“What a great way to travel”
Reviewed September 7, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I have never stayed in anything other than a hotel, but on this trip I wanted a "local" experience and a place to stay that was larger than a hotel room. My initial contact and all following correspondence was responded to very quickly and professionally. I had made arrangements to be picked up at the airport, this went very smoothly. The apartment is wonderful. It is spotless! It is furnished in "Ikea sheik" furnishings. All of the furniture was in great condition and very comfortable. Most important the bed was very comfortable and the shower perfect. The towels were full sized and fluffy. The apartment is very well equipped with a small butlers kitchen.
The neighborhood was charming, convenient and very quiet. Just a short walk to the busy center (15 minutes to central station) and all sights. We tried some of the local restaurants that Wouter suggested- the food and vibe was great and very reasonable.

I did not know what to expect and did not understand the concept of renting an apartment like this. This apartment is run like a business and used exclusively as a rental property. There is a wall of sight seeing information and maps. The rental also included a complimentary cell phone which came in so handy. I am a very particular and frequent traveler. I was willing to pay a much higher price for a 4+ star hotel but wanted to experience all of the benefits of a VRBO. The Wharf House was an excellent value and perfect. I highly recommend this to anyone.

“What a delightful and quiet neighborhood near the canal!”

What a delightful location in the Prinseneiland Island area. We were less than a thirty-minute walk from the main tourist attractions and we had the canal on one side and a quiet neighborhood on the other. The only noise we encountered during the day was the laughter of children swimming and diving in the canal. The location is a stretch for folks who are elderly or do not like to walk, but it suited us perfectly.
The rooms are spacious and clean and the price was quite reasonable considering the exorbitant hotel prices in the tourist area. The family room upstairs is large and has an angular couch to stretch out and relax. We stored our breakfast in the small refrigerator and ate at the large glass-top table every morning. WiFi reception was excellent. The proprietors even have a small collection of movie DVD’s to view. We took advantage of that after a long day of tourist activities. The upstairs is connected to the downstairs by a metal spiral staircase. The downstairs area has separate shower and toilet rooms and the closets are deep and spacious. The queen bed was comfortable. We slept well after our many sightseeing activities. The main entry area on the ground floor has a bookcase with many books, business cards and brochures on things to see, do and eat in the region.
The proprietors, Woulter and Lisbeth, were friendly, helpful and respected our privacy. They had great restaurant recommendations and provided us with a full array of phone numbers in case we had any questions or needs. We used their services for a drive to the airport for our departure. We regret not taking advantage of Woulter's canal tour in his small boat. In short, we would not hesitate to stay at the Wharf House again when our wanderlust takes us back to Amsterdam.

“Delighted!”
Reviewed May 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our experience at the Wharf House was wonderful. The house itself, Wouter's help & warm welcome & the location combined to make it a stay I'd recommend to anyone who is looking for a quiet location without being too far from all the sights. A gem!

“Perfect property with wonderful hosts in tranquil yet central location.”
Reviewed December 18, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Review #13770211 “Wooden Apartment in the Centre of Amsterdam”


A perfect property on a tranquil island yet a short walk from everything.
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

What a wonderful place to stay for our first trip to Amsterdam! How can one possibly be within walking distance of so much and yet to feel like you're on a tranquil island? The answer is actually to be on a tranquil island, as is this outstanding property. A five minute walk across a quaint one-lane drawbridge brings you to a grocery market and a tram stop; a ten-minute walk takes you to the bustling center of the city. The immaculate unit is exactly as described, and Wouter and Liesbeth are kind, considerate, and immensely helpful hosts. In summary: Perfect in every way!

“Village within the town”
Reviewed March 29, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The Wharf house was all we expected. Very clean, well equipped,and warm.
Wouter and Leisbeth were on hand to welcome us, and took time to explain everything, as well as suggesting various restaurants in the area.
We had two small problems with the heating tripping out, but Wouter dealt with this extremely efficiently, and he made us feel as if this was OUR house, and that he was intruding. We felt that was a nice attitude to have.
Do NOT worry about the distance of this little island from the centre.
It's quite delightfull, and a step back in time.
You can catch the 18,21 or22 bus from Buiten Oranjestraat to the Central Station, and then onward with virtually any bus or tram to all of the attractions......when you pay once you can use the ticket for an hour;
One word about transport.It costs 5,90 per ticket each, so it's much better to buy a day pass at 7,50 each,and use it as many times as you wish. If you happen to be going regularly, buy the OV chipkaart, which is rechargeable.
Should you wish to walk,it will only take about 15 minutes to Dam Square.
All in all, a lovely place to stay, quiet enough to get a good nights sleep, and yet near enough to feel part of the City.

“Great place to stay.”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2014

This is a lovely well equipped apartment in a quiet older area within walking distance of many sites favored by visitors, shopping and a wide variety of restaurants.
The owner life next door and are very friendly and helpful, with day planning restaurant suggestions and arranging transport to and from the airport and around the city.
They provide a wonderful canal tour, and went out of their way to rent a wheelchair for us when my wife fell and broke her foot.
We have stayed in many wonderful places but this is by far the best and we have many wonderful memories.
