Houseboat summary

Beautiful private studio on a eco-friendly houseboat (from 1912) near the city center of Amsterdam. You have your own private entrance and bathroom, so total freedom. You are our only guests. We live in the front of the houseboat.

Houseboat description

The studio is situated in the room where the skipper used to live with his family. You will have your own private entrance. There is a nice and comfortable double bed, a private bathroom with shower and toilet. 

There is a fridge with some drinks, microwave, Nespresso machine and a water cooker with coffee and tea. The nearest supermarket is located on a 3 minutes walking distance. There is a Bluetooth speaker for music and an old-school Nintendo game computer for fun!

Smoking and drugs are not allowed in the studio!

The studio can accommodate 2 adults very comfortable. It rather looks like an apartment than a room, because you have your own entrance and bathroom. Most guests end up spending much more time on board than they planned.

All kinds of delights are within walking distance. Including swimming from the boat (in summertime) and a place nearby to rent SUP boards. It's 5 minutes by bike to the trendy Amsterdam-East and 10 minutes to the city center. Trams (7 and 26) and buses (48 and 65) stop close by and walking into town is no problem.

How to get there

By car: for parking we always recommend the P+R Zeeburg. It costs €1 for 24 hours parking plus €5 for a public transport card. Max is 96 hours. In order to get the cheap fee you have to ride in after 10 am. Then you take tram 26 (with direction Central Station) and exit the first stop at Rietlandpark, then walk for 8 minutes to our houseboat. When you return to the parking, you NEED to use your public transport card to reach the P+R, at the P+R scan your public transport card at the machine and the parking fee will be lowered to €1 per day.

Parking in our street is also possible but that costs €4,5 per hour (between 9 am and 12 pm).

By public transport: from Schiphol Airport you can take the train to Amsterdam Central station. From there you take tram 26 with direction IJburg. You exit the tram at the stop Rietlandpark. From there it is a 8 minute walk to our boat. Or you can take take bus 48 towards Borneo eiland at platform C. Get off at the C. van Eesterenlaan.

About the area

Our neighborhood is called Zeeburg and is build in the old port of Amsterdam. The area is green and spacious. The east side of Amsterdam is a very nice and upcoming trendy area with a great multicultural mixture of shops, bars and restaurants.

We live in a very friendly neighborhood with lots of young families. We live on the boat ourselves and therefore our place is not suitable for partying, no drugs are allowed and we insist that our visitors respect the privacy of our neighbors and will not be noisy and loud.

Please don't forget: Duyfken is a ship surrounded by water. It is suitable for children (we have them ourselves) but we cannot take responsibility for other parents. Besides this please note that it's a ship and not suitable for disabled people and people with balance problems.

I am Marloes and I live with my husband (Jasper) and our two sons (7 and 3 years old) on our beautiful houseboat near the city center of Amsterdam. We really love this place and would like to share this experience with other people. Besides this we love to meet other people and to accommodate their trip to Amsterdam.

    Wonderful! Show original

    We had a very nice, undisturbed and quiet time together on Marloes and Jasper's boat. Having a separate entrance and having the space on top of the boat to ourselves was lovely. The fact that it is also possible to go swimming from the boat is terrific. A SUP is also available. The connection to the city is very convenient, both by public transport and by bicycle (about 15 minutes). Marloes and Jasper are very friendly and helpful hosts who were always easy to contact. A big thank you!

    Great place to stay! Show original

    The accommodation is a very spacious and modern room with a private bathroom. Very suitable for two people. The distance to the city center is great to master with the tram. The landlords live with you on the boat, but that in no way restricts you. The family is super friendly and always available for tips. We felt very comfortable. Gladly again!

    Great stay!

    The room is really cute, perfectly clean with all the comforts needed. It allowed us to have a perfect weekend. On top of that the owners are the nicest I ever had, with plenty of helpful advice, they made the stay even better!

    Great boat, great hosts!

    Marloes and her family are really very personable, helpful, have great tips for the area and a great knack for interior design. We were really happy about small gifts such as a personal welcome sign, an Amsterdam memory or drinks in the fridge. We felt very comfortable and would have liked to have stayed longer. Thanks for the great time!

    Lovely place close to the city Show original

    Quiet place on the water but still close to the center. In addition, close to the boarding point for Lighthouse Island.
