Houseboat description

Situated on one of the most beautiful canals, THE BROUWERSGRACHT, you will find houseboat GALEFORCE ONE. A houseboat with a self-catering studio for your holiday rental or city break.

Imagine having an unforgettable stay in a houseboat on one ofthe most beautiful canals right in the most popular area of Amsterdam, THE JORDAAN. You will find most points of interest within walking distance and there is an abundance of small pubs, cafs andcozy restaurants for you to enjoy yourbreakfast,lunch or dinner all around the houseboat.

If you are looking for a special holiday, you will not find a better location to experience staying on a houseboat. The connection with the water and the animals floating past your window while sitting on your private deck. Swans and ducks begging for a scrap of bread and all kinds of small boats passing by with people enjoying a leisurely boat ride. It's the ultimate way to enjoy the best Amsterdam has to offer on the water.

Now something more about the place itself. The studio offers all the privacy you want and you don't need to share any space only the front door with me. In the studio, you will find a very comfortable double bed from where you have a water view. Furthermore, there is enough closet space and a fan to ensure a cool breeze during hot summer days. The wide windows with sliding doors let in lots of light and give access to a small waterside terrace. A wonderful place to just sit back and relax while the always-changing city views pass by. Now you will feel like truly like a real 'Amsterdammer'.

In the private bathroom, you will find a walk-in shower, sink, and toilet.

I hope to have given you the best impression possible and look forward to welcoming you aboard!

About the area

Location! Location! Location! That's most important where you are, well the Gaiforce One Houseboat is situated in just about the best and nicest location in Amsterdam. In the very heart of the 18th century old city-centre. If you look outside you have the feeling you find yourself in a 18th century oil painting. All around you there are 3 to 400 year old canal-houses and warehouses. It can't get better than that! It's amazing!

The houseboat is located on the canal-belt in THE JORDAAN, which used to be the poorest area of Amsterdam in the olden days, but is now the most trendy and favoured area by locals and tourists. There is a maze of narrow streets, with many lovely restaurants, pubs and quaint shops. On almost every corner you will find an café with an outdoor terrace, where you can enjoy a drink while watching the hustle and bustle of life on the canals.

In the 17th/18th century Amsterdam was a thriving trading post where ships brought their ware from all over the world to be stored in the warehouses of The Brouwersgracht. These warehouses you still see today and from your window! when staying on The Guest-Houseboat, these are now converted into very popular luxury and trendy loft apartments, sought after by locals and ex-pats.

Apart from the beauty of the area, the houseboat is ideally located for your visits to many of the important sights and a mere 10 minutes walk from the Central Station, would you want to travel outside of Amsterdam to for instance, The Hague (40 minutes by train), Haarlem (15 minutes), Rotterdam(50 minutes) or the airport ( 15 minutes) even the beach is just 20 minutes by train.

So you see... LOCATION! LOCATION! LOCATION!!!

    A dream coming true

    I always wanted to stay a few days on a houseboat but never knew what to expect. Galeforce One has been more than what I expected. The houseboat is centrally located and had everything I needed. The bed was so comfortable and the view AMAZING! I enjoyed every minute and did not even wanted to go exploring the area but only wanted to stay inside. Patricia has been so friendly, welcoming and assisting me. This will be my place to stay in the future when I am in Amsterdam.

    Nice houseboat

    Nice houseboat (or better half of a houseboat). You don't book the entire boat but only a studio. The studio is very nice and clean. The location is absolutely perfect for a city trip. We would come back.

    The perfect houseboat experience in Amsterdam

    Our visit to Amsterdam was given a silver lining thanks to this wonderful houseboat rental. The location is really in the heart of the Jordaan area, with a few very nice bars and restaurants literally around the corner. Our favorite place was Café Thijssen, not only because of the great beer selection and terrace, but the whole atmosphere is really laid back and 'local'. The Saturday Market is also a highlight, with an amazing choice of food - the fish is delicious! And of course the houseboat apartment itself: very nicely decorated, well maintained, clean and comfortable. And of course the water view, with ducks and swans swimming by. We could not have a more authentic 'Amsterdam houseboat experience'. Thanks for having us and we hope to be back this summer!
