I really loved this property. It's not particularly flashy or huge, but I wasn't expecting that. The boat is quite small, sleeps two, and is perfectly located next to a cafe at the marina, with a very short walk to Centraal station. Being able to travel around the city with an easy access back via tram was exactly what I wanted, and being able to sleep in peace and quiet without any undue messing around is exactly what I got. There are few other places at this kind of price that can sleep two and are so accessible, though I'd not recommend the property for smaller children or people with mobility issues.
We had a wonderful time staying on Richard's boat 26th-30th June.
The title is perfectly descriptive of what you can expect.
The location is ideal, and the boat was just right size for us as a couple.
For us the boat was primarily for sleeping and storing our belongings - and served both purposes very well.
In fact we probably spent more time chilling on the boat due to its quiet location and peaceful setting.
Richard is a fantastic host, helpful but unobtrusive, and we were really pleased with our find and experience it allowed us to have.
Supermarkets, cafe's and coffeeshops all within 5-10 minutes.
A lovely rustic option in amongst all the bland generic hotels and hostels.
Would stay again. Thank you.
Me & a friend stayed on Richard's boat for 2 nights in Febuary & we loved it. Richard greeted us and gave us some knowledge on the boat, how to heat it up, lock the door ect - he's a lovely laid back guy and made us feel very welcome. The boat is in a fantastic location and for the price I couldn't think of anywhere I'd rather stay! The fact you have to shower in the harbour masters shower block, rather then the actual boat might put some people off - not us. We will be back, cheers Richard
