Unfortunately we didn't meet the hosts but the boat was easy to find and instructions were clear. And it's a lovely little place if you like modern living, want to have a break from the bustle of the centre but be close enough buy to walk or cycle in. Only note is that we were slightly disappointed that the main photo - and it's beautiful terrace- isn't actually part of the property, and it was a 25 min walk to the closest shop to even get some milk on arrival.
The place is exactly as described. It's in a wonderful neighbourhood away from the bustling crowd. Bikes are essential if you want to explore the city so that makes this houseboat a bonus. We had some tire issues with two of the bikes but Harry was very quick to respond. We had a great time in Amsterdam and would recommend the houseboat as a great option. One of the bonuses of the place was being near the Olympic training centre that happens to be in a forest close to the houseboat. We went there in evening and morning for workouts and to enjoy the scenery.
We had a great stay. The boat was modern and well decorated. It was very clean. It was easy to find from the directions. It took us about 30-40 mins to walk into the city and the tram was also very close. The local area was very interesting and some lovely restaurants within 15 mins walk. I had a small issue with the parking as I have a right hand drive car. After opening the barrier it closed before I could drive away. Fortunately I had a second token so managed to get out. There were 2 double beds and a spacious bathroom. Harry was happy to loan us a double air bed to give us flexibility in sleeping arrangements. The bikes were Dutch bikes so if you are under 5 foot 4 inches bring your own or try platform shoes! The kitchen was well equipped. No freezer or microwave but there was plenty of tea and coffee and fridge space. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Harry and Anna.
Wonderful hosts. A lovely houseboat in a quiet part of town, a perfect home away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Very clean, comfortable and well decorated. Excellent communication and advice given.
The houseboat is in a quiet neighborhood jam-packed with houseboats. This houseboat is one of the new and very modern ones. Everything was according to the description apart from one bike having a flat tyre. Also note that the nice deck seen on the photo is not accessible since the houseboat is divided in two separate units and the deck belongs to the other unit. But there's a little sundeck on the roof at least.
