Excellent Accommodation convenient to Centraal
This is a lovely houseboat in the Noord district of Amsterdam. Roomy for our family of 4, we enjoyed being on the water but outside of the busier canals in the Centrum. A key observation is that anyone with bad knees may want to know of the steep and narrow stairs in this place, necessary to accessing the bedroom and bathroom which are downstairs. The owner was there to greet us on arrival and give us an orientation tithe facilities and the neighbourhood. He was great to communicate with through the booking. We were very happy with this accommodation as it was a great escape from the very busy and noisy central tourist zones, and to enjoy a ferry ride each day as we went out sightseeing. For those who love to walk, it was perfect. We walked everywhere! Would definitely stay here again on another visit to Amsterdam.
Excellent property, quiet location, close to centre
We thank Sander and his colleagues for their care and attention during our visit. We were met at the property and keys handed over. All instructions are in the property handbook, so everything is explained clearly.
The property is clean and tidy with all facilities. Deen supermarket is nearby so you can save carrying shopping too far. Also street market on nearby street and small grocer. So all you need is within short walking distance. The travel to the property is approx three minutes on ferry from Amsterdam Centraal and then ten minute walk.
Process of booking was straightforward with contact as appropriate and good even during our journey (flight delay) which meant Sander knew we were going to be late and made sure we met our contact to pick up the keys.
Thanks, Sander and friends, we are already planning our next visit.
Everything we needed!
Clean, nicely furnished, quiet, and convenient for local facilities. Hard to fault except need reasonable mobility for stairs and walking. So nice to arrive at a property with a good welcome and not have to immediately buy toiletries, washing up liquid and dishwasher tabs! We also acquired visits from a pair of Moorhens and their brood, which was delightful and could feed them from the rear balcony where you can sit overlooking the water. There is a Deen supermarket and takeaways within reasonable walking distance away and even closer are some cafes and a very good Italian restaurant called Il Pecorino. The Ferry over to the centre is very quick and we walked from Amsterdam Centraal to the boat with our wheelie cases. The North side is a ‘work in progress’ and looks like an industrial wasteland at times but there are some very interesting regenerated parts made from old containers worth a visit. We enjoyed food and drink in a waterside cafe called Pleck.
Great Location with Lots of Space
My husband, 14 yr old son and myself stayed here for 4 nights in mid June. The location was a plus for us. It is a short walk to the free ferry which takes you to the train station in 5 minutes. There are a couple of grocery stores in walking distance. Be advised they do not accept credit cards. We found it very easy to walk everywhere in Amsterdam. It was nice to get away from the congestion of the city in the evening. This houseboat apartment had two bedrooms. The beds in each room are full size which is a challenge when everyone in the family is more than 6 ft tall. There is no AC on the houseboat but a portable fan in the living room. Opening the windows provided a breeze. We were met at the houseboat and provided a tour of the facilities as well as a map of the area and recommendations. We would stay at the location again.
Convenient , comfortable, and quiet.
The walk to the ferry is pleasant and pretty uncomplicated and the ferry gets you into the central area at the train station. The only down side of the nicely furnished houseboat for older travelers might be the steep staircase down to the bedrooms. All said, we loved it. Out of the tourist hubbub, but easy to access the central sights and join the throngs. Great healthy food at Stuart and Sally Nord about 2blocks from the boat walking toward the ferry.
The location was great, the accommodations were great; it was a perfect fit for our family of four. Close enough to get to everything we wanted to see, conveniently located by public transportation as well. After hotels & hostels in other parts of Europe, having our own space to spread out, relax, etc, was so nice! Very clean, well maintained- no issues at all. Beautiful & relaxing after our long days of seeing the sights.
Located in a quiet residential area. It's a 10 minutes walk to the free ferry (runs 24 hours a day) which takes you in a couple of minutes straight to the Central station right in the middle of the city. From here all the major attractions of Amsterdam like the Anne Frank House, van Gogh museum etc. are easy to reach by bus or tram. The best way is however to rent bikes to move around like the locals.
