Absolutely spectacular!!! Best place in all of Amsterdam.

  • 5 of 5
This was our 11th trip to Amsterdam staying in hotels, apartments, houseboats and castles, but this was by far the best place ever!

Dealing with the owner Feargal was a complete joy and although he could not be there in person to meet us, his associate Lena addressed all of our needs on both our arrival and departure, including calling us a taxi to the airport.

I can only echo the comments already stated but from my personal notes;

36 steep steps up to the front door! By the time I got both suitcases up there I thought I was going to die! You then walk into a foyer that leads to a restroom with toilet and sink to the left and the main house to the right. There is a door that leads into the large living and dining room along with a small balcony and the kitchen with washroom towards the back. Here you will find a sink, stove, fridge, freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. There is a TV, DVD player and stereo system in the living room along with a nice comfy sectional leather sofa. Going back through the door into the foyer leads to a staircase (17 steps) that takes you up to the bedrooms. To the right are two bedrooms, one with a sink, the other with a balcony much like that on the lower level while straight ahead is the master bedroom followed by the master bathroom which is equipped with a sink, toilet, stall shower and claw-foot bathtub. Just outside the door is another door which houses another toilet and sink. Behind one final door is yet another staircase that takes you up to the roof garden which is huge and I'm sure is quite nice but I'm not going back up there!!! The staircase is very rickety and Lena told us only one person can go up at once! Still, when you get up there it does offer nice views of the City, and it has a BBQ grill. Good luck getting your food from the kitchen up there though!

That was from my notes during our initial walk-through of the apartment.

All I can say we enjoyed the next ten nights very much indeed from the excellent location to the stunning canal view to the peaceful quiet at night. Everything seemed to be perfectly in place save for maybe a TV in one of the upstairs bedrooms, especially if you're not traveling alone which thankfully we were because as the person before me stated, there is only one bathroom with bathing facilities (claw foot tub and separate shower - very nice!) which could get a bit cramped I suppose after a few nights.

I would NOT hesitate to rent this place again if we ever return!!!

Wonderful time in Amsterdam

There are more bathrooms than indicated. There is the one modern, huge bathroom with separate tub and shower, but then there is another bathroom with a sink and antique toilet on the floor with the 3 bedrooms. There is a sink in the double bed room. There is another bathroom with a sink and antique toilet on the main floor. There are huge closets in the twin bedroom and master bedroom. These rooms are very large. We walked everywhere or caught trams from the corner.. There are grocery stores and wonderful restaurants very close. We recommend Sara's Pancake House, Bistro 't Stuivertje, Tin Pan Alley, and Mauder's. The owner was quick to reply by email to any questions and we had no trouble with check in or check out.
