Close to Centraal station, a short walk and quick (free)ferry hop. Home away from home, quiet neighborhood. Nice rooms plenty of space for two couples. Great street market several days a week.

Pleasant stay in a houseboat

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3days here and it was thoroughly enjoyable. Sander met us on our arrival and explained everything we needed to know. Boat was very clean and on quiet street. Swans and ducks swam right up to canal terrace. Beautiful every morning. Just 3 minutes to Grasweg bus stop that takes you right to the ferry which runs every 5 minutes. Very nice to be on this side of the water. Grocery close by, Albert Heijn and new restaurants opening all the time. We had a delicious meal at De Soepboer on Van der Perstraat. Would highly recommend this houseboat

We stayed three days in Sept 2016 wish we would have booked for longer

  • 5 of 5

This is the best place to be in Amsterdam. The location is the best and you won't find a better price. The free ferry is right across from Central Station and takes a minute to shuttle you away from all the noise and hussle of Amsterdam and a minute to get you back to the center. The house boat was beautiful view great we had ducks and swans everyday. It was great to have wifi to get in touch with family. There are plenty of stores and restaurants close by. You will be lucky to get this great place!!

Spacious houseboat in a quite area

  • 5 of 5

4 of us stayed in this houseboat with plenty of room for us all. Decent sized kitchen and bathroom with large bath, 2 double beds and a comfortable living area. Everything you need is there, the kitchen is well equipped and there's even loo roll. Sander was very welcoming and gave us useful information about the area. Weather wasn't brilliant when we were there which was a pity as we'd like to have spent more time sitting outside on the canal feeding the various birds that pass by. The houseboat is about a 10\15 min walk from the ferry. Only thing we would've liked is more pillows as they are a little on the soft side so spare ones would've been nice. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would book it again.

Perfect for Amsterdam!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to do something different in Amsterdam and we decided on a houseboat. We loved this property! It is very easy to get into Amsterdam by train and then the free ferry is right behind the central station. We rented bikes and felt like locals going back and forth across the river on the ferry.

The houseboat is perfect for a family of 4 or even 2 couples. Our favourite part was definitely the little balcony where we could relax with a glass of wine or coffee in the morning while the ducks and swans floated past. The houseboat is on a nice quiet canal which is so peaceful after a busy streets of Amsterdam.

The houseboat has everything you need for a short or longer stay. The staircase to the downstairs is a bit steep at first but fine if you take it slowly. We would definitely recommend this to anyone and we can't wait to return!

All round excellent

  • 5 of 5

An excellent property with absolutely everything you need in a great area with shops a few minutes away. We went with 2 kids and it suited us all brilliantly. It's quiet and really nice being on the canal and its only a short walk to the ferry to Amsterdam central which runs all the time. We spent a lot of our time in North Amsterdam which has great restaurants, cafes and cycle routes. Sander the host was excellent. Highly recommend this houseboat.

Located in a quiet residential area. It's a 10 minutes walk to the free ferry (runs 24 hours a day) which takes you in a couple of minutes straight to the Central station right in the middle of the city. From here all the major attractions of Amsterdam like the Anne Frank House, van Gogh museum etc. are easy to reach by bus or tram. The best way is however to rent bikes to move around like the locals.
