LOVED! This houseboat...Joanne was really nice and helpful. Boat felt like you were at home not on vacation. Great way to spend my Christmas! It was a nice walk from the rail station and let you see a part of the city you don't normally get to see. Definitely book this houseboat!


We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at houseboat alternatief. The boat was beautiful and was stoner friendly which was a bonus. 10-15minute walk to the town and 5 minutes from central station. Beside the house boat there was a brilliant bar/café on the canal front which I recommend, that I think is called hannekes boom. It was a very hippy sort of spot. The owner was lovely and very understanding that some people who were meant to be joining us couldn't join us. Many thanks.

Loved our stay, the boat is very central from the train station just a walk along a boardwalk and over a pedestrian bridge. Joanna was such a wonderful hostess and made my 30th birthday weekend in Amsterdam really special. I will be back and hopefully soon!
