We had some fantastic days in Amsterdam on Derk's amazing houseboat. It is situated in a very quiet canal in walking distance to some of the most interesting areas in Amsterdam. The boat itself is charming, nice, and very well equipped. Also, Derk is a very nice, friendly and helpful host!
Superbe accueil à notre arrivée, Derk nous attendait sur sa péniche. Il nous expliqué les modalités d'utilisation et le fonctionnement des différents appareils, cuisine, salle de bains, chauffage.....
Il avait préparé thé, café, tout pour le petit déjeuner, également plan des moyens de transports et explication du quartier et de la ville et de ses attraits touristiques.
We had a great time. it's quiet at night and all attractions of Amsterdam can be reached by food.
We had a wonderful stay on this unique canal boat in the centre of Amsterdam. It was clean with a great shower and comfy bed . Derk was very helpful especially when leaving our bags after check out. Fantastic experience !
Such an awesome place. I didn't want to leave. Great location in a quieter part of Amsterdam within walking distance of everything. Derk is a very friendly host. If I ever return, I will try to stay here again.
The houseboat is brilliant! We loved our stay here - 3 nights was not long enough! The city of Amsterdam is amazing, alternative and very fascinating. Staying on a houseboat in Amsterdam was just surreal! We felt very special. The houseboat is in a really good location, close to the city. It has everything you need. I could think of no better place to stay when in Amsterdam!
Derk was a fantastic host, very quick to respond to questions, gave us good directions, and was waiting for us when we arrived at the boat, very friendly and welcoming. The boat is cute and in good shape, traditional wooden ambience with portholes overlooking the canal. It is set on a convenient yet also quiet corner where two canals come together so it was very picturesque. The double bed is very comfortable, and the couch in the living room includes a twin-sized bed so it was the perfect size for the three of us. Derk provided everything we needed and also left a bottle of wine in the fridge. Shower was strong and hot. We could park our rented bikes right beside the boat. Derk also was flexible about check-out time. In all, a first-rate experience!
The boat was ideally located in the museum district, 10 mins walk from all attractions. Tram transport was at the end of the street, making access to the centre very easy. It was incredibly quiet for a city centre, the noisy neighbour was a crested Grebe, but only occasionally.
Although we didn't get to meet Derk, his communications were excellent.
Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and definitely recommend anyone to try something a little different from a standard hotel room.

Derk was there to welcome us onboard and offer some helpful advice. The boat is in a great neighbourhood - peaceful, decent transport links and not far from good bars and restaurants. Comfy bed, decent shower and a handy kitchen area. Only slight negative was that the interior was a little cluttered, but not a problem.
The absolute perfect place in a perfect area with a perfect host. The most Amsterdamy way to stay in Amsterdam is this houseboat in a very scenic and quiet neighborhood (with the best views of the main canals) and super walking distance to the museum district and Europe's oldest zoo and markets and some very nice restaurants - and the foam museum.
