“An ideal base from which to explore Amsterdam.”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Maarten went out of his way to help us organize the next part of our holiday. Nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was clean, light spacious and comfortable providing a central location close to services and all points of interest in the old city. The information and documentation he provided on points of interest was clear, detailed and extensive.

Lovely, totally renovated apartment right on the canal.Full kitchen with good appliances, including dishwasher. Queen sized bed, with good reading lights, Bathroom all tile, super clean. Apartment is on 1st floor, 1 set of stairs.
10 minute walk from central station, no problem with wheeled suitcase, two super markets, 1 organic, 5 minute walk, restaurants nearby, 5 minute walk to tram lines.
The owner, Maarten, was a wonderful host, lives in the building, as was very accommodating.
This was the 3rd vacation rental in Europe in the last 15 months, and the best by far.

Having the operating manuals for all appliances in English was a great help
Highly recommended.

“Exactly what you want from a canal house apartment stay.”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Wonderful hosts and a beautiful, airy, spacious, modern and comfortable apartment make this one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. I was moving to Amsterdam to live and completely spoiled myself with a stay at Canal View when I first arrived. The location is close enough to everything you want to see, but but far enough away to be away from noisy tourist crowds. There are plenty of places to eat and drink nearby, and wonderfully comfy bed to crash in afterwards. Highly recommended!

“Comfortable apartment with a great view”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in April 2015

During April my husband and I were privileged to stay in the lovely, well-appointed Canal View Apartment. A better location would have been hard to come by as it is within easy walking distance of all major attractions, transport, restaurants, shops etc.
The ‘home away from home’ apartment, owned and managed by the friendly, hospitable Maarten van der Heijden, is most comfortable, beautifully furnished and well equipped. A nice surprise was the complimentary bottle of wine, vase of tulips, fruit and snacks which was much appreciated.
We will always remember how fortunate we were to have ‘ringside’ seats to the King’s birthday celebrations on the canal. It would have been difficult to find a better vantage point!
All in all, a most memorable holiday, thank you Maarten and Lisa!
