About carla minnema

We have lived here since marriage, our two daughters grew up in this house and neighborhood.

They live on their own now (one abroad) and there is too much room in our house.

We like to meet other people and learn their culture and are glad we can offer a nice quiet place in the -mostly- busy city of Amsterdam.

This is a quiet neighborhood and we ask you to respect this.

carla minnema purchased this apartment in 1985

Quaint & Enchanting Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We had a 5 girl getaway and stayed in this perfect loft apartment. It was so quaint and enchanting. It was in a perfect location, could walk everywhere. We got a feel for how the locals live. Neighborhood was nice a quiet with a wonderful view of the canal. Great location. For those that like to bike, bicycles were available for rent by the owners and/or neighbors….this was definitely the way to go. Could get around easily and see even more of Amsterdam. Even went across with our bikes on the Ferry (free) and ventured into the countryside which I highly recommend. The owner, Carla and her husband, were absolutely wonderful. Close enough if we needed them, but not intrusive at all. Carla provided us with recommendations for restaurants and sightseeing activities. Her husband was going to take us on a boat tour of the canals, but the day we planned to go, he had issues with his boat. He graciously contacted a neighbor who took us instead. It was nice to get a personal tour of Amsterdam via the water by local who provided us with interesting tidbits regarding the historical facts.

We had a trip of a lifetime!

Clean, comfortable and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Travelling from USA, we stayed for 4 nights with family from Holland and Belgium (6 people in total). The apartment is clean and nicely set up. There are no individual bedrooms, but as a family travelling together this was wonderful- lots of chatting and laughing! Loved the location!! Beautiful views and a short walk from everything (and right off the bus line). Stairs are steep so not good for people not up for the climb, but we had no problems. Owners are very, very nice and helpful. We hope to visit again!

Great place to relax and explore Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and charming loft apartment in an incredibly peaceful neighborhood close to the city center. We stayed there in June as a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids- ages 5, 10, and 12). We all loved the proximity of sites and the charm of the island. I will definitely be back the next time I'm in Amsterdam!

Wonderful Location and Owners

  • 5 of 5

What an outstanding trip. This loft is set in a safe, historic and beautiful neighborhood, with close proximity to public transport and everything you could wish to do in Amsterdam. The loft was spacious enough for 6 of us--2 smaller children, to stay for two weeks comfortably. There is a grocery store in walking distance, kitchen in the loft and a washing machine which made family travelling easy. The price was very reasonable for the area. I would highly recommend to anyone--except those unable to walk up stairs.

Thanks Ben and Carla for a wonderful stay.

Lovely property but unwelcoming host

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was beautiful and in a good location. But....we were not impressed with the hosts - they were tactful in asking for more money out of us due to extra cleaning which were rather unreasonable. I would only recommend this for families and not for any young people, we felt the hosts did not appreciate young adults.

Family Trip to Europe

  • 4 of 5

Nice studio apartment. Clean, well equipped and relative spacious in an old building with a lot of character. The bed in the upper level may be difficult to access for someone with limited mobility, but not a problem for us. We travel with four kids (ages 11 to 15) and this apartment was ideal for our needs. The location is great, 15 min walk to the Train Station. Lots of restaurants, cafes and shops are at a short walk from the apartment. We were greeted by Ben who was very kind to welcome us at midnight (flight delay) and to give us some useful tips. My only suggestion would be to install a curtain in the shower to keep the floor of the bathroom dry. Overall, we had a good stay and would come back to this apartment.
