About the area
Location! Location! Location! That's most important where you are, well the Gaiforce One Houseboat is situated in just about the best and nicest location in Amsterdam. In the very heart of the 18th century old city-centre. If you look outside you have the feeling you find yourself in a 18th century oil painting. All around you there are 3 to 400 year old canal-houses and warehouses. It can't get better than that! It's amazing!
The houseboat is located on the canal-belt in THE JORDAAN, which used to be the poorest area of Amsterdam in the olden days, but is now the most trendy and favoured area by locals and tourists. There is a maze of narrow streets, with many lovely restaurants, pubs and quaint shops. On almost every corner you will find an café with an outdoor terrace, where you can enjoy a drink while watching the hustle and bustle of life on the canals.
In the 17th/18th century Amsterdam was a thriving trading post where ships brought their ware from all over the world to be stored in the warehouses of The Brouwersgracht. These warehouses you still see today and from your window! when staying on The Guest-Houseboat, these are now converted into very popular luxury and trendy loft apartments, sought after by locals and ex-pats.
Apart from the beauty of the area, the houseboat is ideally located for your visits to many of the important sights and a mere 10 minutes walk from the Central Station, would you want to travel outside of Amsterdam to for instance, The Hague (40 minutes by train), Haarlem (15 minutes), Rotterdam(50 minutes) or the airport ( 15 minutes) even the beach is just 20 minutes by train.
So you see... LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!!!
My name is Patricia, I live in the most beautiful city in the world on the best location and I love to share this experience with you that you can stay in my houseboat studio for an unforgettable holiday!

Hello Patricia, we had very nice days in Amsterdam. The houseboat is really very central. However, we were very appalled by the hygienic condition. For the money paid for a final cleaning, we did not get the impression that the houseboat is cleaned regularly. There were cobwebs everywhere, even at the entrance to the house. The towels were stained. Overall, the houseboat looked neglected. The closet was not usable, as there was hardly any space and blankets were thrown in the closet. According to the description and the price we did not expect that! It is a shame, as the location and surroundings were very good. But again we would not choose the houseboat, as there is no relationship between price and performance. Kerstin and Silke
REPLY FROM THE HOST
Hello Silke and Kirstin,
I am very sorry that the condition of the boat was disappointing to you and that the boat was not clean enough.
My regular cleaning lady was on vacation and I had hired a temporary cleaning lady who was clearly not on the level of my regular cleaning lady. I have never had complaints about theirs as my previous reviews always have 5 stars. Of course, this is not an excuse and shouldn't have happened! I sincerely apologize for this.
You always have a lot of problems with spiders on the water, much more so than in a home. Unfortunately, this is difficult to avoid.
We will do our best.

Beautiful Show originalShow original
Small but nice studio. Very centrally located, but still quite quiet, as only small boats and no larger excursion boats sail on the Brouwsergracht. The view is already wonderful from the bed and the mini terrace is exactly enough for two people with a drink ;-) The kitchen equipment is very minimalist Plates and some cutlery would have been nice, but after all, the woman has a pocket knife to be able to enjoy the cheese she has bought.

First time house boater
This was the first time we rented a houseboat and using bookahouseboat.com. The listing allayed a lot of our fears regarding what we might be getting into. The website also made it easy to communicate with the owner, Patricia, who was great and letting us know what to expect, and how to get to the boat and into it. Patricia’s pictures of the houseboat were accurate. We found a charming bedroom with a very comfortable queen size bed. The bathroom was much larger than expected, and had a very large shower. The Nespresso maker was very nice on those cold mornings. We found it easy to walk to everything we wanted to see and would absolutely rent again if we come back to Amsterdam.

The best thing was the location of this houseboat. Patricia was very helpful on local eateries - we had breakfast, coffee and croissants, at the same place three days in a row, which she told us about. Patricia accommodated our need to check in early, and was very prompt to let us in. She left a great bottle of wine for us to enjoy on the deck. Overall the accommodations met our needs.
