Houseboat summary

Picture a bright, luxurious and cozy houseboat with a huge deck. Now picture yourself on it. Surrounded by glistening water, gently swaying in your hammock al fresco, rewinding after a day in the hustle & bustle of the city. Feels pretty amazing, huh?

Moored on Java Island, the top floor of our Dreamship where you'll be staying (note: downstairs is inhabited) provides the perfect setting to explore and relax. Watch the sun rise on your left and set on your right, enjoy the glorious harbour views, the sun deck, the BBQ, the books, the good coffee, the private sauna or just the whole houseboat experience. You can even join the locals for a refreshing swim in the IJ-river.

Houseboat description

Our redesigned steering cabin (35m2) on the upper floor is your ultimate ship experience in Amsterdam. Featuring a bathroom, an open space bedroom with a queen size bed, and a bright living room surrounded by windows.

The stunning sun deck offers yet another space to enjoy the almost 360 harbour view and is ideal for relaxation and having a BBQ. The kitchenette is equipped for preparing light meals (no cooking/no stove). There are different appliances available like an oven / micorwave / kettle / toaster / egg-cooker / Nespresso-machine / fridge.

Tea and coffee can be filled up on request. If your stay exceeds 3 days, extra towels will be provided and there are hammam towels at hand for using the sauna. The independent B&B upstairs is private and the ideal retreat for 1 or 2 guests (not more). You have your own entrance. Note: downstairs is inhabited.

As is typical on ships in general it should be said that not all the areas of the ship are standard height* which is why the studio may not be suitable for very tall people!

*2.10m in the middle

Our Dreamship officially complies with all the rules for a B&B on a ship in Amsterdam.

    Simply stunning...perfect destination for a couple!

    Our stay on the houseboat has been wonderful. We stayed for my husband's birthday in August. She's absolutely beautiful. Be assured that there are absolutely no compromises staying on her that you sometimes experience when staying on a boat. She's quiet, airy and really comfortable. We had breakfast on the sundeck, watching the moorhen mums with their babies and seeing the early morning swimmers go by. You're really close to the city center and the public transport is cheap, clean and convenient. There's a great Italian and Spanish restaurant within staggering distance. Our evenings were rounded off with a bottle of wine on the sundeck watching amazing sunsets. A truly 5 star experience. Suzan, thank you for everything you did for us. I can't thank you enough X

    Very nice boat Show original

    We were on the boat for a weekend and it was all very well organized and beautiful. The terrace is very large and most of the day in the sun, so you could relax and soak up the sun. The boat was very clean. The surrounding area was quiet, supermarket and restaurants within walking distance. Suzan was very hospitable and kind. The accommodation can only be recommended.

    A wonderful option in Amsterdam

    We enjoyed five days on the houseboat and highly recommend it. The location is convenient and scene so relaxing with the boats slowly going by on the river. The houseboat has everything you need for a most-memorable vacation, and having owner Suzan nearby was very helpful when we needed anything.

    Best Houseboat Stay!

    I surprised my boyfriend with a houseboat stay for his birthday and it was amazing! The space was clean and spacious allowing for us to relax and enjoy the water. It was easy to order food for delivery and just relax on the deck to watch the sunset. Suzan was a great host, quick to communicate and even helped me get a birthday cake to add to the surprise. You are a little out of the Amsterdam action which we wanted as we live in the city and needed a quick getaway. Highly recommend this experience!
