Houseboat summary

Enjoy Amsterdam like a local and stay at this wonderful floating villa. Although the location is super central, you will be amazed by the laid back atmosphere in our harbor - the oldest in Amsterdam.

The view from the top bedroom is simply amazing and you can really sense the centuries of rich naval history all around you. Our houseboat sleeps 4 in total and offers the level of luxury you would expect of a high-end apartment, but then floating on one of the most amazing spots in Amsterdam!

Houseboat description

The houseboat, just five minutes walking from Central Station, has central heating so you are assured to be comfortably warm all year round. From the boat you will enjoy the harbor views, with many ancient ships docked on one side, and the Maritime Museum and a VOC-ship on the other. 

The rooms are spacious, super clean and tidy. You are our honored guest and hospitality is our middle name. On the boat we offer everything to make your houseboat holiday as relaxed as possible. There is a fully equipped kitchen to prepare your own meal and the bathroom with large bath is also very convenient.

Within a few minutes walking you will find many point of interest already. Along the harbor you will find the NEMO Science museum (great for kids!), the Maritime Museum and some of the finest places to eat and drink. Think of the super laid back bar/restaurant Hannekes Book and the Sea Palace, a superb floating Chinese restaurant. 

On the city side you will find the red light district juts minutes away, the Nieuwmarkt and lots of historical sights such as the Dam Square and the Jordaan Area. There are just too many things to do and see in our part of town to mention, but you get the idea: you won't be bored.

You will have one part of the boat to yourself completely, so you don't have to share it with anyone. The host lives on the other part of the boat, but we can assure that you won't even notice this. 

Just around the corner there is a good bike rental shop, organizing guided tours as well.

What our guests appreciate the most about our houseboat:

* The superb location

* The boat is very clean and tidy

* Nice and comfortable interior

* Well equipped kitchen

* The ever changing views over the water

* The large and comfortable bathroom with bath and shower

About the area

The Oosterdok is the oldest harbor in town and offers a fine combination of city views and a truly maritime experience. Although the boat is located near a road and close to the many must-sees of Amsterdam, you will enjoy a good night rest. From the boat it is just a few minutes walking to the NEMO Science Museum, Maritime Museum, the red light district and the Nieuwmarkt.

    Fabulous Amsterdam Stay

    We stayed as a family with two children here and it was perfect. Our girls were thrilled with the room upstairs and loved the novelty of staying on a boat. The boat is beautifully appointed and we had a fantastic stay. Perfect location to the train and we walked everywhere we visited in Amsterdam. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others, thanks for a wonderful stay.

    Great place to stay

    We had a very pleasant experience using this houseboat. Jeffrey turned up with the key as arranged. The accommodation was warm and plenty of areas to cook and eat in. Good shower comfy bed downstairs. The only problem was steep stairs to the upstairs bedroom but the grandchildren didn’t mind and found it very exciting!!

    Quaint houseboat in Amsterdam city centre

    The houseboat was quaint and the perfect place to stay after a full day of exploring. Near to the red light district for some eye opening site-seeing and very close to Amsterdam Centraal. I would recommend Jeremy's place to everyone.

    Highly recommend!

    This house boat is in a great location, and was the perfect size for our group of 4. The extras such as Nespresso machine & pods were a nice touch. Jeffrey the owner was friendly and ease to deal with. Will definitely be back - Thanks Jeffrey!
