New, superb located in a lovely, vibrant, entrepeneural part of the city. East is hot and your place is just in it. Explore the hood on foot, or take my bike out! You have a small, but nice private studio. It's my house. I'm out for a few days.
You have a private apartment. I allways love that.
It's new, superb located in according to us locals such a lovely, vibrant, entrepeneural part of the city. East is hot and your place is just in it. Explore the hood on foot, or take my bikes to outdo your hike.
Newly renovated, kitchenette, washing machine, your own bathroom, balcony with tableset, hammock and green.
The neighbourhood is full of life, but the apartment is situated on the garden side, so quiet and peaceful nights after your long day in Amsterdam.
You will have access to your own little place in Amsterdam, including two vintage bikes to explore the city. Saves you money!
In my apartment you can grind your beans in my seventies coffee grinder, play some romantic or crazy records, watch a DVD on a rainy day, hang in the hammock on the balcony or read some of my Dutch or English books on urban design, architecture or fiction of the well-known writers.
To get here:
TRAIN: direct transfer from Schiphol Airport tot Muiderpoort Train Station is app. 25 mins.
From Muiderpoort to the apartment is a leisurely 7 mins. walk. Indulge your first Doner Sandwich and enjoy the surroundings while you're at it.
Train to Central Station: app. 6 mins.
Train to Amstel Station (subway): app. 4 mins.
TRAM: Two tramlines close by.
Line 14 takes you the buzzing city center in 20 mins. Almost free touristic scenic drive.
With one easy transer you'll get to all the musea at Museumsquare (Museumplein): Rijks Museum (Rembrandt), Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum (contemporary art). If you decide you stay on the tram, you'll get the next stop he nightlife with all the bars and shops around Leidse Plein.
SUBWAY: closest station is overground station Amstel Station. App. 2 mins. by train via Muiderpoort Station.
CAR: Park & Ride Zeeburg. Cheapcheapcheap, but REMEMBER: you have to use your public transport ticket in and from the city centre. Use 'Muiderpoort Station'. The best option.
Interaction with guests
I might be there to pick you up, but as you stay in my place when I am gone, I probably won't be there. If we're lucky we meet. I'm off for a few days..
So in that last case, I arrange for key-pick up and a thorough book of advise on where to go and what not to miss.
If I'm there I'll introduce and explain everything I can think of!
Other things to note
Yes! After using AIRBNB all the time myself, I now open up to host visitors myself!
If you read this, you will be one of The First Special Ones.
But, I have done everything I could to make the place fun and complete for you to give you a perfect stay in Amsterdam.
There are several, logical rules to the place.
* No smoking in the house. Sorry. Yeah, it's a bummer, but not so much for the following guests and myself. It stays crisp. There's a nice and covered balcony with several options to sit: a bench, a hammock, a table set or you can just enjoy your cigaret on two feet.
* No loud noise. Amsterdam is not so big and the sound carries quite far in the inner garden. Also the building has several apartments and I normally live there with my neighbours. So, please keep the music on a respectful level and party at designated clubs and bars. There are lots of them!
`* I'm a very considerate guy, so if anything gets broken or lost or damaged or sent to space, don't be afraid and let me know; we will work it out very pleasantly. I promise.
* Pointed out stuff in the kitchen is on my 'Fair Use Policy', like the coffee beans, the vinegar, the sugar. You know what I mean, the basics. You don't have to buy all that silly stuff for just a weekend.
* Sharing. All the stuff is usable at your own risk. A rain poncho, a hat, picknick boxes, a sarong. I mean, I have this perfect storm-proof umbrella that can really save your day.
* Bikes are essential in this city. It saves you heaps of time and tired feet. Lock the bike as instructed by my 20+ years experience to keep the risk of bike theft as low as possible.
* Last rule: enjoy my city! It's so lovely and has so many small and big secrets. You can go in every direction, for every style, for every age, for the experienced and the not so experienced. We Amsterdammers are tolerant, funny and very open people. You will feel home because we're pretty relaxed. And come again, because you're never finished exploring.
