We had a fabulous time staying at Jaap's lovely home. Jaap's son greeted us and was very helpful with lots of useful information. The apartment was in a lovely residential area, yet only 15 minutes on the bus (at the end of the street) into the city centre. The bikes were great for exploring locally and gave us a real feel of Amsterdam living like a local!! The apartment was comfortable and felt authentically Dutch, which definitely enriched our experience! Jaap was more than helpful in helping us find our way to where we needed to go and a superb host. Thanks.

Jaap's place is lovely and clean and he waited for us to arrive to take us through the instructions for the place :) Unfortunately, we arrived quite late, and there was no shops or food open anywhere near, so maybe make sure your bring your own food/drinks until you can get to some shops (we didn't even have milk for coffee in the morning - although there is a coffee machine with coffee bags which was good!). The best part is having the bikes! We used them everyday which was sooooo awesome! You are 20 mins from the centre though (riding fast!) so be prepared.....

Great Property!!! right near the water which is nice for swimming or relaxing and also very close to shops, bars etc. Easy access to Amsterdam center either using Jaap's four bikes or catching the number 48 bus situated at the end of the road (10mins to centraal, stops at midnight). we all thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who is after a quiet get away from the hustle and bustle of the city center.

Jaap's place is wonderful. Very spacious and full of lights. As described the bus will take you to Central in 15 minutes. if you like water and peacefulness you will love it. Communicating with him was very easy. One of the best place we ever stayed.

Jaaps's place is located near public transportation, which, by the way, is very good. It is a beautiful apartment with clean lines, modern decor, and up-to-date appliances. The living room/kitchen area has fabulous windows with all day light--very cheerful. The neighborhood borders the water, and a morning walk provides spectacular views. It is a large enough space that travelers can separate from each other an unwind on different floors of the apartment. That's especially nice after the close quarters feeling that travelling can give you.

Words nor pictures cannot describe the positive vibe of Jaap's apartment. Peaceful and beautiful neighborhood, not far from the downtown, being there was not only a enjoyment, but a true experience during our stay in Amsterdam. Jaap is great host and real rock star.

Jaap has a lovely home in Amsterdam and it is only a short bus or tram ride into the city centre. It is nice to stay on the outskirts of town where it is a little quieter. Jaap was easy to communicate with and it was easy to organise check in at the time of our arrival. The house was well equipped with everything we needed and was very clean. Recommended if you're looking for a place to stay with easy access to the city but within quiet surrounds.
