Houseboat summary

Romantic stay in the heart of Amsterdam, everything is within walking distance, many restaurants and shops in the direct environment.

But the canal itself is calm and quiet in the evening. A great place to get away from it all with your sweetheart and to enjoy watching the passing boats on deck with a good glass of wine.

Houseboat description

This Romantic Houseboat is an antique boat converted in to a small but very comfortable apartment. The style of the house can only be described as uncluttered 'old Amsterdam' style. I live myself on the other side of the boat with my two cats.

Located in the center everything can be walked from here, the boat is 15 min walk from central station.

Only five minutes walk from Dam Square, and 15 from Central Station. The boat is surrounded by many restaurants, cafes, bars, Rembrandt Square, Nieuwmarkt, Waterlooplein and markets (Waterlooplein) Amsterdam's Stopera (the principal opera house) are all in view from the apartment which means that even a spontaneous stroll through the neighborhood could turn most exiting.

As its a boat you get to see Amsterdam from a very unique perspective and truly enjoy the canals in a romantic way. Street musicians do choose to perform near the market due to it's creative nature so it is possible you would find yourself waking up to the sound of violins.

The boat is 100 years old witch means it’s antic, romantic and very quite. It’s not a 5 star hotel room what makes it very cosy.

Feeding the ducks in the morning is really nice to do.

    Pure Amsterdam magic

    Lydia and her place is pure Amsterdam magic. Her warmth and genuine excitement to meet guests plus the beautiful views from the boat is something special. Every nook has a different view or something to discover. Definitely will stay here again!

    We will definitely return!

    Lydia’s houseboat was great, and we will definitely return. She (and her cats) was a very welcoming and friendly host. The place was very cozy and it was great being right on the water. It was walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and bike rental places.

    The houseboat itself is very quaint, the location within the city is perfect, and the host Lydia is incredibly welcoming! It doesn’t feel like a shared space at all—it feels very private.
