We had 4 couples stay for 3 nights prior to boarding our river cruise. We had an excellent stay. Enjoyed the atmosphere of the apartment and Amsterdam. Had a great time and Charles was excellent in providing the services needed for our stay. Thanks for a great stay and will have lasting memories of our stay.

From the host to the amenities, everything was awesome! Far enough away from from the hustle and bustle of the Dam Square area yet close enough to walk to it. Quaint canal apartment in a great neighborhood. We walked everywhere - to the grocery store, restaurants, Filmhallen, De Hallen Foodhallen, Dam Square, Red Light District, Vondelpark, Museum Quarter, Casino area, Leidseplein, De 9 Straatjes (the 9 streets shopping), Melkweg, Jordaan (Anne Frank House), Bloomenmarket, Spui, Old Town shopping, you name it we walked it! Great restaurant choices nearby: Du Cap, Foodhallen (lots to choose from) , DAPPER, Mook, The Seafood Bar, TEDS and Ter Marsch & Co. (the best burger in Amsterdam). Would recommend the Blue Boat Company canal cruise to get a bit of history and learn your way around the canals. We picked it up over by the Casino/Hard Rock Cafe. Would definitely stay here again!
My husband had a great 4 days with 7 of his friends in Amsterdam! He was very happy with the apartment. Its very central, clean and spacious. The corespondance with Charles was great! We can only recommend this hoiday home!
Our extended family of eight met in Amsterdam for a relaxing week of sightseeing. This apt couldn't have worked out better. I just reread all of the English reviews on Trip Advisor and couldn't find a negative comment. In our increasingly picky world when does that happen? The photos are accurate too though none capture the lovely sunrise from the front 4th floor bedrooms. We arrived to a clean, light filled space with plants, fresh flowers, numerous Dutch packaged snacks, and milk, juice and beer in the refrigerator. I will emphasize a few things. Our group included two 60ish grandparents, four assorted 30ish adults, a six month old baby and a busy two year old with stair climbing experience. The stairs going up two very steep flights with irregular tiny treads to get to the main living area on the 3rd level could be a challenge to some both going up and down. The mother of the two year old blanched when seeing them on arrival but the interior of the apt has many doors and it wasn't a problem. The photo of the stairs on the site only shows the flight from the 3rd level (kitchen/living room, bedroom, bathroom, WC, laundry, and balconies) to the 4th level (two ensuite bedrooms and bunk room). Having the laundry facilities was so convenient with two small children and adults who traveled light. The location between two major tram stops and delightful strolling distance from most everywhere meant we could come and go from the apt during the day. The entry keypad was greatly appreciated with our large group....no worrying about who had the key. The tiny dishwasher in the kitchen was surprisingly useful. A fun playground was at the end of the block. The apt was amazingly quiet. At night you could hear the occasional siren but that was about it. We also could not hear either the jet lagged children adjusting to a 9 hour time change between the bedrooms or floors or our neighbors. Charles, the owner, resides with his family on the 1st and 2nd floors (with separate entrance). They were helpful but not intrusive and assured us that we weren't too loud. He provided a highchair and play-and-pack style crib for our stay. I chose the apartment primarily for the number of bedrooms but we got so much more!
5 of us stayed at the beginning of August for a week. Apartment was as expected - spacious and well-equipped. Apartment is just a short walk to city center and sites like Anne Frank House. If you prefer you can also take trams at stop up the block. Apartment has all kitchen amenities so you can enjoy meals at home or in one of the nearby cafes or restaurants. And a great perk is the washer/dryer - you can pack less since you can wash clothes. This apartment is a perfect pick for groups.
