very quiet and spacious first floor apartment with with great view on the gracht. pleasant walk to the sights. Good early checking in and storing of luggage at our leaving day, with reliable Bram arriving fast after a phone call. Good bed, but I don't sleep well sharing a big duvet with my partner and asked for an own duvet which was a bit warm then. I would prefere two light summer duvets and a supplementary spare blanket... that's why 3 points for sleep quality

We were in Amsterdam for a wedding and needed a place to sleep 3 adults and a child. We gave grandpa the cottage and the 3 of us slept in the main apartment. It was nicely furnished and had a very sleek kitchen. We were easily able to entertain additional family members when they stopped by because there is seating for 12 people between all the chairs and the couch. It was great to have a washing machine and dryer since the weather was warm and we hadn't brought many short sleeved things, so we needed to wash them and re-wear them. There is no AC which may be a problem in very warm weather since the back of the main apartment is like a green house. It was almost like being in a quiet villiage in the center of Amsterdam - so peaceful and charming.

Stayed here for four nights in mid May with my partner and in-laws. We rented the downstairs Garden Suite which is located in the back of the house, and has an additional cottage located across the private patio. For value, it was great, as two hotel rooms of this quality in the city for four nights would have been much more expensive. Main unit has a full kitchen, large living and dining room, 1.5 bathrooms, large master bedroom, and (!) washer and dryer. The garden cottage is much smaller, but perfect for another couple or older kids for sleeping. It is not recommended for young kids as the stairs are very steep to the bedroom/bath. There is a small kitchenette area with a sink, fridge, and tea kettle. The main apartment was very functional, clean, fantastically located in The Jordaan, very close to the Nordemarkt, Nine Streets area, Anne Frank House (just around the corner), and taxi stand one block away at the Westerkerk. Really nice neighborhood, full of cafes and restaurants. Bram was our contact and was great, always answered my emails and calls promptly, and even allowed us to drop our luggage off early so that we could go on our way until check-in.

Echoing another post, the kitchen cabinets are very high up on the wall, and fortunately I was tall enough to reach everything, but for short people, it could be a challenge. We discovered the dryer is not vented and therefore the water-collection reservoir has to be emptied after each load (this type of dryer is not commonly found in the U.S., but we figured it out!), Bram forgot to tell us how to operate the thermostat in the main apartment, and the manual is in Dutch. I suggested that he offer a guide in English. BTW, he is reachable by phone or email at all times, so if there are any issues in the house, you can certainly contact him.

We would definitely return in the future. Thanks Bram!

Room Tip: Don't plan for young kids to stay in the garden cottage - the stairs are typically Dutch = steep...

Ideally located for our needs, because we could walk to everything. Spacious living room and functional kitchen warmed us in windy weather. If you like soft beds, is here on a cloud. Very nice welcome and surrender completely according to our wishes.
When I think about longer - there would be only a tiny note ... the very high-mounted kitchen wall cabinets for me were Little unreachable and a small ladder does not exist. Something similar is probably the cleaners if they have to clean the high levels since they have some streaks on top.

Fantastic Apartment with wonderful romantic first floor view to Keizersgracht, spacious, modern and stylish with good Equipment, short distance to many sightseeing places, restaurants and supermerket nearby

Room Tip: the first floor Apartment with canal view is best, less: smaller souterrain apartment to streetfront...

what a fabulous apartment, everything you needed for a great weekend away. The apartment is set in a lovely area great shops and restaurants close by. The bakery on the corner is great for breakfast supplies. My only advice would be to hold on tight to your bags as my mum had her handbag snatched by a chap on a scooter not far from the aprartment but Bram could not have been more helpful in sorting out everything we needed to do.
Look forward to going back and staying there again.
