Ted's apartment was perfect and is ideally situated for exploring Amsterdam. It is thoughtfully designed and has a great view of Prinsengracht and the surrounding architecture. Apartments Unlimited was welcoming, communicative, and provided great suggestions for our stay. We definitely recommend our host and his management agency to anyone considering a trip to Amsterdam.

This was a great, fun, cozy place for us to call home during our first stay in Amsterdam. It was super close to public transportation (steps away), it was very clean, and it felt very safe. There's a camera in the hallway and a heavy duty door to the building, both features that we appreciated. The building is very posh but the flat itself is nicely designed without being over the top. We were offered wine upon arrival and a great run down of what to do and where to go around town. There's a lovely fireplace that we took advantage of and relaxing shower with dual shower heads. Overall, we had a very comfortable and fun experience!

This apartment is an amazing location and is very clean and tastefully designed. The canal view cannot be beat and the fireplace was a great touch. The communication with the owners was easy, and they were very gracious in letting us check-in early after our overnight flight from the west coast of the US. The welcome drinks were also nice. The coffee maker, though, could use an upgrade... The apartment was smaller than we expected, though that was probably our own misjudgment of the photos. We were two people on a three week trip to locations with very varied climates, so needless to say, had two rather sizeable suitcases. It was hard to find room for one, let alone two. The apartment overlooked other details I would expect given the price--such as a place to hang our dripping raincoats. We also had an issue where water pipes running alongside the bed were putting a ton of heat out and the upper level was really hot but somehow the AC stopped working and the manual wasn't where the house guide book said it was... so we were pretty hot one night, but they fixed the AC the next day. Overall a positive experience in a fabulous location.

We loved our stay here! There isn't a lot of space, but it was as expected based on the description and pictures. The bed was very comfortable, and we appreciated having several lighting options downstairs, including dimmable lights so we could safely walk down the stairs in the middle of the night if needed. The location was perfect - Very close to a tram station which we used several times during our stay. The bathroom was nice and roomy, including a large walk-in shower. We appreciated having a TV in the main room to watch the news in the morning. And one of the best things was the coffee! so delicious.

Erwin's apartment is wonderful. My partner and I had the most wonderful stay and it is close to restaurants, bars, local attractions and shops - whatever your interest. Be wary of the steep stairs if that is a concern for you. Thanks again Erwin!

This is one of the most beautiful apartments in the most amazing of locations and with absolutely everything you could ever want or need catered for. Amazing hosts who were SO kind, caring and considerate. Excellent communication in every respect and just a dream stay from start to finish. I cannot speak highly enough of the apartment or the hosts - both equally incredible.

Great place in a great location. And for you summer visitors, the AC keeps the place like a meat locker, even though we kept turning it down.

We rent out 2 beautiful guest houses in Amsterdam on the top floor with wide view over the Prinsengracht. Me and my partner live on the ground floor and we use the first and second floor for ourselves as well. We have a nice and friendly dog (Rhodesian ridgeback ) .

We have our own business and work at home so we can easily host guests that come in any time of the day.

I used to live with my partner on Gran Canaria for 7 years but we moved back to Amsterdam 10 years ago. As a singer in the opera choir of Las Palmas I learned some Spanish and became to see Playa del Ingles as our second home. We still have our house there and also many friends we became to know throughout the years. One of them, Carmelo, is helping us with the hosting on Gran Canaria to show you around and hand over the keys.

May you have any questions, just please send us a note and we'll be happy to assist you.
