Laidback but adventures!
Maarten's apartment is in a great location in Jordaan really close to 9 Streets. The apartment was really easy to find and in a lovely street with lots of nice bars, restaurants and shops.
Maarten was a great host and gave us lots of excellent recommendations as well as useful information like maps, info regarding how to get the bus back to the airport etc.
The apartment itself was very clean and comfortable and an ideal base from which to explore Amsterdam.
I would highly recommend renting Maarten's apartment if you are planning a stay in Amsterdam, we had a great time!
Maarten's apartment is absolutely great. It was a pleasure to stay there. The location is amazing! Good transit access and walkable from the center of town. And Maarten was very accessible and helpful in getting us oriented in Amsterdam. If and when we return, we will certainly try to stay at Maarten's again. Highly recommended!
Maarten's apartment is great. Very clean, homely and in a good location. We had no problems during our stay.Maarten is a very good host, responsive and friendly.
Tip: Check out the bar Festina Lente just round the corner from the apartment. Great little place with good food and board games.
Thanks for everything Maarten. Would definitely come back and stay again.
Apparemment super agréable dans un quartier équivalent au marais parisien : un super WE!
L'appartement de Maarten est très confortable, très beau et parfaitement situé à Amsterdam. Maarten est un hôte très accueillant, c'était parfait ! merci
We loved our 6 day stay in Maarten’s flat – the apartment was perfectly situated in the heart of the Jordaan, a stone’s throw from great shops in the 9 Streets and cool bars. It’s a thirty second walk from the supermarket which was super convenient, and no more than 15 minutes from all the sights and sounds of Central Amsterdam.
Maarten was a really welcoming host. He met us when we arrived in the flat, helped us with our bags and was full of great ideas for what to do during our stay. He was in daily contact with us making sure that everything in the flat was okay and that we had plenty of things to do, and his friends at Baskets (the cool shoe shop next door) were able to help us with day to day things like booking taxis and restaurant recommendations.
The flat was very well furnished and accurately matched the description and photographs on the website. It was clean, and everything worked well. A previous reviewer had said that there was a problem with the shower, but we found that it worked perfectly.
The bed was amazingly comfortable – better than any hotel we’ve ever stayed in, which, overlooking a quiet courtyard, made for a very restful night’s sleep. The apartment was very well heated – even in late December we were very cosy.
Thanks Maarten!! We would love to stay here again on another trip to Amsterdam.
We had a lovely time at Maarten's place, making Amsterdam our favorite city we visited in Europe.
Maarten and his friend were incredibly accomodating the entire time, giving us great recommendations and aiding us in getting settled when we got in. He's just a nice guy, and it's comforting to know that someone is looking out for you.
The place itself was lovely, with nice natural light, bathroom and bed. A good bed is often hard to come by on AirBNB, and this one allowed for some nice, comfortable sleep.
Location-wise, this apartment was perfect. The Jordaan area is very design-oriented and has some really great shops. It's incredibly close to all attractions you'd want to see, and we felt comfortable and in the mix, even during the incessant hail storms.
We will make a point to come back soon!
Maarten was very responsive and immediately confirmed the request which was nice. I rented his flat in the Jordaan for my friend and his wife as a wedding gift and they thoroughly enjoyed the flat during their week in Amsterdam. They had excellent comments about the location and cleanliness. If I am ever in Amsterdam or better said when I am in AMS again i will definitely check with Maarten. Great Experience!!!!!!!!
Maarten was a fantastic host. He was very easy to reach and gave us a lot of advices on restaurants, shopping, and activities in the area.
His apartment is absolutely ideal. It is very spacious and full of light. It is perfectly located meters away from the 9 streets and Jordaan.
Maarten also left us his bike which was very nice of him, even if eventually we didn't use it.
I would strongly recommend Maarten and his apartment. Both had a big part to play in the success of our weekend getaway!
Amazing location, beautiful flat, great host! Highly recommend. Thanks Maarten. Ksenia
