We thought we would enjoy staying in a houseboat, but did not realize the main advantage -- that, even when you are at 'home', you are in the neighborhood, in a way that is just not possible from a hotel room. (Well.... maybe if you had a room with a balcony overhanging a canal, but I haven't heard of one... More

We jumped at the chance to stay on a houseboat in Amsterdam and were not disappointed. Patricia provided a good level of detail in getting to the property, and we were met by Paul upon arrival.

Immaculate accommodation and a gorgeous setting in the Jordaan area on the canal. The hosts were more than helpful with email communication before our trip. It felt like we had our own special little apartment with beautiful furnishings and a very clean and well equipped kitchen. Superb and we will be returning. Outstanding!

Finally I can review this wonderful accomodation in Amsterdam: last August we spent here lovely days. The houseboat is brand new and tastefully furnished; there is a fully equipped kitchenette (the supermarket is around the corner); the bathroom has a big shower... you can also enjoy a small outside platform from which to observe ducks, swans and boats passing by.......
