Welcome to this charming Houseboat. This houseboat in Amsterdam is perfect to experience this fabulous city in a unique way. Renting this houseboat enables you to live like a real Amsterdammer. It is moored on the most beautiful canal, located right in the heart of the city, you are surrounded by the many museums, parks, shops, cafes and galleries Amsterdam has to offer.
From the sunny upper deck, where you can spend warm summer evenings, to the lower deck where it is cozy and comfortable during the winter, this really is a special occasion to create some wonderful holiday memories in Amsterdam.
The kitchen comes with a dining table that seats 4 and has everything you need for your weekend break. There is a four-ring stove, microwave, oven, kettle, blender, fridge, toaster and all the cutlery, utensils and tableware you will need for your stay. There is even a sauna, everything you need to relax when you get home after a long day of Amsterdam.
The location was great and a great value. The house boat was charming and spacious. It is not a luxury rental though so if you are overly particular about high quality luxury fittings on your holiday, move along. For our daughters and mums weekend it was the perfect location and suited us wonderfully.
The houseboat is really beautiful, located in the heart of Jordaan area is really quiet. Close to the centre (tram stop is just 100 mt far) and in with a lot of restaurant, pub and supermarket (Albert Heijn ) reachable just with a short walk.
The houseboat is a good way to live Amsterdam as a dutch, it has all the confort you need for your journey a plus are:
- the washin maschine with dryer
- the dishwasher
- and of course the sauna, we enjonyed it every evening
Some place of the boat have short ceiling but it's not a real problem (and I'm 187 cm. tall!).
A couple of thinghs could be improved:
- the outside, clean better the area and put some flowers (it's not so hard in Amsterdam.....) and the houseboat will become enchanting
- inside cleansing: unfortonately the boat was really dirty, we paid (and also who stayed before us) the cleaning fee (60€) but dishes, shelves, kitchen table, floor were so dirty that we had to clean everything because were not usable.
I think that If you will pay attention of these last two things the houseboat will become one of the best place to stay in Amsterdam.
If I will be again in Amsterdam I will rent the houseboat but first I will check the cleaning.
We had a delightful time in Amsterdam in our boathouse. It was cute and charming and relatively comfortable. The back room had a short ceiling, where you couldn't stand up completely : / We believe staying on a boathouse you do compromise some creature comforts but the uniqueness makes up for it. The location was perfect. You could easily access all areas of Amsterdam the average tourist would like to see. We didn't really us the kitchen but we liked the separate sleeping areas!
Based in the gorgeous Jordaan area, the boat was centrally located but quiet in the evenings. Fantastic place to stay if you really want to feel like your doing it the Dutch way!
