Tranquil houseboat close to everything
My family of four with two kids ages 10 and 12 loved staying here. Four days was too short to soak in the calm of the houseboat. The house is modestly furnished and was very spacious for us. The only downside was for the first two days there was strong mildew fumes in the bathroom, which appeared to be clean. The smell seemed to come up through the pipes. On the third day it lessened. Still, we loved staying here--calm but close to so much--and we would again. Staying on a houseboat in Amsterdam is the best!
We had a lovely time
We loved this place. Spacious. In a really quiet location. The boat was warm. The beds and pillows were really comfy. The kitchen had everything we needed. The shower was lovely and warm. The TV worked perfectly. The wireless was excellent. We had a place for breakfast just around the corner and a supermarket 5 minutes walk away. We walked everywhere as there are so many nice places around. I would recommend this to anyone and would love to come back.
Mario was a great host. It was really easy to check in and he provided details on the best way to get there as well as eating recommendations. When we asked for a taxi recommendation, he got back to us within a minute.
Wonderful, tranquil and a great experience
Mario was reasonably responsive and polite and helpful in our communications. A friend of Mario's met us late at night to check in and this person was also very friendly and helpful through our interactions. My mother and I stayed in this houseboat for four nights during the end of April, each in our own bedroom. The houseboat is very well equipped, though we didn't do any of our own cooking. It was very warm inside (so much that it may get quite overly warm in summer). Perhaps there is cooling...?
Our favourite part was sitting or standing by the open windows interacting with the ducks and geese who swam by as well as all the boaters on the sunny afternoons. We loved the little canal that this houseboat is on, with pretty views and close to pubs, cafes and lovely nearby restaurants.
It was very easy 10 minute walking to the museum area. Trams all nearby as well. There is a cosy lived in feel to the place, not shiny and new!
Very enjoyable. Thank you.
Fantastic accommodation in an idyllic location
Wonderful experience on Mario's houseboat, with picturesque surroundings that provided an extremely pleasant stay. The accommodation was perfect in satisfactorily meeting needs and the helpful service provided was much appreciated, which facilitated a smooth trip and stay in Amsterdam. Definitely will be returning and hopefully back to this property. Thank you Mario for an enjoyable stay in Amsterdam, highly recommended.
This boat is warm and comfortable and has everything needed.
The location is great there are bars and cafes nearby and a handy supermarket.
Marco's recommendations are really helpful. I would suggest a visit to vondel park & perhaps hire a bike. Also a visit to the nearby stables was very pleasant.
It was a very nice place. Near the city center. It was warm inside the boat house.
Do not hesitate to try it! The owner was very hospitile.
