Houseboat description

Staying on this 100 year old former freight ship is like nothing else. Experience the houseboat life in your private studio with everything one could wish for. Enjoy the wonderful views of the city skyline from your private sundeck and watch the swans, ducks and small ships pass by.

Whilst being in a quiet part of the city centre, there are many popular destinations within walking distance. Think of the Dappermarket, Artis Zoo, IJ beer brewery, and lots of great bars and restaurants. 

Enjoy your own private space in this studio with all the amenities to have a comfortable and pleasant stay. You will sleep like a baby in the comfortable double bed, far away from tourist masses so you won't be bothered by them at all. Furthermore we offer a nice bathroom with a wonderful rain shower, sink and toilet. Soft towels, big and small, are included.

There is also a kitchenette, with a fridge, water boiler and coffee machine. It's not huge but very suitable to prepare a simple meal. Basic needs like tea, coffee, milk, sugar and more are provided.

We, the owner, lives on the boat so if you have any questions or wishes, we're there. We know Amsterdam and love to give you tips about where to go and what to do when you visit Hollands capital.

During the hot summer days you can go swimming in the canal, like many locals do. And during the winter you are assured to be comfortably warm since the studio is very well insulated and equipped with central heating. 

Last but not least we want you to know that we have great public transport connections. So you can get to any corner of the city easily. We also have two rental bikes available in case you want to travel 'Amsterdam style'. 

PS Please note: We will not be liable to you or to any other person for any direct, indirect, incidental, punitive or consequential loss, damage, cost or expense of any kind whatsoever and howsoever caused by staying on our boat and surroundings.

    We had a great stay at Bop & Eves place. How can you beat staying on a houseboat in Amsterdam. The location was excellent and we really enjoyed trying out Bops suggestions in the neighborhood.

    Fantastic! Show original

    It was a dream to stay here, we felt like kings and it was amazing to pretend that we really lived here! Wonderful location, quiet in the evenings, cool market nearby and very relaxing. Everything was very clean and perfect for us, if we needed anything we just had to knock. Fantastic hosts, friendly, helpful and down to earth. They made us feel welcome like family but left us space to do our own thing. We jumped off the boat and swam in canal... would recommend, lots of fun!! The bed is EPIC!! We have never slept so good in our lives. Please send details for the mattress... really please send! Best holiday yet!! Thank you

    Relaxing charming perfect...

    This cozy houseboat room is perfect. Incredibly relaxing sleep as the boat rocks almost imperatively. A little light rain also made it perfect. Mini kitchen outfitted for most things you might need, everything clean and quiet. Bop is a perfect host giving me a locals view to set up for exploring the city. It's a fantastic neighborhood to walk and explore and close to the museums and major touristy destinations. But getting lost in Amsterdam is the best. I highly recommend staying here in this comfy little houseboat room.
