We really enjoyed our stay at volle man! Very lovely and clean rooms, nice and uncomplicated people and grear location near to center. Everything is made with love for details!

Tank you so much for these great days at your boat! Looking forward to visit you again!

I am just back from a lovely weekend in Amsterdam staying on the Volle Maan. It is a gem of a boat in a great location. Easy walking distance to Centraal station as well as the centre of Amsterdam! The accommodation is very clean and modern with access to great sized shower room. Nice touches like the Nespresso machine! The best part though is looking st life through the port holes and seeing the ducks swim by! Lovely deck area also to enjoy a glass of wine in the sun watching the world go by. In short a fab and unique place to stay! Hosts were very friendly and welcoming too! Thank you Michiel and Maroesja!

The Full Moon B and B has a superb location, very close to all the nice sights but located in a quiet and relaxed surrounding.

Lovely to sit on the deck of the boat and see all the boats pass.

The room looks very stylish and is very complete with kettle and nespresso-machine, nice beds and shower.

Very friendly host, we loved it very much and we definetly will come back.

Rhona - October 22, 2017

We stayed here at the beginning of October following a recommendation. The owners have changed very recently, but clearly nothing else has. Maroesja & Michiel were very welcoming and helpful. The apartment is beautiful and very comfortable. The breakfast basket was a great delight - slightly different every morning. We were given a list of recommended restaurants nearby and tried four - all excellent.

The boat is very quiet and peaceful, despite being only a 10 minute walk from a shopping area. We would definitely stay again, and I would recommend it unhesitatingly, particularly if you are looking for something different from an anonymous hotel room.

The hosts were fabulous for my wife and I on our honeymoon. She and her family were so accommodating and generous. The houseboat 'Full Moon' was exactly what we were looking for, in a great location, and couldn't be more perfect to explore Amsterdam.

Natalia - July 30, 2016

The boat is lovely and Pim and Maartje are very nice people. The boat is very well-located. Seating on the deck was very nice, the shower was really good, and the bed comfortable. I want to come back to Amsterdam and stay here again.

Julie - April 03, 2016

Our stay at the houseboat was absolutely perfect! Warm, clean, great host and hauge breakfast. The owners welcomed us late in the evening at arrival and took care of our luggage after check out due to our late departure. The houseboat was easy to find and just a short walk to the city centre. Really recommend this B&B to everyone!

Kathy - October 19, 2015

The houseboat full moon was beyond our expectations. The accommodations were lovely, very clean, bountiful breakfast basket each morning and close walking proximity to all the attractions and train station. Maartje was very welcoming and even arranged for taxi pickup to go to the airport. Can't wait to recommend the houseboat to friends. Thanks for making our trip very enjoyable.

Sophie - October 16, 2015

Superbe chambre qui correspond en tout point au descriptif fait dans l'annonce. Nous avons été très bien accueillis, l'endroit était calme et paisible, et le bateau magnifique. Emplacement permettant d'accéder à pied aux principaux coins à visiter dans le centre-ville (comptez un quart d'heure de marche en moyenne, mais c'est tellement joli !). Maatje et Pimm sont adorables et très serviables et vous donneront de judicieux conseils sur les restaurants avoisinants ! Le petit déjeuner varie en fonction des jours et est très copieux. A recommander les yeux fermés !

Shauna - August 04, 2015

This is one sexy houseboat! Living inside was like being in a James Bond movie. Eating the overflowing breakfast on the deck was fabulous. The location was ideal, conveniently around the way from Central Station, near the great neighborhoods of Harlaam & the Jordaan, and near to the tourist area of Amsterdam. Our hostess was friendly, helpful and generous. She guided us to bike rentals that made our stay all the more magical. Cycling alongside the canals and in Vondelpark was a dream. Amsterdam quickly became a favorite city of ours and Full Moon is a beautiful part of why. We can't wait to come back!

