“Superb apartment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I really can't recommend this place enough. Fantastic location, nice view of the
Canal outside the window and the guys couldn't do enough to help.

Actually stayed with a mate because the price was so good, but it'd be a great place for a romantic weekend-I think I might take the missus!

Absolutely loved staying in the apartment! Great location, close to everything you want to see in A dam. I highly recommend renting a bike and seeing the city on wheels. Only downside is little to no parking in area. If you can find alternate transportation into city, do this. Would love to stay here again sometime. Almost hesitant to post as it is a hidden gem.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

We stayed for 4 nights at this apartment. The location us more than great, it's oetfect for us. Right at the heart if this very lively city, close to supermarkets, restaurants and great attractions such as the red light districts. Centraal station us around 15 minutes walk and trams are just meters away. Marten and Jojo are very helpful and at the same time not intrusive as they both are very busy people themselves.

The apartment itself is larger than standard hotel room, comes complete with fridge,electric stove and oven, kitchen utensils, etc. There is no airconditioning but the hot summer weather only affected us for 1 day.

What people may find a bit undesirable will be the very steep and narrow canal houee staircase. Marten had to help us with our luggages as the climbing up can be a daunting experience. Another thing is the bathroom being very small with very little space for the basin. Those who are not used to wet bathroom may not be too thrilled to use it.

To summarise, perfect location, bigger than usual apartment, and great services.

An unforgettable stay.
In mid-August we spent six days in Amsterdam and we stayed at the Pearl apartment.
We'll remember this trip as one of the most fun and enjoyable we've lived, and definitely staying in Pearl has a lot to do with this.
We can only define Pearl with good adjectives.
Comfortable, very clean, spacious, quiet, perfectly equipped. Perfect location, just between the hustle and bustle of Dam Plein and the calm and peace of Jordaan. Lovely views, especially at night. Excellent hosts, completely helpful and discreet at once.
We felt as a part of the city for a few days.
It has certainly exceeded our expectations, which were already high.
100% recommendable. Albert & Mari
Thanks Martin and Jojo.

We loved our stay in this fully furnished apartment. We stayed for 4 nights in the Amber room. The apartment overlooks the Singel canal and has a loft style bedroom. The apartment was spacious and the bathroom was modern and clean. Free WiFi was provided in the apartment and the kitchen came equipped with basic cooking needs (oil, salt etc.). Marten was very nice and even assisted us in carrying our bags up the very steep, narrow stairs. Great location, we walked everywhere and it took us 20 minutes with suitcases to walk from the main train station.

We totally enjoyed our 3rd floor spacious studio apartment overlooking the canal as the sun streamed in through the enormous windows each afternoon.Everything you need has been thought of and Marten the owner is very helpful and unobtrusive.The place is warm, the cleaning lady attentive and location perfect.Two minutes to supermarket and The Dam, there is a great little cafe next door or book a canal dinner cruise with Marten. Flower and flea markets and numerous cafes and restaurants all within walking distance, just watch out for the bicyclists! Would definitely book again.
