Really convenient location and a real adventure to stay in this beautiful boat. You need to be agile to descend the steps and climb into the shower. Only problem was that the bed linen smelled of cigarette smoke.

Just returned back from a lovely 3 night break on Rose Houseboat. I booked this well in advance because the reviews have all been really good and thought it may get booked up early. Had lots of communication from Nina on the run up to the trip and and nothing has been a problem. Met our host Frits on check... More

Spent 3 nights on the 'Music' boat with my wife and daughter. Clean, comfortable and well managed. Centrally located only 5 - 10 mins walk from the train station so very convenient. Owners were friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Like Amsterdam in general, this place offers something that's a bit different. Would definitely stay on one of their boats... More

My spouse and I spent 4 nights on board the Rose boat. We loved it! It is near the city centre and since we were there in December we were able to see two the light art exhibits from the upper floor. The house was clean, well decorated, and comfortable. Hosts were helpful and provided a lot of great information.... More

I have stayed on the Music Boat twice and the Love Boat three times. Owners were very welcoming indeed, and couldn't have been more helpful. They live next door but you never see them unless you need them. I'm almost scared to review it as next time I want to stay it will be booked up! Great central location but... More

Myself and 8 friends stayed on the boats New Love and Sunset. Eric the owner of the boats met us and was a really cool, friendly and reasonable guy. He took the time to advise us on things to see and do whilst in Amsterdam. The boats themselves were incredible, perfect location but very quiet and peaceful.

I booked this for myself and six friends for four days in October. The location was incredible. We literally turned left out of the train station and three minutes later, we were there. The boat is moored in a quiet residential area yet is only five minutes walk from the central part of Amsterdam. The owners were very helpful and... More
