First of all, the welcome of Sietske. Smiling and friendly, Sietske welcomes you with simplicity and warmth. His visit tips are very useful, especially for a first time in Amsterdam.
Second, the houseboat. Near Central Station, this is a sweet and beautiful place to stay in Amsterdam. A real little cocoon. Close to the city center, perfect to discover the city and museums.
Do not hesitate, come on board !!!
We had a truly wonderful few days on Houseboat Tante Piet. The location is great, lovely and peaceful but also near to all the 'must see' locations. Sietske gave us some great recommendations which made our stay truly special. Our time went so quickly and we really didn't want to leave!
We had a wonderful stay at Sietske's houseboat. The boat is located at a perfect place, everything is close by, easy to find with public transport. Sietske is a super nice, welcoming, warm host with a good humor. ;) She gave us good tips where to go, what to visit etc. The beds were comfortable and the wooden stove gave a perfect addition to this beautiful little place. I highly recommend it to everyone to stay at Sietske's, it is an experience you'll never regret!
A magical place to stay on the water well appointed w/ wood stove, TV, hot showers, toilets, cat and an amazingly friendly owner who has great suggestions on bike rentals, sightseeing, dining and ship building. The houseboat is in a warm houseboat residential community ideally suited with a short tram ride or easy bicycle or walk to the Central Station. The owner went out of her way to be warm and wonderful to my family. As a bonus, the houseboat gently rocks tired travelers to sleep.
Our family of 2 adults and 2 kids enjoyed a lovely and warm stay with Sietske on her houseboat for 2 nights. The boat is wonderfully comfortable, and has all the amenities of daily living that one would require. Sietske stocked up the kitchen with breakfast items and even bought some cookies and chocolates for us. The wood fire took a little learning for us to get it going through the night, but it was a fun experience and kept the boat comfortable and toasty. There is also a washing machine and a washing line above the warm stove so we could wash and dry our clothes really easily. Thanks to Sietske for a lovely stay and our kids loved having Boebie around. Boat is also very conveniently located, just 2 tram stops from Amsterdam Centraal.
We (mother/daughter) stayed with cat Boebie and owner Sietske for 2 nights/3 days. We had a lovely stay, felt very much at home and really like cat Boebie, she is sooooo cute! And if you don't like cats, don't worry, she is not "in your face"and will ignore you if you want to.
Houseboat Tante Piet is conveniantly located on a quit street/canal and within easy walking distance from Amsterdam central station and the city with everything you want to see and do on your trip.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the houseboat accommodations and very much enjoyed the helpful suggestions and conversation with Sietske.. I would recommend this experience to anyone.
