    Clean, neat and elegant houseboat rental in Amsterdam

    Diewert is a great host, very friendly and helpful! The apartment was clean, neat and elegant and we were really happy to experience life on a boat house and drink our morning coffee at Diewert's beautiful house yard. Moreover the house is located very close to the city centre and it's really enjoyable to ride the bike around this area! All in all my friend and I were very satisfied with our choice and would love to stay there again on our next trip to Amsterdam!

    Great houseboat, amazing hospitality!

    The place was clean, with a very good bed and excellent shower. The gentle rocking of the house and the birds by the water complimented the floating house experience, heating and Air condition working perfectly. Location was good in a quiet neighborhood with lots of transportation options to the major parts of the city. But the best was Diewert. On our second day my wife suffered an accident and broke her ankle. This completly destroyed our holidays. However Diewert was very helpful and accomodating: told me where to find open drugstores, got some extra info from the hospital that I needed for my insurance, helped us order some food since my wife couldn't walk around, lent me his bike so I could run some errands, booked our taxi when I found a flight back home, among many other smal things. This attitude helped smooth the situation we found ourselves in. We hope to go back to Amsterdam and experience the city properly with no accidents. Hopefully Diewert will be a part of that experience once again.

    On ne voulait pas rentrer ! Mais il a malheureusement bien fallu. Nous avons passe un super moment dans cette chambre bien agréable et confortable, en plus d'etre favorablement situe (10 minutes a pied pour le Jordaan, 10 de plus pour le centre-ville !). Nous choisirons le meme endroit si nous avons la chance de revenir a Amsterdam! N'oublions pas de praciser que Diewert est adorable et saura vous conseiller restaurants et bars si vous etes en manque d'inspiration.

    Wonderful experience, great boat, great hosts

    We loved our stay on Diewert's houseboat!!! Everything was set up perfectly for our stay and the accomodations were lovely. Arrival and departure were simple and we loved having the access code to enter the apartment, versus having to keep track of a key! On the evening we arrived, Diewert greeted us and offered ideas for where to eat. We loved the suggested Foodhallen, which had a variety of different vendors and food options. Diewert graciously offered to coordinate our cab to the airport on our last day! Due to an accident, the scheduled cab was delayed and Diewert was quick to coordinate a replacement. This was such an appreciated gesture. If ever back in Amsterdam, we will be quick to book this houseboat room!! Thanks again, Diewert and family, for the wonderful experience!!

    Wonderful houseboat in Amsterdam!

    Absolutely wonderful houseboat in a nice area. Diewert was at the house on our arrival, willing to offer advice and help whenever we needed. The room added to a fantastic weekend birthday break.

    All in all a great experience

    This is a really nice, clean, quiet and well managed room in a houseboat about a 20 minute walk from the city center. Our host was kind enough to recommend some fantastic restaurants (we especially enjoyed Noordwest) and my partner and I felt both a warm welcome and a sense of privacy. The room itself felt more like a hotel room than a room in a houseboat (not sure what we expected), but the water right outside the window was a nice amenity. There is a reasonably priced minibar, which was nice to have given that the location is a bit of a walk from commercial areas. All in all a great experience.

    Very clean and newly decorated houseboat rental

    The house boat is a lovely place, and we really enjoyed staying there. It's a room on the second floor of the boat, with its own bathroom and entrance. A very private space! It's in a very quiet and peaceful residential area 10-15 minutes from central Amsterdam on a bike. It was very clean and newly decorated, and the place was cleaned while we were out during the day!
