I'd  really appreciate it, when you did stay with us, if you would write a review on Tripadvisor. Thank you for spending some time on this! 

Great apartment

Overall great apartment for anyone who wants to be centrally located but also wants a kitchen for cooking any market groceries.

Perfectly located

Bastiaan's place is perfectly located for exploring Amsterdam and is really beautifully done. The Delft Blue apartment is slightly lower than the ground level, but it is a great place to stay for tourism and going out. The decoration is amazing and Bastiaan himself is really helpful. Would definitely come again!

Perfect stay

Nothing to say, the apartment is very nice, the neighborhood is perfect (good restaurant and bar). There was a homemade guide (important because made by a local) with aproximatly everything you could have to know inside. We had perfect holidays !

Better then the pictures

My mum and I stayed in Bastian's flat for four days and everything was just perfect. He's been really accommodating and helpful from the very beginning: we checked in on the very day of Christmas, but despite that, he let us rent the flat anyway. Moreover, we were given very clear help even when I found myself unable to read his email with the instructions for entering the apartment. The flat was even better than pictured in the photos, really cosy and perfect if you want to enjoy living in the very centre of Amsterdam, but still right outside the hustle and bustle of the city. Everything you would need to make your stay a most enjoyable and relaxing one is provided, you can even find lots of useful tips about what's there to see in this vibrant city. Last but not least, I'd like to mention Bastiaan's kindness in providing us a place to store our luggage on our check-out day. If I am ever to go back to Amsterdam, I know for sure where I shall stay :)

Amazing apartment

Amazing apartment, located in central but it sits on a quieter side canal with loads of amazing eateries, shops and coffee houses minutes from your doorstep. Central train station is only a 10/15 minuet walk meaning this apartment is easily accessible from the station and airport. We were greeting with a shiny, clean apartment with everything as expected, there’s a lovely cosy feel to this place. Will be sure to return soon!

Amazing host

Bastiaan is an amazing host. The apartment is in a wonderful, central location. Surprisingly it is peaceful too. The photos do not do justice and the apartment is very nice and modern with amenities like a Nespresso coffee machine, dish washer, hair dryer, towels, internet etc.

HIGHLY recommended

Charming!!!! Location was perfect for exploring Amsterdam. This flat is located right on a lovely small canal and on a small street with minimal traffic. We loved sitting at the table by the front window and watch as boats float by. There was a little duck family with a half a dozen ducklings right outside our window. The flat is well decorated, comfortable seating are and comfortable king size bed. Kitchen had everything needed to fix a small meal. Loved having a washer and separate dryer. Large shower and plenty towels. Check in was quick and easy, Wilson was very helpful. Quiet, quaint and charming. HIGHLY recommend.

Thrilled to stay

My wife and I were thrilled to spend the past week in Bastiaan's Delft Blue apartment. It is beautifully furnished (very "Dutch") and well-equipped. It has a fully-equipped kitchen and a separate bedroom --with comfortable large bed. It is located on a quiet street, on a canal, and yet is easy walking distance to virtually everything in central Amsterdam. We look forward to staying here again on our next trip to one of the world's most wonderful and exciting cities -Amsterdam

Perfect place

This really is the perfect place to stay if there is one person or a couple who can share the large bed. Great location and professionally handled by the owner. Would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic host and location

Fantastic host. Great location. Very close to center and yet very quiet. Very spacious for two people and the guidebook they provide makes for a very cool experience. Also the apartment is furnished so nicely that it gives a lovely home feel to the stay. Would definitely be one of the best apartments I have stayed at.

Look no further!

The apartment was exactly as pictured, even more spacious than we imagined. It is very quiet although it is right in the middle of everything. There was a nespresso machine which is always an added bonus! Bed was large and extremely comfortable and communication was super easy. If looking for a place in Amsterdam look no further! Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Awesome host!

Bas was an awesome host!! The apt is more than beautiful and in a great location! Communication was great and check in and out was a breeze! Will book again!

What a lovely apartment!

What a lovely apartment! Nestled on quiet and beautiful street, but perfectly located between the incredible museums and lively bars! Everything was easy walking distance and on the weekends we were a moments walk away from a fun flea market. We arrived late at night, but Bastiaan was incredibly accommodating in providing us a key to still get into the apartment. All around a fantastic location, apartment, and value in a beautiful city!

Will be back!

Excellent location in the centre of Amsterdam, but in a quiet residential canal-side setting. Easy walking to many of the main attractions. Two minutes walk to metro, which gives fast access to Central station so getting to and from Schiphol is quick and un-complicated. Charming flat, comfortable, clean and well equipped. We will be back!

I would definitely rent again!

We had a wonderful stay. Wonderful location in a busy area on a quite canal. The home was exactly as described. I would definitely rent again

Great stay!

Bas was a great host and check in was a breeze. The apartment is just as described, sits on a quiet canal and is in walking distance from shops, restaurants and more. I had a great stay!

Strongly recommended!

Bastiaan was welcoming and attentive, the place is exactly as beautiful as it looks in the photos & the it is located in the heart of Amsterdam overlooking the beautiful canals and walking distance from all attractions. I recommend it strongly.

