“Perfect, 10/10 would stay again!”

Stayed here in December with three friends and we couldn't have asked for more! The surrounding area is very quiet yet only a 5-10 minute walk into the centre. The inside has been done very well, clean, modern and well equipped. In addition the owner - Jennie Yip - was extremely friendly and helpful, allowing us to check-in early and check-out late (as there were no other bookings).

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed staying here and thought it was very good value for money; would definitely recommend!

“Perfect place for us”
Reviewed 16 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

I went on a short city break with 2 female friends. We thought it would be lovely to stay on a houseboat and it was! Jennie met us as soon as we arrived and the place was just like it looks in the pictures. It was very cold outside, but the inside was very warm and cosy!

My friends slept in the room and i was in the sofa bed - very large and comfortable! We ate out most evenings even though there are cooking facilities.

I would definitely recommend it as a convenient and lovely place to stay. Walking distance a variety of places!

“Great location and stay!”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This houseboat is located near the centre of Amsterdam, and is the perfect location for exploring the city. The boat is comfortable, clean, well kempt, and we would highly recommend it. Jenny, the owner, is welcoming and very helpful. The boat is in a quiet, but yet central area, and we always had a great nights sleep. Mornings brought floods of beautiful sunshine into the boat while we ate breakfast and fed the swans and ducks. We especially liked the swans as they tapped on the windows, encouraging us to feed them. This is an ideal place to relax and unwind, and we would definitely stay again.

“Best Place to Stay in the City!”
Reviewed 26 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Staying at the Oasis Houseboat was the cherry on top of a great trip to Amsterdam. The house was nestled right in city center but it was so peaceful and relaxing. Tons of shopping and restaurants just steps from the door. Waving as tour boats went by; we were the envy of all! The house was clean, tidy and had everything we needed. The beds were comfy and the shower hot. We had a blast feeding the ducks too.

Jennie, the owner, was amazing and helpful as well! She was an absolute delight to work with. She was a source of great knowledge and her love for the city was easy to see. If (and when!) I go back to Amsterdam, Oasis Houseboat will be my first choice to stay.

“A great find!”
Reviewed 21 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

My husband and I here for 2 nights. Brillant location near to everything but very quiet. The boat had everything we needed even a Jacuzzi bath. We loved feeding the ducks and swans and saying hello to people going past on thier boats. The owner Jenny is very helpful and let us check in early. We would definitely stay here again.
