Reviews of this property
We really loved this houseboat!! It was really comfortable and the design was awsome! And the bed was sooo cozy. The view is so awsome too. The way from the houseboat to the city wasn't long- 20minutes and its so easy to get there you only have to walk a bit and then take line 26 and 4 stations later you are in the Centre. The only deficit is that you can't lock the front door you can only lock the sleeping room. We definitly had a good time and definitly would come back !
The day on the houseboat of Liesbeth and George were wonderful despite the mixed weather. Even though it was a bit chilly at night, we can not really complain about it, because we were able to work with the space heaters. The toilet, for which you had to briefly out, was not a problem for us.
Round the facilities and the atmosphere on the houseboat incomparable and presented at our trip to Amsterdam an absolute added value there.
Die Tage auf dem Hausboot von Liesbeth und Georg waren trotz des durchwachsenen Wetters wundervoll. Auch wenn es in der Nacht etwas frisch wurde, können wir uns darüber eigentlich nicht beklagen, da wir mit den Heizlüftern gegenarbeiten konnten. Die Toilette, für welche man kurz nach draußen musste, war für uns kein Problem.
Rundum ist die Ausstattung und die Atmosphäre auf dem Hausboot unvergleichlich und stellte bei unserem Ausflug nach Amsterdam einen absoluten Mehrwert da.
Clean, nice and very cozy. Perfect place to relax. I can only recommend, our stay was very pleasant.
The houseboat met our expectations. We had a very nice, romantic stay and return you back to Amsterdam and love again the houseboat by Liesbeth. Bike hire along the dyke, as described in the documentation on the houseboat, it no longer exists unfortunately. Therefore, a loan to the Central Station is recommended. At the outdoor toilet you get used to quickly. This we found not so bad, because some adventures that occur during a houseboat. Nevertheless, the Hasboot is only pleasant ambient temperatures, as the boat is warmed by heaters, the night can not be operated and the boat very quickly cools overnight. In sum, however, a great stay with very friendly hosts!
Das Hausboot erfüllte unsere Erwartungen. Wir hatten hier einen sehr schönen, romantischen Aufenthalt und kehren gerne nach Amsterdam und gerne auch wieder das Hausboot von Liesbeth zurück. Den Fahrradverleih entlang des Deichs, wie in den Unterlagen auf dem Hausboot beschrieben, gibt es leider nicht mehr. Daher ist eine Ausleihe an der Central Station empfohlen. An das Außen-WC gewöhnt man sich schnell. Dies fanden wir auch nicht so schlimm, da etwas Abenteuer zu einem Hausboot dazugehört. Nichtsdestotrotz eignet sich das Hasboot nur bei angenehmen Außentemperaturen, da das Boot per Heizlüfter gewärmt wird, die Nachts nicht betrieben werden können und sich das Boot sehr schnell über Nacht abkühlt. In Summe allerdings ein gelungener Aufenthalt, mit sehr freundlichen Gastgebern!
The boathouse itself is identical to what is pictured. It was clean, bright and quite comfortable. The friendly boat cat was an added delight, very sweet and accepting of chin rubs. The location is quiet-ish, the only noise is from the highway which is visible from the left windows, but it wasn't at all an issue. Walk across the bridge in 15 min and take 26 tram into Amsterdam (10 min). The Land Market is a short walk and an absolutely fantastic place to grab something to cook on the boat, or eat in-as there is a restaurant in store. The toilet was just fine, I mean it's a toilet after all. Other than it being a bit spooky and chilly at night when nature calls, it was perfectly acceptable. The bed is quite comfortable as well.
The only complaint (which turned out to be a good thing) was the absence of Wifi. George said we could pick up their Wifi signal and get online, but alas we could not. Left more time to talk and watch a few of the great dvd's that are included. Choosing the boathouse over a traditional hotel turned out to be an excellent choice.
George and Liesbeth were good hosts, as after the initial introductions we neither heard nor saw them, although they were in their respected boathouse less than 5 feet away. I would recommend this place for couples and maybe an older child as it could be a bit dangerous for small children.
We are American, but currently residing in the UK.

End of October 2014, we were with our 13 year old daughter for two nights on the boat to host and enjoyed it in every respect. Good for heating, hot water quickly, also to the public transport network (fast tram after crossing the Red Bridge) well by foot.
And yes, the beltway and the road bridge are close (the boat is between them) - but takes a back seat. The view over the water through the clear window at night on a lighted waterfront opposite is great and compensates all for it.
Because in a report by spinning the speech was - my wife is arachnophob but seen such animals we have not a single.
The hosts are friendly and approachable, but discreetly - as you'd expect. We recommend the boat explicitly!

Ende Oktober 2014 waren wir mit unserer 13-jährigen Tochter für zwei Nächte auf dem Boot zu Gast und haben es in jeder Hinsicht genossen. Gut zu beheizen, schnell warmes Wasser, die öffentlichen Verkehrsmittel (schnelle Trambahn nach Überquerung der roten Brücke) auch per Fuß gut zu erreichen.
Und ja, der Autobahnring und die Autobrücke sind nahe (das Boot liegt zwischen beiden) – tritt aber in den Hintergrund. Die Aussicht über das Wasser durch die lichten Fenster, abends auf ein erleuchtetes Ufer gegenüber, ist großartig und entschädigt allemal dafür.
Weil in einem Bericht von Spinnen die Rede war – meine Frau ist arachnophob, aber derartige Tiere gesehen haben wir kein einziges.
Die Gastgeber freundlich und zugänglich, aber diskret – wie man es sich wünscht. Wir empfehlen das Boot ausdrücklich!

Our stay in Amsterdam on Liesbeth´s boat was a beautiful experience. People like us, coming from the country side, are not used to live on the water, to sleep in a bed that is moving at night! Nevertheless we loved our stay there very much. Liesbeth and George are extremely lovely people - we found food in the fridge for breakfast, we had fresh flowers on the table and we have got any help we have asked for. So we can recommend such a stay there for everybody, even when the weather is as terrible as we had it. Kind regards Marion Katzenberger + Friedbert Holz
Again at any time. A lot of flair and the photos say everything ;)
we were very satisfied.
Jederzeit wieder. Viel Flair und die Fotos sagen ja alles ;)
wir waren sehr zufrieden.
We spent three days in that beautiful house and it was an amazing experience! The house wasn't completely yet, we were the first guests of the season so they were still doing some work in. For example the pomp of the shower didn't work yet, there wasn't hot water, but luckily George and Lisabeth invited us to have a shower on their boat. I think that in a few weeks that boathouse will be perfect, it just needs some little work, but in the complex is really, really amazing. George and Lisabeth were very kind, they also brought us a bottle of wine for apologies for the shower problem! I absolutely suggest to stay in that boathouse, it will be an incredible experience.