Caroline - July 18, 2015

This was by far the best and most special place I have ever stayed. I fell in love with the cute houseboat. I slept like a baby in the comfortable bed and it is wonderful to wake up and see the sun's refelections on the water through the cute round windows of this very beautiful and bright bnb. The breakfast was delicious and I felt very welcome. Thank you so much Maartje and Pim!

Sarah - April 20, 2015

Staying at the Volle Maan Houseboat was a delightful experience! We were greeted by our hosts with a welcoming smile and soon felt at home. The design of the boat is wonderful, the beds are so comfortable and the shower is brilliant! A lovely breakfast was prepared in the morning and left outside our door in a little basket which we ate on our own little part of the deck as we were lucky enough to have sunshine during our stay! The location of the boat is perfect - ten minutes walk from town with the feeling that you're miles away in a peaceful and pretty neighbourhood. Me and my friend loved our stay on the Volle Maan and would absolutely love to visit again. Thankyou for making us feel so welcome and for a lovely experience.

Frajo & Stephanie - April 06, 2015

3 Heerlijke dagen Amsterdam! Genoten van jullie houseboat, met volle maan, ontwaken met een heerlijk (paas)ontbijt en de stad herontdekt vanaf Realeneiland, 'n oase van rust temidden van het rumoer van de stad. Absolute aanrader!

Antoine - February 19, 2015

We really enjoyed our stay on the Full Moon! Beautiful boat, very charming, comfortable and clean ; peaceful neighborhood, very welcoming hosts, just perfect! On top of everything, the breakfasts were gorgeous! I highly recommend this place and look forward to coming back.

Benjamin & Justin - February 03, 2015

Beautiful place to stay! Very close to the city-centre, but the area the houseboat is in is very peacefull. You don't have the idea you're in a busy city.

The breakfast was good and plentiful. Because of the basket the breakfast is in you can decide for yourselve when to have breakfast, so after a night out you can also sleep late and than have your breakfast.

The houseboat itself is cosy, and offers all the comfort you need, a recommendation for everybody who likes to stay in Amsterdam in a non-standard location.

Karin en lucas - November 30, 2014

This place to stay in Amsterdam is perfect: acbeautiful area, cosy, clean, quiet but close to 'the places to be' and the hosts make you feel at home.
We had a very nice stay in the last days of november: it was cold and windy outside but warm en cosy in the boat.
We'd recommend The Full Moon to every couple looking for a romantic weekend.

Amy - October 31, 2014

Our hosts couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. First of all they sent us fool proof directions of various ways of getting to the house boat when we got there. Secondly, they went out of their way to accommodate our early arrival making it possible for us to check in before the allocated time. Thirdly, they sent us a very lengthy email of recommendations for restaurants and bars in the area which was very helpful.

The accommodation and facilities were idyllic. The setting of the boat was lovely. The minimalistic decor and cleanliness was top notch. The top of the range coffee machine, the beautiful breakfast brought to you every morning and the atmospheric mood lighting just topped it off.

The area was fine for us. It is a bit out of the way which means it's quiet and peaceful but you're only a short walk to a bustling trendy high street. The only thing location wise was that it is a bit further away from some of the tourist attractions so it wasn't always easy to go back and change before heading out for the evening (if you're doing everything on foot that is!).

I can't recommend this place enough!

maryke and ken - October 06, 2014

YOU SHOULD STAY THERE.

Jorge - September 06, 2014

We stayed at the Full Moon B&B Houseboat for two nights. It was sooo nice! It may be hard to believe but the Houseboat is even nicer than the fotos suggest. We went to Amsterdam by train and went on foot from the train station to the houseboat. It was only a relaxed 15 min. walk. The neighborhood is beautiful and very quiet even though it's so close to the city center. The Houseboat is very clean, tastefully furnished and had all the promised accessories. It's also much roomier than we expected. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Our hosts Maartje and Pim were very friendly, helpful, and flexible. If your looking for a nice place to stay in Amsterdam, I would definitely recommend the B&B Full Moon Houseboat.

