We had a lovely few days on Niel's boat! A lovely, peaceful location that I would definitely revisit.

Neal is a fabulous host and the listing was exactly what we were looking for. The boat itself is very nice and clean and the surrounding area is full of beautiful sceneries. All the people in the local area are very friendly and everyone could never do enough to make sure your time in the country was enjoyable. The boat is situated just outside of Zaandam which is only a short bus journey or taxi ride away. This also made it very easy and cheap to get to Amsterdam itself. Overall, it is a listing I would highly recommend to any couple visiting the area and wouldn't think twice about coming to stop again.

Very clean, fast communication, informative travelplan with points of interests! You may find it noisy due to the planes arriving and departing form Shiphol airport passing over the harbor throughout the day, but we got used to it quickly and had no trouble sleeping. If you arrive on the weekend, also notice that shops and groceries are opened on sundays in the Netherlands.

We had a very nice time at the boat. It was easy to reach Niels and to get on the boat. The boat was clean and the harbourmaster always helpful. We didn't miss anything.

It's an amazing experience to stay at Niels' houseboat. Although it's not that big, it has got everything you'll need. We enjoyed sitting on deck an watching the harbour. Just the planes disturbed the idyllic settig a bit. Niels is very communicative and flexible in case you need to change plans. Although we didn't meet him in person, everything was well prepared. If you need some help, you can always ask the harbourmaster Eric, who is a totally nice guy. The toilette is an adventure, but you get used to it very fast. All in all we had a very good time and recommend this place to everyone who likes an alternative way to travel.
