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.

Perfect hosts and a perfect space
Sander and family were great hosts and it was an absolute pleasure, right from booking to stay in the lovely spacious suite we made to feel welcome. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a warm and welcoming manner. Sander was a great host and was happy to help with any questions we had, and even gave us some really good recommendations. Everything was well thought of and sander was a great host. Location was perfect, really easy short ride to city centre and airport. I would highly recommend this suite and Sander. If I didn’t want to see the rest of the world I would definitely stay again.

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!

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.

Very nice suite on family house boat
The two room are very stylish and well kept. The family that owns the boat was very friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is nice, has easy access to the trolley, and there are two nice restaurants and a grocery store down the block.

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.
