We were very pleased with the houseboat.

  • 4 of 5

The boat is located in a residential area with a shopping area within a 10 minute walk. We found a very nice restaurant, SmaarQt. The accommodations were just as reported. The free ferry to the city was a 10 minute walk.

Don't miss out on this wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, serene, and beautiful. What an amazing experience we had staying at this property. The houseboat is plenty big for our family of four. The bedrooms were nice sized, and had plenty of storage. The bathroom is huge! Upstairs, the kitchen comes equipped with top of the line appliances including a freezer. We cooked several meals, and we never lacked for any kitchen utensil. The living room was comfortable and it was nice having a few English speaking television stations for the kids. Speaking of kids, they couldn't of had more fun feeding "Jimmy" the resident swan. Don't let this great place slip by you!

Our fantasy home in Holland

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here (me, my husband and 2 kids (age 5 and 14) last week, and we were so happy with the whole experience. Sanders greeted us at the houseboat and showed us around the place (even though we arrived later in the evening). We were instantly charmed by place.

The houseboat is immaculately clean and so beautifully decorated. Everything is so thoughtfully laid out and it felt like our own home. The bathroom is amazing and has the best round tub which the kids loved for their nightly baths! The bedrooms were so sweet and the beds were comfortable and a great size for all of us.

We were so comfortable and enjoyed feeding the ducks off the patio and just exploring the town on Noord. I have been to Amsterdam but not this part of the city, and it's really a nice alternative for families. It's an easy ferry ride to the business of the city center, but then you get home to this idyllic quiet setting in Noord. We explored and found the best bakery (Bakkerszonnen) and all kinds of little treats nearby. Staying here is a really great way to get the best of both worlds for Amsterdam.

I would 100% recommend this rental and hope to come visit again next summer!

What a great little find!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights, but would have liked to have stayed longer. It's a a bit of a walk on the other side of the free walk/bike/motorbike on ferry, which goes every five minutes during the day and eight at night 24/7 from central station, but personally I was looking for something quiet at night. I loved waking up in the morning to all the bird chatter, who are your noisiest neighbours, since your bedroom window is only a few feet above the water line. This place is clean, well designed, with a kitchen that has just enough of whatever you might need and shops just five minutes up the road. I was thinking as I stayed that I could live this way. Sander was polite and helpful, and all in all I'd say they 'run a pretty tight ship.' [Sorry. Couldn't resist.]

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

We just love this houseboat. The location is perfect, 10 minutes easy walking from ferry, 24 hours free, and in 2 minutes crossing we are at Centraal Station.

The boat has all the amenities we need, very warm and cozy.

Huge bathroom with two double rooms. Comfortable and warm all you can ask after a day exploring the city.

Wake up in the morning watching the ducks and swans from the canal is just beautiful.

THanks all the team from Titanic to the smooth check in / out process and all the support. We truly recommend this houseboat.

Great space!

  • 5 of 5

The house boat appeared exactly as it was presented on the site. We were pleased with our stay and the accommodations. A short walk to the (free) ferry as well as other facilities like shops, laundry, food, and grocery store. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you Sander and Alma for a smooth experience.

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.
