“Fantastic hosts & great value for a short weekend trip in Amsterdam”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

6 adult members of my family spent a weekend recently in Amsterdam. Our hosts Chan & Gijsje could not have been nicer or more helpful. Prior to booking Gijsje provided a lot of helpful information and advice for our trip. The apartment was very comfortable with lovely views of the Herengracht canal and was quite central. The breakfasts were delicious with a wide variety of choices. There was more than enough for lunch also. In addition Gijsje provided discount tickets to all the museums. This not only provided a big reduction in price but also enabled us to fasttrack the queues which was really fantastic when we had such a short time in Amsterdam. We cannot say enough about how helpful Chan & Gijsje are - they really did whatever they could to make our trip memorable. We would definitely recommend this accommodation for anyone visiting Amsterdam and hope to come back here again some day.

“Amazing stay in Amsterdam thanks to the fantastic help and advice from owners”
Reviewed April 19, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who would like to make the most of a trip to Amsterdam. We stayed for the weekend and Chan and his partner were so helpful and generous with their time to try to ensure we got the most out of our short stay. The breakfast was amazing so much food and so fresh We were six adults from one family and we all agree if we were going back to Amsterdam we would only ever stay here

“Excellent location and property, wonderful hosts--exceeded expectations”
Reviewed April 12, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This was our first time in Amsterdam and we traveled with our 4 children, ages 8-16. Staying with Chan and Gijsje felt like visiting grandparents--we took to calling her our "Amstergram!" They went out of their way to welcome us, provide great breakfasts (including gluten free baked goods for our son with celiac), and help us get discount tickets to local attractions. They provided great recommendations on what to do during our stay. The house was charming, comfortable, and included all amenities. It was a great central location, just off Rembrandt square. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

“Perfect location and excellent hospitality”

person found this review helpful

Stayed 6 people at this beautiful property. The location is perfect, in walking distance to both Leidseplein, Dam/Red Light and next Rembrandtplein. The hosts were fantastic, extremely helpful and interesting to chat with. The breakfast was amazing and the perfect hangover cure. They even stocked the fridge! The rooftop and private terrace was very cosy and a great spot to hang out, but a bit cold during our March stay. I would recommend this apartment to everyone - you will not be dissapointed.

“"Room with a View" and sparkling Dutch hospitality.”
Reviewed April 4, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The apartment has a spectacular view over the canal and we spent many hours gazing at the changing scene below. We were perfectly placed to visit Ann Frank's House and the main museums plus the famous Red Light District. We were really impressed with the Van Gogh museum and the Josephine and Napoleon exhibition at the Hermitage.Don't miss the beautiful Wilhet-Holtthuysen museum across the Herengracht canal. Our hosts have tickets for all these at a discounted rate which enabled us to avoid the long queues. Chan and Gijsje's hospitality is second to none. On our arrival, after a long chat, Gijsje learned all about our food preferences and every day was a culinary delight. Breakfast consisted of a variety of exciting bread, different cheeses, eggs, bacon, muesli, yoghurt, fruit and on the last day some wonderful Dutch pancakes which were heavenly. Chan and Gijsje are very attentive and generous hosts. We were told to use any leftovers for lunch- although our breakfasts sustained us for well past the lunch hour! We can thoroughly recommend the apartment and its facilities as an ideal base for visiting Amsterdam.

“A beautiful and comfortable flat, ideally located, with perfect hosts”
Reviewed November 8, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I stayed with my eighty two years old mum for a long week-end. We had a fantastic breakfast, kind and generous hosts. The bedrooms are quiet and comfortable, and the main room has fantastic views to the canal. Highly recommended.

“Perfect location with perfect hosts”
Reviewed November 1, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This apartment is located on the Herengracht canal, just off Rembrant Square and so is well situated for a few days sight seeing in Amsterdam. We walked to all the usual tourist sites and didn't need to use public transport at all.

The apartment was well equipped for our stay and as others have commented, our hosts Chan and Gijsje were the most hospitable people you could meet. They went over and above to ensure we had all we needed and wanted - the breakfast was unbelievable in range of food and quantity! My kids are now addicted to sprinkles on bread! You won't need to buy lunch during your stay here...

We can't rate this apartment and it's hosts highly enough. If you want to stay in a traditional Dutch house in a great location, with everything you need, then look no further. Just be sure you can manage the near vertical stairs!!
