Everything as it looks. Diana was delightful. Having 2 WCs was very convenient for getting ready each day. Spent every morning and evening with sliding doors open and coffee on the deck. Missed the really hot weather so very lucky and there were plenty of fans for moving the air around. Location is very close to many museums and restaurants. Close to activity but far enough to the edge of the canal rings to be quiet. My first trip to Amsterdam I wanted to stay on a beautiful boat-I got my wish!
House Boat Heaven!
It was a peaceful stay in a beautiful, local neighborhood. The houseboat was gorgeous, well appointed, and very clean.
We will be back next summer!
Staying on the canal in this beautiful houseboat was a great Amsterdam experience. The houseboat is as pictured and described and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay. It is also in one of the nicest neighborhoods, filled with many cafes, shops, bakeries and street markets. We had a wonderful time and would stay here again!
Great location and very comfortable house boat.
Sitting on the deck waving at the boats that go by day and night is fun and makes for a unique experience. Even when it rained it was nice to look out at the rain drops on the canal. Great location with easy access to most points of interest. Will stay here again.
Houseboat Sumatra is by far the best houseboat we have stayed on in Amsterdam.
The houseboat is in a wonderful location. So easy to get to and from. Away from the crowd but central enough to walk within minutes to so many great sights and places. Our booking was handled perfectly by Peter and Diana and indeed our thanks. The actually houseboat has everything and we were not left wanting. Our only major issue is we had to leave having enjoyed four wonderful days. Thank you for all as it was perfect and already are looking to return next year. Marks out of 10 = 9.9.
Beautiful place with a great view!
We just got back from a week on this wonderful houseboat, and I’m already missing it! Peter did an amazing job with the design of this houseboat, and Diane greeted us when we arrived to give us a very through orientation to the place. We went out exploring the wonderful city of Amsterdam during the day, and looked forward to coming home every night to enjoy watching all the boats go down the canal. The fireplace was a cozy addition, and easy to use. The boat was well stocked, and had everything we needed, and lots of shops and cafes very close by. Would recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Amsterdam to experience life as a true Amsterdammer!
Houseboat-Apartment SUMATRA is docked in the famous "Jordaan district". Many attractions are nearby.
Here are some examples: the Anne Frank House, the Red Light district, the Royal Palace, the famous "Nine Streets", the Dam Square, the Van Gogh Museum, the "Wester Market" on Monday, the market at the Lindengracht, the Westerpark and much more.
The weekly market is around the corner every Monday and Saturday. It's a great environment, where many things are to see!
The surrounding area is beautiful with old canal houses, old bridges and cobbled streets.
It is a joy to walk through the narrow streets along the canals and enjoy the beauty of this beautiful old part of the city.
At only 5 minutes' walk you will find a quiet park where you can enjoy and enjoy the channels by yourself.
