“wonderful experience of being a true Dutch”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This is the last destination of Netherlands, but this experience make all three of us most memorable!

The houseboat is a lovely, warm and well equip home because it's really my home of Amsterdam. Not a hotel nor a simple B&B that you can find easily anywhere. Our super friendly and helpful host, Siet, made us traditional Dutch food tosti's welcoming us when we arrived, and save her own time to cook another famous dishes white asperges with eggs and hams which is you can experience the true taste of white asperges, but also the warmest heart of a local, Auntie Siet, as my little son call her like that.

The little real wood burning fireplace was in the middle of the dining room, which made us crazily love this little boat and play with in for the whole night. After going out, you can smell the lovely smell of the wood without opening the door. You will know someone is already preparing the warm and nice dining room for us by starting the little fireplace, the most heart warming wordless welcome from Auntie Siet.

While you are staying in the boat, you can feel the quietness of the city, but at the same time, enjoying the convenience of being in the city center of Amsterdam. Feeling a little bit moving of the boat, saying hello with the swans and duckies in the morning, and experiencing the true life of Dutch.

Not only Auntie Siet is sweet, little cat Boobie was the same. What a lovely little cat who give you the privacy, not disturbing your life, but welcome you with her way which you can feel.

Thanks for sharing not only the food, but also your own home and your life with us. We will definitely "go back home" if come back again!

“Romantic, easy going and lovely accomodation”
Reviewed 9 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Living on the houseboat of aunt piet we felt the spirit of amsterdam, also got some qiet moments in the midth of the busy city. Our host Siet is very humorous and cool, we also got the best recommendations where to go. Our stay there had only one minus-it was too short! Hope to come back soon!

“Not just a holiday, but an experience”
Reviewed 18 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

From the moment of arrival until we left, we experienced the most beautiful accommodation, a wonderful host and ultimately holiday we will treasure forever. We celebrated my Dads 50th birthday together, mum, dad, brother and sister. Siet made us very welcome and even brought my father a birthday cake, we were given a 'home from home' feeling and couldn't recommend this place enough. I have told everyone about our holiday and the photos you see on the website, are most definitely what you get.
Siet a very personal thank you from all of us for letting us share your stunning home and for looking after us so well.
Have a great season and I'm positive we'll be back. x

“Perfect”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A lovely hostess, a great central location, a sweet boat in a quiet, easily accessibly community. Felt really safe even though it's so handy for the city centre. Easily accessible from the airport by train. Would book again in a heartbeat. Thanks Siet. X
