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 am now spending much more time in the UK 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.
I don't know how I forgot to write a review upon our return home in November, but better late than never. My husband and I stayed in Claudine's apartment for a week in November. We were in town for an animation festival at the Eye. THIS APARTMENT WAS AMAZING...so clean, every little detail taken care of. The space was beautiful and full character. Thankfully it was located just outside of the busy area of the city, so we could get a restful sleep in the super comfy king sized bed. I couldn't have asked for more. A grocery store around the corner, a great pizza place down the street, and the building was so quiet. My husband and I like to walk so we didn't use any mode of transport other than our feet, but there were options all around us. The walk to the city center was beautiful. I can't recommend an apartment more. Oh...Kate!!! Kate is the wonder woman who looks after the apartment. She's great. Met us SO early in the morning to check us out. Even had a car waiting to take us to the airport (FYI all cabs about €50 to the airport). If your debating...just rent this place. You won't regret it!!
We really enjoyed this apartment, which was in a quiet neighborhood and very accessible to trams and the Metro. However, if you wanted to walk everywhere, you could do so as well. There's also a grocery store nearby, which allows for cooking/evenings in after long days of wandering about. We also used the movie theatre/cafe a block away a few times, which was fun. The apartment is modern, clean, and just altogether lovely. The only recommendation I have is to bring an eye mask for sleeping if your apartment or house at home is protected from streetlights. The bedroom has lots of filtered light. That's not a complaint, just a note if the next renter needs it. Altogether, this relaxing, quiet apartment made our week-long stay in Amsterdam over the holidays perfect - even better than our past three visits there!
My husband and I arrived on 12/12/2014 and were met by Kate who walked us through the apartment - she also provided numerous suggestions for restaurants, tours and a great yoga studio around the corner. We walked everywhere! The apartment and it's amenities were amazing, everything we needed was provided and I would stay here again without questions. It was also very easy to book - no issues at all. I've travelled a lot and have very high standards - this apartment exceeded my expectations.
My wife and I found this apartment to be all we had hoped it would be- roomy, clean, ideally located to the metro, quiet, and a safe neighborhood. There were no unpleasant surprises and the communications with the owner were excellent. We would stay again.
My husband and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for one week in October to explore this fabulous city. We loved it! My husband is very tall (6'8'') and the king size very comfortable bed and large shower with rainfall shower head were greatly appreciated. We were worried about the location at first, but it was perfect. Nice quiet neighborhood within easy walking distance to many sites and readily available metro and tram lines to the rest. Very easy to navigate this city. Nice to have grocery store within 2 blocks. Having laundry, kitchen and internet access made everything so much easier. Fabulous place to stay. Nice to have Kate in town in case of any problems. Great for couples! Only one flight of stairs which is great for Amsterdam (trust me). Would definitely stay here again if in Amsterdam.
My husband and I stayed in Claudine’s charming apartment for a week in October. We had a great time! We loved Amsterdam and the apartment. Dealing with both Claudine and Kate could not have been easier. They provided prompt and helpful responses to any and all questions and concerns. Kate arranged for a taxi to pick us up at 6:15 A.M. on the morning of our departure and said we should call her at 6:20 AM if it did not show up. Thankfully, it did. The apartment was in a great location, convenient without being in a hub of tourists. It was very comfortable and so much nicer than a hotel room. Staying there really enhanced our vacation and we would gladly stay there again. Thank you, Kate and Claudine.
