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!

A homeay fromhome.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at this apartment has been a very pleasant one. Michel Dubois the owner has been very helpful and at many occasions and made us feel right at home.

One doesn't feell boxed in, the apartment is light and airy and equipped with everything one needs.

For an elderly couple the lift and now also a douche in the rebuild bathroom were a bonus. We stayed there for a full month and on the days that we needed a rust day there was so much to keep us entertained with an extensive music library as well books to read that made this place for us a home away from home.

The apartment is at a good location; trams are within walking distance, the Vondelpark an ideal place for a pleasant stroll is opposite the front door. There are also plenty of restaurants and shops close by.

The furniture is adequate and comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped and the bedroom as it should, this is an honest apartment that gives more than one can expect and is Highly recommended.

"Great place! If you are ...

  • 5 of 5

"Great place! If you are looking for a real taste of Amsterdam this apartment must be your choice! Magnificent views on the canal, easy access to the city centre, the worldwide-known Dutch Museums and the Central Station in a few minutes either by tram 1 or 2 or walking through the beautiful Vondelpark with its healthy green sorroundings. You can find very nice and cosy places for a coffee and for good meals as well as two supermarkets and some fine shops in the neighbourhood, which is regarded as one of the best in Amsterdam by locals. The apartment is like a crystal bubble, with incredibly relaxing views and all the comfort you may need: CD player, TV, DVD player, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and bedroom and everything carefully thought to the last detail to make your stay unforgettable. Mr Dubois is always available, very well-diposed and his fine touch makes his place unique. A real jewel on the 4th floor! I would definitely recommend it and I hope I will return soon."

"I was attracted to this ...

  • 5 of 5

"I was attracted to this property because of the light in the photos, and it really is as light as it appears in the photos. Two sides of the apartment look out on trees and the canal, and there is no building immediately to the West, increasing the sense of light and space. We enjoyed a time of fine weather and sat on the patio, watching parrots and storks fly between the canal and Volden Park, directly across the street and to the north. The kitchen is well equipped and staples like oil, vinegar, and butter were provided.

The building has an elevator-- a bonus I ''m sure in Amsterdam. however, the tub/shower is a long step over a 3 foot side, so bathing might be a problem for persons with balance or mobility issues.

I was a bit concerned about location, as it is not in the central canal part of the city. My husband and I rented bikes and enjoyed a ten minute ride into the old city each day through Vondel Park. We locked our rental bikes up outside the building without a problem. The tram is within steps of the building entrance. It was simple to locate from the airport. Now that I understand the location, I find it a bonus.

Mr. Dubois met us at the apartment and introduced us to all the systems and appliances. Wi-Fi is fast. Local restaurants and markets are within a quarter mile.

We were very comfortable here and recommend the apartment highly."
