It is a spacious and comfortable place on a quiet canal. You can see ducks from the windows. Two bedrooms, one bathroom and a nice living room to enjoy. It is decorated in a modern style and peaceful colors. The kitchen has all the appliances and a dishwasher. In the living room there is a comfortable sofa and TV with cable.
This houseboat is a full-fledged, updated and stylish apartment on the water! It has been recently renovated everything is in perfect condition. Radiant / floor-heating, insulation, updated utilities and new appliances. Connectivity and entertainment all works great. The decor is tasteful, sleek and stylish. You can enjoy sipping yummy coffee and looking out the large windows onto the canal in the mornings.
The living room offers lots of space and the open fully equipped kitchen is perfect for preparing meals during your stay. We offer a large 5-stove burner with an oven and a microwave, as well as a dish washer, large fridge with freezer, cooker, coffee maker and all utensils for your convenience. And if you don't like cooking, be assured that there are countless great local restaurants within a few minutes walking, as well ass cool bars.
The location on the verge of the Jordaan is just perfect, within walking distance from the city center with shopping and lots of place of interest nearby. To give you an impression: the Anne Frank House and Westerkerk are located about 5 minutes walking away. Want to go to the Leidseplein (Leidse Square), just hop on the tram and you will be there literally in a few minutes. Public transit is just around the corner, and airport transfer is a breeze.
As a host I'm responsive and attentive to your needs. I will meet you in person during check-in. You will have a wonderful experience. Look forward to welcome you aboard and share the houseboat life with you!
How to get there
From Central Station you just hop on tram 13 and after about 10 minutes you get of again, around the corner of our houseboat. Super easy and convenient!
About the area
Our houseboat is located right between the buzzing Jordaan area and the cozy 'Old West' with lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Within 1 minute walking you will find already 5 restaurants and the same amount of bars. A super market called 'Sterk' with over 500 beers, and the most amazing wines and champagnes can be found right across the street. What's not to like!
We love to meet people, enjoy traveling and we are happy to host the guest in your lovely houseboat.

Easter in Amsterdam
Staying on Isadora’s houseboat was a smart decision; it is stylish, comfortable and in a great location. It is so easy to get around from there, whether on foot or the easily-accessed trams and buses that are a few steps away. The neighbourhood is full of great restaurants and cafés as well as a large grocery store a block away. In the mornings it was wonderful to sit in front of the open windows with a coffee and watch the boats going by. But it made leaving the boat a bit difficult.
Communicating with Isadora was very easy and she answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend a houseboat experience for anyone considering it.

Great hosts and nice hosts. The location is close to everything and was hoping with activity. There's a grocery store on the corner of you want to stock up on snacks and drinks. Isadora was very responsive when the houseboat had a minor electrical issue. The issue was resolved immediately. There were bath towels but as we were there ladies we could have used more and didn't think to ask. We would have washed the towels (and also the tablecloth - sorry) but there is no washer. Also be sure to bring a converter for 110 electrical since the houseboat has standard European outlets. If you forget to bring one you can purchase it at any number of convenience stores on Rozengracht. Would definitely recommend a stay at Isadora's houseboat.

Great houseboat in the heart of Amsterdam
Beautifully located in a lovely part of the city. Access to great restaurants and stores. Right across from a store that sells 4000 plus beer and wine. On the route for the boat tours and on off canal boat access. Five minutes from Anne Frank museum “requires on line tickets”. The houseboat was amazing, expensive but with this access worth the extra. Access to the boat was easy and no issues. The place is beautiful with everything needed for the stay. Definitely worth giving an excellent review of.

Lovely weekend in Amsterdam (October 2019)
We spent the weekend on Isadora's houseboat and it totally blew us away and surpassed all expectations. In short the houseboat is;
* Clean, tidy and beautifally decorated
*In a stunning location next to a little bridge with great big windows that open up onto the canal
*Easy to find and only a 20 minute walk into the heart of Amsterdam
*Has everything onboard you will need including comfy beds, towels, utensils etc...
We absolutely loved it and will definetly be booking again to come back soon! 10/10.

We had a lovely stay on this houseboat. Very clean, bright & so cosy. We had a couple of ducks swim up to our window each day which was so sweet. The boat was 10min walk to Dam Square. So easy to find our way around. We will definitely be returning, the host was very kind and made our stay very comfortable. Xx
