Houseboat Authentic Sailing Ship Experience Amsterdam

Live like a sailor in the wonderful city harbor 'Houthaven' near the Jordaan Area

Houseboat summary

Welcome aboard our sailing ship, ready to dock in the historic city harbor 'Houthaven' or, in English, the Wood Harbor. This amazing area offers a superb combination of old warehouses and state of the art architecture. The harbor was dug in 1876 and the ship that you may call your home was built in 1906 - quite a piece of naval history. Your stay will be comfortable thanks to recent renovations and the many amenities in the immediate surroundings of the pier. The unique thing about this houseboat is that it can accommodate up to 12 guests right in the city center - a unique feature for sure!

Houseboat description

The living room is large and cozy, with a tv/dvd/audio installation. The open kitchen offers all the utensils you need to prepare a proper meal, also for larger groups, including a microwave, oven, fridge/freezer combination, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. 

The large windows in the ceiling let in lots of light, ensuring a bright atmosphere aboard. The authentic wooden floor and wood-stove contribute to the cosines of the ship, as well as the many nautical details such as the portholes and wooden walls and ceiling.

The bathroom has a shower, wash basin and a separate toilet.

The guests will sleep in beds divided over three huts. One hut offers three double beds, the second hut has two double (or large single) beds and the third hut has two single bunkbeds. Since you will be staying an an actual ship, these spaces are kind of limited, but we think this is largely compensated by the sense of freedom on the rest of this majestic vessel. 

The deck of the ship is a great place to relax and enjoy the picturesque surroundings. We also offer the option to rent bikes and canoes for reasonable prices. And of course we provide information about things to do in the neighborhood, hiking and cycling routes. 

Amsterdam city center can be reached by foot easily. On the West side the harbor is connected with the neighborhood called 'Spaarndammerbuurt' and on the other side you walk right into the buzzing Jordaan area.

So if you fancy a unique experience in an amazing rural setting, sleep aboard of a spacious hundred-ten-year old authentic ship and yet close to the vibrant Amsterdam city center, this is your perfect pick!
