About Joan Fabricant
My husband and I used to exchange our New York City apartment with a good friend who lives in Amsterdam. After five or six years of loving the city, we decided to buy an apartment here. We have been coming to Amsterdam two or three times a year, each time for a month or two, for about 12 years. We decided to buy another apartment here as an investment. This apartment is also useful for friends, and family who come and visit us from New York as well as using it as a rental.
Joan Fabricant purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Joan Fabricant chose Amsterdam-West
We searched for many months for a second apartment. In addition to the price, our main criteria were whether we would like to live in it and its location, thinking of friends and renters. We found this one. We both agreed on it right away. It had great potential, and we knew that with a serious renovation and tasteful furniture, it would be a very nice place.
What makes this Apartment unique
This is a very comfortable apartment in a great location. Everything is new, including linens, pots, pans, dishes, etc. There is lots of kitchenware. We also have a portable travel crib We have some very good friends who take care of the apt. They are wonderfully helpful to any renter, and also lovely people. They will meet you with the keys, and explain anything you need to know about the apt or the city. They live a few blocks away should there be any problems. They renovated the apartment when we bought it, and so they know it well.

Lovely Home near everything
Small but beautifully put together and thus very comfortable. The owner is very responsive and her friend Sylvia greeted us with all the information we needed, The apartment is completely equipped for a short or long stay. Great place to stay with all the restaurants and stores needed next door and trams to anywhere in the city right outside the door
This condo was amazing. It was the perfect place to stay. It was very clean and well maintained. It had everything we needed. So close to transit, it was very easy to get around. I would stay here again anytime. I would definitely recommend Joan's condo to everyone.
Thank you Sylvia for greeting us and showing us the condo. Thank you Joan for making your condo available to us.

Wonderful apartment in a great location
We have just spent a wonderful week in this spacious and contemporary apartment. It is ideally located in a 'trendy' area with direct tram connections to Amsterdam and all its attractions literally outside the apartment. Lots of cafes and eateries close by as well as grocery stores, bakeries, butcher and markets. The apartment is on the second floor - stairs not an issue. Thank you Silvia for welcoming us to Amsterdam. We would highly recommend this apartment to family and friends.
Oude West location
This property is well maintained, well stocked with the necessities and very clean.
We found the old stairs to the apartment a bit of a challenge with luggage.
We liked the location which is a bit out of the center.
The two nearest tram lines take you about everywhere.
The caretaker, Sylvia, is delightful and helpful.
I couldn’t more highly recommend this fabulous apartment. It is very well appointed with everything you need - good wifi, washing machine, washing line to hang out clothes and a great CD collection to listen to and much more!!! The bedroom is at the back facing the garden so very quiet at night. However it does face west so would be quite hot in the summer. We were in April so it was fine for us.
There many supermarkets and cafes nearby and tram stops just outside and around the corner. So conveniently located either by walking or a short tram ride.
Joan is a wonderful owner and lovely to deal with but as she is not there Sylvia looks after the guests. She is charming and greeted us at the door right on time and showed us around.
Just be aware it is up two flights of very steep stairs as are many Amsterdam apartments.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would stay here again.
The apartment is spacious, clean, well-equipped and conveniently located near shops, restaurants and tram stops. We appreciated the snacks and refreshments left for us upon our arrival from a very long trip. The information sheets regarding the apartment, shopping and restaurant recommendations were very helpful. We hope to stay here again on next visit.
Oud West has become one of the most desirable, and fashionable neighborhoods in Amsterdam. It borders on the Jordaan and is a 10-minute walk to the center. Our apartment has 5 tram lines (the best way to travel in Amsterdam) within a half-block. The museum area (Museumplein) and Vondel Park are 10 minutes by tram (three tram stops) or a 15 minute walk. Leidseplein is within walking distance.We are a few stops from the Dam(or a 15 minute walk) and Central Station. The Anne Frank House is a 10 minute walk.There are supermarkets, drug stores, a laundromat, as well as many great restaurants, cafes, bars, and small retail shops, all within a block or two. It is a wonderful mix of many small, boutique type shops as well as neighborhood stores and services. The apt is 3 blocks from "De Hallen" the beautiful new food and arts complex just completed that used to be the old tram depot.
It is a really wonderful neighborhood close to everything, but a little away from the heavy tourist area.
