The space
From the houseboat you are at few minutes walk from Anne Frank's house and Westerchurch. You are surrounded by nice restaurants, galeries and boutiques. On the corner is a supermarket that is opened 7 days a week. Inside the houseboat you find a bright, tastefully furnished living with windows all around overlooking the canal, a fully equiped modern open plan kitchen, a washing machine, a separate bedroom with a comfortable double bed, a bathroom and toilet. The extra luxury is your private terrace overlooking the water. After a day exploring the city, you can sit outside, relax and enjoy the ducks swimming towards you to say hello. Come and stay on this fantastic location: historical, central and yet quiet and safe, and enjoy the feeling of living like an Amsterdam local in your private houseboat

This was a truly unique experience to stay on a houseboat. I grew up in Amsterdam but never had the opportunity to stay or even visit a houseboat. I stayed here for 10 days at the end of April and was very fortunate to be blessed with great weather. My stay was excellent and the houseboat contributed a large part to that. It is located in one of the best locations of the city: next to the Jordaan and close to the Westermarkt (with Anne Frank house). It is very quiet on the water even though the city is hustling around you. Sitting outside, looking out over the water is a great experience. Weekends the canal is a bit busier with lots of small boats coming through but it create a unique atmosphere that you will not find in any of the hotels. The houseboat itself is unique so it is hard to describe, it is not small, but it does create an intimate atmosphere. I can see it would be great for a romantic stay (even though I stayed alone Lachebekje (zwart-wit)). The layout makes that the sleeping part is separated from the kitchen/living part even though there are no doors between the sections. The bed is excellent, the shower strong and hot, the kitchen fully equipped, lots of books to read and music to play. But most of the time you will be sitting outside enjoying the view of the canal and the sounds of the city. The nights and morning could be a bit chilly but heather worked just fine. I would recommend the houseboat to anyone who would like ta truly unique Amsterdam experience.

What an amazing boat and location! We spent most of our visit sitting on the back deck...and watching the symphony of the city happen around us. The bed was comfy (and I am picky), the fresh flowers were nice. We also enjoyed feeding the momma and daddy ducks with their babies. We will return and we hope the boat is available when we do.

The houseboat was awesome - everything we expected. Fake was a wonderful hosts and the houseboat had everything we needed. We had a small problem with the heat and Fake came over so quickly. It was really a simple button to reset that was all but I hadn't figured it out. The location is fantastic too - really I think best neighborhood in Amsterdam. What a treat to experience Amsterdam this way. I highly recommend it.

The houseboat was really very comfortable , I made you feel at home and the place where it is located is simply spectacular, close to restaurants, shops - it is even made to a weekly market in the area where you can buy fresh food products, bio...etc. A family of ducks visits you every day and they die for the bread!!!

It was all perfect, the photos reflect the boat realistically, Fake was reliable and very nice in contact, the owner very service oriented and friendly. The bed is very comfortable, the equipment completely adequate. The location is really absolutely central and everything is within walking distance. We can definitely recommend the place and will be back if the boat is free.
