Houseboat summary

Our houseboat truly feels like a diamond, shining bright in one of the oldest harbors of the city, just three minutes walking from Central Station.

Houseboat description

A true eye-catcher of the watervilla is the rugged steel stairs with an integrated fire place on each floor that seems to grow right through the whole houseboat. Also in the kitchen area, we have used lots of steel and stone to create a cool, tough atmosphere. Yet, the large windows and sliding door let in lots of light. The happy red kitchen table give the whole place a happy touch, putting a broad smile on your face as soon as you enter the boat.

The location is just perfect. When arriving at Central Station it is just a three minute walk before you arrive at the boat. This is a lovely short walk along the water, and it gives a good first impression of our beloved city. On arrival we warmly welcome you aboard 'El Diamante'.

On the top floor you have access to the comfortable and light living room with a sitting and dining area. Go down the stairs to enter another great space. On the lower deck you will find the central room with adjacent large bedroom with large and comfortable double bed. Also this area has lots of windows and portholes, letting in lots of day light. Furthermore there is one extra double bed in the central room.

The bathroom is designed to fully indulge yourself and have a real spa-experience. The bath is our favorite place. Not in the least because of the idea that you're taking a bath below water level: a wonderful place to relax after an exciting day in town.

Last but not least let me tell you something about the area where we live. This stationary houseboat is docked along the quay of a charming, picturesque harbor - literally minutes away from the buzzing city center. Yet the area is nice and quiet at night, without tourist masses passing by. It is a true hidden gem right within the city. Around the corner you find theAmsterdam Central Station, on the other side of the water there is an amazing floating Chinese restaurant, the city library, and the Nemo science museum. Also within a few minutes walking there is the red light district, Nieuwmarkt, Dam Square etc.

Before you book, please note:

  • Children below 8 years old are not allowed on board - babies are.
  • The fireplace can only be used after host approval and when no 'stookalerts' are active from the government.

How to get there

From the moment you arrive at Central Station it is just a few minutes walking to reach our houseboat. Of course we will share the exact details after your booking is confirmed. 

About the area

Our neighborhood is defined by one of the oldest harbors of Amsterdam. Not only the harbor, but also the old buildings and of course the red light district are typical locations that belong to a naval hot spot.  

Although the ship is located super central, you will be impressed by the tranquility that is found here. No tourist masses passing by, but a laid back and almost rural atmosphere.

Excellent! 4.9/5

    Excellent Spring visit to Amsterdam

    This Spring we chose to visit the Netherlands to see family in Amsterdam and make a trip to the famous Keukenhof gardens. We are a family of 4 and typically search for rentable properties. Staying on a houseboat has always been a dream for us and getting to experience it Amsterdam was even more special.

    Nina's houseboat is in a fantastic location that allows you easy access to the train station and walk the city. The place is spacious and more than accommodated our family. The fireplace is also a great add-on that I recommend. WiFi worked great and our host Laura was more than accommodating with all our requests. The views from the boat particularly at night with the lights of the city coming off the water were great. Definitely recommend this place for any families traveling that want a unique Dutch experience!

    Fantastic boat and amazing location

    Stayed here for three nights in May, and had a wonderful time. The houseboat is perfect, and in a great location. A few minutes walk from Central Station / center of Amsterdam, yet situated off the tourist paths so you can fully relax and enjoy the view. Well worth popping into Cafe Pollux across the road to sample the local IPA. Hosts were excellent and on hand if needed. Overall, I don't think we could have chosen a better place to stay.

    Wonderful stay

    Our family of 3 had a very comfortable stay on Nina's lovely houseboat. Our host was so helpful, communicative, and gracious. The houseboat is located conveniently within Centraal Station and provided us with a peaceful place to recharge after a long day of sightseeing!

    A great stay

    A great spot. The boat was magic but the service and attentiveness was even better. Our hosts were, in short, extraordinary. Nothing was to hard. 5 star all the way. Thanks for a great stay.

    Dream house!

    What an absolutely amazing find! Convenient location to the city center, fantastic views of Central Station and a killer hammock to kick back in. Truly remarkable decor in all rooms and the kitchen was large and welcoming. Would highly recommend this location! Our host was friendly and responsive.
