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 of the 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, café’s and cozy restaurants for you to enjoy your breakfast, 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 with other people. 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!!!
My name is Patricia, I live in the most beautiful city in the world on the best location and I love to share this experience with you by staying in my houseboat studio for an unforgettable stay.

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!

Wonderful views and superb location
I loved the location and the views from the boat house. The house was very nice and clean and the check in by the hostess was just perfect. Very nice and helpful!

Great place, a proper bolt hole to escape and yet be central to everything. Every one must go and see Jan, the owner of the bar diagonally opposite on the corner.What a character!

Live like a local on the water
Patricia's houseboat is conveniently located and we were able to walk to all the Amsterdam attractions we were interested in especially the fabulous Rijksmuseum. Like most European capitals space in this city is at a premium and accommodation expensive. Houseboats are the same but allow a brief pleasant experience of canal life. The deck is tiny but just enough space for 2 to carefully squeeze onto with a drink and not fall in ( until after the drink ) Passing boats generally give a wave. With a few minor tweaks this houseboat could be better as we did have issues with rubbish, cleanliness, a small bar fridge barely cooling drinks and a TV that didn’t work for us but with these fixed a pleasant stay is assured. It should be noted that there is no A/C on this boat just a fan over the bed and with summer warming up and all glass facing west we suspect it could get a little uncomfortable in high summer temperatures for older guests.

Our recent stay at the Galeforce1
Brouwersgracht is as far as I am concerned the nicest canal of Amsterdam. What's more the houseboat is really well located within the Brouwersgracht with a small terrace oriented towards the south offering great views. Plenty of nice cafes and eating facilities in the neighbourhood. The studio was comfortable and impeccably clean. We would love to come back.
Patricia : Hartelijk dank.
