We three stayed on the boat early November. Met the owner, whose husband converted the boat many years ago, on arrival. She lives, very quietly, on the other half of the boat. Sander, who handles the rental, was very helpful.
It is only 10 minutes from the ferry, which takes you, in another few minutes, to the central station - which is walking/cycling distance from pretty much everything. Anything else, Uber can handle, at a pretty reasonable price.
The accommodation was bright, a little quirky, and provided all the basics needed to support a long weekend in Amsterdam. Wish we could have stayed longer to take advantage of the local market, the Surinam takeaway (Suri to go), and some of the other attractions on the north side of the water. Very tranquil base - nice to watch the morning mist as the sun rises and the coots make their way upstream. Will be booking Sander’s boat again.
We loved staying on the houseboat, and we will definitely recommend it!! You get the real Amsterdam feeling, and everything works perfectly. Very nice open room with the kitchen, dining table and couches. Perfect for a small family or group of friends. Thank you for a lovely experience!
