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!

Houseboat owner



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.

    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!

    Quiet on the water in the countryside Show original

    The room is beautifully situated on the river. The bed is good. But the equipment in the room is not enough. No closet/shelf to store clothes and luggage well. No hair dryer. Just a curling iron with hair from the previous guests on it. Unfortunately only superficially clean, many areas were dusty on arrival and there were still individual glass splinters and small dust balls on the floor. Breakfast for self-preparation was too tight and there was often something missing. There was a lot more choice and effort in other B&Bs in Holland. But the location is good if you want peace and still want to explore the city. Ferry is free by bike 10 minutes away and rent bikes from the hostess for a reasonable price. The hostess tried very hard when the internet was broken and took good care of it. Swimming in the canal is highly recommended.

    stay in autumn Show original

    We used the houseboat for a long weekend and a city trip through Amsterdam. We really liked the quiet and the beautiful surroundings. Roelie was a very nice hostess. The sink was unfortunately very stained and the fridge was not filled up as I said.

    Nice houseboat with nice landlords Show original

    We had a very nice time in Amsterdam and the houseboat. The landlords were very nice and there was a great breakfast. You could jump into the water straight from the bedroom. The room was small but very efficiently furnished.
