True Amsterdam feel!
Great property. Myself and four friends stayed here for two nights. The property was clean, comfortable and exactly what we needed. Staying on the canal gave it a true Amsterdam feel.
Lots of nice local bars and eateries, including the windmill brewery, and only a twenty minute walk into the centre (or 6 euro Uber)!
Hosts were charming and very helpful. Would certainly recommend.
Very clean and homely wanted for nothing
A family reunion from across the Atlantic was made very enjoyable living in this little houseboat we had plenty of room and was comfortable.
Nina was very kind and helpful in the knowledge we could contact her any time we didn’t need too but good to know she was our safety net.
Thankyou Peter and Nina xx
Great property for a short stay. Everything you need and being a houseboat really adds something.
I have given a 4 star rating and it might have been 5 except that on day 1 we had our car broken into outside the property. Obviously that sort of messed up our short stay a bit especially as this was on Christmas Eve and I had to find a company to put in a new windscreen (Carglass were excellent - hope you don't need them). The repairers said that foreign plated cars are targeted and suggested having some dutchplates to stick on when you park and leave parcel shelf back to show there is nothing in there. Also said Amsterdam east is notorious for break ins and we gather this is not the only time outside the property. Moved it across to a residential area for rest of stay and no problems.
Apart from the property was spot on and great access to the city with nearby trams.
Unique, competitively priced lodging
Cozy, comfortable houseboat apartment with parking in a great part of the city at a price better than many hotels in the same neighborhood.
Great place. Excellent direction to boat. Not one bad thing to say about it
Incredible, convenient, and comfortable.
The houseboat was comfortable, clean, and homey. Four of us stayed in the houseboat in September 2017 and we did not feel crowded. Waking up and looking out the window to see the ducks right outside the window was such a peaceful way to wake up. Loved it.
The location was perfect. A short walk over the canal brought us to Tram 14 which, took us to Dam Square, Rembrandt Square, or Central Station All within 15 minutes. Just down the road is the windmill brewery and a good restaurant S&W (Schnitzel & Weitzel). The best pretzel bread cheese sandwich, apple streusel (tastes like Christmas), and a delicious chicken and avocado sandwich.
I look forward to returning to Amsterdam and will stay in the houseboat if there is availability. It was perfect.
The nearest supermarket is in Javastreet, 400 metrs away, 5 minutes by foot along the railway.
The nearest Restaurant is "Pompstation" over the brige to the right, 2 min by foot.
The beer browery "Het IJ" is 5 min by foot
