Interaction with Guests
I will be available for any questions, but won't be present in the houseboat.
This lovely houseboat is is well located in a neighborhood called “Oud West”. It’s just a short walk from many restaurants, cafes and shops, and within walking distance of Dam square
The neighborhood is the perfect base for experiencing all that Amsterdam has to offer with it's fantastic cafes, restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Oud West is a vibrant multicultural area and is located very close to the city centre. From your doorstep it's just a 2 minute walk to the area of "Jordaan", that oozes atmosphere with its narrow streets, picturesque canals, brown cafes, art galleries and unique shops.
The city center is on walking distance.
If you don't feel like walking, there is a tram stop around the corner, so the city center and the airport are easy to reach.
Unfortunately parking is quite expensive in our neighborhood, but if you don't need your car during your stay I can recommend cheaper places on the border of town.
If you are interested in renting a bicycle during your stay let me know. I can have them delivered to the houseboat for you.

A lovely houseboat, good location and Annelies and the team were lovely.
My family had a lovely time in Amsterdam.
Nous avons passé 5 jours à Amsterdam en Février .Nous avons apprécié l'intérieur du houseboat , le reflet des photos ; très agréable , spacieux et lumineux , de plus joliment décoré . Il est très bien situé à 15/20 mn à pieds des sites et musées . Nos ados ont aimé l'originalité de dormir le long des canaux . De plus des restaurants ou des cafés bruns sympas sont à proximité . A conseiller vivement .
Houseboat Aviva was a dream come true. It was the perfect home base in Amsterdam, near a grocery store, key attractions, and very quiet! Annalise was very accommodating and responsive. Because of the bunkbeds in the colorful childrens room, it would be a perfect solution for a family with two small children. our daughters are in their 20s and chose to scrunch into the bunkbeds, but easily could have stayed on the hide a bed. I love Amsterdam!
We recommend Annelies Houseboat since it's very nice. Clean, well kept and in a very good position: supermarkets, bike rental, bakeries, restaurants are within 5 minute walk.
City center is also not far away.
Watching swans and ducks swimming outside of the windows is also very nice.
I had a great experience -highly recommended! Convenient walk to prime locations like the Dam and to be able to wake up to swans and ducks swimming past the houseboat is truly a unique and exciting experience! Communication with the host was prompt and detailed and felt at ease!
De boot licht op een super locatie in de stad, alles is te voet bereikbaar en de boot ligt toch in een rustige buurt. Alles is aanwezig, zelfs lakens voor het bed en badhanddoeken. Ruime keuken en living en badkamer! We waren op vakantie met 2 peuters en deze boot was een ideale verblijfplaats met de kindjes. Vriendelijke ontvangst en nette boot! Zeker een aanrader!
