    Incredible houseboat experience

    Henri was really nice and prepare everything for our check-in. The living boat is incredible and located just hundred of meters from the NDSM Pier. Everything was very clear, clean and Henri left us some dishes as we arrive very late in the night. So I totally recommend Henri. Just be careful about external people and noise because the area is really quiet.

    Awesome stay

    The boat is fantastic, photos don't even show how cosy it is inside. Henri is a great host. Our stay was awesome!

    What a nice surprise!

    Henri's place was an incredible hole-in-the-wall (or water) in the up and coming NDSM area. It wasn't in the center of Amsterdam, which was actually a very nice change from the touristy central area. It was easily accessible by bus and ferry. Henri is incredibly nice and the house itself is very spacious and cozy. The other houseboats in the dock area are fun to look at as well. The NDSM area is so unique and full of endless surprises that everyone should check it out even if you're not staying in the area. All in all, this was an excellent place to stay.

    Want to try a houseboat? Try this one!

    If you don't know how beautiful it can be to stay on a houseboat, try this! When the weather is fine, you can go upstairs and you find a terrace to enjoy the sun. Awesome! It is enough space for 2-3 couples. The ferry, which is free of charge, is nearby. The Bus Station is also very close to the houseboat and you will find nice restaurants and a bike rental around you. It was quiet area!

    boathouse

    Het was proper, maar vrij klein.

    We dachten bij de boeking eerder aan een echte boot.

    Dat was toch de bedoeling. Dus waren we toch wat ontchoogeld.

    Maar alles was aanwezig wat we nodig hadden.

    Lots of space and nice host

    We enjoyed our stay in this houseboat and our helpful host Henri let us arrive earlier. Very spacious boat located outside the tourist area not far from the free ferry boat to Central Station.
