Spacious and bright apartment home swap
My apartment was built in 1992 and has two floors. The lower floor has an open plan kitchen and living room looking out on to a sunny balcony facing South over gardens.
On the upper floor there are two large bedrooms, both with double bedsOne of the bedrooms leads on to a roof terrace with table, chairs, barbecue, which catches the evening sun. There is a bathroom with bath and shower and toilet upstairs and a second toilet downstairs.
The apartment is comfortable, warm and friendly. Good neighbours too who all speak English as well as Dutch.
I have no pets but a few plants which may need watering.
About the location
I live in ´Oost´ or East Amsterdam. This is a neighbourhood which is fast becoming gentrified but still has a very mixed population and retains a 'local' feel. There is a large open market nearby (the Dappermarkt) and there are loads of shops with everything you could imagine just round the corner.
Just a 2-minute walk from my house there are trams and buses which will take you directly to the centre (10 mins) and the museums (15 mins). There is also a train station 3 minutes from my house with a train directly to Schiphol.
The flat is very quiet and there is no noise from neighbours. There are trains which pass regularly but you don't really hear them and not at all with the windows closed.
There are gardens at the back and it is a quiet and safe street with friendly neighbours and children playing outside on the pavement and in the small green park opposite. There are several larger parks close by.
I have two bikes which you can use to get around.
