Beautiful boat, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The boat is in a quiet area but a few minutes walk from the constant running ferry which takes you to the train station, minutes from town center. The boat side also has great eating places. The boat itself is very comfortable and we'll equipped.

A lovely houseboat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Amsterdam, staying at this lovely houseboat.

We enjoyed feeding the ducks and swans on the cannel.

Everything was perfect, the houseboat is very cute and full of all comforts.

Peaceful boat home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I loved being on the EYE side of the river. Quiet and peaceful along the river. Easy walk to the ferry and Central Train station.

The boat was perfect with all the linens and blankets you need. Big windows make it light and airy. I was happy to see there were a few basics already on the shelf like oil, vinegar, spices, coffee and filters.

The boat is very stable and very rarely did I feel any motion .. only once really when someone went by in their small boat.

Sander also gave me a wonderful map of the nearby shopping street and the market Street, all just about 4 to 5 blocks away. Many restaurants to choose from .. either various tastes and price ranges. Two major markets for eating/cooking supplies. Beautiful walks along the river.

Next trip to Amsterdam in 2017 I hope to return.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Was very pleased with this property, much bigger than it looks in pictures. We were running late but still had someone waiting for us on arrival with keys.

The boat is a 10 min walk from the ferry, and the ferry only takes 5 mins to get to central station. With ferry's running 24 hours. Got us into central in no time!

Had a really comfortable and got our deposit back super quickly. Would really recommend to anyone wanting comfortable accommodation close to the centre

Cute houseboat - a unique way to experience Amsterdam lifestyle

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Amsterdam, and really enjoyed the experience staying in this house boat! Furnishings were comfortable and the history of the boat was fun to learn about. It may help to clarify that without bikes, it takes about 15 minutes to ferry (frequent and free) and walk over to the house boat from Amsterdam Central Station. The caretaker was very friendly and gave us many tips about the area. Thanks for letting us stay!

Car: not necessary

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.
