Description

The space

Beautifully decorated, large (105m2) classic 1920’s style apartment with high ceilings and many original features including wood flooring, corniced ceiling etc.

Guest access

Dining room with table that comfortably seats 8 people, connected to living room by original glass sliding doors.

Living room in turn connects to the study which can be fully closed off and turned into a 2nd bedroom with double sofa bed if required.

Master bedroom with extremely comfortable Californian King Size bed located at the back of the property.

Please note the bed in the master bedroom and the sofa bed are double beds – they can not be separated. As such the flat is only suitable to 4 people if they are people who are happy to share / a family of 4 or two couples.

Well equipped typical Amsterdam style galley kitchen, 1 recently refurbished luxury bathroom with walk in rain shower, separate washing machine and dryer.

Easy access to balconies with little seats at the back and the font of the property.

Interaction with guests

When the flat is not let out, I stay there myself most weekends which means it is fully equipped and instantly inhabitable at the start of the tenancy. This adds real character and is ideal for a short stay as it means no need to buy or bring staples such as coffee, toilet paper, pepper and salt, detergent or a hairdryer (I just ask you to replenish if you run out of something). It also means that (apart from the bathroom) the flat is not "empty". I normally store family pictures and other personal items away but as you can see from the pictures it is very homely.

The neighbourhood

While Old South is a classic residential neighbourhood, local supermarkets (Marqt & Albert Heijn), a green grocer, cobbler, Amsterdam’s famous French bakery (Le Fournil), and a cheese and delicatessen shops (L’Amuse), flower stalls, a Bookshops (Ako) and bike rental can all be found within a few hundred yards of the flat.

The apartment is also located within easy walking distance of the up market shops in the Beethovenstraat and the Vondelpark.

Elise was a great host, extremely communicative and helpful. Her house was clean and just like it is pictured. The location worked great for us. The only thing we had an issue with was the internet. We weren't able to get much work done while we were there.

Response from Elise:
Thanks Chris for your compliments and feedback. The last few times I was in the flat I also noticed some issues with the Internet (which I hadn't previously experienced). I installed a booster but this doesn't appear to have solved the issue and I have now ordered a new router which will be installed shortly. I apologies for the inconvenience caused and am glad the property did meet your expectations in all other regards.

I had a wonderful experience. The location was perfect and just a quick train ride away from the city center. Elise's directions were very thorough and greatly appreciated. The apartment was beautiful and immaculate. I highly recommend staying here.

Thank you so much!! The owner really turned the high heels around:) She fixed the apartment so it was ready for us the next day already. The apartment is big and spacious, with balcony in both sides. Everything was nice and clean:) The area is nice and quiet. Its a short trip from the Airport. The tram downtown is just around the corner. We preferred to walk, took around 30 min in really nice surroundings. You also have bakery, grocery just around the corner. I highly recommend this place for everybody:) Thank you very much for living in your apartment:)

Elise your apartment was absolutely amazing, grand and immaculate and was definitely a home away from home! As a frequent commuter to Amsterdam with work, it was a pleasure to come back to an apartment which felt like home. Elise was an absolute star when it came to communicating, including providing all the top tips of places to eat, visit and more...Will definitely be back again soon! Many thanks - Todd

Elise was very welcoming and helpful, we did not have the opportunity to meet in person, her husband Paul gave us a lift to the apartment from the Metro. She was always available by email and phone , but we never had a need to call. The apartment was lovely, clean, comfortable, in a quiet neighborhood and very close to transit lines that take you to the city center or the airport. Kitchen is well stocked, very homey, would stay here again, the visit was too short! Thank you Elise.

The apartment was perfect! I spent six days/nights with my 16 year-old son and enjoyed the spacious and well-equipped home. The reservation was easy and communication with the owner Elise easy and prompt. Elise provided excellent information on how to get to the flat from the train station (within walking distance from Amsterdam Suid) as well as great suggestions on where to rent bikes (down the street) nearby grocery stores and bakeries, etc. The house had maps, guidebooks and information nearby sites as well as neighboring cities. We wish we had several weeks to stay and enjoy the apartment and Holland for longer. Sarah, Seattle WA
