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.

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.

Sander made us feel right at home in this guest suite on his family's houseboat. The listing is very accurate and the pictures are representative of the space and furnishings. The neighborhood is quiet at night, just on the outskirts of the city with easy access via public transport (tram or bus) to the city center. This is a perfect location for a family or couple looking to relax after a day of exploring Amsterdam. Would definitely recommend and hope to stay again in the future.

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!

Stay at Boutique Houseboat Cabin
It was a great pleasure to spend a couple of days at the Boutique Houseboat Cabin. Our host Sander was the most courteous and warm. The cabin itself was lively and well equipped. It was at a comfortable walking distance to restaurants, supermarkets, tram stops etc. Stay at this venue is thoroughly recommended.

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.

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.
