Houseboat summary

The interior of this unique floating apartment, on the verge of the Jordaan, is inspired by the 'space age'. A time when mankind reached for the moon, and beyond. This space exploration influenced designers around the world to create completely new furniture, concepts of living and of course... the Lava Lamp. And this is now available aboard my wonderful houseboat on one of the most charming canals of Amsterdam. Groovy baby!

Houseboat description


Important note: no smoking or drugs of any kind allowed aboard!

Once you set foot on That 70's Boat, it is like you get into a time capsule. The interior architect was given the task to create a genuine and unique experience with eye for detail. He has not failed: from the funky wall paper to every single artifact aboard, you will truly feel that you are in that funky era. We warmly invite you to surprise both yourself and your beloved one with a unique experience!

The first thing you will see in the hallway is an original stamp of the Sputnik satellite, which marked the start of The Space Age in 1957. Open the door to your apartment to enter the spacious living room with a comfortable couch, large flat-screen TV and a epic round table with bottle holes in it. From here you have a full view over the canal thanks to the large sliding window. On the side of the boat there is a wonderful floating garden with bamboo plants that create a wonderful, private and warm atmosphere inside the boat. The whole apartment has floor heating for your convenience.

On your left hand side there is the dining area with four genuine tulip chairs of the world famous designer Eero Saarinen. Designed in the late 50's, and now more popular then ever. The buffet cupboard is also vintage, contributing to the authentic experience that we want to offer. There is a Nespresso coffee maker, cooker, refrigerator and a sink, but no cooking facilities. And why would you want that? With a wide variety of great bars and restaurants within minutes walking, you will most likely have problems choosing where to eat every night. 

The bedroom is a place of tranquility, a place to land and have a great night sleep. Here you also have water view, so you can watch the swans, geese and ducks swimming by right from your bedroom. We offer a high quality queen size bed. And how proud I am to have found a genuine Herda lamp from the 70's - hope you like it as much as I do! 

In the bathroom, with Italian tiling and a cute porthole, there is a large rain shower, toilet, small sink and a hair dryer. 

About the area where the houseboat is located, this is called 'Oud West', or in English 'Old West'. This is right next to the famous Jordaan area where you can wander for hours without getting bored a bit. Countless restaurants, bars, boutique shops and museums are waiting for you. The Anne Frank House is just 5 minutes walking away, and also the Westerpark, Museum Square and Dam Square are within walking distance. Public transport is literally around the corner, taking you to every possible corner of the city within 30 minutes.

Last but not least I want to let you know that you have access to the amazing roof terrace of 5 x 5 meters till 10 pm all year round. Without a doubt the most amazing place to sit back and relax. And one last thing that is good to know: our boat is totally drugs and smoke free, so no drugs of any kind is allowed aboard.

We hope you appreciate to go all the way with this daring design, and we look forward to welcome you aboard!

    Houseboat

    Our floating house was very pretty and welcoming. The point was strategic, Jordan quarter 20 minutes walk from everything. I enjoyed the retro style and the canal view, a special experience for those who do not live in amsterdam.

    There are small improvements to be made, such as the dust in the apartment, the 3 green towels stained with yellow, or the stains under the toilet that at first glance look like pee, and one of the 4 chairs in the living room that is not entirely stable. Overall I am satisfied it was nice to stay in this Houseboat and I would recommend it.

    Nice stay with pros and cons.

    The houseboat was very nice, a bit smaller than what we thought but really comfortable, the view of the canal is unforgettable, big window are the real magic. We have not met Valkiria, but she was nice and fast to answer to our need. The house vintage touch is for sure ad added value and the taste is very nice. 

    Pros: incredible view almost 360°, lovely vintage touch, very comfortable bed, easy check in and check out by ourselves, nice and big shower stall with two different shower pipes (both very clean and perfectly working). tea facilities.

    Cons: number on the boat is different from what stated in the houseboat description, you will see 310 not 129 and this can confuse you (at least this confused us!). Nice idea the coffee machine Nespresso but if you don't provide coffee caps (neither few) this is totally useless :( (and yes, coffee for Italians is Important!!).  Sink's size in the bathroom is smaller than your hands (probably also of your children hands ;).

    Lovely time!

    We had a great time in Amsterdam and loved staying on the houseboat! The houseboat was just as described and exactly what we needed for 2 people. Some mention it was small, but really it was the perfect size to sleep and get ready for the next day. Very accessible via trams from Amsterdam centraal. Walkable to any point in  the city or easy to hop on trams to get where we needed to go. The houseboat is in a very quiet part of the city, which was nice to come home to after a busy day! Could have been a bit cleaner, but otherwise very happy and satisfied with our stay!

    cute, comfortable oasis!

    Valkiria was responsive and helpful and her house out is darling and comfortable, a great oasis to retire to at the end of a long day of touristing. The houseboat is pretty conveniently located to a couple tram stops, and some great local eateries. We loved staying in a quiet neighborhood in a spot we otherwise might not have seen and it was so easy to get around. The houseboat is cozy, and we were happy w the spacious shower and the big windows althoigh the sinks are small for my taste. Overall though the experience of sharing the houseboat added to the trip and we're so happy we stayed here. Thank you, Valkiria!
