We had a wonderful stay in Amsterdam at Heleen's apartment. The apartment is on a great location with views of the Amstel River and is a short walk to some wonderful restaurants. The apartment was very nice and perfect for our 5 night stay. Heleen was very helpful and gave us some great recommendations, and we enjoyed chatting with her for a bit, learning about the area!

Heleen met us and kindly waited as were delayed arriving. She had great advice to share on cafes,local food, transport and markets and made us feel very relaxed using her apartment for a few days.Also gave us pamphlets on sight seeing and a great map of Amsterdam. She was prompt and helpful when we needed help getting her tv to work, although in the end we were rarely going to watch tv as so much to see in Amsterdam. It was peak tourist season but the apartment is out of the madness of central down town . It was so so peaceful at night despite all the apartments in the area.The two balconies meant it was also bright in the living areas, with the back overlooking trees of the central courtyard enhancing the feeling of space. We hardly cooked during our stay as de pijp had lovely food stores , great Cafes only 5 minutes away, and even organic supermarket with pre prepared delicious meals. We used trains and trams each day and both easy to access and walking was great in that area too as the canal is less than one minute away. Initially the 2 flights of stairs looked challenging but we soon got used to it and worth the climb to get into the cosy serenity of Heleen's apartment at end of long days sight seeing.

Thanks for your precise comment! The paint is caused by painters on the ground floor apartment. Sorry for the inconvenience. The floor in the bedroom will be replaced in september and yes you are right about it. The neighbor downstairs is abroad for months. Wich is nice and quiet but mail stays at his front door waiting...:). And the (new) toilet brush was not in the right place so you could not use it. Sorry

Heleen is a prompt communicator and while she couldn't be there to welcome us, she made sure to connect me with her friend and neighbor Birgitta who met us at the apartment with keys and a notebook with her personal suggestions on restaurants, neighborhoods and museums to visit. We didn't think we'd love Amsterdam as much as we did and have to say that Heleen's flat had a lot to do with it. The description and photos are accurate but don't adequately convey what a lovely retreat it is. Located on a quiet residential street in the De Pijp yet within walking distance to great food (Albert Cuypmarket and surrounding eateries), cafes, shops (Gathershop is a lovely boutique of handcrafted clothing and accessories and just around the corner), parks, and the major museums. Do stop by Hartog's Volkoren, a bakery that specializes in whole grain breads, cakes, crackers and cookies (just an 8 minutes walk)! We slept well with my husband and I in the master bedroom in the back, our teenage daughter in the bedroom facing the street and our preteen son on the sofa bed. If we have a chance to visit Amsterdam again, we wouldn't hesitate to try and book Heleen's flat!

Staying in Heleens apartment was great from the first minute. We were greated with a nice snack when we arrived, and Heleen sat down to give us some local advice. The apartment is lovely and well planned, in a nice area outside of the busy and touristy parts of Amsterdam. There are many great restaurants nearby, as well as a local park, and the city is not very far away either. We would highly recommend Heleen and her apartment to anyone looking for an authentic experience in Amsterdam.

Love to travel and love to be home. Amsterdam is for more than 30 years my home base. I enjoy the multicultural atmosphere and in a way it often feels like I am traveling in my hometown. There is always something new to explore.
I am looking forward to share my local 'highlights' with you!
