We loved our weekend here. Lovely boat in a quiet but central location.
Everything we needed and only a ten minute walk from the station.

“Great find”

5 of us stay on the houseboat for various days over a 6 day period and we had a ball. Great location (did take a little bit to find but more because of GPS was rubbish) but once there were surprised just by how much was supplied. We only need to buy our food everything was on board including tea and coffee, various spices etc. All rooms were great clean and tidy. All cutlery, crockery and linen was supplied and in very good condition. My only comment would be to have some larger cups with handles as the cups supplied are quite small, not a criticism just an observation from an Aussie that prefers large cups for tea and coffee.. Lol) location wise the boat is only a 20 min walk to Centraal Station but there are buses only a block away that will take you there. Just up from the boat are several cafes/bars that provide great service and are generally open quite late. Our hosts (Frank and Marilyn) were fantastic and if we needed anything or clarification they were right onto it all through the booking process and during our stay. If you are a group of 5 looking for some unique and real value for money accommodation close to Central Amsterdam We would highly recommend the houseboat.

We really enjoyed staying in Frank and Marilyns house boat. so pleasant to go back and relax in the boat after a busy day discovering the city of Amsterdam. The location was very good, close to shop etc..and the area is also quiet.
The highlight of the stay for the children was being able to feed the ducks, the swans and the seagulls from the boat's window EVERY DAY!
The boat is very cosy and the bottle of wine we got at our arrival made it even more welcoming!
We would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a special experience in Amsterdam.

“This beats a hotel room any day”

What a great stay! The houseboat has everything we needed. Washer, dryer, dish washer, refirdgerator, dishes, etc. We wanted a place where we could prepare our own meals, have the amenities of home, bring our dog and offer a great location to see the city. This offered all of those. It was super easy to coordinate with the owners and he was even responsive when we had a few minor questions (he answered our texts quickly).

The area is safe, private and we could walk to the large majority of the attractions in under 15 minutes. We went on a boat tour, did an escape room, went to the Amsterdam dungeons and even took trips to a clog facotry, cheese factory and the old-fashioned windmills. All locations and points of departure where super close.

They offered a few bottle of wine, gaining access was easy and the owner gave directions to really affordable and safe parking that was a short walk away. You can see the ducks from the portholes and my son loved sleeping in the captains area which offered great views of one of the canals.

Next time we go, there is no doubt we'll book the same place.

The only thing I will say is the ceilings are only about 5' 9'' and being 6' 2'' I had to duck. It's ahousboat so it didnt suprise us and really didnt cause much of an issue. We can't wait to enjoy it in the summer.
