Last year we bought, and completely renovated our second apartment in Amsterdam. The apartment is in the 'Old West' area which has become very trendy, but still wonderfully convenient with shops and services that are necessary. If you would like to see reviews of our other apartment in Amsterdam, the VRBO listing is #295358.
This apartment is 55 sq.meters (600 sq. ft) and has every amenity: the bedroom has a queen-size bed, flat screen cable TV on the wall (a few English-language stations), a DVD player with a nice selection of DVDs, two large closets, a comfortable chair and a dresser. Large glass doors open on to the terrace, and the bedroom door can be closed for privacy. Off the hallway is a beautiful large shower,and there is a separate toilet. The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances, including a Nespresso machine, microwave and dishwasher. The hallway leads into the nice-sized living room with a comfortable sofa, dining table, small bar, and bookcase. There are two large, double-glazed windows (it's very quiet) that look out onto the street below. Off the living room is a separate small room with futon, desk, computer, printer/copier/scanner, and a CD player. We also have a Vonage phone for free calls to the United States, and Canada and high-speed internet Wi-Fi.
It's the only apartment on the floor. The stairs from the outer door to the apartment are carpeted and unlike many Amsterdam apartments, are an easy walk with a landing between the first and second floor.
Good morning Joan
Stan and I are now enjoying the third day of sunshine here in Amsterdam, which I understand is something of a record.....well, keep it up I say....
We appreciate your apartment so very much....everything about it show so much thought and choice of quality, that it continues to make us happy...I especially love the wall cabinet above the sink in the bathroom... It is truly a thing of beauty... We leave the doors open so we can see all the mirrors reflecting all the mirrors...
We have walked and walked and continue to find new areas and shops and find all the women gorgeous and the men Hollywood good looking as well... And so tall!
We have another day left after today and then it's home to California... Which isn't too shabby

My husband and I used to exchange our New York City apartment with a good friend who lives in Amsterdam. After five or six years of loving the city, we decided to buy an apartment here. We have been coming to Amsterdam two or three times a year, each time for a month or two, for about 12 years. We decided to buy another apartment here as an investment. This apartment is also useful for friends, and family who come and visit us from New York as well as using it as a rental.
We searched for many months for a second apartment. In addition to the price, our main criteria were whether we would like to live in it and its location, thinking of friends and renters. We found this one. We both agreed on it right away. It had great potential, and we knew that with a serious renovation and tasteful furniture, it would be a very nice place.
This is a very comfortable apartment in a great location. Everything is new, including linens, pots, pans, dishes, etc. There is lots of kitchenware. We also have a portable travel crib
We have some very good friends who take care of the apt. They are wonderfully helpful to any renter, and lovely people. They will meet you with the keys, and explain anything you need to know about the apt or the city. They live a few blocks away should there be any problems. They renovated the apartment during the winter, and so they know it well.
Oud West has become one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Amsterdam. It borders on the Jordaan and is a 10-minute walk to the center. Our apartment has 5 tram lines (the best way to travel in Amsterdam) within a half-block. The museum area (Museumplein) and Vondel Park are 10 minutes by tram (three tram stops). Leidseplein is within walking distance.We are a few stops from the Dam and Centraal Station. We are close to the Anne Frank House.There are supermarkets, drug stores, a laundromat, as well as many great restaurants, cafes, bars, and small retail shops, all within a block or two. It is a wonderful mix of many small, boutique type shops as well as neighborhood stores and services.
