Houseboat
For a relaxing city break with a difference, hop on board this amazing houseboat. In the city center of Amsterdam, but just outside the big business. Five minutes away from the central station by tram. The Tante Piet is very bright and clean. The location describes it self the best like a village like style boaty street, it is a very green street and making a bonfire and BBQ is highly recommend and allowed. At night it is quiet for being right in the middel of the city, sleeping on board is an amazing experience. Only 15 minutes walking to the bubbling city centre, or 5 minutes by tram which is within 2 minutes walking distance. Imagine in summertime enjoying you breakfast in the sunny garden or on your deck terras (pictures soon to come). Or even make a bonfire in the middle of Amsterd...For a relaxing city break with a difference, hop on board this amazing houseboat. In the city center of Amsterdam, but just outside the big business.

We had a wonderful stay at Housboat Tante Piet in Ocotber 2022. We instantly felt at home in this lovely decorated houseboat. Thanks to the heating, the apartment was cosy and warm also in october. Thanks to the nearby tram, we could reach the centre easily though enjoying our private houseboat atmosphere at the water. The train did not disturb at all. Sietske was very nice and friendly, giving us worthful tips to make our stay even more special. We highly can recommend Tante Piet and definetly would love to come back! Thank you very much!

I stayed the houseboat for three nights with my husband and sister. It was so perfect for us. There are separate bedrooms for privacy but also lovely common space. The decor and special touches give it a great vibe - much more special than a flat or a hotel. Sitting on the deck in the evening was a dream and you get the feel for boat life on the water. Sietske is lovely. Super helpful without being intrusive and so friendly. She is my favorite airbnb host so far. Her boat is in a quieter part of the city so we were pleased to have a bit of distance from the busyness, but still have so much to enjoy within walking distance. We found a great place for breakfast nearby (Homeland Pension) with a wonderful patio where you can watch people swimming in the canal. For trips to the west side of the city, the tram is so close (less than 5 minute walk). The boat was super clean and had everything we needed - towels, hairdryers, coffee, tea. We had so much fun, a brilliant stay. I highly recommend staying with Sietske if you visit Amsterdam!

Our host, Sietske V. was so helpful with her prompt responses to my emailed questions before our trip. She recommended a great Indonesian restaurant for my daughter's bday. When we arrived, she stored our luggage so we could explore the city. The houseboat was tastefully decorated and very user friendly. We enjoyed coffee in the morning on the roof deck overlooking the water. The last night. we spent a lovely time drinking wine and chatting with Sietske. We loved the houseboat and having an owner who is so nice made it even better. I feel I have a friend in Amsterdam now!

Such a nice boat in an area just as pleasant. Sieske (brilliant hostess), welcomed us aboard and was always on the end of her phone if needed. The boat was set out so as we could socialise as a group or relax as a couple. Showers were nice and hot and the boat was really clean. Was nice to sit up on deck with friends and a BBQ is no problem at all with plenty of space on the riverside. Next time I visit Amsterdam, I will be hoping to book in back on the boat.

Super herzliche Begrüßung durch Sietske, die immer gute Tipps hat, perfekt Englisch spricht und superlocker ist. Das Hausboot ist super und in 2 Kabinen unterteilt. Vorne im Bug die größere Kabine mit großenm Doppelbett und mit extra Eingang die kleinere mit 2 Einzelbetten. Also auch ideal für Familien mit max 4 Personen oder für einen Trup mit Freunden. Super sauber, mit Liebe eingerichtet. Ich war schon 2x hier und es war einfach immer top. Die Lage ist ruhig und nur 2 S Bahn Stationen östlich vom Hauptbahnhof gelegen. Super um abzuschalten erst recht wenn man auf dem Deck auf seiner eigenen Terrasse sitzt und chillt. In Summe 5 Sterne. Es fehlt an nichts Mikrowelle, Handtücher, Geschirr, kleine Kochplatte, Kühlschrank, alles da. 5 von 5 Sternen und das zurecht!! Wir kommen wieder und das wohl noch öfters! We love Tante Piet!!

When we were planning our trip to Amsterdam, we decided to do something a little bit quirky and different, and what better way to have quirky holiday than to stay on a houseboat. Well what can I say, The houseboat is amazing, made even more special knowing the hard work, blood sweat and tears that have been poured into it from Sietske and Frank, to create something rather super and special. We was particularly lucky with some warm weather, so a Gin & Tonic or a Glass of Wine whilst waving at the passers by on the deck was a must (as the evening drew in, the oil lamps were lit, making it that even more special). The accommodation itself is compact (your on a boat remember), but perfectly adequate with all the mod cons we have come to expect. When we arrived, Sietske had ensured it was spotlessly clean, and there was a bottle of wine in the fridge (I think you can see there is a theme here), which was very welcome after a days travel. The Shower Room is great, with loads of room. All in all a wonderful stay on a wonderful House Boat with an even more wonderful host, of which we seriously cannot recommend enough. Chris & Steve

We wilden wel eens op een boot slapen, dus vrij spontaan een nacht geboekt. Dat ging allemaal heel makkelijk en de gastvrouw was net zo spontaan als onze actie. We waren erg onder de indruk van hoe de ruimte eruit zag, heel sfeervol ingericht, nog duidelijk een boot maar met het comfort van een huis. Een beetje bang voor het schommelen van een boot waren we wel, maar dat is helemaal niet het geval. Leuke details als het hergebruik van ijzeren stukken van de boot in de douche en kamer maakt deze plek uniek. Er liggen foto’s van hoe het schip eerst was, leuk om te zien. Het bed is goed, de douche is mooi, de gastvrouw is aardig, de plek ligt zo centraal dat je makkelijk een stadswandeling kan maken en in de keuken is genoeg aanwezig om je, in deze lochdown bezorgde maaltijd, gezellig aan tafel te eten. Kortom wij zijn fan.

About the neighbourhood
In walking distance of the Amsterdam Central train Station you find The Tante Piet. It is a lovely walk of 15 minutes along the water and all sorts of ships. The location describes it self the best like a village style boat community. It is a very green street and making a bonfire and BBQ is most appreciated and highly recommended. At night it is quiet, sleeping on board is an amazing experience. In walking distance is public transport and a supermarket and a very nice beach bar with good food.
