Houseboat summary

Staying at this houseboat may best be described as a lesson in taking a break from everything that is on your mind. Step aboard and forget your day-to-day humdrum while enjoying everything that this great place has to offer. Not in the least because of the unique location: next to city the center just off the beaten path but with lots of great restaurants, museums and bars around the corner - or even closer.

Houseboat description

Rough steel from the outside, inside you will enjoy all the luxury you want.

You're invited to stay at this unique floating bed and breakfast, hosted in a great way by Sietske. Feel free to have (self served) breakfast on your private sunny deck terrace where you also can have a smoke and a drink. Uber cool is probably the best way to describe the atmosphere that has been established here by both the host and the many great people who have stayed here. 

Two cabins, one big deluxe cabin and one smaller cabin. 
Both have private entrances, comfortable big double bed's, and en suite bathroom's with shower, towels, sheets, floor heating and kitchenettes. 
Coming with two guests you will stay automatically in the deluxe cabin, coming with three or four guests you will also stay in the smaller cabin. And all together you have a lot of space and all the privacy you want.

The houseboat is brand new built by the Sietske, stylish and very comfy decorated. 

Your booking includes bed linen, towels, coffee and tea making facilities,  WiFi and a city map.

On your arrival Sietske will draw on a map lots of tips and nice places for you to go to. You special wishes? Do let her know, she will fill you in on the secrets of Amsterdam.

The garden is a great plus, and a fantastic place to enjoy your breakfast. And not to forget to have a drink or - yes, it's this kind of neighborhood - make a campfire. Not a bad place to end a great day in the buzzing city center. And here is a secret joke: greet all the people passing by as if you have lived here for years. You will never have felt more at home abroad before.

The street where this floating home is located is green and has a very village like atmosphere. The people living in this houseboat community really know and help each other whenever needed. The typical thing about this area is that is actually quite close to city center, yet you won't find masses of tourists passing by. It is quite a well kept secret so to speak.

While public transport is just two minutes walking away, you will find many great attractions within walking distance. Such as the great bar/restaurant Hannekes Boom, Science Museum Nemo, the red light district and the library with it's great views and food on the top floor. 

Over all we promise a one of a kind houseboat experience - warmly welcome you aboard!

Houseboat owner


Dear traveler,

Talking about my self is a bit strange but what I can do, is tell you that I am a very cheerful person and basically very interested in other people and every-day things - often so much more interesting than you think at first sight.

At this time I am converting my new cargo ship into a houseboat where you can live in. It is a amazing crazy project, a dream come true. You are more then welcome to have a look at it when staying with me at the houseboat.

My way of life is like 'live and let live' and when we meet on board I love to have a chat and drink together. Running my B&B business is an important part of my life, so I better make as much fun as possible while doing it.

You are most welcome and I am already looking forward to meet you!

Kindest regards,

    Fantastic time on an Amsterdam houseboat

    Had a fantastic stay, such a warm and cosy boat house. Great location only a 15 min walk into centre or a 5 min tram ride. We had a lovely warm reception from the host, who was very accommodating, gave us great advise on things to do during our stay in Amsterdam. Definitely recommend hiring the recreational boat - this was a real highlight during our houseboat vacation with Sietske.

    Almost a shame to go to bed...

    We had no regret at all about staying on this great houseboat. It was relaxing, warm and with a great view over the river. I actually would rather sit on the chair, watching the great views from the window, than to sleep at night. The great rocking chair in the green garden on the road side was a really great place to chill out and work a bit. The food was great, especially the fresh strawberries and egg with cheese. It was a great pleasure to talk about our cultures, with sweet Sietske, an amazing host.

    Lovely Houseboat in Amsterdam

    The houseboat Tante Piet is a very comfortable place to stay in Amsterdam. With 15 minutes to the center per foot, the location is very good. Despite the central location, it is still very quiet, green and you even have a little place outside on the dock to sit, bbq,...

    The boat was quite tidy, but a few spots were not thoroughly enough cleaned.

    There is also the possibility to take a little trip in a small motor boat for 55€ (which is, in my opinion, a very good price for it) through the canals of Amsterdam. Sadly we couldn't start the engine:( 

    Sietske is a very nice and courteous host. She told us many places to go in Amsterdam and even had a welcome present for us;)

    We really enjoyed our stay at The Laid Back Lady and I would recommend it to everyone who wants to go to Amsterdam and be in a little different "hotel"!

    We stayed at the lovely houseboat for 4 nights. It was just perfect. The owner is very nice and helpful, the location is close to the city and a sight in itself. We stayed there with our two small kids and they just loved it. We would recommend the boat any time!
