This light, bright and airy apartment in the 17 century canal area of Amsterdam sleeps 2 (living room, study, bedroom; a western king size double), has an open plan kitchen and is located in the very heart of Amsterdam between the Prinsen and the Keizers gracht.

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.

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in a central location but also quiet, we walked everywhere. It is very comfortable, with a great bed, nice linen, good shower, very functional kitchen and excellent wifi. Being December the heating made us very cosy. The host was easy to communicate with and understanding to fit in with our arrival and departure times. We were welcomed by Fatima who explained everything about the apartment. I would highly recommend and we will stay here again on our next visit to Amsterdam. Thank you Frank for a perfect stay!

Ideally Situated Apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Kerkstraat apartment for 4 nights and were delighted with it's location and facilities. The booking process and gaining access was helpful and efficient. The apartment itself was lovely and really well equipped.

We have visited Amsterdam many times , staying in other apartments or hotels but found this stay to be the best because of the situation of the apartment and the accommodation.

Frank is a really helpful and organized host and Fatima who met us was lovely .

During our stay we walked to Dam square , went on a boat trip from the American Hotel , toured the Van Loon house .

Would not hesitate to recommend !

Great place to start and finish

  • 5 of 5

We just got back to the states after 2 weeks in Europe. Our last four days we spent in this apartment. It was easy to book, very clean and simple to make arrangements to get in. And the location is perfect. We walked everywhere in the city from this starting point...15 minute walk to Museum District...15 minute walk to Anne Frank house...etc. The place is well furnished, has great wifi, very clean, great bed, lots of room for two and Frank provided us with a nice bottle of wine on arrival. We would recommend this place to everyone.

Great location & very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is as shown--it is spacious, well equipped and clean. It is centrally located and within easy walking distance of the many sights that Amsterdam offers. While tram passes are available, the only time I used the tram was to get to and from Central Station. The rest of the time I walked everywhere, and as Amsterdam is a city best experienced by foot, it made for a memorable visit.

Friends who have lived in Amsterdam for over 15 years were impressed by the apartment's location, size and set up. You will be too.

Excellent base to explore Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in Frank's place for 3 nights in early September. It is the perfect spot to explore the city. You can walk to all of the main attractions yet it is quite enough at night to have a peaceful sleep. It is also conveniently located by a tram stop, which takes you directly to the central station.

Frank is extremely easy to connect with, with most emails returned within the hour and is a very gracious host. Unfortunately we weren't able to meet in person however we did get a great run though of the apartment through Fatima.

I would definitely stay in Frank's apartment again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to base themselves in Amsterdam.

Recommended Amterdam Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for us (couple). Walking distance to the major museums, good restaurants, and easy access to the tram line. Very centrally located on a quiet street. It was larger than I expected. We utilized the small kitchen, clothes washer/dryer, and had plenty of space to unwind. We got our deposit back quickly. While we left the place clean, we appreciated not having a long list of checkout steps that other rentals have left. We would stay there again.
