The space

Charming Amsterdam! A beautiful city to discover. It's an old town en has a rich history; you'll find dutch culture, many exceptional places to see and events happening in town. Feel the dazzling vibe of Amsterdam!
I live for many years in the city and love to tell you about all the good places to visit. My apartment is in the north of town; an upcoming and creative part of Amsterdam, which has a fast connection to the city centre (10 minutes).

The apartment:
I offer a 70 mtr.2 clean, spacious, modern apartment. It's a cozy designed place with a beautiful living.
In the fully equipped kitchen you'll find everything to make yourself a nice meal if you're not eating out.
Seperate bedroom (double boxspring bed, size160-200) with bathroom, this has a big size shower.
Towels and nice fresh sheets.
Seperate toilet.
On request use of washer & dryer.
Free WiFi.

The neighborhood:
My house is located in the north of the city, near a park, close to the NDSM terrain. As a former shipyard this is a unique part of town where you can find nice restaurants and hangouts, shopping, art and great (music) events. You'll also find the Eye filmmuseum at this side of town.
By bus you'll be in 10 minutes in the city centre at Central Station. From here you'll get quickly to the Dam Square, Jordaan, Vondelpark, red light district and museum area.
Seen the urban city and wanna experience the country side of Amsterdam? Visit picturesque Volendam, Holysloot or for example Durgerdam, and refresh body & mind at the IJsselmeer.

Shopping centre Buikslotermeerplein is a 200 mtr walk from the apartment, there are many shops and supermarkets in the neighbourhood, open untill 21h.
There are some good places i can recommend for cheap and healthy breakfast or dinner (Thaifood, typical Dutch, Arabic, sushi, organic food, KFC, Chinese, etc).

Public Transport:
Next to my frontdoor you'll find the busstop; every 10 minutes bus 33 takes you in 10 minutes to the Central Station.
You can also get bus 32 or 34. Nightbus number 361 too stops in front of the house.
Another way is to explore the city by bike, feel free to use mine for a nice ride to one of the 5 ferry's. The ferry's are all free and cross the river IJ all day & night to get you into town or back 24/7. For more bikes, there's a bike rental for €13,- a day, about 5 minutes from the apartment.
You can get to all parts of the city easily.
If you travel by plane, it's easy to come by train to the Central Station, then take bus 33 (stop at Halte Bakkerswaal).

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to mail me.

I can't say enough about our positive experience at Mirjam's! From the moment we booked she went above and beyond to help us feel prepared for our trip, and answer any questions that came up. When we arrived & accidentally took the wrong transit, she even came to pick us up! Her home is beautiful, clean, well-equipped and cozy - everything you need for a comfortable home away from home. I fell in love with the design of her apartment (and her coffee machine ;)). Mirjam also takes time to get to know you & make suggestions based on your travel interests. We loved exploring Amsterdam & then escaping to her quieter neighbourhood (transit is very easy from her place with a bus stop right outside the door). I could go on and on .. But the main message is if you're looking for beautiful, unique, convenient accommodations with a built-in tour guide (& new friend!) .. Mirjam is your person!

Staying in Mirjam's flat was one of the best Airbnb experiences we've had. She welcomed us with coffee and tea, got to know us a bit, and recommended places in Amsterdam she thought we would like. She showed us around and made us feel so welcome and at home. Mirjam's place is just as described and pictured. It was extremely clean and comfortable. We had great weather and enjoyed eating breakfast on the balcony. Not many people think to stay in the North, thinking it's to far away, but we loved the location. It's a short bus ride (stop right outside the building) to anywhere you want. The transit system is super easy to use. You could also take a ferry which has a great view. We loved having dinner at Plekk, a place we'd never gone if we hadn't been in the North. The apartment building was extremely secure and safe and vey quiet. There's also a grocery store one stop up, about 200 meters. When we were checking out I accidentally left my phone, passport, and money; pretty much my life! Mirjam dropped everything and rushed from work to let us back in. I can't say enough good things about her and her home. We would plan our next trip around her availability. We felt like we didn't just find a great host, we found a new friend.

"We would love to come and stay again!" It was last sentence in my review last year, when we first time visited Amsterdam and Mirjam's place. And we came again! When we decided to visit Amsterdam again, there was no doubt about accommodation. Mirjam's place is really perfect for a quiet stay in Amsterdam, far enough from the central craziness but very close to everything. Mirjam is very kind, helpfull and master of decorating interiors! Also thanks to her friend Frans de Wilde. He is great artist and very friendly and funny guy! :) Conclusion is clear: fantastic place for unforgettable vacation! :)

My mum and me had a great time in Mirjams place. She was so helpful and sweet, made a great list with a lot of tips and we felt very welcomed at our stay. The apartment is not in the Central of Amsterdam bur with the bus its a short trip (10-15 min) to the main area. The flat looks even more beautiful in live as on the picture, the walls are in a dark, warm color and the whole atmosphere is very charming and cosy. We were very happy to choose this apartment.

Great experience, actually, best experience on airbnb so far. We felt very welcome and taken care of. Mirjam really does her best and this is reflected in all details. Good to know: the walls are now painted in dark chocolate colour, which makes it even cosier than on the pictures.

We spent 4 wonderful days of April in Amsterdam.We were so happy, it's very beautiful, romantic and stylish flat. All was clear and comfortable. Perfect place for relaxing after visiting of city. Its pretty close to central, just 15 min by bus, which going every 6 min. If you want to walk a little, you can go 30 min till ship-station and across by ship Lake and get also to center absolutely for free. Mirjam is so nice and polite person. She was so friendly and met us so kindly and pleasantly, she showed us everything that we need for comfortable living. We would love to back and stay there again. Thanks a lot!

We are a young couple, we was in Amsterdam 3 days and the apartment was fabulous. All was very clean and beautiful, is very close to the supermarket, and the communication with the city centre was very easy and fast with bus. It's a perfect place to rest after a day in Amsterdam, and it's possible go from city centre to take a break, the kitchen it's very equipped. The hostess, Mirjam, it's very nice and had everything ready for our arrival. We are very happy with choosing this apartment.

WORK: Interior design projectmanager

ABOUT ME: Hi, I'm your host, Mirjam. As a guest I started to use airbnb about two years ago in 2013. It was such a good experience for me that I decided to start renting my own apartment at airbnb beacuse i'm travelling on a regular basis for my job.
I offer a modern cosy apartment near the centre of Amsterdam. A relative new and upcoming part of town at the IJ river, near a park, station, fast 10 minute connection to the city with many bus- and tram options. I live in a nice, modern building. In daily life I work as a manager on interior design projects. I like to work with creative people and the artists of craftsmanship. As I lived many years in the city now, I like to share the nice spots (not only touristic!) in Amsterdam. We have a rich history, beautiful canals (have a boattrip!) with the characteristic houses from the 17th century. But also many modern and special shops like in the 9 Streets, the area which the city of Amsterdam is built on. Many restaurants and cafès... Musea, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, the Anne Frank House. The new Eye filmmuseum. So much to see & things to experience!
