The bedroom has an original ornamental ceiling, king-sized bed, built-in wardrobes and two large original doors that close the bedroom and bathroom from the open-plan living/kitchen space.

Each piece of furniture has been chosen to create a beautiful and relaxing home. The apartment also has high-speed wireless internet, and a 32-inch Samsung flat-screen TV, DVD player and iPod speaker base.

CHECK-IN PROCEDURE

My great friend Kate that lives on the next street will meet you in person on arrival at the apartment to take you through the check-in process.

This will include welcoming you to the apartment, showing you around, explaining how everything works, giving you the keys, finalising payment for your stay and also answering any questions you might have or help you might need on booking tickets, travel arrangements, things to do and places to see - any questions, suggestions, advice or help you might need to make the most out of your stay in Amsterdam.

Kate is also available throughout your stay to answer any questions, provide suggestions and to generally be on hand should be need help or advice with anything from finding the right restaurant, renting bikes, buying gifts to take home etc.

If you would like to book my apartment, please email me ASAP.

To make a booking, I will need the names of both guests and your home address. Once these details are provided I will email you a simple rental agreement. Once you have read, signed and emailed back this agreement, together with a copy of the photo page from your passport - you are officially booked in.

No payment or deposit is needed upfront. I'm trusting that if you sign and return the rental agreement that you definitely want the apartment and will be there at the agreed check-in date and time. This method has worked very well so far with other guests.

It's a very beautiful apartment and I am sure will make a lovely base for your stay in Amsterdam.

Hello! I have a house in Surrey in the UK and am spending more time there and so have decided to share my beautiful Amsterdam 'Roets' apartment with others who are looking for a wonderful and calm oasis to stay while enjoying the many charms of central Amsterdam.

Claudine OLeary purchased this apartment in 2010

I LOVE the Plantage area of Central Amsterdam. It's green and leafy, charming, full of restaurants and local cafes. It's very safe, very quiet and provides a very local and authentic Amsterdam.

It's the old Jewish quarter and is steeped in history. The location is BEAUTIFUL. In the heart of the city and yet away from the tourists and crowds.

I bought in this area because I have great friends closeby and I love the mix of people and how quiet it is even though in the heart of the city.

This area of Amsterdam is incredibly beautiful. Quiet, relaxed, residential, friendly, safe and full of culture, museums, canals and the Amsterdam University.

Locals sitting outside in the sunshine in cafe terraces, children playing, students at the University and locals going about their daily lives.

A GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
A big, bright and airy apartment in a quiet, non-touristy section of Amsterdam. A quick walk to the grocery, coffee house, Metro and tram made it a very convenient place to stay. Having a washer/dryer was great as we were arriving in Amsterdam halfway through our trip and knew we wouldn't have to bring as much as a result. And many thanks to Kate who was most helpful.

PERFECT APARTMENT.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a lot of time searching for just the right place and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Correspondence and booking with Claudine was a breeze, and the apartment was even better than the pictures show. Spotless, comfortable, and beautiful. The king-size bed was great as were all the amenities. Kate was waiting for us outside the apartment, showed us around, and gave us her number in case we had any questions or concerns during our stay. A nice touch was having something to drink and nibble on upon our arrival. The bookshelf was stacked with all the tour guides you could possibly need. Great location. Transportation was easy and fast. The local cafes were wonderful! Writing this makes us want to go back. Thank you again, Claudine and Kate, for making our stay in Amsterdam so memorable!

GOOD VIBES.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated our 40th anniversary at this apartment and loved it. We walked everywhere, although the metro is close. We're in our sixties and the flight of stairs was not an issue. Booking was easy. Yury was helpful and kind. This apartment was VERY clean. It also has a very nice "vibe." The photos do not do it justice. We ate at two restaurants on our street and we're very happy with both. Thanks for the champagne!

I hope to see you again. Oh, I found the apartment manual helpful. It was shorthand for operating the appliances.

PROPERTY TITLE IS 100% ACCURATE IN EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent five fantastic days in Amsterdam. From the moment we starting looking for apartments to rent, Claudine was extremely helpful and very quick with responses. We wanted more space then a hotel, wanted to feel like a local, wanted the option to cook, and be located close to everything yet have some quiet time! This apartment was everything and more. We could walk everywhere, just awesome but could pick up a tram or the Metro within a few walking minutes. We have rented from VRBO before and so appreciate when the pictures and rental descriptions are accurate and Claudine's detailed description is exactly right. So many great things about the apartment including a king sized bed. It is also awesome to be able to open the windows, be able to cook in a fully stocked kitchen, and just feel at home at the end of a full day of sightseeing. We thought it was a very nice touch to provide a few sodas and water and beer in the refrigerator upon arrival.

The apartment was very clean and everything was in working order.

In addition to Claudine, her friend Kate who met us when we arrived she was great. She was so flexible with our arrival time and so understanding when we arrived about an hour earlier than planned. Kate provided a thorough property overview and shared several great restaurant recommendations which we selected and they were awesome. An extra benefit to the location, there is a great breakfast place right next door in one direction and if you like fondue, the other direction has a very local awesome restaurant with many goodies but to die for fondue.

We just loved our time in Amsterdam and would stay in this apartment again without a doubt. We would also recommend this location to friends and family.

We had a super experience staying in this apartment.
