About listing

Stylish and quiet apartment in one of Amsterdams nicest neighbourhoods. Enjoy a village-like atmosphere right in the city center. A perfect and quiet retreat after a busy day of sightseeing. Public transport, supermarket, restaurants, bars and (organic) market at walking distance. The bright and sunny canal side apartment consists of a spacious living room, a bedroom with a luxurious king size bed, a bathroom and a well equipped kitchenette with state-of-the-art DeLonghi whole-bean coffee machine. The sofa couch in the living room can easily be converted into a second bed for two persons. The apartment is lovely furnished and includes a high-spec smart TV with a full-host of channels, wireless Sennheiser headphones, high-speed WiFi and a whole-bean DeLonghi espresso machine. The neighborhood Western Isles (Westelijke Eilanden) is like a village on the edge of the city centre. Fourhundred years ago it was Amsterdam’s first expansion. It’s a quiet neighborhood consisting of canals and reconverted warehouses. As Lonely Planet puts it: "The artistic and the creative soul of the city is concealed in the charming Western Islands. This small archipelago bathes in amazing quietness, only nudged from its slumber by bobbing houseboats and bikes rattling across the wooden bridges. Among the former grain, herring and tobacco warehouses, intrepid travellers will now find artists’ studios creating everything from film and music to painting and designer furniture". The Haarlemmerplein with a supermarket and organic market on Wednesdays is only 150 meters away. The famous shopping street Haarlemmerdijk is a 200 meter walk, the cozy Jordaan with its bars and restaurants 500 meter, the Central Station is a 15 minute walk or short bus ride away. The Anne Frank House is 1,5 km and Dam Square 2 km away. See my guide at for more nice places at walking distance from the apartment. Bus and tram stop 'Haarlemmerplein' at 150 meter. Taxi from Schiphol Airport 20 minutes, € 45. I accept rentals > 2 persons only in case of families (parents with children).

    appartement calme et vraiment agrable, proche du centre. Bravo 16 August 2017 - 18:37:00

    This apartment was very easy to get to from Central Station, and a nearby grocery store provided all of our breakfast needs. The location was quiet, but also gave us quick access to public transit (tram and bus), or it was a short walk to many tourist attractions. Sebastian was very helpful when we first arrived. We had an excellent time in Amsterdam! 02 August 2017 - 19:19:00

    The location is great for those who want to be close enough to walk to most of the attractions, but not so close to the hustle and bustle of the nights in Amsterdam. Great, friendly welcome by a friend of Sebastian. Sebastian was very quick to respond to all of our questions prior to and during our stay. Apartment was very clean and we were provided with wondeeful towels. Coffee machine was a definite bonus! Only complaint may be that it was quite warm in the apartment, but no one should use that as a deterrant. Highly recommend! Thanks Sebastian and Connie! 01 August 2017 - 08:33:00
  4. Owner/manager is excellent. Apartment is convenient to Amsterdam centrum yet situated in a quiet neighborhood. Facilities are outstanding. Could not be better. 15 June 2017 - 21:15:00

    The apartment was just what we required, quiet, peaceful and great location beside one of the many canals. It had everything we needed and was spotlessly clean. Location was excellent with supermarket and shopping street nearby. A short walk took us into central Amsterdam and the Jordaan area with its many shops and cafes. Close to the apartment we came across a very good restaurant Le Tavenu. Thank you to Lies who welcomed us on our first day and to Sebastian who was so helpful throughout and prior to our stay. 12 July 2016 - 14:31:00

    Very comfortable and cozy apartment far enough away from the Centraal area to be quiet yet close enough to be within walking distance of everything. 11 September 2017 - 14:14:00

    We loved every minute of our stay in the apartment in Amsterdam. The apartment was immaculate, well stocked, spacious, and conveniently located for travel by foot, tram, or bus. There are many restaurants in the area, and Sebastian was the consummate host. We've stayed in and have been happy with a number of VRBO's in Europe, but Sebastian,'s apartment is definitely the best one yet. 21 July 2017 - 13:11:00

    This was a modern, comfortable apartment with all the amenities and a charming neighborhood as well! We would stay again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Sebastian, for providing an excellent spot for our vacation! 06 July 2017 - 17:45:00

    The property was exactly as summarized on HomeAway, it was in a great location where everything was walkable and Sebastian was great! He checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed during our stay and answered any questions we had. Next time I visit Amsterdam I will definitely be staying at Sebastians HomeAway! 24 September 2017 - 16:00:00

    We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Amsterdam. The apartment was spacious, clean and well appointed. We were close to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping....yet just far enough outside the city centre that our nights were peaceful and quiet. We cannot say enough good about Sebastian our host. He went above and beyond to ensure we were well taken care of! Thank you Sebastian for a wonderful stay in Amsterdam!!! 19 October 2017 - 07:37:00

    This was our first experience with VRBO and we were very pleased with the location. It was easy for myself and my wife to walk around and get familiar with Jordan Area... which is a great area of Amsterdam for its nice shops and great restruants. If you want the touristy areas it is also within walking distance ( Dam Square-Red Light District). Our brand new renovated modern ground level one bedroom apartment was top notch with everything you need for your stay including a comfy king size bed!. Also the nicely decorated xmas tree offered that festive touch. Our host Sebastian was extremely helpful with his list of great restaurant and pub referrals. ( which we took in ) Our stay here was an amazing experience and hope to be back here again one day Highly recommend this property! 29 December 2015 - 19:05:23

