Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Staying on Frans's houseboat was my favorite part of visiting Amsterdam! I thought it was SO much more fun than a hotel. Though the location is not downtown it's very accessible to public transportation and it's in a great neighborhood. Frans equipped the place with nice amenities like shampoo, snacks, and wine! We also enjoyed borrowing his bikes one day to ride into town. Frans was very quick to respond to any queries I had, and he picked us up at the airport when we arrived and dropped us at the bus station as we left (we chose to ride the bus back to the airport--Frans asks 20 Euros each direction so we wanted to save a little on the way home). Highly recommend!

  • Super séjour chez Frans. Très serviable et à l'écoute de ses hotes...
    Très bon rapport qualité pour l'houseboat.
    Il est idéalement situé entre l'aéroport et le centre ville;
    Un petit peu de marche pour rejonidre le tram, mais dans un environnement très sympa
    A conseiller!

  • My boyfriend and I stayed for 10 wonderful days at the house boat which was perfect! Frans was kind enough to pick us up from the airport and has all kinds of useful information in different languages waiting for you. The house boat was a bit of a distance from Amsterdam centre, but we did not mind as you can escape the hustle and bustle after a packed day of exploring and have peace and tranquillity at the apartment, chilling with the birds and water. Frans and his wife are such lovely people and were a total pleasure to stay with, they are always on call to help you out and just next door if you need any extra towels or bedding. The apartment is extremely well designed, cozy and makes you feel so at home, we just wanted to become permanent residents!! They were extremely flexible with our check out as our flight was late and last minute took us back to the airport which was a life saver and just shows what wonderful accommodating people the are. I really can not say enough great things about this place and its hosts, you will not regret booking this. We will definitely be coming back in the future and seriously looking forward to it, thanks so much to you both for making our stay and Terry's 30th Birthday the best ever.

  • Eine tolle Unterkunft in Amsterdam! Das Hausboot ist sehr schön eingerichtet und man fühlt sich schnell daheim. Die Wohnung ist komplett getrennt von den Hosts und man hat komplette Privatsphäre. Die Tram Station (25Minuten bis zum Zentrum) und den Supermarkt erreicht man zu Fuß per schönem Spaziergang in circa 15Minuten. Man kann aber auch das Rad nehmen, das zur Verfügung steht. Franz und seine Frau sind sehr nett, auch wenn wir nur kurz gesprochen haben. Sie haben uns beim Bahnticket geholfen und zum Schluss sogar zum Airport gefahren. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder-dann hoffentlich bei besseren Wetter;). Lieben Dank für die schönen Tage!

  • Frans's apartment is 10 - 15min walk from the tram station. Bicycles were provided upon request to speed up the walking if needed.

    His apartment is rustic and quiet, prefect place away from city environment.

    He provides many types of tea for our consumption and he packaged the required information in different languages!

    A perfect stay in a quiet environment away from the city crowd!
