About Theo

After my retirement as a TV-director and a documentary-maker for Dutch television I am happy to welcome travellers in our quiet guest house BB10 Amsterdam, to offer lodgings and to provide all kinds of information on where to dine, drink or club, on what to see and to visit, and, in general or very specific, on the rich history of Amsterdam or its surprising surroundings. As I have travelled the world professionally for many years, I know exactly what is needed and appreciated by weary travelers in a strange city. Comfort.

We'll provide.

Theo & my wife Beanke

Theo purchased this guest house in 1980

Why Theo chose Amsterdam

Just outside the tourist centre and its' bustle, in a green, quiet, safe residential area (no thru-traffic) next to the subwaystation, so only minutes away from the center * Shops, supermarket (08-22hrs), ATM around the corner. Restaurants, coffeehouses and terraces along the riverbank * And five very fine restaurants in the near vicinity: De Ysbreeker, Le Hollandais, Baut, Trouw and Rijsel * A brisk walk or a short ride brings you to the historical center in minutes, its' canals, its' museums, its' parks, its' markets, its China Town, its Quartier Latin * Parking a car in our street is easy and safe, but very expensive. As it is in all Amsterdam upto 6,00 euro per hour ! The best deal is to park your car in the P+R parking facility Bijlmer ArenA (at 8,00 euro/ 24 hours + free metro tickets) and board the metro/subway to WIBAUTSTRAAT, virtually at our doorstep.

What makes this guest house unique

* Ground floor * Private entrance * Own keys * Easy access * Also for elderly, handicapped, * LHBT welcome * Small pets welcome, after approval (and with a deposit) * Calm, secure, comfortable, warm, well-equipped

HomeAway uncooperative. Landlord just fine.

  • 5 of 5

I did not stay in the apartment because I could not travel for medical reasons. The landlord generously refunded to me what he got from HomeAway, but HomeAway would not refund me the substantial service fee, telling me that the only way they could do this, according to the landlord, involved their gaining access to the landlord's bank account, which he did not want to happen.

AMAZING PLACE

  • 5 of 5

Theo was very warm and welcoming by email. unfortunately if was on holidays when we came in but his neighbour Joke was very helpful checking in. We had the whole ground floor for us with all amenities you can require, very pleasant decoration, amazing quantity of books and a lovely garden. The road is quiet, 15' walk to major places but far enough from touristic areas. We look forward to coming back and meet Theo in person, we highly recommend this place to enjoy Amsterdam

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed here for 6 days and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is incredibly convenient and well appointed. Theo is very thoughtful host in the way he has made things available for his guests, from robes/slippers for the bathroom, to small plastic bags with ties if you want to take a snack with you on the road. The room and shared living area are very comfortable and attractive. Customer service was great. I forgot items in the room and Theo kindly mailed them back to me very speedily. I highly recommend the accommodation and would stay there again.

Great stay in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

This VRBO is a gem. We stayed for 3 nights, and loved that it was in a quiet residential street, away from the busy hotel/tourist area. Big comfortable bed, nice bathtub, and a lovely garden where we could sit with a cup of tea in the evening. The host was very helpful, booking us a taxi for the airport on our last day, as we had to leave before the metro was running. Metro is around the corner, as well as a supermarket to pick up some yogurt and fruit for the morning. Absolutely gorgeous place to stay, from the wooden floors to the greenery. Robes, shampoo etc. was provided, as well as a trove of travel books to peruse and read at night.

Wonderful Stay with a First Class Host

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 6 days at Theo's apartment. Not only do you feel like you are in a neighborhood, you are a block away from the Amstel and the Metro. As said before Theo is very helpful and his apartment felt like home. We had our morning coffee in his delightful garden and after the bustle of Amsterdam is was very nice to return to each night. You cannot go wrong with this place and I highly recommend it.

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Theo is a great host!   Very welcoming!   Clean, quiet place to stay.   There were books, menus, map, a book of how to get the most out of your stay.   He walked us through the common areas and our room explaining everything. He made us coffee when we came in.   Wine, soda were available.  Stroopwafels were provided to have with morning coffee.  Little notes and signs everywhere .   Beautiful garden out back to enjoy if you have leisure time.  Not far from the Metro. Definitely will be the first place I will look for accommodations the next time I am in Amsterdam.
