“More-than-gracious hospitality in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We highly, highly recommend staying here. Park Mansion deserves every single one of the glowing reviews here on tripadvisor.
Charles contacted us by email before our departure from the US so we knew what to expect and gave us the number for a fixed price car from the airport.
On arrival at # 15 we were met by Iggy who welcomed us at the front door, hauled our luggage upstairs and then spent a lot of time explaining the amenities and showing us around. He made several restaurant suggestions as well.
The apartment is spacious and lovely. The kitchen cabinet was filled with delicious provisions for our stay and every day a special "culinary delight" was delivered to our door. (We loved the postcard notes from Charles and Iggy we discovered each day)!
The apartment is in a fabulous location, an easy walk to Rijks Museum and Van Gogh Museum.
You will not regret a decision to plan a stay here. We can't wait to go back.
Thanks to Charles and Iggy for a memorable, exquisite stay in Amsterdam.

My 21 year old daughter and I stayed here for 3 nights and loved every minute of it (despite having to share a double bed! we both agreed it was worth it). The apartment is beautifully decorated (we visited one of the historic house museums in Amsterdam and I told Charles I thought his apartment was better than the museum); the attention to detail in equipment provided was unparalleled; and the food supplied for breakfast was amazing -- we couldn't eat it all -- and when we came back to the apartment in the afternoon there was a freshly cooked apple pie one day and a quiche the next --no need to buy dinner. Add in complimentary laundry (and ironing) service -- outstanding value.

We have rented between 20 and 30 vacation apartments/houses in our travels over the past 10 years. This one is truly outstanding. From the first time we contacted Charles and got a prompt response until we departed everything was first rate. The apartment is well arranged, well appointed and very clean. What really makes it outstanding is his attention to detail and personalized service. The well stocked and replenished refrigerator to the bath robes were only a small part of what made our stay great. The biggest difference was Charles taking the time ( over an hour) to not just explain how all the appliances worked but to go over a map of Amsterdam and clearly label his recommendations. We found all his recommendations spot on. Would stay there again in a heart beat.

The apartment is charming, as it is well equipped and conveniently located. We especially enjoyed the leafy outlook from both sides of the apartment. Much has been written of the host, Charles and it is all true. His extra efforts convert the experience from pleasant to extremely enjoyable. If you can afford the cost then it is a big "yes."

Had a very enjoyable stay (16/05/13-19/05/13) and the host was very accommodating. Was allowed to check in earlier and it was hassle free calling the airport transfer recommended by Charles. The apartment was tastefully decorated and comfortable. Would surely stay there again the next time I come for holidays. Truly a gem in Amsterdam.

Charles and his staff provide impeccable service. All of our needs were anticipated and all of our requests were satisfied almost immediately. The location of the apartment was perfect for us. It's in a lovely residential area, adjacent to Vondel Park so we could enjoy walks in the park. It's very close to the tram/bus stop and all areas are within walking distance. It's in a secure building and there is a safe in the apartment. The apartment is on the second floor and the stairs are a little step but quite manageable. We had help with our luggage, too. It's beautifully decorated and it's bright and airy with large windows. The bathroom is small but perfectly functional. The living room of the apartment has a juliette balcony and a view of Vondel Park. It was lovely to open the balcony door and watch people bicycling and walking in the park. The dining area has a view of the garden at the back of the mansion. The food, wine and beer that Charles supplied was first-rate and delicious. There was so much food and it was so varied that we only ate dinner at a restaurant once. Each day we would receive "Charles mail" under the door. They were lovely, thoughtful notes on postcards - suggestions on what to do or simply notes telling us that fresh croissants,etc were ready for us. Charles is a gracious host and his staff were equally kind and thoughtful. We would happily return.

The Park mansion has to be seen to be believed. This is a truly outstanding apartment,offering all the facilities that you could want. It is truly comfortable, spacious,well located opposite one of the best parks in Amsterdam, 5 min walk from the great museums, and if you are music lover, the Concertgebouw is also a brief walk away. There are many excellent restaurants close by, excellent public transport to get you to all parts of Amsterdam. What makes this place special is the superb attention that the owner shows you. He goes out of his way to make sure that all your needs are met. You will not be disappointed if you book this apartment.
