Thanks to Richard and Brigit, our hosts, for an amazing time on beautiful houseboat Jupiter. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great so we weren't able to enjoy sitting outside on the deck. Excellent position on the canal with an amazing view of "Skinny bridge". The only problem we had was getting down into the boat and back out again as the steps are quite steep with no railing. We definitely will consider doing this kind of vacation again, so different from the boring hotel stay. We couldn't have chosen a more beautiful Houseboat. Thanks again Richard and Brigit for our stay in Amsterdam. Until next time .........
Pity about the weather but still thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our first time on a houseboat and it came into its own when the sun came out. It was brilliant sitting on the deck watching the world go by. Comfy beds, plenty of hot water and nice bathroom. Perhaps a good idea to provide an instruction manual for heating,tv, coffee machine.
From start to finish this was the best experience we could have wished for in Amsterdam. Booking was easy and communication with the owners swift.
We found the boat easily and everything was as in the photographs. Our worries about the chilly December weather being a problem were allayed as Jupiter has very effective underfloor heating, so we were very cosy indeed.
As well as the bedrooms we used the sofa bed upstairs. Our daughter loved waking up to see ducks passing by the portholes!
The boat provided great views of river traffic and the lovely Magere Brug. Despite being a tourist area the boat was very peaceful and private.
Really can't fault Houseboat Jupiter. Richard was always on hand for anything we needed. It is in a perfect spot, within easy walking distance of all the main sights of Amsterdam.
We will miss sitting out beneath the stars watching the world go by on this lovely boat.
The houseboat was immaculate! What a fun place to stay, beats a hotel any day! Richard was lovely and very informative. The boat was in a great location and very romantic.
