Self contained apartment with 1 bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen. The bedroom can be made as a double or 2 singles and with 2 single or double sofa beds in the living room it is very versatile. The living room also has large windows for great views over the Amstel to watch the boats go by and large dining table. Speaker connection for your mp3 or ipod/pad and DVD TV with loads of channels. Situated in the centre of town you have everything on your door step.
We have stayed in 7 or 8 houseboats in amsterdam over the years but never have we had a better houseboat, in a better location for the money. This was a short stay so we didn't really get into the "moving in" and "setting up house" thing we normally do so I can't comment on using the kitchen other than to say it was new and clean and appears to be well stocked. The bed was very comfortable, there were plenty of towels which is unusual so thanks much for that guys. The bathroom was sufficient, new and clean, but remember it's a houseboat so not huge but for a houseboat it's a big bathroom with plenty of room and a nice big sink and good shower. There is no music unless you bring an iPod for the iPod docking station. The sofas are extremely comfortable and the dining table is big enough to seat several people. The TV is fine if you go on vacation to watch TV, but the stations are limited and again no music stations. The views???..Wow, big windows with great views on the river side of the houseboat but blinds you can close if you feel you want some extra privacy but hey, you are across from the opera house and the only people that can see in are those going by in a boat. Highly recommended. We will stay there again.
The best way to see Amsterdam is to rent a bike to discover the old part of town with it's chic cafes and restaurants and to get to Anne Frank, Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Rijks museums to name just a few. Canal boat tours are always nice or hire a boat and go your own way. The Dutch love their bikes and boats. If the weather is nice head for Vondel park or the beach is just 20 mins away. In spring the tulip gardens of Keukenhoff is a must.
And with plenty of night life on your doorstep you are never far from a good night out. There is so much to see and do you might not have time for it all but then you can always come back and see us again.
