“Spring time in Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We have just returned from the most wonderful trip to Amsterdam. This is the first time we have stayed in this area and won't hesitate to do so again. Relatively quiet but close to the City centre. The Houseboat was perfect, beautifully restored and had everything we needed. Siet was a great host and did everything she could to make us welcome and help us feel at home.

“Adam at it's best !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

My 3 ladies and me, we had a very relaxed & comfortable stay in ADAM, it was a wonderful way to explore the city. The sweet little houseboat is an amazing & cosy place to stay if you want to come down a bit from your daily routine. The B'n'B is located just 2 tram stations from the main station & from the central of ADAM. Siet is very cool & polite person & she spared no effort to provide us a pleasant stay. Thanxx to Siet (and Bubi the cat!!!) for the dutch eggs and the wonderful familiar feeling during our stay. WE definitely will come back ! Cheerz, Marcus

Wow what a guy! Marcus stayed with 3 girl friends for 3 nights. They where all so cheer full and easy going. Marcus is very thoughtful and polite but yet very relaxed and full of humor. We all shared breakfast on their last morning which was a very nice get together. They left the boat spotless. Hopefully we will meet again, for sure they are all very welcome!

“Living like a local in real Amsterdam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014 for a stay in December 2013
1
person found this review helpful

We loved this boat. Quaint, charming and cosy it was the Amsterdam we were looking for. The location was great, convenient to the city (5 minutes by bike to Amsterdam Central train station) but a world away from the honky Tonk tourist traps. The boat itself is fitted out perfectly, just like a little house. The water is hot, the toilet is a real toilet (as opposed to a chemical pump toilet on other boats), a wood burning stove added to the cosy atmosphere which was sometimes hard to leave! It really had all the comforts of a home. The owner was great too. She was very generous with her time on arrival, sharing things to do in Amsterdam with us and was relaxed about checkout time.
Overall, I'd highly recommended this lovely boat. It's an authentic Amsterdam experience.

“wunderfull stay in a great houseboar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed 3 nights in the hous boat Tante Piet.
Allready on arrivel "Siet" the owner of the houseboat gave us a warm welcome and showed us so many stuff on a map to do.

The houseboat is such a great place.
It is modern and really really cosy. Expecially the wood oven.
I was there with my girl friend. It's a really romantic place :) So perfect to stay with your partner.

Siet made us brakefast and she took care on everything. A really relaxed and friendly person. I hope we will see her someday again.

Thanks for the great time.

“Lovely Little Boat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

If you're looking for a uniquely Amsterdam place to stay look no further. It's a beautiful little boat comfortably furnished with a cozy wood burning fire and a very friendly cat. We even weathered a bit of a storm in the boat and could barely feel the rocking. The only consideration was that it was a bit chilly since the main heating source is the wood stove, and if you are not particularly skilled at working one it can be a bit of an adventure to warm yourself up. The proprietor is very friendly, like a good aunt should be, and gives you recommendations of non-touristy places to frequent. We would have never found the best fondue in the city were it not for her advice.

“A perfect break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013 for a stay in November 2013

A really warm welcome from Siet to her lovely barge. She took time to make us very welcome with teas and provide her personal recommendations on what to see or do based on our plans. Her helpful approach created a marked up map of excellent bars, restaurants, shops and other areas to see, having visited Amsterdam a few times it was great to get a new perspective.

Siet briefed on how to use the barge and importantly how to light the log burner perfect for the cooler evenings. The barge is easy to find providing lovely stylish accommodation giving a different view of Amsterdam rather than the usual hotel. The barge is in really good location with tram nearby or 15 minute walk to the centre.

Space on the barge is great and for those worried about head room I’m 6’5” and there was no stooping or ducking. Excellent WIFI for event searching and pre booking tickets very useful for queue jumping.

We were welcomed by Boobie the cat on each return who defiantly likes company and sitting on the lazier visitor who avoids getting up and making drinks!

Overall a perfect place to have a break and see Amsterdam thoroughly recommend

“Unforgettable Amsterdam experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights in September 2013, and absolutely loved it. First of all, Siet, the hostess was fun, warm, friendly and happy to either chat with us or just let us do our thing. The boat itself was incredible, we loved everything about it. It was super clean, comfortable, and such refreshing change from staying in hotels or hostels. It is in an area just out of the busy centre of Amsterdam, about a 15-20 minute walk away. This was great because it meant being able to retreat to a quieter part of Amsterdam, away from the bustle of the tourist areas in the centre, while still being close enough to get there without a hassle. It also meant being able to see a little bit more of the city that was not so touristy. The boat is in a line of house boats on a street that is pretty much dedicated to just them, the other boats are not touristy, so it feels like you are in a little local community - almost like a local!
The bedroom was awesome, we really liked the raised bed, which was solo comfortable - and after a long day/night, the gentle rocking of the boat ensures you get off to sleep effortlessly. It also has a bathroom.
The boat has everything you need, and Siet was willing to help out with anything. She was great at letting us know where to go, and what to do (ask about the 'Stork' pub). She also provided some great food etc, and taught us how to make the Dutch bread roles super crispy for our breakfast. The second morning she cooked us breakfast, and....it was awesome!
Can't recommend this place enough, it was definitely a highlight for my girlfriend's and I Europe trip - looking forward to going back soon!!
