If you want to experience Amsterdam the local way then we invite you to stay at one of our house boats.
The houseboat was awesome - everything we expected. Jacob and Fake were wonderful hosts and the houseboat had everything we needed. We had a small problem with the heat and Fake came over so quickly. It was really a simple button to reset that was all but I hadn't figured it out. The location is fantastic too - really I think best neighborhood in Amsterdam. What a treat to experience Amsterdam this way. I highly recommend it.
This place is tremendous. Great location. Cool vibe. Everything you want to make your stay in Amsterdam excellent. Definitely a place I look forward to returning to.
The romantic houseboat on the Prinsengracht canal in Amsterdam is a perfect place to stay in the bohemian Jordaan district. The houseboat offers so much more space and a much better feel than a hotel room. We loved our little boat and really enjoyed waving to the passing tourist boats as well. The houseboat is shabby chic and we loved it. We have already written about it on our travel site (website hidden) and have another post to come specifically on life on a houseboat. These have been well received by (website hidden) amongst others. The houseboat has a lounge room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and very importantly, a front and side deck and even better still, delightful ducks that visited throughout our stay. We cannot recommend it highly enough.
This was such a pretty and cosy place to stay!
The location was suberb - so close to Rembrant square and all city Amsterdam sights in walking distance!
The canal was quiet and so beautiful, especially at night sitting on the still water with views of the bridges lit up!
The beds were comfortable too!
Jacob organised for us to check in early and the owner came to visit us to see how everything was and allowed us to checkout late in line with our departure time! Wonderful people to deal with!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.

from the beginning of our stay, we felt like home.
jakob's service was perfect and we will definitely
book the same place, when we will return to amsterdam.
living on a boat is a quite extraordinary experience
and we totally enjoyed it. yours eva + ralf
Really enjoyed staying at the houseboat. It was great to stay somewhere a little different from the norm, and the houseboat has loads of character. It was spacious and clean and the location is great - quiet but still walking distance from everything. Jacob was fantastic, let us check in early, and was on hand in case of any questions. Just watch out for the low beams!
Leider war die Reise etwas mühsam! Als wir am Flughafen in Amsterdam ankamen, wurde uns telefonisch mitgeteilt, dass unser Apartment überbucht war. Wir mussten also zuerst in das Büro von Jacob. Man war zwar bemüht eine Alternative zu finden, aber es verging viel Zeit und für mich die Krank und Schwanger war, etwas beschwerlich. Die Alternative war leider kein Vergleich zum Apartment welches wir gebucht hatten. Für die 2 Paare gab es 4 Einzelbetten nebeneinander. Auch war die Ausstattung weit vom gebuchten entfernt. Jacob hat uns immer wieder Hilfe und Unterstützung angeboten und war sehr freundlich und er gab uns auch einen Preisnachlass. Trotzdem war es sehr ärgelich. Die stundenlange Suche und Vergleiche waren komplett unnütz. Am Sonntag sind wir dann abgereist und Jacob sollte wie verabredet um 10.00 Uhr die Wohnung abnehmen. Er ist jedoch gar nicht erst gekommen und hatte auch sein Handy abgestellt. Wir mussten den Schlüssel im Restaurant unterhalb der Wohnung abgeben und haben Jacob via SMS informiert. Wir haben seither nichts mehr gehört, sehr komisch. Alles in Allem war es sehr anstrengend was alles nicht geklappt hat für 4 Tage Urlaub.
Many thanks to Jacob for a wonderful stay. We really enjoyed the houseboat, and although we had a few minor problems Jacob was very quick to fix them immediately. He even gave us a bottle of wine!
The location was very peaceful - kind of on the edge of town. But a super short bike ride to everywhere.
In the last 2 years I've been in Amsterdam for 5 times.
This time I came with my family (5 people).
Jacob host us in 2 different apartments, during our two weeks stay in Holland, both was great with a wonderful view to the canal.
Jacob is my best host; he was 100% available for us and took care of all.
Thank you for everything.
Jacob and Patti are both free spirited souls that are extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home from the start. The attic loft was amazing, we woke up to the sounds of bells and the location was terrific, right in the heart of Chinatown and very close to the red light district, we never felt unsafe in the neighbourhood. We had an unforgettable time with Jacob and Patti.
Patti & Jacob were awesome! We absolutely loved staying at their beautiful place in Amsterdam. The location was central, very close to a market, the train station, and of course the red light district =) The beds were comfortable, and had a nice view, and very spacious. Jacob and Patti were very accommodating, answered all our questions and gave us great tips on where to go, and they were very friendly and chill to hang out with. We hope to see them again soon... And thanks Jacob and Patti if you are reading this!
