Classic Amsterdam with Modern Amenities

  • 5 of 5

Doot and Sven were incredible hosts. Friendly and provided a perfect place to stay. The Watercradle has a comfortable king bed and a nice bath with a small kitchen. Convenient to Centraal Station and the main part of Amsterdam. Highly recommend it and them.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the watercradle. Everything looked exactly like the pictures. Doet welcomed us warmly and gave us some tips. We arrived early and she let us leave our luggage and go explore while the houseboat was cleaned. The bed was super comfortable and the space was very efficient with everything we needed. The lush down comforter and cool Amsterdam air made it difficult to get out of the cozy bed. The location was great. The bus was nearby and easy to navigate. The neighborhood was very quiet and comfortable. What a wonderful experience for our first trip to Amsterdam.

Stay on a Houseboat

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely place. Nicely updated. It is in an off the beaten path area so is super quiet. If you want a cafe right outside your door this is not for you!

Relaxing and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed on this cozy houseboat after spending a busy week in The Hague for a work conference and a quick trip to Switzerland. After spending long hours exploring Amsterdam, we looked forward to coming "home" to our houseboat for a peaceful and relaxing evening. The king-sized bed was very comfortable and I enjoyed waking up to the sounds of the birds outside. From the window and deck we watched the birds and enjoyed the water view. The bathroom is modern and comfortable. The small kitchen was well-equipped and perfect. On our first night, we arrived early in the evening and I asked Doet to recommend a nearby restaurant for dinner. She made reservations at one of her favorite restaurants. We had a great meal to start off our Amsterdam adventure. There is also market nearby and also tram and bus stops. By foot, we were able to walk to the Anne Frank house in about 20 minutes. We enjoyed being near the Jordaan. We ate most our meals there in quaint restaurants. We will definitely return!
