About Frank

Hi I am a 45 years old guy from Amsterdam and I work as a human recourses consultant in the logistics industry. My partner and I have been living in the center of Amsterdam for many years, we both love Amsterdam, its compactness, its friendly atmosphere, its noisyness, its tranquility. Originally I am from the eastern part of the Netherlands (If you want to know the difference between Holland and The Netherlands I am happy to tell you when you here) and moved to Amsterdam when I was 21. My first room (student housing) was just around the corner and from that moment on I new I wanted to own an apartment in this part of the city.

Frank purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Frank chose Amsterdam

Although no longer living there we don't want to sell it because its such a nice apartment in such an ideal location.

Whenever we have family or friends over we let them stay there and everyone who has always loves the great location!

What makes this apartment unique

From the south facing balcony at the back side of the apartment you have a nice view of the gardens of the 17th century canal houses on the Prinsengracht. It is amazing how peaceful and tranquil it can be in the middle of a buzzling city like Amsterdam.

Spacious, GREAT Location!

  • 5 of 5

We started our month-long trip with a 6-night stay in this apartment in Amsterdam. It was delightful. The location made it easy to access the city's excellent public transit. Turn right as you exit the front door and you are steps away from a main street. Turn left and you are steps away from the lovely Jordaan area. The apartment itself is larger than the pictures portray. Windows in the front offer a view of buildings across the street featuring Amsterdam's famous roof lines, and in the back the balcony overlooks a treed courtyard area. The street is lively at times, but the windows block out any noise. We loved feeling part of the city. It was very easy and pleasant to work with Frank, the owner. We do not hesitate to recommend this apartment.

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 4 nights in this lovely, well-located apartment. It is within walking distance of many attractions, as well as trams and Central Station. Yet the street is safe and quiet. Frank provided a handbook with info on the apartment as well as location of nearest grocery stores and more. Apartment had everything we needed. It was very clean and comfortable. Frank is great to work with, and we would definitely stay there again.

Exceptional Apartment, Well Located and Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in this lovely apartment and look forward to returning! We were impressed with how equipped it is - it had everything we needed, from laundry supplies to cooking utensils to maps and books. The location is wonderful - close to a tram line, easy walks to shops and restaurants (the Portugese restaurant across the street is great), safe and secure building, and great handbook with tips on everything. We highly recommend it!

clean, great location, comfortable

This is a perfect place to set up house for a few days. It's around the corner from just about anything you might need, but also quiet.
