Our recently renovated guesthouse is situated in our garden, not far from the houseboat where we live in with our family. The bathroom is 10 meter away from the guesthouse in our entrance hall of our houseboat, for which you do not need to enter the houseboat and will never disturb us.
It is a quiet place not far from town, by bike it take only 15 -20 minutes to the center. It is a wonderful combination of being in a quiet place near the river and having all the attractions of Amsterdam nearby.

Marga and Rico’s place was a great value in terms of cost and giving you sizable space to stay. It’s a little outside of town, which is good if you’re okay ubering or bicycling downtown. Also you have to cross a small part of the yard to get to the bathroom, which is a little…

Friendly people in the airport helped me get the right train and stop. I went the wrong way walking there and so it took me quite awhile but the walk was beautiful mostly along walking or biking paths and canals so I enjoyed it however I was only carrying a day pack. If you don't…

I stayed in Marga and Rico's guesthouse with my brother as we explored Amsterdam. Their guesthouse is located behind their houseboat and is a rustic, cozy space (with a piano!). The one thing to note is that it is located about a 20 min bike ride from central Amsterdam and a 20…
