"True houseboat hospitality!"

As an expat in Amsterdam, I will send all my out-of-town guests to De Dageraad from now on. I recently had to find space for visiting family, who wanted to enjoy an "authentic" Dutch experience, but something a bit different from the standard options in the crowded city center. I thought a houseboat with private deck and views over open water could do the trick. As we booked both rooms, we had the whole guest area to ourselves, which made it the perfect home-away-from-home [...].

"True houseboat hospitality!"

[...]Each evening, we had pre-dinner cocktails (which we had the freedom to be able to make ourselves, thanks to a separate kitchen at the guests' disposal) on our own little terrace before heading off for dinner. The tram connection to the center was just a short walk away, but we opted for a quick taxi. My family loved being able to scoot into the city within minutes for sightseeing or dinner, while still being able to retreat to the boat for an undisturbed night's sleep. The breakfast was also quite a spread, much better than anything you'd find in a local cafe. Theo and Sylvia, the hosts, have also got to be about the nicest people in Holland and absolutely bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed. Truly a level of hospitality and genuine friendliness you don't often encounter in Amsterdam. This B&B is one for the list - it's a gem!

True B&B houseboat hospitality in Amsterdam!

"Found by chance"

"We found this place by chance and it was a fantastic choice. The boat's location is awesome. On the one hand you can escape there from all hustle and bustle of Amsterdam, on the other hand, getting to the city center is very easy ( short walk to tram stop- 10 minutes and by tram -7 minutes)."

"This really is five star, immaculately clean, simple yet stylish decor"

[...]Steps down into the boat are steep yet sterdy but up on deck beautiful views, docked at the end of the dock views over the water is brilliant excellent place for coffee or breakfast. bikes available could be useful to nip to the shops good supermarkets only 5 min walk away. Easy to make a nice picnic to take into the centre for a picnic in parks a nice idea. The tram stop is also 5 min away Theo explains everything so helpful even picked us up so friendly and welcoming lovely little dog. Overall it's a Brilliant place to stay and I'm sure we will come back. Top tips park and ride at zeeburg is brilliant and close, always pre book Anne Frank house and Van G museum pre plan your trip and try Bocas Dutch tapas near Anne Frank house x happy customer x
