The boat is lovely! The boat is perfectly equiped, small kitchen, eating place, sofa + tv, double bed and a nice view - one feels easily private and at home. The area around the boat is quiet and a bit rural, a very interesting contrast to the busy city. A few minutes behind the boat one finds a supermarket and a small restaurant. We really enjoyed our stay and we highly recommend Siem's bed and breakfast!
Wonderful boat house. Nice area, nice walk through the bridge. Lovely staff, Siem and Tom. It's like a house, probably better.
The houseboat is exactly like described. 2 minus points because of the bed, which is really hard, and sometimes it was really loud because other people had to walk over the boat to enter theirs.
The rest was great, the place is wonderful and calm.
Really lovely houseboat. A little further from the main part of Amsterdam where we wanted to be, but once we got to know what tram, bus etc to get this wasn't a problem. Houseboat was lovely although mattress a bit hard if you have a back problem. Overall we had a lovely stay.
Rent Siems houseboat, ie: Cheerful (and mindfully) climb over other boats and then go shopping or glorious feast in the market before the dike and at bedtime ships and star gazing and after waking up delicious croissants enjoy (market), and coffee, then with bus, tram, boat and on foot to experience Amsterdam.
Siems Hausboot zu mieten, das heißt: Fröhlich (und achtsam) über andere Boote klettern und dann einkaufen oder herrlich schmausen im Markt vor dem Deich und vorm Einschlafen Schiffe und Sterne gucken und nach dem Aufwachen köstliche Croissants (Markt) und Kaffee genießen, danach mit Bus, Tram, Boot und zu Fuß Amsterdam erleben.
Very charming, convincing and genuine experience for us to stay on a houseboat in the original environment. No hidden agenda ... just the real life on a houseboat in the real suburban houseboatscenary.
6 km to the center of the city. By car very easy to find city-parking just next to tha trainstation and a 5 minutes walk to the center of shopping. Parking 5 euro an hour.
Just next to the houseboat a very big, rich and original Landmarkt where every needs for the kitchen and meals are available together with fresh baked bread. Super nice ... and not very expensive.
Siem and his father live right next door and are very kind and helpful. We brought our dog, Cocker Spaniel and we were asked if we wanted anything special for the dog :-) Very kind people.
We won't hesitate to make a reservation in this houseboat again. All our recommandations

Very comfortable accommodation with all facilities in a stunning location on the outskirts of Amsterdam and Siem's parents were very helpful and friendly. It is a bit of a walk to the tram stop but once there it's a short journey right into the centre. Wifi was very hit and miss but the stunning views made up for it. Would definitely recommend for a chance to see the other side of Amsterdam.
We had a wonderful time in Holland and the boat is much more beautiful than the pictures .. Everything was perfect, we wanted not at all want to leave and come back repays. <3
Wir hatten eine Wunderschöne Zeit in Holland und das Boot ist noch viel schöner als auf den Bildern.. Alles war perfekt wir wollten garnicht mehr weg und kommen aufjedenfall wieder. <3
