                                                              Loved the apartment, very clean and comfortable. Mary very welcoming and we were able to access the apartment early, thanks. Some basics left for us to use, ie salt, pepper, coffee, oil, vinegar, thanks Mary and Dirk. Kitchen equipment spotless and good. We were able to knock up a meal with no hassle, and dishwasher to clean it all up with afterwards! Supermarket nearby with lots of choice of good food, wine, beer. Great bakery around the corner. Stairs steep if you have an issue with steps, but good for burning off the calories from all the delicious cakes! Great location, Jordaan is a lovely residential area with lots of cafes, restaurants etc, but also reasonable walking distance to main city centre. Tram stops nearby. Lots of restaurants, bars etc in the main city centre, but they are all full of tourists, stay in the local area, the restaurants are better, the locals live and eat there as well as tourists. If you stay here, explore all the back streets in the area behind bloemgracht canal and all the side streets off Prinsengracht canal (called 9 streets)

                                                              Bright and clean apartment. Ideal for a short stay.

                                                              This was an ideal apartment to stay in. It was clean and bright and had everything we needed for our short stay. The apartment was well located for attractions and there were many good places to eat in, nearby

                                                              Loved this Apartment!

                                                              The apartment was excellent, we had it for 3 nights and there were 7 of us. The tram was a 5 minute walk away and the supermarket was 2 minutes away which was really convenient. The master bedroom was perfect, really spacious, has a big TV and access to the garden. The walk in shower was amazing! Everything was very clean and well maintained. I would definitely come back to stay and highly recommend it to others. The property manager Jurjen made sure our stay went well, excellent customer services!!!
