  1. The houseboat has a hallway entrance, kitchen, bathroom with shower and toilet and washing machine, living room with table and chairs, couch, TV. Two Separate bedrooms both with doublebed. Second separate toilet. All brand-new.

We warmly welcome families with children. There is a shared terrace fence in front of the boat, the windows have child locks and cleaning stuff is stored out of reach of children. Furthermore there are lots of toys for the kids to play with.

Note: we consider our boat as child-friendly, but note that you are and always will be responsible for the safety of your kids when staying on a houseboat. Staying on a houseboat simply means that there is always water around you and you have to be careful in every occasion. However this houseboat is a concrete stone box, so inside you don't have to worry at all. Also the entrance to the door is very steady and safe. Hardly any movement aboard too, cause the houseboat is tightly attached to the quai.

Houseboat owner


I am retired and have 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 4 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.

    Houseboat is great experience

    We where three friends spending 5 days in Amsterdam and had the pleasure of staying in Henk's houseboat. The check-in and check-out was very smooth and we had the pleasure of also meeting Henk who stayed in the neighbouring houseboat. The boat was clean and its amenities all works well - perhaps a minor thing was WiFi could have been faster. There are two toilets which was helpful. The shower is modern and nice - although only accessible from one of the bedrooms which means the boat works best for families.

    Perfect stay Show original

    We had a wonderful stay on Henk's boat. The boat was perfectly located, it was very nicely decorated and really very pleasant to live in for a family of 4. The host was very available and attentive.
