Houseboat summary

Unique modern studio in our houseboat located in the green. A hidden and cherished place of Amsterdammers. Everything is within reach. Walk, bike or take public transportation into or out of the city. We are happy to receive guests who want to discover the best of Amsterdam, such as museums, restaurants, architecture, parks, terraces, etc.

Our houseboat is located in a quiet area and at the same time there are many restaurants and cafes within walking distance. It is also possible to walk into the woods from the studio after a day in the busy city or take a dip in the Schinkel.

We only rent our studio to guests of which at least one person is 23 years or older.

The studio was designed in collaboration with interior architect Steven Baart (Typography Interiority & Other Serious Matters) and built by the owners themselves.

About the area

Our houseboat is situated in the greenest part of the city – a treasured place by ‘Amsterdammers’. 8-12 minutes from both the City center as ‘het Amsterdamse Bos’ (the Amsterdam Forest) which makes it perfect if you want to explore the city as well as if you want to unwind a bit from what the city has to offer. 

Close to Old West, a great neighborhood with some of the best restaurants and terraces.

Houseboat owner


I have been living on this houseboat with my wife and two daughters for 26 years. Since our daughters started living on their own, we started building a studio to receive guests.
After two years of construction, we have been ready to receive guests since mid-July. Both my wife and I were born and raised in Amsterdam. We are happy to share our knowledge about Amsterdam with our guests.

    Houseboat for marathon runners Show original

    We had a great stay with very nice landlords. The houseboat is not far from the Olympic Stadium and is ideal as accommodation for those who want to take part in the Amsterdam Marathon.
