Houseboat summary

Experience the freedom and nature in our renovated houseboat which has a bit of an eclectic, Ibiza look and feel to it.

In summertime enjoy our 30m2 south facing floating terrace, protected between our neighbouring houseboat-ships and overlooking the large swimming waters of the Entrepot harbour, facing old warehouses which are now apartments. Summertime also means  swimming directly from the terrace, your kids can sail, row, SUP..

It's just 15min bike ride or 10min by public transport (tram, bus) from all the action Amsterdam has to offer.

All convenience stores, supermarkets at 5min walk. Wednesday BIO market with fresh fish, cheese, bread at 2minutes walk is a treat.

 

Houseboat description

Last winter, we purchased this lovely floating house with our family. With the yellow & blue outside, completed with a 30m2 floating terrace with cotton shades, stairs & slide to directly enter the water and a few boats, SUP, it would probably make Pippi Longstocking feel right at home.

We have upgraded the inside with soft, eco green and pink colours, oak details to give the floating house a relaxed atmosphere. Main feature of course, especially in summer is to have the doors open early morning to late evenings.

It's o.k. to have a barbecue outside and it's even possible to make a small fire in the bbq as long as you won't put our neighbours in crowds of smoke.

We have a bunch of bikes for you to use, including our electric 'bakfiets' that brings you effortless and anywhere in no-time..of you dare!

How to get there

If you come by car, best to park at Park&Ride Zeeburg, which is just 1 tram-stop to 'Rietlandpark' and from there just 5 min walk. You'll be paying close to nothing as this system tries to keep cars out of the city. Please note parking at the boat is 5 EUR/hour and only free on Sundays!

if you come by plane or public transport, easy to reach from Central Station: Take tram 26, about 10 minutes to 'Rietlandpark', then a 5 min walk.

About the area

In the 90's the old sea harbour islands 'Eastern Docks' have been rebuilt to a fantastic residential area: Where once seagoing ships came and left to sail the world, it's now a tranquil area, very wide with lots of air and large waters.

Very popular for families with young and older kids. A completely different experience from the beautiful, but especially during holidays, very busy streets downtown so it's always great to come back after a day of sightseeing downtown to relax. The feeling of wanting to leave the city for nature kind of left us once we settled here.

Shopping area at 5 minutes and 3 minutes away a very nice, small BIO market on Wednesdays. There's a few kids playgrounds around, including a Ping-pong table, cable/climbing racks.

Also nice to walk the islands, see the great (new) architecture and wide views over the waters.
