Fab apartment (for 6 people)
This is a beautiful apartment. Although details for 7 I would say cut your losses and have a maximum of 6 to be comfortable. There are 3 rooms- 1) double bed with toilet and sink ensuite, 2) double bed with shower and sink room 3) 1 double bed. The bed for the 7th person was a sofa bed in the living area which we did not find comfy, or suitable as no heavy curtains so daylight shone in when sleeping. The kitchen is very adequate and but does not have a main electric oven. It has a microwave which can switch to conventional oven. Apartment was very clean. Betty was very welcoming and friendly and offered to be on hand should we need her. We didn't contact betty about the 7th bed area as I don't feel there is anything she could have done but I have emailed the owner. Main bathroom was lovely. Great location in a beautiful city. Would recommend for 6 people.
Not recommended/Horrible experience
The apartment was in disrepair when we arrived. It had been heavily smoked in by previous guests. The rental agreement was for a non-smoking apartment. In addition, a bathroom sink was clogged and two door handles had been ripped off.
We reported the smoke and damage to the owner upon arrival. He was slow to respond and when he did respond he said he would send a cleaning lady but did not say when she would arrive. She had not arrived by the time we had to find somewhere else to stay that night due to health concerns for those with severe allergies in our party. The smoke was so heavy it would not have been alleviated by one deep clean. That was the last we heard from him.
At this point, he has not responded since the initial request for support and will not respond to my request for a refund due to the breech of rental agreement.
We also reported this to VRBO. We were told they would open a case and given the cut and dry nature of the issue (non-smoking unit that had been smoked in) we would receive a refund and be able to submit a reimbursement request for the hotel. Since then I have been told to resolve with the owner. I don't know how that is going to work if he isn't compelled to respond.
Let me start by saying this was indeed a very unfortunate situation. The guests that stayed during New Years did smoke inside the apartment against our very strict house rules. The guests that came in directly after gave me a call but unfortunately left within minutes so I never got the chance to do anything to resolve this very unfortunate situation. My sincere apologies to these guest but I wish that had given me the opportunity because as you can see in my other reviews I always try to be an excellent host! Directly after this incident we decided to do big maintenance on the property. Right now our future guest will find themselves a freshly painted apartment equipped with brand new decoration and tasteful furniture!
Best stay in Amsterdam ever
We had An amazing 4 nights stay and already miss this place so much! This house is perfectly located and the distance to the heart of the city is walkable. The apartment was cleaned and fully furnished with all the things you may need. We really loved its style and modernity, also, the correspondence and the booking process was very easy and reliable. We highly recommend this apartment if you are a group of friends looking for the best option, we were seven girls and did not have any issue at all. Should we go back to Amsterdam, we will definitely contact this owner again!
Beautiful, quiet, relaxing apartment
I rented the apartment for colleagues to stay in during a business trip. They very much enjoyed the apartment and being able to relax after a busy day at a long trade show. The apartment is on a quiet block and has several windows with wonderful natural light. The private patio was beautiful, too. The layout of the apartment was a bit awkward as the master bedroom has a master bathroom that's only accessible through the master bedroom. The other two bedrooms are stacked in the back of the apartment with one having a shower and a sink and the other having a toilet and a sink. So sharing the bathrooms could be awkward, but it was doable for my colleagues. The location of the apartment was great - on a canal and an easy walk to the #4 tram. Richard was wonderful to work with and his colleague Betty was very helpful during check-in.
Excellent Apartment with only one drawback
Richard and his manager, Betty, are efficient and responsive. The apartment is in a good location for those who want to be away from the masses of tourists. The apartment is open, airy, very clean, well provided for, updated, but has one drawback that renters need to be aware of.
There are three bedrooms, one is a "master" that has a complete bathroom with toilet, shower, tub and two sinks. A second bedroom with two double mattresses on the floor has a bathroom with a sink and toilet. The third bedroom with a queen bed, has a bathroom with shower and sink but no toilet. For the couple who stays in that bedroom it is necessary to go down stairs, through the master bedroom to use their toilet, or up stairs, through the living room, down stairs through the kitchen, and down stairs again to the bathroom outside the master bedroom to use the toilet.
It is not an ideal situation for older people. It worked out fine for our family which consisted of 2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 children. Again, this is a lovely apartment and I would recommend it to anyone who understands the one drawback.
The property was well located, as advertised. However, the photos of the property were not current. The kitchen is now very small and on the landing as you enter the apartment not the larger kitchen shown in photos. The desk shown in the entry is now where the refrigerator and microwave sit. It appears that the upstairs bedroom now occupies the previous space of the kitchen. Very misleading.
Also, the bathroom layout was not made clear. It is not as I was lead to believe. Could possibly be a communication issue. The downstairs back bedroom, with a king bed, has an attached room with a sink and a shower ( no toilet). The master bedroom which is also downstairs has a door leading to the main bathroom with the tub, shower and toilet. For adults traveling together this layout isn't convenient. If the people in the back downstairs king bedroom need to use the bathroom during the night they either need to walk through the master bedroom or go up the back stairs, through the dinning room/ living room, go down the half flight of stairs that leads to the kitchen by the front door and then go down another half flight of stairs to enter the main bathroom from the front. This is not optimum. There is a toilet and sink in the upstairs bedroom but once again the bedroom privacy is an issue.
I never saw Richard but he explained that he just became the Father of triplets so being competent adults we were able to let ourselves in with his email instructions. There was no property instruction book of how to work appliances including the AppleTV ( we realized that there was no remote control available as mention in a previous review so the appletv couldn't be used). Also there was no instructions for the washer/dryer. I emailed Richard and never got a response. We ended up doing the best we could.
With some TLC and refresh this would be a very nice place to stay because of the location but for our group of travelers the layout and the misleading kitchen photos and the toilet issue made it just an "okay" experience.
