    Quintessential Dutch houseboat holiday

    If you want to have a quintessential Dutch experience that provides the option of complete relaxation yet is close enough to walk or bike to major Amsterdam attractions then THIS is the place for you. You'll be the envy of all of your friends (even the Dutch ones) when you tell them that you stayed at this amazing floating home!!! The houseboat sits in a calm canal and is ideally situated near a park, grocery stores, coffee shops and easy access to everything you'd want to do. I stayed with my wife and two kids. Thanks for making this wonderful houseboat holiday come true. 

    All the best from Maryland

    Wonderful days Show original

    We really enjoyed the days on Niels' houseboat. It is centrally located. We walked into the old town every day, and it's not far to the Anne Frankhaus or the museums. Vis-a-vis is a small but nice park and the Vondelpark is only a few minutes' walk away. The terrace was wonderful and we made full use of it every evening. The only thing is that the owner lives on the houseboat himself and leaves that to us for a few days, we had overlooked that and therefore did not expect it. A little more shelves or free storage space would have been nice, but we were also 4 girls who had luggage with us. All in all it was a nice stay!

    Good Choice!

    We had a very good stay at the houseboat. The host was very friendly and the terrace is perfect in summer. Everything you need is nearby. Enjoy!

    Superb floating home with wonderful terrace

    My friend, my daughter and her boyfriend were all up for a suggested end-of-summer adventure in Amsterdam before returning to work and school respectively. Niels’ boat house was just the best place and the perfect location for our weekend away. A large chalet or perhaps cabin, the boat house sits in the canal, accessed by steps down from the canal side. (Don’t worry about dropping the key – it’s attached to a ball of cork!). There is wooden flooring throughout, a spacious living room, large inviting dining table, and huge windows looking out over the canal. There are two bedrooms, one very cosy but with a double-bed, a bathroom with state-of-the-art shower, small utility room or perhaps big utility cupboard, and a delightful terrace where my friend and I ate breakfast every morning, sitting in the sun. The boat house makes great use of space and has an uncluttered Scandanavian-style, while at the same time feeling warm and homely. The kitchen is really well stocked with utensils. It is a short distance from Niels’ place to Anne Frank’s house, and a little further, the centre of Amsterdam. The main museums are less than 30 minutes walk away, down café-lined streets though of course, you could hire a bike to get there. (Everyone cycles and often several children accompany their parent, strapped to the back seat or plopped into the front basket.) On the other side of the canal from the boat house is a small park with a bar and outdoor seating and well-stocked, late-night shop can be found just a couple of streets away. That said, do try to make time for an evening stroll along the Browersgracht waterway, where the canal bridges are lit up and there are spout-neck gables galore. Niels arranged for a host to meet us at the boat house, since we arrived on a late flight, but he had left us a welcoming note and bottle of wine, and he emailed the next morning to check that all was okay. Niels’ visitors book is testament to just how enjoyable it is to stay in his home and the’ determination of guests to come back and stay again. You can count us amongst those visitors, Niels. Thank you so much for letting us stay, we had a wonderful time.
