The most and the best houseboats
We offer the most complete overview of houseboats rentals from all over the world, with a top ranking in Google. This makes us a true one-stop-shop for future guests. Just do a search on "houseboat rentals Amsterdam", "Houseboat rentals Paris" or "Houseboat rentals Florida" and you will most likely find us on top of page one. This enables us to connect tens thousands of houseboat lovers and owners each month. That’s what we do, and we’re good at it!
We send you an SMS notification when you receive a new booking request, besides the usual email of course. Guests will receive an SMS notification (and email) when you approve (or disapprove) their booking request. This way everybody is updated very quickly.
Don't want to approve a booking request first? Enable 'instant booking' and your guest can book your houseboat right away!
Do you recognize the problem that when you set a min-stay of 3 nights, gaps occur in your calendar of 1 or 2 nights? Well, we hear you. We created the gap filler. If you have gaps in your calendar shorter than your min stay, you can accept booking shorter than your min stay in such cases.
Safe and secured payments
All payments are processed by Adyen, offering a wide variety of payment options. This payment service provider checks the validity of each payment, adding extra security. We collect the payments for the houseboat owner and process the payout 24-48 hours after check in, giving the guest peace of mind that everything is ok.
Lowest service fees
Listing your houseboat is totally free. We only charge a small service fee when a booking is made. We’re proud to say we have the lowest service fees in the market. The service fee for travellers varies from 6 percent to 12 percent, depending on the duration of the stay. The service fee for owners is as low as 2.5 percent. But we have a great offer: new owners don’t pay any service fee during the first year!
Easy calendar synchronization
It’s super easy to synchronize the calendar on Bookahouseboat.com with the calendars from other platforms. This way you’re sure that all your calendars are always up-to-date, avoiding booking requests for unavailable dates and double bookings.
Add 'Extras' and make more money
We offer the option to add as much ‘Extras’ as you want, for example breakfast, a canoe or the use of a hot tub. This is a great way to show all the amenities you’re offering and make more money out of each booking.
Great support from houseboat experts, we'll personally assist you as often as needed!
