Beautiful stay in every way

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Michel's was truly a five star experience. He was so gracious, thorough and helpful and always timely in responding to emails. The apartment was so lovely, I hardly wanted to leave! We enjoyed the sunsets from the dining room table and the kitchen was as well equipped as my home, which I Ioved, as we cooked "in" quite a bit. And the knives were sharp! The original art on the walls added to the beauty of the apartment. We also loved being across from the park and walked it every day. It was an easy walk to the Rijks Museum and the van Gogh Museum. The tram is not far and once we figured that out, was easy. We used the little "bistro" on the canal for a meal and the grocery store is not far. We also had a scary mishap. We left a backpack in the taxi, which had essential items in it. Michel stayed with us at the apartment, called many taxi companies and tracked it down, much to our relief! It was a memorable stay in beautiful Amsterdam.

Great location, canal view, gracious host

  • 5 of 5

The 4th floor apartment is a spacious one-bedroom with full amenities (including an elevator) just across the street from the eastern end of the

Vondelpark. My desire was ease of access to the Museums on the Museumplein without residing in an area dominated

by tourists, which is provided by this apartment. Also, access to Schiphol is convenient by bus or train (from the Lelylann station).

The big windows on the north and west sides of the apartment are also a plus. I will definitely be staying here again when I return to

Wonderful place to stay in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in a number of apartments in Europe and I would say this is among the best. The apartment was comfortable in every way. It was toasty warm and the kitchen was very well equipped. Being a corner unit, the apartment was very bright and we loved the view of the canal. The location was also great - easy access to downtown through Vondel Park and the #1 and 2 tram lines which were close by. Michel was a wonderful host and provided a lot of local knowledge. He met us at the apartment at 11 pm after our late flight and he provided enough food for breakfast which came in handy until we got to the grocery store - there were several of those within easy walking distance. If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Amsterdam, this apartment is where we'll be staying!
