We want to thank the host Annette from the bottom of our heart for the wonderful stay and her service. The house boat is amazing it was always my dream to stay overnight on such a boat. The equipment is clean, taken care off and the breakfast facilities perfect. It is a nice experience to wake up with ducks swimming... More

What more can be said that has not already been said. Annette is one of the most warmest souls i have ever meet. She made the wife and i very comfortable and just made us feel like we were old friends. The boat is great,and has every thing you need. Loved how quiet the neighborhood was and just how fun...

Amazing location in a super quiet neighborhood. The owner is cool. There are large windows witch allow childrens to play with the ducks that are ont the canal. We found a parking space (without pay and without fine). Bike hire and bus station are 5 min.

My husband and I stayed here for three days in November before we boarded for a cruise on the Danube River. I had wanted to experience living on a houseboat. The location is in the Jordan area and was walking distance to much that we wanted to see. It was a very unique experience to watch the swans swim past... More

Stayed here for several nights and thoroughly enjoyed myself! The houseboat is perfectly appointed with everything you might need including lots of sprinkles for your toast. Honestly, I never new this was a thing! Annette was great and very accommodating and the boat is just go comfortable and relaxing. What a great way to experience Amsterdam!

Having just spent the weekend aboard Annette's houseboat, I cannot recommend it enough! Annette is a lovely host who has thought of everything. The Fridge even comes stocked for Breakfast. :) The houseboat is located in a lovely, quite part of Jordan, but is close enough to central Amsterdam. There are great restaurants and bars just around the corner. I... More

We stayed 4 nights on Annette's houseboat in October. The location is great, central (A 15 MN walk from the station) but also very quiet. Shops, restaurants and bars of the Joordan area are reached in less than 5 mn. The tram (3) is just a few minutes away. The studio is clean, nice and well equipped, It was great... More

Our family of four (incl two children 11 and 14) stayed on Annette's delightful houseboat for three nights in early August and we loved it. Annette is a warm and gracious host, and the studio, which is part of a larger houseboat, is very clean, comfortable and cosy. It's ideal for a couple, and fine for a family with two... More

Annette offers a truly Dutch experience. She is a gracious hostess who provides all the creature comforts that make you feel at home. Ark 16 is located in a lovely neighborhood with fantastic restaurants, playgrounds for children, and sights within walking distance. We highly recommend it! It will be unforgettable!

What can I say about this place.... Friendly host, quiet location, lovely neighbours, tranquil and authentic Amsterdam experience. For something a bit different you really can't go wrong here. Jordaan is such a cool place with loads of places to drink, eat and watch the world go by.
