This is Amsterdam at it's best! Sunny, stylish and slap bang in the middle of everything. Walking distance from museums, art galleries and Rembrandt Plein. 600m from Central Station. Corner flat with canal views from every room and every window!Our beautiful apartment is situated in the popular Jordaan district. Nowadays the Jordaan is, compared to the rest of Amsterdam, an oasis of peace with a labyrinth of narrow streets and little canals. Cosy cafe's and trendy restaurants are just a stone throw away. Stroll along the tree lined canals and enjoy the open air courtyards, art studios, and authentic monumental buildings with stone tablets; old-fashioned ‘brown’ pubs, boutiques and galleries.

Great location, beautiful apartment and nice welcome
We stayed here for a few days this November. Correspondence with the owner was always prompt and friendly. We arrived early from our flights and they were in a position to facilitate early check in which was great. A key was available so we were able to let ourselves in before our contact arrived a few minutes later. Hamid was friendly and professional.
Location is a short walk from the central station in a lovely street with intersecting canals so during the day you can view the different cruises passing and people milling around the streets. The apartment was spacious and clean throughout. The pictures on the site are a true representation.
Overall I have no hesitations booking again and will hopefully do so.
Incredible, romantic, central!
This apartment is a dream. Best views in all of Amsterdam. We were there for the beginning of our honeymoon and was so sweet and romantic. You won’t find a better apartment in this city! Lovvvved it. Wish we could just live there.
Loved, loved, loved this home!
My partner and I stayed at Petra's lovely home for three days. Her place is magical, as you can see from the photos. The location is perfect: everywhere is walk-able, the restaurants in the area are fantastic, it is convenient for transportation, and the nightlife is nearby. Petra was a wonderful host, she kept clear communication with us from the beginning. In fact, she arranged for a driver to pick us up from the airport upon arrival. Hamid, the driver, was amazing! As he drove us into the city he gave us wonderful recommendations of attractions we must see. He also let us into the place and explained how things worked.
The only part that was a little uncomfortable was the bathroom. Not a problem at all, just be aware it is very small. The shower was a little hard to move around in but still very clean. Also, the stairs leading up to the apartment are steep, which is not uncommon for Amsterdam but be aware if you have issues with climbing.
All together, this home is wonderful, and a must! I would definitely recommend it to friends, and when we go back to Amsterdam- Petra will be the first person we contact.
Beautiful apartment in a great location with fantastic canal views
What a beautiful, bright, spacious and immaculately clean apartment! This apartment was also in a fantastic location- a 5-10 minute walk to Centraal Station with grocery stores and plenty of great restaurants, bars and attractions nearby. The views of the canals were amazing...one of our favourite memories of Amsterdam is having a drink in the apartment in the evening after a long day of seeing the sites and watching the many people and boats go by in the canals (with lots of near misses of crashes between the large tour boats and smaller boats driven by locals). The kitchen was well-equipped, the shower was great, the living room area was comfortable and spacious, and the bed was very comfortable. Hamid was excellent with communication and responded to our messages very quickly. We would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone planning to stay in Amsterdam! It was perfect for our needs and we would love to stay in this apartment again when we return to Amsterdam!
Outstanding apartment near Central Station
5-star apartment. Petra has a nicely decorated apartment and was exactly as advertised. The apartment is great for individuals or couples who are looking to get a feel of daily life in Amsterdam. Easily walk through the Jordaan area, Anne Frank Huis, local markets, quality restaurants nearby. Definitely would stay here again.
We highly recommend this apartment!
To sum it up, we LOVED this apartment! It was equipped with everything we needed and it was very clean and cozy. The location was convenient to grocery stores, restaurants, and attractions.....and when we weren't out exploring the city, it was great to relax and enjoy the views from the apartment. We had an issue during our first night, but it was addressed immediately the next morning by the manager, Hamid, and the owner Janetta. They were both very helpful with everything. We had a very nice time in Amsterdam and we do not hesitate to recommend this apartment!
