We stayed for two nights on a cold February weekend. Arjen met us at the apartment - he had offered to meet us at the station but his directions were so clear we found it easily. He showed us around and then gave us an interesting tour of the surrounding area with snippets of history. All very useful and informative as we were starving and the wonderful Dutch restaurant he recommended served great eggs and cheese. Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Everything we needed in the kitchen, lashings of hot water and very comfortable beds-and for somewhere so central it was very quiet. Hope to be back.

My family and I had a great stay in Amsterdam and would thoroughly recommend Captain's House. The location was perfect, a nice community feel to the area rather than being too busy but still really close to everything - it was great. The apartment was really tidy and Arjen was brilliant- from his friendly helpful nature and short guided tour to the beer and refreshments waiting for us in the fridge. He even let my two kids use his football in the local park! Also the beds were great, we all slept really well.

we will be back. Thanks Arjen.

We stayed with Arie for several days. He met us at the station, helped us with our bags, showed us where to eat and shop, and joined us for one dinner and several drinks, all at our suggestion --- he did not intrude!. The house is charming (although we stayed downstairs, which is no longer rented), historic, tastefully modernized and very comfortable. The neighborhood is great: close to the center but quiet and historic.
One possible issue: There are a lot of steps up to the apartment..
I give this place my highest recommendation!

Thank you for your review.

Just to clarify about the stairs, all historic houses (and quite few newer ones as well) in Amsterdam will have steep stairs. This one is actually a new one, the originals are quite a bit steeper and narrower. Since they were just for walking and goods would be hauled in with a pully.

Stair fences for kids are available for safety, hundreds of kids have grown up on these floors, in this house ;)
