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!

    An excellent stay Show original

    Excellent stay on the houseboat, clean and comfortable, located in a quiet street. We also appreciated the private terrace.

    The historic center is only 10 minutes by bike, the surrounding Jordaan district is also really pleasant to discover, far from the tourist tumult.

    We recommend this stay, which we would gladly do again.

    You have to see it to believe it

    Me and my girl have been so fortunate to be one of the first guests since the place was renovated. The place in itself was just spot on, what an amazing job they have done and what an eye for detail. You truly step into a whole new world and I must admit that I really get to love this world. It was a surprise for my fiancee, and a surprise it was! The whole boat is decorated in a marvelous 70's design, with original lamps, vases etc. Not to mention the neighborhood. I knew this part from former visits to the city, and every time I love it more. Quite undiscovered by tourist masses and lots of cool restaurants that are no tourist traps for sure. We especially loved the Soundgarden, a laid back bar with amazing terrace and sun till late. Oh my, I hope the boat is available next time we hit Amsterdam!

    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!

    Great weekend!

    We (2 persons) stayed on the boat for three nights over a weekend in late June and were really happy on the accommodation. Check in worked really well and the place is just great with the big opening windows and the canal view. The location was easy to find and was really quiet with no through traffic neither on the canal nor the street so we had a really good night sleep every night. I can recommend this boat for anyone looking for a nice and comfortable house boat accommodation with some personal touch and cool 70's interior.
