Houseboat summary

We love to share our spacious family houseboat when we are on holiday - and I'm sure you will love the place just as much as we do. Enjoy the sun shining in the large living room through the large sliding windows, watch swans and ducks swim by while you have an unforgettable time with your beloved ones. The terrace is very large. On one side you can lounge and on the other you can eat at the picnic table or take a shower after swimming. The living room is very spatious and the kitchen has everything you need for a gourmet dinner! Downstairs is a very luxurious bathroom. You can shower two at a time or enjoy the large bubblebath. In short, our house has everything you could want during your stay with us in Amsterdam.

    We spent three nights on the houseboat with two adults and two teenagers. For many reasons it was a perfect location for us.

    There is plenty of space, on the upper deck a large living room, a very well equipped kitchen and a bedroom, on the lower deck another bedroom, a bath with a lovely kids bedroom.

    The large terrace is overlooking the broad Amstel river which gives you more "privacy" compared to houseboats in a small canal. We enjoyed the evenings sitting there and watching all the boats passing by.

    The houseboat located in Amsterdams very nice De Pijp district where you can easily find lot's of nice restaurants and cafes. Supermarket and metro station to the city center are also nearby.

    Parking in the district quite expensive, so it's recommended to park in one of the car parks nearby (we parked at Switchpark Eenhoorn).

    We recommend this place.

    Wonderful place in Amsterdam - Very nice owner

    We were so glad that how wonderful this house was. Nice, clean and very convenience. It is right on the water looking out to the river, so if you happen to have a rainy day, staying at home is also good with a very nice view of the river from the living room. Walking distance to supermarket in case if you need something, and many restaurants around the the neighborhood for your evening strolling. Full kitchen with everything you need for your family, and the owner is very generous, they even have coffee, sugar, and cream for your morning, and all kind of spices just in case if you feel like cooking.

    Great stay

    Just stayed on this house boat. The location is fantastic & a lovely way to stay in Amsterdam rather than a hotel. While the house was very well equipped, some of the furniture was a little worn & needed maintenance. We also didn't like the amount of personal items still in drawers around the house- it did feel a little like snooping in someones house. Small observations/ quibbles but overall a great stay.

    Great Place in a Perfect Location

    This houseboat, with its full kitchen, beautiful deck, relaxing living room, spacious bedrooms, and large bathroom was fantastic for our family. When you add the quiet and completely convenient neighborhood on a sunny canal, we found this home to be ideal.

    What a nice week!!

    We had a wonderful stay on the houseboat! The owners were very, very nice and accommodating.

    The boat is just great as in the pictures and you are fast in the city center!

    That was certainly not the last time on this houseboat, we'll be back!


    Wir hatte einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt auf dem Hausboot!

    Die Besitzer waren sehr, sehr nett und zuvorkommend.

    Das Boot ist wie auf den Bildern einfach Klasse und man ist schnell in der Innenstadt!

    Das war bestimmt nicht das letzte mal auf diesem Hausboot, wir kommen gerne wieder!

    Der beste Platz um ein paar Tage in Amsterdam zu verbringen, wie zu Hause und mehr!!!!

    Das Hausboot von Paul ist geräumig, hell und modern eingerichtet, mit jede Menge Platz für alle. Aber vor allem auch mit einer großen Terrasse , wo man abends gemütlichen sitzen kann , quasi als Abschluss nach einem bunten Amsterdam Programm, Blick auf die Stadt und down unter gehende Sonne , nah gelegen an der Metro mit schnellen Verbindung in alle Richtungen. Es fehlte uns an nichts, ein kleines Problem (Absturzsicherung für Kinder an der Treppe) wurde schnellst von Irene und ihrem Mann besorgt. Hervorragende Gastgeber, jederzeit zu empfehlen. Danke dafür. Carola and Family
