Great stay on a houseboat

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific three-night stay on Mario's houseboat; we were two senior couples. Mario greeted us and got us set up with everything we needed. This was our first stop after flying from Canada, and was perfect for overcoming jet lag and exploring the city on foot.

We spent lots of time watching boaters go by in the canal, it was great fun watching the people in all their different kinds of watercraft.

Lots of great dining and drinking within a couple of blocks.

Thanks Mario for a great start to our vacation.

Great place for family of 4

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four found this houseboat to be quite comfortable and a great place to stay. Everything was as we expected and Jorge was a gracious host giving lots of good local advice. Mario was kind enough to leave us some nice fresh fruit!

The neighborhood was very quiet and as other guests noted staying on the canal was a unique experience with ducks and boats passing quietly by. There is a nice cafe just few steps away which we went to.

We rented bicycles a couple blocks away and were able to ride around most of the city in couple of hours. We were walking distance from park and musuemplein. Great stay!

"Perfect location, neat, clean nice and quiet. Leidseplein is only 5 min walk and tram stations two blocks. Very friendly and helpful owner. Living in a boat is a different experience. Birds and ducks in the canal will be your neighbors."

"Had a great time in amsterdam, the accomodation was great, and as described. The area was very nice. everything was in working order, and was a nice change to try a houseboat over an apartment as I usually do. was quite amusing to peek out the blinds in the evening and see a group of swans and ducks peering in. slept perfectly, minimal noise."

"We had a great time. The houseboat had all the facilities needed for a city break, clean,cosy,comfortable and central for the sights. It was well equipped for self catering and alhough on a residential street was not at all noisy. The owner was very helpful with directions and the 'receptionist' was prompt and

friendly. Thank you for being so well organised."
