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 were in Amsterdam for my wife to run in the marathon. The apartment was within walking distance of the Olympic Stadium where the marathon started and finished which was perfect for us. Just behind the apartment there is a beautiful park/forest which we had insufficient time to explore properly but is well worth another visit.
Our host, Stephen, is a charming man and nothing was too much trouble for him if we needed help or advice.
Overall we’re we very impressed with the the countryside just a few miles outside of the city and would always prefer to stay here rather than in the city.
