Our houseboat is located at the beginning of Zijkanaal I, near the NDSM wharf. Huge sea ships were built there for decades. When the sea-going vessels were launched to water, the houseboats in the area were warned to untie the ropes because of a massive displacement.
Today, the slipways and halls are mainly used for various cultural activities. And the old yard also houses several tasty and cozy restaurants.
The houseboat has two apartments. You will be staying in the B&B apartment. We live in the front apartment. So you will be sharing the houseboat. Both apartments have private outdoor spaces and the walls have sound insulation, but please be aware our our quiet hours and the house rules.
Our houseboat village is a close-knit community and we all take each other into consideration. This is also expected of you when you stay with us.

How to get there
If you come by car it is best to use a navigation app. Please do not enter the address of the houseboat, but the address of the free parking space: Buiksloterdijk 403, postal code 1033 ZA, Amsterdam. When you arrive at the parking lot, you will see a path next to number 401. Enter that path and after 50 meters you will see the jetty where our houseboat is located.
If you come by public transport, take the ferry to the NDSM wharf. From there it is an 8 minute walk to our houseboat.
If you come by taxi, you can enter either of these two addresses.
Address 1: Klaprozenweg 60. You will come to a parking lot that is not paved. At the 2nd lamppost is a path that leads to the houseboat harbor. There is a wooden Indian on the corner. At the end of that short path, turn right and continue to the last jetty. You will quickly see our houseboat.
Address 2: Buiksloterdijk 403. Walk to the path next to the last houseboat. After 50 meters you will see the jetty where our houseboat is moored.
About the area
The houseboat village where our boat is located lies on the separation between the city and the countryside. Within 5 to 10 minutes walking you are at the hip NDSM wharf. Large seagoing ships used to be built there. Today there are nice restaurants and many cultural activities take place. From the wharf you can reach the Central Station in the city center in 7 minutes by ferry.
Also within a 5 minute walk from the ark is a nice park to visit. In 10 minutes cycling you are in the leafy Waterland with all its picturesque villages.
I cannot imagine my life without the proximity of water. As a child I often went with my father who worked in the harbor. And we went sailing and sailing. I have never felt more comfortable anywhere than on our houseboat. The holiday feeling in the summer, the adrenaline when it storms and the lights swing back and forth. It's so special. Life in our houseboat community is very similar to life in a village as it used to be. We all know each other, help each other when necessary, but let everyone in their own way. I like to share the experiences of living on the water in a houseboat community with others.Show original

Charming and cozy Show originalShow original
Cozy houseboat furnished with charm and lots of love. A bed in which one sleeps heavenly. But you shouldn't be too tall, the ceiling in the bedroom is very low. The only thing we missed was a place to sit outside.
David F - Belgium
The houseboat was located in a very quiet place to relax in bustling Amsterdam, yet not far from the center. We could also use the canoe to cool off during the hot days. Saskia is a very friendly lady. We will come back for sure!

The houseboat is in a very quiet, idyllic place. Very friendly helpful neighbors. The apartment is clean, beautiful and comfortably furnished and has a wonderful terrace. It is only a short distance to the center of Amsterdam (10min by bike)

Dear Saskia, it was beneficial for us to have such a wonderful starting point for our excursions into the city. The houseboat is magical, we were warmly welcomed by you in the pouring rain and enjoyed the special flair. We'd love to come back! Heike and Hannes

The houseboat is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Saskia, the landlady, is a great landlady, super nice, they help immediately if you have a request and the days were fantastically beautiful. We are happy to recommend the houseboat, our dog Felix also felt at home, as there was a large dog park just around the corner! Kind regards, Susanne and Helmut and dog Felix
