Interaction with guests

I am happy to welcome you in my apartment, and inform you about the places to go in Amsterdam. During the week I will be working mostly, so I wont be home a lot. I try to welcome my guests personally because I like to know who is staying at the apartment. During the weekends I will be home more and have time to connect with my guests, have a coffee or breakfast together, or whatever spontanious meetings:)

Sebastian was difficult to get ahold of beforehand, due to other circumstances we later found out, but was very friendly and helpful with where to eat/ visit/ get around etc. the place was tidy, a little out of the way - 35 min walk to the central area - but would still recommend him and his apartment

Staying at Bastiaans place was so great! He was the perfect host, really welcoming, friendly and happy to give you suggestions of what to check out. The location was also awesome! It was pretty easy to get to from the airport and really easy to walk into central town. We will definitely stay here again if we ever come back and we recommend you do too :)

Bastiaan is very friendly and helpful. We had issues with our train with a large delay but he was able to work around it to get us our keys. The flat is clean and the bed was very good. The flat is also close to some of the main team lines and walking distance from the city. Overall we are very happy with our stay and would highly recommend staying with Bastiaan.

Me and my friend had a lovely stay in Bastiaan's flat in Amsterdam. All in all everything was as described and the photos of the room are very accurate. The description of how to get to the flat was very clear we didn't have any problems. When we arrived Bastiaan was waiting for us in the flat, he gave us a few tips where to go and what to do in town and answer to all of our questions. The only cons were that the room was tiny, but we didn't spend much time there anyway and beacause we were two girls when we asked for a second blanket he said that he doesn't have a spear one wich was a bit dissapointing. But other than that very pleasant stay.

The room is good for a short stay. It's in a good location, well connected with trams and buses and it's also possible to walk to city centre (about 20-30 min). The price is reasonable compared with other offers.

I am living in Amsterdam for 6 years now, though most of the winters I escape the city to travel the world. After an exctiting journey through Mexico this wint), I will be in Amsterdam for the rest of the year. I am really looking forward to host fellow travellers from all over the world this year, and hopefully I can provide an authentic Amsterdam experience.

I live in a really cool neighborhood, with lots of typical Amsterdam Architecture, local bars, close to the parks and walking distance from the major tourist destinations. If walking is not your thing you can also rent a bike around the corner or take one of the trams that leave in front of the apartment.

I wont be home a lot during the weeks, as I will be working in a closeby city, working on a permaculture/foodforest project. This means that during the week you will often have the apartment for yourself, or share it with 1 or 2 other guests as I have 2 bedrooms in the apartment. I love to work with plants and food, so in the weekends you will find me experimenting on the balcony and in the kitchen. Otherwise I will be playing guitar or reading a book, I have interesting variety of books in the living room, as you will see:) At the moment I am mostly interested in books about self-sustaining living, as I hope to move to a more rural place in the near future!
