Abbiamo passato cinque splendide notti sull'houseboat di Robert: era la prima volta per noi ed è stata un'esperienza fantastica. La location è perfetta, in un canale super centrale, bellissimo, tranquillo. L'houseboat è molto spaziosa, ben arredata, semplice ma fornita di ogni dettaglio, Robert ci ha fornito tutto ciò di cui avevamo bisogno, è stato molto gentile e disponibile.
Passare cinque notti su un'houseboat di questo tipo ti fa sentire molto olandese, è un modo diverso di vivere la splendida città di Amsterdam.
We had a fabulous time on Robert's boat! It was just as described-cosy, well-equipped and spacious, and with a lovely personal touch. We definitely felt more a part of Amsterdam than we would have in a hotel and are definite Air B n B converts! Our only complaint would be that the bed was so comfy we didn't want to get up each morning!
Robert was extremely helpful every step of the way, and went out of his way to help us with our arrangements and make life easier for us. We ended up being really late due to traffic and an issue with the park and ride, but he was very patient, despite it making him late for a dinner arrangement which we were really greatful for.
We genuinely had a fantastic time on the boat and our friends who were staying in a nearbye hotel for the same price had serious boat envy and will definitely be boating on their next visit!
A fantastic experience all round!
Great location near everything and yet quiet and super safe feeling. Beautiful houseboat which looks just as it does in the photos with everything we needed and more to have a wonderful weekend away. Lovely stay, would recommend!
Stayed here while at a conference for just under a week. Super comfortable bed and interesting decor. Robert's houseboat beats any hotel or stationary lodging in Amsterdam. It's on a quiet canal but walkable to lots of sights, nightlife, and bus/tram lines.
A perfect place to stay for an Amsterdam visit. Robert was faultless, very accommodating and we felt very comfortable staying in his lovely house boat.
Robert was great! Very helpful with good restaurants to try and sights to see in the city. We LOVED the houseboat! Fantastic location and spacious. We enjoyed people-watching on the canal and had a great trip. Will definitely visit again!
Ravissante péniche. Robert nous a très bien accueillis, il avait même acheté des œufs, du jus d'orange et des gaufres. La petite terrasse est aussi très agréable lorsqu'il y a un peu de soleil. Le coin, moins touristique, mais tout aussi agréable permet de découvrir Amsterdam sous un autre angle.
What a great time we had staying in Robert's canal boat. Robert was a great host - showing us around, giving us directions and ideas of what to do and see.
He made us feel very welcome. The canal boat was very comfortable, and very easy to get to (right next to the tram). It was in a great area - very safe and very quiet.
We loved it!!
My husband and I spent three lovely nights on this houseboat. We appreciated Robert's thoughtful touches, like the maps and guidebooks he left for us, and the breakfast items he stocked the kitchen with (although, to be honest, we were so eager to try out the lovely restaurants and cafes on Utrechtstraat that we never really ate breakfast on the boat). The listing does not exaggerate about the excellent location - Prinsengracht is a gorgeous canal that is near to everything, and we barely used any public transportation at all, since we could easily walk to the Museum District, the Jordaan, etc. We'll miss this cute little boat.
We had a marvelous stay in Amsterdam and the magic boathouse fitted perfectly into the picture. It has character and a strong personal touch, not to mention the bang-in-the-heart-of-Amsterdam location.
Robert was very warm, genuine and helpful and made sure his home was our home too. An amazing experience that will stay with us for a long time...
