Very charming and great location

  • 4 of 5

I recently stayed with my husband and 2 daughters and greatly enjoyed the houseboat. The highlight was being able to see the ducks and other beautiful birds right outside the window. The house was very clean and comfortable. It was incredibly hot (35 degrees) in Amsterdam the days we were there so the house boat was quite hot at night. However, as soon as I mentioned this, the owners quickly helped us out and got us a fan to help cool things down. The location was perfect, not too far from central Amsterdam, but far enough to avoid most tourist traffic. Great restaurants and grocery stores very close by. We would definitely stay here again.

Loved it.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful experience. It’s just as dicribed. It would be nice to have another mirror besides the one in the bathroom. We had four females. I would stay here again if I ever get back to Amsterdam.

Amazing Houseboat

  • 5 of 5

The Houseboat is located in a quiet area of Amsterdam not far from the city centre that you can easily reach by bus. We deeply enjoyed our stay and the lovely view of the canal. Just two things to note.

1 - to access the toilets you will have to pass through the bedroom. It means that if you are more than a couple renting the houseboat whoever will occupy the bedroom will have to accept the visits to the toilets of the other lodgers.

2 - if you open the windows the noise of the trains passing not too far is quite remarkable. That could be a problem if you are sleeping upstairs in the living room with the warm weather: you will have to choose in between silence or sweat!

All in all, it still deserves 5 stars out of 5 for its cleanliness and for the huge size of the Houseboat!

clean and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We stayed two nights on the houseboat. We did not have euros and they loaned us 20E to catch the tram! It was quiet and close to the tram line.
