One of the best, and unique, places to stay in Amsterdam! It was outside the touristy part but close enough to the city to be able to experience everything. Our favorite part was the bikes! The bike ride was beautiful and gave us the real experience. Everyone was so helpful and we felt so welcomed!

We had a lovely stay in this gorgeous cabin. Thank you to Yvonne and Henk for breakfast and the option of borrowing bikes. Our anniversary weekend was definitely special thanks to our wonderful surroundings.

We definitely recommend! Beautiful, unique and cozy space. We could easily take a tram to the city center each day and we were offered bikes for free use! Host were super friendly and accommodating. We would stay here again for sure!

We have just had the most wonderful time staying on this houseboat for 3 nights. Our hosts Yvonne and Henk were truly lovely, and friendly and helpful. We had everything we needed, including wonderful sunsets to watch on the deck whilst sipping our wine in the evening, and it was so quiet at night too. Everything was lovely and clean, with little thoughtful touches such as breakfast on our first day provided. The bed was really comfortable. The free use of bikes was wonderful too, and meant getting to the tramstop was really easy, and we felt authentically Dutch as we cycled there every day! We also cycled down to the village nearby for coffee and wonderful Apple cake - a complete must. The supermarket across the road meant that we had easy access to provisions, and all in all our stay could not be faulted in any way. Our best Airbnb experience yet. I would fully recommend this as a top place to stay, and we'll definitely be back the next time we're in Amsterdam.

I would highly recommended anyone who visits Amsterdam to stay in this unique Airbnb location. Yvonne's houseboat was great and provided all the necessities we needed and more!

We stayed at the boat for 5 nights , and we loved it! :) Very helpful and friendly hosts. It was food in the fridge for the first breakfast. We borrowed two bikes for free, a unique way to explore Amsterdam. You live in the Noord, quiet and rural area, but only 25 min by bike to city central. Only 10 min walk to the tram if you prefere public transport. A great foodmarked and restaurant just 100 m away.

We had a wonderful time, hosts were very gracious, responsive and helpful with some travel tips and tram directions. They left us items for breakfast, also a plate of cheese. Grocery store directly across the street was a bonus, had everything we needed. Thank you for a great visit to Amsterdam, hopefully we will be back again in the future!
