Answers

Man, It is really really hard to find a place to rent in Amsterdam for six weeks, especially during the summer. It really depends on what you are looking for and how much you are willing to pay. The best suggestion I can give you is to go to a hostel for the first few days, and spend them trying to find a solution in person talking to people and housing agencies.
Rent in the Netherlands is not actually that expensive, but short stay housing usually is. I can only suggest you a few sites where you might be able to find something suitable. In any case, it is MUCH MUCH faster and easier to call directly (although maybe a bit more expensive on the call) rather than writing an e-mail.

This website has 20-30% discounts in the summer months.
This might be a better option, for a better value short term rental...
