“Home away from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

What a wonderful surprise to find a warm inviting apartment when we arrived at 11pm at night in Amsterdam. Wilson was there to greet us and assist with luggage. Only 5 steps up to the apartment so know narrow long staircases as often happens in Amsterdam. The fact we had been travelling 2 weeks and had a washer and dryer was fabulous. Wilson has designed and made the bedspread and cushions which were delightful. Bas came and introduced himself the next day and all was well. The view out the window showed the canal and the day to day pedestrian traffic. Turn left and you were near the Rembrandtplein and a good coffee shop. Turn right and a slow casual amble to Damrak in 10 mins or less. There is a book with some suggested eateries, and supermarket shopping. So convenient so easy. A bottle of wine to welcome us was an added bonus. Clean and charismatic. Will be back one day Amsterdam!

This apartment is very well appointed. A full kitchen (with a very modern stove). TV, stereo, phone...you name it. The beauty is that it is 50 feet from a canal which is lined with houseboats. The street is very picturesque. The apartment is comfortable and very well maintained. The owner lives above so he pays careful attention to its condition. You will be close to restaurants, groceries, and other sights. We would stay here again. It is highly recommended.

We stayed in midwinter for a week. The taxi pickup went smoothly and owner was expecting us...with a welcome bottle wine and excellent Hollandse kaas!(cheese). Apartment has all the amenities of home, even more so. Heating and warm shower fantastic for the cold weather. Lastly the setting is fantastic, within walking distance to most tourist attractions. Would definitely recommend this apartment for the above mentioned as well as the friendliness of Bas and Wilson!

We knew this place was going to be perfect for our family when the email correspondence with the owner was so easy. We'd reserved our apartment in the middle of the year - after all, we were staying in Amsterdam for five nights over the New Year period. And when we arrived early after an overnight train trip from Zurich, our bags were stored upstairs until we returned in the afternoon.

The location is wonderful, with an entrance to the underground station just a few steps from the front door - it has a lift, and you don't even need to cross a road (but it doesn't show on the public transport maps; they only show the entrance to the other end of the station). Walk over the bridge towards Rembrandthaus and you'll find a great supermarket on the other side of the road, plus trams on that road.

And it's right near two lovely cafes: we liked Rembrant Corner right on the canal, but also walk along the canal to the Waterlooplein market and you find Bagels & Beans - wonderful food and coffee. And you can shop in the market and then go back for another coffee!

The Delft Blue apartment itself was lovely, with a very private bedroom out the back with an ensuite and a sofa that transformed into a comfortable bed for our daughter . . . and left her with the TV which she loved given she had some English programs to watch after a couple of weeks in German-only Austria and Germany.

We found the apartment perfect for New Year's Eve - slightly removed from the crowds but still close enough to hear the fireworks for hours and hours!

The stairs were a bit daunting as we opened the front door and they were totally worth the climb to reach the beautiful apartment. Natural light streamed in every room and it immediately felt like home. Two bathrooms for our two bedrooms were a definite plus especially with modern features. Washer/dryer was a surprise bonus.

Our landlords were even better. We were welcomed with a smile and a friendly tail wag from Trouble. Treats(human) were offered on the dining table and there were drinks in the fridge.

A great experience.

Room Tip: Must be able to walk up narrow stairs and consider luggage size as well.

The apartment is conveniently located close to old town and the city square, about a 15 minute walk from Central train station. It was slightly off of a main street, so we rarely heard street noise except during the day. Many restaurants, shops, ATM, and supermarket close by.

The apartment easily fit three guests and was pleasantly decorated. We greatly appreciated how accommodating Bas was with our arrival/departure time, and he provided a nice welcome gift of wine and cookies for us. :-) The double bed and fold out couch were comfortable. A broad assortment of amenities were provided such as dishes, towels, washer/dryer, a few movies, etc. A resource book listed information about the neighborhood.

We would highly recommend staying in the apartment and it was perfect for us. We find Amsterdam to be easily navigated and English widely spoken, so we didn't have questions or other needs during our stay. It's a great home away from home.

The only caution - the water pump is in the main bedroom and makes noise with toilet flushes and shower usage. If your travel companions use the bathroom multiple times in the night be prepared for the noise. It wouldn't deter us from staying here again.
