Description

The space

You'll be in a 3-room apartment with a livingroom where the kitchen is the central spot. I've choosen this house because it's renovated and for it's brightness. The living room is facing south and you can enjoy the sun at the balcony on the front from approximately 10AM till 6PM. I usually have my morning coffee there and an after work drink. Then I move along with the sun to the terrace which is at the backside of the apartement facing north. You can reach the terrace trough two rooms. One is my bedroom, the other one is my work/wardrobe/clutter-space (I hope to decorate it more usefull in future...). The toilet is apart from the bathroom. Both are small but luxury

Guest access

You'll have access to all spaces.

Interaction with guests

I will be travelling when you arrive but I will be happy to help you from a distance with or e-mail. Although I'm not sure how reachable I'm. So I'll make sure there is someone you can contact for any questions in Amsterdam.

The neighbourhood

The Indische buurt is called an "upcoming neighborhood". Indeed a lot has changed. Houses are renovated, bars, restaurants and shops opened their doors and students, young families and people who just started their career moved to this neighborhood. But it has still a rough side. People have different backgrounds and don't have the same level of wealth. It's one of those things which gives this neighborhood the diversity fitting a city like Amsterdam. This is reflected in the Javastraat where little bazars are situated next to fancy new restaurants and boutiques.

Getting around

Train to Central Station (8 min.) and Schiphol (35 min.), 15 minute walk to Muiderpoortstation.
Tram 14 to Waterlooplein, Rembrandtplein and Dam, 6 minute walk to stop Molukkenstraat.
Tram 7 to Muiderpoortstation, Weteringcircuit (De Pijp, Albert Cuyp market) and Leidseplein, 6 minute walk to stop Molukkenstraat.
Tram 3 to Van Woustraat (De Pijp Albert Cuyp market) and Museumplein, 13 minute walk to stop Muiderpoortstation.
Bus 22 to Central Station (20 min.), 6 minute walk to stop Molukkenstraat.

Other things to note

Although this apartment is near to public transport I recommend you to rent a bike. It's the fastest way to move trough Amsterdam. You will see when you pass the tram which left at the same time as you did. But PLEASE practice in this quiet street when you don't have any experience. And when you choose to walk, don't walk on the path for bicycles! For your own good. Amsterdammers ar nice people but they turn into devils when tourists are blocking their way.

And: This house is beautifully renovated but it's still old... If someones having a party, you'll probably hear it. It doesn't happen often, but sometimes you'll hear neighbours having fun. Usually I let them but they calm down when you tell them you're trying to get a sleep. In general people are aware of eachother.

Afcourse I expect you to treat my house like I do. Just a normal way of living, not throwing with things and that kind of stuff ;). Perhaps I should confess my own behavior is abarrent when it comes to my wooden floor. I get rit of my heels as soon as possible and I remove drips of water and other spots with a cloth all the time. I don't expect you to copy this maniacal behavior but I hope you keep in mind that the floor is quite vulnerable. Putting coffee or wine near to the tableside is for me like living on the edge... I'd rather have people smoking at the balcony or terras.

Really nice and modern apartment near a big park (Flevopark). From the livingroom/kitchen you have a beautiful view on trees and let's call it a river (a small one). Lorraine was a really warmly and kind person. If we had have any questions, we got an answer within a few hours. Also the "house manuals", we got after booking, explained nearly everything. Thank you!

Although we didn't get a chance to meet her personally, Lorraine's home is very nice place to stay in Amsterdam! It's in a very quaint neighbourhood with many cute bars and restaurants nearby! I would definitely recommend staying here.

Lorraine's place is really nice and is just like the description says. You will enjoy the nice terrace and everything else for sure. Nice surprise: Lorraine left a welcoming note for us as well as instructions and dutch waffles for our arrival. The apartment is 15 minutes aways from the center by bike and you can find everything you need by walking distance in the neighborhood.

Nos ha encantado el apartamento, todo estaba muy limpio y comunicación al centro era buena cogiendo el tranvía que está a unos minutos andando.Lorraine ha sido muy buena anfitriona , ofreciéndonos facilidades para todo, sobre todo por el inconveniente de nuestra hora de llegada y partida.repetiríamos la experiencia sin dudarlo.

Lorraine me recibió con gran amabilidad e hizo todo lo necesario para facilitar mi estadía, no sólo en el apartamento sino en toda Amsterdam, pues me dio interesantes tips sobre la ciudad.El apartamento es precioso, más lindo aún de lo que aparece en el anuncio, está equipado con todo lo necesario para vivir cómodamente, y está en muy buen estado. La luz es una presencia permanente, ya que llega por ambos lados de la casa. Desde la ventana del estar se ve el canal en el que nadan cisnes y patos, a sólo 50 metros! El barrio es muy tranquilo, con muy buena locomoción hacia todas partes y un gran parque a sólo una cuadra. Las instrucciones para llegar son claras y precisas. Un lugar para recomendar sin duda alguna.
