    Wonderful area

    I stayed five days with my wife and my sister-in-law at Ninas houseboat. It was functional, clean and located in a nice area. By tram we were in 15 minutes in the centre of Amsterdam and the tram is nearby.

    The railway bridge is quite near and you can hear the trains easily. 

    At all it was a very nice visit.

    il posto dove è situata l'houseboat è stupendo, il locale pulito e confortevole, i letti (scomodissimi), il treno ed i vicini sono stati il lato negativo del soggiorno.

    é stato comunque un soggiorno bellissimo!!

    Perfect stay :-)

    We spent very nice and relaxed days at Ninas place. The houseboat is lovely, clean and well equipped. Nina's directions were perfect and it was easy to find. Bus station directly in front of the houseboat, but Amsterdam centre is also reachable by a nice 30 minutes walk. We warmly recommend!

    Wonderful houseboat!

    We recently stayed for five days on this houseboat. It was fantastic. Very clean and up to date with a well-supplied kitchen. It was me, my husband, and two of our children. We had plenty of room. The canal it is on is quiet, unlike closer to the center of town where there is constant traffic and tourists. We saw coots, mallards, swans, gulls, and herons as we sat on the small deck enjoying the view. The houseboat is very close to the #14 tram and we found it very easy to get about. Javastraat is an easy walk away and has a grocery store and numerous restaurants. We were exceedingly happy with the houseboat and its location.

    Great houseboat

    Everything was perfect: easy check-in, equipments and a lot of space. Great small balcony and not to far from the centre. We enjoyed the time in Amsterdam.

    What a great spot!

    First, know that the houseboat is a little away from the central area (15-20) min transit into everything.  BUT, this was a good thing!  I loved our quiet canal.  We spent a lot of time at the kitchen table with the sliding door open watching the boats, herons, swans, and coots.  The downstairs Bed is very comfortable.  The shower is also very good.  Our kids had no complaints about the upstairs pullout couch, and the upstairs is huge!  Just a five minute walk to south is a great local street loaded with grocery stores and restaurants.  Anyway, we’re already trying to figure out when we can get back.

    Thank you Nina for your kind accommodation!

    Nothing was missing.

    The Houseboat was very clean, very near to walk to Amsterdam City and also to spend a homely night in the house boat.
    We can recommend the house

    Very nice houseboat in Amsterdam


    Very nice remodeled house boat. We, 3 American seniors stayed in this convenient located houseboat. Very close to bus and tram stops that got us to Central station area in less the 10 minutes. Very clean, nice modern kitchen and bathroom. Would stay there again. Owners stopped in for nice chat and provided info. Found 2 local (not tourist) restaurants in area and left cards. Saw everything in Amsterdam we wanted from this nice houseboat.
