The houseboat was fantastic, well laid out, well equipped and it was slightly bigger than it looks in the images.
A really lovely area with lots of nice restaurants and boutique shops close by. We could walk to anywhere we wanted to go and although not far from the busy popular tourist areas, the boat is located in a quiet area so we slept well.
Our host very kindly let us have a late check out and leave our bags on board, as the boat was not booked out the next day.
We loved living in a houseboat on the water, and loved shopping in the neighborhood. The location couldn't have been better, but it was difficult to find space to store our things - we ended up leaving almost everything in our suitcases. We had a few problems, but the owner responded right away. Beautiful view at night from our window, and comfortable bed. We enjoyed buying prepared food and eating at "home" in the evenings. We loved Amsterdam.
Lovely boat owned by lovely people in a beautiful part of Amsterdam .
Quiet canal just outside hustle and bustle in which to explore this beautiful city while having a beautiful retreat when need to relax .
From booking to arrival Claire & Gwen were amazing even allowing us to check in very early in the morning an drop our bags off .. boat was spotless and in the perfect location 15 mins from dam square but in such a quiet location .. planning our next trip back already ... Best host iv found in Amsterdam
Lovely little houseboat tucked away on one of the canals surrounding the centre of Amsterdam.
I had a very pleasant stay of just under a week in this apartment. It is loaded with all of the comforts you'd expect to find at home including a fully stocked kitchen for all your cooking needs and a very large jacuzzi bathtub at the back of the boat.
The neighbourhood is very quiet which is a bit of a surprise especially with it being so close to Haarlemmerdijk.
There's plenty of grocery shops nearby including a local Albert Heijn and a fantastic coffee shop just around the corner serving the best wakeup juice!
Overall I had a wonderful stay here and I will be looking to return in the near future.
P.S the owner was lovely and had all the time in the world to chat and show me around the houseboat.
