We love to welcome you aboard our newly renovated boutique houseboat cabin. When designing this apartment in the front of our houseboat, we kept in mind that where you sleep, should be a part of the ‘Amsterdam experience’. The result is a spacious yet cosy, private and comfortable place you may call your home for a few days. Our ship is docked directly on the local swimming pond in the wonderful Eastern Docks, famous for it’s wide views, modern architecture and great swimming in summer. The city is just a few minutes away thanks to good public transport connections. We warmly welcome families with up to two kids.
Now let us tell you something about the boutique cabin. You have access to a bright 3-room apartment, measuring 35 sqm. The place has high ceilings and includes a living room with kitchenette, bathroom and bedroom.
We offer high speed wi-fi, and in the living room there is a Chrome cast 42” digital TV and sound system for streaming your Netflix and Spotify. Thanks to the floor heating and good ventilation you are assured to enjoy a comfortable climate all year round. Furthermore there is a sofa bed for two kids to sleep.
In the kitchenette you will find a micro wave, tea kettle, a Nespresso machine and refrigerator with freezer for preparing light meals (note: no cooking). The bathroom is nicely finished with modern fittings, thermostatic taps, shower with unlimited hot water, hairdryer, towels and hand soap. In the bedroom we offer a comfortable double bed, a cupboard and suitcase rack.
Our ship is moored on KNSM island that is part of the Eastern Docklands of Amsterdam. Merchants and world travellers used to depart from here to the East Indies, the United States and Surinam. Today KNSM island is known for its modern architecture, interior design shops and waterside cafes. Take your breakfast with commuters in Bakkerswinkel Neeltje, drink a beer with locals in Cafe De Zuid or dine with Dutch celebrities at the Harbour Club.

How to get there
Getting here by plane/train: we recommend taking the train into Amsterdam Central Station. Walk to the busdeck north of the station and take bus 48 toward Borneo Eiland at platform C. Get off at Azartplein (5th stop) and walk 5m (400m) eastward along the Levantkade.
Getting here by by car: we recommend to first drop your bags and then to park cheap at Park and Ride Zeeburg. Of course we will share more elaborate details once you have made the booking.

It is a pleasure inviting you on our Coaster Mado. Living on a boat gives us a holiday feeling year round, which we would like to share with you. During the day we are busy with work and our kids are at school, but we are happy to answer any question before and during your stay.

Perfectly renovated houseboat - great eye for detail
As an architect I must say I'm impressed with the work that Sander has put in renovating this houseboat apartment. Thumbs up, not in the least because of the great choices he made when it comes to the details. Very comfortable place, with warm and welcoming colors, lots of natural materials that create a warm atmosphere. And how much I like the Van Gogh anonymous 'painting' in the living room - very funny! The location is very convenient, just outside the city centre but close to the city because of good public transport. You will find various cool bars and restaurants (Kanis and Meiland is a super place with a water side terrace!). During the summer this must be close to heaven for those who like to swim in open water! Thanks for having us and all the best with your great houseboat rental in Amsterdam!

My family (me, my wife and my 4 year old) loved every moment that we were staying at the houseboat. The location is quiet and really easy to find. We stayed for 3 nights and utilized public transit - there is a bus stop within 500m from the houseboat (super convenient). Sander and Marieke were perfect hosts and Sander's son even let our son use some of his toys. The houseboat was equipped as described and meet all our needs. We would stay again and again.

Fantastic and Unique stay at Sanders & Marieke's Boathouse.
Me and my boyfriend Mattias had an absolutely fantastic stay in this boathouse. It was a very unique experience of a lifetime spending time in the boat..enjoying fresh morning breeze on the boathouse and admiring stars on the deck at night The hosts Sanders and Marieke were both very warm, accommodating and attentive to our needs and so is their housekeeper Laura.. all of them gave lots of useful suggestions on things to do in Amsterdam and the nearby neighbourhood I was very pleasantly surprised that the host went to extend of flying the Singapore flag on the houseboat!! And last but not least..I was blessed to witness both sunrise and see moon at same time on the last morning of my stay!! Highly recommended hosts, you wont regret the stay.

Great stay - everything was perfect!
We - my wife and i - stayed for two nights at the houseboat. It was a great time. The apartment is not very big, but very nice and cozy, we enjoyed the whole time at this lovely place. The boat is located close to the city center (two stops with the tram). You can found nice restaurants and shops in the neighborhood!
Thanks to Marieke and Sander for the warm welcome and your great recommendations. Everything was perfect!

Fantastic time in Amsterdam
Wir waren Gäste auf dem Hausboot vom 19.-22.09.19!
Es war unsere erste Hausboot-/Boot-Übernachtungserfahrung und es war grossartig.
Der Empfang der beiden Eigentümer war aufrichtig herzlich!
Die Lage des Bootes ist hervorragend. Schnelle Wege mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln und absolute Ruhe in den Abendstunden. Wir hatten grosses Glück mit dem Wetter und sind vom Steg ins Wasser gesprungen. Grösse und Ausstattung der eigenen Kajüte lassen keinen Wunsch offen. Der Kühlschrank war mit netten Willkommens- Getränken gefüllt, frische Blumen auf dem Tisch.
Absolut gepflegt und sauber!
Hell und freundlich!
Nette Gastgeber-trotzdem absolute Privatsphäre!
Wir kommen sicherlich wieder und haben die Adresse im Freundeskreis gerne weiter gegeben.
Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland! Weiter so!
