“superb hosts, spotlessly clean room, beautifully decorated barge, yummy breakast, highly recommend”
Reviewed 27 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Beautiful city; not overcrowded; bikes rule, fit and friendly and most helpful people, well run city, Bit scary that mopeds share same cycle path as cyclists (my only complaint as nearly run over twice by mopeds speeding past me on my bike). Will definitely visit again. lovely prosecco and bics on arrival(twice!) Lyn & Bruce from South of UK

“chill out on the waves”

Hard to know where to start, the boat was immaculate designer, spacious luxury as per the photos...the location was great..views of water and boats and s peaceful yet only a few minutes from tram to zoo gardens or centre of town, or a 10 minute cycle ride to the central station so easy to orient yourself...to go to and fro the airport or travel more widely in Holland by train. What really made it though was the thoughtful hospitality of Theo and,Sylvia..it was their vision that made the boat but they share it happily. They are completely seperate...more like adjoining house so are never intrusive, a tiny sound in the morning and like a miracle a candlelit breakfast is ready in the kitchen diner for guests only under the potholes, warm, fresh and tasty to suit all tastes, fruit, meats, cheese, fresh breads and a little treat each day like French toast with fruit or bircher muesli. They rented us bikes and getting around in them really made the trip and also kept us,warmer as it was sunny but very cold...would highly recommend as drivers are fewer than bikes and mega cautious and respectful of them too so basically you have right of way! It means you can see far more, and really get the layout. On our final day we booked online for entry to the van Gogh museum...always a must see and going early morning means you beat the crowds. You can leave any size bags,easily at the central station left luggage lockers making it easy to travel on to the airport afterwards..we left them there while we were at the museum. It was a relaxed trip and we would go back like a shot anytime of year...the cold weather just gave us excuses to keep stopping for hot chocolates or beers. Thanks for a welcoming luxurious stay in your beautiful boat, Theo and Sylvia x

“Great location, friendly and helpful owners. Just brilliant!”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Situated on the shore of a residential area to the East of Centraal this is a brilliantly restored ship. You can watch big container ships passing by in the distance and leisure craft pass by from the deck. Warm rolls and hot coffee for breakfast - lovely. The ship is quite large so the owners are nearby but the guest area is very private. The owners also do cycle hire which is super convenient - science park is an easy 20 minute cycle.

“An oasis of calm”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I cannot recommend de Dageraad highly enough, the ship itself is immaculate and the accommodation is well appointed with nice comfortable beds,and good facilities.
Sylvia and Theo offer a warm welcome and it was very nice meeting them, they live in the stern section of the ship which is close enough to be helpful but definitely not intrusive.

The ship provides an oasis of calm 15 minuets tram ride away from the crowds and madness of Central Station, the residential area around the ship is is extremely quiet and peaceful, the loudest things being the ducks and the occasional Hello from passing small boats.
The only small thing i would do to improve the accommodation would be to put some comfortable lounging chairs on deck for chilling out.

If you are thinking of booking de Dageraad, you wont be disappointed !
