Overview

About the property

Located just across the Singelgracht, the canal surrounding the historical center, our apartment combines two things that are not easy to find together in Amsterdam: a very central location and an incredibly quiet and silent area. You can walk practically everywhere from here and once back home just relax without any noise from outside.

About Flavio Berardi

We are an Italian retired couple. Our only son and our grandchildren live in Amsterdam so we decided to relocate here in order to live closer to them. And when we're away (like when we're back to Italy for some time) we let other people enjoy our apartment.

Flavio Berardi purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Flavio Berardi chose Amsterdam

Central, quiet, sunny, close to everything and, last but not least, our son lives just upstairs!

What makes this apartment unique

A quiet and sunny balcony in one of Amsterdam's finest courts, a nice open plan kitchen and the possibility to walk practically everywhere in the historical center.

Great location- Nice quiet neighborhood within walking distance to parks, museums, grocery store.

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this place. They were very accommodating with answers to questions. We failed to ask where the washing machine was, but you can get access to it. The location was in a nice quiet neighborhood yet within walking distance to every where we wanted to go. Grocery store only 2 blocks away and bus stop or tram were also very close. Made a lot of our meals yet went out to many unique bars and cafes. Would not hesitate to use this place again.

Comfortable apartment in a nice location.

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was well situated in a nice and quiet neighborhood, but close to amenities. Stores, restaurants, and shops close by. The apartment was comfortable and well stocked. The balcony was a nice feature. The owner was away on the day we arrived and so we had to check in with the cleaning person. This person did not speak english, and we do not speak dutch, so the check in was brief. Not much information given. The website stated that this apartment has a washer and tumble dryer. But they were not available, or visible to us. There were two locked closets, maybe they were in one of those?? Fortunately we did not need the use of them. But overall the apartment was clean, comfortable and very pleasant. Would stay here again (but would want to know about washer and dryer).

Too short a stay, but a great spot

  • 5 of 5

We didn't have a chance to take full advantage of Flavio's great apartment....but we enjoyed the time we did spend there. It is well located and a comfortable space for a family of 4. Flavio was very helpful before we arrived and easy to contact. Perhaps we will have a chance to stay there again.

Great location, good host

  • 5 of 5

Great location In the hart of the city next to a kids playground, boat dock landing. The apartment felt spacious with a nice view of the back yard. The host was accommodating let us drop off our bags early. Very receptive to questions over text message. We enjoyed our stay.

Great Amsterdam apartment for a family of 4!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed at Flavio’s very nice apartment for a one week spring break. This is a great location- a super quiet, nice, residential neighborhood very near convenient tram and bus transportation. The apartment itself has a lot of space, and the beds were very comfortable and can be configured in a couple of ways. We really enjoyed the balcony at the rear of the apartment, which opens to the courtyards and gardens behind the buildings, with lots of birds (including parakeets) flying amongst the trees. The apartment is three flights of stairs up, though our understanding is that this is the norm for Amsterdam. There are several very good grocery stores very nearby, and there is also a very nice playground about a block away at Frederik Hendrik Plantsoen which is more adventurous than most US playgrounds. Flavio was very helpful and responsive before and throughout our stay and really made us feel at home. He recommended a car service to and from the airport which was very affordable, extremely timely, and really nice. There are a washer and dryer available for use, but they are in a closet off the hallway on the same floor as the apartment, not in the apartment. You’ll have to ask Flavio to use them, and they are slightly trickier to use than washer/dryers in the US due to typical Amsterdam building constraints. The apartment has changed in one way since the pictures on VRBO were taken- the wall to the left of the couch and TV has been closed in, which made that end of the apartment a little bit darker than shown.

Great neighborhood, very nice owners

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is on a quiet street, just off the Canal District. It has easy access by tram to the train station and to other sites.

Flavio was charming.

There was some construction happening on the floor below us that required a bit of navigation around materials when we first checked in - but that was resolved quickly. The construction workers were considerate and didn't bang too early in the morning. My husband is an architect so he enjoyed discussing the project with them and with Flavio.

The apartment is up several flights of stairs - but is quite nice once you arrive.
