Travellers who choose holiday rentals over hotels look for that extra comfort that one gets when staying in a cosy private house or apartment, while homeowners letting their vacant property benefit from the extra income.

AmsterdamStay, one of the  oldest holiday rentals providers in the city, have been offering holiday properties for long enough to gain an invaluable insight into what both guests and owners need and tend to look for. Now the experts share their know-how and reveal why holiday apartments are so appealing to both locals and visitors.

The appeal of the holiday home

Hotels have long ceased to be the only providers of short-term leisure and business accommodation. The gradual rise in popularity of home swaps and couch surfing is proof of this trend.

Yet, travellers who value their stay usually want to get more out of it than a mere place to crash or sharing accommodation with a complete stranger. Discerning guests usually opt for a holiday rental that can offer them extraordinary comfort and privacy with a homey feel – from indulging in a proper meal in a modern kitchen, to the leisure of cozying up on a designer sofa in front of a flat screen TV and the tranquillity of sleeping in a quiet and clean bedroom.

All of this comes at prices no higher than hotel rates, yet guests get a lot more for their money. You can find more info about budget apartments on the credit crunch apartments (more info) and smoke friendly accommodation (more info)

AmsterdamStay’s motto is simple: live like a local. Lodging in a cosy, contemporary apartment during a holiday or business stay can eliminate a great deal of travel hassle and stress. What is more, Amsterdam’s charming historic houses add something extra special to the experience of staying in the city.

Helping visitors feel at home in Amsterdam, whatever their budget, lifestyle or special needs, has been the company’s goal since its inception. To this end the rentals provider has been working together with local owners of vacant properties to build an impressive portfolio of some of the most attractive houses and apartments in the city, offering guests a truly wide choice of accommodation options.

AmsterdamStay has redefined short-term accommodation by introducing numerous services that offer guests hotel-style customer care during self-catered stays.

Online access to virtual concierge support and the option to book additional services such as cleaning, laundry, airport transfers and taxi pickups around Amsterdam are available to guests who wish to be pampered. Soon customers will also be able to check in, collect their keys and leave their luggage at a physical check-in office, as part of a brand new check-in service.

Best of all, the rentals provider operates a no booking fee, no full prepayment policy that makes bookings and payments more flexible.

Turning your empty home into business

Letting your vacant home to Amsterdam visitors can be a real boost to your income, claim the holiday rental experts. Vacation apartments and private corporate housing have been growing in popularity, while the constant influx of leisure and business travellers to Amsterdam guarantees year-round demand. AmsterdamStay help owners to let their property in lucrative and hassle-free ways by taking step-by-step care of the entire letting process – from advertising, to upkeep and checking in guests when they arrive.

Picking services which the company can arrange on behalf of owners, such as cleaning, checking guests in, is one option available to hosts. Alternatively, busy owners who do not wish to be involved with the letting arrangements can park their property with the company, or in simpler words let the experts deal with the property management who prefer have their property occupied and bringing profit rather than keeping it vacant are welcome to contact the AmsterdamStay team with queries.
