Simon met us and was very pleasant and helpful. The apartment itself is well equipped and the four flights of stairs to reach it didn't bother us. There are nice bakeries and delis nearby. We had a great meal at nearby Indonesian restaurant - not cheap but delicious! Simon had also recommended a nice pizza place. Overall, a very pleasant stay

It was quite clean. The owner Peter met us when we checked in and was very helpful and accommodating to our early check-in arrival. The boat has everything one needs to be warm, clean and comfortable. The shower had good hot water, and the kitchen has everything one needs to prepare a meal. The bed is large and very comfortable. In addition, the location was brilliant; right on the Prinsengracht, and also on a street that had lots of great little restaurants and shops and also nearby the Rembrandtplein. We would definitely return, and also would highly recommend the houseboat to couples, perhaps with a child, or singles on a getaway.
