Houseboat description

This special stay on the water has a warm Finnish sauna that you can heat up yourself which is also easily turned in to a cozy living / chill room for two. The spa space also provide luxurious relax bed and a wonderful rain shower in the shape of a tree trunk. On the deck you can relax in the sun loungers or chill in the hammock when the weather is good. For the swimmers & watersport lovers there is a swimmingdeck with staircase. When the weather is not so good you can nestle yourself in a bathrobe on the lounge bed on the lower deck or lie-down on the king size bed & listen to the raindrops. 

This old fishing cutter received a complete transformation in 2020, now it's transformed into a beautiful wellness boat & baptized with the name 'Private houseboat + wellness in historic Amsterdam'. The zen interior was designed with the use of natural and sustainable materials being central to create a relaxed atmosphere. A nice detail is the starwatching roof above the dining table, so you don't have to go on deck to enjoy the starry sky.  

Additional plus is that it is also sustainable, the entire boat is self-sufficient and an ingenious osmosis system from Austria ensures that this filtered water is even drinkable. You can read in detail how they did this in the information folder upon arrival. Nice to know is that the wood in the boat is old sanded planks recycled from a cheese warehouses from Bodegraven and the entire boat is very well isolated and heated with central heating system during the coldest months.

How to get there

City Marina IJdok is 10 minutes walking away  from the back entrance of central Station Amsterdam, Interparking IJdok is just next door for gast who travel by car. 

About the area

This harbor is located directly on the IJ in the city center of Amsterdam, Within 5 minutes you can walk from the harbor via the cozy Haarlemmerstraat (named the nicest shopping street in the Netherlands) towards the Jordaan or past the central station towards the Red Light District.  Although the harbor is located in the heart of Amsterdam, Bickerseiland is unusually quiet.  A cozy historic village residential area and yet in the bustling city center.

    Awesome place to stay in Amsterdam

    My girlfriend and I loved Vivian's houseboat really much. We couldn't think of a better place to spend NYE in Amsterdam. The marina is perfectly located to explore Amsterdam by feet and the interior is just stunning. The bed is absolutely cozy and the spa is just amazing. It feels unreal experiencing something like that on your own houseboat. One of the best accommodations to stay as a couple to relax and enjoy Amsterdam too the fullest. Highly recommended- definitely coming back to this gem :)

    Romantic get away

    Our visit to Amsterdam in this romantic and beautiful housboat was great! There is so much love and detail to the boat and to the decoration. Even the cold and wet days in January we've spend strolling through this beautiful city, we could warm up nicely in the private sauna. Vivian was a great host and a lovely person.
