Great stay - Great owner

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at here for a 3 day weekend recently. From the moment we contacted Bryan he couldn't have been nicer and more responsive. He answered all of our questions immediately and he was just as responsive when we arrived (helped us carry our luggage upstairs, explained things in the apartment and helped us get acclimated to the surrounding neighborhood. Quick walk to the tram stop (the 12 & 14 took us everywhere we needed to go - buy the 48 hour pass, because it is worth it for going in and out of town). Security deposit returned in under 24 hours. Thanks Bryan

Generous and gracious owner/host, an apartment fit for Amsterdam visit, convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

Although Bryan, our host, was expecting us, our plane landed about 45 minutes early, which made our arrival 6AM instead of 7:30AM!! After we contacting him, he came within 15 mintues and graciously helped us with our luggage! He was very helpful,willing and goes above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable - we couldn't ask for a better host!

The apartment was clean, linens smelled fresh. WiFi connection was very solid and good.TV was easy to operate. Apartment was stocked with everything we need, host was VERY GRACIOUS in sharing basic necessities (laundry detergent, dish washing detergent, etc) - do check the pantry before stocking up! Mattress, pillows were comfortable, apartment layout was great, loved the roomy living room. There were enough plates, silverware, glasses, etc. Washing machine was easy to operate, we learned to hang our clothes to dry and was surprised, every time, how quickly they dry!

The apartment has a nice view, close enough to the city central but quiet enough for restful night's sleep. There are a couple of grocery stores we frequented, close enough to walk to/from. We also enjoy (and MISSED IT now!) the bakery "Bakkerij van der Heijden ", that is about 2-3 minutes walking from the apartment - we had fresh warm croissants, bread every morning and fresh made pastries/desserts with coffee in the afternoons!

On the day of our departure, Bryan promptly met us at an agreed upon time, and help us with our luggage. He also checked in with us to make sure we have everything we need. We so appreciate his efforts!

The staircase leading up to the apartment is steep, but even my 77-yr-old mother thought it was a good exercise, so there is a silver lining to the climb.

BONUS: during our stay, a Pigeon laid two eggs in the back porch! We got to watch the Pigeon sit and 'warm' the eggs.

I would recommend this property to anyone!

Nice apartment in a quiet neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

A really well stocked apartment with everything you could need. Fabulous view of the canal and the outer city. Nice and helpful owner. This is a quiet neighborhood where many families live so it is outside the center of town but near the tram lines. We bought an unlimited week long pass for the transit system and jumped on and off as we needed.

There are 3 flights of dutch stairs up to this apartment which we did not think about. These were great for exercise, but difficult with suitcases.

Excellent Apartment in Great safe location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 3 days. Very comfortable place with all the comfort of home. Kitchen was well equipped all amenities (HD TV, wifi) are there. Great views of the canal and the large park across the street. A 5 minute walk to buses, trams, restaurants and super markets and only a 10-15 minute ride to the heart of the city. Area was very safe and comfortable. Bryan is a pleasure to deal with and was available by email and cell phone and responded within the hour. I would definitely recommend this apartment for a great stay in Amsterdam

Great Apartment, Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a stay here for 8 days. Its a very nice and updated apartment in a quite and safe area. Within a quick walk to major tram and bus stops and food. Bryan is very nice and keeps his place very clean with a well stocked kitchen so you can cook some meals at home. Balcony was awesome for sitting and looking at the canals when it was nice out. Payment process was really easy took the info he sent me after booking to my bank, 10 mins later I was locked in for my stay. Received the deposit back right after our stay. Overall a great time in Amsterdam and a great place to start the adventure from.
