Modern 4 person (2 bedroom) private apartment located in the Pijp. This is said to be one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan neighbourhoods in Amsterdam. The pijp houses a lot of interesting stores, shops and boutiques and is quite famous for its nightlife. The inhabitants of the Pijp are mostly students, (young) professionals and expats. You will hardly encounter any tourists here. The apartment is located in a quiet street, but only two blocks away from the night- and daylife. Find all bars, restaurants, shops and boutiques just around the corner. You can walk to the city-centre in 15 min, or 5 min by bike or tram. A nice and quiet place to sleep, with all the fun within a 5 minute walk! Famous places like the van Gogh museum, Rijksmuseum (Rembrandt), Anne-Frank house, Heineken experience and Albert Cuyp market all are in walking distance, or easily reachable with a short bike or tram ride. The apartment can be your private home away from home with: - Two bedrooms, with a real large double bed in each - Livingroom with balcony, sofa, dining table and a 42 inch TV - Large kitchen with all appliances (Dishwasher, fridge, pots & pans, microwave, etc) - Private clean bathroom - Wooden polished floor throughout all rooms - Clean bed cloth and fresh towels - Fast & Free wireless internet - Check-in after 12:00, check-out before 12:00.

We stayed for a week (two adults and two grown children) while visiting my family and friends. The bedrooms were bigger than expected. Lennart separated the master bedroom's beds so my children could share that room. I would've preferred the nicer bedroom, but there wasn't enough room to separate the beds in the second bedroom. We managed and were quite comfortable; we slept late every morning. The dining room chairs were quite flimsy and the small plastic "coffee table" could've been more sturdy. Although, the living room is small, we all managed to squeeze on the couch and relax in the evening. We didn't know anything about the area, but within two days we became experts thanks to Lennart's maps and information. Within a block there are a few restaurants and if you continue up a few more blocks, you will find wonderful restaurants and a great night life. The Pijp is a great neighborhood away from the noise and crowds and we always felt safe. The tram was located only a few blocks away which brought us into the center of Amsterdam. Lennart is a great host and we enjoyed our stay immensely.

4 of us enjoyed a few days in Amsterdam before the Christmas period, spent hours looking online for the right flat as we tend to use apartments. Eventually chose Lennart's flat and were not disappointed: spacious, modern, had everything we needed, good value for money, easy arrangements for key pick-up, really appreciated the BBC channels, having control over the heating was great as it was particularly cold. Quiet area but near restaurants, supermarkets, museums and the wonderful Albert Cruyp market. A good walk into centre past lovely shops but tram easily available. Came back to Essex fully refreshed. Would not hesitate to go again. Thank you Lennart. Nola

We stated in the apt. for almost a week (it was 3 adults and two young children). The place is great, two good size bedrooms, big kitchen and relatively small living room (but with a nice couch and Tv). The area is great, close (i.e. well within walking distance) to the trams going to the city center, close to a little square with restaurants, close to Albert Cruyt market and a supermarket, close to a park with a nice playground for the kids. Everything is pretty much there for you: laundry, kitchen utensils, even a baby crib, etc. very convenient for a family stay. The only negative I can think of is that it is up two flights of stairs, one of which is very tight/windie

Whenever we travel (all over the world), we rent an apartment to stay in rather than a hotel room as we like the feeling of having a home away from home. We have high expectations of the places we stay and the Jardin Dreams apartment has been among the most comfortable and well situated apartments. It is close to public transit, and there is a park, restaurants, and supermarket within easy walking distance. An additional bonus was the large outdoor market just a few blocks away! The contact with our host was excellent as he was quick to respond to any questions we had. All we can say is well done!

Despite the fact that it is member of bed and breakfast places to rent, the fridge was empty, and there was nothing for breakfast other than sugar and coffee. So ok its nice but..
I am very sorry to see your negative review, after having received so many positive reactions from other guests. The apartment does not include breakfast. This is always communicated by email before any booking. Coffee and tea are supplied for free, without limits. I am sorry that you somehow expected otherwise, and also that you did not let me know there was a problem. I would have gladly provided a solution. I do my uttermost best to provide the best experience. The apartment is cleaned very througly after every visit. Amsterdam tour guides are available for free, and I am always reachable by phone & email. In the direct neighbourhood there are many restaurants, for all budgets.
