3 night stay

Excellent accommodation. Freezing outside, nice and warm inside. Quiet area but close enough to Amsterdam's delights.

Houseboat heaven

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat was everything we needed for a very good stay in Amsterdam. Very clean, comfortable, well appointed and convenient for central Amsterdam. We tried both the Il Pecorino and Mount Everest restaurants locally which were both excellent. The supermarket was just a short walk for provisions. Sander, the owner was prompt in his response and helpful. Would recommend this property as good value for money.

Beautiful houseboat in quiet but central neighbourhood !

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this houseboat ! We were 2 couples and this was an ideal space for us . Large living room , kitchen and dining area upstairs , and 2 good sized bedrooms and a lovely big bathroom downstairs . There was a well equipped kitchen , and everything was spotlessly clean . The living room is very bright with marvelous views and we loved sitting in the evening enjoying the peace of the canal . It was a bit too cold to enjoy the deck and balcony , but that would be perfect in finer weather .

It was a simple 10 minute walk to the ferry ( and there is a Ferry every 5 minutes !) and just a few minutes across the water to Centraal Station . Really easy !! We have been to Amsterdam many , many times , and this was our most relaxing visit ever ! We loved returning to the peace and tranquility of this neighborhood each evening . The boat is in the Noord district , with grocery stores nearby . Also some good restaurants . We went to Max's the first night for convenience, and it was excellent and very inexpensive .

The houseboat owner , Sander, was very helpful and responsive throughout , and I can thoroughly recommend his boat . In fact , we are in the process of planning another visit !!

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.
