Perfection in every way!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband, I and our two kids stayed in this ideal Amsterdam apartment for 4 nights. It was clean, bright, and had everything we needed. Our favorite aspect was the sunny great room with large glass doors that opened wide. With the doors flung open, we spent happy early mornings and evenings enjoying the happenings on the canal below us. The apartment is in a lovely quiet neighbourhood, within walking distance to the centre of Amsterdam but away from the hustle and bustle. Wouter is a ship-builder and the apartment features many clever ship-related design details. He was the ideal guide for an enjoyable canal tour, sharing many details of the city and the Amsterdam community. Our son will always remember steering Wouter's boat through the canals. Wouter was an ideal host who made us feel welcome and cared for. If we have the good fortune to return to Amsterdam again, we would return to this lovely home-away-from-home.

This was our first trip to Holland and we couldn't have had a better start than staying at the Boat House! There were four of us total. The house was very spacious and clean. The area was quiet which was relaxing after days of touring busy Amsterdam. Wouter gave us a map of the area which ended up being our "bible" to keep us from getting lost in Amsterdam. He gave us reccommendations for restaurants. Each place we visited was a delight and delicious! He gave us a mobile phone to use if we needed and it was a huge help. He had pamphlets for interesting sites to see and free WiFi if needed. Many wonderful sites were in walking distance, but if whe needed, he supplied bikes. Buses and trams are also close by.
Our cousins stopped by to check out our accomadations. They were so impressed that they took down Wouter's information to use for their American immediate family when they visit.
If I ever get a chance to return to Amsterdam, I won't bother searching for a place to stay. I will definately use Wouter's homes again.

Extraordinary

  • 5 out of 5
We had the good fortune to discover The Boathouse in our review of listings suitable for a two week stay in Amsterdam. Ideally located on the tranquil oasis of Prinseneiland near the heart of the city, The Boathouse provides easy access to public transit, shopping, area attractions and the delightfully bohemian Jordaan district. With a full range of amenities and comforts, the property was as advertised and more. Wouter and Liesbeth's care in ensuring our needs were met through provision of maps, directions, guidance and recommendations for restaurants, sightseeing, vehicle rentals, etc. was sincerely appreciated. Wouter was kind enough to also supply us, unbidden, with a cellphone with a range of helpful contact numbers loaded into the directory for use during our stay! With a kitchen already stocked with all the essentials when we arrived, including wine, snacks, breakfast items, coffee and tea we were immediately able to begin to relax and enjoy! Wouter's offered airport pick up and drop off service is recommended - seamless and efficient. And by all means take in the canal tour he offers as well, very enjoyable! We miss our early morning coffees in the sun on our patio immediately next to the canal, taking in canal life and the park across the way. We're already scheming for an early return to this idyllic property in one of Europe's most fascinating cities!

what a gem

  • 5 out of 5
The Boat House was recommended to us by friends and are we ever happy we took their advice! From the moment we were welcomed by the owner to the time we were dropped off at the airport we have nothing but kudos to both Wouter and Liesbeth. Upon arrival we found some lovely flowers, coffee, cookies and even a bottle of chilled wine. The location is perfect, we took advantage of the close proximity of Haarlemmerweg, a great street for shopping and dining. The tram and station are a stone's throw away.
The bedrooms are quiet with comfortable beds, the living quarters and kitchen area spacious with a great view of the canal. Don't forget to ask Wouter to take you on a tour of the canals, much enjoyed by all in our party. We would love to come back one day. Thank you both!

What a wonderful place to stay, and what lovely people who own and run it. We feel so fortunate to have found the Boat House in Amsterdam, which is even better than it looks on the rental listing site. It is spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed, the fixtures and fittings are excellent and it is a calm, quiet haven, where you can enjoy the views of the canal, cook great meals and relax. Wouter and Liesbeth have thought of everything to make their guests comfortable. How many landlords provide you with all the essentials for breakfast and a bottle of wine on arrival? Not many in our experience! The museum passes provided for four people were also much appreciated by us, as a family we find museum entrance fees can cost a lot for four people, and we certainly used the passes to good effect during our stay. The location of the apartment is great, close enough to the centre to walk everywhere if you choose, but also very quiet, away from the noisy nightlife of the very centre of the city. The highlight for all of us, and especially for our children, was the boat trip with Wouter around the Amsterdam canals. My children will never forget the thrill of taking the wheel of a boat and being taught and encouraged to steer under the narrow Amsterdam bridges. A lovely memory for them of their Netherlands holiday. I cannot recommend this apartment highly enough - only come to Amsterdam when you know you can stay here! This is a truly special place.

Stylish comfort, views and peace !

  • 5 out of 5
Dear Wouter,
We just wanted to contact you, to repeat to yourself and your wife Lisbeth,
how much we enjoyed our stay at the Boat House.
We have been coming to Amsterdam every year for the last 10 years and have
stayed in some beautiful (and not so beautiful) residences. The Boat House
surpassed all previous stays with its charm and style. The views are
incredible and 'vibe' of the island is perfect. All four of us were completely
blown away ! We would also like to thank you for the little extras, such a
welcome touch, from the coffee and tea to wine and juice in the fridge and
even our own slippers !! Finally, we enjoyed the boat trip around the
beautiful canals so much, made even more special being served hot drinks and
cookies on board.
You have a beautiful place and we can't wait to return.
Many thanks again for a wonderful weekend.
