Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful experience staying here. It was so great to sit on the deck for coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. Comfy bed and great location. We would certainly stay here again.

Perfect place to spend time in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

The other reviewers were not exaggerating. This place was perfect for us (2 adults and a 15 year old).

The houseboat view was amazing. The house and furnishings were very nice (though it could use a newer TV - but we did not really care about TV too much, other than World Cup). Nice collection of kitchen tools. Comfortable furniture. Even a great stereo and a collection of CDs.

Location was great for us - it is a bit of a walk from the center of town, if that is your focus - but Trams and Metro are 2 blocks away if you don't want to walk. a great grocery store 2 blocks away.

Management was very proactive, and he was fine with changing our arrival meeting time several times to accommodate problems with our train that caused us to arrive later than planned. We texted the expected delays, and the updated actual delays - and he had someone waiting at the houseboat when we arrived.

We will stay here again when we return.

My husband and I loved our stay, we're still dreaming about returning. It has everything you need to feel completely at home. Beautiful views and the deck is so relaxing, be prepared for lots of bird visitors! The neighborhood is awesome too, we liked a lot of the hosts restaurant recommendations. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Amsterdam magic

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat was a highlight of our Scandinavia trip. My family of 4 stayed there very comfortably for three nights. My two teenage daughters, husband and I had pleanty of room to spread out and sleep comfortably. The location was fantastic and easy for us to navigate. We have friends in Sweden that are heading to Amsterdam soon and from our pictures alone they are planning to stay there. Definitely the best rental we had on our trip.

Beautiful Houseboat located in the old part of Amsterdam. Easy to reach by public transport. Close to major attractions like the Botanical Garden, The Zoo, Hermitage Museum, Waterloo square, Rembrandt House, etc. Bars, restaurants and supermarket closeby. A lovely quiet location from which to explore Amsterdam and experience the feel of living on a houseboat.
