Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of (6) had a wonderful time staying at this property for 5 days. The owner communicated all of the information we needed ahead of time and checking in was quick and easy. The house is very spacious and has lovely interior decorating. The location couldn't have been better, as it was a quick walk to many shops/restaurants/bars/cafes and only a couple of blocks to the train. Highly recommended if you need a great place to stay with a larger group!

Owner's Response: So right after this guest checked out we indeed found bed-bugs in the apartment. We immediately took action and replaced all the beds and Rentokil came directly to exterminate the little bastards and we have not found one since! Of course this has been a nightmare. I wish this unfortunate guest would have contacted me during his stay (which he DID NOT) because I would have taken immediate action and offered him another accommodation and a full refund of course. We find it highly important to give our guests a fantastic experience and I think our other reviews prove this review has two sides to it. We don't know where this creatures came from all of a sudden but we are certain that there weren't any before. I hereby guarantee all my future travelers a bed-bug-free experience in this beautiful canal view apartment!

Beautiful apartment on canal side

  • 5 of 5

Very well appointed and comfortable apartment. Quiet location, but easy walking to all main sites. Outside space a bonus. Would definitely recommend this apartment for families and small groups looking for a peaceful location on a quiet canal

Quiet home base

  • 5 of 5

The property is well-situated. It's down a quiet residential street, but it's walking distance to great restaurants, fun shops, a grocery store and all forms of transit. The rooms are a decent size, and there are good linens and towels. There's storage for clothing and luggage. The kitchen is fairly well-stocked. We did go out to get a corkscrew and a spatula and there's limited cutlery. It does have a nice Senseo coffee maker. We took advantage of the shuttle service, and it was nice to have that arranged for us. We'd recommend this to travelers who are looking for a 'home away from home'.

Great place to stay for a family

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (including 3 kids ages 12, 13, &16) stayed at the Van Gogh Suites apartment in June and really enjoyed it. It's very comfortable, and the washer/dryer were greatly appreciated. It is located in a nice spot. Quiet, but a short walk into the more popular/louder spots. The apartment was clean and as described. I found my bed to be very comfortable. My kids didn't complain, so I assume theirs were as well. I called Richard when we arrived and he gave us the code and a quick little info on the closest amenities, i.e. grocery mart around the corner. The apartment is located on the Prinsengracht (canal) that you can follow along to get to the Jordaan region. But we also walked straight through towards Centraal Station and other things located in the city center. We took a bike ride with We Bike Amsterdam into the countryside which was fantastic, despite the drenching rain that started about halfway in--I highly recommend finding a bike company and taking a tour. We also took a train ride to Haarlem for one of our days, including a trip out to Zandvoort to see the North Sea. There is a really nice bakery called Bakhuys a block or so away. We found it on our last morning, unfortunately. Overall, a really nice place to stay.

This apartment was perfect for us! It's beautiful and in a great location. We loved the canal area of Amsterdam. We had some family join us for dinner and there was plenty of room inside to sit and eat, and dishes for 14 of us. The garden/courtyard is a shared area, so we took turns with our neighbours. The apartment is clean and well-maintained, and worth the price.
