Houseboat summary

The houseboat Joy has been my place in Amsterdam for a year. The boat has been lovingly renovated in 2019 and meets all luxury and conveniences. If you rent the Joy, you have the entire boat at your disposal. Living on the water is very special. You won't be wobbling in your bed, it is very stable and gives you a constant feeling of vacation.

Who doesn't want breakfast with a view over the water? The tranquility you experience in the buzzing city is unique.

The boat is situated in the Jordaan. The Haarlemmerstraat is just around the corner. And across the street is Cafe Papeneiland one of the oldest pubs in the city. It's bustling here. You can find the cosiness in the area, but also the tranquility.

There are many shops, supermarkets, great restaurants and you can see something unique on every corner. The old warehouses/apartments next to the boat are historical monuments and are listed in the lonely planet. The Anne Frank House is about a 10-minute walk away. As is the famous Westerkerk where painter Rembrandt is buried.

The Noordermarkt is across the street and there is an organic market on Saturdays and vintage items on Mondays.

From the Central Station you are at the boat in a 10 minute walk.

Houseboat description

When you enter the boat you are immediately in the luxury kitchen that is fully equipped. Oven, dishwasher, etc. So cook it nice and loose. From the dining table in the kitchen you look out over the water and de Brouwersgracht.

The seating area is located a bit lower and you will find peace and quiet there and, the TV.

Via a staircase you reach the front deck where you can enjoy the morning sun and the bustle of the water.

On the right side of the boat is the bedroom with a double bed and plenty of cupboard space. And an air conditioning for the hot days. You will be surprised how quiet it is at night. This part of the Brouwersgracht doesn't have not much traffic.

In the bedroom you can use the washing machine and dryer. Next to the bedroom you'll find the bathroom with shower and there is a separate toilet.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. And I'm always around.

How to get there

The houseboat is located at the beginning of the Prinsengracht intersecting with the Brouwersgracht. It is about a 20 minutes drive by taxi from Schiphol airport. It's about a 10 minute walk from the train station. Next to the train station is the metro that takes you to the other side of Amsterdam. You can also rent bicycles nearby on which you can explore the city. If you come by car, there are parking facilities where you can park at a lower rate if you make a reservation on time. 

About the area

The place on the Brouwersgracht where the boat is located is quiet. There is almost no traffic. Across the water is the Lindegracht, where there is a lively market on Saturday. The supermarket can be found 200 meters away, on the Haarlemmerstraat. There are also many restaurants there. I advise you to make your reservation on time. There are also a lot of cafe's in the area.

You have to experience it.
