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 persons. tv 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.
What a treat to tell our friends that we were able to stay in a houseboat on our honeymoon! Derk's place was so spacious and very convenient (within walking distance to several museums and many restaurants). Public transport was easily accessible also. Derk was very accommodating to our check in and check out schedule which was great. Thanks Derk!
Everything perfect. The houseboat is well located to visit Amsterdam downtown and very quiet and pleasant. You can warm the houseboat very quickly. Derk was very helpful and he is a person you can trust.
A cute house boat on a cute quiet canal. My favorite moment of the trip was waking up in the morning and having coffee outside on the boat, watching the ducks play in the canal and the view of the Rijksmuseum in the distance. Tip: It's much cheaper to take a tram from Centraal Station than a taxi. Derk was a great host, and very attentive to what we needed!
Booked a two night stay which turned out to have been double booked by airbnb.
Derk handled it perfectly by providing us a different boat for each night at the same location. Would definitely recommand staying here.
Derk's houseboat was fantastic! When we first arrived, Derk was there to greet us and provide helpful tips about the city. I couldn't have imagined a better place to stay for our weekend away in Amsterdam.
We stayed on Derk's boat for two nights and absolutely loved it. The boat is easy to get to by bus from the main train station and right near all manner of shops and sights. It was very spacious and comfortable, and was almost more like an apartment than a boat. I was a little worried about the toilet/shower situation beforehand (from other boat experiences) but they worked great! Derk was also easy to get ahold of and flexible with our travel schedule. I would highly recommend this place!
Ein schönes Hausboot, mit einem sehr freundlichen und sympathischen Gastgeber. Die Lage ist perfekt - ruhig, jedoch trotzdem direkt am Zentrum (5-10 Minuten zu Fuß).
Jederzeit gerne wieder :)
Wonderful! Perfect Location and perfect host!
Derek was a great host! The ship was a great way to see Amsterdam. Derek was very friendly and gave us great advice about where to go in the city. I would recommend his ship to anyone.
Wunderschönes Hausboot und auch noch in einer Top-Lage! Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wiederkommen.
