Perfect location near trams, good restaurants (loved Eatmosphera and L'Opera cafe), organic bakery called 'Bake My Day). Simon was an obliging host who welcomed us and our guests with an easy, unobtrusive charm. Comfy beds and well-equipped kitchen. Loved watching the river traffic on the Amstel as it passed by the houseboat along with the families of moorhens. It was a truly different experience.

Great accommodations, great location, great landlords. We stayed here over Kings Day 2014 and had an amazing time. A unique experience to be able to sleep on a houseboat on the Amstel. The rocking of the boat was minimal, and did not bother us at all.

The boat was clean, had everything we needed and was more...
