This was my first booking through trip adviser. I wanted to find a houseboat for my trip to Amsterdam, so I looked here.
Booking was easy and quick. Frank gave me precise instructions on how to get there, and how to get inside.
I didn't follow his instructions because I had to do it my way. It would have been much easier to take the bus from the train station, but I took a taxi. I took the bus when I left.
The boat is fabulous. It's easy to get to. It's much bigger than I expected. I had tagged a couple of days in Amsterdam on another trip, and it was wonderful to be able to get out of a hotel and relax in this houseboat.
You can cook and do your laundry. The furnishings are comfortable and roomy. I slept like a baby. Everything you need is provided. It's clean and the shower is fairly roomy and the water is hot-hot-hot.
I'd love to return and stay longer. By the way, I get vestibular migraine and was worried about the boat rocking and messing with me. I never noticed it move, and I get seasick on elevators.
You're in the Northwest section of Amsterdam here, near the maritime museum. You can walk down Prins Hendrikkade then take a left to easily get anywhere you want to get in the city.
My only advice to other travelers is the ceiling isn't going to work if you're very very tall. Beyond that the whole thing was a heavenly experience. I'm looking forward to returning.
An amazing place to stay in Amsterdam. Wonderful and helpful host. Couldn't recommend this place more!
Perfect spot to explore Amsterdam and feel part of it onboard a houseboat. Sitting on deck with the passing boats and the various water birds was a lovely experience. At night the boats are quite lively and by day very relaxed. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the facilities are good. The beds are comfortable, the sofa a bit less so but okay and the gas cooker is fine with a basic electric oven. The pump that removes waste and water is a little noisy but this only really affects the child's bed at night and wasn't a real issue for us. We couldn't have been happier with our stay and would return again.

My freinds and I spent 3 nights and they were awesome :) The boot was very clean and everything worked perfectly :) A supermarket isnt to far away and you dont have to walk to far to get to where you want to go to :) There was a bascet full of brochures of all the places you can go to :) All in all a great place to stay :)
We loved our weekend here. Lovely boat in a quiet but central location.
Everything we needed and only a ten minute walk from the station.
