This charming apartment is located in the heart of the Jordaan in the romantic picturesque Bloemstraat the 3rd floor and has been completely renovated. Decor is modern, stylish and very comfortable. Windows are located at the front and back side and the apartment is very bright. From the front side you have a view on the 'Westerkerk' the pearl of the Jordaan. In the apartment no TV set is available.
The kitchen is fully equipped.
The apartment is surrounded by trendy shops, cozy cafes and restaurants all around the Amsterdam canals.
Westerkerk and Anne Frank Museum are 200 meters away. The famous Noordemarkt, De Dam, Prinsengracht, Keizersgracht and Heerengracht are also accessible in 5 minutes.
After several trip with home away we decided to drop our appartment also on home away
Mary + Dirk purchased this apartment in 2014
More central - impossible; in a few minutes you reach all highlights of Amsterdam. Living in between the picturesque channels of Jordaan
We made our way from airport to the flat and were greeted by Luke, a friend of Dirk's, who was waiting for us when we arrived making the check-in process quick and easy. He gave us the keys and showed us around the apartment. The flat is on the third floor and requires climbing a narrow steep staircase.
The flat is a true 1bedroom. The kitchen/living/dining room features an oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, and full-sized coffee maker. Everything functioned flawlessly. A table for four and sofa and chair complete the furnishings as well as a television with cable. Again all functioned flawlessly.
The bedroom featured a king-sized bed which was actually two twin beds pushed together and the bedding consisted of two duvets along with an assortment of pillows. That being said, we did not notice that we were not sleeping on a true king-sized bed and the duvets covered us well.
The shower was incredible: hot and powerful and modern. The shower head is a wand style. The toilet is separate from the bathroom.
The location in the Jordaan is amazing. We walked to most sights (its around the corner from the Anne Frank Museum) and felt like we were in the heart of the city yet we were not bothered by noise or disturbances. There were great shops and restaurants in the neighborhood.
I would definitely stay here again as well as recommend it to others.
Dirk greeted us at the airport and was cheery and polite despite us arriving later than planned due to a flight delay in London.
The apartment was exactly as it is in the pics - bright and airy with everything you could need for a short break away
The beds were very comfortable, the shower was brilliant and the kitchen area was equipped with anything we may have needed. The apartment is also in a fantastic central location - across the road from the Anne Frank House (absolutely recommend!) and a short walk away from Dam Square, Centraal Station and other areas of interest - also very close to lots of different tram/bus stops
We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely visit again/book again!
We were greeted by Dirk who proved to be very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The apartment is excellently located almost round the corner from the Anne Frank Huis and Westerkerk Church. The church chimes regularly and is lovely to hear. The accommodation is well equipped and very comfortable. Being on the 4th floor gives you more light and some city views, but also more stairs! They are worth the climb though. We hope to return!
This was a great apartment in a fantastic location. The apartment was bright, clean, and very comfortable for me, husband, and 7 year old daughter. The church bells are charming (but ring all night so wear ear plugs and it is fine). The apartment was like it appeared in the photos and the owners were very responsive by text and email. The apartment was walking distance to great sights including the Anne Frank museum. We would rent this apartment again.
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)
I stayed at Dirk and Mary's apartment for a week in December 2015. I recommend it heartily!
The location is perfect. I don't believe you could find a better location (and at such a good price!)
The apartment is cosy, comfortable, well-equipped, well-heated, great shower, comfy beds, super kitchen.
Dirk and Mary are the most wonderful hosts - they are kind and friendly, brilliant at contact when needed.
Thank you very much!
