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. It is even possible to sit on our floating terrace via a small step through the window of your room. In the summer months you can swim in the canal, as many locals do. Of course we offer all the luxury 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 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!

    Everything is great! Show original

    We enjoyed our stay very much. Roelie and Jan are very friendly (thank you very much for the trip to the ferry and the printed bike map as well as the use of the stand-up paddling) The houseboat is the perfect starting point for excursions into the city. In the evening you can sit comfortably and quietly by the water.

    What a lovely place

    If you want to discover Amsterdam AND enjoy some harmony and silence after the day in the city the houseboat of Roelie in the north of Amsterdam is perfect for you. You can feel the love of the owner in this houseboat - it has charme, is clean and there‘s everything you need on it. You can reach the centre of Amsterdam by foot or by bike if you use the (free) NDSM ferry. Thank you Roelie for an amazing time on your houseboat in this wonderful city!!

    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!

    A wonderfully quiet location to spend the night if you want to stay in Amsterdam for a few days, for example. We were picked up by Roelie by car from the ferry and at the houseboat there were 2 bicycles waiting for us... ideal!! Everything you need for a tasty and full breakfast was available and the bed slept wonderfully. Recommended!

    Pleasant stay Show original

    Comfortable, clean and quiet B&B. Nothing is missing. The owners are friendly and helpful (they picked us up from the ferry and drove us there). Location close to the city (North) For a few euros you can rent bikes from the owners. Very convenient and cool for visiting Amsterdam!
