Wir verbrachten 1 Woche auf dem schönen Hausboot Trijntje in der Prinsengracht in Amsterdam. Das Hausboot ist praktisch möbliert, die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man benötigt. Besonders faszinierend ist der Blütenteppich auf dem Dach des Bootes, ein Tummelplatz für Insekten aller Art. Mark und Olaf sind freundliche Gastgeber, die sich um alles Notwendige kümmern!

For years, my husband and I have wanted to stay on a houseboat in Amsterdam. We searched and planned and researched some more and finally chose Mark and Olaf’s Houseboat Trijntje. Fortunately, it was available because it was the perfect choice for us. We loved sitting on the deck with our beer watching the boats go by, it was the highlight of our time in Amsterdam. Mark and Olaf are so kind and have thought of everything-every convenience you could want is supplied for you. We highly recommend you stay here while in Amsterdam-it was an awesome experience for us!

Hosts Mark and Olaf have created a home away from home with a real difference, providing everything you need to relax and feel part of the Amsterdam vibe. Beautifully fitted out, the canal boat is snug yet surprisingly spacious and really feels like home. Located in the heart of the old city, you can walk everywhere - but you don't have to walk far for great cafes, restaurants and the city sights. As you relax on the rear deck or lean out the window over the canal, you'll be the envy of those in boats passing by. We'll never stay in a hotel in Amsterdam again - we're sold on canal boat life now!

The best way to spend few days in Amsterdam is on a houseboat. And a perfect example is the houseboat Trijntje. Mark the owner made the booking, welcome and our stay in general very comfortable and easy. I am sure we will be back.

We loved our stay on Houseboat Trijntje so much, we would like to stay there again next time we come to Amsterdam. The location is so central and easily walkable to so many areas of the city center. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and the ability to pop around the corner in the morning for coffee, fruit, bagels, pastries, and enjoy a nice peaceful breakfast on the boat. Also, we discovered some of the city's best food just a few feet away at John Dory, where we enjoyed an incredible 5-course meal. Everything in the boat was very tidy and we slept like babies each night. The canal waters are so peaceful, just flat as glass in the morning, and waking up there was a great way to spend a day. We were blessed with a sunny afternoon our first day and lounging on the deck chairs while sipping some wine was easily the highlight of our entire time in Amsterdam. Mark was a great host, gave very helpful instructions, and was very responsive when we had an issue - our fault - and working out a solution. I would recommend the houseboat to anyone looking for an authentic experience of living along the canals of Amsterdam.

Booking with Mark was simple and convenient and he was great upon arrival too. The Houseboat is really nice with everything you need as well as a great array of tea-light candles dotted around for when you want to wind down in the evening after a day exploring this beautiful and diverse city. Our favorite thing was sitting on the deck having a beer, a sleep and an occasional smoke whilst giving a little wave to many of the boats that went by. This location is superb and we will be 100% returning to do it all again.

The location was perfect - short tram ride from Central Station, but on a quiet street. Walking distance to everything we wanted to see and do. Comfortable interior with plenty of room for the three adults in our group, and a lovely deck to sit and watch the world go by. Mark was an excellent host and was quick to respond. I would definitely stay again.

We had a fabulous time on Mark's houseboat. We booked for 3 nights in early May. Mark was very helpful and the area of Amsterdam was perfect for the 3 of us. Thanks again. Ellen Barb and Anna

What could be better when in Amsterdam than to stay on a canal boat ? Mark and Olaf met us on arrival and showed us around the boat. They made it clear that we could contact them if we had any issues (we did not). The boat is in a central location and it was easy to get around the city from there. Local stores and restaurants were just around the corner. We enjoyed have a glass of wine at the end of the day out on the bow deck and just watching people sail past us. We were "on the tour" as a number of tour boats came past us. We would certainly stay here again !
