Great place to stay in the heart of Amsterdam, would come again any time. Joanne is a great host and made us feel welcome from the beginning. Just remember its a boat not a 5star hotel. It has everything thing you need and the couple of complimentary Heineken's and juice at arrival in the fridge, nice touch!


Absolutely amazing, the lady who owned it was so helpful and lovely! Perfect location and beautiful quirky houseboat!


Joanne!! We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you so much, we had a lekker time! Cheers from Munich, Severine & friends


The owner was very nice and even let us borrow bikes during our stay.


The owners of the houseboat were very friendly and welcoming. They left us with a helpful guide of things to do, and where to eat in Amsterdam. We were also left with a handy map. The houseboat is located ten minutes from centraal station and fifteen minutes from the city centre. It's in a very good location and the houseboat itself was very comfortable for three of us. In all, the trip was amazing and I would recommend to others.

- Joanne was very welcoming, friendly, helpful and easy to communicate with. - The houseboat was clean and in a convenient location. It was very close to the main train station. - The bedroom was surprisingly big and there was a nice lounge area which was fun for just sitting and chilling out. - Overall, it met all out met our needs.. It was a little bit challenging getting our luggage on and off the boat but we managed. - Thanks Joanne, we had a lot of fun!
