This was the first time we tried a boat house and it was a fantastic experience for the family. The host was very welcoming and he went out of his way to help us. We came to visit Amsterdam, it was easy to get into the city and to the airport at night but it it was also great chilling out in the evening on the boat.

    This houseboat stay was so lovely. Koen and Olivia were very helpful and arranging a time to check in was easy. The little touches like local beers in the fridge or umbrellas to borrow were great extras. The houseboat is easily reachable from the city centre by bus or tram, but also not that far to walk. The houseboat was so clean, comfortable and perfect for a couple of nights. We loved being on the water and feeling like we got a real Amsterdam experience.
