I'm from Amsterdam, like to do sports and work as a freelancer, making television
My partner and I both had a great time at Maaike's place. We found it tidy, comfortable and had a great kitchen. I love that the apartment is very airy and sunny with the summer weather. There are some nice retsturants in the street, plus the supermarket Albert Heijn just a 2 minute walk. The only downside was the tv and dvd weren't working. But Amsterdam I so beautiful you shouldn't be sitting inside watching tv anyway! Maaike was a lovely host we had the pleasure of meeting her a couple times. If we are In Amsterdam again we would definitely love to stay here next time :)
We can highly recommend this place!
Maaike's apartment is wonderful - nice decorated and well located close to Vondelpark and to the city center. The street is full of nice shops and cafés and public transport (trams) are just nearby. Me and my boyfriend stayed for three weeks and it was perfect! The apartment is very well planned, and there is plenty of space for two. It has a nice and quiet bedroom and a big balcony with sun the whole evening where you can enjoy a drink or a dinner, and there is also a french balcony towards the street from the living room.
The host, Maaike, was also very nice and friendly. And so was the neighbor.
Thank you Maaike! :)
What to say?! Everything about this apartment was wonderful. Clean, cozy, lots of light and generally great atmosphere.
We will definitely come back next time we're in Amsterdam. Thank you Maaike for a perfect stay!
My girlfriend and I have stayed at Maaike's place for second time in November. This time it was short staying, but it was still awesome like our previous stay on summer. Everything is clean at home and really cozy. Maaike's place has great location, especially near to Leidseplein with a lot of places to visit for dinner or meeting with friends. I was pleased to communicate with Maaike, she responses really fast.
We definitely would like to stay at Maaike's apartment while staying in Amsterdam next time!
I fell in love with Holland a few years ago and something keeps bringing me back - but the biggest downside has always been finding decent accomodation. This was my first airbnb experience and Maaike has most definitely set the bar extremely high as everything was just perfect! My sister and I stayed at Maaike's Cozy apartment for 5 nights as I was running the Amsterdam Marathon. The apartment has everything you could possibly need for a great holiday - it's clean and stylish, spacious, has an excellent kitchen and wi-fi connection, a central location with easy access to transport links. The area is safe with loads of lovely little café's, restaurants, bars and local shops. It really was a home away from home :-)
Maaike's apartment was very tidy, comfortable, and contributed to an overall very pleasant experience in Amsterdam. Great location near the Vondelpark and Museums, away from the bustle of the Centrum, yet close enough to walk to anywhere of interest. Communication with Maaike was effortless, and we had no problems with making arrangements. I would highly recommend staying at Maaike's.
We have had a great stay at Maaike's place. It is very comfortable and well located. There are many shops and restaraunts nearby. The tram stop is 2 minutes walk.
The apartment is very well very located, in an excellent position to visit the city center. It is very confortable, expecially the kitchen and the living room. Maaike, the hostess, is very helpful and nice! if we come back to Amsterdam, we'll stay there again! We recommend it!
I stayed at Maaike's place with my wife for 10 days. It's a really nice, cozy and comfortable apartment. Each day we started with running in Vondelpark that in 5 minutes from your door, really cool place to run! Then we was taking some fresh food for our breakfast at near store. And then we were going to center, that in 10-15 minutes from Maaike's place on feet and in 5 minutes on bike or (website hidden), it has really, really good location! When we decided to go to Van Gogh museum, we just picked up e-tickets and walked for 10 minutes and, voila, your at place! I hope we will be able to stay at Maaike's apartment again!
maaike's place is clean, cozy & comfortable, with great wifi, just a little far from the center (20m walk, 5m in tram, 7m bicycle) - but you get to go through vondelpark to get there, so i guess thats an advantage too.
had a great time!
