Property summary
Address: Marnixstraat, 1016 XR Amsterdam, Netherlands
Property type: Private room
Property ID: AAZSJKO5

My apartment is situated right next to the world-famous Jordaan district, renowned for its canal houses and special authentic atmosphere. Your sitting/bedroom is decorated in a modern-cozy style with a dutch twist. Of course there is broadband WiFi and the room has its own separate entrance, so you’ll have a lot of privacy.

There is a bedroom with a real bed for two. You can use another room to sit in and relax. The apartment has a shower, toilet and a functional kitchen, with everything you need. A coffee machine and microwave are available and you are welcome to use it to prepare your breakfast, if you want. Cinnamon spiced cookies and mini sirop waffres are provided as a complimentary gift.

Amidst the bustle of the cultural, entertainment and shopping heart of the inner city, our place boasts the hidden gem of a spacious private communal garden.

This apartment is at the epicenter of historic Amsterdam, offering everything you want when you visit this fantastic city: world-renowned museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Municipal Museum of Modern Art and the Van Gogh, the World Heritage listed canals, and the flower market are all within 3 – 7 minutes’ walking distance.

Theaters, galleries, cinemas and the Vondelpark are also literally around the corner. For instance, the Ticketshop where you can buy last-minute theater tickets at a 50% discount is just 2 minutes away. Maps and flyers on current theater shows are at your disposal.
Walking or cycling – do like the Dutch! - to the Anne Frank house, you come across the picturesque ‘9 Little Streets’ with lots of small boutiques, cafes and bistros. You can also visit the daily Albert Cuyp market where everything from fresh produce to nice affordable gifts, clothes and flowers in all colours of the rainbow are offered. If you are interested in medieval Amsterdam, I’ll be happy to give you a free guided tour (this is what I used to do in a former life ;)).

My name is Ron and I am a native ‘Amsterdammer’. My family has lived in this beautiful city for centuries and I feel proud and privileged to live here. Amsterdam provides a home to no less than 180 nationalities, has an open mind and is small in scale, so wherever you come from, you’ll easily find your way and feel at home.
I have a background in philosophy and currently work as a quality auditor on fire fighting for the dutch Home ministry. I enjoy meeting people from different cultures and have therefore decided to open and share my house.

I’ll be happy to welcome you at my home and the city of my ancestors.

Do come and stay!

10 Excellent

Very nice apartment and clean, in a quiet, non-hazardous and very close to the Leidseplein: an area full of restaurants and night entertainment venues.
All areas of amsterdam are easily accessible by trams that stop in front of the apartment.

Ron is a lovely person, very kind, present for any help or clarification. And 'attention to detail and is very hospitable.

For the experience I had I definitely would recommend it!

Thank you very much Ron!!

Very clean, nice & cosy two-room apartment. The district is calm so one can easily sleep during the night.
This spot is very close to the city center (10 minutes by walking). Ideal for people coming to visit museums and also to enjoy the nightlife. Many clubs and bars are very close.

Bonus : the guest, Ron, is adorable !
