Charming canal house garden cottage
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay right on an Amsterdam canal. Very charming garden cottage studio. This stay gave us a wonderful feel for living in Amsterdam like a local. Charlotte was very helpful and we enjoyed our chances to chat. Beautiful spot to come back to relax after exploring the city!
Great home, shame about the neighbor
Charlottes’ home was a beautiful garden oasis in a prime location of the city-I spent a month there while attending the university(as a 48yr old mature student). I’ll go on to rave about the space but like to provide not just the great info so the review is accurate. A heads up to anyone who may want to talk in the outdoor space, or your suite while the sometimes back neighbor is in residence. He(the neighbor) was so fussed-banging hard on my window with a broom one night and yelling the ‘walls were paper’ while one friend was by, and then yelling at our study group of 4 as we sat with computers open on the garden table at 5pm working on a project. He was aggressive saying he didn’t want to hear us, came back to say he ‘hates tourists’ and trying to insult by saying ‘we must be american’ (we weren’t). We put on soft Italian music and he came back for another round of harassment. He called to complain on us(I videotaped the volume for Charlotte’s reference) and unfortunately her way of dealing with this bully was to say I should have appeased him, even though she knows he’s unreasonable:( My study mates were totally intimidated and were whispering after the encounter). While there, I endured an extremely loud late night party from behind, and several loud outdoor gatherings(at reasonable hours)to the side yards-but you’re in close quarters and it was expected. It was unsettling to be a single woman near to such an aggressive neighbor.
That aside, the cottage, which you access through the owners front door, down her interior hallway, out her back door and across the garden to your suite-was charming and equipped with basic needs. The bed was comfy(after I took one of the 3 mattress’s off-was too soft), pillows were great. The huge windows that open to the outside provide amazing contact with the charming garden. My overall stay was excellent, the home could not be better situated to grocery, laundry, shops, eating-and the garden in a city was an absolute bonus.
If booking, beware of the snarly neighbor and otherwise enjoy!
Exactly as pictured and described...
The garden studio was great...Central location ,quiet, clean and cozy...Well equip mini-kitchen..tiny bathroom but functional and lots of hot water for showers..Complicated set of 4 keys to enter and exit..Beautiful, flower filled garden..
Quiet and Comfortable
This studio is in an excellent location with coffee shops, groceries and public transportation right nearby. Amsterdam is certainly a pedestrian friendly city, but for convenience trams and a metro station are right nearby for longer excursions. Short walks to both the Bloemenmarkt and Albert Cuypstraat markets as well. The location is quiet and the garden house is very comfortable. Charlotte is a wonderful host.
Amazing City Getaway
Wonderful quiet place to stay in a very busy city! Charlotte was very helpful both before and during the stay. The house is well appointed and very comfortable. Thanks for a wonderful week!
Charming garden house
We loved our stay in the garden house. It is charmingly rustic and we were very comfortable, despite some glitches resulting from a newly- installed heat and hot water system that I am sure have been fixed. The view into the lovely garden from the almost floor to ceiling windows makes you feel like you are in Vermeer’s studio! Charlotte was a very thoughtful and solicitous host
On walking distance to all major activities: most museums, many shops, groceries (organic aswell), many restaurants, café's and all kinds of public transportation.
