You will have the entire studio/apartment for yourself, it includes a toilet, bathroom and kitchen together with bikes and PT-cards. Everything in the apartment is yours to use: food, coffe/tea, breakfast stuff etc...
Most of the stuff in the apartment is of the highest quality like the solid oak floor, washing machine, fridge, record player etc... I would like you to treat everything with respect and care. f.i. the vinyl collection is very valuable. You are allowed to play them, but only if you properly take them out of the cover holding them correctly and dusting them before you play them, I've made a little howto manual for this ;)
- no shoes in the evening ( I provide clean slippers)
This is my own house, so most likely I will not be in Amsterdam when you stay over, you might need to get the keys from my friend Daisy or the lovely next door neighbours.
I come from a physics background but rolled into software programming, I like music and try to play a lot of instruments. I love cooking vegetarian food. I saved up money so I can stop programming, travel and make music, meanwhile I take on little jobs here and there. I live in the apartment above the vondelpark-studio, This studio is the house of my neighbour and friend Massimo, who now lives in new york. We only rent this out so my friend can pay the mortgage. We are very proud of the beautifully equipped apartment we offer.
