Awesome apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Great location - close to restaurants, bars, shopping, markets. Clean and spacious. We had two couples and had nice privacy for both. I would totally recommend staying here. If we ever go back to Amsterdam which we sincerely hope to do, I would definitely choose this apartment again.

I thank the owners for excellent service on this rental apartment.

Minimalist CHIC in a lovely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We had a splendid time at this property; it's a beautiful, chic design, minimalist but very comfortable. The apartment is immaculately maintained, and features everything a vacationer could want: sumptuous linens on a soft bed, an uncluttered, airy elegance, numerous local guidebooks, a sectional sofa that's perfect for lolling upon as you plan your day, giant latte cups, and a washer/dryer to refresh your clothes after a long journey. Although we only required one bedroom, the apartment has two and we even invited some local Dutch friends to stay over one evening; they were terribly impressed with our accommodations! The owner was attentive to our every need, and we would readily stay here again.

Perfect design flat with hard to beat location.

  • 5 of 5

Great flat with all amenities close to the action in one of the nicest parts of town. I've stayed here a twice over the past couple of years and it never disappoints. Proper sized doubles. My only gripe was the bathroom shower/bath mixers and shower head could do with updating as these are a little tired also access to more towels would have been appreciated. Hard to beat in Amsterdam!

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

I had the good fortune to spend 2 months in this lovely apartment at the intersection of the Prinsengracht Canal and the Amstel River. The apartment is one flight up and the large windows afford a panoramic view of the canal below, the classic canal houses, and the picturesque bridge on Amstel.

The apartment is large with very high-end finishes, appliances and comfortable furnishings. The kitchen is very well appointed with all of the utensils and cooking accoutrements you will ever need if you're interested in eating in.

The location is spectacular. The Walkscore is 98-Walker's Paradise. Everything you need/want from groceries, cafes, ethnic restaurants, pharmacies, wine stores, boutique shops, souvenirs, etc. are within easy walking distance. If you're bit more ambitious, a 15 minute walk along the Amstel River will take you down to the main shopping street of Kalverstraat. It's a particularly lovely walk as you return home as the sun sets.

Of course if you're in Amsterdam you should consider renting a bike. There is a large bike rack on the street below a few steps from the front door. Virtually all of Amsterdam's must-see attractions are accessible within ten minutes or less by bike. If mass transit is you're thing, you can hop on the tram a block from the apartment.

The comfortable bedrooms are at the back of the apartment and you will not be bothered by any street noise.

The owner, Merian, is always available and will promptly and with good cheer address any problems or concerns you might have.
