Little sacred space.

Amazing place to stay. Felt like our own little sacred space. Beautiful scenery, lovely neighbours (including friendly cats). Very clean, and homely and rustic feel. Otto was lovely and very informative but gave us space so it felt as if we had our own boat. We also loved visiting the peer at night about five minutes walk from the boat. Lovely little cafe literally at the front of the boat too for drinks and food, quiet and friendly vibe. Would 100% recommend and we will be back! See you again soon Reussi❤️

Lovely place

What a lovely place! Otto's boat is fantastic - beautifully decorated with lots great features. It has all the facilities you could possibly need, and was well stocked with wood for the fire, clean towels, and there were plenty of bits in the kitchen for us to make drinks, have breakfast etc. It's in a great position - a quiet residential area, but was within easy reach of the city centre - the bus stop is just 2 mins walk away, while you can catch a tram from the stop which is less than 10 mins walk. Both will take approx 15 mins to get to central station or the museum areas. Overall, we would highly recommend "Reussi".

Wow! What a houseboat!! It's a bit outside the city center (20 min with bus from centraal stration) but definetly worth staying there. It's a complete accomodation with bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathroom - you'll find everything you need there. It's clean and neat and super comfy and cosy. Otto answered all messages within short time and made us feel like home, even though it was just for one night. I can highly recommend staying at Otto's houseboat!

What a fantastic find this is. Otto is the perfect host. Nothing is to much trouble for him ( I was really hot when we arrived and he travelled to the local supermarket to buy some beer for me. Talk about over and above!!) The accommodation is quirky and fun. I don't think I have ever felt more at home thatI did here. The bed is comfortable, the lounge room is surprisingly spacious and the kitchen is small but extremely functional. The city bus is only a short walk away and only takes about 15 mins to Centraal Station. Shops are only a short walk or ride away. (Otto offers bikes for your use at a very reasonable rate). Otto makes sure that every base is covered, Hair dryer, coffee machine, TV (with netflix), plenty of towels, Various condiments in the kitchen, etc etc. I Highly recommend Ottos accommodation. We had a fantastic stay. Thanks for reading my adulations!

What a fantastic boathouse. Otto is the perfect host, offering good communication, advice and hands on help with the wood burner! (We aren't very good at starting real fires!) Great location, easy to get to on public transport and a beautiful little boathouse with everything you might need. Thanks for a lovely weekend, we will definitely be back! Xx

Great stay

We had a great stay on Otto's lovely boat. It was a home from home with everything you should need. There were many little touches (such as fresh tulips) to make us feel very welcome. The boat is an unusual way of staying in Amsterdam and added a new dimention to the city. As stated within the advert but to reiterate - the boat is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues due to the access (steep steps) and raised bed. It was absolutely fine for us but wouldn't be if we had any issues. A really great stay, thank you Otto for making it a great place to visit.

Sehr zu empfehlen.

Ottos Unterkunft rundete unseren Kurztrip nach Amsterdam komplett ab. Die Kommunikation im Vorfeld war sehr freundlich und unkompliziert. Die Unterkunft ist genauso wie auf den Bildern gezeigt. Wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt. Alles ist sehr sauber gewesen und der Anblick der Zutaten für ein Frühstück in der Küche hat uns sofort das Gefühl gegeben, willkommen zu sein. Auch die geschriebene Nachricht an der Tür war sehr nett gemacht. Diese Unterkunft ist sehr zu empfehlen.
