Comfortable, well equipped, quiet yet convenient location, lovely view.

  • 5 of 5

We (my husband, son, and daughter-in-law) spent 3 nights at Mark's apartment. Wieteke, Mark's proxy host, met us there as we arrived and showed us how to use the elevator to get our luggage up to the 4th floor. We used the stairs the rest of the time, but the elevator was convenient for the luggage on our first and last days there. She showed us the apartment, chatted a bit and then she rode away on her bike. I texted her a couple of times with questions and she was prompt to answer.

The apartment itself was clean, airy with a great view of the canal and street below, and well furnished with comfortable furniture and plenty of towels and linens. We enjoyed the Nespresso Machine for coffee in the mornings. I even used the washing machine to do some laundry.

Location was perfect. It was easy to walk into the Jordaan district where the streets are full of quaint shops an restaurants.

Mark's place was perfect for us and I recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet, local, Amsterdam experience .

Beautiful view and close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great. I was thankful for the lift to the top floor since we had quite a bit of luggage. The view and all the windows in the living room were wonderful. It was an easy walk everywhere we wanted to go, and a grocery store and beautiful shops are just around the corner.

The master bed was quite comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.

A couple of improvements that could be made are simply better and bigger bathroom towels, and my daughter complained that the second bedroom bed was quite hard and uncomfortable.

Great Location - Wonderful View

  • 5 of 5

Mark's apartment exceeded our expectations! Neat, clean and quite spacious...the accommodations fit our needs perfectly. It was just a 20 minute walk from the train station and center of the city; 15 minute walk to Anne Frank museum; 40 minute walk to museum district. Loved our visit to Amsterdam!!

Excellent accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay. The accommodation was very clean, spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. Location was very central, 15 minute walk from Central Station and a 5 minute walk from several very good restaurants. The canal view was beautiful. Very quiet and safe area. We had a wonderful stay.

So beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this perfectly located apartment. My favorite - the view from the living room. I could stare all day /night. The apt was clean, spacious with a super comfy couch. A few suggestions- all fixable - pls have a coffee machine that works and one that is easy to operate, perhaps a French press vs a a complicated Nespresso, more music/ stereo, more DVDs and cloth napkins. The elevator is a bigger issue - not sure why it didn't open on our floor when going up.- it would be a huge issue if someone were disabled or had difficulty walking up 4 flights we would load up the elevator with groceries but then had yo walk up the stairs to open the elevator door from inside the apt. Other minor item-a few more lamps iin the living room and reading lamps by the bed. All items that if taken care of- I'd be back again in a my minute. We loved our time in Amsterdam. Thank you Joanna for recommending Lucca's. It was excellent
