Urlaub auf dem Hausboot B011
by Aaron Neumann

Wir haben uns auf dem Hausboot sofort wie zu Hause gefühlt. Es ist sehr gemütlich, nicht ganz zentral gelegen, aber dafür in wunderbar ruhiger Lage. Die Vermieterin war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Perfect for our family of 4! Real neighborhood feel
by Margaret Fraser

Rita started off our visit well by meeting us at the door to her charming houseboat. She had good ideas and was very helpful. We loved the neighborhood, de Pijp. Only 5-10 minutes walk from the houseboat are a number of good places to eat, ranging from Dutch: Eten aan de Rijn (one of our favorites), to Turkish to hip Italian. Also several good groceries with fresh produce, variety of all foods and prepared dinners if you want to eat in.
Rita made up the 2 sofas for our 12 and 14 year old. Houseboats are not large, but this one was laid out in a way that fit us all. Well-organized, clean kitchen. Quiet canal, neighborhood feel. This is apart from the tourist action, which we were glad to go to see, and glad to escape from as well. One day we rented bikes from a place 2 minutes walk away, and biked north over to Durmerdang and Ramsdorp and all around - beautiful, and the bike lanes and accommodations are so impressive. On our final day, Rita arranged an early morning cab to the airport. Thanks, Rita and Rod. We hope to be back and will stay with you again!

Amsterdam Trip 6/20 - 6/27
by Diane Jon-Ming

We truly enjoyed our stay on the houseboat. What more could we have asked for. It had all of the amenities you would need. There were four of us my husband and with two teenage grandkids who were throughly enthralled by it all and you know how hard it is to please teenagers, they had their wifi and TV. The houseboat was bright, cheerful and homey. My granddaughter and I slept in the bedroom which was prefect for us and husband and grandson slept on the large double pull out couch perfect for four people. We arrived later than our expected time and Rita was waiting for us with a lovely welcoming smile. The view on the water was wonderful we enjoyed looking out the large picture windows at all the activity going on; there was a mother and father duck waiting for their eggs to hatch..we were looking every day hoping they would hatch so we could see the babies before we had to leave. You can get the #4 tram and in 20 minutes you can be at the Central Station. Plenty of shops and places to eat in the area as well, right around the corner. Rita and Rod were the best, wonderful people at making you feel at home away from home. Once again can't say enough we LOVE'D it.
