Wow where can I start, the boat was relatively easy to find a short walk from central. It was very clean and much more spacious than I was expecting. The owner was very friendly and gave very clear instructions about how to use everything on the boat and where to find everything I needed to. The staff at the marina were also very friendly and this boat really makes you feel at home!
We stayed for the weekend (3 nights) and found this to be an amazing and original solution, near to the city center and very cozy. Richard gave us precise directions and instructions regarding how to get there and how to make everything work inside the boat!
The bathroom and shower is about 1 min away (not inside the boat) but very close so it's not bad (and specified in the description).
We definitely recommend it to everyone!
We had communication issues with Richard prior to our arrival in Amsterdam. This resulted in our being unable to get into the boat. When he finally returned our calls at 10 PM, my wife was too nervous and reluctant to stay on the boat. It cannot easily be locked from the inside. We stayed the night at the adjacent hotel.
The hotel concierge was very helpful. She contacted Richard and convinced him he should at least refund our rental of his boat.
It has been 2 months since I resent our bank info to Richard. again! He seems to have trouble getting it right. This whole affair has been very disappointing; and reflects on his extreme lack of honesty and integrity. His conduct turned what promised to be a uniqu, enjoyable and memorable experience into a much more expensive and less enjoyable one. I suggest you stay away from this one!
Stayed 2 nights. Easy to find, close to city center. Boat rocked you to sleep. Baths onshore very clean. Richard very helpful on things to do.
Just what we expected and wanted - nothing too fancy but comfortable and convenient. Will be back for sure!
Everything was amazing, close to centre, amazing views, helpful and friendly owner. Toilets and shower close by. Will definitely come back.
I really loved this property. It's not particularly flashy or huge, but I wasn't expecting that. The boat is quite small, sleeps two, and is perfectly located next to a cafe at the marina, with a very short walk to Centraal station. Being able to travel around the city with an easy access back via tram was exactly what I wanted, and being able to sleep in peace and quiet without any undue messing around is exactly what I got. There are few other places at this kind of price that can sleep two and are so accessible, though I'd not recommend the property for smaller children or people with mobility issues.
