“Ultimate houseboat experience” Me and my partner stayed for 4 days at Houseboat Tante Piet and it was fantastic. Siet, the owner, received us with coffee and 'stroopwafels', and made us feel at home right away. She showed us our cosy bedroom (which was on the far left of the boat), the living area with a chimney, the kitchen and bathroom. In the morning she prepared a beautiful breakfast and gave us all useful information of the city, city maps, where to eat, etc. Overall it has been a amazing vacations and we recommend you to book a mini vacation at Houseboat Tante Piet in Amsterdam.
“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.

“An original, authentic Amsterdam stay” Clean, comfortable and nicely decorated houseboat with a quiet garden, ideal for people wanting an alternative experience of Amsterdam, away from the tourist traps. The area is not as pretty as 'old' Amsterdam, but a very interesting neighbourhood to explore, with great waterside cafes. Good transport links - a few minutes walk to the quick free ferry to Central Station and all the traditional sights in town. The owner, who was friendly and helpful, lives 'next door' in a separate part of the boat, but we felt private and undisturbed during our stay.
