“A home away from home”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We just loved our stay with Siet. The experience of staying on the boat was like no other and I would highly recommend staying on this one. All mod cons and very comfortable. Siet also helped us with what to see and little pieces of local knowledge tgat you just couldnt get elsewhere.

Thanks for a wonderful say in amsterdam Siet. We will return with our little one some day.

“A real little Dutch treasure”
Reviewed July 23, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Once you arrive in front of the red little Houseboat and you step inside, the only word that comes is « Wow » !
I organized for my boyfriend’s birthday a week-end in Amsterdam and I wanted it to be exceptional. As we had always dreamt to sleep on a boat, I booked a night on the “Tante Piet Houseboat”. Our stay on this boat was even more beautiful than we could have ever imagined.
The houseboat owner – Siet - did a fantastic job in decorating the boat with good taste and much love, making it really cosy and charming. The boat is also very well equipped, with everything you need generously provided. We particularly enjoyed the quiet area in which the boat is located, so that we could hear in the night the gentle sound of the water.
Siet (and Boobie the cute cat) warmly welcomed us on board at our arrival. Siet is a very friendly and open person, helping you out with any questions you would have. We had an excellent contact and very interesting discussions with her, as she is has traveled a lot around the world.
So, if you are willing to make your stay in Amsterdam really special and unforgettable, I recommend you to experience this Houseboat! It is a real little Dutch treasure. Definitely a MUST!

“Perfect stay on a cosy houseboat at a top location with a sweet host.”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We enjoyed our stay on houseboat Tante Piet very much. The boat is located near the center of Amsterdam and we visited Amsterdam by foot and by bike (rented for a small price at houseboat tante piet). Siet is a very nice person and she makes sures your stay at the boat will be a plesent one. It's a tiny boat with lots character with a the things you need. Even the temperature on the boat was good with outside temperatures above 30 degrees. The breakfast was good. The price was good. Nothing to complain about.

Siet made us feel welcomed, comfortable, relaxed and gave us as much space or attention we needed and made the stay an absolute joy. The houseboat is stunning - just a short walk from Centraal Station and incredibly you suddenly find yourself in a really quiet area of central Amsterdam with very little traffic. I wish I could have stayed longer!

“Ideal choice of accommodation”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Siet thanks for a wonderful 4 night stay on your houseboat.
The boat is a real credit to you, its evident that you have put your heart into making the boat homely & comfortable.
All of the details given in the description of the boat and the location are accurate.
We had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay in Amsterdam & your hospitality really made us welcome.
A lovely boat in a great location, everything in walking distance & great to have access to bikes straight from outside the boat.
what more could we ask for !!
Kind regards,
Dawn & John.

“the best place to stay in amsterdam!”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Had a fabulous stay on this very cosy and homely boat. It's so close to the city centre but on a very quite boat. Siet is a lovely lady and makes you feel very welcome and gave us a map and helped us find everything we needed. You must try her Dutch eggs in the morning. I had such a nice stay that I'm already planning going back next year.
