We had 5 days at the Houseboat in April 2016 and really loved the setting - the Houseboat is at the end of a canal and is very peaceful with a view down the canal and just swans, coots and mallards for company!
The Houseboat is very well equipped and comfortable and situated on the west of the centre of Amsterdam, but only 12 minutes away by bus. There is a lovely park across the main road - the Westergasfabriek Culture Park with plenty of paths to explore, cafes and streams.
There are handy bus and tram routes into the centre and links to the Metro, boats and the station. The free maps from the Information Centre show where the main museums, shopping areas and good pubs are situated within walking or transport distances.
The hosts - Liesbeth and Fred are lovely - very helpful for where the local shops and a good cafe are to be found and have plenty of guides and money off coupons on the houseboat.with guides and maps, books about local museums, crafts and places of interest.More
