Heavenly, that is how we experience our houseboat. The amount of light coming in through the large windows creates a bright atmosphere and the view over the water gives us an instant holiday feeling - year in year out, every day again. And we love to share that great experience with you!
Our contemporary designed houseboat has two levels and is best described as light and bright. On the top level you will find a fully equipped open kitchen that offers a great view over the water of the Amstel River. Picture yourself sitting at the bar with a fresh brewed cup of coffee, making plans for the day while watching the swans, geese and ducks swim by. Without a doubt the perfect location to get started for another inspiring day in town.
The open kitchen is located next to the living room, spacious and a true lounge area. All the materials used when building our dreamboat are high-end wood, concrete and metal. This results in a typical rugged, yet warm atmosphere all through the boat.
And it gets even better: step outside and you will enter the vast floating private terrace of 48 square meters. Here you will find a large dining table, two sun loungers and a big hammock. Everything to make you comfortable during the many sunny hours that this place has to offer (facing the south, this is actually the most sunny place possible).
The lower floor is home to the bedrooms and bathroom. In the beautifully designed bathroom, you will find a great mosaic bath and a separate shower. All beds are high end quality, so a good night rest is assured.
The unique selling point of our houseboat is without a doubt the location. The Amstel River is very wide, giving a great view over the water - quite different from a houseboat located on the many canals of Amsterdam. You will stay right between the buzzing Pijp and Oost - two parts of the city that are known for their many cool bars, restaurants (foodies welcome!), shops and museums.
As you will see on the photo's the houseboat offers lots of space, making it perfectly suitable for families and friends. Let us know if you have any questions - look forward to welcome you aboard soon!

Ark van Amstel is a very special place where you can experience silence in the middle of the city. Living on the water means connection to nature. That is what I want to share with guests. Exploring the city but feel at home an experience living on the water like a local. Feel happy on the water.

This houseboat is actually a house on water, located on the Amstel with great views. The atmosphere is "chilled" and with an Asian inspiration - lots of Buddha's !!It is spacey and with a lot of space for a Family. We had 3 teenage children and they had to stay in rooms for children < 10 years but we used for many hours the "lounge area " with a huge sofa , free wifi and direct access to the water. The kitchen is also very nice and very well equipped.
The owner Masha did not respond very quickly to some of our initial questions , but everything turned out nicely and she checked in on us while staying on the boat and we had a fantastic stay.

Nice houseboat in a good location Show originalShow original
We liked it. There is a “garden boat” on the boat, which should probably be especially nice in summer. There are many nice cafes and restaurants in the immediate vicinity. Metro and hop-on hop-of bus / boat stops are quite close. Handover and processing went smoothly.

Spectacular River Experience
We had such a nice time sitting and relaxing on the waters edge with ducks and swans as our companions.
