Stylish apartment in a lovely trendy neighbourhood near the centre of Amsterdam. Owned by a Dutch writer who uses it as a writer's den. It comfortably fits two and you'll have your own private balcony to have your breakfast in the morning.
This fabulous apartment is on the top floor. The place is decked out with Turkish rugs, wooden floors, original artwork and has windows on all sides. On a sunny day you have the brightest apartment you can imagine, at night you can see the moon through the sky light, or from your balcony.
You'll have your own kitchen and bathroom, with a bath and a shower. There are lots of lovely bookshops, cafe's and shops around the corner and two steps down the street you find a beautiful square with a fountain and a great cafe on the corner. This is the area where lots of actors, writers, musicians live, and all this only a 15 minute tram ride away from the centre of Amsterdam.
I'm a Dutch children's book writer and own the whole house. I use this apartment to write my books and as a pied a terre when I am in town.
Check in after 14.00. Check out before 11:00, but you can leave your luggage and pick it up later. If no other guests are arriving right before or after you you can come in or stay any time you like.
Free wifi, cable tv, dishwasher, washing machine.
Interaction with guests
The front door gives access to two different apartments. Yours is on the top floor (two stairs up) and you have the whole apartment to yourself. I won't be around much as I divide my time between the other apartment and my house in the country, but you can reach me around the clock. I have friends/neighbours nearby who can help out if there's any problem.
Other things to note
There is a bath tub and a balcony with a great view.
Check in is at 2 pm, check out at 11. Out of season it's no problem to arrive earlier or to stay all day on the day of departure. In the summer I really need those three hours to clean the apartment, change sheets, and put some fresh flowers there. If you want to leave your luggage, that's always possible!
It's a non-smoking apartment, but there's a balcony for those who haven't quit yet. Please leave the cigarette butts in the trash can on the balcony.
