Great property for a short stay. Everything you need and being a houseboat really adds something.

  • 4 of 5

I have given a 4 star rating and it might have been 5 except that on day 1 we had our car broken into outside the property. Obviously that sort of messed up our short stay a bit especially as this was on Christmas Eve and I had to find a company to put in a new windscreen (Carglass were excellent - hope you don't need them). The repairers said that foreign plated cars are targeted and suggested having some dutchplates to stick on when you park and leave parcel shelf back to show there is nothing in there. Also said Amsterdam east is notorious for break ins and we gather this is not the only time outside the property. Moved it across to a residential area for rest of stay and no problems.

Apart from the property was spot on and great access to the city with nearby trams.

Unique, competitively priced lodging

  • 4 of 5

Cozy, comfortable houseboat apartment with parking in a great part of the city at a price better than many hotels in the same neighborhood.

Incredible, convenient, and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat was comfortable, clean, and homey. Four of us stayed in the houseboat in September 2017 and we did not feel crowded. Waking up and looking out the window to see the ducks right outside the window was such a peaceful way to wake up. Loved it.

The location was perfect. A short walk over the canal brought us to Tram 14 which, took us to Dam Square, Rembrandt Square, or Central Station All within 15 minutes. Just down the road is the windmill brewery and a good restaurant S&W (Schnitzel & Weitzel). The best pretzel bread cheese sandwich, apple streusel (tastes like Christmas), and a delicious chicken and avocado sandwich.

I look forward to returning to Amsterdam and will stay in the houseboat if there is availability. It was perfect.

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!
