House-Boat B090 ****

Houseboat 'Sunshine City'. This luxurious houseboat is located at one of the most exclusive streets of Amsterdam near the city centre, but feels like a summerhouse at the lake. The huge terrace offers sunbathing from the morning till late in the afternoon, and besides swans and ducks, even the neighbourman can swim by, since at this part of the river people often enjoy a swim. At the terrace a hot shower is available, just as a surfboard/small boat etc. Please inform the owners Paul and Cassandra if you would like to use their boat out on a trip on the canals of Amsterdam, they will be happy to explain the use of the boat and the nice places to go, for no extra charges.

The house itself is designed and decorated for luxurious living. The living room is spacious with a great river view. It offers a Spartherm fireplace and tv/video is offered to you on a large fully automized cinema sized screen via a beamer. The kitchen is fully equipped and also offers a great view over the river. Next to the living room is a large bedroom with a queen sized bed. In front of the round window there is a mango wood office table to plan your excursions into town. Downstairs you will find the bathroom with a double shower and a large jacuzzi with stereo and underwater color lightsand a bedroom. Also there is a simple extra bedroom, offering two single beds.

The boat is located at a 15 minute walk to the city centre. The metro is at a 3 minute walk and will bring you to the central station in 6 minutes. This fine neighborhood hosts many of Amsterdam's finest restaurants (Italian, Portugese, French, Greek and even Ethiopian). Further there are several terraces nearby that serve the finest breakfasts and coffee, and the supermarket is around the corner.

Strolling alongside the Amstel River into the city center you will be able to enjoy Amsterdam's finest architectural houses, the Royal Theatre, the Skinny Bridge and so on. The boat is the perfect base for your excursions into Amsterdam and the rest of the Netherlands. Review!

Lovely Introduction to Amsterdam
by Kimberly Ashbach

We were delighted with the houseboat and the comforts of having a "home" in which to relax during our stay in Amsterdam. The boat is well fitted out, and offered us room to spread out after spending a few days in a London hotel. Marie, who greeted us was very prompt, responsible and organized and appeared with a hair dryer for me when I did not have one at the ready so that was much appreciated! Our view was lovely and we enjoyed the boats going by and the very late night sunsets. The last day we discovered how to use the Metro. A little map and directions to arrive there via Metro from Central Station would be good for new arrivals. Cabs are not the most familiar with the area and are expensive to rely on. We had great hospitality in Amsterdam from the city at large and would love to return. Thank you for sharing your home!

Un séjour fabuleux dans un cadre idilique. Le house boat est totalement conforme à l'annonce. Un emplacement trés calme, en bordure d'un magnifique canal. Vous pourrez facilement vous rendre en centre ville en 10 minutes en vélo ou en prenant le tram ou le métro.

by Virginie MIROUEL

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette location tout à fait conforme à la description de l'annonce d'un très bon niveau d'équipement. Le cadre était même au delà de nos espérances.Nous avons apprécié le calme et la beauté de l'endroit. Nous avons pu profiter de la terrasse sous un magnifique soleil avec la visite des canards et des poules d'eau. Merci beaucoup à Paul et Cassandra ainsi qu'à leur charmant voisin pour leur accueil et leur générosité.
