Houseboat summary

We warmly welcome you aboard on our houseboat where we have a charming 2-bedroom apartment. You will truly embrace the amazing wide views over the river Amstel from the lounge areas of each bedroom, located on the top floor. And you will have a lovely place to sit outside, in front of the boat, and enjoy the morning sun.

Once inside, walk down the stairs and you will enter the 'submerged' part of our split level houseboat. Here you find the hallway with two adjacent bedrooms, a compact kitchen (no cooking facilities) and the bathroom.

The location is just perfect for anyone who appreciates a great night rest away from the tourist masses, yet enjoy a good connection with the inner city.

Houseboat description

To give you the best possible impression of both the boat and our neighborhood, let me tell you why we particularly love living here. First of all, a modern barge offers the best of both worlds: enjoy living on the water, yet have all the comfort of a modern luxury apartment.

About the location. This part of Amsterdam offers a unique combination of wide views over the water (this is about the widest part of the river), a grass field in front of our door, many trees and yet everything that makes Amsterdam the great city that it is. Great bars and restaurants at walking distance, interesting shops, galleries and of course the Museum Square and various parks within a reasonable distance.

Thanks to the variety of public transport connections (both tram, bus, train and metro) it is easy to get around from our houseboat. And after a long day in town, it is always a treat to get 'back on the nest' again: Just sit back and relax, enjoy the view and let the water do her magic while you enjoy a good glass of wine. 

The apartment, with private entrance, has two bedrooms. Each bedroom has a comfortable double bed (160 x 200 cm) and one has flatscreen digital television. Both rooms are separated, making it a very suitable option if you are traveling with two couples. As you can see on the pictures both bedrooms have a private lounge area on the top floor, reached from the bedroom. Without a doubt a great place to start and end a magnificent day in Amsterdam or just relax with a good book. What is especially nice about this room, is that you may expect the swans saying hello by knocking gently on the window. 

In the hallway you will find a mini-kitchen with all the basics you might need for preparing a nice breakfast and keep your drinks nice and cold. Here you will find a fridge, microwave, water cooker, cutlery, plates, glasses and cups, and a Nespresso coffee maker. 

The bathroom is warmly decorated with tasteful tiles and has a toilet, sink and shower. 

Although we live on the samen houseboat, we guarantee that you will have full privacy. Of course we have free high speed wifi all through the apartment. Note that that the boat has central heating all through the place, so you will be comfortably warm, even on the coldest winter days.

Last but not least, let me tell you that there are many great 'outdoor' things to do. Of course walking, cycling or running along the river is an experience in itself. But during the summer, you can also swim here. There is a popular swimming area just a few minutes walking away, in front of our favorite bar. 

Let us know if you have any questions - always glad to help giving you the best houseboat experience possible. Look forward to welcome you aboard on our floating dream!
