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!

    Had a wonderful time on the houseboat! One of the highlights of our trip was waking up and seeing the water right there, it was just the most peaceful way to start the day and unlike any other experience. The decor was fun and the bed was super comfortable. Location was great!

    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!

    3 nights @ amsterdam

    Very nice and clean place.

    We enjoyed it a lot

    only one thing, maybe if it had a microwave it would be nice to get something easy to eat at home.

    The best of Amsterdam

    my wife and I just returned from a 3 day stay aboard “That 70’s boat” and it was a stay we will never forget. The location is wonderful both in terms of local transportation and the view. The boat itself was very clean and we felt completely at home. As an added bonus we made a few new friends when 2 swans and several ducks came over to welcome us to the neighbourhood. Highly recommended.

    Lovely boat house

    Enjoyed the stay a lot. The place was clean and in quiet neighborhood, occasional boats go by but not super busy in the evenings. Easy access to the city and tourist attractions by tram or on foot.
