Spacious Cosy House Boat

Boat, Entire place - Amsterdam, Netherlands

ID 98773
4.0 (10 reviews)



This cosy houseboat is situated at the main river of Amsterdam, the Amstel. It is on walking distance from the vibrant city with its many cafes, restaurants and tourist attractions. Train, tram, subway and bus connections are also close-by to get you anywhere in Amsterdam and Holland where you want.

If the sun is shining you can sit on the deck and enjoy the terrific scenery the Amstel has to offer: beautifully restored houses on the side, ships that pass along quietly, maybe even a lone rowing boat. If you prefer to be warm and cosy, we provide a spacious living room with a couch, dimmed lighting and even a woodstove.
Of course there is a tv, stereoset and wifi connection to suit your needs.

After you have had a nice bath in our luxurious bath, you can sleep in the double bed. When you wake up, prepare your breakfast in the just renewed kitchen or start your day by going to the Albert Cuyp market, which is just around the corner.

At the Albert Cuyp market, you'll find fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, flowers and plants as well as beautiful fabrics, trendy clothing, fine leather ware and jewellery. Take a haring at the fish cart or get yourself freshly baked syrup waffles to take home. You can have a coffee in a traditional Amsterdam café or in a highly modern pub. You'll find the statue of Holland's popular singer André Hazes at the corner of first Sweelinck street. With it's 260 market stands, Albert Cuyp is Holland's largest street market offering a variety of things to see.

From here you can go to a million other things Amsterdam has to offer!

We hope that your stay at my houseboat will add to beautiful memories of your stay in Amsterdam.

Please be advised that the height in the middle of the boat is 1,85 metres or 6"1, so if you're tall, watch your head!

    Saubere Unterkunft. Reibungslose Schlüsselübergabe. Außerdem war es kein Problem ein late-check-out zu vereinbaren:)
    Mit der Bahn ist man in 15min am Rembrandtplein. Also auch sehr zentral gelegen. Danke Jacob! Nächstes Jahr kommen wir wieder.

    Der Vermieter hat unsere für Ostern im Zentrum vom Amsterdam gemietete Unterkunft doppelt vermietet. Wir fanden uns dann am Rand von Amsterdam in einer spanisch-indischen WG wieder.
    Das scheint ja von diesem Vermieter hier schon mehrfach durchgezogen worden sein (s. andere Bewertungen). Eine versprochene Rückzahlung eines Teilbetrages hat seitens des Vermieters nie stattgefunden, stattdessen mussten wir uns Beleidigungen von ihm anhören.
    Ich kann nur jedem raten, die Finger von den Angeboten dieses Vermieters zu lassen.
    9flats.com hat sind in diesem Fall übrigens auch nicht als sehr hilfreich erwiesen. Schade, aber nein danke!

    For some reason I did not get an apartment I booked. Instead I got another apartment which was OK but quite far from the center which was very disappointing.

    It was difficult to get hold of Jacob by email before the trip but we eventually caught up by phone on the day we were travelling. He was very pleasant and met us at the apartment when we arrived.

Das Apartment war eigentlich ganz schön. Leider hatten wir nur sechs Stühle, einer davon war auch noch defekt, wir waren aber sieben Personen. Das Geschirr, besonders die Teller, sollten mal erneuert werden, und kleine Kaffeelöffel gab es auch nicht. Ein paar Haken im Badezimmer wären toll. Fazit: Es hat uns aber trotzdem gefallen.

The place was quite new and clean except the sofa (too old and dirty). Light is alryt and the location is nearly perfect. A good place for a 1 week stay.

Daniel is a wonderful, thoughtful host. He has loads of information for his guests and seems to be able to help with requests for any information about touring in the Netherlands. He's knowlegable about the art scene, too. The flat was really comfortable and had everything I needed. I used the bike and it was just right for cycling around Amsterdam. It took me about 15 minutes to get to the center of the city on the bike -- when I didn't get lost. Amsterdam is confusing to me, but I don't have a good sense of direction either. Anyway -- Daniel's is a great place to stay in Amsterdam. There are good restaurants close by and Flevopark is a few meters away.
