Sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the houseboat and your stay. I have checked the heater and it is now working normally, just a little air in the pipes. And I acted straight away when i heard the toilet was blocked and it was fixed as soon as the workman could get there. The microwave just needed a little use to blow out what ever the last guest had burnt inside. as it was clean i had no idea. I am aware of the marks on the wall and have tried to clean it but as i won't come off i plan to repaint, when i have time, Im still shocked at what some guests get up to. And although the boat is not new and yes there are areas that need attention I'm surprised it was as bad as you mention. i hear a lot, accommodation in Amsterdam is more expensive than other cities but you where also 5 guests. In the centre of the city (prime location). On a houseboat. With stunning canal views. It would costs the same in a hotel but without the view. i cant not mention to the reason you weren't compensated, this was up to the manager. I will try harder next time.

We are so happy to hear your family enjoyed your stay and experience in our apartment. Indeed, the building dates to 1869, and we selected it as our home years ago due to the rarity of finding so many of the historical French interior architectural charms, combined with such a large living room, large bedrooms and space between them all. The kitchen and bathroom were our major investment, to bring up to a level of 21st Century comfort and modest luxury.
Montmartre, as it has always been, is a bustling and bohemian mix of peoples, and the small streets around the Montmartre hill can add touches of ?village life? to the neighborhoods (even though it is still full of ?big city people?).
We agree that walking is the best walk to experience Paris. To the Moulin Rouge is 20min, to the Opera is 30min and to the Louvre museum (and river Seine) is 40min.
We thank you and your family for taking such good care of our home during your trip and for sharing your experience with other travelers!
