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.
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.

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.
We live on boats and we love boats. It makes us super happy to welcome you on board and share the pleasures of water living with you.

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!

Relaxing stay for a family of four
We had a great stay for three nights in August. The houseboat provided us with a bit of luxury, after a busy road trip around the Netherlands. We had a very friendly welcome, loved the location and the outside space was terrific!

A cherished experience we’ll never forget
There’s no better way to stay in Amsterdam. Nina, Femke and Philipp took such good care of us, and we had the most beautiful, comfortable stay. Everything was spotless and well-appointed, and we made memories we’ll hold dear for the rest of our lives.
