Hello, I have recently moved back to uk after 10 years in Amsterdam living on a houseboat. The houseboat I enjoyed renting out on airbnb and so continue now as a guest :) Great way to travel!

A really amazing place in the heart of Amsterdam! And it was the best place for New Years 2013/14.
The boat itself was so comfortable, with everything we needed. The living space is spacious and the boat has all the amenities you could need. The views from the houseboat are beautiful, and you can spend the day waving to people on the tourist-boats going past from the terrace! We were warm and comfortable throughout our whole stay.
We met Penny when we left, as she was out of the city by herself. But she organized everything very well, so somebody was waiting and welcome us and explained everything.
We´ll definitely recommend this place!
We had a terrific holiday. I’m sure penny’s houseboat is one of the coolest places to stay while visiting Amsterdam. A real Dutch experience in the city center but with the comfort of our home. Unfortunately it was pouring rain during our stay and very cold outside whilst at the houseboat we were warm and cozy.
Glad to hear David :) and thankyou!
Really confortable houseboat, beautiful and with all the necessary. Perfect location to visit the city important places/ museums walking! Quiet at night.
I've been to Amsterdam about 25 times in the last 15 years. This place was a great way for my wife and I to have a home base for a few days of work AND a place to relax for a mini holiday.
Great place in the absolute center of where you want to be! Penny made sure everything was to our satisfaction and the people she arranged for the key exchange not only met us (and helped with our bags in the rain), but also checked in mid week to make sure all was well.
If you are considering a house boat in Amsterdam and Penny's is available - I would recommend booking it. This is an ideal set up for a weekend or longer.
Hey Jon, great to have you stay and glad to hear such a great compliment for the key service guys - i give them a shout out too then (website hidden) should anyone need to hire them! Thanks again Jon.
Not only is Amsterdam a wonderful place but no stay is complete without living on the canals - and I can only suggest that no houseboat could be any better than Penny's! Ultra cool and with every thing you could need at hand. Great location right in the heart of it all, and the perfect deck on which to enjoy the sunshine to drink and dine the afternoon watching the world go by! (And check out her plethora of funky books, not enough time to enjoy them all!) Super helpful too, I'll be recommending to friends n family alike - thank you penny for sharing what is yours.

Ps sorry we forgot to leave the deserved treat for a bargain stay, I'm thinking an excuse for a return visit to compensate! Thanks again
We stayed at the Luxury houseboat for a couple of days, she was great for communication in the arrangements and it all went very smoothly. The place itself is stunning, Penny has great taste as can be seen from the photos. The "terrace" just makes the place 5* though. We had great weather and enjoyed the people watching, or was it them watching us, I still don't know. The location couldn't be better in Amsterdam, Rembrandplein a minute away and most things in Amsterdam no more than 15 minutes away. Overall a great place to experience a little houseboat life!
thankyou Derek glad you enjoyed it :)
Fabulous week-end in Penny's house boat !! The terrace is wonderful for a drink in sunny evenings. The shower with the view on amstel river is perfect !!
The location is the best you will find if you plan to explore the city walking. Easy by walk from central station crossing redlight district. There is a big grocery near Rembrandt plein
Penny is a really nice girl and communication before and after the reservation was excellent.
We will be back !! :)
you will be very welcome!
Lovely guests, really glad to have met these guys, and would recommend as guests anytime.
Penny and her guest were TERRIFIC. Great communication and very considerate. Would love to have them again.
Ah Penny is Awesome! The best Traveller I've ever met. Seen almost more things in her short few weeks here in Ny than I've seen in my whole 8 yrs! A pleasure of a guest, one who knows from being a host herself. Hope you had a great last night at Coney Island! Wished I could've made it. Gotta come see your Boat!
