights. It was warm and the futon-style bed was comfortable. The facilities were quite adequate for us and just as advertised.
Travel to and from central Amsterdam proved very simple, with lots of places to eat where we could stop off for a meal. But don't neglect exploring the residential streets around Neil's place - there are unexpected cafes and shops within a few blocks. We particularly enjoyed the large and varied market a few streets away on a Saturday (not sure what other days it operates). Dozens of stalls of all kinds aimed at the local residents - hardly a tourist in sight.
Although the cabin has wifi, the signal was very variable.
The cabin was adorable, exactly what i was looking for, and very easy to get everywhere in amsterdam. Neil & Magda were great hosts, and communication was good. Would def recommend.
Neil and his family are great hosts! We indeed had a nice time in Amsterdam and Neil was very helpful with where we could go to have dinner. The cabin is clean and indeed cosy. Thanks for everything!
Neil is an enthusiastic, genial and appreciative person to have around. Very informative and encouraging to hear his approach to hosting, as a more experienced and confident host, in fact a SuperHost! He was a considerate and helpful guest. You are welcome back here at a moment's notice. Proost!
Neil is a nice guy, we loved having him at our place. Thanks also for the good review you left behind, Neil! He stayed for one night, the place looks like not used! See you next year!

Neil is a fantastic host who will do his best to make you feel welcome. I have stayed with him a few times and nothing is too much trouble for him. He even helped me out when my bank card was stolen!
A true gentleman and one of the few people left in this world who looks out for others
I met Neil while living in Amsterdam (we are members of some of the same expat groups) and he has become a good friend, he has hosted quite a few people on Airbnb now and has been going on about how great it is!
He has a great place just outside of the centre with a separate "summer house" which is the ideal Airbnb 'room'.
As much as we rib each other Neil is a great guy and Id recommend staying with him
Known Neil since he came to Amsterdam. Always a laugh and an all round good lad.
I have known Neil for about ten years, he is and continues to be one of my closest friends. If you are thinking of staying with Neil, I really can't recommend it highly enough. He is always a fantastic host who will do the utmost to make you feel welcome. Whether you want someone to engage with or someone who will leave you in peace you won't go far wrong.
As for his house, it's in a really nice quiet location near Vondelspark and easily accessible using public transport. No more than 10 minutes from the centre of the city. He has a fully furnished self contained guest house with it's own kitchen and shower room which is a fantastic little hideaway. Go on, you know you want to!
Good guy, very considerate, fun and welcoming, very approachable and willing to make accommodations for others. Room is in brilliant location, literally 10 minutes from the center. Don't let the hat in his photo put you off, a great base for your stay in Amsterdam.
