Houseboat description

The perfect place to relax after a busy day of sightseeing or even work! Our ship was originally built to transport cement powder in bulk all across the Netherlands, particularly through the Amstel River in the city of Amsterdam. After a two-year renovation, we converted the former cargo space into a spacious luxury home for ourselves and a beautiful luxury bed and breakfast! The bed and breakfast is situated in the front part of the ship and covers the whole front-side tank, a perfect place with a beautiful view over the lake.

The bed and breakfast features a sauna, bar with dishwasher and fridge, electrically adjustable beds, and Apple TV with Netflix and a projector. There are multiple take-away and delivery restaurants around the corner, including American, Surinamese, Indonesian, Thai, Italian, and Dutch foods. Please note that the B&B is NOT equipped with cooking facilities.

On the side, we have a small motorboat for rent, which you can take out for a ride on the lake! In the summer, of course, a swim is possible as well.

On request, a luxury type 2-person airbed can be put in place for a maximum of two additional guests or children; additional charges apply. A baby bed is available as well for free (please let us know in advance, so we can have everything set up upon your arrival).

Please bear in mind that we adhere to all rules and regulations to combat the coronavirus, including more intense cleaning of the place, and we do not allow visitors on board for our guests.

    Spacious, comfortable, and incredibly unique

    Lianne and Jeroen were amazing hosts! The houseboat is spacious, comfortable, and incredibly unique. The tram is a short walk and we were able to get into the city center easily. We loved coming back to watch movies on the projector and enjoy the sauna after a long day of exploring the city.
    Thank you for your hospitality, Lianne and Jeroen. We hope to return in the future! 😀

    Very cozy, and peace and quiet. Can definitely recommend it instead of a hotel room!

    The houseboat is an absolute experience in itself

    Honestly, I cannot recommend Lianne and her B&B enough. Not only do you you find yourself a gracious, thoughtful host who goes above & beyond - the houseboat is an absolute experience in itself. You'd be mad not to stay! Thank you for a wonderful holiday Lianne, we loved it 😊
