One night houseboat hotel with kids

We are visiting The Netherlands at the end of July beginning of August and we will be spending most of our time outside of Amsterfoort on a home exchange. But I thought it would be fun to spend one night on a houseboat in Amsterdam with our two kids, ages 7 and 11. I'm having a hard time finding somewhere that allows one night stays. Any ideas? Thanks!

Try Fredrick's

But honestly, I doubt you will be successful finding a one night place.

Pala, I clicked on that link. The first houseboat, and the only one, I looked at did offer one night bookings.

At a reasonable 10 percent surcharge.

I was quite surprised to see this.

Now they offer it in their ad. No idea if the same offer would be made when you book.

But worth a try I think

One night rental during the high season? I can only see that happening if your booking fits between two others. If it were me I would look for other accommodation.

Thanks all. Maybe we'll wait until we are there since we have flexibility and see if they have a night open.

Just make sure you have a backup plan. Friends have tried the same and ended up staying in Leiden for a few days.

Agree with Balou - or be prepared to pay for at least two nights.
