Interaction with Guests
I will be available for any questions, but won't be present in the houseboat.
The apartment is located in the Oud West area of the city, which is hip and trendy, full of bars, cafes, restaurants and shops; the well known Ten Kate Market with over 100 stalls is located just around the corner.
Amsterdam's renowned Jordaan district, known for its canals lined with cafes and boutiques is about 15 minutes walk or 4 minutes by tram which stops nearby.
"Leidseplein" the city's night life area you can be reached by foot in less than 15 minutes.
With a tram stop around the corner the city center and the airport are easy to reach.
Unfortunately parking is quite expensive in our neighborhood, but if you don't need your car during your stay I can recommend you cheaper places on the border of town.
If you are interested in renting a bicycle during your stay let me know. I can have them delivered to the houseboat for you.

We were met at the houseboat and shown how everything works, and we're given useful local info about supermarkets and restaurants. ripple has everything you need to have a pleasant stay. the area is quiet and the ducks and geese are the only sound as you go to sleep. great location and easy to get to using the tram. highly recommended!
Annelies' friend Cleo welcomed us and made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Houseboat Ripple is amazing! It's so spacious and light. We loved watching the boats go by. The neighbourhood was perfect for us - near a tram stop, supermarket and some good restaurants. Thank you so much for an amazing stay - we will be coming back soon! Meanwhile, we recommend Houseboat Ripple to anyone.
Peaceful light and airy. I've always wanted to experience Amsterdam on a houseboat and I'm glad I did
Love the peaceful
Location and views into the water with ducks and swans dropping by
Nous avons été très bien accueilli, et aider dans notre orientation vers l'Houseboat. Ce dernier est spacieux bien équipé et bien situé dans Amsterdam.
There was some confusion in that upon landing at Schiphol, we were unable to locate the taxi service I had booked per IDams recommendation. Unfortunately when I called IDam to relay our delay and say we would just be leaving airport with alternative transportation, the receptionist said we had called earlier? Very confusing and resulted in person meeting us at boat a long wait. Other than that, everything else relatively smooth and good location.
We had the best time on the 'RIPPLE' houseboat!!! It was easy to access, plenty of room for the 5 of us and it was lovely to sit out on the window sills and talk to all of the people going past on the canals!!
Das Office, wo wir unsere Schlüssel für das Hausboot abholen sollten, war dank der Beschreibung wirklich schnell zu finden. Annelies hat uns gleich herzlich empfangen und wir durften unser Gepäck bis zum Check-In bei ihr im Office lagern. Sie gab uns einen super Frühstückstipp und als wir anschließend unser Gepäck wieder abholten, bekamen wir eine ausführliche Erklärung wie wir unser Hausboot erreichen. Auch jegliche andere Fragen, hat sie uns sofort beantwortet und wir bekamen auch noch einige Tipps für Lokale und Supermärkte in der Nähe unserer Unterkunft.
Das Hausboot war wie auf den Bildern und wir waren wirklich begeistert. Für vier Personen perfekt :) So konnten wir unsere 3 Nächte in Amsterdam in vollen Zügen genießen. Auch der Service mit den Fahrrädern hat gut geklappt, die Räder warteten bereits auf der Terrasse als wir ankamen. Wer einmal auf einem Hausboot übernachten will, dem kann ich Annelies' The Ripple wärmstens empfehlen.
