Wonderful Houseboat in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This houseboat is a great way to enjoy a visit to Amsterdam. The location is ideal since it's outside of the busy city center, yet it's near trams and busses, plenty of cafes, and a short walk to the shopping district or museums. The houseboat is quite comfortable and has a peaceful spot on a canal. I'd certainly recommend it.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 kids (age 13 and 11) stayed on the houseboat for a few days. We all loved it. Mario was out of town but had a friend greet us. His friend was very helpful and explained everything as well as provided us with some great recommendations on things to do and places to eat.

A truly unique experience

  • 4 of 5

I recommend this experience to anyone looking for something a little different. We enjoyed leaning out the windows and feeding the ducks and swans, and watching the locals guzzle beer as they boated past on a friday night. It is an old houseboat, and being in the water for decades has left it a tad musty. The interior was spacious and the boat did not rock at all, not one little bit. The houseboat is not particularly near anything, on a weedy street, but if you walk just a few blocks you are in one of the most interesting cities in the world, populated by the worlds most attractive people.

A Magical Sail on an Amsterdam Houseboat

  • 5 of 5

The three of us, a couple and myself, were excited about staying aboard a houseboat in Amsterdam. It did not disappoint. A quick ride on Tram #1 from the Central Station, brought us to the boat on a lovely canal. We were thrilled.

The concierge, Jorge, was there to meet us right on time. He was friendly and considerate as he showed us the boat's systems. It's well-appointed with virtually everything one could need. (It did not have a washer/dryer, but there's a laundromat five minutes away)

The two bedrooms are at either end of the boat with comfortable full-size beds which each sleep two. The shower bathroom is compact and nicely heated by a radiator. We'd turn it on early in the morning for a toasty shower later. The kitchen has everything one needs for cooking.

The main living room is comfortable with a sofa and large dining table. We spent much of our time there, occasionally watching the flat screen TV.

I loved waking in the night to the lights and low purr of a boat passing in the canal. The reflections of the water made beautiful rippling light on the ceiling. There was indeed a magical feeling to this boat.

Yes, this is a lovely, affordable property. Simple, comfortable, centrally located. There's a nice mix of shops and restaurants in the near vicinity.

If you are a party of 1-2-3 or 4 coming to Amsterdam, I highly recommend this boat. It will give your stay a special, memorable quality that even a four star hotel cannot provide.

Comfortable digs with great location

  • 4 of 5

No luxury but very comfortable for two couples and comes with a tranquil canal view. Great location just near enough to all the Amsterdam attractions without the noise and crowds. Very convenient to the Schiphol Airport Express ... two blocks away, 5€ and runs every 10 minutes. Really everything you need for a great Amsterdam stay.

Coolest Place We've Stayed

  • 5 of 5

This houseboat is amazing. It has all the comforts you could want (full kitchen, fast WiFi, heating, plumbing, etc.) while still being on the water!

The common area was surprisingly spacious, and the bedrooms were a bit smaller but more than enough room for three people (two sharing one bedroom, one in the other) with shelves for clothes. The kitchen is fully stocked, and there are added amenities like a speaker system, TV, candles, books, etc.

The shower is over the toilet, but there is a squeegee to use to mop up the water so the floor doesn't stay too wet.

The houseboat is in a lovely neighborhood with many great bars, shops, restaurants, and grocery stores, but is quiet at night and not full of tourists. It's about a 20 minute walk to the central downtown area and is close to trams and bike lanes.

Mario was very responsive in helping us set up the reservation, and his assistant Paulo was very nice to meet us at the boat when we arrived and see us off when we left. I would love to stay here again.
