Great location and owner

  • 4 of 5

Nice alternative to a hotel. Owner was very accommodating with our luggage for an early arrival. Easy bus ride from the central train station. (On day of arrival, discovered and used storage lockers there instead.) Great local restaurants a short walk away. Nice to stay on a canal. Train tracks nearby were annoying the first night but got used to it.

Beautiful Houseboat!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect and even cuter in person than shown in pictures! The houseboat is close the bus and tram stop making it easy to access the city. Everything was clean and in perfect order. Plenty of space in this well taken care of property. Thank you for letting us use your property!

A unique place to stay in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at one of the apartments on this houseboat for a few days while preparing to move to Amsterdam. It is small, fine for one or two people but would be crowded with more. It's definitely more interesting than a run-of-the-mill flat, and fun to be on the water with ducks and such swimming up to the windows. Two things to note: There is a washer for laundry but no dryer, and as others have noted the trains nearby are noticeable. It is conveniently located, within a few steps of both the bus stop and a tram stop, with shops a couple of blocks away. Overall, I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a few days in Amsterdam but does not need to be right in the center of town.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat was very nice inside. It was clean and had everything we need. There is a bus stop close by that will take you to the Central Station so it was very convenient. But, the trains passed by the area so it can be noisy though it didn't bother us. Overall, it was a good experience.

Amazing! We enjoyed a lot!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. The boathouse was cool, we wanted something different and unique. We were 4 people coming for sensation white and we were looking something between Amsterdam arena and city center. Place was clean, everything working! Was a bit complicated to find a key as it was very dark when we got there but we managed! Hosts were very, very nice and allowed even to stay some hours extra. There was smart TV so we could listen music. ! We are all very happy that we have chosen this place! Thank you Yanna!
