Ahoy! from the Somoya Crew. 3 avid travellers, boat enthusiasts & designers. The Somoya is our dream boat, which we designed from scratch and had built in 2005 - the first of it's kind in Amsterdam. It's unique! We both have our own businesses, I am an architect, Roland is a houseboat designer, 3D expert & lecturer, Riva is our high school beauty and our cat Coco is lazy, sweet & curious. With regards to our guests we're flexible, easygoing and love getting to chat when we get the time. Our B&B upstairs - Somoya's Saloon - has been up and running for 2 years now, and we love, love, love the AirBnB guests above all. The best thing about having guests from all over the world is that everyone arrives happy & relaxed and leaves even more so. Bring on the positive energy! We thought people came to see Amsterdam for the usual things (& recommend our free bikes as the absolute best way to cruise around town); but most of our guests end up spending much more time chilling out on the Somoya than they probably planned to. It might be the hammock, or the free beers in the fridge, or the almost 360 harbour view, or the books & mags, or the fresh bathrobes, or the huge sun deck with log fire or just the whole houseboat experience with a luxurious twist - who knows? Who cares? We see it as a huge compliment. Read the reviews or even better, come find out for yourself. Looking forward to welcoming you on board the Somoya soon!
