Perfect spot for a quiet stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 6-month-old, and I visited Amsterdam from Seattle, USA, and we could not be happier with our choice of accommodations. Experiencing Amsterdam by houseboat is highly recommended, and this particular one was clean, cute, and conveniently located on a quiet but otherwise central Canal. Jakob was attentive to our needs and generously provided breakfast food which lasted us most of our stay. Needless to say, the houseboat was probably the highlight of our trip.

Beautiful houseboat in charming neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Jakob's houseboat. Very quiet and peaceful atmosphere but only 10 minute walk away from great shops and restaurants. The two swans waiting outside the balcony window every morning was an added bonus :)
