Unique experience staying on a houseboat, the true Amsterdam way.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived earlier than expected. Sander was very accommodating in meeting us, allowing us to get settled sooner. The houseboat was clean, on a quiet canal. It was supplied with everything we need. Since we had a car, we had to take quite a long way to receive a better car park price. This is inconvenient for those with vehicles. It was easy to take the ferry to City Center for the sightseeing we did. We walked to a market not far from houseboat for our shopping. We enjoyed our stay on the houseboat & would do this again. The narrow winding stairway to bedrooms & bathroom would not work for many. We left our bigger luggage upstairs. Thank you Sander & family for sharing your houseboat with us.

Great property to enjoy the city center, but a quiet place to sleep

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property. Sander was great to deal with. He met us at the designated time and went over everything. He even included some places in the area to eat, things to do.

It was about a 10 to 15 min walk to the ferry (free ferry) to the central train station in the city center.

Everything was as described,great stay.

Thanks Sander

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was great, very spacious, has everything you need.

10 minute walk to the boat that runs 24hr to central station.

Supermarket, coffee shop, restaurants all within walking distance.

No AC so it can get very warm up stairs, only a minor issue.

Would highly recommend.

We were very pleased with the houseboat.

  • 4 of 5

The boat is located in a residential area with a shopping area within a 10 minute walk. We found a very nice restaurant, SmaarQt. The accommodations were just as reported. The free ferry to the city was a 10 minute walk.

Don't miss out on this wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, serene, and beautiful. What an amazing experience we had staying at this property. The houseboat is plenty big for our family of four. The bedrooms were nice sized, and had plenty of storage. The bathroom is huge! Upstairs, the kitchen comes equipped with top of the line appliances including a freezer. We cooked several meals, and we never lacked for any kitchen utensil. The living room was comfortable and it was nice having a few English speaking television stations for the kids. Speaking of kids, they couldn't of had more fun feeding "Jimmy" the resident swan. Don't let this great place slip by you!

Our fantasy home in Holland

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here (me, my husband and 2 kids (age 5 and 14) last week, and we were so happy with the whole experience. Sanders greeted us at the houseboat and showed us around the place (even though we arrived later in the evening). We were instantly charmed by place.

The houseboat is immaculately clean and so beautifully decorated. Everything is so thoughtfully laid out and it felt like our own home. The bathroom is amazing and has the best round tub which the kids loved for their nightly baths! The bedrooms were so sweet and the beds were comfortable and a great size for all of us.

We were so comfortable and enjoyed feeding the ducks off the patio and just exploring the town on Noord. I have been to Amsterdam but not this part of the city, and it's really a nice alternative for families. It's an easy ferry ride to the business of the city center, but then you get home to this idyllic quiet setting in Noord. We explored and found the best bakery (Bakkerszonnen) and all kinds of little treats nearby. Staying here is a really great way to get the best of both worlds for Amsterdam.

I would 100% recommend this rental and hope to come visit again next summer!

Located in a quiet residential area. It's a 10 minutes walk to the free ferry (runs 24 hours a day) which takes you in a couple of minutes straight to the Central station right in the middle of the city. From here all the major attractions of Amsterdam like the Anne Frank House, van Gogh museum etc. are easy to reach by bus or tram. The best way is however to rent bikes to move around like the locals.
