A Nice Place to Stay
Our host was friendly and helped us with information about places to eat and visit and transportation options. Unit was comfortable and very clean. Picturesque, quiet neighborhood with canal views. Only downside is that it is a 10 to 15 minute walk to transit, which can be hard after a long day. Luckily there is Uber!
Superb location and charming hosts
The apartment is beautifully situated at the end of a dyke and by a very attractive park. We used Uber to the free ferry to cross into the city and walk to local shops 10-15 minutes away. The hosts were kind enough to welcome us with a bottle of wine and some beer.
Whilst being both spacious and light with most pleasing views there is a need for some updating. The kitchen is in the hallway/landing area and with limited facilities. There was no sign of an iron or ironing board or safe. The first night we were very cold although when we flagged this up the owners quickly responded and corrected the problem immediately.
However, the main problem for our party of four people was the lack of a separate toilet as we had chosen this apartment specificllay as it advertised this and I quote ;-
Bathroom 1. Toilet. 1
toilet, combination tub/shower, shower. Toilet
On arrival we asked where the separate toilet was and were told that there wasn’t one only the one in the bathroom. I am afraid this was a significant issue for us.
Nice place to stay. Thumbs up!!
Really loved staying here!
We loved the flat which was perfect and had everything we needed. Rene was really helpful explaining all the transport and local dining places. Loved sitting in the window watching all the cyclists go by. Lovely peaceful home which we looked forward to getting back to in the evening. Miss it! Thank you Rene and Ellen!
Quiet and comfortable stay.
This was a quiet, convienent location close to the free ferry that takes you to central Amsterdam. Rene was a gracious host.
Homely and peaceful yet only 1 metro stop from Amsterdam Central
Beautiful location by the canal surrounded by other picturesque houses from the 18th and 19th century. It was perfect for our family being away from the bustle of the centre but still within easy reach via the new Metro.
Ellen was a very thoughtful hostess suggesting various amenities and restaurants in the area. The petting zoo around the corner from the flat was a particular hit with our son.
It's about a 10-15 min stroll to the metro station through a very nice park beside the canal. If you continue on foot along the canal you come to the free ferry that takes you directly to Amsterdam central.
Rene/Ellen thank you for our stay!
