“A beautiful place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

This Houseboat is situated on a lovely, quiet canal in the North of Amsterdam. We had the loft studio which came with a private roof terrace - wonderful for sitting in the evening watching canal life with a glass of wine. Yvonne and Henk, our hosts were very friendly and helpful but discreetly gave us as much privacy as we needed. We took the 5 Euro pp breakfast and it was great. A good selection and enough fresh bread and meat, cheese etc to take some for lunch, which we were encouraged to do. A 10 minute walk through a lovely park took us right to the bus for Centraal station. Perfect place to stay to avoid the noise and crush of Amsterdam in Summer but very accessible for the city. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Try to book the loft apartment as it has the roof terrace facing the canal

We spent four days in Amsterdam at the end of April 2014. Our host picked us up at the ferry. We had a warm welcome, Henk and Yvonne gave us a lot of information for our stay in Holland. The rooms are very nice, the breakfast is large and perfect. The place is quiet, along the canal, near a park and very closed to the city center. We rent bicycles and it was the perfect way to visit Amsterdam and to go back to the bed and breakfast ! Thanks again to Yvonne and Henk for our stay in their house boat.

We stayed with Henk and Yvonne in June 2013 and had the most wonderful time possible! The hosts were warm and accommodating, Yvonne even met us in her private vehicle as we came off the ferry from Amsterdam train station and brought us to their house boat which was a 5 minute drive from the boat.

Our room was spacious, clean and had a wonderful view of the canal. The rates were extremely reasonable and access to Amsterdam central was via a 10 minute bus trip that we caught after a short walk was made through a lovely park. I would have no hesitation in recommending this facility and would also not think of staying anywhere else on my next visit to Amsterdam.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent value
