    We had a great time in Amsterdam and this houseboat made the stay perfct! It\'s in a nice, quiet area with resturants all around, close to the tram, it\'s clean and spacious, perfect for 2-3 people. Maarten, the owner, was so nice and gave us lots of tips on where to go. The best part of the day was just sitting outside on deck and watch the boats pass by on the canal, and when the crane came to visit for his breakfast (and lunch and dinner). If I were to go back to Amsterdam, I would definitly stay on this boat again :)

    We spend 5 days at Marten´s Houseboat, and we were amazed about it. The boat is centrally located, nearby are supermarkets and there are just a few minutes of walkung to the metro station. The boat itself is equipped with everything what you need – dishes, pots, cutlery, stove and a coffee machine are in place. Also are there a few cooking utensils (we just used the toaster) are there. In the living room are a couch and a tv, smoking is also allowed in this area . Highlight: on the opposite of the couch are 2 oblongness mirrors on the upper wall, so you can see through the windows behind you and look on the boats on the water, and they can´t see you. In the bathroom is a shower with a sauna function (the water of the shower is going to be hot). The bed is comfortable and there are a few headrest pads to choose from. A plugbar is also in place. Our résumé: 1000 times better than a hotel, we were amazed an we will came back!

    Wir hatten supertolle Tage auf dem Boot von Maarten. Es ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet und man merkt, dass Maarten auch auf dem Boot lebt denn es ist wirklich alles vorhanden was man benötigt. Küchengeräte, Kochtöpfe, Besteck, Geschirr, Gewürze, Kaffe und sogar zwei kalte Heineken standen zur Begrüßung für uns im Kühlschrank bereit. Der Gastgeber ist sehr nett und hat und einige nützliche Tips gegeben. Z.b. wo es Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Nähe gibt ;) Insgesamt haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden bei unserer Rückkehr nach Amsterdam jederzeit wieder auf diesem Boot wohnen :)

    wowzers!! This boat was perfect for our short stay and we had a wonderful time. Maartan has a beautiful lived in houseboat oozing with character and there is lots on the boat that you just wouldn\'t get in a hotel or guest room. The boat is in a lovely quiet area only ten minute walk to where the main part is. I loved my coffee every morning from the coffee machine and watching the heron visit the boat deck! We enjoyed a cooked breakfast and also dinner one evening on the boat as Maartan left lots of lovely local food for us to sample. Also he has a great sound system to listen to music. The boat is cosy and warm and the bedroom is so comfortable and shower very good too. There was even toiletries to borrow and hairdryer house robes etc We really had everything and more. Im so glad I booked this and will def return. It was great to stay somewhere that was homely and we now have great memories from the boat. It is a very special place to stay.

    Boat owner was very hospitable and accommodating. We needed to arrive early before our conference and he said that was no problem. He walked us through the boat, which is very comfortable, and showed us how everything worked (which was also simple). Each morning a grey heron visited the small skiff right out side. At Maarten\'s suggestion we gave it a few small pieces of cheese, which he ate! My brother and I took turns sharing the bed or the couch in the living area. Stand-up shower was plenty large. Hot water and wifi was all fine. This part of town is quiet, but a short walk or bike ride to bars, cafes, restaurants and grocery. Would 100% stay there again.

    Das Hausboot war absolut toll. Es ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet und bietet alles, was man braucht. Das Hausboot liegt sehr zentral, aber sehr ruhig.Man ist zu Fuss schnell an allen wichtigen Orten in der Stadt. Wir können Marteens Hausboot nur empfehlen. Er ist sehr zuvorkommend und erfüllt einem jeden Wunsch.

  • Alberto

    This houseboat is excellent. The location is very good, only 2 blocks from the Metro, but in a quiet street, nice canal with just enough movement to be amusing. Maarten is very nice, I only met him at checkin, but he was super helpful and kind. The boat has everything, especially the well-equipped kitchen and the super hi-tech shower/sauna with plenty of hot water and complementary bathroom goodies (shampoo, conditioner, shaving cream, it has it all in good brands, so thoughtful...). Thanks Maarten, I definitely recommend and will surely go back.

