  • Sunny, light, happy contemporary apartment mixing antiques and modern design.

Our modern apartment (110 square metres in total) is on the top floor of a four story building with elevator! It has two large skylights and an expanse of windows providing much light and sunshine indoors. The apartment has an open-concept design with sliding doors. A serre/loggia (West) looks out over a quiet green space and a large waterway. The large master bedroom (East) receives morning sunshine. We have a brand-new king-size comfy boxspring bed in the master bedroom. A second bedroom has one comfortable sofa bed. Interior design is an eclectic mix of contemporary and antique.

Our modern, stylish apartment is located in the Eastern Docklands area of Amsterdam (maximum 5 minutes direct tram ride to Central Station). The area has been completely redeveloped in the past 20 years with a close eye for the past (refurbishing historical monuments) and is popular among architecture tourists. There are a number of lovely cafes and restaurants, and other shops are close by. Excellent public transportation (both bus and tram) brings you quickly and safely to the 17th century heart of Amsterdam.

We are just home from wonderful 14 days in Marc and Sams lovely apartment. Everything was great (well not the weather). Bed was great, the loggia lovely for a day inside. Sitting there made even rain into something nice. We are looking forward to welcome Marc and Sam to our apartment in Copenhagen

We had a wonderful relaxing time in Sam and Marc's lovely appartment. Within a short trip by bike or tram you can get everywhere in this beautiful city. Spending new years eve in Amsterdam was amazing. Everything went perfect, thanks to Sam and Marc!

Christian and I + a friend stayed at Marc and Sam place over a long weekend, nov. 2015. Our maingoal was a "rendevouz with Madonna". We enjoyed the apartment, Amsterdam and Madonna. The apartment is very nice, clean, with beautiful light and views - just like on the pictures. It was functional and close to public transportation. Marc and Sam were very kind and helpfull. We are looking forward welcome Marc and Sam in our home July, 2016.

We spent a wonderful week in Sam and Marc flat.

Even though it isn't central, it is very close to the old city. The tram stop is only 3 minute walk from the flat, served by 2 lines: 10 and 26 (26: only 3 stops to Amsterdam Centraal station). By bicycle, it is very fast as well (only 15 minutes).

A very nice supermarket is 8 minute walk.

The district is worth visiting too, away from mass tourism.

As the neighborhood is very quiet and the king-size bed very comfortable, we slept very well all night long.

The flat has everything you need and is especially bright.

Thank you Sam and Marc for everything.
