“What a lovely place, we very much enjoyed the house and it’s location. Couldn’t be any better, in the middle of one of the best parts of the city, yet calm and peaceful. It was all perfectly arranged as well with bikes and everything, and Marlou & Frank gave us a warm welcome. We would love to come back! ”
Marlou's reviewsAs a host (14)
“We were absolutely delighted to spend a few days in Marlou's lovely house in Amsterdam. It was very spacious and comfortable for my whole family to come together in one place in my own native country for a big birthday. My daughter came from France, one son from America , the other with his wife and baby from England. We had a wonderful picnic in the Vondelpark and explored lots of different parts of the wonderful city. I really hope to do this again one day. Thnaks Marlou and Frank for making it possible.”
“We stayed at this lovely house in Amsterdam in July 2019 and found everything as we had expected. It's location is great. Easy walking to the museum area. The house is on 4 levels with step stairs but that is the way most houses are there. We had no problems going up and down. Clean and tidy and had a lovely outside courtyard. Marlou was very helpful and friendly. ”
“We had such a good time in Amsterdam. Marlou was a great host. Her home was very conveniently located and beautifully decorated. ”
“Sorry this has taken me so long. The house is great and has everything you need to feel at home. Great location, helpful hosts. It was perfect for a long weekend in Amsterdam with first time visitors. Walk to museums, shops, great restaurants. I hope we get te opportunity to come back this year. Many thanks and I owe you all some nespresso pods. I haven't forgotten :). ”
“A wonderful stay in the most beautiful property right in the centre of Amsterdam!! 5 minute walk from the Rijksmuseum! Hosts were very helpful and friendly, nothing was a problem for them! Really enjoyed our stay in Amsterdam, which would not have been the same without this great house! ”
“We had a wonderful stay at Marlou and Frank's house, which is in the most idyllic location in central Amsterdam. The house itself is quiet, peaceful, beautiful, big and very comfortable and the hosts were so welcoming and very helpful with giving us information on how to get there from the train station and what to do while we were there. They were so generous with their time and energies we couldn't have asked for a better first home swap experience. If you are travelling to Amsterdam, I would definitely inquire to see if this home is available!”
“I was unfortately forced to stay in Rome during this planned weekend, my friends that moved in Marlou's apartment spent great time and the property is real spacoius and it has great location. The morlou's son met them for check in procedure and he was friendly and accomodating person. I hope to have chance to come next time in this comfortable apartment.”
“Great location, lovely people, great place to stay. Highly recommended!”
“This was our first LHS experience and we could not be more lucky. Marlou and Frank s house is a gem in the city : central , elegant, private, in a very tranquil and leafy neighbourhood . You walk or bicycle everywhere from here and everything is so close! The beds are very very confortable and the kitchen with its outside garden area is very special . The large living area with its high ceiling make this home unique But most of everything we loved the company, enthusiam and love for the city that Marlou and Frank shared with us with immense generosity. We could not have a better host and we felt in love for this amazing city. We hope to be back soon and of course we hope to have Marlou and Frank visiting us in Cape Town ( another magic place to be ....)”
“This was already my second visit to Marlou's house and it was of course even easier to arrange details. Marlou is a wonderful host, very organized and welcoming and the house is fabulous. Very well located so you can visit the city any which way you want. This time we had to take the tram system because one of my friends was not walking very well. So from the house it is only a few minutes to the tram stops and you can go anywhere in the city. The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen are all very comfortable and Marlou has made a great guide for the house and its appliances. Afterwards I used their bike (really great in Amsterdam if you know the way) and even car to get around. They ofcourse had the same deal in Arcachon with bikes and car. A wonderful exchange and certainly a recommendation for anyone who wishes to visit Amsterdam.”
“One of my favourite visits to Amsterdam! The location, whilst not right in the centre is superb and minutes away from the Museumplein and the lovely Vondel Park. Access to everywhere is simple, public transport in Amsterdam is well planned and constant. Great restaurants in the immediate vicinity and away from the tourist crowds in the centre. Marlou and Franks house is spacious and light and has lovely street views of a typical Amsterdam street. Everything you need! I had the pleasure of meeting both Frank and Marlou and they were lovely and kind hosts! Thank you!”
“We had such a lovely family holiday in Amsterdam. Frank and Marlou are such lovely people, great hosts, very welcoming. Stunning house in a stunning location ”
“Marlou has a very nice typical historic Dutch house next to Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. All main Tram lines and busses coming next by - including direct bus from / to the airport. The house is 4 floors built with a great terrace, and with all the needed equipment for a great stay. It is a classic place for settle down couples who come to the city. In any problem her son David will be there for you. The communication was great as well, and the same time we kept her house, she stayed in ours in tel aviv and was a great guest as well - clean and trustble. ”
