“Awesome in Amsterdam” We really enjoyed Michiel's vacation rental in Amsterdam. We visited with our 3 kids (11, 16 and 18) and the flat is set up with two bunk beds in one room, a second bedroom plus a master which was perfect for us. It is nicely furnished with an upscale modern kitchen and bathroom. As noted by others, the flat is an upper unit with steep stairs which we actually liked. It was in an authentic older building with high ceilings, original woodwork and big windows with lots of light during the short winter days (dark by 4:45pm) The roof top deck was also fun but we did not use it.
Amsterdam is full of bikes and we should have pre arranged the use Michiel's bikes. (There is also a bike store literally around the corner that charges 12 Euro a day but they only had 5 adult bikes and 1 childrens bike for rent in total. Plus, there was a lot interest in the bike store bikes because Vondel park is nearby.) It is a fun ride into (and around) the city centre from the apartment and many places to lock bikes up.
There is also a grocery store about half a block down the street. We usually had breakfast in and dinner at a local restaurant given our total trip was 16 days in Europe. There are many good restaurant choices within walking distance of the flat and in the city centre. (We found reviews on Trip Advisor very helpful.) On our last night, we especially enjoyed authentic Dutch food at The Pantry and it had super friendly service.
We totally recommend advanced reservations for the Van Gogh, Anne Frank Museum, bike rentals, boat rides and most restaurants. During the holidays, there were many, many tourists and if you did not book in advance there were long lines. For most museums kids are free or have a low fee if under 18.
We had a rental car and found street parking very close to the flat when we arrived and then moved our car to a parking lot nearby. It is very affordable if you park and then take public transport into the city. If you do not take public transport you do not qualify for the discount and it can be expensive. Street parking was free in Sundays and holidays.
We also used Uber to get into and out of the city centre. It was about $10 Euro one way from the flat. We were picked up by a newer black Mercedes sedan one trip and a newer black Mercedes van on another. The driver spoke great English. Given that we are a family of 5 the Uber van was a great option since many taxis only take 4 people.
We also drove out to see the Windmills in Zaanes Schans about a 30 minutes from the flat. It is touristy but very fun to see them! It is about $3 Euro per person to go inside each one but worth seeing-we had an excellent volunteer tour guide of the saw mill-Het Jonge Schaap.
Over all, it was a great visit!
We had a lovely time in this splendid accommodation. It was spotless clean and very well furnished. We were amazed with the generosity,beautiful food provided for breakfast with a very warm welcome. …
Better than any five star hotel
My husband, our 27 year old daughter and me stay for an extended weekend at this beautifully furnished apartment. Not only it was spotless clean, had a lovely patio and a designer bath also the fridge had been stocked with everything you need for breakfast, including fresh rasberries and organic eggs!
We had a very warm welcome and enjoyed every minute. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet, but there are a lot of restaurants (and supermarkets) in walking distance. It is a 30 min walk through the park into Amsterdam center too. We are looking forward to our next stay! …
Stylish Flat in good area
This really is a lovely flat in a quiet but convenient area. We are a family of 4 and the flat was perfect for us. The rooms are large with high ceilings and so there is a real feeling of space.
The flat is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. It felt like a real home from home.
It is in the "Old South" which is close to Vondelpark and within easy walking distance of Museum Square.
Traveling from the Airport is really easy, it is one stop on the train and then less than 10 minutes walk
Next time we are in Amsterdam (which is a great city) we will definately stay here. …
Boutique Apartment with amazing Roof Terrace
