Houseboat description

Our location
The houseboat is located in a quiet side channel of the IJ and is moored on a quiet dike with many other houseboats. On the other side of the dike is the Wilmkebreekpolder, a unique piece of nature in the middle of Amsterdam. The free ferry NDSM wharf is a 25 minute walk or 5 minute bike ride. This will take you directly to the central station. Public transport is a 15 minute walk and you are in the heart of the city in 25 minutes.

If you want to explore the typical Dutch landscape with the vast green fields and charming waterways, our houseboat is also a perfect choice for you. It is nice to explore the small villages in the area by bike. The Zaanse Schans, a world heritage site with its iconic windmills, is also within easy reach.

Good night
Our guests appreciate our place because we are not far from the center, but do not suffer from noisy tourist crowds in our neighborhood. This ensures a wonderful night's sleep in the comfortable double bed. During your stay you will certainly enjoy the aquatic life as a 'local'.

After returning from the city you can either chill in your room or enjoy our garden. Through a sliding door in your room it is also possible to sit on our floating terrace. You can also use our pedal boat to explore the canal. In the summer months you can swim in the canal, as many locals do. Of course we offer all the luxury you can expect from a comfortable room: underfloor heating, fast wifi, television / radio and a private entrance.


Breakfast is included in the price and served in your room in DIY (Do It Yourself) style so you can enjoy it at your own time.

Free parking
Yes, it is quite exceptional in Amsterdam, but parking is free on our dike!

We have a good relationship with our neighbors and we want to keep it that way. That is why we ask you to cooperate with this. Staying in our B&B is a party, but we are not a party location. So no loud music or discussions in our garden.

We hope to have given you the best possible impression of our floating B&B, but feel free to ask questions if you still have them. We are happy to help you!

    Beautiful and cozy

    A very beautiful and cozy place to stay! Super quiet and an amazing view of the water! The host was very kind and she even picked us up from the ferry station!! If you want a quiet and peaceful stay this is the place to be! We didn’t explore the surroundings much, so can’t they anything about it. All in all we enjoyed our stay but probably we'd rather come in summer to be able to make use of the water as well!

    Pleasant and unusual accommodation Show original

    Roelie's houseboat is the ideal place for those who wish to be between the city and the countryside. With bikes and the ferry, you don't need a car to get around. The room is comfortable with everything needed for a good breakfast. We were able to take advantage of the sun to read on the pontoon, a treat! Thanks to Roelie for her availability during these 3 days!