Perfect accomodation

The perfect accommodation for a long weekend trip with my partner. The house is on a quiet side street just minutes from all the activities of the city. The house had everything we needed and we had no reason to bother our host during our stay. Id recommend staying here over a soulless hotel any day. We felt safe at all times here, the neighbours were friendly and we felt like we had our own space in a different country. I'm very happy with the prices for the house and found it to be far more affordable than a hotel in this location would cost. The host provided local information which we took advantage of, after all he does live there! I plan on coming back to Amsterdam soon and would 100% stay at this house again, it really is perfect. 

Excellent stay

Excellent stay thanks to the host. Fantastic apartment, very comfortable and well placed. Will definitely be back in Amsterdam again.

Wll book again!

Bastiaan was very welcoming and was very clear in explaining where everything was and even helped with local amenities and travel guides. Bastiaan even helped me when I locked myself out. The apartment was very clean and an excellent location. Would recommend this apartment for any business professionals and tourists visiting Amsterdam in the future. I will definitely be re-booking on my next visit. 

Highly recommended!

Bastiaan's apartment was just right - great central location and I fulfilled a long-held dream of having a canal view in Amsterdam. A helpful list of restaurants and local shops greeted us, and the apartment is quiet, apart from the very endearing carillon of bells (which stops at night!). The late checkout time is really helpful too - we didn't have to worry about where to store our luggage and meant we had a good extra day in Amsterdam. Highly recommended.

Cosy and nicely decorated

Everything worked out well during our stay in Bastian's Apartement. It is cosy, nicely decorated and clean - perfect for a couple. The location is good too: on the canal, in downtown of Amsterdam. And we enjoyed the sound of the bells from the church around the corner.

Wonderful stay

Wonderful stay in Amsterdam, this was our second visit and we didn't think we would enjoy again so much. Bas' apartment was exactly as you see in pictures. Beautiful place to stay, great surrounding area. Thank you!

Bigger then the photos

Bastiaan's house was great - in the heart of Amsterdam, spic and span clean and a very cute and pleasant interior. The house is bigger than the photos imply. If you want to see how it feels to live in an old Amsterdam canal house, it's a prime example. Bastiaan himself was friendly and communicative. Many thanks for the hospitality!


We stayed in the apartment of bas, the apartment was just like the pictures , beautiful clean and equipped with all the best  Wilson welcomed us  made ​​sure to give us a tour of the apartment and checked that we had everything and even showed us around the apartment . Excluding taxis from the apartment to the airport. Has always been one to trust . We want to say thank you particularly to Wilson bas and special hospitality and caring enjoyed every minute and of course we'll recommend to everyone!

Highly recommended

Alex and I had a wonderful trip to Amsterdam. Staying at the lovely apartment of Bastiaan's was perfect. The apartment was cozy, comfortable and nicely appointed. Facing a smaller canal off the really busy streets was so nice after a long day walking Amsterdam on foot. We were also overjoyed to have a King sized bed too. After a week with our french family, we had just come from sleeping in a little tiny one. Oh boy, a King! Oh, and the shower is quite nice too. The kitchen is well appointed too. We didnt' really have enough time to cook in, but, if we had stayed longer, would would have done more meals at the apartment. And, if you're new to Amsterdam, Bastiaan provides a really nice binder full of recommendations for local restaurants, getting taxi's etc. REALLY helped a lot. I would highly recommend Bastiaan's apartment for anyone who wants a spacious, serene and well appointed apartment in central Amsterdam.

Professional host

Bastiaans appartement is excellently kept and in a very convenient location. He is a very professional and lovely host who answers immediately. We loved it and highly recommend his place!!

Amazing accomodation

Overall the accommodation was amazing! Staying there, I felt like I was in my own little world escaping from reality amongst a massive rainforest. The hammocks are the most comfy hammocks I've ever slept in! The place was HUGE!! Really great value for money and just a gorgeous place! I would definitely recommend this to my friends.


Bastiaan was very welcoming when we arrived, and the apartment had everything we needed. The apartment was located right in front of a beautiful canal where you could sit and relax. Everything was within walking distance from the front door, and we enjoyed many of the restaurants recommended by Bastiaan. I would definitely recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Amsterdam, and Bastiaan really made our stay easier and more enjoyable.

Totally recommended!

We were very happy with our apartment It was close to everything and in a quiet location on the canal. Totally recommend it and we would certainly stay again!

Great apartment + Great location = Great Stay

When sightseeing in Amsterdam, it was always nice to  be able to come bakc to a comfortable apartment and feel like at home with everything one needs. We are definitely going to recommend it to family and friends in California and Germany. Great apartment + Great Location = Great stay! Auf wiedersehen = See you again!

Not often in life experience

It is not often in life that you travel far from your home and arrive in a place you instantly feel you could belong here. This was what happened in this wonderful apartment, which offers so many delights. Thank you and hope to return

We loved our stay

Thank you Bas, we loved our stay! Your city guide was just incredible, thanks. We hope others who will stay here enjoy as we have.Thanks again.

Amazing vacation at home

Another amazing vacation at home. Your apartment has everything you need to relax, cook a meal with ingredients bought on the Saturday farmers market On Nieuwmarkt square and enjoy a rainy day. Who needs lunch or dinner on a canal at a cafe? We just sit and eat by the window in your apartment with its wonderful view.
