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!

    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!!

    Wonderful short vacation Show original

    The room is lovingly furnished and Roelie tried very hard to make us feel comfortable. Already on arrival we had breakfast for three days in the fridge and we were personally instructed in everything. The location was perfect for us. In about half an hour we were in the city center of Amsterdam by ferry, at night we felt like we were in the country because it was really super quiet. There is the possibility to sit on the jetty at the canal or to swim. Wonderful! In addition, the ferry dock at the NDSM is about 5 minutes away, where many cultural events take place and various artists are active. Very interesting! All in all it was a very nice short trip in a very lovingly furnished one-room apartment on Roelie's houseboat.

    Peaceful stay

    We had a lovely time staying with Roelie & Jan on their boat. The bedroom is a good size and opens straight out onto the deck on the canal. We had the best nights' sleep in a long time as it was so quiet and peaceful. The location is just to the north of the city but easily accessible with a walk from the free ferry. We also bought transport passes and it's an even shorter walk from the 35 or 36 bus. There is also a supermarket within a 10 minute walk. Breakfast is served yourself from goods Roelie leaves in the fridge including bread, meats, cheese, yogurt and eggs. A lovely coffee machine is also in the room with a plentiful supply of coffee bags. We also made use of their pedalo attached to the dock to take a look around the canals from the water on a Sunday morning We would definitely want to return here next time we are in Amsterdam!
