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!

    Nice accommodation Show original

    Very nice accommodation. We borrowed bikes from Roelie and were quickly in the city and still had our peace and quiet in the evening and not the hustle and bustle of the city. The houseboat is in a great location. We felt very comfortable on the houseboat and we didn't miss anything. I can recommend the accommodation to everyone.

    Our stay at Roelie's Positives: nice, cozy bed & breakfast with a nice view in a quiet location. Very tasty breakfast! In front of the plant a bird paradise. Our host Rueli picked us up from the ferry and brought us back. A big thank you! All in all we enjoyed staying at the houseboat! Negative: unfortunately little storage space for suitcases and the like. Cobwebs and spiders outside the windows weren't great. There was also a fan running which was a bit noisy at night.

    Happiness Together

    We loved our stay and would always come back. Having a floating terrace right from the house was magical and the room was extremely comfortable with nice breakfast in the morning. With a bike, the location is perfect for enjoying not only the busy city center but also the historic small villages around Amsterdam Noord. Roelie and her husband are extremely friendly and pleasant hosts. Three days was sure not enough and we look forward to coming back as soon as we can.

    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.

    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!
