Houseboat summary

Urban living on the lake 

Only 15 minutes away (by tram) from the city centre, you will find comfort and tranquility in our beautifull watervilla. Take a dip in the lake, chill out on the terrace and enjoy the comfort of a nicely decorated modern houseboat.


Houseboat description

This watervilla has 2 terraces on the south facing the water and small harbour. The house has 3 stories: Downstairs is the bathroom with rainshower and bath and a comfortable boxpring (180 x 210 cm). On groundlevel is the kitchen with cookisland, dinnertable and everything else you need to eat and relax. (On this level is also an artstudio which will be closed off). On the upper deck you'll find the big livingroom, a pantry and the lounge terrace with a lounge sofa.

We will personally check you in and out and provide you with inside tips about Amsterdam. If during your stay there are questions etc. we are standby and only a half our away.

Be aware of the fact that our villa is a floating house, so there can be some movement when wind get's harsh.

We love to share our beautiful house and surroundings with you and are looking forward to welcome you aboard!

Houseboat owner


I was born in Amsterdam and lived here all my live. I'm very proud of my city and like to tell you all about it. Me and my wife also have a small cottage with a big garden on the countryside, just half an hour away from Amsterdam. When we are out of the city, it is nice to share our great spot with others from all over the world. We've been traveling ourselves extensively and like to meet fellow travelers. So far we had great reviews from people staying in our beautiful watervilla.
So, again, we're looking forward to welcome you in our home.

Warm greetings, Inge and Ruud

    Awesome modern houseboat in Amsterdam

    We had a great stay in this new modern floating apartment just 10-15 mins by tram to city centre. Brilliant hosts - very thoughtful and caring to make our brief stay the best!

    Great hosts on a superb houseboat

    Inge and her partner were very direct in communication: When we asked about bike-rental close to the house, they did the research for us in advance and recommended a good place nearby. - In their houseboat they made us feel at home with different beverages in the fridge and took the time to answer all our questions

    Felt at home at this floating villa from the start

    Inge and Ruud are very friendly and authentic people. They made us feel at home from the very first moment. After a cup of coffee they gave us a tour through the house, showed and explaned everything and gave us lots of tipps and information. The villa is exactly as nice, airy and luxurious as shown on the picture.
