A stay in our houseboat is an unforgettable experience. The Lucky Piper lies along the Zeeburgerpad, right near to the Funen windmill where microbrewery ‘het Ij’ is located in a pleasant, quiet neighbourhood. The brewery has a tasting room, open for beer sampling from Wednesday to Sunday. The houseboat lies on the edge of downtown Amsterdam. It is easily accessible by car or by public transit. Buses and trams run every ten minutes and the nearest stop is just a three minute walk from the Lucky Piper. The houseboat has a 5 x 5 m. deck streets-side, and a 9 x 3 m. deck on the water, a roof-top terrace is coming up. You can therefore choose for sun or shadow all day long. The houseboat dimensions are 16,5 x 4,5 m. There is one large bedroom with two beds, and one smaller bedroom with two beds. Two children’s beds can also be added to the large bedroom. There is a bathroom with a shower and sink and a room for the toilet. The boat has been designed to allow plenty of daylight to filter into every room. The living room and kitchen are combined. There is plenty of daylight. Both bedrooms and the living room each have television with 32 channels. The living room is also equipped with a full stereo (radio, DVD, CD). check for availability on our website.

The booking was made for the wrong month, my mistake. When we contacted Jan on arrival in Amsterdam we discovered the error. The Lucky Piper was only available for 2 nights not 3. Jan met us at the Lucky Piper, took us shopping to get provisions and to point out the local attractions. He under took to find us accommodation for the third night. Which he was able to do. He then arrived and helped us to relocate to another house boat for the third night reappeared on checkout and rang a cab for us. We are truly greatful The Lucky Piper is a wonderful experience. Over looking a pretty quite canal and just a short walk from the tram which you can catch in either direction to Joordaan or the City. We had a wonderful stay and can't recommend the Lucky Piper too highly. And as for the Host, his care, service and hospitality is beyong equal. Bob & Robin Unger, Brisbane Australia

Simply a magical stay. The accommodation was excellent, the location great, all contributing to an enjoyable Easter break. We will return for a longer stay. Thanks Jan, it was a pleasure to meet you. Larry & Jane (UK)

The owner Jan could not have been more wonderful or accomodating. Even though we arrived late in the evening he was waiting for us at the boat with romantic candles lit and everything perfect. Jan was so friendly and welcoming. The boat was beautiful, warm and spotless. I was travelling with my 2 young children and they loved feeding the swans off the boat's patio. The beds were so comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more.

I searched several websites for a houseboat for our fourth visit to Amsterdam. When I found this one, I made the assumption that I'd found a self-catering houseboat, forgetting this website is B&B! As I also asked the owner about where to find a good cafe for breakfast, it's possible that he assumed we didn't want any breakfast. There were basics like tea bags, filter papers for coffee (no coffee except instant) & sugar, also a bottle of wine, but no breakfasts. Boat was clean and tidy, lots of towels and endless hot water. Central heating worked very well. Lots of guide books and leaflets. Owner was friendly & very helpful about local shops and places to eat. He was also more than fair: when he found out at the end of our stay that the fourth person couldn't make it, he reduced the rent. I would stay there again.
