Going to Holland, I thought it fun and traditional to stay on a boat for the weekend. 'David Boat' was lovely in a quiet tree (

We had an amazing weekend on David's houseboat. He is very friendly and accommodating and the boat is just a 10 minute tram ride to Amsterdam Central. Awesome!

We stayed over New Year and the boat was perfect for us then and there: well located, clean, comfortable, very warm, and overall a great experience. David was there to meet and greet and was a very nice and pleasant man. Would definitely stay a second time. Thank you for the experience.

We (French-German couple) have really enjoyed our stay on David's houseboat. It is an old boat but nicely renovated with heating, hot water shower, a fairly comfortable bed and kind amenities like a water boiler, coffee/tea, etc. - we would definitely recommend to stay here. By bike, it takes you about 15 minutes to the city center and you will pass by beautiful neighbourhoods, this is indeed a nice corner of Amsterdam. David is a warm, helpful and patient host - we would come back any time!

The boat is located a short distance from the center, about 20 minutes walking or €10 in a taxi. There are nearby trams that will take you to the museum area and Amsterdam CS as well. Personally, I really appreciated the quiet and everything you need can be found within a few blocks. David is kind and very relaxed, and the boat has wifi strong enough to stream videos without a problem. Room was simple, but you have your own toilet and shower and a huge bed. Couldn't have asked for more!

The house boat is very nice and it's an original way to sleep in amsterdam. the tramway is close to the boat and it's easy to go in center. david is very friendly. i recommend this boat!

David's boat was interesting experience. The room is quite small and basic, but cozy. David tried to make it livable by providing kettle&coffee, radio and other small, but nice things. As this is an old boat, it doesn't feel very clean and tide and it smelled a bit funny inside. In the canal around the boat there was a lot of garbage. But David was helpful, it was warm and in general we were satisfied.

we had a big storm in Holland wich caused the canal to be flooded with all kinds of rubbisch. Im very happy that the canal got cleaned properly last week.

David was incredibly friendly, and came in person to help us find the boat. The room was clean and coffee was provided. Everything seemed to be in good shape on his ship, and it was absolutely worth the money we paid.

Davids boat was brilliant. the boat might not be everyone's cup of tea as its very rustic but we thought it was really cool and loved it. the toilet is in the bedroom with a curtain covering it which is a little strange but apart from that we couldnt fault it. David's a lovely guy and really helpful with anything you want to know and anytime we needed to get hold of him he was there. locations about a 35 minute walk from central station but there are tram stops close by. would definitely go back
