House rules

As required by the City of Amsterdam, I need to register the names and addresses of my guests. Please help me to comply with this rule and send me your details while requesting or making a reservation.

Please respect the night rest of my dear neighbours and don't make use of the terrace after 23.00 pm. The neighbourhood is really quiet and my boat is close to other houseboats. That's why it's such a lovely place! Please keep that in mind while staying in my houseboat.
