We rented two of the apartments for 3+ weeks and had a terrific stay. Parents plus teenagers, plus occasional visitors. The location could not be better. The apartments are very nice. The kitchens are quite functional and the living and sleeping accomodations are more than adequate. The Garden apartment offers the extra benefit of having outdoor space, which is remarkably quit. You don't really feel like you are in the middle of a big city. It was easy to get to museums, restaurants, the Ajax stadium, etc. Shopping in the area was terrific. Several bakeries offering delicious breads, farmer's market around the corner, etc. If you like to work out with a trainer, there is a fantastic gym just steps away from the apartments; its called "Evolve". We did about 15 sessions there and highly recommend them. What else? The teenagers (17-19) loved the stay every bit as much as the parents did. They rented bikes and explored the town extensively, including being exposed to the "coffee shops" and red light areas, which gave cause to interesting family discussions (seriously). The apartments and the neighborhood felt very safe. Bottomline, this vacation was a big success and we all hope to spend more time in these apartments in the future.
