The space

Our house is a former post-office and is a monument. The post-office was build in 1900 as a part of the historic village of Sloterdijk (1479).

The house has 125 m2 with 3,5 meter high ceilings. It is authentic restaurated, has a very large livingroom, a master suite with an art-deco twin bed, a television and a bath room. The second bed room has a twin bed and its own bath room. The third bedroom has a twinbed and it's own toilet. The kitchen has a full range of appliances, as well as a dining table with eight seats. Outside you will find a covered terras (30 m2) with a long table, chairs, couches and a fire place. A communal garden (75 m2) with fruittrees and a soccer field.

We are ideally located next to the Westerpark, a landscaped park of nature and culture combined. In the park you will find theatre's, bars, restaurants, a very large pond with a swimmingpool, sportsfacilities, etc. Although quiet, our neigbourhood offers many shops and restaurants on walking distance. With our bicycles you are within 10 minutes at the museum area with the famous Rijksmuseum (Rembrand, Vermeer etc.), the Van Gogh museum and the Stedelijk (museum of modern art). Or in the centre at the palace on the Dam and the main shopping area. In less than a half hour you are at the beaches of Zandvoort or Bloemendaal. You can also use the public transport, the bus and tram stops nearby our house.Trainstation within 10 minutes walk.

Because there is so much you can do in Amsterdam, we will leave plenty of information, as to what to see and do and how best to get around. Or please tell us what you want to do in Amsterdam and Holland, so we can provide you with specific information and places. We want to make sure you have the time of your life here, like we already are doing for more than thirty years.

This grand monument with its unique historic past and her authentic atmosphere, will inspire you to discover Amsterdam.

Booking and arrival were very smooth and easy. The post-office is in a fairly convenient location and next to a really pretty park, with bars and a great weekend market. There's not much privacy within the apartment, but it's an interesting and comfortable place. We loved the large outdoor area.

Benno's apartment was great. It was a really good size and had everything we needed. It is situated just outside Amsterdam centre but has supermarkets and cafes nearby and a frequent tram service into town, though we walked everywhere - halfway along Westerpark you'll find loads of great bars, restaurants etc. The outside space was particularly good to have. The only problem we experienced was bad drainage of both showers, specifically the master bathroom which would flood the bathroom floor after one use and water would creep into the corridor and bedroom. It was quite inconvenient with six of us wanting to shower each day. However, we let Jasper (who hosted us) know and while nothing was done while we were there he said he would speak to Benno and make sure it was sorted. Thank you, Benno!

Me and my friends had a fantastic time in Amsterdam and loved bennos home. A fantastically quirky and historic building which was both comfortable and well priced for the city I've stayed in multiple times. A fully functional and modern kitchen with a fantastic seating area if you fancy a sit down dinner. A large open living room with a vast selection of seating for socialising and using the entertainment facilities such as television, playstation and a sound system. A nice social space in the garden where myself and my friends spent plenty of time. The bedrooms are very interesting but comfortable. The master is a straight forward double with en-suite bathroom and the shower worked very well. The next bedroom has a bunk bed in which I stayed in. Arguably more suitable to an older child or young adult such as myself but highly comfortable to sleep in. At the entrance to the room there is a toilet and shower. The shower is exposed but a towel over the door is simple enough. Once again a really decent shower to use. There is a bedroom located directly under the glass kitchen floor which is accessible by the kitchen. A strange layout but was no issue among my group. The room also has a private toilet so each room benefits from that convenience. I believe this apartment can suit many different groups depending on size or on age. An older couple could benefit from a lovely large place to stay. Groups of young men or women can easily enjoy the space and make use of the facilities provided and a young family would have fun exploring the nooks and crannies of the home and the garden space. The apartments location is fantastic. Close to supermarkets, restaurants, the park, tramlines and the airport is a quick drive. We used the number 12 to get into town often and occasionally I think it was the 14 slightly further down the road. As for the host, he was quick at replying and enabled us to check in as soon as possible as we arrived to Amsterdam very early. His friend greeted us and showed us around and was very friendly and easy to communicate with. All in all a fantatsic host and apartment to spend our time in!

We had a wonderful time in Bennos apartment. With the huge living room, charming bed rooms and a beautiful terrace with garden it`s the perfect place to relax after a long day of walking through Amsterdam. The apartment is located in a nice and quiet neighborhood close to Westerpark, where you can do lots of things like having a drink, listen to live music, visit a gallery or watch a movie in the open air. You also can reach the city center by walking. The kind host gave us a lot of useful information and helped us whenever we got a question. We had a really great time and would stay in Bennos amazing apartment again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!
