Amsterdam boathouse recommendation please

Hello there, I'll be travelling to Amsterdam in mid July for three nights and would like the experience of staying in a boathouse. There will be three of us and a 16mth old toddler and we would prefer to reserve a boathouse to ourselves. Can anyone give us some recommendations please. Looking for a clean boathouse in a good location.

Will there however be a mosquito problem in July ?

Cheers,

Stephie

I would suggest you use Google and search on "Houseboat Rental Amsterdam" or "Houseboats Amsterdam" and you will get loads of choices. I would also suggest you get a good map of the city so that you can plot where each boat is located. You will probably want to stay in the canal ring (more central to things) in a more residential area, rather than near, let's say, the Heineken Experience area on the Amstel, which is noisier and more commercial.

Mosquitos could be a problem if the weather is particularly warm and the air is humid. However, I'm told that some boats have screens in the windows (ask) or that you could bring a net for your bed and some repellant.

Thanks for your input Sacha.

I had a look at City Mundo website as they seem to be the only ones that accept just three nights booking. I like the look of boat L10710 which is located near the Jordaan. Anyone stayed at this boat before with any feedback to give me please

Cheers !
