Perfect canal experience

  • 5 of 5

The location and layout of the boat was a perfect first time visit to Amsterdam. Enough space for four of us, two college age daughters and moms. Fantastic location to walk to most highlights in this beautiful city.

Best Morning Ever.

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly like the images and description. Great size for two people right on the water across the university. Were is quiet and can sit outside on the water and watch people cross the bridge and see the ducks. Morning breakfast is silent and peaceful with great view. Highly recommend it.

A great place to come home to after a day on the town or just to stay and relax all day

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat is located in a great location for bike or public transportation to all areas of the city. Everything you need is within walking distance. The house is stocked with everything needed to feel right at home. Communication with Sander before, during and after our stay was very easy. We found him to be very helpful and personable. Would definitely stay here again. A most excellent experience, PROOST !

Highly recommended property and location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days here and enjoyed every minute. The neighborhood is quiet and the houseboat is clean, well-equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed going out during the day, but also looked forward to spending "downtime" at the boat. It was relaxing to sit on the deck and watch the various ducks and other waterfowl, as well as boats of people going by in the canal. Sander gave us good instructions and a map of the area. Area recommendations: Hortus, Artis, the Plantage Restaurant, and Torino's Italian restaurant. Note for tall people: the shower has approx. 6' headroom.

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.
