The apartment is charming and the location is excellent. Couldn't ask for a better location in Central Amsterdam.

“Great apartment for exploring Amsterdam”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

The Canal view apartment is a light and airy first floor one bedroom apartment located in a seventeenth century house in the Amsterdam Canal District. It looks just like the photos on the web site so there are no surprises. We really liked the wonderful view of the canal from the windows.

The apartment is in a perfect location to walk to many of the major Amsterdam sights. There are shops and restaurants close by. The Centraal station is a 10 minute walk away, so it’s easy to reach from the airport.

The apartment is clean and well maintained in a secure building. Before we arrived the owner provided answers to all our questions and he provided a lot of very useful information in the apartment for the first time visitor. All minor issues were quickly and effectively dealt with.

“A wonderful calm space in the city”

We have stayed in hotels and hostels in Amsterdam previously but this was the first time we had our own apartment. It was easy to find, within 5-10 minutes walk from Centraal station. We arrived a couple of hours too early to check in, but Lisa was available to let us in so we could drop off our luggage straight away. We walked up to Haarlemmerstraat, just 1 minute away, and had a wonderful lunch at Abinish (try the chocolate tart, you won't regret it). When we returned to the apartment Lisa gave us a warm welcome and a very good tour of the facilities. Everything was clearly explained in the house information folder, which was one of the best I've seen, full of suggestions for places to visit. Maarten and Lisa had left us a bottle of wine and some cheese biscuits, which was very kind.
The apartment was furnished to a very high standard; modern, but with some vintage charm too. Fresh flowers made it homely, and the view of the canal and the houses opposite was fantastic. It was very cold when we visited (February) so we had one day where we stayed in and watched the snow fall outside the window. Heaven!
The kitchen was very well equipped and we found everything we needed. I was pleased that there were recycling bins and a compost bin. The bed was very comfortable, and the sleeping area was dark enough at night. There was plenty of storage space. There was an iron and ironing board; a small travel hairdryer was provided.
All areas were spotlessly clean. The shower pressure was good and the temperature was consistent. The room temperature was easy to control (once we'd mastered the electronic thermostat dial - tip: rotate the dial with your thumb from underneath, with slight upward pressure if needed to help it engage).
The location of the apartment couldn't be bettered. There were two decent sized supermarkets very near by, and plenty of smaller shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. Amsterdam is a city for walking or cycling, and being right by the canal made navigation very easy, but there were also tram and bus stops nearby for longer distances. The proximity of the railway station was great for days out. Of the places recommended by Maarten and Lisa, we tried Kanjil & de Tijger for Indonesian food (amazing) and Winkel 43 for a quick supper (great food and service).
All in all we had a fantastic week at Canal View Apartment and would highly recommend it to anyone. Thanks for everything Maarten and Lisa!

Liked best: The location and the feel of the apartment - cosy and calm
Liked least: Medicine cabinet over sink is a little too big; it was a bit tricky to use the sink without hitting your head. A trivial issue.

“A superb apartment and location”
Reviewed 25 October 2015 for a stay in October 2014

We were among the early tenants, staying 14 days a year ago. Maarten was most hospitable, ensuring our comfort and helping us to find and select ballet and classical music recitals, and suggesting galleries as well as museums and day trips. Stylishly renovated, the apartment overlooks the picturesque Brouwersgracht Canal, is handy to local shops and restaurants, and just a short walk to Centraale Station and the city transport hub. Canal Cruise boats glide by frequently adding to canal views. Although the apartment has space for two more people, access to the bathroom is via the main bedroom space. Older travellers able to negotiate two flights of stairs would enjoy this location. We valued Maarten's helpful advice and would definitely return to stay. A happy, memorable sojourn for us.
