"Great experience"

We arrived a little later than we intended and had to collect the keys from the nearby Amsterdam House Hotel but staff were great and we dealt with the formalities very quickly. The owner of the boat was there to greet us and he very understanding, really friendly and helpful. We had stayed on this boat a few years ago but it has had a wonderful refurb since with all the amenities that you would require. The boat is spacious and comfortably accommodated 4 of us with two people using the pull out beds in the living room, which were very big and comfortable. The location is fantastic and although a little noisy at times (it was the Christmas period so lots of celebrating) it was perfect for us to explore all of Amsterdam.

The water heater is in the bedroom and can be a little noisy if the heating is on but this wouldn't necessarily be a problem in the summer months. All in all we really enjoyed our stay on the boat, couldn't fault it and will certainly be returning. Thank you to Simon and partner for their very friendly and helpful approach. Nothing was too much trouble.

"A cool little houseboat in a superb location with a friendly host"

I stayed on this houseboat with two friends for a long weekend. It was clean and comfortable, but definitely smaller than it appeared in the pictures. The location is amazing, though despite its busy surroundings, the boat is pretty quiet inside. The beds were comfortable, the kitchenette had all the bits and pieces one would need for light food preparation, and the shower, though a little ramshackle, gave us all plenty of hot water.

Simon was an excellent host - friendly, helpful and very laid back.

If you want a change of pace from the usual hotel experience, this is a safe and enjoyable option.
