Houseboat summary

    beautiful to be on the water a bit outside of the city, but very easy to reach downtown - 10' by tram after around 10' walks and more trams on the other side going also into the city. So a very nice spot to spend some days in Amsterdam, enjoying living in the front of a house boat in a clean and nice apartment.

    Good Experience on the boat


    Sleep in a Island boat was a nice experience.  The main badroom was really cozy , bright and with the view of the river outside , you can forget the tiredness of our long walking tour in Amsterdam. The place was quite, We didn't cook inside but seems equiped for. The house boat is about 20 min by tram (nr 26) and 10 min walking from the central station. Bob is a good owner, friendly, available. We definitely enjoyed our long weekend ! Thnks

    Great place to stay

    Great place to stay when visiting Amsterdam - 20 minutes walk and tram ride to the Central Railroad station, yet totally quiet and restful at night. We had a great time in the wheelhouse watching sunset and stars come out. Bob is a great host and made us feel very welcome. The boat is spacious and comfortable, we would definitely stay there again!

    Great getaway

    Bob has offered us a magnificent stay. The privacy of the boat, made it an amazing place to get away from everyday life. An amazing experience. The location was very secluded but still close to the city center. We\'ve enjoyed it very much. The boat had everything you\'d expect to find in a proper hotelroom. WiFi, bathtub, smartTV, comfortable beds and a fully equipped kitchen. A perfect place to spend the weekend with friends or family.
