Our house is a beautiful and characteristic 300years old building in a quiet residential street in the middle of the center of Amsterdam. It was completely renovated 4 years ago

The museum square, the lively Leidseplein, the picturesque "Spiegelstraat", filled with beautiful antique shops and art galleries, Prinsengracht and lots of great restaurants, bars and shops are right around the corner from us. Also the lovely 9 streets and lively area 'de pijp' are within a short walking distance.

The space

Our house can comfortably sleep 4 people. It has 3 bedrooms and a small office. All the rooms are light and comfortable.

The master bedroom on the first floor is very spacious (30 m2) and has a very comfortable 4-poster bed which was made from old wooden floor boards from our house. It has an en-suite bathroom with a free standing bathtub and a rain shower. The kids room has a full-size single bed and a smaller kids bed (140 x 70cm). Our guest room has a single bed which can fold out to a double. There is also a second bathroom on the ground floor with a shower and w/c.

The living room is light, with big windows and high ceilings. It has a nice dining area and a comfortable seating/lounge area with sofa and 2 great, very comfortable loungers. We have a big screen TV with digital TV channels and Netflix.

The kitchen is connected to our living room. It's a lovely, fully equipped kitchen (we love to cook and bake:-) with lots of daylight (it has a glass roof!) and it looks out onto our garden. We also love our beautiful little garden, which is in the back of the house. It has 2 sun loungers, a bbq, a nice outside dinner table and a lovely little playhouse for the children.

We put a lot of love into the furnishing of our house. It's a mix of scandinavian design furniture, a few antiques and home accessories that we collected from travels around the world. We also have quite a few moroccan furnishings in the house which make it very cozy. You also find our beautiful moroccan carpets throughout the house. We design them ourselves as part of a little charity project we are doing to support the ladies of Driss' birth village in Morocco, who make the carpets themselves for a fair wage as a labour of love.

We have great Wifi and TV with Netflix for the use of our guests.

Bettina's home is beautifully appointed, cheerful and cosy... and the pictures do not do it enough justice! The house is centrally located, with easy access to bakeries, cafes, restaurants and charming neighbourhoods. Ideal for a holiday in Amsterdam! We absolutely loved staying here and recommend it to everyone.

Wow! My experience with Bettina and her lovely home have been nothing short of exceptional - she is a Superhost for a reason! When planning a trip, I spend hours and hours looking through listings and reviews - trying to find the place that best meets my needs at a price I can afford. Bettina's place was wonderful. Her listing and photos are spot on, and Bettina is an excellent communicator - friendly, helpful, and honest. Bettina helped answer my questions when I was considering her space, and she stayed in touch periodically before, during, and after the trip. Her terrific communication helped me know what to expect when I arrived, I started my trip feeling very excited. Somehow, the house was even more beautiful in person, and my friend and I felt very comfortable in this space. The house is beautifully and comfortably appointed, it was bonus to be able to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine in the garden while listening to the sounds of locals living life in their homes nearby. Thank you for the Prosecco! Though we didn't meet Bettina during this visit, she arranged for Samantha to greet us early in the morning. When our flight was delayed by a few hours, however, Bettina's friend worked to ensure that Paula could let us into the house when we arrived. We were very grateful for everyone's extra efforts, and we felt warmly welcomed. This home is in an outstanding location - on a quiet street but only a short walk to the Rijksmuseum and the other museums in the museum quarter. You also have a few tram options just a few minutes away, whisking you to other parts of the city if you so choose. We took a cab to and from the airport, but I would do local transportation next time - everything is pretty close. Bettina offered to arrange car service for us when we were heading to the airport, and that worked out really well for my friend. Bettina also provided notes about things in the house which was very useful during our stay. The wifi was very reliable, and Netflix did come in handy! Overall, I highly recommend this space. Bettina has thought of so many of the little things that make a stay comfortable, and I'd jump at the chance to stay here again. Please note that there are a number of steps between rooms - if this is a concern for you, please contact Bettina so you understand what is possible for you. A+++

Truly wonderful! We (a family of 5) have stayed in many homes worldwide and Bettina's home is not to be missed. All the rooms are spacious, comfortable, very well decorated, very clean, and we had everything we needed for our 4 days in Amsterdam. The location is perfect; right near everything yet on a more secluded street that makes you feel a part of the neighborhood. The private backyard garden is lovely, and the high ceilings and many windows fill the home with lots of light. Bettina is a hostess-extraordinaire! From her list of tips and recommendations, to her gracious availability to answer any questions... what a gift, making our trip easy and seamless and delightful. We were sad to leave and know where we will stay next time we are in Amsterdam. Thank you so much!

The apartment was perfectly located, very comfortable and very clean. Bettina was very attentive and helpful. You can't beat the location which is steps from everything including the museums! Amsterdam is so compact and walkable so why not stay in a place (on a quiet street) in the middle of the action?

Siamo stati accolti con calore da Bettina anche se non era ad Amsterdam, da Caroline.. ha lasciato un regalo per la mia bambina, ma tutta la casa era perfetta anche per una bambina, tanti giocattoli nascosti ;) e stanza per i piccole regine ;).. siamo stati molto a casa, ha una cucina fantastica e dei letti comodissimi! Insomma grazie Bettina per tutto!
