“Lovely location, wonderful hosts and warmth of your own home”
Reviewed 3 June 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We reached De Groene late in the evening and Dianne's neighbor Jan showed us around the apartment. The place was extremely warm and welcoming even in the absence of its beautiful hostess. The small but cozy apartment has almost all the amenities one needs for a comfortable stay. Bathroom was well equipped with special touches--mildly fragrant organic shampoo and body wash helped us relax and rejuvenate after a long flight. Next day, to our surprise, towels got changed and trash was removed too.

Dianne even offered to help us with the laundry as there is no other coin laundry on the island.

She and her family went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and special. On a side note, we were fortunate to get Dianne's neighbor's studio apartment for our parents. Marjolein is yet another warm human being who lives right next door. Even if you have a large family, between the two homes, you can be accommodated comfortably.

My parents were celebrating their 50th Anniversary and we were celebrating our 20th. Both Dianne and Marjolein's families went out of their way to make our stay not only comfortable but totally festive. Add the tulip festival as a bonus to the entire mood set by these families.

In terms of amenities,we cooked basic breakfast and some noodles/pasta etc. while were were there. We were too tired to step out after a long day. Restaurants offering choices of sandwiches, Thai food, Chinese, Italian and Kabob were nearby (5 minute walk) but it was fun to cook meals as the nearby supermarket (also 5 mins) had many useful items (chopped veggies, marinated meats, fresh fruits, juices, sauces etc.) easily available. Dianne's kitchen was also fairly equipped and perfect for the short stay.

My 8 year old almost cried when saying good-bye to our hosts.

“All the comforts for you!”
Reviewed 4 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

What a great place!
So close to the center of Amsterdam and far enough away to be able to process your impressions in peace. Owners go for quality and sustainability.
The website gives a clear picture of how it is for real.

“Sweet and relaxing waterfront accommodations just minutes from the city center!”
Reviewed 17 October 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was a great way to visit Amsterdam and also have the feeling of total relaxation in the cozy and sweet Ijburg neighborhood. I was able to enjoy my coffee in the morning in a garden setting on a canal. You can even go for a swim if the weather is nice. It's just minutes to the city center by the tram line or a half-hour bike ride. Dianne and Roel were very helpful with everything for my stay. I look forward to visiting again1

We had fantastic 4 days here. A wonderful place and a wonderful host. Dianne and her husband made us feel welcome and answered all questions on time and gave some good suggestions on amsterdem and places to visit. Her place is excellent in terms of all facilities and location. Easily accessible from Central Amsterdam on the tram (no.26). Best thing about the Apartment was canal facing sitting area and open dinning room. We will definately come again. See you soon!
