A truly wonderful place to stay, don't be put off by the fact that its someone's house, you will hardly notice this and the rooms offer privacy.
The old canal house is located away from the madness of central Amsterdam but still in a great affluent location, near tram stops, restaurants, shops and in easy reach of all tourist attractions.
Martijn the host was very friendly and happy to help point you in the right direction. My tip for restaurants is to find out where the locals go.
The room/suite itself was spacious, airy and clean. The king size bed offers a great night sleep, the bathroom was brand new and we had a great window, which opens out and over looks the canal. Great view when sharing a sunset with a nice bottle of wine (and cheese!) watching the world go by.
The breakfasts were a healthy variety as well as cooked food. I personally loved the fresh pastries from the local baker, hmmmm yum.
Overall I was pleasantly surprised and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It is also very reasonably priced too and i will definitely go back and return one day.