Sam and Mark - September 03, 2014

What a wonderful experience it was to stay upon your boat. So peaceful and relaxing but only a 20 min walk into the hustle and bustle of Amsterdam. The breakfast was very nice a great selection and very good quality produce. We will certainly be staying again next time we are in Amsterdam and have recommended your lovely houseboat to all our family and friends. Many thanks for your welcome and hospitality.

Jan and Jessie - August 22, 2014

Our stay at the Full Moon house boat could not have been more perfect! We stayed there for 2 nights and enjoyed the cozy atmosphere. Since it was raining a lot we had the best place to wait until it blew over and so the rain didn't bother us the least. ;-) The breakfast is amazing and makes for a perfect beginning of your day. It's situated close to the center and easily accessible by bike. Parking is a little bit of a problem so our recommendation is to come by train or plane. Thank you guys for a perfect short trip to Amsterdam.

Patrice - July 18, 2014

The Amsterdam's dusk in a very special way...
Beautiful and quiet, this is definitely for a romantic trip, glamorous and trendy. We enjoyed the atypical feeling of a cocoon inside a labyrinth of water and streets. Our hosts were friendly and respectful of our privacy, not too far or too close, breakfast was perfect and delivered in a basket : having breakfast on the boat desk is just perfect before a visit day of the city. We probably come again for another romantic break and just invite everyone to try that "blue" experience on that boat.

Simone - June 16, 2014

A wonderful houseboat. The breakfast was tasty, the neighborhood very nice and quiet, the center very close and the hosts of the boat are really nice and lovely people :) It was a fantastic and unforgettable experience to stay at the Full Moon! I would recommend this accommodation to everyone

Carolyn and Mike - April 20, 2014

Volle Maan is the 'icing on the cake' for one's stay in Amsterdam. A unique experience - much better than the confines of a hotel room! How relaxing it was, to return to the houseboat after a day of frenetic sight-seeing! We sat on deck, in the quiet residential area, watching the bird-life and barges cruising by, as we sipped our glasses of wine. The accommodation is 'bijou 'and so cosy. The two local cafes/bistros were excellent and also convenient for dinner each evening. Returning, we 'slept like logs' in the really comfortable beds. Breakfast was plentiful and we couldn't wait to open our hamper each morning. The owners, Pim and Maartje were great hosts and exceptionally friendly and helpful. Would have no reservations at all in recommending Volle Maan (as long as you are able to negotiate the steps into the accommodation) to enhance your stay in Amsterdam. Book it and enjoy, as we did!

Jo - December 07, 2013

We had a lovely time in Amsterdam, whilst staying at the Full Moon. The breakfast lasted all day, fantastic service. We would very much like to come back soon!

From Singapore - November 10, 2013

Hello, my wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and it was a fantastic experience. The location is quiet, peaceful and the breakfast is great! It was indeed a unique experience for us since this was the first time that we stayed inside a boathouse. The room is neat and clean!

Juli - October 30, 2013

Thanks for making our Amsterdam time so wonderful. Great houseboat in a great neighborhood and great breakfast too. Thank you for a wonderful stay in your houseboat. We loved it! It was so nice to meet you!

Clemence & Georges - October 19, 2013

I love your houseboat. It's pretty, sweet, splendid. It's "super"! Thank you very much.

veronique zidi-aporeigah - October 04, 2013

My daughter and I really enjoyed staying at Volle Maan. The quiet location, yet close to Jordaan area; the quality of the room and facilities; the cleanliness, comfort, etc. The breakfast was of great quality. All was just great.

One small suggestion though: it would be nice to interact a bit more with the hosts. We did not see much of them during our stay.

Also, the wifi did not work in the room. But this is not really a big deal.

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay and would wish to return.

Thanks much!

Shona and Barry - September 17, 2013

We stayed here from 13 to 15 September, it's beautiful, comfortable and spotless. I was a bit worried about staying in a B&B as I like my privacy, but this is as private as you can get, breakfast was left in a hamper in the morning at the door; it's a self contained part of the boat and we were left to get on with it. It's not far at all from the city centre and a lovely walk down anyway...plenty cafes coffee shops and pubs on the way! Lovely owners, if we're back in Amsterdam would stay here again. Thank you!

