The bathroom from where you can look into the livingroom. Ofcourse you can shut the venetian blinds whenever you 're looking for some privacy when taking a bath.The apartement is very high, 4.5m. We sit in the window a lot when summer and have coffee there and read the paper. Or later in the day we enjoy a glass of wine there...

Our spacious apartment, situated in an old school building, has high ceilings, a lovely bathroom, two bedrooms, large windows and a very well equipped kitchen. The famous Vondelpark is around the corner, as are numerous bars, restaurants and markets.

The space

Our appartment is situated in an old school wich is build by the same architect that designed the Rijksmuseum and Central station in Amsterdam. It has beautifull details an was build in 1880. The appartment has four and a half meters high ceilings with the old ornaments still intact. When entering the building you still get the feeling of the old school it once was. You enter our appartment through the high cabinet that has a lot of art and crafts in it. Small lamps highlight each and every detail. Once two classrooms, now a spacious 'lofty' home. We broke down the wall that seprated the classrooms, so that an open space was created. In the middle we build steal beams with walls in between wich, on the ground floor, houses the large spacious bathroom with bath and shower. The toilet is also situated on the ground floor. Up the black wooden stairs you'll find two bedrooms, both with double beds. (The bed in the masterbedroom is 160cm wide, the one in teh second bedroom is 120cm wide) Also you'll find lot's of space in the wardrobe for your clothes.
We love to cook and we welcome you to use the kitchen. It's pretty well equiped and the stove has two ovens, a Japanese bakingplate and 5 gas burners. Our diningtable (well, we use it as our office too...) sits 6 persons. The living area has two big sofa's and the windows are surrounded by more cabinets. When you want to sit in the window-sill (we recomment you to do so!) just climb the couch and take a pillow with you. Instant happiness garantueed. We have a digital flatscreen, apple-tv, wifi and you’re free to use our bicycles. Our neighbourhood is very central, close to the Vondelpark, the big museums are a 15 minute walk away. Nearby we have numerous bars and restaurants (‘Golden Brown’ is or favourite and is just around the corner). When you feel like taking a boat through the canals, let us now. We’ll hook you up with friends that rent out there boat. They come with an experienced and friendly captain. In our neighbourhood, we have a lot of trams going to any location in the city.
We love our neighbourhood and respect our neighbours. We don’t aprecciate loud music, or other guests than yourselves in the appartment. Music shouldn’t be played after ten in the evening (well, not loud music, that is.). We think our appartment is very suitable for a family or two couples.

Pim, made us (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication was excellent. And they certainly have the best equipped kitchen I have ever had in a holiday apartment. It was a joy to cook there. A Really beautiful apartment in a great part of town. Tucked away from the centre but still only a stones throw away. Good local bars and restaurants. loads of useful tips from Pim. And the best Bath ever!

Hands down the best airbnb experience I've ever had. My family and I spent six weeks at Mirjam and Pim's apartment and fell in love with the neighborhood, Vondelpark, and the beautiful flat itself. It used to be a school and the unit, in particular, was once two classrooms with ~15' ceilings, which was renovated into a 2br loft. Pretty much the only thing cooler than the place itself were the hosts--we ended up hanging out w Mirjam and Pim whenever we had a chance. They are lovely, warm, and inspiring people. I really hope to see them again down the line.

We had a blast in Amsterdam and Pim's place was absolutely one of the main reasons. It is locating in one of the best neighborhoods in the city. Inside, decoration and the taste was amazing! Pim himself and his friend Sjoerd who welcomed us were very nice guys. I strongly recommend Pim's place to everyone, especially the ones who are going to visit amsterdam with a desire of experiencing the local life just minutes away from the touristic sights. As an Amsterdam addict I am going to stay in Pim's place again for sure.

When we travel, we like our privacy. Probably, so do you. When you rent our appartmenet, it's your appartment, we won't be there. So apart from check in, you won't see us. Unless offcourse, you need anything that requires our presence there. We do like to help everybody to enjoy our city, our country as much as possible. We know the hotspots, all the new restaurants and nice local bars. So any assistence needed to make your stay even better, we will gladly give!
