Me and my wife started with our own bed and breakfast on a houseboat in 1998, in the South part of Amsterdam. It was a great success, and because of that we also created an online bookings site for other houseboat owners. We loved to received guests on board and to see how they enjoy nature as well the excitement of a world capital.
Since that time, more and more houseboat owners started to rent out their boats, first only B&B's, but later entire boats. Houseboats are everywhere in Amsterdam and you have always a top A location. Not on the 8th floor of a hotel, but always direct on the ground floor, watching canalboats and lots of other funny ships from the locals themselves. We live always on the boats, also in wintertime.
The boats have modern central heating systems. When there is ice and skaters, it's so much fun, to get out the boat and step directly on the ice. Or to serve hot chocolate from your window to the skaters. And when it is warm, to open the windows and feet the geese and ducks or sit outside with a bottle of wine near an open window or on a deck.
Amsterdam is a capital city with musea like Rijksmuseum, van Gogh, Hermitage, Anna Frank. The centre is round, in the middle you find the Damsquare. It's not very large and you can reach most interesting places by footh. There is also excellent public transport. There is plenty to do and see, lots of caf'e's and restaurants. But we noticed, that our guests like the houseboats so much, that they stay most of the time on board, to wave to other people that passing by!
