Houseboat summary

'Rosita' is a comfortable and cosy former fishing cutter transformed into a yacht with all modern amenities.

Houseboat description

'Rosita' is a 12m long and 4m wide former fishing cutter, transformed into a very comfortable and cosy yacht with central heating, hot and cold running water, shower and toilet.

In the cabin you'll find a double bed (2m x 1.4m) and a single bed (2m x 90cm), a seating area with a table, television, a kitchen with a sink, cutlery, microwave and coffee machine.

However, the cooking stove cannot be used because of regulations in Amsterdam. There is a separate wheelhouse, where smoking is allowed. On the aft deck there is a small terrace with chairs and a table. Even with very cold weather the boat is warm and comfy inside.

The cutter is reached by crossing the roof of the owner's houseboat. The boat will be fully yours, from bow to stern, thus you will have a lot of privacy on board. The maximum number of guests is 2. Children and pets are not allowed. This boat is not fit for obese or otherwise infirm people because of the steps leading to the boat and into the cabin. Also know that this boat is not meant for drunk or cannabis crazed youngsters. Having a good time: yes! Smoking a joint, no problem! Having a party: no! If this doesn't scare you off, you are most welcome aboard and I will be at your service with suggestions what to do and where to go in this beautiful city.

About the area

Rosita is moored in a quiet part and beautiful of the old centre of Amsterdam, overlooking the Prinsengracht. The famous 'Jordaan' area is right here too, with its 400 year old houses. Also the best market in Amsterdam, the 'Noordermarkt', open every Saturday and Monday, is right next door. The nearest shopping street, 'Haarlemmerdijk' is known for its liveliness and cosy little shops and restaurants.

    Cozy stay Show original

    Living on this cozy boat made our Amsterdam trip something special. The central location allows everything to be reached on foot. Many thanks to the nice host Friedrich.

    Very central and still quiet Show original

    We had a lovely week in Amsterdam. From the boat you are in the middle of the city center in 5 minutes - and yet it is a nice quiet retreat. We came by train - the proximity to the train station is ideal. Very small and cute - but quite sufficient for 2 people.

    Lovely stay

    Such a lovely stay, and it’s in the center of everything. The only thing I’d have to say is, be careful of the rocking of the boat. I’ve had a troubling and nauseating travel so far, so the boat rocking wasn’t ideal but eventually it rocked me to sleep :)

    Unique experience

    Unique boat accommodation in the middle of Amsterdam. Comfortable and in an excellent location. Friedrich is an excellent host, warm and friendly with great communication. We had such a great time exploring from ‘Rosita’ and would love to return some day. ‘Rosita’ is great, Friedrich is great, and Amsterdam is great!
