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.

Lovely property ideal for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 3 nights, it was ideal for us as it was close to the centre (a very short walk) but far enough away to be out of the hustle and bustle of the centre.

I would definatley recommend staying here and hopefully look forward to staying again in the future.

Great Home for an Amsterdam City Break

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay for a city break in Amsterdam - the houseboat is lovely, really comfortable and well-equipped, while offering a fun alternative to staying in hotels right in the city centre. It's about a 15 minute walk from the ferries to Centraal Station, so close enough to be convenient, while offering a relatively quiet neighbourhood to return to after the excitement of the city. The ferries to Centraal run so frequently you never really have to wait. The surrounding neighbourhood also has a few restaurants and shops within a relatively short walk (5-10 mins), Noorderpark for some greenery, and the EYE film museum is on the walk back to the ferry. Overall, great place to stay.

Beautiful boat, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The boat is in a quiet area but a few minutes walk from the constant running ferry which takes you to the train station, minutes from town center. The boat side also has great eating places. The boat itself is very comfortable and we'll equipped.

A lovely houseboat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Amsterdam, staying at this lovely houseboat.

We enjoyed feeding the ducks and swans on the cannel.

Everything was perfect, the houseboat is very cute and full of all comforts.
