Other things to note

Getting in by car? Check the internet. Parking in the city of Amsterdam equals spending a lot of money. Park your car at Schiphol Airport Long parking or one of the Park and Ride carparks at the outskirts of the city, and travel to the appartment by train,tram or taxi! Or bring your baggage to the apartment and then take your car to a long parking spot. Parking fees in the city are around 30,00 euro’s a day. You can park your car in the street – 3 euro per hour or 20 euro per day.

Public transport and smart card (OV-chipkaart)
It's possible to use an OV-chipkaart on the train, but you must first request activation of this service and then add sufficient credit. Most visitors will find it more convenient to purchase tickets at the station from one of the ticket machines or ticket counters. You can also buy tickets on the NS website.

The location worked well for us and Barbara gave us clear directions which helped greatly. She also took time to point out routes into the city centre.

We felt very comfortable in Barbaras apartment. It`s a cosy place. Nice and clean. Communication was easy. Barbara left some breakfast basics for us and explained the area on the map. We enjoyed very much the charming neighborhood, it´s lovely, and not so many tourists. You can hire bikes nearby or take the tram to go to the city center. We recommend! thanks Barbara

Barbara met us at the door and is easy going. She had the basics for breakfast ready for us. A plus when arriving late in the evening. It is a good area and quiet at night which is important to us for sleeping. The beds are comfortable. Renting a bike is no problem and great for transportation in Amsterdam.

The apartment was great for our stay in Amsterdam, clean, comfortable, quiet, warm and very well equipped. It is in a good location outside of the centre of city, but easy to access via public transport if required or on foot too. Barbara was very easy to communicate with and replied promptly to any queries. Recommended.

Barbara was wonderful. She is quick to respond to text messages and emails, her place is so beautiful and peaceful.. Close to a few really great bars (literally, just walk a block and you're at Zurich, it's great) and public transportation to city center is a total breeze. Clean, well kept, great owner (such a sweet person), good price, you can't go wrong.

Not much to say, because everything or almost everything was very good. The apartment is quite a lot nicer than it looks in the photos. It is pleasent and comfortable to be in. The shower and shower room are *excellent*. The bed is *lovely*. The kitchen has a gas cooker, which is the best for cooking on. The heating for me is okay; I began in late November as cold days arrived to notice that it was colder than I would have liked. However, I feel the cold much more than average, so likely enough for all or almost all, it's actually normal. As with all or almost all AirBnBs when a place is rented out while the owner is away, and so has all of his or her stuff still there, it's crowded for another - not much hanger space, the kitchen cupboards are quite well occupied already, etc. Not a big deal. Internet access was perfect to begin with but in the last two weeks or so became a bit strange - the router would complain (and loose connection) if a sustained download occurred. It may have been the ISP rate-capping. It would come back after rebooting the router, sometimes two or three times being necessary. Normal use never caused this to happen. Barbara is lovely. We didn't meet, she was in China, but we exchange quite a few emails. I met with either her boyfriend (who lives locally) or when arriving and departing, with one or two friends of hers, who were helping out. I had trouble initially getting the gas fire started, the ignition was difficult, Lex - the boyfriend - came over promptly and sorted it out. The location is reasonable - good for somewhere which is a little bit out of the way. There's a tram stop three or four minutes walk away which will take you into the center in about 15 minutes. Mercatorplein (three or four minutes walk) has a van der Broek supermarket and a little bit further away there a big (by Dutch standards) Albert Heijn, so it's about as good as it gets, supermarket-wise, as you can get in Holland. For Brits, there is a tiny Marks and Spencers in Amsterdam, but it's difficult to get to. The tram wil take you to Dam, then you have to walk down to the bottom of Kalverstraat, shop, and walk back up to the Dam. Fully recommended - the minor issues described above are not significant and it's a lovely place to be in, together with an excellent host. I would stay here again.
