Tot 1 juni is mijn woonboot voor 4 personen tegen kostprijs te huur voor zorgpersoneel en andere professionals die helpen de Corona-crisis te bestrijden. Bij de aanvraag graag vermelden voor welke instantie u werkt. Indien er budget is om overnachtingen te declareren, zou ik graag een bescheiden tarief van 30 euro/nacht in rekening brengen. Zo niet, dan kunt u tegen kostprijs verblijven (schoonmaakkosten).
Until June 1, my houseboat for 4 persons can be rented at cost for healthcare staff and other professionals who help to fight the Corona crisis. If there is a budget to declare overnight stays, I would like to charge a modest rate of 30 euros / night. If not, you can stay at cost (cleaning costs).
Looking for a high-end but cosy houseboat in a relaxed neighborhood? Look no further, because you have just found it. We're 'houseboaters' ourselves and have tried to built 'the perfect houseboat'. Look forward to share this experience with you!
Note: some of the furniture has been replaced recently by newer and more comfortable items. So please be aware that the interior is slightly different, but no less convenient.
Have a unique experience of Amsterdam on ‘the perfect houseboat’, situated on a picturesque canal among the real local Amsterdammers of Oud-West.
As fellow boat-locals in Oud-West, without a doubt one of the most authentic and original parts of the city, we are proud to say that this area does not have any tourist traps and you can truly experience great variety, food and shops among the locals.
And yet must-sees such as the Dam Square, Vondelpark, Anne Frank House, Westerkerk and the Leidse Square are located at walking distance!
Meander to the oldest part of the city called the Jordaan to enjoy the boutique shopping and fantastic food, or walk to the theatre district and enjoy the great nightlife around the Leidse Square.
Enjoy the great view of one of the most beautiful canals in Amsterdam: the Da Costagracht. Feel the peace and quiet in the heart of the city whilst being enchanted by the rippling water, swans and ducks. Nature has never been so close in the heart of one of the most historical cities in the world.
Our houseboat has large sliding windows with view at the waterside. This offers not only a unique sight of the Amsterdam water life, but also a typical reflexion on the ceiling, especially at night when the old street lanterns are lit. There is simply no new age CD, whale sounds or Nepalese singing bowl that can beat that!
About the boat
The boat offers a distinctive combination of retro vintage elements such as a curved ceiling and wooden walls with modern luxury. This was quite a challenge, but we succeeded. Therefore you can watch the flatscreen tv (70 channels+) from a genuine chair of Gerrit Rietveld, one of the most famous Dutch furniture designers, and have a dinner at the vintage table of Holland’s design master Louis van Teeffelen whilst listening to your own music plugged in at the docking station.
Bathroom and bedrooms
The exceptional bathroom is close to a spa. The bath, half sunk in the floor, and rain shower give view on the porthole which looks out over the canal- one of the preserved details of this old houseboat. Not only the Italian tiles and design taps, but also the sheer size of the bathroom contributes to the ultimate bathing experience.
The Arden sleeps 4 people comfortably. It has two separate bedrooms with high standard quality beds that can be used either as a twin or a double bed. All rooms have water view and are provided with WiFi.
Fully equipped kitchen
The kitchen is designed for your convenience. The stylish white, minimal design covers a complete range of all the necessary utilities: induction cooker, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, oven and a washing machine with dryer.
The drawers are fully stocked with all you can think of in order to make a complete diner for your family or friends.
We have made sure even that the most experienced chef cook will feel at home. And if you don’t feel like cooking, rest assured, you are surrounded by some of the best restaurants in town.
To the best of our knowledge and ability, we simply did everything, and continue to do so, to make you feel at home in our gorgeous part of Amsterdam!

About the area
Amsterdam 'Oud West' is without the place that can be described as 'hip and happening'!
Juul and Iris are houseboaters and simply love living on the water. With their experience in mind they have built 'the perfect houseboat', to share the experience of being in touch with nature and yet enjoy the comfort of a modern life style.

Great stay at a wonderful houseboat in Amsterdam
We had an absolute amazing time at this wonderful houseboat. Unfortutely we did not meet the owner as they had a baby just a week before, but he was very quick to response to all our questions. The location was simply superb and we would stay here again without thinking a single moment. We highly recommend this lovely houseboat in Amsterdam!
