  • Great apartment for family of 4.

    "Stayed in different apartment from photos, but was great so did not matter. It was on the 3rd floor and had excellent facilities for 2 adults and 2 children. Jan was very helpful and came with us to park the car at the Park and Ride which saved us a fortune! Excellent location, with easy access to all the canals and museums. We loved the area and all the local shops. Supermarket just round the corner. Jan recommended the library for a meal. There is a great restaurant on the top floor, with amazing views of the city and the building is really interesting to look around. The queues for Anne Frank and Van Gogh were enormous so definitely book your tickets online 2 weeks in advance. Kids loved the Nemo Science Museum and the Ajax stadium tour which was easy to get to on the Metro at central station. We had an excellent stay and would definitely recommend Amsterdam and this apartment. Thank you Jan and family."

  • Very Satisifed Repeat Renter

    "For the past 6 years I have been traveling to Amsterdam on business 3 to 4 times per year for visits of 10 days or so each time. I have stayed in this penthouse apartment every time. The location is superb for my work with the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum. The neighborhood has numerous restaurants and shops. Tram access to the central train station is quite convenient. The apartment is clean, spacious, well-maintained, and well-equipped. There is the added bonus of roof access in warm weather. The landlords are especially courteous and helpful. I have recommended this apartment to friends. My most recent stay was in October 2013."

  • Family Stay in Early July

    "My family (wife and two teenage daughters) and I stayed in here for six nights. The place is clean, comfortable, safe, and I think is actually bigger than it looks in the pictures. The location cannot be better. For those with Rick Steve's Amsterdam book, it is on his "walk through Jordan" tour just down from the Electric Ladyland (worth the visit although I didn't expect it to be). The street is quiet with an excellent Afghani restaurant just across the street and another excellent restaurant down the street called De Reiger (and recommended in Rick Steve's book, although we didn't know that until after we ate there.) The house is a 10 to 15 minute walk to the Anne Frank House and the tram stops (the easiest way to get around town for the tired tourist). The house was redone not too long ago, so the stove, dishwasher, and the kitchen ware are all like new. It also has a washer and dryer that either isn't advertised or I missed it when booking, so that was a nice surprise. Rick was very welcoming and waited for us to arrive even though we were delayed due to traffic and wrong turns. He showed us around the house; pointed out the nearby restaurants, pubs, and the quickest way to tram stops; gave us information on his favorite Indonesian restaurant (try to make time for it); and arranged for a taxi to the airport (for four, it is about the same cost as public transportation) when it was time to leave. He was available for questions during the week, if necessary. He even mailed my daughter's lanyard that she left to us in the US. I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay."
