The stunning interiors are what drew us to this apartment (obviously). It's such a cool mix of quirky furniture and uber modern pieces. There's a large private garden, perfect for having breakfast outside before you get exploring the city. The location is great too, all the main spots are either a walk or a short bike ride away and it's right in the heart of the Jordaan area – plenty of lovely shops, cafes and restaurants to discover.

2. A very luxurious houseboat

This is a houseboat like nothing we have seen before! Just looks like a super cool, spacious flat. It's got a huge sundeck plus a couple of hammocks – fab if you get good weather – gorgeous interiors, bikes for getting around and the location is perfect. There's loads of great stuff in walking distance, include a place to swim in the harbour or rent paddle boards, and you could even walk into town or just pop on the tram. 

Sleeps: 2
Price: £144 per night

3. The most gorgeous studio apartment

Can we just move in here please? The styling in this Airbnb in spot on. The rustic vibes are perfect for a cosy, autumnal get away. There's a rooftop terrace too with amazing city views, and it looks like the perfect place for a sundowner. It's just a 15 minute walk into the centre of Amsterdam, or you could hop on the free ferry and be there in just three minutes.

Sleeps: 2
Price: £77 per night

4. And another one...

An equally gorgeous studio apartment. This one is probably a better choice if you are on the taller side, plus this sleeps four so good if you are going on a family trip (although just be aware one of the bedrooms is on a mezzanine level so not great for small kids). It's in the really cool De Pijp neighbourhood which is pretty central and near loads of museums and markets. Also a load of small space inspiration going on here we are definitely going to be pinching...

Sleeps: 4
Price:
£90 per night 

5. A cosy private room in a 16th century building

If there is just a couple of you and you are after a super trendy bolthole for your stay, this Amsterdam Airbnb is perfect. It's done up beautifully; some seriously Instagrammable interiors going on here. The bathroom is shared, but go look at the pictures! Again, that's going on your Instagram for sure. In terms of location, it's situated in the historical heart of Amsterdam just a few minutes walk from the lively Dam square and most of the key sites are also within walking distance.

Sleeps: 2
Price: £107 per night

How to become an Airbnb host

Let’s be honest. Holiday travel can be crowded, stressful, and most of all expensive. But you could possibly earn some of that money back with Airbnb. While you’re travelling out of town to visit relatives and friends, why not rent your empty room or home and maybe earn some extra money for the holidays? 

Becoming an Airbnb host is easy and creating a listing is always free. You’ll have the support of fellow hosts and Airbnb’s world-class customer service department to answer your questions along with lots of other tools to help you be successful. Airbnb may even cover your property up to a million dollars per stay in the unlikely event that an incident occurs. Airbnb gives you a chance to earn extra money by putting your unoccupied space to work  this holiday season.
