Stay with the world's most famous madame(ex) Mar 07, 2011
I was planning an anniversary trip in Amsterdam in '06. I tried booking canal boats more than a year in advance not realizing world cup was in Germany that year. Needless to say all canal boats had been booked almost two years out. After searching links pages for days I ran across Xaviera's place.

Now, if you for some reason have never heard of Xaviera Hollander you are either quite young or lived in isolation for 30+ years. If either of those things is the case look her up. She wrote a now famous book titled the Happy Hooker and a couple others. She was a madame in New York who was banned from the states after a very public trial many years ago.

My mom and many women who were coming of age in the 60's and 70's read her book. Xaviera played a vital role in the womens' movement. Giving many women the notion that life might have more to offer than bearing children and homemaking. Not all of Xaviera's past endeavors would be considered acceptable by many.

If you're not one of the many I think you would dig her place. We stayed in the "Garden Chalet" which is positioned within the walls of her eclectic property. We couldn't have asked for a better reception upon arrival. It's in a perfect location close enough to be convenient to Amsterdam's pleasures but far enough from the city center and red light to offer charming, relaxing environs.

I can't think of a more appropriate hostess for Amsterdam than Xaviera as she's quite the local celebrity. It's not the cheapest but the memories we have from that trip were worth 3x the price paid. Our stay coincided with her birthday(and mine). I don't know if it's every year but she held a party in her backyard (our front yard) that was a blast. Her guest list included many artists, musicians and other unique international characters. There was live music, spoken word and other impromptu entertainment all day.

I can't speak highly enough about her and her staff. we felt as if we were with family the entire time and can't wait to stay with her again.
What better place to make home bas…
