romantic experience in the center of amsterdam.
a quite and private place near Rijksmuseum and famous squares.
the boat has a bathroom,one bedroom and a couch for sleeping so there is room for three (website hidden) and internet are available and the kitchen has an oven and microwave ready to use.
the neighbourhood has nice restaurants, bars, shops and around the corner walking five minutes along the beautiful reguliersgracht you enter the rembrandtplein.
this is a remodeled houseboat that still has its historic character. built in 1920, it was used to transport potatoes, sand, and all manner of food and industrial goods. the pictures show one of the original families that lived and worked on the boat in all of Holland. it is one of the best preseved houseboats of its age in Amsterdam.
Very friendly host and great, beautiful, clean boat - thank you Derk! We enjoyed our stay (3 nights) very much and would be happy to come again.

Derk was an excellent host and the boathouse was perfect. Charming place that's conveniently located. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Derk!
Such a fun and awesome place to stay in Amsterdam. Thoroughly enjoyed myself.
The houseboat has everything you could need, and was deliciously warm and cosy in winter. Very well located, central, in a picturesque part of town.
Desk was a great host, gave a thorough introduction to not only the accommodation, but also the city itself....even when I arrived quite late at night.
Thanks for an amazing experience!
My husband and I stayed at Derk's boat for three days in December and absolutely loved it! We found the place spotless, with all the necessary amenities (good coffee maker, hot shower, great bed, wifi.. etc.). We felt at home right away and couldn't get enough of the views from the boat onto our peaceful canal... I mean, you can see the towers of the Rijksmuseum from it - you cannot beat that!
It is a great place to explore Amsterdam. There are tram stops close by, a grocery store 5 minutes away, nice cafés and bars close by too. Derk is a great host, easy to communicate with and very accommodating. This is a very special place to stay in and I highly recommend it.
We definitely liked our stay in Amsterdam on Derk's houseboat! It was great experience. Derk was very nice and hospitable, he advised us some nice local cafes and bars. The boat itself is very cosy and comfortable. It is located on quite canal so you won't be disturbed by crowds of tourists and could have some privacy, but if you want to go to some central streets it takes about 5-10 minutes by foot. We enjoyed our weekend in Amsterdam very much thanks to Derk and his beautiful boat.
Derk's houseboat is fantastic and located on a beautiful and quiet canal that's still close to everything. He was very helpful and our arrival and departure were smooth and easy.
Das Hausboot ist sehr gemütlich, überraschend hell durch die Deckenlichter und wurde durch die Gasheizung sehr schnell warm - auch im kalten (website hidden)ßerdem ist das Hausboot für 2 Personen sehr (website hidden) ist sehr ruhig gelegen und trotzdem nur 5 bis 10 Minuten zu Fuß vom Altstadt-Zentrum von Amsterdam entfernt.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt - vielen Dank, Derk!
Sehr zu empfehlen!
Très belle péniche dans un quartier calme d'Amsterdam… Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Amsterdam. Derk est très sympathique et serviable.
Bref… A refaire !
What a perfect way to spend time in beautiful Amsterdam.
The boat is central, quiet, well equipped and comfortable.
I would love to stay there again.
