It had everything you needed and plenty of room for four people. The location, on the opposite side of the water to Amsterdam, was also great because you could get away from the hustle & bustle for a while and getting the ferry over was really simple too. It runs every 6 mins & is free.

The area the apartment is located is great too with supermarket and other amenities minutes away. Myself and my partner came to stay for the New Year celebrations and was definitely not disappointed! Peter was a fantastic host communication was perfect and answered all the questions we had. Also Paini was there to show us around the apartment and was very welcoming! Will definitely be returning!
