Location is pretty central - 10mins to Centraal, 25 to Dam Square. Jeff is lovely. The houseboat is clean and cosy, and staying on it was quite a novelty. However (and perhaps we should have anticipated this!), while the area the houseboat is in is quiet, it is certainly not quiet sharing the houseboat with other guests. Inevitably, the living space is very small and the walls are very thin. You might as well be sharing one giant bed and it was all a bit awkward. Otherwise, great and recommended
The house was clean, with everything we needed (soap, toilet paper, toothpaste and even pasta). Coffee, tea and cocoa aplenty as well as everything needed to cook. Jeff was very kind and helpful, beyond the call of duty. Very patient and professional. (small) negatives: 1. It was a bit hard to find the first time we arrived to amsterdam. 2. It's about 10 mintues from the central train station. some might prefer a more central location. Next time in Amsterdam, this is my 1st choice. A++++++++++
