We have been visiting Amsterdam yearly for over 10 years now and have stayed mostly within canal belts, how silly of us to be missing out?!This was THE best stay to date. We were warmly greeted on arrival, shown around apartment and really felt at ease. The apartment its self is spacious, well kept and just felt like home. We were lucky, (even though raining at times)to have good weather to enjoy Amsterdam.But were just as happy relaxing and enjoying the "living" experience too. There is a supermarket 2mins away and a beautiful bakery, restaurants and shops. Perfect for couples, small family or group, a first time visitor, or a regular to Amsterdam. Dam square, museums and attractions are all no more than 10-15 mins walk away. However if you would like a more relaxed local feel then this is the best of both . Could write so much more, but would recommend finding out for yourself!
