If you want to experience Amsterdam the local way then we invite you to stay at one of our house boats.
Can you ask for a better Amsterdam experience than living ON one of the canals? Living on a houseboat in central Amsterdam is definitely a Dutch experience. This houseboat is ideal for a group with plenty of space and a nice sauna to boot! Jacob had everything ready for us and was quick to reply over text or phone to any questions we had. Location is ideal..everything central is within 30 mins walk. We were just two this time...but would gladly come back with 4-5 to make even better use of the houseboat.
Объективно-лодка грязновата,старовата,кровати узкие(хотя мы были об этом предупреждены-1.60 ширина),хозяин даже не удосужился выкинуть мусор и стояла посудомойка,полная грязной посуды,постельное белье старое...из плюсов-общий антураж-типа лодка)ну и в симпатичном месте стоит.не стоит своих денег.
Everything was just great. We had a pleasant stay in Amsterdam.
Jacob was a friendly and helpful host and the boat was in a great location , very scenic and central without being too touristy. The boat is charming and has great features like the sauna. We very much enjoyed our stay.
This houseboat is in a fantastic location, close to the city centre and within walking distance of all the sights. It's near the Jordaan and famous 9 streets, there are lots of shops, supermarkets, cafés, bars and restaurants nearby. It's a beautiful and fairly quiet area and a lovely canal.
The houseboat is gorgeous, it's very eye catching and you will be the envy of everyone passing by while you lounge on the deck!
It's well furnished and we were very comfortable during our stay. It's light and bright and quite spacious, there are lots of windows and portholes, and the boat has everything that you could need. The sauna is a fantastic added bonus and we loved the wood burning stove in the kitchen. The deck is lovely and there are lots of ducks for neighbours.
Jacob and his parents were very friendly and helpful. We had a couple of problems and they were quick to communicate with us and to fix the problem.
Staying on a houseboat is a great experience, we loved it and felt like real Amsterdammers. Can't wait to come back!!
Jacob Rabbie is een uitstekende behulpzame verhuurder. Alles verliep naar wens!
De foto's op de site komen perfect overeen met de werkelijkheid. Een aanrader!
Helpful and very hospitable. All the best and thanks for mailing back some of our stuff.
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.
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!
