I am coming to Amsterdam in Sept for one month and I'm trying to find an apartment to rent for the whole month. If anyone has any leads or any friends looking to sublet their apartment for the month, please let me know. It's starting to get really frustrating and I'm not sure what to do. HELP!!!! My friend and I are two actors from NYC looking to take some R&R in Holland. Any help would be great
Check kamernet.nl. They're cheap and reliable; I believe the interface comes in English as well as Dutch. Finding a place for just one month is not too hard; stay away though from companies like DirectWonen, they're a complete rip-off. If nothing else works, consider checking the bulletin boards in supermarkets on arrival; there's usually some apts advertised there as well.
This also looks like a helpful site:
(Onderhuur = Sublet)
If you're not tied to Amsterdam, and you're looking for a (lively) smaller city, you could also try places like Maastricht or Groningen, which are generally a bit cheaper.
Good luck and have fun in the Netherlands!
Radigga, organise, organise and organise, I found an apartment 90 square meters on ww.renters.nl for only 500 euro a month, just five minutes walk from the Amsterdam central station. Just call 0641123512 and make a reservation, make sure they send you a proper reservation bill by email with the exact address and amenities of your apartment. Do not ever pay in advance any rental company that is not properly registrated. As a foreigner you may be horribly fu***d in advance. The fact is, that there aren’t so many reasonable priced apartments in Amsterdam. Try www.citymundo.com, www.alexandersapartments.com, The best thing is to rent a apartment in city Zaandam, and travel 5 minutes by train to Amsterdam, only then you will save 50 % of the rental price in Amsterdam. I do have for an example a 4 level fully furnished house with 4 bedrooms garden and garage on a yacht port in the city of Zaandam for 2000 euro a month. In Amsterdam this will be at least 4000 euro a month. So if you want to save money stay in Zaandam in a cheaper apartment. Depending on your budget you may concider a budget hotel or apartment, for 500 euro a month booked in advance from www.tripadvisor.com. Good luck and be wise to book in advance.
