This is certainly a great place to stay when you visit our lovely city. The house is in a quiet neighborhood on the north side of Amsterdam, just 20 minutes away from the city center and close by the more rural areas surrounding Amsterdam making it easy for you to choose different kinds of day programs. There are buses every 10 minutes and a night bus coming to the house all night.
Will you choose to discover all of what the city has to offer or will you prefer to explore the rich waters of Waterland during an adventurous canoe tour? Whatever you choose to do, I will make sure to help you get around so you don’t miss anything and will look back to an unforgettable stay in Amsterdam. This is more than a just a B&B. You are actually staying at a local’s house and you will notice it feels like staying with a friend.
There are two rooms in the house for you.
The Room Upstairs:
In the room there’s a comfortable double bed with a new mattress and a surprise hidden bed in the closet for 1 small person. There’s a washing table in the room. The room has a large private terrace where you can sit and have drinks.
The Room Downstairs:
This room is on the first floor (one stairs up) of the house and has a double bed and a single bed. The room is just in front of the shared bathroom.
In both rooms you can make tea or coffee and there is a possibility for a mini bar with drinks and snacks (upon request).
You can prepare breakfast yourself but I will make sure you get what you like for breakfast so you can start your day in Amsterdam feeling comfortable and happy.
Guests are welcome to sit in the kitchen/living room during breakfast and to use the garden anytime they like. After 12 pm the kitchen and livingroom are not available for guests. Smoking is allowed in the garden or on the balcony of the Room Upstairs.

Interaction with guests
At check-in I will give you as much information as I can to help you around and let you prepare for a good time in Amsterdam. Mostly I am around to help you with anything during your stay. At breakfast is a good time to drop your questions and tell about your experiences. If you prefer to have breakfast quietly in your room that is also possible :-)
Other things to note
What people like about my house is the fact that it feels like home. There is an easy going atmosphere and you feel welcome as soon as you arrive.
There are 2 cats and a small dog in the house! People that love pets will be delighted but if you are not a pet friend you might want to choose another listing :-) My pets are very sweet and won't bother you at all.
The fact that the house is not on walking distance to the city center is for some people a point to dislike the location although it's really easy and a short 20 minute bus ride to get into the heart of the city.
If you are intending to spend a lot of time at home, please note that I work at home and am here most of the day.
I hope to welcome you very soon :-)
