                                                    Great location and experience!

                                                    Mark S.

                                                    What a wonderful stay! Home lives up to the pictures, and the location is priceless if you prefer to be around locals and not in the middle of tourists and hotels. Plus, it's a short (15-minute) walk from the museum campus. We enjoyed the mornings and evenings with the ducks, geese, and swan visiting each morning adding to the experience one would never get in a hotel. Bedrooms are on separate sides of the home providing plenty of privacy. Mario was responsive to each email and made the experience easy and enjoyable!

                                                    Great location, awesome scenery.

                                                    My husband and friend stayed at the houseboat for a few days in the middle of our travels. Paulo and Mario were easy to communicate with and accommodating. On the day we arrived, I contacted paulo and quickly got a response to allow us weary travels to check in early.

                                                    The boat was clean and cozy. it was in a great location. We easily walked to (almost) every tourist attraction in the city. It is in a quiet part of town. Close to stores and restaurants.

                                                    I believe I read a few posts about others having issues with the bathroom. It is more of a wet room shower, so the entire room is subjected to getting wet if someone uses the shower. But, you are on a boat and it didn't bother us one bit. I guess if you want a more traditional shower maybe don't stay on a boat.

                                                    We loved it. The ducks and boats passing by were an added bonus. :)

                                                    Wonderful, unique experience in a great part of town

                                                    Lisa W.Tacoma, WA

                                                    We really enjoyed staying in the canal boat during our time in Amsterdam. We loved going to sleep and waking up with view of the water. I stayed with my three children and it was certainly large enough for us. The space was very clean and the host very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The family-friendly neighborhood is so quiet and safe yet very close to public transit and restaurants and grocery stores. It was perfect for us! One note: While there is a shower curtain (and plenty of hot water!), the floor to the toilet area in the bathroom will get wet while you shower. Not a big deal as a squeegee and extra towels are provided but it helps to know this ahead of time.

                                                    Excellent Way to Spend Christmas in Amsterdam

                                                    Rodney M.

                                                    We had an excellent stay on the houseboat for a few days around Christmas. I wish we could have stayed longer to explore the neighborhood more which looked to be nice also. But with the houseboat just blocks from the tram station we spent most of our time taking the trams around town to explore all of Amsterdam. The houseboat was perfect for the 3 or us with the bedrooms on opposite ends of the boat and the main living area in the center. The heating was very consistent and comfortable and after spending a week on a river cruise it was nice to be have the kitchen area to make our own breakfast for a few days. Thanks so much for this wonderful opportunity and we hope to make it back in the summer sometime to enjoy it then also.

                                                    Wonderful Houseboat in Great Location

                                                    Nicole J.Belfast, ME, USA

                                                    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.

                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                    Thnak you for the nice feedback and hopefully until a next time ;)

                                                    Take care, Mario

                                                    Loved it!

                                                    Kristal B.

                                                    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.
