    A great find

    A lovely houseboat that is away from all the noise of central Amsterdam but within a 20 minute walk.

    Everything was provided that was needed for a short stay and the bed was really comfortable!

    Would definitely stay here if we visited Amsterdam again.

    Amazing houseboat!

    We just stayed 3 days at “De Volle Maan” houseboat, and it was absolutely the greatest and most comfortable experience. It was clean and very cozy, and the area is so beautiful and silent, and still very close located to the City centre. Maroesja welcomed us with a big smile and was super friendly. We can difinately recommend this lovely houseboat. Thanks for a great stay :)

    Amazing stay at Maroesja lovely houseboat

    We just stayed at the beautiful houseboat, which was really great located. Just 10 min from the Centraal Station and 20 min to walk to the city center.

    The check in was very uncomplicated and it was possible to get in one hour earlier as agreed.

    Everything was fine and the houseboat looks exactly like the photos. Maroesja was very friendly and always helped us in cases of questions like.... (where is the next café, bike rental,....).

    I would always recommend the houseboat. It made our stay really special. Thanks for all :)

    A beautyful and clean Houseboat with the real Flair of Amsterdam. It felt like coming home: very cozy, comfortable and in a silent area. To the next Shops it was just a 10 Minute Walk, for us the perfect Location! This made our first trip to amsterdem to a unforgetable experience. Thanks for that! Absolutely recommendable and a Must-do!

    Absolutely perfect

    Just on the way back from a beautiful 3 nights in Amsterdam. The boat was perfect for location, decor, and room. It is definitely a way to stay, unique, quirky and fun. I would definitely come back to the full moon houseboat again.

    Full moon houseboat

    It was quite an experience staying in this houseboat, making us look back at history and Amsterdam, set in a lovely quiet area, easy to walk through and gaze at centuries-old housing, bridges, and canals. The owners were charming and easy-going, at the ready for suggestions. Interesting times were had!

    Wow! LOVED the Boat!!!

    Such a wonderful unique experience staying on a boat on a canal in the “city of canals”. Spacious enough, quiet, easy walking to the main tourist areas, very accommodating and friendly hosts, etc.  Would definitely stay here again.

    Beautiful stay on the houseboat!

    We really enjoyed our stay on the houseboat! It was clean, quaint and just the size for 2 travellers. The balcony of top of the houseboat was the perfect morning view. A little bit north of central station, so much quieter and local area, but only about a 15 min walk to all the action. Would definitely recommend!

    Excellent Stay!

    Maroesja’s houseboat was perfect! Beautiful setting, just a short walk from the hustle of the busiest parts of the city. They provided everything we needed for our stay including awesome recommendations for things nearby. Very happy with our choice to stay here!

    Belle chambre au calme sur l'eau !

    Nous sommes venus visiter Amsterdam pendant 4 jours, cette chambre fut parfaite pour se reposer sur l'eau, au calme et non loin du centre ville (10 minutes à pieds des premières boutiques).

    Facile d'accès depuis l'aéroport, un bus s'arrête à 300m.

    Proprietaires sympathiques et de bons conseils (un grand merci pour le check out tardif !)  

    Nous reviendrons avec plaisir !

    Full moon BB houseboat

    it was just perfect. The room was super clean and the boat was just beautiful. Location was just what we needed. Calm and quiet location, but only 20-minute walk from the city centre. The breakfest basket was amazing! Warm croisant, warm bread, fresh fruits, yogurt with fresh berries, fresh juice, ham and cheese.. everything was just perfect. We we’re there 2 nights. I wish, we could have stayed longer <3

    Perfect Boat & Perfect Location

    Staying on this beautiful boat enhanced our first trip to Amsterdam no end.  Beautifully decorated, super comfy bed, powerful shower and great location in a quiet neighbourhood, but close enough to the sights and nightlife.

    Will definitely recommend!

    Thanks again so much for being fabulous hosts!

    Wonderful stay

    We have just spent 4 days on this lovely boat, very quirky but loved how relaxed it was, the owners are really helpful and nothing is too much trouble.   This boat is in an ideal location only 10 minutes walk to the centre of Amsterdam but still out of the chaos in a quiet chilled out location.  Would definitely return here for my next visit.

    Clean, save, central, and a lovely houseboat

    We loved staying on Maartje's houseboat - it was such a great way to experience Amsterdam. It was clean, safe, and within walking distance to the city's main attractions. Thank you for having us!

    Nice houseboat

    Nice houseboat, very clean and cosy, for our short stay (3 nights), located in a quiet district. The only thing to be aware of is that it is 20-25 min walk from the city center.

    Houseboat was exactly as listed: perfect!

    The accommodation was perfect and exactly as listed. Maartje provided everything that we could possibly need and despite being on the boat with her family we had complete privacy with our own separate entrance. The location is close enough to the centre to be within walking distance but its a quiet residential area so lots of peace and quiet if you need it. We will be coming again. Thanks Maartje for everything :)
