In love with an Amsterdam houseboat

  • 5 of 5

I'm really happy we chose to stay on a houseboat for our travel to Amsterdam. It's a real experience and and has a very specific charm I would not have liked to miss. It's naturally a bit tighter and not as spacious as an apartment, but on the other hand it's so cosy that you don't miss the additional space at all. The owner's son was also a great help and provided us with plenty of insider tips where to eat and how to get along the city with public transportation. Thank you ever so much for having us!

Incredible experience!

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful experience in Houseboat Vertrouwen, with a great kitchen and living room which contains a smartTV and a powerful stereo. The only negative aspect of this boat is the absence of windows in the bedrooms: without windows we were not able to recycle the air during the night.

Wonderful house boat!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here, good area close to the tram and many restaurants and grocery stores. Also a great market!!

The house boat had all you need, comfortable bed and nice kitchen.

And the owner Coleta was great, full of information on fun things to do and how to get around. Would definitely stay here again.

Great holidays on a houseboat

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay on the houseboat Vertrouwen. It was exactly as described, very comfortable. It is very well located, a few minutes from the tram station, 10 min from the city centre by bike. Coleta was very nice and gave us a lot of tips to have a good time in Amsterdam. If you're looking for an original place in Amsterdam this is the place you need!

Unique experience with kids

  • 5 of 5

For our stay in Amsterdam with our two children (6 and 3 years), we wanted a playful experience adapted to their needs.

We found the Coleta houseboat and its wonderful sense of hospitality. Everything was up to our expectations: life on a boat, its ideal location in the city center or the journeys are made naturally by bike. The special feeling of being both in nature and in the city is a unique experience.

The weather was sometimes dull but Amsterdam is also seen in the rain!

The simple and typical houseboat is ideally equipped and the children have appreciated to the right extent the two booths that served as bedrooms.

Coleta is a precious host with a sense of welcome and conviviality that makes you want to come back.

The houseboat is located in a family friendly area on one of the best spots on the river Amstel in the Quartier Latin of Amsterdam, called De Pijp and is just a 10 to 20 minutes walk to most tourist attractions like the Rijksmuseum, the Heineken Experience, the Hermitage, RAI congress centre, the old centre of Amsterdam, one of the nicest shopping area’s of Amsterdam called “Utrechtsestraat” and lots of good restaurants.

Janna has just been renovated end of 2010 (bathroom end of 2011), contains a tastefully decorated and comfortable apartment of almost 60 square meter with a private entrance. In this lovely ambiance you will be warmly welcomed by your hostess, Coleta. She knows Amsterdam by heart and can help you find your way around town.

At arrival she will provide you with a list of “must sees” in Amsterdam and surroundings.

Janna is a non-smoking apartment, there are no pets allowed and
