“Wonderful stay in beautiful houseboat.”
Reviewed 10 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed from 30 August to 6 September 2014. The houseboat was clean, light and airy with everything that we needed for a comfortable stay. Our only visitors were a swan tapping with its beak on the bedroom window asking for food and several ducks swimming around. We spent loads of time feeding them (Jenny had left food) and it was really relaxing. All the main sites are within walking distance as is Centraal Station for trains to the airport and other cities. We visited Haarlem and Alkmaar by train and also took a tour to Marken, Volendam and the windmills. We were blessed with warm sunny weather all week (24C) so we were exceptionally lucky. I am back at work now but wish I was back at Oasis Houseboat again! A wonderful holiday and many thanks to Jennie - nothing was too much trouble for her...

“Absolute brilliant experience of boathouse.”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We been looking for appartment at Amsterdam for 3 nights and this was our second trip since June was high season we couldn't book the place we stayed last time. This boat house came out of no where in TripAdvisor so we proceed with our booking everything was simply easy and since it was thru TripAdvisor your money is protected. Upon arrival at amsterdam airport I text Jenny of our arrival and the same thing frm central train station. Its about 15 mins walk very easy to find she came with big smile within a minutes. She explained everything abt accommodation local tips for shopping everything you could ask for.

Place itself is located in central part of amsterdam with easy reach of shops bars n everything u need on ur holiday. Best part of this stay was boat passing by thro u could see ppl waving at u just a nice feeling if u never stay on a boathouse like us before. Everything is like ur normal appartment ya u do get duck knocking ur window for food in the morning but Jenny lefy a bucket full of bread.
Definitely return next time. Thank you Jenny had a brilliant stay.

“The Oasis houseboat was the perfect accomodation to celebrate King's Day in Amsterdam!”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

4 of us celebrated the King's Day weekend in Amsterdam this year and Jennie's houseboat turned out to be the perfect accommodation. It was already a pleasure to see the city from the streets and bridges, but adding in the extra dimensionality of experiencing it from the water was truly amazing. We felt like a part of the city while staying in the boat which in not always possible from a traditional hotel or apartment. The location was perfect - both right in the middle of the city yet on a small quiet canal where you can relax after a long day or night on the town. The boat is small, but not cramped and has been cleverly set up to comfortably accommodate 4 adults. Details like a dishwasher, microwave/conventional combination oven, fold out kitchen table and a very comfortable sofa/sleeper are all little things that you don't think about but when you have them and they actually work make a good vacation that much better. Jennie is a great host who knows everything there is to know about having a great time in Amsterdam. The Oasis houseboat is definitely the way to go if you value character over conventionality.
