Wonderful charming houseboat!

We immediately fell in love with the Prinsenboat due to its lovely charm and perfect location. It was quite clean. The owner Peter met us when we checked in and was very helpful and accommodating to our early check-in arrival. The boat has everything one needs to be warm, clean and comfortable. The shower had good hot water, and the kitchen has everything one needs to prepare a meal. The bed is large and very comfortable. In addition, the location was brilliant; right on the Prinsengracht, and also on a street that had lots of great little restaurants and shops and also nearby the Rembrandtplein. We would definitely return, and also would highly recommend the houseboat to couples, perhaps with a child, or singles on a getaway.

Loved it~

I loved my stay. I was welcomed with a bottle of wine and fresh roses, zinnias and tulips, of course. The location was safe and convenient. The houseboat was comfortable and everything I needed. I would most certainly recommend this as a place to stay whilst in Amsterdam. My favorite memory was a beautiful swan swimming by in the dark. Wish I had gotten a pic.

This was our second stay on the Prinsenboat. The boat is perfect for our needs and well-maintained. The bed is super-comfortable! The kitchen is well-equipped. Linens and towels are supplied. Peter has always been very responsive to our questions. Beautiful views of the canal and boat traffic passing by. The location cannot be beat! Literally 10-15 minutes walk to everywhere you would want to be in Amsterdam. Also conveniently located right at the tram stop for line 4. Nice restaurants and shops are close by. There is a grocery store a block away. If you are looking for mini-bars, maid service and room service, this is not your place. If you are looking for a private, cozy, well-located, beautiful houseboat...this is the place! We will be back again in 2015!
Owner's Response: Dear Guests,

Thanks for the great review. We look forward to having you back next year!!

Best regards, Peter

One of The Best Kept Secrets In Amsterdam!!!!

So after a crazy year coupled with the madness of Christmas, my partner and I decided to leave the children behind and sneak of to the Dam for a romantic break - which loosely translated equates to, two nights of undisturbed sleep!

The pièce de résistance of this accommodation is the ‘Bed’. Not sure what size it is, as I wasn’t aware of anything bigger than King - but the bed on the Prisenboat is huge and extremely comfortable. No duvet-tug-of-war on this trip! That coupled with the dark mahogany furniture, made this boat so aesthetically pleasing. It had real warmth and almost rustic feel to it.

We visit Amsterdam regularly mostly staying in hotels. However we wanted to relax and be able to come and go at our leisure.
The Priesenboat surpassed our expectations.

Firstly it is in a great location, really easy to get to. It was New Years Day and late into the evening when we arrived so on this occasion we opted for a cab. However next time we would do, what we normally do and take a train from the airport into Amsterdam Central and jumped on the tram, number 4, I think and it literally stops outside the front door.

The boat itself is lovely. My main concern at this time of year was the cold but I needn’t have worried as the boat is centrally heated –and it works!

The bathroom is small but clean and the shower works tremendously.

It has everything you could need in order to self cater: Microwave, Hob, Fridge - no oven – but that’s not necessary just worth remembering when you go food shopping.

The kitchen is well equipped with utensils, pots pans etc. What was nice was that guest left what they didn’t use i.e. fresh coffee, sugar, washing up liquid etc.. nice touch and saved you some money. There are however two supermarkets within walking distance.

If you don’t feel like cooking there are an array of restaurant on the high street, out of the front door turn right, turn right again and take your pick! Or you can jump the tram to pretty much anywhere. Brilliant!

All in all, I think I can honestly say that this was our best stay in Amsterdam to date! For us it was absolutely perfect - a short romantic break. I would however imagine it would be equally as fun if you were a family and took the kids – something we are considering next.

Point to note – The owner was thoroughly charming throughout the booking process and we looking forward to booking with you again.

Sweet slumber so close to EVERYTHING!

We stayed at Peter Woundstra's "Prinsenboat" in December 2013 for 7 nights. (Don't get confused with another boat claiming this name. There is only one Prinsenboat near the Prinsengracht tram station.)The neighborhood is sweet and quiet yet hip, with lovely little boutiques, delis, brown cafes, restaurants, and bars. I have been to Amsterdam many times but this was the best location I've ever stayed.
The boat itself looks unassuming from the outside, but who stays in a hotel only to look at it from the outside?! The key is being inside this cozy place. You feel like you're in a different world. The windows are bigger than some boats. Like true locals we opened our curtains and dined in at dusk with lovely lighting and watched a few tour boats pass, waving at us. The swans, ducks and other birds came to eat our leftover bread. The kitchen was well-stocked with pans, utensils, etc. and there is an Albert Heijn store just a block away to buy food to cook.The wifi worked GREAT, the tv offered a large variety of European channels in every language.
The beautiful bed is so comfortable. After traveling in the Netherlands for 5 weeks, this was our last stop and the best rest of the trip.
Peter is a wonderful host. His daughter welcomed us upon arrival and let us know that she would be a phone call away if we needed anything.
On future trips, I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else and I plan to share this sweet place with all of my friends, family and colleagues.
Thank you Peter! Your Prinsenboat is truly special.
