Had such an amazing stay. Was very welcoming and felt at home. Lovely owners and the experience of being on the houseboat made it really special.


We are so grateful for your hospitality! The boat was very comfortable, albeit a bit loud because of the thin walls. Access was easy and the location was superb. Unfortunately, one of us was bitten quite severely by mosquitos on the last night. Other than this, great place. Thanks!


Amazing experience. Boat totally cosy, clean and beautiful.


This and Dawn made us feel so welcome; this was by far the best place we stayed on our month long trip to Europe (mix of hotels, hostels, and airbnb); so well appointed (power adapters, hair dryers, bathroom products, etc;) so clean; bathroom ginormous despite being on a house boat. Staying on a houseboat in a city renowned for the canal side life was a wonderful treat and we loved it! Decor was quirky and fun.


Fantastic location, friendly, personable and helpful staff. No better way to experience Amsterdam than from a nicely converted former cargo ship anchored in a prime location close to Centraal Station. Lovely views of the harbor and life passing by. We stayed as a family of four, two adults & two teenagers with plenty of space- kids loved the lower hull with two "cabin" beds, and the main part of the room has a larger bed and bright, airy views & a connected "wheelhouse". Perfect fun. Thx Thijs

Lovely boat - interior is very spacious and clean. It is conveniently located, just a short walk to the Red Light District and the centre of Amsterdam. Met some lovely people who were also staying on the boat. Great atmosphere, and facilities were fantastic too - lots of 'shareware' foods and toiletries which was great. Dawn was lovely and really helpful. There is also a computer and Netflix on the TV, which is a bonus!


Anna houseboat is a very nice place to stay in Amsterdam. Thijs and Dawn are a very friendly and kind couple. In the boat you have everything you need: great kitchen facilities, a clean room, clean restroom and a place to eat. There was even NETFLIX in the room! You may rent bikes or buy some things in the boat as well. The place is fully recommended. If we come back to Amsterdam we would love to stay there again.


Amazing time! Location could not have been better. Still was able to sleep quietly and easily but being 5 minutes walk from the city center. Boat was awesome, clean, fun, internet w/ netflix was a huge treat, bicycle rental cheaper than any other place, great recs, I will stay here on every trip to Amsterdam from now. Such a wonderful experience.


The owner is very friendly and helpful, even if you don´t see him around much. The boat only have two rooms for rent, which makes the place quiet and clean. The rooms, kitchen and toilets are spacious and nicely decorated. It's located in the city center, but still just outside all the mess. About five minutes walk to the old center and the central station. It gives you a nice houseboat experience.


A very nice Destination...we come back... Thank you Thijs and Dawn for all. Andraes and Conny
