This houseboat was the highlight of our trip to Amsterdam! I feel as though the pictures do not do it justice. This houseboat was so comfortable and beautiful. My husband and I spent 3 nights here and wish we had stayed a week! We will absolutely be staying here again if we venture back to Amsterdam.

Absolutely stunning design! How many times have you spent New Year's Eve on a houseboat with an amazing fireworks show from the comfort of your own home ? For us it is #1 ! A short walk from countless restaurants and shops, we discovered a new neighborhood every day. The best way to start the new year... We will definitely be booking again if available.

We spent 3 nights on your wonderful boat. So peaceful. Complete escapism.Great feeling of light and space with groovy technology. Easy walking distance into the centre of Amsterdam. Would recommend "Bagel and Beans" for delicious breakfasts. Many thanks for your kindness and hospitality (beers,wine and good koffee!) We will definately return xx

Defenitely the best place to stay in Amsterdam! Dieter

We were met by Jasper's friend Peter who lives next door (boat). Peter explained the operating of the boats many features, lights, heating, fireplace, TV, stove, dishwasher, washer/dryer.

Jaspar's boat is a work of art. It has wonderful clear simple lines and smooth curves, it is well constructed with fine materials. You will take photos of it to make your friends realize that you have good taste (and perhaps make them jealous.).

There is a steep set of stairs from the top cabin to the living and bed room below. We are 80 years old and found it possible but did it carefully.

The boat is filled with quality cook and flatware. A coffee machine and instant boiling water from the tap make breakfast easy (there is a good bakery nearby.)

The street is quiet and peaceful.

This is the place for a couple to make a committment and have wonderful memories of it.

Peter, Jasper's neighbor, was very inviting. I came on a later flight and he was flexible, meeting me at the boat to give me the keys and walk me through all the wonderful features of the boat.The neighborhood is perfect, quiet but still very close to lots of the shops and museums.The boathouse itself is stunning and exactly like the pictures. I would absolutely stay again.

Absolutely the place to stay if you are visiting Amsterdam. In a beautiful, quiet neighborhood, but not so far from the city center that you feel removed from all of the action. The boat itself is high-end all around, and the pictures here do not compare to the real deal. The guidebook left by Jasper the host has great information and suggestions (Pata Negra was awesome) to help make the most of your time in this amazing city. Just a top-notch rental, and would definitely book again if back in Amsterdam.

Paul - September

The Design Boathouse exceeded my expectations on every level. The pictures are accurate, the boat is a work of art and is in a quiet area but still very central and convenient to all the fun. The furnishings are comfortable, the music system worked great, the WiFi was fast and reliable. I look forward to staying here again in the future. Highly recommended!

The boat was a fantastic way to start our stay in Amsterdam! It was easy to find and get in. It's in a great location that was convenient to some great restaurants. Very walkable or bikeable to points of interest. The boat itself is awesome, even better than we imagined it would be when reading the listing. The living room is extremely comfortable and an great place to relax. We had breakfast on the upper deck everyday, and watched the ducks and occasional boats go by. The bedroom is perfect with the shower at the foot of the bed and the skylight right above you. Even the bathroom with it's living walls was unique and fun. Stay here!

Me and my boyfriend stayed for a week on the boat. 

It was amazing and we got the full amsterdam experience that was intendet by renting the boat.

We wanted a different holiday and we got that.

To cook and eat on the boat, to sit on the deck drinking coffie in the morning was a great start to the day. The neighbourhood is very quiet even though it is close to everything. There are many cool shops near by for both eating and shopping and its close to the everyday marked.

We could never imagine to go back to amsterdam again without booking this boat again.

Its addictive ;-)


Lee - July

We were delighted to get an opportunity before our departure to meet our host, Jasper, who lives out of town and with whom our booking was set up by our son as a surprise. Our son was thrilled with his choice for us even before we showed up to validate his selection; imagine our joy when we discovered this lovely boat and accommodation! The location is wonderful: far from the "madding crowds" of tourists at this time of year but with convenient access to everything via public transportation or just walking. The boat interior is sleek, modern and very "electronic"! It was a perfect place on hot days when the open floor plan and skylights enabled cooling air flow. Neighbor Peter was most welcoming and helpful.

Maud - June

Their is just one word for this boat: HEAVEN!!! We will definately book it again when we will return to Amsterdam.

Patty - May

Hello Jasper and Eva. We enjoyed our days on your houseboat in a wonderful green environment. The boat looks fantastic, clean, full of modern gadgets and radiates charm. It,s a great luxury to have such a boat! 

Fine also that the boat is so close to the citycenter , everything is to do within walkingdistance. 
And with caring neighbor Peter the whole picture is complete. 
We will definitely come back and recommend your houseboat to our friends. 
Thankx for the bottle of wine by arrival! 
Dear greetings, Wim and Patty
