How to get there

Our floating B&B is situated on the KNSM-Island, a peninsula just around the corner of the beautiful old town of Amsterdam. You’ll enjoy the peace and quietness after a day of busy sightseeing. Within 15 minutes you’ll bike to the middle of town or take a tram / bus around the corner that will take you there in a short ride.

The Park and Ride where you can park your car for a good price is just a few stops away with the tram. Public transport will take you anywhere from here. Tram 7 is the best line to explore the whole of Amsterdam and it just stops around the corner.

All the necessary information how to travel we’ll provide when you book the room.

About the area

In summertime you’ll find locals swimming in the harbor and so can you! Nearby you’ll find a place to rent a SUP board for example or you can always ask us if you want some information about boat rides on the canal. Within walking distance there's an excellent and cosy harbor café/restaurant and a vegan restaurant option. Besides a bakery and some fine shops on the island you’ll find close by a shopping center with a supermarket and other stores.

Houseboat owner


My name is Roy. 47 years old and your 'Captain' aboard. In my professional life I work as a program manager and concept creative for a public broadcast company. Creative, innovative, communicative and always in for a good laugh. Together with my partner Xander we host our B&B on our houseboat in Amsterdam. We loved designing and renovated this place just recently. And we were very proud to be announced as the houseboat of the year according to the public vote in 2018. It's the best way of living in Amsterdam and it feels almost everyday as being on holiday. Together with ship cat Eddie we're looking forward to welcome you!

    “This was one of our best city-holiday experiences ever. Xander and Roy are the perfect hosts, the information they gave were all very helpful, their reactivity immediate to any demand. The apartment on this boat is just marvelous, perfectly designed and cozy. Every morning we swam directly from the boat. A perfect stay in Amsterdam! Thanks again to our super-hosts.”

    We were able to spend a fantastic 3 days on the Levantus. Roy and Xander are great hosts. The houseboat is lovingly furnished and the muesli is a great start to the day. Class! The boat is in a nice and quiet location and you can reach the center of Amsterdam within a few minutes. It just doesn't get any better. We say THANK YOU for the good time. Kind regards Ramona & Axel

    The perfect houseboat

    My fiance and I could not have been happier with our stay at Roy and Xander. The houseboat was so unique! I loved falling asleep to the gentle rock of the boat. In addition to the beautiful space on the water, Roy and Xander also provided breakfast and a whole book of tips and suggestions for our visit to Amsterdam. I feel so lucky that our search lead us to Roy and Xander's place; it was the perfect place to complete our time in Amsterdam.

    houseboat stay Show original

    The apartment on the houseboat is absolutely magical. Well maintained, stylishly furnished and you are warmly welcomed on board. The location of the boat is quiet and you have a beautiful view of the water. We gratefully enjoyed the welcome greetings from the fridge after a long day in the city :) Taking a warm shower wasn't a problem. Sleeping was very comfortable. We would love to come back!!! Thank you for these great days on your houseboat :)
