Mixed review

The property was well located, as advertised. However, the photos of the property were not current. The kitchen is now very small and on the landing as you enter the apartment not the larger kitchen shown in photos. The desk shown in the entry is now where the refrigerator and microwave sit. It appears that the upstairs bedroom now occupies the previous space of the kitchen. Very misleading.

Also, the bathroom layout was not made clear. It is not as I was lead to believe. Could possibly be a communication issue. The downstairs back bedroom, with a king bed, has an attached room with a sink and a shower ( no toilet). The master bedroom which is also downstairs has a door leading to the main bathroom with the tub, shower and toilet. For adults traveling together this layout isn't convenient. If the people in the back downstairs king bedroom need to use the bathroom during the night they either need to walk through the master bedroom or go up the back stairs, through the dinning room/ living room, go down the half flight of stairs that leads to the kitchen by the front door and then go down another half flight of stairs to enter the main bathroom from the front. This is not optimum. There is a toilet and sink in the upstairs bedroom but once again the bedroom privacy is an issue.

I never saw Richard but he explained that he just became the Father of triplets so being competent adults we were able to let ourselves in with his email instructions. There was no property instruction book of how to work appliances including the AppleTV ( we realized that there was no remote control available as mention in a previous review so the appletv couldn't be used). Also there was no instructions for the washer/dryer. I emailed Richard and never got a response. We ended up doing the best we could.

With some TLC and refresh this would be a very nice place to stay because of the location but for our group of travelers the layout and the misleading kitchen photos and the toilet issue made it just an "okay" experience.

Lovely place.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home, as advertised, but had a little trouble finding the utensils (hidden drawer!) and didn't know that you need to empty the water tank in the dryer -- or the clothes don't dry! We figured it out. Richard was very nice, but very busy; we never met, and he was a little difficult to find the week we were there, but we very much enjoyed our stay.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam. The city is beautiful, and renting an apartment is a much better way to experience it than staying in a hotel. This apartment was decently situated (about 20 min walk to the city center, and similar distance to the museums). However, the apartment was not super well kept. The couch was stained, and the floors were filthy (do not go barefoot). The apartment is advertised to fit 6 people, but there are barely enough utensils for 3. There were also instructions for an AppleTV but no remote. The info card said to contact an email address with any questions, so we had inquired about the remote on the first day and got no response in 4 days. Makes you think what if the inquiry had been more serious? Would they still not have answered? Not so comforting. Lastly, we were hoping to savor and enjoy our last morning in the city, since check out was requested by 11 AM, but by 10:15 AM, housekeeping had already showed up to start cleaning. It wasn't ideal. All in all, though, we had a good time in the city itself. Perhaps we'll visit a different apartment next time though.

Lovely roomy apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay here. Walking distance to all museums, and sights and situated in a quiet area. The apartment could use just a little bit of attention maintenance-wise, but nothing major was wrong. Richard (owner) was understandably a bit delayed in responding to us but I think that is probably just a temporary situation. All in all, it is a very nice property and I would stay there again.

My family and I enjoyed this property very much!

  • 5 of 5

Property is in a great location-quiet with beautiful views of the canal in front and hear birds each morning from the back patio. House has plenty space to share time with each other in common areas or have alone time in your rooms. Property was lovely-well decorated, beds were comfortable, plenty of hot water, and all of us had bathroom space to get ready each morning. ( Five women in my group) Location is perfect-not in the center of all the touristy arena; but an easy walk from the heart of it all. I would use this property again!