  • Maresa

    Wir können dem Beitrag von Sarah voll und ganz zustimmen. Wir waren fast eine Woche im Juli dort und hatten glücklicherweise sehr schönes Wetter. Daher konnten wir auch die Terrasse nutzen. Diese ist mit zwei sehr bequemen Sesseln ausgestattet und sehr schön bepflanzt, sodass man in einer kleinen Oase zwischen duftenden Blumen sitzt (der Kanal riecht nicht). Außerdem gibt es noch eine Hängematte auf dem Dach. Wir können dieses Boot bestens empfehlen.

    Nous avons passé un agréable séjour sur la péniche. Le quartier est agréable, calme et très bien situé, nous partions souvent à pied de la péniche pour aller se balader. La péniche est très bien équipée (beaucoup d\'ustensiles de cuisine, d\'équipements électro ménagers, salle de bain avec serviettes, peignoirs, savon, shampooing, sèche cheveux, etc., hamac qui peut être installé sut le toit, parapluie en cas de mauvais temps. Tout y est ! C\'est également propre et très spacieux pour 2 personnes. L\'accueil par Marteen a été très chaleureux, il nous a tout expliqué. Nous recommandons cet hébergement !

  • Olivier

    Par où commencer!?Situation tout simplement idéale. La péniche : En un mot, EXTRA! En un peu plus de mots, déco sobre et élégante, aménagement sympa et de qualité, ambiance générale plutôt cosy. Belle luminosité, équipement moderne et agréable intimité. Quartier proche de tout mais néanmoins très calme.L\'Hôte : Discret, aimable et efficace. Frigo rempli à notre arrivée. Conseils pour le séjour et présent si nécessaire. Merci Marteen ;0)Conseil : venir en voiture déposer les bagages dans le house boat et ensuite aller stationner la voiture dans le parking de l\'Olympic stadium (Attention à bien garder son ticket de tram jusqu\'au moment de payer le parking le jour du départ. Sans cela le parking est hors de prix!). Une fois de retour à la péniche, louer des vélos. C\'est le plus simple et le plus agréable pour visiter Amsterdam.Mention à CityMundo et à Charlotte pour le suivi de la réservation et la réactivité.Séjour idyllique sans fausse note. Adresse vivement recommandée!

    We very much enjoyed our stay on this houseboat last week. It is very centrally and conveniently located in a pretty area with main sights and attractions within walking distance. It is beautiful old boat lovingly restored by its owner. The main salon is large and comfortable and there is a well-equipped kitchen. Because the owner lives on the boat when its not let it has a really welcoming and cosy feel. An array of goodies were left in the fridge for us plus Nespresso coffee for our use and free wifi. Because it was all so delightful we cooked in a couple of evenings, which is unusual for us. Nice bathroom with super shower/steam cabinet and lots of towels and nice toiletries. Large and comfortable double bed although with limited headroom. The canal was quiet and peaceful at night.There is also a small deck area with comfortable seats, which would be lovely for summer breakfasts and evenings – but sadly a little too cold in March! Planning to revisit next year when its warmer.

    Wir haben uns auf dem Boot ganz wunderbar wohl gefühlt. Empfangen wurden wir von dem sehr, sehr netten und umsichtigen Eigentümer, der uns Getränke, eine Suppe, Brot und Nüsse als Willkommen überreichte. Das Boot ist absolut perfekt und liebevoll ausgestattet - man merkt einfach, dass Maarten das Boot für sich selbst renoviert hat und es auch zeitweise bewohnt. Von der Musikanlage für das iPhone, über Handtücher ohne Ende und verschiedenste Duschbäder, eine vollkommene Küchenausstattung mit Geschirrspüler und einer Nespressomaschine samt Kapseln, Unterlagen zu Amsterdam, WLAN bis hin zu Kerzen, Räucherstäbchen...eine Wohlfühloase vom ersten Moment an!!! Die Lage des Hausbootes ist perfekt: absolut zentrumsnah und dennoch sehr, sehr ruhig. Bus, Fahrradverleih und Suppermarkt sind nur ein paar Minuten entfernt. Wir würden das Hausboot sofort unseren besten Freunden empfehlen und es jederzeit wieder mieten!!! Vielen Dank für den überaus angenehmen Aufenthalt.
