We were really happy to experiment life in a houseboat! It was a great way to discover Amsterdam. The boat was really clean and comfortable and it was well located to discover the city. There are groceries just nearby. Coleta, the owner speaks perfectly French, she is really kind and gave us a lot of good advises. We warmly recomand this place for your stay in Amsterdam!
This houseboat is perfect for a 4 people family. Centrally located, 10 minutes bike from the nicest canals, 5 minutes from the Museums. Clean property, Coleta and her family are at your disposal for any specific question (they live close to the houseboat). We recommend this place to anyone interested in spending a few days in Amsterdam in a unique environment.
We enjoyed the experience of staying on a real Amsterdam boat, the Janna. The beds are very cozy and comfortable and the kitchen well equipped for easy meals. It was fun to sit on the deck and watch the activity at the canoe club across the river. It is a boat, so be prepared to get in & out via a ladder! We loved the neighborhood, very quiet, lots of nice shops and restaurants. It is quick and easy to get into the heart of busy Amsterdam via frequently running trams. Really glad we stayed in a residential neighbourhood rather than the hotel district. Stanley was an excellent host! This would be especially fun for a family.
We (two adults and two kids) have spent 4 days on the avontuur and enjoyed it very much! Nice old dutch "woonboot", well equiped (WiFi, TV, Microwave, Dishwasher, Shower and Bathtub, fresh Towels etc.). And also enough place to have a drink or coffee with friends on board!
Coleta and Stanley are very nice hosts and offer help when needed!
A place to recommend! We will be back!
I was with my family three nights on the houseboot "Avontuur"t.
Coleta was so friendly and the boat was so beautiful.
On my next trip to amsterdam I will definitely stay here again.
The houseboat is a great start point from which to explore the city.

Ein liebevoll eingerichtetes Hausboot mit allem was man für einen schönen Aufenthalt benötigt.
Großes "Wohnzimmer" mit Küche, eine kleine Toilette und eine Bad mit Dusche. Dazu noch zwei urgemütliche Schlafkojen.
Unschlagbar charmant, nett und hilfsbereit ist Coleta, die Vermieterin. Selten haben wir auf Reisen so jemand liebevolles kennen gelernt.
Wenn ihr eine Grachtenfahrt plant, unbedingt bei Coleta anfragen. Ihr Mann macht hin und wieder Touren, die individueller, länger und viel schöner sind als die Massenveranstaltungen. Wir hatten vier wunderschöne Tage in Amsterdam
