About Your Host
As your host, my dearest wish is for you to enjoy your stay and feel at home in your houseboat.
Why Your Host chose Amsterdam-Centrum
To live in a houseboat in the 'Old Center' of Amsterdam but in the residential part : 'East side'. Why Live In A houseboat ? : I understood that a flat is too noisy, as the walls are too thin with buildings on pilotis in Amsterdam. A barge is too steep-sided.
What makes this House Boat unique
You are tucked away on your own island in the middle of town. Only renting the houseboat when I’m in the countryside, a 'polder', which is very closeby. Your houseboat is not merely an impersonal and soulless rental property, as I prefer to welcome my friends and guests in a friendly spirit rather than dealing with business customers.

Houseboat Living in Amsterdam
The houseboat has everything you could want for a comfortable stay -- AND right out your window are ducks and swans and mudhens! The boat is in a convenient location, midway between the Nieuwmarkt and the opera house. During the day, the canal is lively, with the aforementioned birds and also many tour boats, but all is quiet at night. I think I had my best sleep in all of our three weeks in Europe.
Lionel is a charming host. He provided very thorough information before we arrived. Then he met us at the boat to show us the ropes. He also gave us suggestions on restaurants and stores in the neighborhood. There were fresh flowers to greet us, and beautiful orchids and living plants on the boat. Clearly the houseboat is a labor of love, and I would gladly stay there again.
Houseboat in city center

Wir danken euch herzlich für euren hervorragenden Service auf eurem Schmuckstück an der Raamgracht.
Exzellente Unterkunft für Leute, die Amsterdam besuchen wollen und dabei auch die Gastfreundlichkeit und den Charme der netten Menschen erleben möchten. Saskia und Lionel haben ein Auge fürs Detail und sind äußerst freundlich, ohne aufdringlich zu sein. Die Unterkunft ist hervorragend gelegen, um die Stadt zu erkunden. Besser als jedes Hotel!
