Amazing Space!

Amsterdam wouldn't have been the same without our houseboat. We had such a great time! Super spacious and easy to get to. The staff was super nice as well

Charming boat-house with all amenities

  • 5 of 5

The house boat itself is very modern inside, clean and has all facilities. I was met by the owner, Fergie, who actually lives right next door. He showed me through the house. I wish he had showed me how to use the wash/dryer - I never did quite master that and my clothes came out terribly wrinkled. Their is a nice supermarket right across the street where you can buy everything you need including one and prepared foods.

The houseboat is right by a bus stop and only a short walk away from a tram stop. You can but a day (or several day) bus that gets you on and off the bus and tram and then gives you complete access to the city.

In the evenings it was fun watching party boats go by on the canal, otherwise it was very quiet.

I wish the VRBO site would make it clear though that there is a city tax of EUR 65 to be paid IN CASH that is not shown in the price.

The houseboat is clean with good accomodations. The location is excellent and one can walk or take public transport all over the city. The owners are gracious and helpful. A wonderful place.

The prefect break

Stunning views up and down the canal and a peaceful area within easy walking of the centre of Amsterdam. Very clean and well maintained apartment, with all of the facilities we needed. We would happily go again.

We stayed on the houseboat for a long weekend after a Rhine river cruise. It was the perfect end to our vacation. The houseboat is superb: spacious, immaculate, wonderful canal views, and well-appointed kitchen. It is in a quiet neighborhood within easy bus, tram, and walking distance to major sites. There are convenient local stores and several good restaurants nearby (Cafe Kadjik is great for Indonesian food), and a lively brewpub at the windmill just down the road. Don't miss the Resistance Museum, a short walk away, for a sense of life under the Nazi occupation, the persecution of Jews, and the difficult choices facing the Dutch population. The rental agency staff is great--they couldn't be more welcoming and helpful, with good suggestions for places to visit.
