Wunderbare Herbsttage auf dem Hausboot
by Andrea Schiel

Wir haben die Tage auf dem Boot sehr genossen! Das Boot liegt etwas außerhalb vom Zentrum, dafür sehr ruhig und es ist das einzige Hausboot weit und breit, so dass man von niemandem gestört wird. Direkt vor dem Boot sind einige Parkplätze, die am Sonntag kostenlos sind und nur werktags von 9-24 Uhr zu bezahlen sind, so dass man die Koffer problemlos ausladen kann und danach einen Park&Ride-Platz aufsuchen kann. Direkt in der Nähe vom Boot (ca. 200m entfernt) ist eine Strassenbahnhaltestelle, von wo aus man sehr schnell zu allen wichtigen Punkten in Amsterdam kommt. Ein Supermarkt und ein sehr gutes Indisches Restaurant sind ebenfalls ganz in der Nähe. Das Boot selber hat ein großzügiges Wohnzimmer mit offener Küche, in der man inclusive Spülmaschine wirklich alles findet, was man braucht. Das Bad ist ganz modern und offensichtlich erst vor kurzem eingebaut - das Schlafzimmer klein und kuschelig. Auf der großen Fensterbank im Wohnzimmer kann man stundenlang sitzen und die Enten und Schwäne beobachten - sehr entspannend. Insgesamt ein wunderbares Boot für zwei Personen, sehr zu empfehlen!

Beautiful stay
by Judith Kanter

We stayed for 9 days and sometimes had to fight the urge to simply stay on the boat to relax and watch the other boats go by, instead of leaving to explore. Because it's outside of the main tourist area, there were no other boats around, and the location was perfect as far as getting anywhere else, walking or by tram. Wonderful hosts. We would love to stay again.

Houseboating in A'Dam
by Tryggvi Thayer

We had a great stay on Rita & Rod's houseboat. Rita & Rod met us at the houseboat and made sure that we had everything we needed. Great hosts!
The houseboat is very well situated a bit outside of the city centre, which is great for two reasons:
1. You get the feel of Amsterdam proper rather than touristy Amsterdam.
2. It's not as crowded and busy as other parts of the city.
Everything we needed was very near. Tram station a two minute walk away, supermarket right around the corner, plenty of restaurants around Van Woustraat, bicycle rentals nearby, etc.
We would definitely recommend Rita & Rod's houseboat to any of our friends visiting Amsterdam and would love to stay there again on any future visits.
