Felt like locals
Absolutely stunning house, it's distressed feel only added to the character. Perfect for entertaining and big meals, with cosy out door areas and three massive ensuite rooms.
And to top it all off you're welcomed home by their lovely cat Stella who loves to curl up with you next to one of the many sunny windows.
Incredible location, within walking distance of everything and a short stroll to restaurants, cafes and supermarkets.
Two of the toilets didn't have doors (purposely) but the showers were lovely!
Would highly recommend, especially over a hotel/hostel - you really felt like you belonged and the group was able gather for meals and planning (and the odd glass of wine).
Thank you, Mike!
Thank you for your kind words.
About the toilets. A good remark. I did not think of that. As a group of eight friends you need some privacy there. We will take care of that for the next time we rent our house.
the house is very central in Amsterdam, and it was easy to walk almost everywhere.
We loved the house- the decoration was fun and whimsical, and the house is huge! There was easily enough room for all 6 of us, and we enjoyed the roomy bedrooms and the in suite bathrooms.
The house is unique and fun, and we would love to come back some time again.
Communication with our host was very easy, and we have only had a positive experience.
Tutto perfetto. Dall'ospitalità di Mike, sempre presente anche se in vacanza, alla location, una tipica casa olandese vissuta ed originale, con ampi spazi anche per dieci persone. In pieno centro, non abbiamo mai sentito la necessità di usare mezzi pubblici: la destinazione più lontana è stato il Meseo Van Gogh, raggiunto comunque in non più di mezz'ora di tranquilla passeggiata. Comodissimo anche da raggiungere dall'aereoporto, con il treno: la stazione dista non più di dieci minuti a piedi. Che dire... non saremmo potuti capitare meglio. Grazie Mike e famiglia!
Un logement idéal en tous points pour découvrir Amsterdam: l'emplacement est central, à moins de 10 minutes à pied de la gare, nous n'avons utilisé qu'une fois le tram, pour aller au rikjmuseum. Pour le reste, tout se fait à pied. La location était très spacieuse, tout à fait conforme aux photos et impeccable, et la communication avec Mike très facile, nous avons pu le joindre rapidement chaque fois que nous avons eu besoin de le faire (pour trouver un médecin pour notre fille malade par exemple). Accueil vraiment sympathique avec pain frais pour le petit déjeuner ( nous sommes arrivés tard le soir)! Je recommanderais volontiers cette grande location.
Thank you for your kind words.
Mike and family
Our house is on the broadest and one of the oldest canals of Amsterdam. It is an old captains house. It is a official monument.
Our house is located in a very quiet living area. But on the same time is only 5 minutes walk from the 'Nieuwmarkt', one of the old centre of Amsterdam. It is also situated only 5 minutes walk from the central trainstation.
