Great location and experience!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay! Home lives up to the pictures, and the location is priceless if you prefer to be around locals and not in the middle of tourists and hotels. Plus, it's a short (15-minute) walk from the museum campus. We enjoyed the mornings and evenings with the ducks, geese, and swan visiting each morning adding to the experience one would never get in a hotel. Bedrooms are on separate sides of the home providing plenty of privacy. Mario was responsive to each email and made the experience easy and enjoyable!

Amazing !

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 4 nights. One word to describe this houseboat is amazing! Just the location was perfect and quaint. With food at every corner, coffeeshops nearby and a beautiful view right outside your window ! The houseboat itself was perfect; there is immense space and 2 bedrooms at each corner so plenty of privacy. The bathroom is a wetroom but there is a curtain to cover the toilet and sink area, so you can bring clothes inside to change without it being wet and also a towel with no problem. There is a broom sized squeegee to clean the floor of the water so it works wonderfully. Overall my experience with this houseboat was amazing from the morning feeds lite ducklings outside the window to being able to have a 3 minute walk to any coffeeshop , 1 minute walk to food and 4 minutes to the tram . Just fabulous. Milena was a wonderful person and assisted in explaining the houseboat . When I return to this beautiful country and city , I will be staying here again ! Thank you !!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our grandson in this houseboat for 4 nights. It was a spectacular location and a very comfortable and roomy place. We especially enjoyed the proximity to the Leidseplein with all of its eating and transportation options.

We were greeted by a friend of the owner who was out of town during our visit. Paulo and his sister were a great help to us in getting settled. Paulo also worked with us when there was a problem with the hot water. The issue was addressed as quickly as possible and we felt well taken care of.

We's recommend this property to anyone. It was a dream come true for us to be able to stay in a houseboat!

Owner's Response: Dear Rebecca I want to thank you once again for your understanding for the issue about hot water, it was really appreciated. And about the visit from city hall representatives, it was good that you confirmed I live there, because that is actually what they want to know and the information that they collect must match what is in their records. So hopefully no problems about that ;) All the best Mario

We had the best stay on Mario’s boat. It is in a great neighborhood that is quiet.

  • 5 of 5

The neighborhood has nice restaurants nearby as well as a supermarket. The canal only has smaller boats cruising by with people on them that are having as good a time as you are. The only thing we wished the boat had is an outdoor deck to hangout on as we watched boats pass. The two bedrooms were nice sized, bathroom small but we didn’t hang in there too much. The living room could use a coffee table too. All in all, Mario’s boat was perfect for us. We took two late afternoon canal cruises in three days. Be sure to bring wine, cheese, bread, dried meats, etc. for the perfect cruise.

Cozy houseboat in a beautiful canal in a local part of town

  • 4 of 5

We loved watching the boats and ducks from this boat. The part of town is also perfect as it is not in the thick of the tourist action, it was great to feel like a local and still be close to sites. We stayed with our baby and greatly appreciated the crib and second room-a door or curtain on the room would have been a plus.

The kitchen had all we needed for cooking and the Albert Heijn was not too far away. All in all a great stay.

Unique experience!

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Gracious host. The boat is spacious and clean. An automatic coffee pot would have been good for us addicts, but we made do. Coffee was provided and some snacks. Nice kitchen. Windows onto the canal throughout—fun to see the boats and ducks
