Madeleine et Christopher nous ont mis dans les meilleures conditions pour notre séjour. Ils sont très arrangeants pour les remises de clé et le départ et ils ont préparé leur maison pour que nous soyons tout de suite à l'aise.
La description de la location est en tout point conforme.
Nous recommandons avec beaucoup d'enthousiasme ce merveilleux houseboat.
What a lovely house in a lovely location. We spent a fantastic week in Stockholm as the setting for the house is perfect - the marina location is open, light, and has very easy access to all that Stockholm has to offer. The house itself has everything you would need for a comfortable, luxury holiday stay, plus Madeleine & Christopher are perfect hosts who are so helpful and welcoming. Thank you!
Super séjour chez Madeleine et sa famille : un house boat très confortable, spacieux, agréable, très propre, fonctionnel etc ; le bonheur d'être au contact permanent de l'eau et de se baigner matin et soir ; un environnement paisible et accueillant ; métro très pratique et proche pour rejoindre le centre ville ; de même pour le supermarché ; enfin, un accueil très chaleureux et gentil de Madeleine
OOOOOHHHH it was realy fantastic! Christopher gave us a warm welcome, and the fitst thing he did was to give our three children a icecream...he could not do anithing wrong from that moment on. the boathouse is the best place we have ever been! The fridge was loaded whit goods, and they even chared their wine with us. The location is perfect...we did everthing by bike the hole holiday with our children of 9, 11 and 15. With the bike you are on less then 10 minutes in the centre of Stockholm. Sometimes we eat at the boat, and there are 2 shops near the boat with al nice exotic food, and the kitche is a dream to cook in. We went also to different restaurants in the neigbourhood, realy nice. We enjoyed the view on the terras watching the boats passing by, and we went also kayaking. It was our first time with airnb, and the difference with renting a vacation house is that you have not a house, but realy a home! Thank you very much christopher and madeleine fo charing your home with us. always welcome in belgium. Big hug from Bart, Brunhilde, Ibe Flo and Lotta and bog kisses for the two girls!
A very beautiful houseboat situated in a nice surrounding environment. Convenient location for food, metro station, and recreational activities. Actual housecoat is very beautiful, better than the hosts' description. :) Host was very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the luxurious houseboat. Many thanks to Christopher and Madeleine.
We have had a few Airbnb experience by now and by far this was the most enjoyable. The houseboat is a truly special place and is a fantastic alternative to a conventional hotel room or apartment. It is clear, spacious and quiet. The fact that the bedrooms were down stairs was a plus, since it meant that we could put the children to bed and continue our evening upstairs, either on the patio or the living room. There is ample space in the kitchen and it is well equipped, including a great espresso machine. Madeleine and Christopher were kind enough to leave some cheese, grapes, milk, and coffee for us upon our arrival which was a nice gesture. I would certainly stay here again. In fact, I could imagine myself living on such a houseboat!
We had a wonderful weekend in the houseboat of Madeleine and Christopher. Love and light for sure. It was great to come 'home' after a day in the city. The perfect stay for our family. Enough space, great kitchen, good beds, warm welcome. Nanda
We are a family of four living on our beloved houseboat in the center of Stockholm. Summertime in the marina is a lot of boats, kayaks and swimming from the deck, wintertime is ice-skating, lots of snow and cosy nights in front of the fireplace. Christopher do allot of kitesurfing and basketball, works as a comedian and producer. Madeleine is into qigong and works as a motivational speaker. We love welcoming new guests from around the world - proud of our beautiful city of Stockholm and of our houseboat, Love & Light!
