“never before had such a wonderful and warm welcoming experience”
Reviewed 14 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We called Gijsje to inquire about the apartment after many attempts with other apartments, and straight away we knew that we have reached the right place, and felt confident that we are in very good hands- we just didn't know how much this was true. From that call and the mails that followed, to which we got very patient answers to all our questions, through taking care of our transporation from the airport to the apartment, then meeting Gijsje and Chan who welcomed us so warmly, to the hearty breakfasts that kept us going all day long, the comfortable apartment, the endless generousity- and we can keep going on, without exaggerating- untill we left five days later- there were endless kind gestures that made our stay such a pleasant one.
We came back home- a very happy family who had a great time in Amsterdam- much of it thanks to Gijsje and Chan. Thank You!

“AMAZING and Wonderful Expirience !!”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I never imagined that hosts can be so hospitable and gracious. Chan and Gijsje are the nicest people you can meet and they made sure we will have the best time in Amsterdam.
They pointed out the best places to go , arranged for tickets ( with 50% discount !) to go to museums .
Breakfast in the morning was a great experience every morning, fresh bread and croissants, different types of cheese and cold meat . Freshly squeezed orange juice just to name a few things we had on the table each morning, and what we couldn't eat in the morning we could have for later on .. Now that's what I call superb service.

I can go on and on gushing about how wonderful it all was , but seriously if you want to enjoy Amsterdam to the fullest , stay in a wonderful place and enjoy a superb hosts , this is the place to go !

“Fantastic hosts & great value for a short weekend trip in Amsterdam”
Reviewed 26 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

6 adult members of my family spent a weekend recently in Amsterdam. Our hosts Chan & Gijsje could not have been nicer or more helpful. Prior to booking Gijsje provided a lot of helpful information and advice for our trip. The apartment was very comfortable with lovely views of the Herengracht canal and was quite central. The breakfasts were delicious with a wide variety of choices. There was more than enough for lunch also. In addition Gijsje provided discount tickets to all the museums. This not only provided a big reduction in price but also enabled us to fasttrack the queues which was really fantastic when we had such a short time in Amsterdam. We cannot say enough about how helpful Chan & Gijsje are - they really did whatever they could to make our trip memorable. We would definitely recommend this accommodation for anyone visiting Amsterdam and hope to come back here again some day.

“Amazing stay in Amsterdam thanks to the fantastic help and advice from owners”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who would like to make the most of a trip to Amsterdam. We stayed for the weekend and Chan and his partner were so helpful and generous with their time to try to ensure we got the most out of our short stay. The breakfast was amazing so much food and so fresh We were six adults from one family and we all agree if we were going back to Amsterdam we would only ever stay here

“Excellent location and property, wonderful hosts--exceeded expectations”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This was our first time in Amsterdam and we traveled with our 4 children, ages 8-16. Staying with Chan and Gijsje felt like visiting grandparents--we took to calling her our "Amstergram!" They went out of their way to welcome us, provide great breakfasts (including gluten free baked goods for our son with celiac), and help us get discount tickets to local attractions. They provided great recommendations on what to do during our stay. The house was charming, comfortable, and included all amenities. It was a great central location, just off Rembrandt square. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.
