Incredible Opportunity

  • 5 of 5

What better way to enjoy a stay in Amsterdam than on a canal, in a well done houseboat! We loved the location (quiet, but easy access to EVERYTHING), the inside was clean, well stocked, and very comfortable. Sander was easy to work with, responsive to all questions and provided many great suggestions. We would highly recommend trying to stay here and enjoy a peaceful coffee time on the deck before heading out for the day. Don't forget to enjoy sunset there as well.

Easy, convenient and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for short 3 night weekend. Check in and check out was easy and the houseboat had everything we needed. 30 mins from central station and less than 10 minutes walk to the start of the bar and restaurants.

Magical place to stay in Amsterdam

  • 5 of 5

Staying on the houseboat was one of the highlights of our family vacation in Amsterdam! The boat itself is comfortably appointed with everything you need for your stay, and the location could not be better. We loved staying in the eastern side of the city which is quieter and less touristed than other parts, and found everything we needed in the lovely surrounding neighborhood. There are great restaurants close by, convenient shopping for food and wine, and public transportation options are within quick walking distance. I would highly recommend this lovely spot for your next stay in Amsterdam!

Perfect canal experience

  • 5 of 5

The location and layout of the boat was a perfect first time visit to Amsterdam. Enough space for four of us, two college age daughters and moms. Fantastic location to walk to most highlights in this beautiful city.

Best Morning Ever.

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly like the images and description. Great size for two people right on the water across the university. Were is quiet and can sit outside on the water and watch people cross the bridge and see the ducks. Morning breakfast is silent and peaceful with great view. Highly recommend it.

Beautiful Houseboat located in the old part of Amsterdam. Easy to reach by public transport. Close to major attractions like the Botanical Garden, The Zoo, Hermitage Museum, Waterloo square, Rembrandt House, etc. Bars, restaurants and supermarket closeby. A lovely quiet location from which to explore Amsterdam and experience the feel of living on a houseboat.
