Guestbook comments from the owner
I cannot say enough positive things about my family's stay at this apartment. The apartment was impeccably clean and perfect for our needs. The location was superb, surrounded by excellent restaurants, shopping, Metro stops and numerous museums and sights. We appreciated the diversity of food options that were so close by. Transportation was very convenient; no need for a rental car. It was an ideal base to explore the many wonders of Amsterdam, either on foot or with a bike.

Karin and Kick’s communication was fantastic from beginning to end. Always prompt, friendly and accurate in all of their advice and explanations. They were incredibly warm and gracious when we met at the apartment and provided us with all the important details that made our stay so comfortable and easy.

All in all we had fabulous stay and would love to return one day.

Great view, beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed this luxe apartment, right in the centre of Amsterdam, but without the noise of the city. Still, it is close to all the museums and other places of interest. The apartment was very clean, and styled beautiful. It was a pleasure to stay here!

Elegant well-appointed apartment great location

  • 5 of 5
Karin and Kick greeted us warmly at their lovely apartment, located on the Keisersgracht Canal, nearly across from the Van Loon museum and walking distance to all the museums, restaurants, attractions, and shopping of Amsterdam. The views of the canal and distinctive Dutch architecture from every window are beautiful; every restaurant and market that Karin & Kick recommended was excellent.The apartment is clean, organized,and nicely appointed with attractive comfortable furniture, all necessary supplies, and excellent appliances, including a terrific expresso maker. Everything functioned properly. Great natural light and large windows; breezes from cross ventilation and screens on windows to keep out insects. Our teenage son enjoyed having the 2nd bedroom on the main floor to himself while we were upstairs in the master bedroom. I most strongly recommend and hope to return. WiFi worked without any glitches or effort and the Bose Music Dock was great (although you should bring an adapter for Iphone 5). An interesting selection of guide books and art books about Amsterdam's history, art and culture helped us enjoy the city. Easy access from the Central Station with trams #4, #24, or #25. Beds, pillows, linens, towels are simple white, clean and functional. Bathroom is newly renovated with soft-edged marble tile, contemporary fixtures, and excellent water pressure. plenty of hot water. This apartment is much nicer than any hotel you will find in Amsterdam.

Gorgeous home

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful, centrally located apartment was just as described in the listing, and the pictures are accurate. It did not feel like a rental at all; it felt like staying in a plush hotel! Everything from the linens, to the plates, to the bathroom fittings were of top quality. The apartment looks to have been recently remodeled with a stylish aesthetic, and no expense was spared. It was also spotlessly clean and free of clutter/personal belongings. The owners were hospitable, and very easy to communicate with.

There were a few downsides. The canal was busy with loud, drunk people the first night we were there, and so we could not keep windows open. In fairness, there had been a rowing competition earlier that day, and I suppose the celebrating went on until late. We were not bothered by noise during the rest of our stay.

The apartment makes excellent use of space, but the downstairs bedroom is a bit small. Fortunately, the living areas are bright and airy, and we spent most of the time in the living room enjoying the views anyway.

In summary, you may find less expensive apartments in Amsterdam, but it is difficult to imagine that you will find one that offers greater value. This place is not a standard rental; it is clear that it is somebody's beloved pied-a-terre!

Lovely, modern and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
We love to walk and the apartment was the perfect distance for most of the major museums and local sights. It is just a few blocks from a more swinging, party part of town with dancing and restaurants but far enough away to get a peaceful nights sleep.

The owners were lovely and so understanding, especially when our flight was delayed and we were hours late meeting them. They came back to let us in our apartment for the week and were so gracious. The apartment was very clean and came with towels, sheets and even some left over dry goods for tea and such. (Don't forget to bring your own soap and shampoo though!)

The only thing I would mention is that it is on the 4th floor (wonderful views!) so if you have a problem with stairs, this would not be your best choice.

Our first time in Amsterdam was a complete success and I would absolutely stay here again. I much preferred this to a hotel and the price was best, comparably.

Beautiful canal-side apartment

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this truly lovely apartment was great - thank you so much Kick and Karin, and also Ann and Randy for welcoming us. The apartment is beautifully decorated with good quality modern facilities, and was spotlessly clean. It is also in a great location with terrific views. We were able to walk to most of Amsterdam's 'must see' sights, or take the tram that stops a couple of minutes away. We'd have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to other visitors, as we simply couldn't fault it.

Beautiful stay courtesy of gracious owners

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed here for a week while we explored Amsterdam and visited friends in Den Haag. Karin & Kick met us at the apartment as promised, even though we were a couple hours late arriving from the airport. After they patiently led us through a thorough tour of their lovely home, we were left to unpack and enjoy the great views.

We found the location ideal - within a couple blocks of restaurants that kept us tastily fed for a week (and would have for easily longer) and a very short walk to the tram and to the grocery. Nearby "Zuivere Kaffee" - highly recommended by the owners - became our "regular" breakfast stop after the first visit it.

The apartment was fully stocked with everything we needed, and although we didn't take full advantage of the nice kitchen, I did appreciate the espresso machine. I was concerned after reading several comments about the stairs, but they proved not to be a problem at all. Our beds were comfortable and it was a big help to have a washer and dryer available, particularly as Amsterdam was the middle leg of a longer trip.

We've rented a number of apartments and houses for vacation stays. Karin & Kick's home is certainly among the very best we've experienced - in quality, comfort in working with the owners, and overall value. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again myself or to recommend the apartment to my friends.

Thank you for a delightful and memorable week in Amsterdam.

Warmest regards,
Kevin, Robyn, and the girls
