Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to put into words how perfect this apartment is. My family rented several places in Amsterdam for the pride celebration this past August. The location was perfect. The views were perfect. The breeze coming through the apartment was perfect. The host, even better. Kees made us feel like family who came to stay at his apartment that weekend. What surprises me sometimes about renting a vacation home is that meeting the local people are what you take away as the best part. If you are lucky enough to rent this flat, do it. We will be back as long as this flat is available for rent!!! Thank you Kees, thank you Amsterdam!!

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Kees' place is a fantastic apartment, great views, nice artwork and comfortable furnishings. We had friends over to enjoy the view before and after dinners, great location for entertaining. Very comfortable bed, good coffee maker, large fridge, dishwasher. Everything perfect for an extended stay. Owner was available to deal with any issues we had and arranged a great private canal tour (2 hours for €45pp) with very nice food and beer and wine. Smaller boat so could take us to locations we wanted to see from the water (like Brouwerij 't IJ.) There's a great steak/fish restaurant on the ground floor (Venus and Adonis) and an excellent Thai place just two blocks away (Rakang.) Wish we could have stayed longer.

Excellent Place, Great People and a Very Good Time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for one week in the canal apartment and would highly recommend it to those looking for a comfortable setting in an ideal location of Amsterdam. Overlooking the charming canal from the top floor living room is great, but then scale up to the bedroom loft and you feel as if you've arrived onto the movie set of Fiddler on the Roof. The view is higher than the chimney's themselves with a perfect scenic view of Amsterdam!

Beyond the ambiance, we found the hospitality to be attentive and genuine. Kees went out of his way to make sure everything was just so and the communication, arrival/exit logistics were handled on par with many of the luxury resorts we have stayed at in our past. We left with new friends and fond stories we had not anticipated.

Beautiful Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time in Amsterdam and this property was just perfect for the short stay! Kees was so welcoming and met us with an apple pie. The apartment is very clean and is exactly how it looks in the pictures. The views from the living area and bedroom are beautiful! Beware of the extremely small elevator: only allowed 1 person & bag at check in. The apartment is about a 10 min walk to the Ann Frank House and about 20 min walk to the Van Gogh. Conveniently located to great food and shopping! I highly suggest taking the boat tour with Kees' friend Jan! You receive a private boat tour equipped with wine and cheese! Way better than being packed 100 to a boat. This is where you want to stay!!

Fantastic apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 nights at this lovely and spacious apartment in late June. We highly recommend it and will try to stay here again on our next visit to Amsterdam. The location is great - right on the Prinsengracht and centrally located. The apartment itself is modern and beautiful - it's on the 5th floor with an elevator and the elevator opens right into the apartment (it's a keyed elevator so no concerns about security). It has a modern and well equipped kitchen, a nice dining table and a small but nice seating area as a living room, right next to the very large windows that open onto the Prinsengracht and let in a lot of wonderful light. The views of the canal and street scene are lovely. The bedroom is up a flight of stairs (steep stairs but that's how Amsterdam is!). It is also spacious with a very comfortable bed and a large sliding glass door that offers great views of the Amsterdam rooftops. The bathroom is also modern and very spacious. We just loved it!

The apartment was very clean and Kees was very responsive to our emails.

Also very good is the Venus and Adonis restaurant on the street level of this building - great food and service, with really nice people. All in all we highly recommend this apartment.
