About Your Hosts

Sharing and giving back

Hi there, Paul and Karen here, thank you for your interest and time.

Our story started in the hotel and accommodation sphere some time ago, and, as you can see, we never really left. Just like we did not leave magical Amsterdam. Loving to share and being passionate hosts, it has been our pleasure to welcome guests to our apartments/studios (as well as our BnB “Bed & Breakfast Amsterdam”) in Amsterdam for more than 2 decades. The whole Team of Apartments Amsterdam would love to welcome you!

We feel that giving back is important. We are commited to good causes and are active in different charity projects, feel free to read more about them below.

Hope to hear from you soon!

Giving Back

We support people, companies and non profits who want to make a positive difference in the world, helping them use their resources in the most effective way.

The Ligaya
Foundation

We set up this foundation to provide ‘effective’ financial support for continued studies for girls in the Philippines.  The girls we support are extremely motivated and their families are checked to make sure they really cannot afford to pay for further education.  We also try to ensure that the choice of study suits them and will enable them to get a good job, so that they can help support their own families.
At the moment we have 18 scholars.

Angel Investors

We are part of the Angel Investors Network. Our mission is to create and support a network of smart and sensitive people who want to make a positive difference for the world. All with the aim of strengthening and supporting people, non-profits or companies that want to make their own positive difference for the world.

We provide coaching and a personal Clifton Strengths Assessment. We would like to get your strengths (and weaknesses) to the surface and build from there – by providing a really effective way to reach your personal and/or company goals.

Karen McCusker
Business Mentor

As a successful entrepreneur and Business Coach, I am at the stage that I want to give back by supporting and/or coaching people and non-profit organisations, who themselves want to make a positive difference in the world.

I work with a strengths based method, so my expertise is moving people towards success and making sure that it will make them happy when they get there.  Planning and time management are a part of that.

If you are here for an extended period of time I would like to  invite to work with me during your stay.  My sessions are per hour, done in the intimacy of my home within the B&B.  My fee is normally 150 euro per hour but if you are somebody who wants to make a positive difference in the world, I help for free.

The areas I can help with are:  Strategic Planning, Organisation, Time Management. I have a special talent for Sales and Marketing.  Basically I can see quite quickly what’s stopping you reaching the success you want to have and work with you on a plan to achieve that success.
