Perfect vacation spot for couples or small family!

Houseboat Santa Cruz was a great decision for our vacation to Amsterdam. The houseboat was clean, organized, and in a great location. It gave off such a charming vibe and really made us feel a at home. It was perfect for our family of three..2 adults 1 infant. Lukas was great to deal with, although I wish his responses were a bit quicker. He was gracious and welcoming when we arrived, even bringing us a bottle of wine! We did not feel rushed to get out at the end of our stay either. We loved our mini holiday and would stay here again. A perfect way to enjoy a beautiful city!

Amsterdam Gem but ...........

  • 4 of 5
Couldn't be a better location. A short walk to grocery store to stock up your kitchen / laundromat / bakeries / restaurants. 10 min. walk to Amsterdam Centraal. Houseboat is nicely appointed with all the amenities but ........ there are deficiencies that need to be addressed. Lukas, the owner, pointed out these issues when we arrived - the leaky toilet / loose kitchen faucet. He made it seem like it was no big deal, but when you go to use the washroom and find yourself standing in a puddle of water, it is a big deal. Another annoyance was the sticky kitchen cupboard doors - had to use a kitchen knife to pry the magnetic closure to release and open. Maybe a visit by a handyman would clear these problems up in a day (they obviously accumulated over time and have never been addressed). After arriving we contacted Lucas to meet at the boat. Being new to the city and carrying luggage, the 10 min. walk became 30 min. When we reached the boat, Lukas was annoyed that we took 20 min. longer and made it known that he was now late for an appointment. Made us feel unwelcomed - an attitude adjustment is in order when dealing with his clients, especially ones new to the city. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in the houseboat and would choose it over a hotel. Other than the aforementioned, our vacation experience in Amsterdam was a very positive one. Loved it!!!

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry and ashamed you feel this way. Since the boat was booked throughout, there hasn't been an opening for the handyman to come in and take care of everything. Since we considered the deficiencies were slight, I assumed the discomfort of a plumber/handyman in your holiday home, would be greater than the discomfort of the initial deficiencies. It seems I was wrong and I will take care of it immediately.

Furthermore I would like to apologize for the fact I made you feel unwelcome. This was not the case at all.The appointment I was late for was very important and I guess my nerves got the better of me. Obviously this was very unprofessional of me and I will definitely take it in consideration.

We want you to have good memories of the boat, so I'll send you an email to see if we can work something out. Maybe we can make it up to you, in some way or another.

Rocky Start - Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
The owner was hard to get a hold of - multiple emails and phone calls to arrange to get the keys were not returned until we were already in Amsterdam looking for the boat. Apart from a rocky start it turned out to be a great home away for us.

The location is fantastic. The bed, linens and towels were high quality (though no shower curtain?!?). The space is well organized and appointed. My small bed fears from the pictures on the website went away the first night and I looked forward to my cozy bedroom retreat every evening.

Lack of wifi is strange for any rental these days. Owner has very dated pc connected to internet for guest use but no wifi. We found free wifi for our phones, tablet and laptops in the area anyway.

Owner quickly fixed cable tv reception when we called without missing a beat.

While the couch in the living room folds out to a bed, the place would be really small for three people or two people who are not sleeping together. Perfect for a couple.

A few glitches but everything else was better than expected. 5 stars.

Great houseboat in a great location

  • 5 of 5
We've spent a wonderful weekend in the lovely houseboat located in Jordaan, in the center of Amsterdam. We could go walking to every interesting sights.
The houseboat is very comfortable and full of many details that made us feel us very welcome. Unforgetable the moment we spent at the terrace eating a snack and drinking the wine provided by the owner. We enjoyed saying hello to the boats full of friendly people sailing along the channel while we watched the several swams and ducks swimming. It was a very beautiful picture that we'll keep in our minds for ever.
We will for sure recomend it to our friends. And we hopefully will return someday

Houseboat Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Amsterdam, only made better by our stay on the houseboat Santa Cruz. The location couldn't have been better -- set in the beautiful Jordaan neighborhood, near excellent pubs and restaurants and within walking distance to the train station. The houseboat is very well-appointed (i.e., Nespresso coffeemaker, stocked kitchen, spacious bathroom) and the bed is incredibly comfortable. Our host Lukas was also very nice and accommodating. Highly recommended! We plan to return!
