Great location90% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

My authentic house is rebuild in 1888. Before that, it was used as a so called wevershuis (weaver home).

In 1985 my family was lucky to move in. We enjoy the quiet neighbourhood and the spacious, authentic house. We decided to rebuild the basement and use this room as a gameroom. After my sons moved out I decided to redecorate and rent their rooms to guests. So there are two rooms being rent by AirBnB. The former gameroom is the largest (32m2).

We share the beautiful bathroom (with bath).

Positive: - She waited for us to check in at 11pm Negative: - My friend forgot the window open and door unlocked while running to the corner shop for 5 mins and Marjon became very rude and not accepting our apologies. She then told us she wouldn’t let us store our luggages aft…

It is a pity that the interaction between Gabriela/Ingrid and me was disturbed. I have the experience that if I explain the houserules to my new guests that they never neglect these rules. One exception: two stoned boys who stayed here a few months ago. With them I had the same feeling: there was no communication possible between us. The story about the unlocked door: a short time ago the local police send me a email that there were people going round in this neighbourhood and they had caught some burglars. Advice of the police: "Please, always double lock your door". I told this to Gabriela and Ingrid when they arrived. When I discover the next evening that they had neglect my request I was ennoyed: what is the problem with double locking the door? And .... how can I trust my guests as they neglect the most important houserule? Another thing was that there was loud music in the bathroom after 22.30. I could hear it two stocks higher and I have neighbours ........ Yes, I did agreed at their arrival that they could store their luggage after their departure in the morning. As mentioned in my advertisement: the check out time is 11.00 and because the next morning there would arrive new guests and I had that day some privat appointments as well I had to start cleaning at 11.00. But when on that second evening Gabriela and Ingrid laught right into my face when I made my point about locking the frontdoor I was finished with being kind and solving their problem with their luggage. Most of the time I am happy with my guests. They are absolutely welcome but they have to realize that they have booked a room in my private house and not in a hotel. I think that is normal that I expect that my respect my house rules. Maybe I am spoiled by my other friendly and enjoyable guests.

Marion’s home is typically Dutch and the spacious basement room is a lovely place to stay for accessing all of the attractions on Amsterdam. Also, right at the end of the street is a bar called the Wetering Cafe, where we had a superb night meeting locals and people from across t…

Fiona and her boyfriend Phellanne were nice guests. They were only here for 3 days and had a fully booked agenda for their visit what is logical if you came to Amsterdam. So I nearly saw them and really didn't hear at all!!! They enjoyed the snookertable although the table is put very close to the wall. If you just play for fun than this narrow play-area is not really a problem. This afternoon I saw they left me a note that they will be back. What a compliment!!! So: see you later!

My partner and I stayed in Marjon's home for 3 nights (long weekend). We had some reservations about staying in a private room rather than renting an entire property, however we had absolutely nothing to worry about and after our experience here, we would definitely do it again. …
