I am retired and designed a completely new houseboat located at the city center of Amsterdam, nearby the Vondelpark and Museum square. To pay my new mortgage and to let guests enjoy my houseboat too, I rent out my houseboat a few nights a year according to Amsterdam City rental rules. Maximum 6 guests. Prefer 60 plus guests, families and quiet, nonsmoking guests. If I am not able to check you in, my co-hosts and houseboat neighbors will be standby.
