You will stay in the former captain's house. I live at the back of the boat. You have your own entrance to the houseboat. The authentic room offers a phenomenal view over the canal and the adjacent bathroom has been renovated. There is a sink and small refrigerator at your disposal to cool drinks, and there are coffee and tea making facilities. The living room can be shared, or turned into a second bedroom at an additional cost, accommodating four people.

About the area

Unearth Amsterdam's Historic Treasures

The Dutch capital of Amsterdam, nestled in the heart of North Holland, is a living gallery of Golden Age architecture and centuries-old canals. Stroll through the historic Jordaan district, renowned for its maze of narrow streets and charming houses. Visit the Anne Frank House, a poignant testament to wartime resilience, or marvel at the opulent Royal Palace on Dam Square, once the epicenter of Dutch power. The Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum provide an immersive peek into the rich artistic tapestry of the Netherlands.

Explore Indoor Pleasures in Amsterdam

Amsterdam boasts a wealth of indoor activities to engage the curious mind. The Hermitage Amsterdam offers a taste of Russian aristocracy, while the interactive exhibits at the NEMO Science Museum captivate visitors of all ages. For contemporary art lovers, the Stedelijk Museum is a must-visit, housing an extensive collection of modern masterpieces. Don't miss the eye-popping vibrancy of the Electric Ladyland museum, dedicated entirely to fluorescent art.

Dive into Amsterdam's Enchanting Outdoors

Embrace the outdoors with a scenic canal cruise, gliding past iconic bridges and colorful houseboats that define Amsterdam's unique charm. The expansive Vondelpark, a true urban oasis, invites visitors for leisurely strolls, cycling adventures, or simply basking in the serene beauty. Journey a bit farther to the Amsterdamse Bos, a sprawling forest park ideal for hiking, boating, and horseback riding. For a tranquil escape, the city's botanical garden, Hortus Botanicus, offers a haven of exotic plants and trees.

Wildlife Wonders Near Amsterdam

While Amsterdam might not be known for its wildlife, the city offers unique encounters nonetheless. Artis Royal Zoo, one of the oldest zoos in Europe, provides a home for diverse species within a lush, park-like setting. Just a short trip outside the city, the Zaanse Schans region offers a glimpse into rural Dutch life, complete with pastures dotted with grazing sheep and traditional windmills. For bird enthusiasts, early morning trips to the nearby Waterland area offer the chance to spot native waterfowl and wading birds in their natural habitats.

Houseboat owner

Jan / Judith

Hi there! I am Judith, a Dutch girl in her late twenties. I have travelled a lot of my time and when I was looking for housing I found Josja. Together with the owner and help of friends we have renovated here. As an effort to earn back the renovations we thought: why not have others enjoy her too! So, here we are a while later.
