    Easter in Amsterdam

    Staying on Isadora’s houseboat was a smart decision; it is stylish, comfortable and in a great location. It is so easy to get around from there, whether on foot or the easily-accessed trams and buses that are a few steps away. The neighbourhood is full of great restaurants and cafés as well as a large grocery store a block away. In the mornings it was wonderful to sit in front of the open windows with a coffee and watch the boats going by. But it made leaving the boat a bit difficult.

    Communicating with Isadora was very easy and she answered all of my questions.  I would highly recommend a houseboat experience for anyone considering it.

    Great Houseboat

    Great hosts and nice hosts. The location is close to everything and was hoping with activity. There's a grocery store on the corner of you want to stock up on snacks and drinks. Isadora was very responsive when the houseboat had a minor electrical issue. The issue was resolved immediately. There were bath towels but as we were there ladies we could have used more and didn't think to ask. We would have washed the towels (and also the tablecloth - sorry) but there is no washer. Also be sure to bring a converter for 110 electrical since the houseboat has standard European outlets. If you forget to bring one you can purchase it at any number of convenience stores on Rozengracht.   Would definitely recommend a stay at Isadora's houseboat.

    Great houseboat in the heart of Amsterdam

    Beautifully located in a lovely part of the city. Access to great restaurants and stores. Right across from a store that sells 4000 plus beer and wine. On the route for the boat tours and on off canal boat access. Five minutes from Anne Frank museum “requires on line tickets”. The houseboat was amazing, expensive but with this access worth the extra. Access to the boat was easy and no issues. The place is beautiful with everything needed for the stay. Definitely worth giving an excellent review of.

    Lovely weekend in Amsterdam (October 2019)

    We spent the weekend on Isadora's houseboat and it totally blew us away and surpassed all expectations. In short the houseboat is;

    * Clean, tidy and beautifally decorated

    *In a stunning location next to a little bridge with great big windows that open up onto the canal

    *Easy to find and only a 20 minute walk into the heart of Amsterdam

    *Has everything onboard you will need including comfy beds, towels, utensils etc...

    We absolutely loved it and will definetly be booking again to come back soon! 10/10.

    Houseboat review

    We had a lovely stay on this houseboat. Very clean, bright & so cosy. We had a couple of ducks swim up to our window each day which was so sweet. The boat was 10min walk to Dam Square. So easy to find our way around. We will definitely be returning, the host was very kind and made our stay very comfortable. Xx

    Lovely weekend in Amsterdam

    The houseboat is great! It is very clean, is equipped with everything you might want to need, wonderful beds and bedding. It is right next to a tram station which makes traveling within the city super easy and comfortable. The owner is very reliable and super easy to communicate with. I would recommend it to anyone who ever wants to experience a stay at a houseboat! What is more lovely than a little duck coming to the window in the morning and asking for a crumb of bread. We enjoyed it tremendously!

    Wonderful holiday

    The houseboat is wonderful, everything is brand new and everything is clean. The view on the canal is breathtaking, especially towards a church some hundreds meters away. It is also well connected to the main attractions of the city and to the airport. Isadora was very kind in storaging our luggage til our departure in late afternoon.  I would suggest for sure this houseboat to one of my friend!

    Cozy, comfortable, convenient and perfectly located

    We had the best stay at this cozy and very clean, well equipped houseboat in one of our favorite locations. Such a simple and easy check-in process and extremely friendly hosts. Highly recommended for two friends or a couple with a child.

    Comfortable houseboat on super location

    Our visit to Amsterdam was given an extra dimension by the comfort aboard the houseboat of Isadora. Not only the location is super convenient, but also the boat itself. It feels like a modern apartment, but then with swans and ducks swimming by, happy people in boats enjoying the water life and the reflection of the water dancing on the ceiling. What a great place to stay. And as a beer enthusiast I have to say that I found the most amazing delicatessen shop just around the corner on the other side of the street. Finding this much local and unique beers made me a very happy person. Top notch! Thanks for this unique experience and we hope to be back next year, again staying on your boat if available. Highly recommended.
