Over Frank De Smalen

We are a married couple, Frank is Dutch and I am British. We have lived in Amsterdam for 26 years. We are both teachers, I teach English as a foreign language and my husband specialises in IT.

We love meeting people from all over the world! Our favourite travel destinations are California, Istanbul and Wales. Frank was born in Amsterdam and knows the town inside out and can help you with any queries you may have. We live only 10 minutes away from the holiday apartment so can help you out at anytime.

We're happy to spend some time with you or you're quite welcome to explore Amsterdam independently! We also have bikes that we loan out to guests as we believe this is the ideal way to see Amsterdam and get to know it.

Het jaar van aankoop is 1997

Waarom Amsterdam

Unique view onto one of Amsterdam's remaining windmills. Direct view onto a canal where pleasure boats sail by. Children and adults love to sit by the window and watch the world go by!

Wat deze vakantiewoning zo uniek maakt

Our studio apartment is very spacious! 85 square metres! Guests are always say wow! when they see it for the first time. We also include the loan of bicycles so you will feel like a real Amsterdammer!

Gastenboek reacties van de eigenaar

Hello, Angela and Frank!

We are already in Moscow and today it is snowing.

We miss the bright colors of Amsterdam and Keukenhof’s flowers so much!

I’d like to thank you once again for warm welcome and the excellent apartments.

You are wonderful people indeed! It was very comfortable for us to stay in your apartments, we used bicycles you provided.

In apartments there was everything necessary for pleasant staying. And what a magnificent view from the window it was! Many different vessels floating by, from huge barges to small boats. The apartments are very conveniently located – it is possible to reach the historical center either on foot (20 minutes) or by bicycle or by bus/tram (10 minutes). It takes only 5 minutes on foot to go to the AH closest supermarket, and only 12-15 minutes to reach the Central station by 21 buses. One can go from the station to Zaanse Schans by bus ?391 and to Keukenhof by bus ?858. Also nearby there is Museum-scientific center NEMO which it is interesting to the children. It takes 10-15 minutes by bicycle to reach the Rembrandt Park, Vondelpark.

We had an excellent holiday in Amsterdam, we felt very cozy.

Great Location, Great View, Spacious Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in an ideal location for us - within about 1/2 hour walking distance from Central Station in the Jordaan area. We usually walked into the central district, or wherever we were going each day, but depending on how tired we were later, we sometimes took the bus back. The bus stop is only 2 blocks away. We especially liked that the apartment was in a little quieter area; ideal for winding down at the end of our busy days. It is spacious and we all loved the hammock!

We also took advantage of the bikes that were available to us and adjusted to the "bike rules" quickly.

Some other benefits:

-very clean

- the grocery store is just a few blocks away

- Anne Frank Museum about a 10 minute bike ride

- Great bagel and coffee store right by the bus stop (Bagels & Beans)

- Nice view of the canal

- Maps and general information available to us

- Owners are easy to communicate with, responsive and accommodating

We would highly recommend staying at this apartment!

Wonderful apartment on the canal

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time watching the boating action on the canal as the apartment is literally right over the water. The apartment was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The kitchen was small but met our needs. The grocery store is within walking distance as is the bus to the central station. We were probably the only tourists in the vicinity so we felt as if we were better immersed in the local life of Amsterdam. We enjoyed the Rooster café near the canal as a nice local eatery (don’t expect an English menu!) and the family owned type of small stores and food near the bus stop. Neighbors Carmen and Theo were very helpful as the owners were out of town during our stay. The owners were very prompt in communicating prior to our stay. Our only very minor issue was that we were unaware of the limit of 2 devices on signing onto the WIFI and would have made different choices had we known. But we had a GREAT time and it was really just perfect for the two of us!

Reactie van de eigenaar Thank you so much and we are delighted you had a good time. We have reset the devices on Wifi to limitless as we had it on 5 and we suspect our neighbour was using our Wifi during our stay. He 'borrowed' it for a while but that was a temporary agreement not to be extended indefinitely, so I apologise for any inconvenience caused. Glad that our apartment and living amongst the locals suited you so well :)

cheery, bright, clean, convenient, quiet

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our stay in Amsterdam. Convenient (SHORT walk) to everything but just outside the crowds and tourists. The apartment is so cheery and bright, and the big doors & windows overlooking the canal bring the atmosphere right into the apartment. Everything is very clean and modern, but with bright touches and personal art to make it homey at the same time. Kitchen met all of our needs. Bed was extremely comfortable. Internet access & TV worked like a charm. Even watched some DVDs while we rested our feet from long and happy walks. Very quiet -- no noise from outside, upstairs, or next door. Everything about the arrangements was smooth and convenient, from reserving through checking out. Frank and Angela know what it takes to make a vacation rental work, and they've done it. There's plenty of information and maps for your reference, and Frank or Angela can readily provide recommendations and insights. There was a great supermarket very close at hand, with plenty of fresh produce, good baked goods, ready-to-eat entrees. We found some very good restaurants also within a short walk. And you are just outside the Jordan neighborhood, packed with restaurants, cafes and such. We would happily stay here again.

Leuk uitzicht, prima lokatie!

  • 5 of 5

De lokatie van dit apartement is ideaal. Op loopafstand van het centrum en de gezellige Jordaan. Ook goede verbindingen met het openbaar vervoer naar alle mogelijke attracties binnen en buiten de stad. Heel fijn was de beschikbaarheid van fietsen. Er zijn boeken en toeristen informatie aanwezig over Amsterdam en omgeving. Supermarkt, restaurantjes, cafeetjes is allemaal vlakbij.

De zeer vriendelijke gastheer en gastvrouw, Frank en Angela, zijn altijd bereikbaar en gaven goede informatie vooraf m.b.t. vervoer naar het apartement. In werkelijkheid is het apartment mooier als de foto’s kunnen weergeven. Leuke, kunstzinnige inrichting die het apartment een persoonlijke uitstraling geven. Ruim opgezet, schoon, en alles is aanwezig voor een comfortabel verblijf. Het beste is alle boten die de hele dag voorbij komen. Leuk vertier, terwijl het in de flat rustig is en heerlijk om te ontspannen na een drukke dag. De bedden zijn comfortabel. Wifi werkte ook perfect.

Ikzelf woon in de VS en vond het heerlijk om met mijn gezin voor korte tijd een echt thuishonk te hebben in Amsterdam.

My family of four (myself and spouse, plus kids ages 11 and 17) stayed in Frank and Angela's apartment for 5 days and it was absolutely perfect. Frank was such a friendly, hospitable, and incredibly helpful host. He even went out of his way to help me with an unexpected travel issue. The apartment is lovely, clean, and well-maintained. The area is perfect, especially if you want a convenient location that is away of the craziness of the central city area. Frank and Angela have several bicycles available which they encourage their guests to use - and we did. We loved cycling around this beautiful city and seeing it from the viewpoint of a local Amsterdammer. The apartment afforded us everything we needed in terms of space, cooking facilities, location, and a beautiful view. My parents (avid cyclists) are hoping to travel to Amsterdam sometime in the future and I've already told them that they simply MUST stay at Frank and Angela's property.
