Houseboat summary

Picture yourself on the wonderfully renovated authentic ship on the Amstel River, right in front of the iconic Skinny Bridge in the heart of Amsterdam. Enjoy the panoramic views from the wheelhouse or from the deck with bridge view and experience what it is like to live on a houseboat right in the city centre of Amsterdam! 

Houseboat description

Not only is the ship incredibly convenient, but the location is simply superb. The neighborhood couldn't be more quintessentially 'Amsterdam,' with charming bridges and picturesque canal houses surrounding your floating home. Starting your day with a cup of coffee on the deck, watching the famous Skinny Bridge and swans gliding by, is truly perfect.

Within a few minutes' walk, you'll find several of the city's highlights, such as Rembrandt Square, Waterloo Square, Muntplein, the Flower Market, Royal Theatre Carré, the city hall, and the Opera. A few minutes more and you'll reach the buzzing red light district and the Nieuwmarkt.

Now, let me tell you more about the recently renovated ship. Personally, I love the wheelhouse. Not only for its unique panoramic views but also for the bar I've set up here. It's the perfect place to have a drink with your loved ones while watching city life unfold.

Descending from the wheelhouse, you'll enter the large, spacious living room with an open kitchen. The abundance of portholes creates a cool nautical atmosphere and lets in plenty of light. With the use of natural materials, the place feels warm and cozy. The living room has a comfortable sofa bed for additional guests. The romantic master bedroom is equipped with a large, comfortable double bed.

Though numerous bars and restaurants are within a stone's throw of the ship, you can also prepare a great meal at home. The kitchen is fully equipped with a 4-burner stove, oven, dishwasher, fridge, coffee maker, and kettle. We also offer a washing machine.

The entire boat is equipped with central heating, ensuring you stay comfortably warm even on the coldest winter nights.

Kids are welcome, but please note that we are not responsible for their safety. Staying on a houseboat means there is water all around you. Keep this in mind when booking our boat.

I hope this gives you a great impression of the ship, but don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions. I'm always glad to help!

Getting to the boat is really easy. You can get there from Central Station with three metros in a few minutes. Only two stops. Exit at Waterloo Square and then a three minute walk.

About the area

Our boat is docked in the most beautiful and centered part of Amsterdam, in the Amstel river in front of the Hermitage Museum. It is a three minute walk from one of the most famous squares, the Rembrandt Square, five minutes away from Nieuwmarkt, the hotspot for the nightlife, restaurants and the famous Red Light district.

    A unique way to experience Amsterdam!

    After staying on the houseboat, I don't think we could ever explore Amsterdam any other way! Mathy's place is in a perfect location - close enough to walk to everything, but not in the chaos near Central Station. The houseboat was very clean and modern and plenty of space for a family of 4 (although bathroom and shower are tight given the layout). We loved sitting on the deck with a drink just watching the other boats go by on the canal. It was definitely worth it and we wouldn't hesitate to do it again!

    Romantic stay!

    Recently we started our holiday in Amsterdam on this beautiful houseboat. Walking onto this vessel was very impressive. Very clean and much more space than I expected. Mathys was there to meet us to check-in, was very friendly and showed us everything. Wifi worked great and it was handy having a fridge in the kitchen as well as the upstairs bar. The location was great, walking distance to restaurants, bars, markets, and shops, yet so quiet at night. The highlight was the romantic drinks at twilight on the deck overlooking the Amstel River watching all the boats cruised past. The overall experience was amazing and would definitely return here again.
