As the property is my private home, I always ask for some background information of the guest(s), like where ar you from, what do you do for a living, who are your travelling with.
-no smoking in the house
-consideration for neighbours
-please handle the two downstairs toilets with utmost care. As these are below street level they are equipped with grinders and can only process 'humand waste' and fair amounts of toilet paper. There is a third toilet upstairs.
Upon reservation I ask an advance payment of 25% after which you will receive a confirmation. In case of cancellation up until 30 days prior to check-in date, I will refund the half the 25%. Remainder of the balance is due one week before arrival.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

About the owner: I've loved Amsterdam ever since I moved there 30 years ago, and look forward to welcome you and help you make the best of your stay. I have travelled a lot and know what makes a homestay worthwhile. As my children (21 and 19) have left home to study, I now have the opportunity to offer my apartment for rent. I work for an ICT Multinational and study Arts & Culture. I like contemporary art of which you will find a lot in the apartment. And I cannot live without books so you will be surrounded by plenty of those too.

Once you see the apartment you'll understand why I still love it since we bought it 23 years ago! It has the best of both worlds: whilst in the middle of Amsterdam the place is very tranquil. The loft style apartment has lots of space; ceilings reach 6 meters. You'll find quiet, space and plenty of green in the garden. The popular nine streets area is around the corner. You can walk (or bike) to all the major attractions in the city. And as you step out of the historic front door you'll smile when you see the beautiful Herengracht canal.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The space, the height of the ceilings, the vide with it's overcrossing 'bridge', the huge windows and the quiet garden! On top of that: location, location, location.
