Comfortable and Inviting Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I was really impressed from the moment that Jorge opened the door of the apartment. It is light and airy and spacious. It is good having windows facing both the street at one end and the canal at the other. Having a view like the canal makes a big difference to the ambience of the apartment. Jorge and Bernadette obviously put in a great effort to provide all the necessary things that a guest might require. There are lots of towels, new soap, toothpaste, olive oil, vinegar, breakfast cereal, biscuits, jams, coffee, some beers in the fridge and water. There's cable TV with quite a few English-speaking channels and plenty of books. The apartment is within easy walking distance of most of Amsterdam's attractions - Dam Square, the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh museum, for example and is easy to get to from both the airport and Centraal Station. I really felt good in this place and Jorge and Bernadette were obliging and generous hosts. I thoroughly recommend this apartment.

Would love to return!

  • 5 of 5

The whole stay was enjoyable from start to finish. Our hosts were very friendly, helpful and always with a genuine smile and pleased to help. They gave us great advise on the easiest way to get to the apartment, sat down with us and a map of the area (Jorge provided the map!), a list of restaurants and stores/markets close by as well. The apartment was in a terrific location close to many restaurants, shopping etc. The apartment is super clean and has great views of the canal to sit with your coffee or wine and watch the boats go by. We walked everywhere we went and enjoyed this lovely city. The apartment was larger than we thought it would be and had everything we needed for the kitchen, bathroom, bedding etc. The tv also had English channels if you wanted to catch up on the news. The bed was quite comfortable and had blackout curtains that makes for a great sleep. The city itself was more than I expected. The people are so friendly and really seem to enjoy life and people (and dogs if you are a dog lover!). Just note that there are a lot of bikes and a specific area for bikes and scooters ONLY, do not walk in them thinking it’s a large pedestrian path! Lol. A few good places to people watch is the Waterkant which is located on the other side of the Texaco (where you get off the 397 bus from the airport). It’s right on the canal and has many places to sit outside. We also spend quite a bit of time at the Cafe on the corner located just across the street from the Heineken Experience. Just sitting at the small tables outside for hours watching the traffic and people go by. Try the chicken panini! Boris the chef is super friendly along with Wesley,Martin and the female bartender (sorry I can’t recall her name). This place and people made our experience so memorable. Thank you. Can’t wait to go back!

Great location with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we meet Bernadette and Jorge at the apartment we felt like we were staying in a guest house of good, kind friends. They stocked the apartment with fruit, milk, cereal, coffee and more than enough toiletries & detergent for our stay. Jorge even kindly came down late one evening to help me get logged into the computer so I could print out the train tickets I had left at home (turns out the pound sign when using UK language is the currency pound sign!). There was an unusual warm spell the week of our stay and we were very glad of the 2 fans they had set out for us. The bathroom is nice and large and we appreciated the combo washer/dryer. The location is ideal because of the many trams that intersect at the corner so we never had to wait long to catch the next one (I recommend getting a multi day tram pass). The apartment is in the city so can be a bit noisy but once the windows were closed, we slept well on the comfortable bed. At checkout, they didn’t have a long list of duties - just put the keys in a dish and go. We walked the 10 minutes to the airport bus stop they recommended and were very glad they suggested we arrive at Schiphol at least 3 hours before the flight! Thank you again Bernadette and Jorge! I would highly recommend this apartment.

If you were coming to Amsterdam, this is the place to stay! Jorge and Bernadette are fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious, full of wonderful amenities, close to public transportation, and close to Food markets. The owners have gone “all out” to make sure that the apartment is a true home experience. Two microwaves, a washer/dryer and a beautiful view.

There are many amazing books in the apartment to read on those rainy days when you don’t feel like going anywhere. I counted over 1000 books on topics ranging from philosophy to tour guides.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful this apartment was And how absolutely phenomenal Jorge and Bernadette were. I have never experienced this with VRBO, although I have read other comments about how wonderful the hosts were. Now I know what people mean. Stay here if you can!

An ideal location and property

This location is every bit as good as advertised. It is a wonderful location with a perfect environment for relaxing and seeing the surrounding city. The view of the canal is truly relaxing. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable.

fantastic property, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was more than comfortable as a solo traveler. Bernadette and Jorge were super helpful leading up to the trip and super welcoming once I arrived. The views were great, and the close location to multiple tram lines could not be beat.
