The key to airbnb is identifying the city, along the area you’d like to live in and then READ the reviews. Thanks to the great reviews I ended up choosing to stay with Thomas, Flavia and their little dog Sam near the beautiful Rembrandt Park in Amsterdam. Thomas and Flavia are wonderful hosts, warm, welcoming and accommodating. If you have a problem or need any help especially directions (I can be directionally challenged) they’re always willing to help. It was like I was living with friends, I felt totally at ease. See Thomas’ profile on airbnb here.

The apartment is in a quiet neighbourhood, but still easy to get around the rest of the city from by bicycle (I can’t cycle) or bus and tram which were my preferred modes of transport. The room is spacious, clean and sunny with a large window. It also has a desk and wifi should you need to work which I did!

It all came in at a great price. Thank you Thomas, Flavia and Sam for a wonderful 5 nights!