Stephanie - September 14, 2013

Our stay at Volle Maan for two nights was delightful! Maartje and Pim are the sweetest hosts. The breakfast was delicious and was prepared with much thought. The boat is modern and very clean. The location is perfect - it is close to town and we even walked to the Van Gogh Museum from it! I would highly recommend to anyone, and will definitely stay again the next time I'm in Amsterdam.

Ralph and Carla Hoffman - December 16, 2012

We rented Volle Maan for a weekend in November. Maartje and Pim, the sympathetic owners, were very supporting and helpful before our stay, for instance suggesting places where to park our car.

The houseboat is a little gem in a very nice neighborhood, feeling like a small and safe village. The room has enough space for a couple, is furnished in a cozy way and all facilities are available to have a very comfortable stay.
The breakfast was very good and offered more than enough choice in the food.

Very recommended. We will come back!

Judith & Nick - September 17, 2012

We stayed on 'Full Moon' for a couple of nights last week, just wish it could have been longer.
Pim & Maartje made us very welcome, they have thought of everything to make the space very comfortable. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. The boat was spotlessly clean and well maintained.
The location is perfect, approx 10 mins walk from the centre of Amsterdam, in a quite residential area away from the hustle and bustle. I have already recommended the boat to several friends, and we will definatley return if we go back to Amsterdam.

Anuschka - April 11, 2012

The houseboat is one of the most elegant and classy places we have seen. The area is quiet and typical and one is close to the center or to bus and tram stations! It is a place to relax and recharge. Special thanks to you both for your fine morning visits too: thanks to the "breakfast-wallas" :-)

Marijke Amador-Drewes - August 10, 2011

VOLLE MAAN is a carefully and tastefully restored and refurbished early 19th century steamship, which once plied the seas as a cartographer. The ship is moored in the middle of a truly beautiful, quiet part of old Amsterdam, slightly off the beaten track. Your quarters will be the former engine room of the ship, which has undergone a complete transformation to a stylish and comfortable bedroom and bathroom, all done in pristine white. There is tiny adequately equipped kitchen with Nespresso machine, as well as a minibar, airconditioning; large wall mounted TV and some storage. Your young and gracious hosts will deliver breakfast. This is a cool and perfect base from which to explore everything Amsterdam has to offer;

What an incredible experience this has been for us. This is such a unique space and we feel blessed that we had the opportunity to spend time here. Peaceful, serene, modern, exciting, comfortable, exatic, quaint and best of all excellent customer service! You have both been such a pleasure to get to know, you both made this experience so great for us. We appreciate the extra effort and assistence along the way.

We had a wonderful time in Amsterdam, thanks to you and the miracle weather. You did indeed a great job, not only the decoration but the service also! Definitely our "pied a terre" in Amsterdam now.

Robbert Jan - August 06, 2011

Het was een feestje om op Volle Maan te gast te zijn. Sliep ik nu in een boot of in een kunstwerk? Het sliep in ieder geval heerlijk! Tot de volgende keer.

Marty et Thierry - March 18, 2011

Rust in het midden van de stad, een eend op zoek naar ...
Perfecte ontvangst en omgeving voor drie dagen Amsterdam. We schrijven ons alvast in voor de volgende keer. Qeul reve en blanc, tot snel!

Carina and Ronald - February 28, 2011

What a magical place! We enjoyed a great weekend in Amsterdam of which staying on your beautiful ship was one of the highlights. Thanks also for the inspiration we got from the wonderfull interior design. Happy to come back one day.

Sarah & Giles - February 15, 2011

I am so glad we choose to stay on your beautiful boat. It has been delightful. Great hosts, great boat, great city!

Farah - August 23, 2010

Very, very nice room. All was perfect!

L'accueil fut chaleureux, le cadre paisible et la chambre magnifique. Tout pour passer un sejour plus qu'agréable.
