Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we reserved their apartment, Jorge and Bernadette were helpful and responsive. We were arriving into Amsterdam early in the day, and they were extremely accommodating in allowing us to check in early. In the days leading up to our arrival, they were proactive in ensuring we knew exactly what to expect once we arrived in Amsterdam.

Since Jorge and Bernadette would be out of town when we checked in, they let us know that Sylvia would be waiting for us. She was extremely kind and thorough in walking us through the apartment and its amenities; she had purchased goodies and grocery staples for us; and she shared with us some of her personal recommendations for restaurants and markets in the area. She made certain we knew how to get a hold of her during the week if we needed anything (which we never did).

The apartment itself is a dream - fantastic location with incredible views. We spent most evenings drinking wine, looking out onto the canal. The Jordaan, the canal boat stop, Dam Square, and even Central Station were easily accessible. The apartment was well stocked with linens, soaps, electronics, etc. The bed was extremely comfortable and the apartment was charming and cozy.

I cannot speak highly enough about our entire experience here. I'm convinced this apartment is one of the reasons I fell in love with Amsterdam during our stay, and we will certainly be sure to stay here when (not if!) we return.

Great welcome to Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately Schiphol Airport was shut down for much of the day due to a computer problem, meaning that our 2pm arrival became 7pm. We followed Bernadette's directions for a bus from the airport and took the short walk to the apartment as directed. Despite our entirely unreasonable arrival time we received a warm welcome from Sylvia and found the apartment to be warm, cosy and with some treats and basics to get us started. We were very grateful to Sylvia for weathering our inconvenience with such good grace.

Although it was early February we found our eyes constantly drawn to the canal view and so I would think there would be plenty to see in the high season. We loved the position of the apartment and in our two days we walked the length and breadth of the city and had time for a canal cruise and a trip to the Van Gogh museum.

We hope to visit again one day and would certainly choose to stay in the Canal View Apartment again.

Owner's Response: Dear Mary, Thank you for you kind words. Starting the trip with such a delay must have been frustrating and we are glad that your stay turned out to be positive! We hope to be able to welcome you again, perhaps with warmer weather...

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was very comfortable and view from leaving room is beautiful, very Amsterdam. It is very good place to spend few or more days in Amsterdam. Everything is close : shops, museums, restorations, pubs, clubs. The hosts are very nice, I would recommend this place to my friends.

great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights and the apartment was excellent. good location, close to tram stop that could take us to the main museums and to the central train station. Everthing is just about within walking distance and we walked everywhere. Jorge told us about a bus that took us to the airport for 5 euros and was within walking distance, evev pulling 2 suitcases. It was about 50 minutes to the airport but we didn't have to lug our bags to the train station then catch the train. very convenient. the apartment was very home feeling and we were very comfortable so much better than staying in a hotel room.. we spent our late afternoons and evenings sitting by the window watching people and boats going by. it was nice especially after a long day of sightseeing. whereever we go next, we just hope we can find a place like this. thanx again,

Great well equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for my husband and I during our 4 day stay. Sylvia met us at check in to introduce us to all we needed to know about the apartment. She was great, friendly, helpful, informative. The apartment was ideally located for strolling around the Jordaan. It was very well equipped with essentials and great extras such as tea, coffee, sugar, fruit, granola, water and two beers for us on arrival. Nice touches and would be delighted to stay here again.

Our stay September 2015

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Amsterdam we found the booking process very easy and lots of information regarding how to get to apartment and what to see plus tips of things to do in Amsterdam. We arrived at the apartment we where greeted and show around and given milk ceral coffee and maps of Amsterdam. The apartment was 1 min walk from two tram lines not that you need it as it was a 15 min walk to dam square and around 10 mins to Ann franks house. Felt safe and secure loved looking out over canel watching the world go by on the rocking chair. Pity the photos does not do it justice. The only gripe I would have is the stairs (steep) but this is normal in Amsterdam. If we go back to Amsterdam this will be the first and probably the only place we would stay. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.
