A truly Dutch experience... staying on a canal boat right in the centre of the city was a lot of fun. Daan is a super friendly and accommodating host. One does not even need to go out to have fun, but if one does, then it's all within walking distance. The little boat has got everything for a short stay and I would recommend it for a couple. And a very cute and tasty breakfast is brought in the morning as a special treat. Unforgettable.
The houseboat is in the absolute best address in Amsterdam. We sat on the terrace and enjoyed a drink while waving to the tourists going by in canal cruise boats.
The kitchen is very well equipped, & we thought it a great help to have some extra condiments in the fridge and cupboard.
We thought there was a washing machine there, but it turned out to be a dishwasher in the small bedroom, along with a dryer!
Bathroom has been partially renovated, only the small shower bay still needs work.
Daan was super friendly when he stopped by after work, and Faye was great meeting us with the key etc.
Will definitely recommend this houseboat for a real Amsterdam experience.
Loved the boathouse! Ideal location and on the river enjoyed being apart of life in Amsterdam. Daan was very helpful and would go again
Our stay in Amsterdam was pleasant and Daan was very good with the breakfast. We booked for three people and it has to be said that the third bed was only suitable for short people, none of us is short. Nevertheless a very special experience on the Amstel, in the heart of a beautiful city.
Fabulous time on Daan houseboat. There were six of us and plenty of room. The location could not be better. Their is so much to do in Amsterdam and we would not hesitate to do that same thing over again. Very roomy and he answered all of the questions we had for him, Thank you Daan
We had a great time in Amsterdam and enjoyed living on Daan´s houseboat a lot! For us it was a different way of living on the water and a great feeling sitting on the roof-deck. Unfortunately we had to wait for the sun a log time... Communication, check-in and -out were very uncomplicated and we had a warm welcome. Everything was fine on the boat; thank you!
We had a great stay. Enjoyed the view of the passing boats. Convenient to everything. By far our favorite Airbnb stay so far!
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour sur la péniche. Celle-ci est fonctionnelle, bien équipée et bien située. Le seul bémol la concernant est qu'étant située en plein centre ville l'environnement est assez bruyant : l'on entend le tramway tard le soir et tôt le matin ce qui peut être gênant quand on a un sommeil léger; en ce qui nous concerne cela ne nous a pas trop dérangé.
The reservation was canceled 16 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
The boat was in a great spot and Daan's assistant was very attentive. We didn't have a chance to stay for breakfast so I can't speak to that, but Faye was very accommodating.
Daan, was an excellent guest. He treated the house with respect and communicated in a very clear and polite manner.
