Perfect way to enjoy Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay on the house boat immensely, It was the perfect place to stay whilst in Amsterdam.

The house boat is located close to the center of town (10 min walk), AH Supermarket (2 min walk), Cafes and Restaurants (30 second walk across the road).

Even though it was close to all these places it was peaceful, quiet and the perfect place to come home to and relax after a big day of exploring.

We loved waking up every morning with our coffee to the beautiful view of the canal, waving to the people in their boats and feeding the ducks from the balcony.

We were fortunate enough to meet Meredith (the owner) who was absolutely lovely. Meredith left a 'welcome' book with information about the area and transport that came in very handy (We saved 20 euro on a taxi to the airport using the suggestion from the welcome book) along with instructions on how to operate everything contained with in the houseboat.

The houseboat was spotless upon arrival and maintained by Sander who was a pleasure to deal with. Sander made sure everything ran smoothly and there were no issues.

We would love to stay on the boat again if we ever return to Amsterdam and would recommend it to anyone. We loved it so much that we almost shed a tear when the time came to leave as it had truly become our home during our stay.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5
A terrific houseboat on a quiet, clean canal away from the noisy city center. Roomy for 2 people --- good-sized kitchen and pictures windows in the main room let in the outside view. Comfy bed! Places to eat nearby and an especially good bakery with perfect croissants. A family of coots visited us from their nest every day. Would definitely stay here again.

a breathtaking retreat in the middle of Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5
We had stayed on a houseboat last year on the busy Amstel, and we were looking for a different experience when we chose the Meremaid on the Niewe Prinsengracht. Boy, did we get it. The boat is a naturalistic paradise, where birds of many species congregate and welcome you to the neighborhood on your little balcony. Meredith is a gracious host,and the boat comes with all the homey touches you rarely get anywhere else - the kitchen is great for cooking, the bed is comfortable, there's plenty of storage space, and the view onto the canal is mesmerizing, day and night. The only problem with the Meremaid is that you might not want to leave it to explore Amsterdam! Can't say enough good things - one of the favorite places my wife and I have ever stayed!

Perfect for family weekend i Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5
Small and cozy houseboat with everything you need for a long weekend in Amsterdam. Perfect for 2 adults and 2 children. Located within walking distance to everything, both the metro, tramp, shopping, harbor with Nemo and Zoo. A simple boat, but furnished with everything you need, it is well-maintained and clean. There is a beautiful view up the canal and every morning there is visited by ducks, geese and swans who judges whether a bite to eat. Our best recommendations.

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.
