The little monsters. They are not coming in the guest cabins, but they do walk on the deck sometimes.

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,

    Clean and comfortable houseboat

    The host Sietske is very kind and helpful, and the houseboat is clean and comfortable. It is a very cozy place and I just loved to sleep here, softly rocking on the canal where this houseboat is located.

    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.

    Great city, awesome houseboat, nice host

    We stayed two nights on Sietskes houseboat and we had a great time there. Sietske was there to welcome us and she showed us everything. She also had a lot of tips for our stay in Amsterdam. The houseboat is nicely done up and is located near the city. You can easily walk from the central station to the boat. The houseboat is very comfortable and equipped with everything you need. There is also a little place outside, where we spend the evenings. It couldn't have been better.

    Perfect stay

    We had a wonderful stay at Sietske's houseboat. The boat is located at a perfect place, everything is close by, easy to find with public transport. Sietske is a super nice, welcoming, warm host with a good humor. ;) She gave us good tips where to go, what to visit etc. The beds were comfortable and the wooden stove gave a perfect addition to this beautiful little place. I highly recommend it to everyone to stay at Sietske's, it is an experience you'll never regret!

    Awesome houseboat in Amsterdam

    From the very first moment we stepped 'on board ' of this awesome houseboat we felt at home with Sietske (the owner and our host), Boobie (the houseboat cat). And there is no better way to explore Amsterdam and feel like a local. The boat is cozy, comfortable with lots of attention to details and right in the center of this great city!
