Staying in a houseboat was a great experience. It was located in a very beautiful area, the Jordaan is the Greenwich Village of Amsterdam. 10mins walk from the station and 15mins walk to the central touristy parts to the east. Café's (breakfast or lunch) are all around and Markets on certain days.
The room was very spacious and nicely segregated into the bedroom and the living room area. It had all the usual conveniences, but with a full kitchenette - fridge and a coffee-maker. The WiFi & TV was a great plus. It even had a ceiling fan to keep us cool at night. Good security with lockable windows and a safe.
The owners were very helpful and accommodating.
Waking up and then having a coffee on the little balcony (for two) over the canal, with occasional ducks swimming by, is a very pleasant way to start the day!
