    Absolutely loved the accommodation

    We absolutely loved the accommodation and the offer from Frans to pick us up from the airport. That was so helpful as it made finding the place so easy as we often get lost haha.

    Frans was very polite and helpful and give clear instructions to everything. It was also really handy that we could borrow two of many umbrellas. The place was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. He even offered snacks and drinks, which we thought was very generous and sweet.

    We loved the surroundings of the beautiful houseboat, it truly is a beautiful place and home. And it was nice to stay somewhere a little different. The information book that they provide is also very handy and helpful. We really loved our stay here and hope to return :)

    Thank you so much Frans, to you and your partner for a wonderful stay. Scott & Dixie.

    A peaceful, cozy, wonderful stay

    A peaceful, cozy, wonderful stay. The home's location and cleanliness, created a warm and inviting atmosphere that truly felt like a home away from home. The cleanliness was top-notch, and hosts went above and beyond. The location was convenient, with easy access to restaurants, a super market, and public transportation directly into central Amsterdam. Communication and services provided by the host were seamless, making the entire experience stress-free.
