Great Houseboat...Perfect Amsterdam Experience
This is a great property. It has everything you could want, location, setting, and convenience. Frank is a very informative and helpful.
Great stay in Amsterdam!
We had a great few dans in Frank’s houseboat which is localed in a quiet neighbourhood. At first we were a bit disappointed as we thought we were too far from the Jordaan district but in the end we enjoyed the area just as much. I would recommend this houseboat any time. To live on the water is just a real Amsterdam experience!!
The only down side ( if I have to find one) is the lack of outside space — like a terrasse with a table and chairs—for us to eat or just enjoy the view. )
Thank you for sharing your home!
Lovely location, lovely place. Out of the hustle and bustle, which was perfect, but close to everything.
thanks Jim was nice to have you as my guests
Awesome place to stay!
We had a wonderful stay on Frank’s houseboat. We were close to everything we needed, the houseboat was very clean and definitely bigger than a normal hotel room. The kids loved feeding the ducks from the deck, it was a super cool experience!
Beautiful acomodations right on the water!
Easy to access and close to all major activities of Amsterdam! Beautiful well equipped houseboat on a gorgeous canal. We had a blast and it perfectly fit our needs. I highly recommend this property! Owner met us and you can tell owner takes great pride in his housing and keeps the property well maintained!
It was great to have Pat and her friends in my houseboat.
Lovely people and they left my houseboat super clean and tidy.
Thank you for being my guests, love to see you again.
What a classic way to experience Amsterdam. Our group of four traveling to Amsterdam from the US used Frank's houseboat as our home base for exploring the history, culture, and wonders of this beautiful city. Frank was a perfect host, helpful and available for questions during our stay. The welcome bottle of wine was a perfect way to toast our arrival to the city of Amsterdam. Thank you Frank for sharing your houseboat with our group.

It was lovely to have Dena and her friends on my houseboat.
The houseboat is an excellent start to explore the city! Because of the spacious canal and the botanical garden, the direct area of the houseboat feels really tranquil. And if you go around the corner you are right in the middle of some of the top attractions in Amsterdam! And since the center of Amsterdam is really compact, everything is seeings! You could ook hire a bike around the corner, and experience Amsterdam in my favorite way (highly recommended!).
Just walk around the corner, and you will find many nice Typically Amsterdam cafes, restaurants and terraces. For example, have an excellent pizza at "Pizza Bakers" have sushi at Tempura, or grab a drink at "Café Koosje", or enjoy the terraces at Kadijksplein next to the water lock.
The famous Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge) is just around the corner at the river Amstel. You'll walk there in less than 6 minutes along the canal where the houseboat is situated. It provides pretty views on the river Amstel. Here you will find usefull the beginning of the world heritage "Canal" with all the beautiful canal houses.
The Hermitage Museum is just around the corner, 5 minutes walking from the houseboat. This historic building Currently hosts beautiful expositions on the Golden Age of the Netherlands. It is located along the same canal as the Royal Theatre Carré.
The historic zoo "Artis" is only 5 minutes walking from the house boat, as is the entrance of the botanical gardens on-which you have Such beautiful views from the houseboat.
There is a really nice every day flee market at Waterloo Square, All which is only 5 minutes easy walking away. Here you will find usefull excellent metro connections, going every two minutes to for example Nieuwmarkt square (2 minutes, many bars and terraces, Red light district) and Central Station (4 minutes).
From Waterloo, it is only a minute walking to the world famous "Rembrandt House" museum, where Rembrandt lived (the painter of "The Nightwatch" now at Rijksmuseum). After visiting, enjoy a drink at "Café Sluyswacht" next door! From there, walk another 5 minutes to go end up in the Red Light District (adult entertainment) or at the Nieuwmarkt (with many nice restaurants and bars!).
The bars and restaurants and Rembrandt Square are only 5 minutes by bike along the beautiful historic canals! The famous museums (Van Gogh, Rijksmuseum) and the Leidseplein square are only 13 minutes by bike!
You will find many cafes and restaurants just around the corner. We would be happy to show some of the nicest! For example, a really nice place to have breakfast or a drink is the "Hoftuin", located in a lovely historic garden. It is only 4 minutes walking. And if you want to have a drink along the waterside in the sun, cycle of 9 minutes to the laid back "Hannekes Tree" near Central Station.
There is so much to see and do in Amsterdam! We truly believe the houseboat is an excellent start to explore the city! You will enjoy your stay here very much!
The houseboat is ook an excellent place to stay if you are in Amsterdam for a convention in the convention center RAI. It will take you less than 15 minutes to cycle there, along the beautiful Amstel river! By public transport it is less than 30 minutes. Enjoying Amsterdam city center life on a typical Dutch houseboat during your stay will make your visit truly special!
The supermarket "SPAR" is located at only three minutes walking from the houseboat.
