I welcome you aboard this charming private studio on my houseboat, built in 1907 and docked just 3 minutes walking from Central Station. Lots of interesting places are found around the corner, such as the Red Light District, Dam Square, Nieuwmarkt and the Maritime Museum. Still, our harbor is surprisingly quiet and easy going. No tourist masses, just locals living their happy lives. Be one of them!
The studio is a wonderful getaway for couples who are looking for a charming, clean and cozy home-away-from-home. There is a comfortable double bed, as well as a lounge corner. The couch can be converted to a bed in case you come with 3 persons. The studio is newly decorated but still has some nice original details, such as the portholes and the wooden 100 year old roof panels.
Furthermore there is a kitchenette with a sink and coffee maker. You won’t miss the cooking facilities because of the many great and affordable restaurants within walking distance of the houseboat. A great place to have your first coffee in the morning is the terrace in front of the boat. Here you can enjoy the scenery around the boat, with the wonderful historic houses on one side and the old harbor on the other side.
Last but not least there is also a bathroom with shower and sink.
Now something about the location. The houseboat is docked in a very nice laid back city centre harbor, close to the Central Station. You will find the Jordaan Area on the West side, and the Waterloo Square and Rembrand Square to the South. All the other parts of town are very easy to reach with public transport, and of course by bike. There is a bike rental just around the corner.
Note that the boat is fully equipped with central heating, so you are assured to be comfortably warm all year round. Your apartment has a private entrance and you don't need to share anything with anyone.
Hope to have given you the best possible impression, but don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions - always glad to help!

Note that we are docked next to the quay and we have neighbors on the other side. So you don't have direct views over the water from the apartment. The harbor however will certainly give you a very unique nautical feeling.
How to get there
Just walk 3 minutes to the East and you will see our harbor right away. Could not be easier.
About the area
Our harbor is one of the oldest in Amsterdam and you can still feel the rich history thanks to the many old ships and the wonderful houses across the street. Although we live pretty much in the middle of town, you will be surprised by the quietness our quay has to offer. The reason it is a dead end where only people who live here come.
The following places are located within a few minutes walking:
* Central Station
* Zeedijk and Red Light District
* Nieuwmarkt (great bars, restaurants and terraces)
* Hannekes Boom (unique bar with amazing outside terrace, great bears and good food)
* Pollux (really laid back bar, right across the street)
* Nemo Science Museum
* Maritime Museum with a replica of the VOC Ship 'Amsterdam'
* Dam Square
I live on one of the most wonderful location in Amsterdam, and love you to stay here too!

Perfect Stay, Perfect Host, Great Location
Family holiday from London. Authentic Amsterdam experience, local host was most welcoming and very helpful, perfect location, all amenities. Very very quiet, and safe, considering only a short walk from major attractions. Outside space to sit on quiet cobbled street was a gift. Thank you for an amazing stay!

Perfect location! Great stay
We loved our 1st visit to a boathouse. This one is the way to go for couples seeking a quite resting location yet within minutes of the Red Light district and many many restaurants and bars. The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star rating was there were a few cosmetic issues that could improve the ambiance such as fresh paint, a few pictures on the wall, minor things. But hey, who comes to Amsterdam to stay in the room?! I will stay here again without a doubt.

Very nice boat
Really nice trip in your apartment. Very comfortable and well placed in the center of Amsterdam. However, due to the temperature, the boat were very hot!

Nice and secure
Very nice place, close to all amenities, clean and tidy. It needs a booklet on boat ie: pharmacy, local supermarket, local numbers from police to cab. Needs a radio or television.
