Amazing hosts, gave lots of tips and we're very helpful. Showed us around the apartment and left us to it for the rest of our stay. The boat was well kitted out for our arrival and shopping facilities 5 minute walk away. Really wish we could have stayed for longer! Thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to stay in Amsterdam

This was a dream come true experience. I've always wanted to stay in a houseboat in Amsterdam and it exceeded my expectations. I never wanted to leave. The entire experience was perfect.

Excellent accommodation managed by excellent hosts! Location is perfect and the boat really made our Amsterdam experience exceptional. Everything is as described. I think the most surprising part is that despite the busy activity on the canal by day (which was indeed great fun to watch from the boat abode with morning coffee or evening cocktail) - you could literally hear a pin drop at night. A short walk to/from Centraal Station but out of that hub bub. High recommend!

Arie was such a lovely host. He waited for us at the boat to welcome us in a nice way. The ship was really cozy, clean and silent. The bed and the shower were great. The location is awesome. I would definitely recommend it.

Our stay on Arie's houseboat exceeded all expectations. It is spacious, comfortable and perfectly located. Arie met is at the boat on arrival and oriented us to the ship and the neighborhood. There are lots of things to see and do nearby, but nothing beats sitting on the deck with a glass of wine watching the boats go by! The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was quite roomy with a shower and a tub. All in all, it was more luxurious than we expected. Arie's beautiful home is the perfect way to experience Amsterdam!

We had the most incredible experience staying at Arie's houseboat. He was completely understanding and accommodating of our check-in time, and he added so many special touches to the boat for our trip. The ability to stay right on the canal with our feet up drinking wine watching the boats go by was spectacular. The boat is big! And filled with anything you really could need, even the bathroom has double sinks. The location is perfect, you're a short walk from everything. We are so happy we picked this houseboat, we're convinced we picked the best one with the best host! Thank you for everything Arie, we had so much fun in Amsterdam!
