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 artefact 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 flatscreen 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 litterally 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!

    We were so lucky to have stayed on Valkiria's houseboat. The entire place was comfy and cozy. This was the right size for the two of us.

    It was fun to watch the swans, ducks, and other fowl swim up to the windows. In my opinion we had an upgraded view due to the temporary alternate mooring location, which was only about a block from the original location.

    We were in close proximity to everything we wanted. Easy walk to Anne Frank, Van Gogh, FoodHallen, and other areas of interest.

    We loved the nearby shops. Three recommendations that are nearby; Moeders (food), The Kiwi (fun bar), Stach (homemade sweets). 

    Highly encourage you to book this houseboat if you find it avaiable for your dates of stay.

    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.
