This top half of an Amsterdam building is spacious, light, beautiful and serene, a happy place to be in, beautifully decorated, and wonderfully quiet. Its location, a ten-minute walk from Museumplein and the Concertgebouw, while completely quiet and untouristy, is perfect for culture-lovers. There are many excellent food-shopping and dining venues close by. The kitchen is fantastically equipped and also a beautiful place to cook, looking out on the back gardens, with a little balcony to step out on in warm weather. The roof deck looks so inviting for summer - we would love to return in a warmer season and be able to use it. The bathroom is great, luxurious and warm. Everything in this apartment works and combines function with beauty. The narrow stairs mentioned by other guests are carpeted and one gets used to them quickly. The master bedroom is huge and again has wonderful large windows. We had friends visiting for a couple of days, and the larger second bedroom was very comfortable for them. Our one suggestion is to have a bit more lighting in the living room and bedrooms, the lights are a bit dim (maybe mainly for older people). Otherwise perfect. I have written all of this as if the apartment existed sui generis, but in fact it is the creation of its wonderful, charming and extremely hospitable owner Mies. Mies was super responsive before and during our stay, she communicated thoroughly and graciously, and went way beyond what most owners offer in terms of meeting our needs for checking in and out, and her help and suggestions. She has a golden touch as a decorator, is very generous (thank you for the lovely gifts!) and a really nice person. She came by with her youngest child the first evening and I wished we could have seen her again, as she was so interesting and likeable. So, I can't say enough good things about Mies, her wonderful home, and our stay there! Ten stars.
What a wonderful experience!! We stayed in Coleta’s boathouse with our two small children and they enjoyed it as much as we did! The house was clean, warm and inviting and the beds were so incredibly comfortable!
We highly recommend this place and will definitely be back!!
