“Beautiful, peaceful and very civilised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

The Waterinn is a beautiful, peaceful place floating on a canal, water at your feet and wild water birds joining you as you breakfast under the hopeful eye of Jappi the Heron in the morning sun. On the other side of the house is a pretty wood and I'm sure I heard an owl.

Sylvie and Rob very kindly went to great lengths to ensure I enjoyed my stay, checking my breakfast preferences and kitting me out with a bicycle to explore the coast and get to the ferry across to the city more quickly. The house is very thoughtfully decorated and well equipped, my personal preference being the sweet upstairs bedroom under the eves with a view across the canal. There is also a traditional wood stove which Rob provided me with wood for but this was just for fun as the house is very warm. You can swim in the canal too but it wasn't warm enough for me when I went!

This is a perfect place if you want a quiet good quality base from which to explore Amsterdam or just a lovely holiday by the canal.

Imagine yourself a house on the water where a silver heron and a few ducks welcome you and the leaves on the trees wisper softly in the background.
This is just a dream when you want to visit a lively city such as Amsterdam!

The Waterinn is located on the North shore of Amsterdam in the quiet little yachtharbour of beautifull Nieuwerdam, and you can easily get to the heart of Amsterdam by bike (which Rob & Sylvie - the most friendly hosts we've ever met - lent us) & free ferry (24/24) in approx 15'.

For sure, we come back to this little place in paradise!

This is a bed and breakfast on a houseboat on the North Shore of Amsterdam that was the perfect antidote to the crowds of Amsterdam centre. Take a free ferry across the water from just outside the Central station and the owner (perfect host) gave us a lift to this idyllic setting. After that you just borrow the household bikes and commute into the city by bike and ferry just like a local. I came with a friend and we each had our own bedroom and had a dining space to ourselves, equipped with kettle and dutch coffeemaker, microwave and a fridge, so we never needed to spend on eating out. We picked up ready to eat groceries from the local supermarket on the way back from town, opened a bottle of wine and just gazed out over the canal, listening to the birds and talking about how wonderful it must be to live in Amsterdam. Our host brought in a generous breakfast every morning, and if you want to experience Amsterdam in a more personal way, the Waterinn is the perfect place to stay.
