What a fantastic welcome. We were greeted by the owners and welcomed at 10am, even though we were early and the apartment wasn't normally ready until 2pm.
After a cup of coffee, we were given the rundown of the apartment and tips and advice on everything from trendy places to eat, which tours were the best to take and an offer to take us to the airport instead of negotiating the train or relying on a taxi.

The view from the window is a little quirky, but again normal for Amsterdam.
There was a coffee machine, detergent for the washer, welcome drinks in the fridge, very welcome beers and cold drinks.
Jan insisted on helping with the luggage both on arrival and leaving.
