  • A comfortable and cosy stay.

    "When contacting Charlotte the owner she was very quick to respond, and extremely helpful. The gardenhouse is very comfortable, and we enjoyed the country-feel of the space in the city. The walk into the main part of town is very easy - and very pretty - and you get to pass over many lovely bridges, discover cafes and restaurants and the walk to the popular museums is very easy too. Highly recommended for its location in the city. The travel from the airport is very easy, and tram number 4 is the nearest one to the gardenhouse. The bed on the mezzanine level is very comfortable, and the space (for us two) was perfect. The kitchen was well-equipped for breakfast and light meals, with a fridge (easily stocked from the supermarket round the corner) and pots, pans, toaster, kettle, cups, plates and bowls are all provided - and towels for the shower room and sink too. There is a good size dining table, and outdoor table and chairs too (in the photos) and we felt very safe and welcomed into the house. There are guidebooks that have been left, and these great walking map cards in a little box that someone previously has left - these were very handy as little maps to walk around with. We spent most of our time out of the house, but it was a lovely place to come back to at the end of the day, and it isn't too far to stop back in during the day if you needed to, as we did once to drop some things off. I would highly recommend this house for a couple (or perhaps three as there is another smaller mezzanine with a single bed), however the stairs up to the mezzanine levels are a bit steep, but perfectly manageable. There is enough space for a comfortable stay (we were there four nights) and Charlotte was very accommodating. For the two of us she lent her museum passes which we were able to use to save on entrance fees, which was so very kind. I would certainly stay in the gardenhouse again (hopefully soon!) when we next take a trip to Amsterdam. Thank you Charlotte!"

  • Great stay

    "We spent three days at ARK16 and had a wonderful time. The accommodations were as advertised and everything was neat and tidy. The breakfast foods were excellent, the bed was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water. The location and convenience to the GVB transit were excellent. We got the transit pass for three days and traveled with ease all over Amsterdam. Annette, thank you again."
