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.
Het weekend op de boot van Derk begon met een bosje tulpen en de sleutels van de buurvrouw.
En dat was het begin van een heerlijk weekendje Amsterdam. Een weekend waarin Derk's woonboot zeker aan bijgedragen heeft.
Een mooie ruime boot met een goed bed en prima sanitair.
En op loopafstand van Carré en het Rijksmuseum. En ook niet onbelangrijk, de plaatselijke horeca.
Kortom, een aanrader.
Accueil agréable, péniche conviviale, situation idéale pour découvrir Amsterdam
Lovely to stay in a houseboat in Amsterdam. It felt authentic without unnecessary frills and with necessary comforts. If anyone is worried about staying in the depths of winter, don't be - it's centrally heated and very warm. Derk was busy making music but Shelley from the boat next door/dock gave us a warm welcome. We are 2 adult friends with an 8 yr old and there was plenty of space. Only positives to say really!
Totally loved our houseboat experience! It has been the highlight of our trip so far, very cosy and a lovely quiet sanctuary to retreat to at the end of a long day sightseeing. We wish we could have stayed longer. Super comfy bed and all the amenities you need for a pleasurable stay. Thanks Derk
Derek's houseboat is clean and comfortable..
and warm..very important in Janury ! The
Location is (email hidden)ose to the Rijksmuseum
and the concert hall and just a short walk to
Rembrandt square. The Tram lines are also close so no problem getting around.
Derk is a very friendly and welcoming host. He will make you feel right at home in Amsterdam.
Derk was very welcoming and friendly, and the houseboat is charming, convenient and well located in Amsterdam. The kitchen is convenient and the bed is very comfortable.
And all for a very reasonable price.
We (a couple with a baby) are very happy with our stay, and we would gladly rent Derk's houseboat next time we go to Amsterdam !
We had a great stay in Derk's lovely houseboat. It was cosy, warm and the bed was also very comfortable.
Its a perfect way to experience Amsterdam, close to the city center. We hope to come back in summer!
