Very nice experience
We spent just one night in the houseboat but everything was great. We loved the boat, the position, the possibility to use bikes and the breakfast basket .

Relaxing and picturesque houseboat holiday
This was an amazing place to stay. It does take some time to get into Amsterdam, but this quaint little town with windmills is relaxing and picturesque. They provided us with bikes to get to the train and biking back through this little town at the end of the day was my favorite part of the trip. Amsterdam has many amazing attractions but if you would like to relax and be in the beautiful country side this would be perfect. It is such a lovely country.

LOVED THIS PLACE AND PEOPLE!
Peter and his wife are taking hosting to the next level - amazing in every way!Feels like their goal is to make your stay unforgettable and let you experience in a great, unique way what boat life means .
The boat ( Juliana ) - love it ! Everything that you need and MORE.
Fully equipped kitchen , high ceilings that gives you the feeling of a proper house , 2 bathrooms , cozy and large living-room , nice and comfortable beds, clean and very well decorated. Last but not least, the scenery from the roof terrace! No better place to relax!
You can swim if you like, you can fish (no licence required) you can have a barbecue or you can ask for anything else - I m sure they will find a way to help .
The neighborhood - taking you back in time! The windmills and distinctive green wooden houses were relocated here to recreate the look of an 18th/19th-century village. The first windmill is just 2 minutes away. Easy way to get to Amsterdam too with either train or bus option (about 20 -30 min ). We walk to the bus station just because I don't know to ride a bike otherwise the owners have all type of bikes for your use.
The host - we will never forget you !
Nothing is too much for them to make you feel special! Complimentary breakfast basket full with hot croissants, fruits and other yummies was amazing. The boat ride with the best captain and drinks included is what you need for a perfect evening .
Peter and his wife will respect your privacy but also be there for everything that you wish for.
THANK YOU FOR HAVING US ABOARD!

Houseboat Juul Amsterdam
- Excellent location and helpful host Joyce . Its a 10 minute bike ride to the station and 15 mins in Amsterdam central.
- The boat is very well equipped and comfortable .
- Improvements- much clearer directions, better info on travel at the boat and local facilities.
- The bikes were fun but not all have lights - essential when returning from Amsterdam
- A lot of lights didn't work on the boat.
- Overall we enjoyed ourselves.
