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 NDSM wharf ferry is a 25-minute walk away or 5 minutes by bike. This will take you directly to the central station. Public transport is a 15 minute walk and in 25 minutes you are in the heart of the city.

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, 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 are not bothered by 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 like a 'local'.

After coming back 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 luxuries you would 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 DIY (Do It Yourself) style room for you to enjoy at your own time.

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

We have a good relationship with our neighbors and would like to keep it that way. That is why we ask you to cooperate in this. The stay 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!

We are Jan and Roelie and we have the Bed and Breakfast 'Happiness together'.

Jan just has his daily work and I, Roelie, do most of the work in the B&B. I have always worked as a beautician and pedicure, recently stopped doing that and now do the B&B.

    A wonderful weekend

    We stayed in happiness together for a weekend trip to Amsterdam. It was a location in the countryside yet not to far from the centre. Beautiful peaceful location and the hosts were very nice and helpful. Would highly recommend a stay here if you are visiting Amsterdam and would like to stay somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

    A wonderful weekend Show original

    Considerate welcome, exceptional location, magnificent room, from the decoration (poster of the houses of Amsterdam, white duvet and very soft white ears) Impeccable cleanliness. Everything you need for breakfast (cheese, cereal bread, Greek yogurt, jams, orange juice, tea, herbal tea, Nespresso coffee, honey, chocolate granules, margarine and microwave to heat up soup!). Kindness of the hosts who picked us up at the Ferry and took us back to the Ferry. They accepted that we arrived 2 hours earlier than expected. Everything was perfect. We will return.

    Wonderful stay in Amsterdam Show original

    With my wife we stayed 5 days at Roelie. The place was charming and the beautiful setting the room was very good with all the necessary comfort. I particularly liked having breakfast available the day before: no schedule to keep, so late morning possible. It was hot during our stay and we found that the apartment kept the heat of the day well. So we slept with the window open. Roelie is very helpful, smiling and available. I highly recommend the place! If I had to point out one or two suggestions for improvement, I would suggest putting a mosquito net.

    Great time :)

    The boat was very nice and comfortable for our stay in Amsterdam. With Roelie and Jan we had really nice landlords. You can reach the city centre by the nearby ferry. We really enjoyed our evenings there being really calm. We had a wonderful time :)
