Bright and cheerful canal view apartment

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from Amsterdam having stayed at this apartment for a week with another couple. It was a very spacious, modern, and bright upper floor apartment with many windows throughout offering cross ventilation. The elevator was really cool and stopped right at your doorway. The apartment is located on the prettiest canal in Amsterdam, in a quiet neighborhood, yet within easy walking distance to many restaurants, shops, grocery stores and ATM. The train station was just a 15 minute walk. We were met by Wieteke upon arrival, who was very helpful and remained accessible to us by cellphone whenever we had any questions. We would stay there again.

a lovely apartment with views.

  • 4 of 5

A clean, well designed apartment in a great, safe and scenic location. A variety of restaurants and shops all within easy walking distance. Great position for public transport.

We loved the apartment lift. It was ideal for the older person. Certainly a reason why we chose this apartment.

Our friendly welcome from Wieteke was brilliant. Faultless communication to organise key exchange and very useful local recommendations on eating out and shopping. We did appreciate the effort, so thank you. Leaving the apartment again was made so easy too.

We all loved the view from the fourth floor and would sit just watching life on the canal below.

The apartment was clean and modern, with a marvellous bathroom and the separate toilet was a benefit. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked with herbs and cleaning products which was so useful.

We would have liked more crockery, especially mugs, as we kept running out and many were chipped or broken.

The beds were comfortable and linen clean with plenty of towels. We would have liked bedside tables with lamps in both bedrooms. The second bedroom had nowhere to hang clothes. Some hooks on the wall and behind the doors would have been perfect in the bedrooms and bathroom. Maybe even a local picture on a wall?

Some written instructions on where to put rubbish and recycling would have helped also.

In all we loved the apartment , but felt it needed some finishing touches to make it perfect.

We certainly would return. We had a marvellous short break. Thank you Mark and Wieteke.

As good as it gets

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for twelve days and it was a wonderful experience. The views across the canal are breathtaking and with all the houseboats and Dutch architecture, we had a true Amsterdam experience. The apartment has an elevator, which is very hard to find in Amsterdam and made such a difference after a long day of sightseeing or when we returned from grocery shopping. We also really enjoyed the neighborhood since two short blocks away is a main shopping street that has an ATM, two grocery stores and a number of wonderful shops and restaurants. However, the apartment itself is on a very quiet street which is a nice change from the busy tourist areas in Amsterdam. We found a wonderful restaurant called Taverna on the main shopping street and returned there several times for dinner. Another important feature is that it is very close to a major tram spot, Harlaamsplein, which also has a taxi stand so that you can get to anywhere in the city very easily.

We had a wonderful experience communicating with the owner when we wanted to extend our stay and his representative who checked us into and out of the apartment was very friendly and helpful. We would recommend this apartment to anyone and are so glad that we booked it for our Amsterdam trip.

Excellent location, very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was very spacious, clean and comfortable. Although the unit is on the top floor, there is a lift so it was easy to get our luggage up to the apartment. The location made it easy to either walk to restaurants and attractions or catch local transport. The apartment had all the amenities we expected.

It would be nice if Mark had a "welcome" book. We could not figure out the coffee maker as we had never used one like it. Also, we felt the the bath towels were in need of replacement. The ones there were rather small in size and somewhat threadbare.

Overall, this was an excellent property and we would certainly return.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and hope to host you again soon! Just to let you know that we do offer guests a demo of the coffee machine during check in now and the towels including the bath towels have since been replaced with larger ones. All the best, Mark
