“Brilliant Apartment, Great Owner and Good Location”
Reviewed 15 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Upon arriving at Centraal Station, Afina was prompt to meet us at an easy-to-find location within the station. She then accompanied us to the apartment via ferry, explaining where all the local amenities are, and taking us back via a specific route so we could easily see where the shops were. Afina was a great introduction to Amsterdam and was more than happy to help with any information we needed to make our stay even better. I cannot praise Afina enough for the greeting and information provided.

The location of the property is nice - it is close enough to the city centre for travel to be easy, and far enough out to be incredibly peaceful at night. The FREE ferry from the suburb to Centraal is great and can be reached within 10 or 15 minutes from the apartment. The bus service is also incredibly useful, running between Centraal and a bus stop 30 seconds from the apartment.

The apartment itself is actually much bigger than it appears in the photos - all 3 of us were shocked to see how large it is. There are two toilets in the apartment, along with both a shower and a bath. The shower is good but none of us used the bath although it seemed easily large enough. All the kitchen goods are working, providing the tools needed for a fry up, along with the convenience of a dish washer as well. There really is nothing negative to say about the apartment. Vondle is a lovely short haired cat, but also very quiet and does not intrude.

All in all, the apartment is perfect for those after a trip to Amsterdam in a peaceful location where the city centre can still be easily accessed!

We really enjoyed staying here. Afina was nice, very accommodating and was great at keeping in touch... she had all the information we needed and more! It was our daughter's birthday and our anniversary and she even had a small gift for each of us. It was nice staying in this quiet area of the city, the town center was easily accessible from the ferry or bus. And her sweet little cat, Vondel, was a great host. ;)

“Great apartment in a quiet area”

My friend and I spent a week in Afina's apartment which is as it looks in the photographs, well equipped, clean and in a lovely quiet area. It was so nice to return to after a hard day sightseeing in Amsterdam - peaceful and relaxing away from the crowds. Afina kindly left a welcome basket with provisions which was much appreciated, especially as we did not know where to find shops when we arrived . Also she spent time giving us advice and information and has a folder containing a lot of useful information which helped us decide on places of interest to visit. The free ferry from the NDSM wharf gets you to Amsterdam Central in around 12 minutes. We thought this was a great apartment and would not hesitate to recommend staying here.

“Lovely apartment, highly recommended !”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I stayed in this apartment with 2 friends for a week in December over the new year and we all found the apartment perfect for our stay. We had more than enough room for the 3 of us and the apartment had everything we needed ! The apartment is a good distance away from amsterdam centraal (about a 15 minute walk to the ferry port and 15 minutes on the ferry OR a 20 minute bus journey) the neighbourhood is lovely and quiet with some local shops. The owner of the apartment, Afina, was very lovely and was a great help in the weeks leading up to our stay. During our stay Afina's son Bart was such a good help to us, much appreciated ! Highly recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking to stay in amsterdam in a quiet area but which is also in easy reach of the centre and other places :) !
