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 its 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.

About the area
Our houseboat 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. It offers a perfect combination of relaxation, character and the liveliness of the city. We recommend to take your breakfast with commuters in Bakkerswinkel Neeltje, drink a beer with locals in Cafe De Zuid or dine with Dutch celebrities at the Harbor Club.
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.

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 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.

The stay was fantastic
The owners are really kind and helpful people. They gave us all kind of tips for shops, e.g. bike rental, and lists with the best restaurants and activities to do in Amsterdam.
Our own (steep) entrance gave us all the privacy we needed and allowed us to enter and leave the boat whenever we wanted.
The boat itself was in a good shape, the cabin is perfect for two people and smoking in the boat was allowed too. Close to the boat is a concrete football field so you can bring a ball if you want. Unfortunately we didn’t managed to swim but we saw a few people swim and the water looked really good and clear.
All in all I can just recommend the boat and if you visit Amsterdam I can recommend to rent a bike. It’s the best way to get anywhere in the city and driving to the city will give you a beautiful view over the canal.

Super nice, super comfortable Show originalShow original
We had already visited several boats in A-dam, but Marieke and Sander's surpassed everything. We had a large comfortable suite with everything your heart desires. Super nice, super comfortable and furnished with a lot of love. We loved it so much we just stayed on the boat and enjoyed the spring sunshine. But that was ok because we already know A-dam.😊 It's wonderful to relax and let yourself be pampered. Marieke and Sander are two charming and lovely hosts. They were always available for questions etc. and have great tips. As soon as we arrived we felt at home with good, trusted friends. We liked it very much and we will definitely come again. Greetings from Maria and Nina

Genuinely nice hosts. Enjoyed a comfortable stay in the boat house. Thanks for the beer & wine which was a nice touch. Obviously would have enjoyed more if we had visited in springtime and could have sat out enjoying the views and probably a swim too.
We believe the time period you choose to visit should not affect your review of the houseboat.
