We have two sets of neighbours upstairs and they appreciate keeping it pretty quiet in the evenings after 10 pm. Make sure that you keep the hall passage clear. Also ensure that the front door to the hall is closed behind you and triple lock our front door, close all windows when you leave and lock the door to the roof terrace. Also, please do not open the front windows to the street (they date from the 1700s). We do not allow other pets-fortunately we only have 2 goldfish. You can smoke on the roof terrace, please try not to smoke below the neighbour's windows.

We spent a wonderful week in this fabulous family home. There was plenty of space for our family with two young children over New Year celebrations. The location could not be better for us and Jordaan district is simply beautiful. Each day we visited sites across the city on rented bikes which were very affordable. The central areas are only 10 minutes walk away and we loved exploring the canal belt. The home was warm, comfortable and well equipped for our family. We hope to return on another occasion to explore more this wonderful city from the same base. Our hosts provided all required information so we could relax and enjoy our stay. Highly recommended!

Matthew and his family gave us the perfect Amsterdam experience and provided a real home form home. The flat is beautifully decorated with many lovely details and comfortable corners to relax, work, hang, cook and live. The comfortable open plan layout makes this a perfect place for kids as there is plenty of space for play and living. As we were visiting family and friends we needed a space were we could also entertain people and receive guests and this was the ideal place for it. The separate bedrooms are ideal as the main bedroom has a comfy bed and the children's rooms are cosy with plenty of books and toys. We loved the kitchen and we used it a lot, both our families clearly are foodies. Although that said the place is situated in the heart of the Jordaan were you have so much choice in restaurants that you will find everything on your doorstep. We did manny greta day trips to al the lovely museums but also spend time just wandering the neighbourhood which is vert atmospheric and gives you plenty to take in in terms of cafes, galleries and funky boutiques. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and Matthew was always really quick to respond to any questions and made sure ours tay was a real success.

Amsterdam? An unbelievable place to visit! Our stay was truly a pleasure thanks to the hospitality of Matthew and his family. The flat is so much more comfortable and convenient than we could have known. Thank you, Matthew and Airbnb. We could not have asked for a better holiday.

Værten, Matthew, var meget flink og gav os en grundig rundvisning i lejligheden da vi kom for at overtage den. Han gav os en del forslag til aktiviteter og anbefalede gode restauranter og cafeer i nabolaget. Derudover havde Matthew udfærdiget en omfattende guide til Amsterdam på airbnb. Matthew var også meget fleksibel mht. både ind og udtjekningstidspunkt, hvilket var en stor hjælp for os. Lejligheden er lækker og rumlig og ligger i det, efter vores mening, hyggeligste område i Amsterdam. En stor fordel ved lejligheden er dens store terrasse, som er perfekt til at spise morgenmad på og til slappe af på efter en dags hård byvandring. Katten Puss er vældig sød og kælen, men man skal dog helst have lukket hende ind inden man går i seng, da hun ellers vækker den person der sover i pigeværelset.

We are an American/Dutch family living in Amsterdam since 1997. Professionally I am a software executive and my wife volunteers at a government sponsored crisis center. Our two children, Noah (15) and Emily (11) have plenty of toys, games (Wii and PlayStation) board games, legos, doll houses, etc. to keep the kids occupied. We also have a goldfish which needs to be fed..a small request.
