"A perfect stay in the heart of Amsterdam"
We (4 people all around 30 years old) stayed in this lovely houseboat for 2 nights to celebrate a special new year's eve.
And we enjoyed our stay from the first second. The Owner of the boat is gentle and very obliging; all my E-Mails with questions have been answered quickly, tips for restaurants, parking, we got more than just a place to sleep.
This houseboat is the perfect starting point for exploring Amsterdam, everything is nearby, Supermarkets, Shops, Restaurants, Cafes, the Dam, the Shopping area, Chinatown, Red light district, the Begijnenhof, Rijksmuseum and even the Oosterdonk Parking Garage (a perfect tip from the houseboat owner to park our car safe and cheap) is just 10 minutes' walk form the boat. But other than expected it´s calm in this canal, 5 minutes from the Niewmarket but even in the New Year's night you could hear some firework but no rumor of people or party.
Even in the boat we have been positively surprised, the decoration is lovely, the kitchen is perfectly equipped (dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine), the bathroom big (and also with little positive surprises like a hairdryer). The visitors have been great fun each morning (swans and ducks come to the windows every day and you can feed them foot for them is prepared by the owner). Due to the security systems you feel save and with the special climate automatic it's cozy and warm in there. The furniture are new and very practical (can be changed in bigger table and sofa into double bed), more than enough blankets and even the small things like the provided games, books, decoration changed the rental boat into a “coming home- feeling” after a long walk in Amsterdam.
We will definitively come back and told all our friends of this option to explore the real Amsterdam with a more than fair rate.
