“Fab family house boat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

We booked last minute in the school summer holidays and had one of the most fantastic short holidays with 3 children in tow! The boat was excellent in every way - central to everything, comfortable, and a novelty for kids.
We would definitely recommend it to other families.

The Houseboats owned by these guys are simply great. The location by far is the best, you can walk to anywhere you can! The houseboats are really well maintained, they look good, smell good and feel good. They are definitely worth the money. The owners are sweethearts - Nina and Eric, they make you feel so comfortable. They have all you need - Owen, crockery, refrigerator, music system, and so much more to go. In the center and away from the crowd, with your open deck and what not. By far the best place to live in the city. Ideal for couples, friends and everyone who exists! Wish to stay with them sometime soon, again!

P.S.: The only thing that went wrong with the stay - nothing!

Was in Amsterdam in september, and stayed on the love and the rose boat.
The boats was romantic and exsclusive. The Hospitality was excellent! We loved our time in Amsterdam, and we are coming back.

We have tryed hotels, but the boats was perfect for a romantic getaway.
We are NEVER going to stay in a hotel in Amsterdam again!
Booking was also very easy, and Nina made us feel very safe about everything.
We also got to take a great boat trip in the canals with living lights, wine and a fantastic host.
Unforgetable!
We love Amsterdam and the unforgettable boats. Allready planning our next trip!
Thank You for making our time in Amsterdam PERFECT!

Hugs and Kisses from Norway!!!

We stayed at the Rose houseboat from the 3/9/11 for 3 nights on our honeymoon we can’t praise the boat enough it was amazing there was even a lovely cake and a bottle of wine waiting for us as it was our honeymoon. The houseboat is set in a great area 5 min walk from central station right across the water from the Sea Palace Chinese Restaurant, the boat has a nice floating sun deck outside, inside there is a kitchen living area with a sofa bed and great wee kitchen with everything you need, down the spiral staircase there is the bedroom with big bed with a flat screen TV with some English channels a DVD player with some DVD’S, the toilet/shower room is just off the bedroom this was a good size the shower was amazing. We had a fantastic stay and will definitely will be going back every time we stay in Amsterdam

Romantic, luxurious, comfortable, outstanding quality, amazing service.
I am not a fan of boats but as we were in Amsterdam it seemed the best way to get in touch with the spirit of the city -it is like a unique trademark. And we absolutely loved it. The boat was spacious and luxurious; it had everything you may need to live comfortably and enjoy it – from the great living area with fully equipped kitchen to the bathroom with a bath tub where you could sip a glass of wine, to the cosy bedroom. Sleeping on the boat was one of my favourite experiences –with my husband next to me in a very comfortable bed, being rocked gently by the water…hmm…a dream! The ambiance was stylish and romantic and I loved the unique experience being on a boat, climbing up and down the leader, enjoying the sun on deck-just lovely!
The location is fantastic – in the heart of the city, a minute away from with all the cafes and attractions, and a couple of minutes walk from the railway station, which provides very easy access from the airport.
But what I liked the most was the service and the friendly company of the owners. Katerina and Eric are one of the nicest people we’ve met. They made sure our stay was perfect and unforgettable. They took us around, gave us information of the city and it’s hidden and not so hidden attractions, suggested where to go and what to see and made us feel very special and welcome. We were lucky enough to have nice sunny weather so there wasn’t anything we didn’t like. For an experienced traveller and former flight attendant who’s been around the world many times this was one of the most pleasant trips thanks to the Love Boat and its owners and I would highly recommend it.

Excellent hosts, excellent accomodation, excellent experience all round. Everything about the New Love Houseboat was perfect. Booking (at the very last minute) was easy and Nina got back to us the very same night that I sent my enquiry. Checking in was a delightful experience and a complimentary bottle of wine was provided. We had a wonderful few hours just exploring the boat with its many features. The kitchen was spotless and the beds were very comfortable indeed. Sitting on deck, watching the swans and ducks, with a glass of wine..... what could be more romantic and lovely?
I have nothing negative to say. I usually stay at five star hotels in Amsterdam but this is by far the best expereince I have had. There is nowhere I would rather stay,

The spot: Very orginal, super central.. You'll get such a nice chilled out atmosphere both on the boat deck and inside. It's clean well furnished ... you get a bottle of wine!
The hosts: Really helpful, they also trust their guests and of course the boat tour for the sun set with guitar and apertizers on Amsterdam canals is magic ^^
I can recommend it and will come bacl for sure!
Enjoy