    This was an excellent apartment both clean and modern and comfortable. Location is a convenient 20 minute walk to city center and other attractions. Sebastian was a very gracious host. When one of us became ill he made himself available and was very helpful. Would recommend to anyone. 10 April 2016 - 15:06:19

    We just arrived home from our stay at Sebastian's lovely apartment. It was beautifully decorated and convenient for all sightseeing. Do yourself a favor while visiting Amsterdam and stay here!! Thank you for the wonderful memories. 06 May 2016 - 21:27:06

    This was my wife and my first time in Amsterdam and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. The apartment was as good, or better than shown on the site. It is facing one of the canals in a quiet neighborhood and walking distance to everything. I cannot express how helpful and accommodating Sebastian is and he lives in the same complex, if you ever need any help. Sebastian believes in the extra touches such as a welcoming bottle of wine, a high end coffee maker and being available if needed. We have rented many apartments and homes through VRBO/Homeaway and would highly recommend this unit 05 October 2016 - 01:49:00

    We arrived to Amsterdam from Schipol airport and walked to the apartment. It was an easy walk, approximately 15 minutes, from the Central train station. The apartment was in a perfect location. We arrived early and were met by Sebastian, who was very kind and gave us an overview of the apartment. On our first and second days in Amsterdam, it snowed, not just a little bit, but enough to shut down the city. We walked everywhere and came home in the evening to a cozy and warm apartment. The best part of the location is the fact that you are very close to the center of the city, but far enough to not be impacted by the noise of the tourists. As I mentioned, we walked everywhere. There was no location that was too far, (Note: we are both in our mid/late 50s). At night, there were plenty of great restaurants and small bars/pubs nearby. We never walked more than five minutes to a restaurant. Several markets nearby for food. The bed was comfortable, the shower was great. The Delonghi coffee maker was outstanding! We highly recommend that you stay here, as we plan to do so when we return. Sebastian is great, very accessible and accommodating. This was definitely one of our best vacations! 16 December 2017 - 18:58:00

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sebastians apartment and would recommend his apartment. First, the reservation process was smooth. We received prompt responses to our initial query as well as prompt responses to a few questions we had before our visit. On the day of our arrival, we were early. Sebastian met us at the apartment early so we could drop off our bags. He provided us with a local map and information regarding the local area. We did a little exploring and returned a few hours later to check in. At check in, Sebastian had a very nice welcome gift of a bottle of wine and stroop waffles. He also made available two OV chip cards. The chip cards are extremely handy for using the buses and trams (saves you both time and money). There is a bus/tram stop just a few minutes walk from the apartment. The OV cards and nearby stop made getting around very easy and convenient. The nearby supermarket has a self serve machine to add value to the OV cards but it was out of order the day we checked in. Down the street about a block from the market is a Primera where you can add value. They actually will add the value for you and you can use cash. The pictures of the apartment are accurate. The apartment was nicely furnished and comfortable. The coffee maker was amazing. You cant beat the location. It is a very quiet neighborhood, yet you are near transportation, markets, dining, shopping, and transportation. Sebastian provides a list of local shopping and dining establishments. We visited a couple of the local dining establishments in the neighborhood and we were thoroughly satisfied. Sebastian also helped us out at the last minute when we needed a document printed. We certainly appreciated his assistance. After we checked out our security deposit was quickly refunded. We had a great host, a comfortable apartment, and outstanding location, which made our visit to Amsterdam that much more enjoyable. Thanks Sebastian! 20 October 2017 - 22:27:00

    Look no further, this is the perfect apartment with all the amenities you will need!! Sebastian is a thoughtful and accommodating host. The apartment is beautiful, exactly as represented in the photos. It is quite spacious, clean and in a great location, within walking distance to everything. Our stay was just wonderful, only wish it was longer!! Every communication with Sebastian was detailed and thorough. I cannot say enough good things about our time in Amsterdam. Looking forward to visiting this great city again soon. 05 September 2017 - 11:41:00

    We loved this apartment. It was immaculate and well-appointed. The king sized bed was very comfortable and the sofa in the living room that converted to a bed was also comfortable. The espresso machine was certainly an added bonus. We were greeted by Sebastian who welcomed us with a bottle of wine and stoop waffles which was a nice treat after our long journey from Canada. The apartment is within easy walking distance of Centraal Station (about 15 minutes) as well as shops and many restaurants. There is a grocery store, drugstore and lovely cheese, nuts and chocolate store in a square approximately two blocks away. We would not hesitate to stay here again if we returned to Amsterdam. Thank you Sebastian for everything you did to make our stay in Amsterdam special and for also arranging a taxi to the airport for us. 01 May 2017 - 08:35:00

    We spent four nights, including New Year's Eve, at Sebastian's apartment and had a wonderful time. The apartment has everything you need. My two teenage daughters slept on the modular couch that comes together to form two single beds and my husband and I slept in the bedroom. The apartment is close to the wonderful shops and restaurants on Haarlemmdijk and is close enough to Anne Frank house walk. There is also a taxi rank nearby - a bonus on rainy days. The only problem we had was with spotty WiFi. We solved it by rebooting the box but didn't think about that until the second day. After that, it worked very well. It was rainy on New Year's Eve so we stayed in, which was a great decision. The apt. building sits on a canal and we were surrounded by fireworks. There is a tradition in the Netherlands of sending up your own fireworks and that was happening all around us. We could even see the govt. sponsored fireworks. The fireworks lasted well over an hour. It was such a treat. Sebastian also leaves behind lots of information to help guide you. Thanks, Sebastian, for your hospitality. 04 January 2018 - 14:59:00
