Staying at Jeroen and Marjolein's apartment was more than we could have asked for. It was an absolutely beautiful apartment with an even better view! The apartment was a wonderful size, was tastefully decorated, and had everything we needed! Jeroen and Marjolein were so easy to communicate with before our trip, and they were there to answer any questions and provide suggestions to make our trip more enjoyable. Jeroen patiently waited at the apartment, even though our flight was delayed a bit, and helped us bring all of our luggage upstairs!! The stairs are a bit steep and narrow, so just keep that in mind when deciding what luggage to bring.
There isn't a sink in the bathroom, which was not a problem at all for us, but just keep that in mind if that is something you aren't willing to go without. However, that should NOT deter you from renting this Airbnb, as everything else they offer is 5+ stars. The kitchen has a nice large sink, with a dishwasher, washing machine, and the fridge is full of condiments and cooking essentials. They even had two cold Heinekens waiting for us upon arrival, along with water in the fridge!
The bed is extremely comfortable, and I honestly could have stayed in bed all day. It was exactly what we needed to get a good nights' sleep after long days of sightseeing. The living room is very cozy, and we loved looking out the large floor-ceiling windows and people watching over the beautiful canal view. The neighborhood was very quiet, but close to everything. We really enjoyed walking around the streets, stopping into little cafes/pubs and we stopped by Foodhallen twice for dinner/drinks (only about a 10 minute walk). It's a large, open, VERY upscale cafeteria-style dining area where a lot of the locals hang out, eat everything from oysters to burgers, and grab drinks. I would highly recommend.
Overall, Jeroen and Marjolein were exceptional hosts and have created an amazing place to rent in a local community away from the busy city center (but still a very close walk). I would highly recommend this apartment, and I can't wait to go back to visit Amsterdam again so I can stay here! I would honestly move to this apartment if I could :) Thank you Jeroen and Marjolein for a wonderful Amsterdam experience!!
