You can also use the shared living room on the first floor, shared toilets (first and second floor) and kitchen (first floor) with the owners of the house. My son Dion, Evan and I are very easy going persons, so we can have small chats or if you want to have your privacy, it's all fine with us. You can buy your own food and store it in the fridge. You may also use the microwave, toaster, the stove to make some small cookings (large cookings like dinner is not allowed). But as I have said, I'm a very easy going person, so if you are thirsty or hungry, please have some drinks from the fridge or bread with sandwich filling as I do not mind.
Interaction with guests
I am a flight attendant for KLM and so sometimes I will be abroad but there is always someone here. My sons Dion or Evan are also fine hosts. Don't hesitate to contact me Dion or Evan during your stay. You will find your citymap of Amsterdam and other brochures in your private room. I can give you details on restaurants, bars, clubs, sightseeing highlights and anything else you'd like to know about Amsterdam. Hope you have a great and pleasant time here with us and feel like a local.
Other things to note
Amsterdam is the perfect city to explore by bike. Cycling is the most economical, sustainable and fun way to explore the city with its beautiful canals, parks, squars and countless lights. Amsterdam is famous for its good and safe network of bicycle tracks. You can also bike along lovely landscapes dotted with windmills outside Amsterdam. In Amsterdam you can find a windmill near my accomodation, in the neighbourhood of the Dappermarket. At Waterloopplein (Waterloop Square) near the Flea Market you can rent a bike at Mac Bikes (on the route of tram 9). You also can rent bikes at Amstelstation or Muiderpoort station, both are in the vicinity of my apartment. You can explore Amsterdam on your own or Mac Bikes offers a daily Amsterdam City Bike tour, led by a guide who takes you along the best sites in Amsterdam.

No shoes in the house.
Always lock the main entrance door with the key. Please respect/mind the neighbours. No pets. Making omelette or something small for breakfast is ok (but no large cooking).
Check-in is flexible/check-out is 12.00 noon (for cleaning the room). We always can confer on this matter if a guest is still here and another has to check-in, to drop off your bags and leave them here in stock. But I think this will be no problem on both the check-in and check-out time of the incoming and outgoing guests. You can always leave your bags/luggage here in stock. Pick-up time doesn't matter.

My name is Enith. I am working as a cabin attendant for almost 15 years now. Besides loving my job in the cabin, meeting people from all walks of life and diverse backgrounds, I enjoy adventurous trips during my layovers. I have to say, I am living my dream! :)
The reason I decided to start this little bed 'n breakfast is that I love to meet people from all over the world. In the sky I serve all kinds of people, so its my nature to take care and guide. I would love to make your stay as comfortable as possible and feel like a local.
Hope to see you soon!
