What your guests will love about your home
My large houseboat is on the Westerdok in the center of Amsterdam. It’s located on a large body of water (tributary of the IJsselmeer); 4 rooms including ADSL internet, cable TV, DVD and CD players, a music studio with my grand piano, sundeck, and all utilities provided. Nice open view over the Westerdok.. Close to the Central Station and all shopping facilities. Also just across from the Jordaan which is considered the most colorful part of Amsterdam.. all kinds of quaint shops and great restaurants, traditional architecture, Ann Frank House, etc. Please Note: For the most part I'm not interested in exchanges or for guest points of only 2 or 3 days! I do not answer requests for this.. Usually I'm only interested in home exchanges or for guest points of at least about a week to 2 weeks or longer, and I'm mostly interested in exchanges in summer or to warm weather places. Also please note: This is an authentic, antique Amsterdam houseboat, it's not the Hilton. I now have a great lady to clean the boat regularly, so any problems about this from any guests in the past--it's over! Enjoy the boat in one of the nicest locations in Amsterdam!
What your guests will love about your neighborhood
Amsterdam is very modern and cosmopolitan, yet without the stress of most large cities. Life and activities can be at an easy, self directed pace. It's nice that nothing or no one is pushing you to do anything (unless of course you're stuck in some big, impersonal corporation with all kinds of rules and deadlines, etc.) You can also go anywhere on a bicycle without the hastle of parking or traffic.
