“Village within the town”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The Wharf house was all we expected. Very clean, well equipped,and warm.
Wouter and Leisbeth were on hand to welcome us, and took time to explain everything, as well as suggesting various restaurants in the area.
We had two small problems with the heating tripping out, but Wouter dealt with this extremely efficiently, and he made us feel as if this was OUR house, and that he was intruding. We felt that was a nice attitude to have.
Do NOT worry about the distance of this little island from the centre.
It's quite delightfull, and a step back in time.
You can catch the 18,21 or22 bus from Buiten Oranjestraat to the Central Station, and then onward with virtually any bus or tram to all of the attractions......when you pay once you can use the ticket for an hour;
One word about transport.It costs 5,90 per ticket each, so it's much better to buy a day pass at 7,50 each,and use it as many times as you wish. If you happen to be going regularly, buy the OV chipkaart, which is rechargeable.
Should you wish to walk,it will only take about 15 minutes to Dam Square.
All in all, a lovely place to stay, quiet enough to get a good nights sleep, and yet near enough to feel part of the City.

“Great place to stay.”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in September 2014

This is a lovely well equipped apartment in a quiet older area within walking distance of many sites favored by visitors, shopping and a wide variety of restaurants.
The owner life next door and are very friendly and helpful, with day planning restaurant suggestions and arranging transport to and from the airport and around the city.
They provide a wonderful canal tour, and went out of their way to rent a wheelchair for us when my wife fell and broke her foot.
We have stayed in many wonderful places but this is by far the best and we have many wonderful memories.

“Beautiful apartment, excellent location, very friendly hosts.”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 for a stay in July 2013

This is an immaculately presented apartment with beautiful fittings and furnishings. Located on a canal and walking distance to the heart of Amsterdam.The host took us on a personal tour of the city in his own 7m boat and was very friendly and informative, his wife provided us with morning tea.
We both highly recommend this apartment.

“Wow”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This apartment is amazing, and we really hope to return to stay again in the future. The craftsmanship of the owner, Wouter, is evident in every detail. We loved the personal canal ride and the location of the apartment is in such a picturesque, convenient neighborhood. We were so lucky to find this apartment, we would not stay anywhere else in Amsterdam. Wouter went out of his way to make sure we were comfortable (we arranged through him pickup/return transportation to the airport, as well as breakfast available in the fridge for the first night of our arrival). The apartment also has plenty of maps and guidebooks for guests' use, as well as a cellphone. The bed and linens were wonderful. The property is also a good value, compared to what we would have had to spend at a hotel. Highly, highly recommended! We really didn't want to leave...

“A quiet, convenient apartment on an island”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The location, on an island, is a quiet picturesque "village in the city" just five minutes' walk to groceries and the tram lines to the museums. A long street full of cafes and shopping is also within five minutes, about 15 minutes more to Centraal Station. The top floor of the apartment, the living/dining/kitchen, is bright and airy. Downstairs, a comfortable bed and double armoires provided plenty of space. The adjacent bathroom, like the entire apartment was new and everything worked perfectly. If you are the kind of traveler who likes a bit more independence than a hotel in order to experience some of the typical daily life of Amsterdam citizens, Wharf House is ideal. The hosts provide plenty of advice on local restaurants and sites anda mobile phone to contact them or make reservations.
