Houseboat summary

Be welcome our wonderful houseboat with waterside terrace on the Amstel river. We live here ourselves and during our holidays we love to share this floating home with you. The boat offers a large living room, two bedrooms, a well equipped kitchen and two terraces. 

Houseboat description

Our home has lots of windows and is therefore very light and bright. During the summer you can enjoy the private water side terrace, and on the street side there is a child proof terrace as well. On this side there is a nice green boulevard with lots of trees, making it a very convenient place to be on hot summer days. A refreshing swim right from your floating holiday home is another option to cool off of course.

The location offers the best of both worlds. You are close to the city centre and public transport takes you to every corner in town easily. On the other hand our street is considered to be very calm, and thanks to a large stretch of grass and trees between our boat and the street, you will feel almost like being out of town at the same time. A safe haven and a warm place to get back after a busy day in town. 

You can prepare a whole meal in our fully equipped kitchen, but there are also lots of great restaurants within walking distance. Also you will find many bars with outdoor terraces in the neighborhood, but we personally think that our own terrace is the best place to sit back and relax while swans and ducks swim by. This is one of the reasons why we like living on the water so much. The water and the reflections on the ceiling seem to take away every worry you might have. 

Our street is called Weesperzijde and is close to the Pijp area, as well as Amstel Station. 

Hope to have given you a good impression of our houseboat and neighborhood, and welcome you aboard soon!

How to get there

Amstel Station is located just 900 meters away, a nice 10 minute walk. Using public transport (metro 51, 53 and 54) it takes you just 5 minutes to reach our houseboat. 

About the area

Our boat is docked along the quay of the majestic River Amstel. We live on the wide part of the river, so you have wide views and you will experience a true sense of freedom here. At night our street is really quiet so you are assured to have a great night rest. There are numerous great bars and restaurants within walking distance, so you absolutely don't have to go into the city centre to enjoy good food and drinks.


Within walking distance you will find the wonderful Oosterpark and Sarphatipark (both large city parks, great to relax in the summer time). The buzzing Pijp area is also within walking distance.

    Perfect houseboat for a Amsterdam holiday

    Staying with Irene was a real treat. The houseboat offers everything you might need. Not surprisingly because the owners live here themselves. The kitchen is very well equipped and everything is just as described and shown on the pics. The view and location however are even better: a very special place. We have experience a tranquillity that we never expected in a busy city such as Amsterdam. And at the same time the centre is always nearby. Thanks for sharing your wonderful floating home with us!
