About Doortje

I am a 34 year old city girl who loves to decorate homes, cook healthy meals, practice yoga and working on my own label Hippie Beach. I am also a loving mother of a 2 years old daughter. My daydream: living on the beach, surfing the white water and follow the sun!

Doortje purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Doortje chose Oud West

The property is in a quiet street, the apartment is very bright, clean and renovated in a very all-round area where you can find and experience everyhting you want and more. There is a coffee company at the corner where they serve the best coffee and much more around the corner you can grab something to eat and enjoy the very long street where you can find so many shops to enjoy.

When you are more a park person you can go and enjoy the famous Vondelpark.

What makes this apartment unique

Being very central, very bright, new, many different shops on 1 minute walking distance. The street is very calm but within 1 min you can feel the positive energy of this very alive area.

Cozy apartment in a FANTASTINC Location!

  • 4 of 5

Apartment is nice and clean. If you are looking to blend with the locals this is it! NOT a touristy place to stay (In our case that's what we always look for while vacationing). Perfect size for a couple, comfy bed, kitchen has all you need, apartment cooling/heated system is very good, wide setting area. Staircase is very narrow (but nothing you wouldn't expect for an apartment in Amsterdam), washer and dryer are available although the dryer did not work. Small size bathroom but not uncomfortable. There are restaurants, farmers markets and markets walking distance and an AMAZING place called de Food Hallen, when staying here DON'T miss it! Tram is just across the street and is super easy to use and get around.

Our West Amsterdam Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our week's stay in Doortje's apartment was perfect. For us this was an ideal location, away from the more congested center of the city, but with easy access to Tram 17 into the Central Station where we then took trains on day trips. We would not hesitate to book this property on a return visit to the city. Amsterdam is one of our favorite destinations in Northern Europe, this being our fifth visit.

Everything you need!

  • 4 of 5

This was such a lovely place to stay! We stayed here the first week of 2017. We are a young couple from Canada and this met every expectation we had. The kitchen was fully stocked, modern and clean. Great wifi and such a nice area. The washroom was clean and modern as well! I felt quite at home in his apartment. If you want to be central to the business of Amsterdam this might not be for you it's about a 15-20 minute walk to Leidseplein, or 7 minute tram ride which is at your door step! There are great restaurants in the area that are less touristy and quieter. We enjoyed this aspect of the location. Would definitely stay here again.

My only caution, bring a pillow or buy one at the hema directly across the street from the apartment. The pillows were awful and prevented us from getting a good sleep so we purchased our own. Common in Amsterdam, the apartment is not the most accessible as it has steep stairs, luckily the property manager Thomas who checked us in was wonderful and helped us carry my overpacked suitcase up the stairs!

Definitely would recommend to friends and family!

Great accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for us and our visit to Amsterdam. It was located a few steps from the tram which took us to all the places we wanted to visit. There was a coffee shop below and a grocery store nearby. Having a kitchen in the apartment made it convenient to have quick meals. We would definitely stay there again.

Apartment well located for amenities and public transport, providing a real Amsterdam experience.

  • 3 of 5

My partner Julie and I stayed at the apartment 03rd – 10th December 2016. Communications with Doortje were both prompt and helpful throughout to arrange occupancy, extending to her providing a comprehensive set of instructions to reach the address by public transport on our arrival in to Schiphol Airport. Access to this 1st floor apartment is made precariously via a particularly steep and narrow staircase, and great care was needed in ascending and descending, and therefore it cannot be recommended for people with limited mobility.

The kitchen was spacious. Initially the oven refused to work, and with no instruction manual we had to communicate further with the local key holder to rectify, which was done promptly within 48 hours of arrival. The kitchen requires more utensils, cutlery & crockery.

The bathroom was disappointing, possessing only a very small hand basin of limited functionality, combined with the plug failing to seal properly, meant washing and shaving was performed at the kitchen sink. The shower was excellent with a plentiful supply of hot water.

The bedroom was cramped, requiring you to crawl over and in to bed. The bed frame was fixed in place, and a considerable amount of dust, hair and even a single ear plug could be seen underneath through inadequate cleaning. The linen, and towels especially, were looking quite “tired” and would benefit from replacement.

We found the property’s heating and WiFi to be excellent, the TV to have a good selection of Dutch and English speaking channels and the furniture functional. Despite the surrounding urban living space we were not disturbed by the neighbours or road traffic. Overall after a busy day of cultural and historical sightseeing it was a pleasant space in which to relax.

Locally on or nearby to Jan Pieter Heijestraat there were a number of supermarkets (Spar and Alfred Heijn). The tram stop located immediately outside was served by the No. 17 (direct to Central Station) and the No.7 (direct to Museumplein). We walked back from visits to the van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum through the “Vondelpark”, the journey taking no more than 30 minutes at a comfortable walking pace.

We left the apartment clean and tidy with no damage, and the €150 damage deposit was pleasingly re-credited within only a few days of departing. In conclusion we felt the property was acceptable and our experience largely positive, and therefore recommend with some reservations.
