Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Ronald's houseboat was the ideal place to stay during our trip to Amsterdam. Two adults and two children easily fit into the spacious boat. There are two bedrooms and the kids found themselves enjoying a good night's rest on the living room couch too. Bathroom is large and the kitchen well-equipped. The main living area is open and has many windows and is very light. Ronald (the owner) was very friendly and welcoming and gave us good information about seeing the city. He also helped us during a small issue with the hot water (he had it fixed very quickly). The location is ideal - a ten minute walk from Centraal Station and within five minutes walk from the Prisengracht canal ring of streets and shops. Access to grocery / market is only a five to ten minute walk too. The area where the boat is located is very quiet and residential. We had no trouble with noise or traffic. Would definitely recommend staying on this awesome houseboat over staying in a hotel room. Such charm, we didn't want our stay to end.

Owner's Response: Hello Mary, I really do not understand this because I have met you and asked if all was good you never mentioned anything and I want to ask if you maybe mistaken the place with another you stayed in, in your holiday. Kind regards, Ronald

Great Location! Great Host!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Ronald's houseboat for ten days while touring Amsterdam and the surrounding area. The location is terrific, only ten minutes walking from Central Staation and only ten minutes walking from shopping, nice neighborhood restaurants and local markets. From Central Staation, you can get literally anywhere in the city by train, tram, metro or bus so getting to museums, etc. was not an issue. No problem figuring out the schedules or locations.With very limited exceptions, we used public transportation everywhere and it's an easy trip to and from Schiphol. Uber is an option also.

As a side note, we purchased the IAmsterdam pass which included local transportation as well as museum entry and also purchased the regional train pass so we were able to get outside the city limits with little difficulty. IAmsterdam covered the vast majority of the museums that we wanted to see although it only offered a discount for the Rijksmuseum.

The accommodations are as shown and are comfortable. Kitchen is well-equipped although we did not do much cooking. Bread, wine and cheese on the jetty was a true treat at the end of a long day of sightseeing. Our only caution is watch that first step into the bathroom. :-)

Ronald lives in the houseboat directly opposite so we shared the jetty. He is the consummate host and really cared that we had what we needed and knew our way around.

Overall a very special experience. As Ronald mentions in his listing, this is not a place for people with limited mobility. It is a boat even though it is anchored and has the same space and logistical challenges, i.e., steps, etc. Thanks for Ronald for making our stay in his lovely city fabulous!

Lovely houseboat

  • 5 of 5

The houseboat is spacious and comfortable with everything we needed. It is a lovely quiet location, but we found shops, canals and the station were all really close. The owner is so welcoming and helpful, and very happy to offer early checkin and luggage drop off if he can. Highly recommended and we would definately stay here again.

living like a local

  • 5 of 5

When choosing a place to stay, I always look for certain criteria: great reviews, cleanliness, lots of charm, and good value. This place has it all! The fact that Ronald is a helpful and personable host is an added bonus! The location is great -- a quiet spot yet a short walk to the action. The photos accurately capture the boat's charm. Our children loved the unique experience that reflects life in the city, and our trip to fabulous Amsterdam was perfect…largely due to our three nights in Ronald's houseboat!

The houseboat is in the center of Amsterdam in the Jordan! Just a 10 minutes walk from the central station! It is at the beginning of the famous Prinsengracht where clause everyyear the gayparade takes place. Just around the corner there is are two supermarkets and a lot of shops and bars all situated in the Haarlemmerstraat voted nicest (2012) shopping street in the Netherlands. The North Market is with the beautiful Noorderkerkconcerten and the nice markets in the weekend and Monday's a must go! It is an area with lots of restaurants and bars.

If you come by car you can park close to the boat (paid parking)

No smoking in the boat! .
