i was reluctant to book a house boat but it was clean and modern loved the whole experience! highly recommend if you looking for privacy and a different experience. 10 minute walk to free ferry that takes you to central station.

Ideal place to stay if you have been to Amsterdam before and are looking for something different.

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, cosy and with a quirky charm.

My grandfather lives in a converted railway carriage and this one time ferry felt very similar to me.

It's situated in a quiet part of town, but less than a half hour walk away from the centre of town.

Sander the host was exemplary.

Wonderful place to stay in Amsterdam.

  • 5 of 5

The boat was very comfortable for my husband and I and our two adult children. Though there is a door between the bedrooms, it is a bit like sharing a room, but that is not really a problem. We enjoyed the quiet area would definitely come back again. There is only one small bathroom, but we managed just fine. We very much appreciate having a "home base" for our family to relax, rest, and gather together without being separated into different hotel rooms. We also very much like eating some meals in, and grocery shopping is another great way to experience the culture. There is a stovetop and a microwave/convection oven. We had a small issue with lights and Sander had it repaired for us before we returned to the boat in the afternoon. We were very happy with the management and lodging!

Travel to and from Amsterdam city center is easy and quick, about 20 minutes. The ferry is very easy and convenient. There is a 10 mninute walk to the ferry, but there is a bus to shorten the walk if you time it correctly. We pulled our luggage from the airport, onto the train, ferry and walked to the boat and it was not an issue. Get an all day/multi day tram/bus/metro pass. Trains are a separate ticket.

Lovely property ideal for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 3 nights, it was ideal for us as it was close to the centre (a very short walk) but far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle of the centre.

I would definatley recommend staying here and hopefully look forward to staying again in the future.

Great Home for an Amsterdam City Break

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for a city break in Amsterdam - the houseboat is lovely, really comfortable and well-equipped, while offering a fun alternative to staying in hotels right in the city centre. It's about a 15 minute walk from the ferries to Centraal Station, so close enough to be convenient, while offering a relatively quiet neighbourhood to return to after the excitement of the city. The ferries to Centraal run so frequently you never really have to wait. The surrounding neighbourhood also has a few restaurants and shops within a relatively short walk (5-10 mins), Noorderpark for some greenery, and the EYE film museum is on the walk back to the ferry. Overall, great place to stay.

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.
