Premiere experience avec airbnb et tres bonne experience la peniche etait tres sympa et bien equipee la presence des transports en commun a proximite tres pratique nous avions aussi une superette tout pres ce qui nous a permis de pouvoir faire les repas dans la peniche. En resume nous avons pu profiter d amsterdam dans d' excellentes conditions avec un logements atypique et en presence des cygnes
Very nice place overall in this season with the fireplace !
Not so far from the towncenter, with supermarket 2 min by walk.
Great journey, thanks Marnix
Great experience overall. Better than pictures represent. Was very happy staying there. Away from the center and in a great neighborhood. Marnix is a very nice guy and was there to greet us and show us everything about the boat. There was plenty of fire wood and the fire place truly added to the experience. Would love to stay there again.
We've had the best experience ever staying at Marnix's beautiful houseboat. He has been nothing but friendly to us and we've felt so much like home. We will highly recommend staying in this fantastic houseboat and might even come back one day.
Early in the morning in October, still dark outside, sitting in the living room, grapping a cup of coffee and watching the marvelous sunrise over the sea, some lights are popping up at the nearby apartments - this is why you should take this houseboat. The location is not in the middle of the city, but easy to reach within 15 min by bike. The boat is authentic, it is not perfect but you see the life and the warm feelings, the spirit. Of course, it has everything what you expect such as WiFi, TV, fridge etc. But the real, the important point is the authenticity. Thanks Marnix
Marnix was there to greet us as we got out of our cab. The boat was everything he promised. It was absolutely beautiful and spacious. The fire was most welcome after cool damp evenings out on the town. Tram 10 and 26 were right "at your service" and made getting around so easy. The views were breathtaking! The ducks, swans, loons and cats were all friendly and fun to be around. We couldn't have asked for more!
If you are looking for a peaceful authentic Dutch experience then look no further - the house boat is a delightful cozy home where you can cook to a breeze off the water or read by the fireplace and fall asleep to the gentle motion of the boat. Slept like logs, loved the ducks and of course the blissful romance of it all. Place works perfectly. I'll definitely use it again if I may. Thanks Marnix.
What a wonderful way to experience Amsterdam for the first time! This houseboat is nestled in a nice, quiet neighborhood just outside of the hustle and bustle (if you can call it hustle and bustle) of central Amsterdam. While the center of town and it's many attractions are only a bike ride away (or walk if you're so inclined), there are plenty of wonderful restaurants and bars close by that you don't even have to go into town if you don't want to.
The houseboat itself was incredibly cozy and perfect for four people. And again, since it's not in the heart of Amsterdam, it's a relaxing place to come home to after a long day of site seeing. With plenty of space to hang out inside and out (I spent a good bit of time on the deck/patio. It's a great place to have a coffee and reading the morning or a glass of wine with good company in the evening) this houseboat gives you an overwhelming sense of relaxation which is exactly what I was looking for.
With the transaction being quick and easy, it's definitely a property I'll consider coming back to in the future.
Great to hear you found the place so relaxing. Because that is exactly what I like it to be (and why I love to live here myself). Hope to see you back!
Herzlicher Empfang und wunderbares Hausboot in herrlicher ruhiger Lage
The houseboat was just wonderful. It perfectly reflected the description given and even surpassed it in several aspects. It is bigger in reality than the pictures suggest. It is very well appointed - be it in the bathrooms, the living room or in the well equipped kitchen. There were even fresh flowers on board!
The location is close to the center of Amsterdam - a bike or the tram around the corner got us there within a couple of minutes. A supermarket and some good Restaurants are just around the corner.
Marnix was an excellent and very friendly and reliable host, reservation and handover went along very easy.
