Quiet apartment in the perfect location

5 of 5
Berry's apartment was the perfect size for two travelers (could easily accommodate 3) and in the perfect location. Quiet, safe, and within easy walking distance to all touristy locations. Berry was a perfect host. She was in constant communication with us and allowed us to check in early and drop our bags off while the apartment was still being cleaned. The apartment was well stocked with everything we needed and very clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this location to anyone looking to explore Amsterdam.

Perfect.

We spent a wonderful week in this house. The house is very well equipped, clean and cosy, with nice little garden. Good place for bicycle trips, in the middle of flower fields - close to the sea.
