Houseboat summary

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.

Houseboat description

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.

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.

    Exceeded expectations

    Lovely houseboat. It’s in a perfect location. Clean and tidy. Perfect place to relax after a busy day in the centre. Right next to a local swim spot for sunbathing and relaxing. Lovely peaceful evenings. Hosts were great.

    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.

    Simply EXCELLENT

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the houseboat, it was just simply excellent! The host, the location and accommodation, could not fault a thing. The only regret is we only stayed for two nights. We will return! Thank you Sander & Marieke.

    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.

    Second visit!

    I came to stay a month ago on the boat and it was so nice I came back again the next time I was in Amsterdam. This time the weather was gorgeous and I got to swim in the natural pool right next to the boat. The location really is idyllic! Also visited a fantastic restaurant nearby serving Chinese hot-pot and BBQ - well worth a visit (Chengdu). The hosts are very welcoming and everything is made very easy for your visit. Will be coming back to stay when I next work in town. A perfect peaceful retreat after work.
