A fantastic way to experience Amsterdam!

  • 5 of 5

Coleta and her son were super accommodating and made themselves available for our family our entire stay! The houseboat was clean and the space was incredibly efficient for our family of 5! The kitchen was limited on supplies but we were able to do some very basic cooking and enjoyed local restaurants often, which there are plenty of in walking distance. The major sites are a bit of a walk with little kids but we rented bikes on our last day which Coleta helped us with and it was perfect! Amsterdam is an amazing place to visit and it was fantastic to experience this on a houseboat on the river! When our kids went to bed in the evening, my husband and I were able to sit rooftop and enjoy the evenings on the water! Thank you Coleta!

Great place to visit Amsterdam in 4 people

  • 5 of 5

Houseboat Vertrouwen is fantastic and exactly how you can see on photos with some interesting plus: large dining room, mega smart TV, hifi system, WiFi connection, height above 2 meters.

Coletta and her family were like an ideal host have to be: their friendliness let us feel at home, gave us a lot of tips and they were ready to help us when our son had been sick.

We definitely recommend this accommodation if you want an houseboat experience.

Une belle expérience

  • 4 of 5

Habiter quelques jours sur une péniche était une expérience interessante pour nous , celle ci est ancienne, propre, aménagée avec tout ce qu'il faut pour un séjour à 4 (manque peut-être un lavabo). Nous avons été bien accueillis par les propriétaires et réponse rapide à toute question par mail . Le centre est accessible facilement en tram faisable à pied en 30 mn.

super séjour !

  • 5 of 5

très beau séjour en famille à Amsterdam le temps d'un long WE de Pâques. Un vrai plaisir de profiter le soir, après de belles journées bien remplies, de la péniche et son côté cocooning, tout en bois. très agréable. super accueil de Coleta, plein d'informations, très disponible.

Très belle location idéalement située

  • 5 of 5

Très belle location décorée avec goût et dotée de tous les équipements nécessaires

Cela a été un vrai plaisir de vivre dans cette péniche, qui plus est très proche du centre d'Amsterdam, qu'il est possible de rejoindre à pieds

Et pour couronner le tout, l'accueil et les précieux conseils de Coleta font que l'on ne peut que recommander chaudement cette location !
